This will be a simple semi-freeform game with some rules which I hope won't limit player action, but instead, enrich the world and make conflict resolution easier.

As many players as want can join and can join at any time. Keep in mind it will be a long quest a few weeks or so; you can post 2 actions per round around is every day or every time 5 players posted. Fluff-posts and diplomatic actions are not limited by this.

We start in the Early Iron Age and Civs don't know one another so RP first contact and exploration. Also no tech-rushing!

If you want to take secret actions like sending out spies PM me on Discord, ah... AND ALL DRAMA IS TO BE KEPT ON THE DISCORD SERVER: https://discord.gg/cDSByP

> Breeding Speed:

> Magic aptitude:

There will be other "Stats" I will be keeping track off and everyone starts with 5's across the board, stat growth depends on the actions you take and they also grow passively over time:
> Military Power
- Militarisation - percentage of Population capable of war and overall civilian fighting capability
- Troop Quality - experience, training, etc of troops
> Economic Power:
- Urbanization - density of industrial sites
- Trade Power - the amount of trade going in and out (trade can only be done per trade route!)
> *Naval Power - amount of ships contributes to Economic and Military power.
> Technology Level
> Cultural Power - you gain it from writing fluff, the stronger the culture the harder to wipe out it is. If a low culture nation conquers a high culture one's city you get what happened with Rome when they conquered Greece. (they adopt the conquered culture instead of assimilating or whipping it out) Quality of fluff matters too.

Starting Fluff: The Hobgoblins of Arakzi founded their state in the wake of several conflicts with the Bugbear and Goblins of the forests and Taiga. Eventually conquering them through superior arms and tactics, the Hobgoblins sit at the top of the social strata of Arakzi with Goblins at the bottom of the totem pole. Their society, born out of conflict, is regimented, militaristic, and strictly caste-based dependent upon race for positioning. Hobgoblins may be found in the leadership of any job type, but goblins and bugbears exist primarily to serve - as labor in the case of Goblins or as soldiers in the case of Bugbears. Binding the society together is a rigid honor code that places personal honor and service above every other virtue. Dishonor is punished with social stigmatization and redeemable only through deed or suicide. Lies, trickery, and deceit are all accepted and laudable in the service of another greater authority. Of those authorities, none are greater than the Domnakal, supreme ruler of all Goblinoids.

Nation & Race Name: Mroen City-state/ Humans and Plains elves
Capital Name: Mroen
Colour: Red
Starting Location: North-west continent, Plains near the northern rivers.
Starting Fluff: Around 2,000 years ago, the area of “modern” Mroen was first settled by tribes of humans, and plains elves. Over the years, the tribes coalesced into minor towns, then after numerous skirmish-wars, the territory was united under a city of the name Mroen. It’s access to the river nearby allowed for better irrigation and fishing, giving it a sizable surplus of food in those times. The conquest of the other tribes and villages was slow, with equal parts diplomacy and warfare. In those times, many were crippled when a drought swept the area, leaving many to starve and die. Mroen, however, was able to endure thanks to it’s aforementioned food surpluses. With its greatest rivals in the region crippled, the elders of the city reached out to them, and demanded they join or be put to spearpoint. The results were much as one would expect. In the end, the area was firmly under the control of the City-state, and with the discovery of iron deposits, entered the iron age. Their military relies on solid corps of spearmen and heavy infantry with light elements of cavalry and skirmishing forces, and armies fighting Mroen would be looking at what looked like bronze armored hedge rows of spears and blocks of armored swordsmen. The economy relies heavily on agriculture and fishing, with no real artisan class to speak of aside from the occasional smith or carpenter.
Special Mechanic: [Tribal Allegiances]- Tribes and other unaligned villages in an area can be persuaded to give the Mroen information about the local area, be that resources, other civs or otherwise.

OK, all nations added to the map and accepted. From now on you can take action. Some rules concerning that.

1. You expand 2d8 tiles per expansion action.
2. You will encounter wild tribes when exploring.
3. Keep in mind none of you know that the other exists.

All nations are as fine as they are. The Kroxian ability for statues to awaken in a defensive war is a bit op so instead of 70% starting a success chance it'll have 50%.

Dio's ability... I don't know what you even want to roll for. Establishing connections with the underground of foreign nations after meeting?

Actions:

1. With our lands secure for the most part, and our population increasing, we require more lands to expand into. Downriver scouts have spotted great mountains, and even more plains. Settlers are gathered and sent into the frontier to establish towns and camps to make a foothold in the area.

2. For a long time, our military has consisted of levies from the former tribes that made up our lands. With our population being what it is now, and with the military minds of our city coming to an agreement, our people shall now be protected by a unified, professional army. Soldiers will need to purchase what equipment they can afford, but with pay, they will prove to be a dedicated fighting force to defend our lands and expand our interests.

1. Expand
The Goblinoid state spreads its influence down the river tributaries, establishing new farmsteads and villages in good growing locations as they move. Goblins are driven forward, first to settle Hobgoblin plantations and industrial farms. There they grow grain, edible fungi, rice, and beans for consumption and export to Karpol and its satellite towns.

2. Develop Economy
The unification of the Goblinoids has led to some changes in the economic structure to facilitate the new caste system. Hobgoblin and to a much lesser extent Bugbear artisans are supported by large numbers of goblin domestic servants. Aided in such a way, the Masters and Journeymen can focus on high-skill labor while leaving the menial tasks to the Goblin snaga.

Nation & Race Name: Theocracy of Lyria / Lyrian (Pale Humans)
Capital Name: Yula
Colour: Purple
Starting Location: See Map
Starting Fluff: Lyrians stopped wandering the taigas in the south, and unified when their Goddess appeared before them and showed them the way to the Lake of Mirrors. A few of the elder members of the early Lyrian tribes gathered around and formed a council, claiming that they would see the will of the Goddess done in this new sacred land, as long as Lyrian people would remain faithful and united. Lyrians have a very strict faith, praying for repentance for even the most inane of sins. They are very culturally rich, defensive in nature and are open to trading with other civilizations as long as they respect their Goddess, borders and their traditions.
Special Mechanic: Pardoners - The secret service and special force under the Exarch Council's ruling, they keep order inside the civilization's borders exceptionally and can culturally influence other nations in secret, so that Lyrian faith can prevail and other civs are less prone to attack the Theocracy.

As you expand things go well and along the plains as you encounter many Elven tribes willing to join your cause or leave into other lands after minor payments. The land is empty and dangerous, but nothing your tribal warriors did not see before. The expansion goes smoothly until the mountains where your supplies seem to go missing and people getting lost. You can officially claim to own the mountains, but not settle there or truly control the land yet.

Establishing a career army brings with it the benefit of a sharp increase in troop quality and industrial output by the common man who has not to worry about being trained for war. Still this causes a vast majority of civilians to be untrained and make recruitment of troops a longer undertaking as you need to train them from scratch.

>>3571311
The Rivers provide ample soil for growing plants, but there seem to be problems with the mushrooms. Raids from wild goblins are rare as they see no reason to attack their kin.

