Ok, so here's the set up for a fortified camp. Going to have to cut down some trees to make this shit work. Probably best to build the huts first, then the armory, followed by the pallisade and then finish it up with longhouse, dining hall and guard towers. Pallisade should also be broad enough to have a walkway on it. Once we start growing it can be expanded as needed. But until then it should be a decently safe base of operations.

We need a nice big longhouse to sleep in. I drew it as stone construction, but wood would be fine if we're short on stone. A cooking area should be out front, so things can be roasted and stewed and all that, with no need for getting smoke all about people's business. A pen is designated for livestock, we have goats and judging from the environment probably also wild swine. That can be fenced off easily with rough lumber. The existing hut will suffice as a storehouse for arms, as well as wealth and whatever else. It may need to expand soonish, but it's fine for the time being. Walls and towers are a good idea, but we should get this basic stuff up first. I would suggest building a wall at least after this stuff is taken care of, but this will take a good while already, so we should get to that when we get to it.

jukashi's hair is really a hairpiece, gnoll's new gobbo design are mostly on mohawks or just a toupée, im fine with both styles. gnoll's gobbos look more punk, and are acting like it too.

so. about the quest. are we supposed to take the dorf fort approach? because i cant really see a heading here, but we can get a wool production and diplomacy will feel fishy anyway.

maybe we can make a religion and raise clerics?
No. 36930 ID: f5fe2f

Goblins with ears that point up are traditional according to mainstream tradion. Droopy-eared goblins are traditional according to /tg/ tradition.

We follow a demon. That's not religion, that's ordinary goblin society: The demon is a badass, so we serve him. Adding religion to the mix wouldn't do much.

Delivery method needs work. Just sneak in and drop mushrooms in their dinners? Nah. We need to cause a great feast to happen, so it all gets to them at once, and make sure it's in the soup (or something) and then we get them all at once. The problem is: How do we ensure a feast, and how do we get our agents (who are a different color than humans and thus easily detectable) to tamper with the food without arousing suspicion?

uhhh. SNEAK it into the food SUPPLY. as in taint the grain while it's on the wagon.

No. 36961 ID: f0e3ae

Personally, I just love both the old and new designs, they are both very awesome. Current design is more "hard", as in, looks like it takes much more effort with the rewards being easier to distinguish characters and better looks.
I personally like the hair, ears, and eyes both before and now.

I'd prefer enslaving, pillaging, conquering, etc to burning and butchering.

Conquest > Destruction... We should declare worship of our demon overlord (Xom?) of chaos the official state religion once we conquer enough to be considered one. Integrating other races into this giant chaos worshipping culture of all races would be awesome.

But I do like your idea of tainting the human's food supplies with mind altering drugs (no poison though). For one thing, it is in line with the primary goal our demon overlord gave us (sow chaos)

"oi Phillip, why's there mushrooms in this here grain?"
"dunno, toss 'em out"
"queer-ass merchant trying to short-change us, I reckon"

Also it would be to dilute even if they magically did just decide to include everything that happened to be in their grain in their food. We want it to hit everybody all at once.

The guy's name is lurezcamor, it's in the name field of the first post of the thread.
There's nothing to indicate he has anything to do with chaos in the way you're referring to it.
No. 36968 ID: b8e86f

come on you guys know better than that right? I mean making powdered drugs, stuff that will dissolve into drinks and disperse into food, stuff that's hard to spot right away.

And yes, for the sake of Chaos and Discord, non-lethal drugs would be best. Also, looting, pillaging and burning do not require heaps of dead bodies.

We must also develop a calling card for places we have dropped into chaos. Perhaps a drunk, crazy goat left in Town Hall?
No. 36969 ID: 35e1a0

meaning the best place to hit would be a winery or something that makes drinks.
No. 36972 ID: 856690


Reason is with this one.
I agree. I like the goat calling card, very funny.
Anyway, we aren't interested in destruction, the order of the day is chaos and discord, which are more fun and not boring, if we destroy everything then DL will be pissed
No. 36973 ID: 35e1a0

if this is DF based then digging to the adamantine and making a floating eye sized hole to the underworld, so we can bargain with the demons to leave the gobbos alone but are free to run about the rest of the country would be a good plan.
No. 36977 ID: f5fe2f

Even if we use something undetectable, we want it to all hit at once, otherwise we're just wasting it.

Waste of a perfectly good goat.

obviously we would put the crappiest goat there. like, a goat so bad it make boxbot seem useful.

No. 36997 ID: 1854db

No. 37014 ID: f0e3ae

It doesn't require it, I just want to make sure it doesn't INVOLVE it...
Although burning tends to end badly. Even if people evacuate they can end up starving, and what will you steal from them next month if they are all homeless and hungry?

I love the idea of a crazy drunk goat at town square as a calling card, HILARIOUS!