Specialization increases the economical efficiency but decreases versatility. This drives a further divide between the 3 allied races and the ones in the lowest strata are anything, but happy about their place in it and some goblins can be seen escaping into the wild.
> please do race tables for all 3 races, not one for all 3 especially as you introduce specialization

>>3571358
The simple drawings which were long used to communicate about herds of pandasheeps suddenly evolved as a young boy was told to tell his uncle that a daughter was born to his father. Quickly he scribbled onto pandasheep skin a drawing of a pandasheep next to a human girl drawing. For the words sound similar in their tongue. And in this way, the written language is born. Still clunky, and slow but a form of text nonetheless is quickly gaining traction.

As you expand North you have to fight your way through Goblin tribe after Goblin tribe, but the goal is accomplished. Even taking control of an important strait. Finally, you encounter a foreign people akin to yourself, but hairless wearing weird clothing, killing one of their own by drowning.

1. Expand

The Exarch Council, seeing as the population is starting to grow quickly, rule the need to expand south, as to reclaim the taigas of old that once served as the untamed home of their ancestors.

2. Acquire resources

Timber is needed to pass the winter in the cold seasons, as the climate in Yula is far from forgiving at those times. If it were not for the lake to temperate things a bit, the Theocracy would need to take more desperate measures. Taking advantage of their planned expansion, Lyrians are going to build sawmills in the cold forests beyond the lake, as to export wood and materials to the capital.

While finishing off the green hairless monos, Xui saw a group of Mono who are also hairless and wearing strange Clothes. They were dunking one of them into the water. He thought they were playing a game and wanted to join. But the one they were dunking in the water didn't come up for a long time. "Oh, they killed him. That's not nice." Xui thought of leaving and forgetting about this, but he knew the people would want to know about it. So if he went back to inform the masters. They pondered a bit until they decided to send their strongest and wisest Mooks to meet with these hairless Mono. A curious bunch who play deadly games; most strange beings. They meet in the same place.

1. Civil Assimilation
A key part of the unions of Goblinoids is the conclusion of the conflicts that had plagued them. The Hobgoblins did not merely defeat the Goblinoids, they also broke them. In a ceremony symbolizing final victory the Hobgoblin God Vykul consumed the Bugbear and Goblin Gods, replacing them with himself. It is crucial that Goblins and Bugbears understand their new roles in this union, and that will come at the whip and the carrot if necessary. To do this the Hobgoblin Domnakal begins reordering society along a more bureaucratic line. Through delegating power to local authorities of each of the three races but with final power resting with his legal and military authority he can better control the tri-racial make-up of his empire. Goblins with the right aptitude can test to be admitted into the ranks of this bureaucracy where they can serve low level functions and be the Domnakal's face to his tiny subjects. Bugbears are generally stupid but strong and easily led by those with force of personality. For this reason, finding and co-opting Bugbear leadership is essential as it is easier to keep them in line than the Goblins who have a degree of crafty intelligence. Hobgoblins, being the privileged race have the easiest time achieving space in the budding state offices and hold all of the top positions.

2. Expand West

Nation & Race Name: Mroen City-state/ Humans and Plains elves
Capital Name: Mroen
Colour: Red
Starting Location: North-west continent, Plains near the northern rivers.
Starting Fluff: Around 2,000 years ago, the area of “modern” Mroen was first settled by tribes of humans, and plains elves. Over the years, the tribes coalesced into minor towns, then after numerous skirmish-wars, the territory was united under a city of the name Mroen. It’s access to the river nearby allowed for better irrigation and fishing, giving it a sizable surplus of food in those times. The conquest of the other tribes and villages was slow, with equal parts diplomacy and warfare. In those times, many were crippled when a drought swept the area, leaving many to starve and die. Mroen, however, was able to endure thanks to it’s aforementioned food surpluses. With its greatest rivals in the region crippled, the elders of the city reached out to them, and demanded they join or be put to spearpoint. The results were much as one would expect. In the end, the area was firmly under the control of the City-state, and with the discovery of iron deposits, entered the iron age. Their military relies on solid corps of spearmen and heavy infantry with light elements of cavalry and skirmishing forces, and armies fighting Mroen would be looking at what looked like bronze armored hedge rows of spears and blocks of armored swordsmen. The economy relies heavily on agriculture and fishing, with no real artisan class to speak of aside from the occasional smith or carpenter.
Special Mechanic: [Tribal Allegiances]- Tribes and other unaligned villages in an area can be persuaded to give the Mroen information about the local area, be that resources, other civs or otherwise.

In an unassuming part of the world, not in the mountains nor in the sea a metal vessel falls from great heights, the container of greed is about the size of a ship of the line, and within it is contained a strange race of short faced traders.

The Shtihnyr (Shtih-near, shtih as in shtick with the c and k replaced with an h and nere as in nearby) reside within.

The Shtihnyr are a race whose motives and psychology are alien to the races of this world, many of them value things which most would find of little value while scoffing at the thought of things like unpractical precious metals and gems being as any real value.

They are a practical race, having no cares for things such as aesthetics or spirituality, this can be seen in their clothing and homes, as they only wear what is most practical (usually decently sanitary brown cloaks and whatever metal trinkets are required for them) and their homes alongside their vehicles are hodgepodge combinations of whatever they find to be most efficient, or sometimes even just the laziest solution as to not cut into times for trade and barter. For instance one might, instead of repairing a sword with whatever metal it was made of simply solder on whatever decent metals they have on hand and proceed with a quick sharpening so that they can get back to whatever one was doing before then.

Their diets are also xenic in nature, as they are actually able to live off of fairly minimal diets, which can include anything biological that isn’t innately poisonous, such as rotten or mummified meat or some weeds from off the side of the road.

They have no concept of love or leisure, and they raise their young in a manner similar to those lowly creatures which abandon their young at birth. The gaining of the goods that they believe will get them the best goods is what they truly value. Though they may be assumed to perhaps suffer from species wide sociopathy they aren’t without their concessions, as they will comply with any trade policies the people they are trading with has unless that policy warrants smuggling or resorting to the black market, and that of course means every caravan of goods from a distant land will always come with some illegal substance or tool peddlers, though the masters of the caravans will always try to distance themselves from such dealings as long as doing so has big risks involved which could sabotage profits.

They work on a system of meritocratic prestige, the more wealthy one is the more members or other bands they will attract, creating large caravans which dwarf the single unit caravans of Shtihnyr who fly solo. (Cont.)

Mroen Lore: Plains Elves

Pale skinned folk, the Plains elves could easily be mistaken as human from a distance, with ears ending in only a slight point, similar body structure to humans, and only slightly higher magical aptitude. Plains elves have inhabited the area where Mroen lies for about as long as humans have, and their pre-modern cultures were similar to that of humanity in the area. While incredibly similar to humans, and also able to reproduce with humans, their offspring cannot bare further children. This fact leads to marriages between the two races being rare, but not unheard of. The elves live slightly longer than humans, and have a slightly longer gestation time before birth. The elves are able to perform just as well as their human counterparts in almost all things, and prefer roles as lightly armored phalanx spearmen.

(Pictured, a Shtihnyr)
Due to their nature Shtihnyr would only go to war in the defence of their trade or their race, as they all understand that keeping the Shtihnyr race dominant in the markets is the most valuable commodity in the world. Instances of large numbers of Shtihnyr caravans going to war are referred to in Shtihnyr society as “Choi Hoii Chiyr”, or in a more common tongue “Mercenary Jihads”, which are never organized around extermination (unless that is absolutely required) but are instead done out of a desire to open up foreign markets.

Though they can be fairly trusted if one is under the protection of the law if they can they will kill if it brings them profit, even if it’s just a simple knife as long as the reward outweighs the risk they will go in for the kill.

Racial traits:
Limbs:
2 main arms, 2 secondary (like the alien queen from alien, but longer and simply more slender than the main limbs)
2-4 legs
Average weight 1.4 times that of an average human male, regional variation may apply

Starting location: wherever the OP sees fit, just not in a mountain or ocean, and no civs are super close by. And not on a small island or tundra as well.

Shtihnyr have no technology of their own, with one exception of course but are extremely good at adapting the technologies of those they have acquired goods from, though they are very poor at manufacturing. This means that regional variations may exist between trade hubs, for instance trade region 1 could have blue iron weapons and armor due to their proximity to a power which produces that, but trade region 2 has white iron weapons and armor and purple dust engines both of which are produced by the nation near them.

Founding city: Pha Saan Chann

Color: dark tan (the color of the desert, but darker)

Special Traits:

Bow to No Masters Without Price:
The Shtihnyr civilization has no unified leader, each city has its own leader, most every leader does the same thing when it comes to governing style and grudges are held city by city, but only if those grudges are still justifiable.

Shtihnyr will only pay lip service to deities if doing so has benefits, and will drop all ties if more profit can be found elsewhere with the talk of a different prophet.

Traders at heart:
Shtihnyr cannot colonize past their cities unless the province has a Trade Hub (city), mine or other resource gathering thing upon it, and they do not farm for food.

Divided when it is convenient:
Shtihnyr will fight against powers who wish genocide upon them but will not hesitate to kill others of their kind if the others have sweared loyalty to a power which reduces the local profits. (Cont.)
>>
>>3571672
Cultureless Rulers:
Shtihnyr cannot absorb or be absorbed fully into an empire, if they take over an empire they serve as pure benefits and cost analysis leaders.

Black Marketeers:
Shtihnyr will buy off of the black market when they can, but not if there is too much at stake, even then they will tend to hire middle men to do it for them anyways.

Necrong Coh:
The one original non standard technology of the Shtihnyr the necrong coh is a device used to turn the carcasses of large beasts into undead vehicles. The engines are made using instinctual techniques and each engine weighs at least a ton, necrotic organisms made this way have no sapience within them and are not affected by attacks directed at souls. These engines to not work as life extension devices unless you would like to be a soulless corpse and cannot inherit non-physical abilities from its former life.

A few extra things I forgot to mention:

Gift of the Ancients:
All Shtihnyr are capable of speaking the language of a specimen upon first contact with a specimen which they would otherwise not be able to communicate with, all speakers who are not heavily enough exposed to the language cannot speak it outside of said contexts. (Only a Shtyhnyr can be affected by this rule) Any Shtihnyr can also read the bare minimum required to understand a text if a living specimen is near enough In time or interaction. This rule does not apply to non-sentient creatures or creatures whose language can cause insanity or tongues which the Shtihnyr is not able to naturally produce using its body unless special equipment is acquired by that specific Shtihnyr.

Species trait:
Asexual:
All Shtihnyr are male-like but lack sexual reproduction unless some kind of exception is involved. (Namely magic)

You enter the empty wastelands and slowly reclaim the wildlands stretching your population pretty thin, but not encountering much resistance.

Establishing the sawmills goes well, but the problem is the cold. Oftentimes work is only possible half the year as the Tundra is even colder than the capital and in those months caravans with food (mainly fish from the lake) need to be brought to the wood chippers straining the food supplies.

>>3571550
You face many problems during your expansion, fighting local tribe after local tribe until you hit a wall you can't pass. Another nation is just as civilized as you have already taken most of the river and you find yourself unable to advance.

Training the forces goes well thanks to the harsh lessons from the expansion.

>>3571564
The expansion goes well, but local goblin and Bugbear tribes seem to be now fleeing from you instead of being assimilated.

Goblin unrest is at a high when they see their Gods killed and the Bugbears seem to be even more furious. The introduction of minor administrative roles for Goblins helps with their loyalty, but what will happen with the Bugbears?
> The halfbreed question
As the Goblinoid society becomes more close knit halfbreeds are born Demihobs (half hobgoblin half goblin), Bugblins (bugbear + goblin) and the rarest Hobbugbears (hobgoblin+ bugbears). Those hybrids are infertile and uncommon, but have a hard time finding a place in society, what will theirp lace in society be?

>>3571575
A new City is founded and the Monos celebrate! Still, Goblinoid tribes roam the countryside, far from all of them are hostile though and a few tribes send delegates who are willing to cooperate with the City, for the City accepting to take in their sick and unable to survive in the wild.

The mono's learn basic animal riding as well as craftsmanship.

Nation & Race Name: Theocracy of Lyria / Lyrian (Pale Humans)
Capital Name: Yula
Colour: Purple
Starting Location: See Map
Starting Fluff: Lyrians stopped wandering the taigas in the south, and unified when their Goddess appeared before them and showed them the way to the Lake of Mirrors. A few of the elder members of the early Lyrian tribes gathered around and formed a council, claiming that they would see the will of the Goddess done in this new sacred land, as long as Lyrian people would remain faithful and united. Lyrians have a very strict faith, praying for repentance for even the most inane of sins. They are very culturally rich, defensive in nature and are open to trading with other civilizations as long as they respect their Goddess, borders and their traditions.
Special Mechanic: Pardoners - The secret service and special force under the Exarch Council's ruling, they keep order inside the civilization's borders exceptionally and can culturally influence other nations in secret, so that Lyrian faith can prevail and other civs are less prone to attack the Theocracy.

The Exarchs are pleased with the expansion, although the food problem is heavily discussed before deciding on a course of action to solve the shortage in the southern parts of the taiga, where the cold and hunger bites the hardest.

1. Establish a working harbour. The river seems navigable enough, being wide and abundant in water in the warmer seasons and leading into the sea down at the border. It will probably freeze on the coldest days of winter, but the Exarchs heavily stress the importance of the supply to the southern camps, and rule the lumberjacks and blacksmiths to work together and create iron and bronze rams for the nose of the fishing boats, so that they can break the ice as they travel and deliver the supplies to the sawmills succesfully.

2. Raise the economy. With the recent influx of wood and prime resources from the settlements in the south, tithes are starting to fall short in comparison. The Exarchs start to preach to the populace about the will of the Goddess, and how she wishes for Lyrians to achieve abundance and prosperity. They begin raising taxation, coining currency, and working on the internal market and its affairs as to ensure that the economy adapts well to further expansions of Lyrian domains.