So I see several good paths:
1. Conquest: Conquer and integrate everyone, state religion is the worship of lurezcamor, children must attend school where they are brainwashed into following him and encouraged to train as his clerics. Clerics = awesome.
2. Raiders & tricksters: Raid nearby towns leaving a drunk goat, get alchemists to make hallucinogenics and spike water with them. Sell them too because people love getting high and its worth lots of money.
3. A little bit of both: start a conquering empire, but don't conquer everything... leave a target (other nation) for the clerics of lurezcamor to attack.

Don't do those:
1. Destroyers: Kill everyone else, burn down shit.

Besides, I owe him for leading me to this website, I'd otherwise have never read Romanticar.
So if he's feeling left out because I didn't criticize his goblins' hair then criticizing it is the least I could do I suppose. He may have wanted something else so I'll wait for him to confirm that's what he wanted though.

You've got some odd taste.

Digging underground is most efficient in Dwarf Fortress, and this setting is probably based off of DF. However, the fact that the practice of digging out housing is not only viable but preferable in that game doesn't mean that the same is the case here. In DF that's partially an artifact of the system and partly because you play as dwarves, who are traditionally subterranean. For goblins we're probably better off just living above ground.
No. 37073 ID: 88a12d

by above ground you mean on huge obsidian towers vacated by the demons that they serve

digging stoes or pathways below earth is good. im also partial to secret storehouses underground. safe passages to the surrounding of the nearby human farm/villa/city is the best way to steal and go unnoticed.

if we find a river we may run into issues since the tunnels would eventually collapse, but it may serve as a second food source along with water as well as a moat.
No. 37074 ID: f0e3ae

>the fact that the practice of digging out housing is not only viable but preferable in that game doesn't mean that the same is the case here.
True, but it also doesn't mean that the opposite is true.
The fact that this isn't DF (which I am not familiar with) just means it isn't DF. Some things can work in both, some things don't.
I suggested digging underground because of several reasons:
1. Tradition.
2. 3D space, more efficient placement.
3. Good defenses, especially against humans.
4. Cheap as dirt (heh) building material.
5. Digging provides housing AND mining at the same time.
No. 37078 ID: 383006

It depends on how realistic the setting is. In real life, trying to make subterranean housing without modern materials would be extremely difficult, and probably end in collapse and suffocation.
No. 37080 ID: f5fe2f

Well, even apart from hazards such as potential collapse, or gas pockets and poor airflow, or whatever else, there's the fact that taking a pick and digging into bedrock is fucking hard work. I could easily build a wood frame house in the time it would take to excavate a cellar from bedrock. Admittedly I've only tried this once ever, and it's possible that it's easier in places with softer stone, but that would just exacerbate the possibility of cave-ins, and even with very soft stone, the goblins could easily build a dozen huts in the time it would take to dig out the space of volume of one.
No. 37093 ID: 383006

If you can even dig down to the bedrock in the first place.

You are being very strict and scientific about this considering we are a magic floating eye in a goat enchanted and sent forth by a demon to sow chaos via goblins...

Magic or fantasy elements existing in the world doesn't mean common sense or ordinary physics don't exist.

Do traditional RPG goblins really live in underground tunnels? Traditional fairy tail goblins do - but they are nothing like RPG-style goblins other than being short. (they're super strong, extremely clever and powerful enchanters and illusionists). I remember most fantasy RPG style goblins living in huts and villages and stuff, but they're pretty vaguely defined across different settings and systems really.

No. 37528 ID: fd7008

All the articles are just about what fantasy centaurs/goblins/angels/etc. are generally. I thought it was going to be about how people feel like they have to make their version different in some way or something, whereas it's actually about using a generally defined set of characteristics so the reader knows what the author is talking about.

They are like shitty wikipedia articles with incorrect information rather than some kind of actual trope thing.
No. 37538 ID: 2563d4

That sadly describes 95% of TVTropes these days.

IIRC, Dwarf Fortress gobbos are mostly surface-dwellers (with underground road networks, says the DF wiki?), and since I believe that's from where the pre-redesign ones drew inspiration, probably your best bet for an appeal to nature on where they "should" build crap. :V
No. 37539 ID: f0e3ae

sadly this is true.
It is basically a list of non standard variations of a classic monster. Take the "our vampires are different" article.
The classic vampires must drink blood, are stronger and faster then human, are killed by sunlight, hate garlic, silver, etc.
So "our vampires are different" lists exceptions to that, such as how in twilight vampires are not harmed by the sun, and glitter. etc.
At least, that is the intent.
No. 37550 ID: f5fe2f

The new design is actually a bit closer to DF goblins, since they have hair, though it's less similar to the ones in the goblin camp mod where they were all female, and goblin hair in DF has a fairly narrow array of possible colors, including mostly pinks and purples.