Starting Fluff: The clans of the Kagofon where not so long ago divided, still the Ivoy one raised above all, thanks to is might, is superior weapons and armours of iron, is words of unity and the creation of a city of stone instead of villages of wood and mud. All the other Kagofon clans accepted their superiority and rule. The current Ivoy chief has name himself emperor after all this victories and glory. The Kagofon are ready to expand even more showing their might and glory to all. A Kagofon stands tall to 2 meters to 3 when he reaches adulthood. They have a disdain for magic and they think no warrior should use it. Their kin is extremely protective and possesive of eachother, and of anything that is theirs from a simple cheap wood object to land. This is shown in their lands as they mark, with symbols and some times escrements great stones and great trees. The shells of the dead Kagofon are protected, and considered a connection with the ancestors. They have no gods, but they seek and ask questions to their ancestors. The Kagofon in battle use spears, warcleavers, maces, shields for melee and for range the favourite slingshots and the recent bows.

Good. I agree
>necrong coh
Each device weighs at least 1 ton so I can’t mass revive. Especially since even the greatest of mounts can only ever hope of carrying only a few which can only be used on large physically based creatures. And it isn’t exactly easy to craft any kind of engine, including magically boosted one’s with nomad tier smelting tech levels, including ones of such immense size. But okay I guess on the ritual part, it would take at best weeks to make one assuming you could ever hope to get the metal required either way so fine.
>action 1:
This new home is not the wasteland they has expected to crash upon, it seemed in their journey something changed, perhaps they were simply set off course by a degree or two a while back and landed off from the dry wastes of their preferred destination.

Initially conflict is had with some of the local tribes, who have no written tongue nor a lack of hostility towards foreigners.

So instead the Shtihnyr decide it will be best to bunker in for the meantime, expanding their population in a quick pace as to create the forces required to fend off these savages.

Action 2:
Using pieces of the wreck they fashion tools, spears and other weapons with which they will arm themselves with. Any metal which is taken is swiftly replaced with chopped wood for the meantime. The forges which came with the ship, though they are barely able to smith the black iron of the ship’s walls are used to do this, sadly they are in a condition which is barely good enough to do so. Using the designs of the broken ones new forges are drafted up and repairs are designed for when the forges fails.

The threat of the tribes keeps the peace, different bands are drafted up which plan on going their separate ways eventually.

Nation&Race Name: Arakzi - Goblinoids
Capital Name: Karpol
Colour: Red
Starting Location: See Map
Starting Fluff: The Hobgoblins of Arakzi founded their state in the wake of several conflicts with the Bugbear and Goblins of the forests and Taiga. Eventually conquering them through superior arms and tactics, the Hobgoblins sit at the top of the social strata of Arakzi with Goblins at the bottom of the totem pole. Their society, born out of conflict, is regimented, militaristic, and strictly caste-based dependent upon race for positioning. Hobgoblins may be found in the leadership of any job type, but goblins and bugbears exist primarily to serve - as labor in the case of Goblins or as soldiers in the case of Bugbears. Binding the society together is a rigid honor code that places personal honor and service above every other virtue. Dishonor is punished with social stigmatization and redeemable only through deed or suicide. Lies, trickery, and deceit are all accepted and laudable in the service of another greater authority. Of those authorities, none are greater than the Domnakal, supreme ruler of all Goblinoids.

1. Urbanization
As the population grows so too do some of the well situated towns with access to resources. Further downriver at the end of the two tributaries two more cities appear: Nurzar and Arak. For population density is similar to that of Karpol, with the majority being Goblins, but power structures mostly held by Hobgoblins and Bugbears. From these new administrative locations the sprawling farmland that was settled earlier can be better controlled and its resources more readily exploited by means of local administrators from the cities.

2. Halfbreeds and Fugitives
The constant flight of Goblinoid tribes is upsetting to the Domankal, but not something that can't be solved by constant pursuit. The Halfbreed question is an interesting one. These halfbreeds are useful, if a biological deadend. Combining traits of their parents has resulted in stronger, smarter goblinoids and there are plenty of places that such individuals can thrive in the developing new state. While almost exclusively confined to urban locations due to the towns and cities more cosmopolitan nature, these halfbreeds can be found servicing a variety of roles from craftsman to mid-level politician. So far none have ascended the ranks of Khalkar, but it is only a matter of time before one ambitious enough to solve a major problem is promoted to the third highest rank.
>>
>>3572750
The issue of loyalty among Bugbears is an interesting question. Bugbears, while not occupying as many top roles, are still valued for their traits. Many make up lower-tier work, but this is less a matter of racial bias and more an issue of suitability. As the Domnakal sees it, the Bugbears are equal to Hobgoblins and utilizes them extensively as soldiers in the military. The issue comes from a simple lack of mental faculties. Bugbears are strong but simple. They're not as capable of abstract thought as other Goblinoids, so they tend to stick to lower-tier work that doesn't require it. Bugbear craftsmen are highly valued, particularly for their carpentry and artwork, areas that they ironically enough excel in. For them, the Domnakal and local administrators simply see a solution as easy as permitting more Bugbears freedom of movement, to live and settle in locations of their own choosing. Offices are available to Bugbears for use, but few have the ambition or capability to seize them.

The conquest of the other tribes and villages was slow, with equal parts diplomacy and warfare. In those times, many were crippled when a drought swept the area, leaving many to starve and die. Mroen, however, was able to endure thanks to it’s aforementioned food surpluses. With its greatest rivals in the region crippled, the elders of the city reached out to them, and demanded they join or be put to spearpoint. The results were much as one would expect. In the end, the area was firmly under the control of the City-state, and with the discovery of iron deposits, entered the iron age. Their military relies on solid corps of spearmen and heavy infantry with light elements of cavalry and skirmishing forces, and armies fighting Mroen would be looking at what looked like bronze armored hedge rows of spears and blocks of armored swordsmen. The economy relies heavily on agriculture and fishing, with no real artisan class to speak of aside from the occasional smith or carpenter.
Special Mechanic: [Tribal Allegiances]- Tribes and other unaligned villages in an area can be persuaded to give the Mroen information about the local area, be that resources, other civs or otherwise.

The soldiers encounter what seems to be tribes of crocodile people engaged with tribes of Shrimp people in a battle over the river. The Elf and human forces easily take down the weakened foes and take the land, but settlements see themselves subjugated to guerilla attacks from the sea and rivers.

The pots are made, and chieftains of richer tribes are happy to buy some.

>>3572487
The Navy of the pale human's advances. The first major port is established and icebreaker ships keep the settlers in the south safe from starvation.

The raise of taxes bring in higher income in the short term but causes an economical stagnation in the long term as for those less faithful it is more convenient to sell things on the black market with no taxes now.

The expansion goes well, but during your expansion, you encounter elven tribes that don't seem outright hostile but reserved towards you.

Your army grows and sounds of battle crustaceans echo through your nation.

To fend off the Savages you increase in population burning to trough your food supply in the process. The assault of the wild tribes does not stop but does not intensify either.

Nation&Race Name: Ivoyin Empire - Kagofon (bipedal shrimp-like creatures.)
Capital Name: Ivoy
Colour: Dark Purple
Starting Location: see Map
Starting Fluff: The clans of the Kagofon where not so long ago divided, still the Ivoy one raised above all, thanks to is might, is superior weapons and armours of iron, is words of unity and the creation of a city of stone instead of villages of wood and mud. All the other Kagofon clans accepted their superiority and rule. The current Ivoy chief has name himself emperor after all this victories and glory. The Kagofon are ready to expand even more showing their might and glory to all. A Kagofon stands tall to 2 meters to 3 when he reaches adulthood. They have a disdain for magic and they think no warrior should use it. Their kin is extremely protective and possesive of eachother, and of anything that is theirs from a simple cheap wood object to land. This is shown in their lands as they mark, with symbols and some times escrements great stones and great trees. The shells of the dead Kagofon are protected, and considered a connection with the ancestors. They have no gods, but they seek and ask questions to their ancestors. The Kagofon in battle use spears, warcleavers, maces, shields for melee and for range the favourite slingshots and the recent bows.

Special Mechanic: Natural Armour - the Shell of a Kagofon is an armour already from birth, and it becomes ever more durable and resistant each year that pass, with the Elders becoming rather difficult to kill to any great beasts that have try it.

You discover 2 major tribes. One is the Eightlegs, which is a tribe of Drow residing in caves worshipping spiders. They seem to be extremely xenophobic, but accept your people due to being the same race. The second tribe is a tribe of Steppe Elves they just wander around raiding smaller tribes. They are not hostile towards you but might attack if they smell weakness.

A small minority of Elves joins you and as you gain their trust they reveal to you their hidden City which agrees to join your nation willingly as long as you agree to tolerate the magicians within the walls of the city.

Vefu is established.

>>3573061
The locals have blue within blue eyes and seem to be addicted to a local mineral from which if kept away long they encounter bleeding from all bodily orphaces and finally death but the mineral lets them communicate telepathically and receive visions of the future.
If they can be outsmarted and their supply of the mineral cut off they are weaker than most sapient races.

The enemy has bows so you make powerful bows. You realize though that the material can't be too strong or you won't be able to shoot it.

As for diplomacy some of the tribes are willing to cooperate while others out for blood especially as they don't think you have anything you can offer them for the land which was their's but you claim as yours.

Nation&Race Name: Arakzi - Goblinoids
Capital Name: Karpol
Colour: Red
Starting Location: See Map
Starting Fluff: The Hobgoblins of Arakzi founded their state in the wake of several conflicts with the Bugbear and Goblins of the forests and Taiga. Eventually conquering them through superior arms and tactics, the Hobgoblins sit at the top of the social strata of Arakzi with Goblins at the bottom of the totem pole. Their society, born out of conflict, is regimented, militaristic, and strictly caste-based dependent upon race for positioning. Hobgoblins may be found in the leadership of any job type, but goblins and bugbears exist primarily to serve - as labor in the case of Goblins or as soldiers in the case of Bugbears. Binding the society together is a rigid honor code that places personal honor and service above every other virtue. Dishonor is punished with social stigmatization and redeemable only through deed or suicide. Lies, trickery, and deceit are all accepted and laudable in the service of another greater authority. Of those authorities, none are greater than the Domnakal, supreme ruler of all Goblinoids.
Special Mechanic: Military Machine - The nation is adept at gearing up for and performing in extended wars of conquest.

1. Urbanization
As the population grows so too do some of the well situated towns with access to resources. Further downriver Arak is constructed. Arak is a city built to administer over the fertile river farmland in which the majority of rice is grown. It is almost exclusively populated by Goblin farmers, while the city proper is administered by a combination of Hobgoblin and Goblin administrators ruling with authority from the Domnakal's offices. Bugbears are a small population, and mostly make up the garrison and petty artisan class.

2. Develop Writing and Mathematics
The previous economic expansion came from natural pressures to make use of land and resources and provide for Karpol. Now, with three cities and dozens of towns and countless farming villages the importance moves from simple goods production to organized use of local produce. The basis of the economy is the grain and rice trade, called the Koku System. Koku is an entire economy around agriculture, as food is the power of the nation, and its usage, transport, organization, and storage are of paramount importance to the developing cities and towns. Thus, a writing and mathematical system is created to keep track of grain shipments, amounts, and locations. In the process, this koku system could be used for a number of other goods being traded like raw metal, stone, lumber, and finished tools.

Capital Name: Yula
Colour: Purple
Starting Location: See Map
Starting Fluff: Lyrians stopped wandering the taigas in the south, and unified when their Goddess appeared before them and showed them the way to the Lake of Mirrors. A few of the elder members of the early Lyrian tribes gathered around and formed a council, claiming that they would see the will of the Goddess done in this new sacred land, as long as Lyrian people would remain faithful and united. Lyrians have a very strict faith, praying for repentance for even the most inane of sins. They are very culturally rich, defensive in nature and are open to trading with other civilizations as long as they respect their Goddess, borders and their traditions.
Special Mechanic: Pardoners - The secret service and special force under the Exarch Council's ruling, they keep order inside the civilization's borders exceptionally and can culturally influence other nations in secret, so that Lyrian faith can prevail and other civs are less prone to attack the Theocracy.

1. Agriculture
Over time some developments in agriculture ease the life of farmers and i mprove outputs. Of them, few are more important than the 3-field farming system. This allows sections of every farmer's field to restore itself every year, constantly providing a fertile plot for the following year to improve yields and reduce periods of famine.

2. Expand East
Unaligned tribes have taken up residence in the east, sheltering in the forests and near the rivers of the area. Following a wave of soldiers is another wave of settlers, mostly goblins but with a sizable crop of Bugbears to make the area properly under Arakzi control.

Emissaries are sent out under the cover of night to talk with the cooperative tribes, we promise them the women and children of the conquered blood villages, any that they do not want we will either kill or enslave as per the preference of the conquering chief along with some of the powerful iron of our crashed vessel in return for their loyalty to the current leader of the Shtihnyr (though many emissaries ask them to pledge allegiance to himself) along with the possibility of taming the wilderness and establishing a civilization, as we believe that we are probably not going to be the only ones who use technologies such as what we have, potentially mighty empires which have the ability to smite away all tribes of Blue Eyed Men it simply steal all of the mineral by force.

They are told that the bloody tribes can be a thing of the past if only they cooperate.

Action 1:
The horde of young ones are released, and directed for the purpose of wiping out the weaker bloody tribes and procuring their potential mineral supplies. (Roll is for whether or not I find some caches, a source of the mineral or simply none at all, OP you may decide what I find, the second roll is for the success rate, though you may state otherwise as you see fit)

Raided villages are only plundered if they do not have precious sources of the mineral available. Villages are only culled as much as required.

A minor Civil war in the underground breaks out. The procedure is a success and the previously honest craftsmen are terrified. (16 < 30). Instead of glory, the Pardoners are feared now, the church becomes an institution to be feared not loved among them.

You establish some marble mines, but considering you executed half of your craftsmen it will take a long time before anyone can properly work it.

>>3573342
The expansion goes well and agricultural output increases. Some of the tribes agree to share information with you and become your servants especially after the Young ones manage to capture one of the major mines of the Drug. As long as you provide them with a steady supply of the Drug those tribes will be loyal to you. The hostile tribes escape further and won't be attacking you henceforth.

As you learn about the culture and magic you find out it mostly revolves around the drug. From marriage to burials all swirls around the drug. Even newborns first get a taste f the drug later the mother's milk. As one of your mages tries to test it out you see him collapse and his eyes turn blue es an epileptic shock shakes his body.

He screams "A gift! A gift! The stone has for us a gift! Merchandise... rare... Merchendise foreign.. unguarded... go here! Go here!" and he scribbles a map to the ground which describes the shortest way for you to reach the Grand House.

The mages are content with this deal, as long as they can keep the walls of magic wood going they can stay in the City. The Wold Elf oracle says they are willing to offer help at all times, but warn to not go to the mountains as it is land which belongs to someone already and the Elves seem visibly fearful of the place.

The southern expansion goes well trough settlements at the edge of the mountains experience stealing of cattle, kidnappings arsonist attacks and similar, but don't notice anyone who could have done it.

The farms are fine.

Trough diplomacy you learn of a few of the Drug mines, but due to fear of losing their supply no tribe joins you, but once the Young ones get going and slaughter their way through the natives' things change. You take control of one of the mines and tribes surrounding your immediate location agree to stay friendly and loyal to you as long as you supply them with the Drug. The hostile tribes are forced out and unless you try to expand won't bother you.

From the captives, you learn that the whole culture revolves around the Drug to the point that a new-born child gets it's first taste of the Drug before it's mother's milk.

As you examine your magic you learn that the drug is the magic so one of your people tries some of it an collapses on the ground in epileptic shock:

"A GIFT! A GIFT! The drug sends us a gift! Merchandise... rare... expensive... merchandise unguarded. A GIFT!" As his body is shaking he scribbles a map on the ground which when followed will lead you directly to the ruins of the grand house.

1. Military Developments
The expansion of the state has led to a need to expand the military to compensate. With larger borders there are more threats, more areas to patrol, and more tribes to subjugate. The military developments primarily focus around the equipment and training of heavy infantry - the mainstay of the Arakzi army. Heavy infantry equipment changes with the industrial output of a larger goblin working class. Armor that was once too time consuming to produce in large numbers can be made by hordes of goblins. Mail armor becomes affordable for the average soldier, and the production of iron spears, smallswords, and javelins, leads to better armed heavy infantry. Better, the mandate for infantry arms adds industrial might to the Arakzi cities, forcing urban goblins into smithwork to create iron links and work the forges. Lumber mills chop down trees to provide wood for spears and javelins and to feed the flames of industry.

2. River Trade
The two major rivers: the Tivr and the Gorrosh, are the arteries of the nation. Raw goods, produce, and people flow up and down their banks day in and day out before terminating at Karpol. Additional towns and ferries are constructed, and the river becomes a major source of wealth in transportation. To support the steadily growing river trade specially made river barges are constructed in local ports around Karpol and exported out to the other cities.

A few of the elder members of the early Lyrian tribes gathered around and formed a council, claiming that they would see the will of the Goddess done in this new sacred land, as long as Lyrian people would remain faithful and united. Lyrians have a very strict faith, praying for repentance for even the most inane of sins. They are very culturally rich, defensive in nature and are open to trading with other civilizations as long as they respect their Goddess, borders and their traditions.
Special Mechanic: Pardoners - The secret service and special force under the Exarch Council's ruling, they keep order inside the civilization's borders exceptionally and can culturally influence other nations in secret, so that Lyrian faith can prevail and other civs are less prone to attack the Theocracy.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. At the chant of "through blood and shadow may we find redemption", the Pardoners leave the workers scarred so that they will remember not to sin in the coming years. The Exarch Council, now pleased and seeing they need new workers, spread the word that the Goddess demands the marble to be extracted from the crust of the earth. Hopefully, taking into account how much Lyrians are devoted to their faith, this will increase a popularity in labour jobs that involve mining, benefiting the economy in the long term.

2. In the coming years, citizens construct a Great Library in Yula. It will serve as a holy archive for every mandate the Goddess exerts through the Exarch Council, and will gather knowledge so that the richer parts of the populace can start to become educated. The Exarchs are confident that an educated populace will not threaten the status quo, seeing as the Pardoners have been terrifyingly effective at doing the latter. Cultural growth will be prioritized when the Library finishes its construction. Every citizen, man and woman, shall know of the greatness of our Goddess through speech and scripture!

(Action 1)
Due to the fact that the race is no longer under the threat of extermination the Shtihnyr that witness the event erupt into an all out brawl, many died but in the end the hallucinator died and a lowly Shtihnyr managed to escape to find the manor, taking the map with him. Somehow still intact despite the attempts to wrestle it from him by his competitors.

He makes sure to leave behind a copy of the map in a crevasse which was not searched within until days after he escaped to the ruins.

He took crude chain and scrap armor with him alongside a well crafted sling (alongside many heavy metal stone substitutes as ammunition) in company with two concealed knives and one of the mass produced swords that were made for the young hordes.

He eventually reaches the ruins with the help of a blue man guide, who he paid with a third knife which he took with him.

(Does he find danger or the loot OP?)

Action 2:
The Shtihnyr who gave up on finding the map head out to scout out some possible mega fauna necrong candidates in the local area. (Including the nearby friendly villages) Or to simply find some animals which would make good trading mounts.

The power of the army grows, and the cities gain economical power, but all this seems like a bubble that will eventually burst. The bubble of arming for a war that won't come.

The port is constructed and trade goes well until the local wildlife learns of the people on the boats. The floating crocodiles of the Gorrosh in particular learn to hunt the people on the passing boats.

>>3574645
We do not know ourselves... whenever we try to see visions of them all we see is darkness endless deep black darkness.

The Cities agree happily all but the scheming nobles who tried to gain power for themselves through their independence. Pro City-Statist factions still exist but generally, the republic is accepted.

You learn of ancient elven ruins as well as 2 ancient elven mines. Still, before you go you get once again warned: "the land already belongs to another."

A lot of zealots join the workforce to mine marble, still, they are zealots, not craftsmen so while huge amounts of marble are extracted the quality is poor.

The Great Library is constructed, the first of it's kind. Such a marvelous structure attracts the attention of foreign surrounding tribes who wish to learn of your Goddess.

>>3575429
(you never were desu)

The Shtihnyr used to travel of space only now realizes how truly huge planets are. The Blue Eyed local leads him all the way to the northern shore where they have to rent a boat. At first no captain wishes t agree as nobody ever traveled as far as the map had indicated. Months and then years pass you until you reach a strait which just as the map described get more and more narrow. Monkey-people are observing you from the shores until you reach a destroyed modern looking building.

Slowly you enter to see... slaughter. Humans in strange overly ornate modern garments covered in blood their corpses clearly started rotting. But what interests you is what is in their hands... my God it's guns... 121 of them. It's a weird foreign design with some powerful magic blocking the possibility of taking them apart or inspecting them... but that does not go for the bullets.
As such you obtained 121 guns without the possibility of making more, but with the possibility of making bullets as well as other 1920's style artifacts like toasters, a generator etc. Though anything technologically sophisticated has magic seals on it making it impossible to take it appart.

The marble, although it is rougher than usual, still serves its intended purpouse. It could be better, but more important matters are on the horizon. The Exarch Council vehemently discusses the founding of another major city. Population has grown, and with all this marble and wood, it's only fitting to have a project in which to spend it on.

1. Found a City. It shall be in the southern delta, where the two rivers converge into the sea at the limit of our borders. Its name will be Arnah. Having a portuary city will only help the Theocracy's interests in the long run, even if the cold weather slows its settling process down.

2. With the near tribes coming into our borders, curious about the word of our Goddess, the Exarchs welcome them with open arms. Every tribesman that wishes to convert is happily let into the Theocracy as a citizen. They can choose to work in manual labour jobs, join the military force as auxiliaries or even be small owners. As long as they are devout, there is no frontier between Lyrians and them. This should also increase the quality of the production of our marble mines, seeing as this will mean a raise in the overall active population inside our realm.

(A threat of extermination does not need to be real, only perceived, and they were small in number so they were weary)

Action 1:
This prize of so many great weapons is seen by the Shtihnyr as something of immense value due to how hard it was to find. And due to the places and people’s he met upon the way he finds it ardent that he founds his own trade hub, so that he may be revered by his descendants as somebody to look upon with reverence.

He called the trading colony “Vydai Dam”, he founds it in the ruins of the house, as he cannot yet hope to move his hoard of guns very far. And so he begins to procreate young ones for him to employ.

Action 2; since there were found to be no viable animals in the forest the beastie prospectors look in one of the four directions for new prospects. (Rolling for the direction they look in)

Nation&Race Name: Arakzi - Goblinoids
Capital Name: Karpol
Colour: Red

1. Scribes and Literature
The development of an urban bureaucracy has lead to a proliferation of literacy among the privileged and mercantile classes. Reading, writing, and mathematics are soon considered essential qualities, and many administrative posts are barred from those who cannot do arithmetic and write. The result is that after a decade of the spread of writing there is a growth of professional scribes. A secondary business, that of clerks, opens up to handle financial accounts, correspondence, and assist in managing the bureaucracy of the state. Old poems and songs are written down onto clay tablets to last an eternity. The use of clay soon faded, however, as paper becomes more prevalent in circles, although it is rare for paperies to be anywhere outside of Arak where it is developed. Paper becomes a major export for the city alongside its rice shipments.

2. Pacify the Countryside
The territory Arakzi holds is large, but unruly. A quarter of the standing army is transformed into a mobile garrison, stationed in fortresses across the country. Their command is divided up into 3 Commanderies, one for each major city, and it is from those location that police and pacification operations are run. Wildlife hostile to Arakzi or that proves difficult for local farmers can be dealt with by these soldiers, and roaming tribes or bandits that attempt to exploit the agricultural sectors can be handled by military force.

The City is founded and makes governing the land easier, but puts a bigger strain on the boats having to transport food from the North.

The Marble quality problem is solved. The tribes are interested in the faith and migrate into the country in droves, but many of the migrants are rather uncivilized causing a rise in crime. Not out of malice, but lack of sophistication.

Fort Treni reigns supreme being the first Mroen step into gaining control over the mountains but as retaliation raids from the Mountain folk increase.

The mines are inhabited and the Prospectors which manage to get back talk about short sturdy men with big axes and beards. You finally learn who your enemy is THE DWARVES!

You thought your shells can protect you... you thought you could just slaughter the men of the hills... you thought. They rush your forces and with warhammers and war axes out of an unusually advanced metal they shatter your armor and your soft guts spill out of your Chitin shells... many of your men manage to retreat with the help of the Wood Elf auxiliaries... at least those who choose to escape. Those men bring back news of who the enemy in the shadows is... IT'S DWARVES

A happy day is announced as the Zodiac signs are decided uppon.

The Englightenment spreads to the Goblin tribes of the north and joint tribes in the south. And as such culture advances. But with your learned men traveling you also learn of a barbaric nation to the east. Ones who claim to have slaughtered the Goblin and Bugbear Gods and enslaved them, they also possess writing and endless armies.

The Expansion goes well, but your Nation seems to be experiencing supply problems and can't control the new south-eastern region at all. It will take time to tame this wild frontier.

Nation&Race Name: Arakzi - Goblinoids
Capital Name: Karpol
Colour: Red

1. Caste Reform
The urbanization of the Goblinoids has led to some shifts in the caste meta of the country. Goblins, once restricted to the bottom of the totem pole, find opportunities using their wit and intelligence in the cities, while those in the countryside continue to plug away growing crops for their betters in the cities. The Hobgoblin elite, seeing both the potential usefulness of a 3rd column of Goblins and the benefits of Goblin participation in the workings of the bureaucracy, begin a slow process of elevating some Goblins up in status. The new Goblin elite are still the inferiors of the Hobgoblins, but that is an inferiority that comes from social conditioning and not from any legal or de jure treatment afforded to these Goblin elites. In turn, it is expected that these Goblins do their part in upholding the traditional power structure that sees them above all other Goblins and to serve as an example of what loyal service can bring. Of course, after this initial wave of Goblin ennoblement there will be rarely any to follow.

2. Expand East
The remaining coastline of the bay will be brought under Arakzi control, and populated with either the subjugated tribes or with settlers given land grants to their patrons.

A momentary raise in crime will not hinder Lyrian progress. Let the migrants become educated over time, and for that we have the Great Library to teach them the workings of our religion and culture.

1. With the marble quality problem solved, start constructing temples and encourage the art of sculpture. We shall put our prayers to the Goddess in proper monuments to worship, and they shall be the highlight of both our religion and architecture!.

2. Now that Arnah is founded, let it develop over time. The Exarchs demand Yula to be the most glorious city of the Theocracy, and this will be done by making it the focus of our holy capabilities. With all the temples being constructed, the greatest of all must be in Yula, and it shall be named the Temple of Dawn & Dusk. Lyrians will make it so that the temple functions both as a regular place of worship and as an academy for the talented in the arcane. Holy magic studies are now open to the educated public who wish to learn more than what the Great Library has to offer! The Exarchs will be pleased to see that Lyrians have indeed, very special and innate magical capabilities. Let Arnah be the economical powerhouse that it is destined to be for now; the Exarchs watch patiently how it evolves.

Greetings Zhei Hao, I am Trung Byon, the Lon Chuya of Vaydai Dam. You may refer to me as Trung.

I have spent the last decade or so building a life for myself in a set of ruins to the north. I have fostered dozens of children, many of whom have tried to usurp me.

I have on my person several examples of some very powerful weapons, weapons which can kill in an instant and take little skill to use. These weapons are impossible to reproduce, and thus would make the perfect weapons for a royal guard.

Though I will only sell you to them at a very reasonable price, as supplies are of course limited.

I would like to know your position on several topics of which would serve to help us come to a mutual understanding, mostly so I do not end up accidentally offending your great kingdom with foreign beliefs which may prove ill conceived and based in ignorance on my part.

I would like to know your great nation’s position on the concept of slavery mostly, as the old ones from my homeland often talked about how it is better to put your trust in your slaves than in your fellow Shtihnyr, as slaves have more invested interest in keeping you okay if you treat them well than those who have their own vested interests in your death.

I would also like to know about the faith your nation follows, as the way you dress, act and build seems reminiscent of the religious that I have heard of. I am thinking perhaps your faith holds some sort of tangible benefits to following it, such as keeping more respect for authority in society or perhaps more pref- I mean perhaps more interestingly some sort of easily measurable benefit, like increased luck or market, erm, discounts.

I would also like to know of some of the hardier goods that may prove unique to your realm, goods which hold much value for their weight and size.

Starting Fluff: Llychlyn was until somewhat recently, a bunch of tribes made up of clans that relied heavily on the bow and usually weren't too far away from the ocean. These clans and tribes where very small, and occasionally they fought each other and made alliances, but mostly kept to themselves, yet all these clans worshiped Fanw and were 'Children of Fanw'. However this was not to last. The story goes that the clans were united by a young hunter who had gathered twelve particularly skilled followers who helped them along the way, and that Fanw herself helped this young hunter by gifting them the bow known as Ergydcaled to them. They are long dead, and the bow in question was returned to Fanw by one of those twelve followers, and if that is simply a romanticized story or actual history is anyone's guess, but the ruling clan of Cadigan naturally claims to be of her lineage.
Special Mechanic: Fanw's Children: The Children of Fanw call themselves such for a reason. Fanw herself is said to wander the worlds wilds and hunting the animals in it for food, and a few, usually much to their clan's dismay, follow in her footsteps, exploring the world, sometimes on land, sometimes on sea. Often times, this is just a few people, however, those of Clan Llewelyn tend to organize expeditions to search distant lands, reaching them by foot or oar.

It was a quiet day, the coronation of Queen Eheubryd Cadigan had gone on a while ago now, and she was getting use to her new position, yet despite the fact things were currently quite peaceful and calm, she certainly wasn't. Despite commonly looking calm, on the inside, she was a nervous wreck. Most of the time it took a while for her to come to a decision, most say it is because she was thoughtful and took everything into account, and while this was to an extent true, the thing that made her take a long time with her decisions was simply because it took that long for her to push past her doubts. Still, things had been slowly getting easier for her as she got use to her new position.

>Action One
The city of Allfshys would have plenty of work done to it, the most noticeable would be new, fairly long and large houses being constructed. They were large enough that they'd be able to house most minor clans, and they were quite comfortable as well. Other than this, new roads were constructed and the temple to Fanw would receive a minor expansion in the form of a tower. There also would be a few more buildings for those to work in as well, though it was mostly just a minor modernization of the old town than anything else.

>Action Two
While one might not realize it, the Children of Fanw, and by extension Llychlyn, are actually fairly fond of all wilds, not just the woods of the land but also the waves of the sea. Of course, they don't swim in it, and instead travel it using ships, and some like the land more than the sea, but the reverse is true as well and ships are something the Children of Fanw can make. New ships would be made for Clan Llewelyn and for fishing. Of course, the shipbuilders would, on the request of Clan Llewelyn, try a few new techniques to see if better boats and ships could be made. The hope was to make them both more seaworthy and faster, trying to improve upon the traditional oar and sail method that the current ships Llychyln had, as if they were faster and more seaworthy, they could stay out for longer, at least that was the idea anyway.

Zhei Hao was taken by Trung's words. He comes a society oppressive and starchedwith betrayal. The Enlightenment would do them good, but from what was told to him, it seems Trung's people value material things than spiritual.
"About these weapons you speak of, they sound quite powerful and rumors of barbarians to the East concern us. Maybe we should trade for them. Monos are not ones for this slavery. It sounds...mingxua, undesirable, to us. But we are not ones to forcefully change others. Please treat your slaves well with compassion and dignity. Our religion is about bettering oneself with personal will and guidance from above. *Zhei Hao chuckleed* I don't think your people would value the Teachings though it seems people born in certain years are bless with good fortune especially in the year of the Frog, Sheep, and Squirrel. But as you can see in the sky, corrupt stars are fighting the others and we are trying to understand and weather this strange event. In time, we will return to Enlightenment."
>>3578637
Most troubling indeed. Three corrupt stars have appear in the sky battling the others. A Clestrial war that will last until the stars themselves flicker out.

>1
The corrupt stars remind the Monos no one is above corruption. A pure being of anything is impossible. In that realization, the Grand Master meditated on what new Enlightenment decree will be needed to guide the people. After much time has passed, he spoke, "Cu and Su will always be in turmoil. One must now channel the energy they radiate and convert it into Enlightenment ." (Basically, add new laws to the Enlightenment to better understand this strange phenomenon.)

The holy men in the small cultic temples that dot the 3 cities of the Republic are uneasy. With no uniform religion yet created among the Mroen people, the priests are usually conflicting in their prophecies and divinations, but this day is different. Stars in the night sky grow cold and dark, a very poor omen from the myriad of gods worshiped. The strange uniformity of the omens shakes many of the populace, from the lowliest of plebeian farmer to the wealthiest patrician senator. For the gods to show such a blatant message is almost unheard of, and now the Republic feels the need to prepare for the years to come. Expansion is important, but what good is land that cannot be taken care of? Soldiers are good, but if left in a band, they become disorganized. Trade is good, but what backing is there to the barters made? Diplomacy is good, but are there even any other civilized peoples out there to speak to? The reptiles to our north have been idle in their actions for decades now, with no sign of anything yet. Maybe we are a fluke, not meant to rise like we have. Maybe we were meant to rule the whole world uncontested but by small tribes, or maybe we haven't met anyone else yet. This wave of questions brings about many philosophers who debate the merits of life and further question the things around them.

On the frontier, soldiers patrol the borders between the Republic, and the wilds. Some liaise with the tribes that have yet to be integrated into the Republic, while others make camps in the plains. They sharpen iron blades and spear points with whetstone. Smiths pound away at forges, crafting new armors for recruits gathered from the local area, young men looking to prove their worth on the field of battle, though it's more likely they'll end up in some garrison post. The wealthier recruits are able to trade more valuable things to the smiths for chain mail armor, a step above the bronze squares that are strapped to the chests of the others, and the poorer recruits are given even lighter equipment, and trained as skirmishers.

You are mistaken in that we do not currently own slaves as it is not corduroys to own slaves of our own race in our society. I will continue my lack of slave ownership until my death as you would be pleased by me doing so.

As for the weapons they are of immense value to me so I must ask of something of roughly equivalent value. I do indeed want to have some of your finer animal pelts, but along with that I would like 12 of your finest guards to accompany me in Vydai Dam, I will train them in the art of using these weapons for one year and then send 6 back who will them be replaced by 6 fresh guards, I want this exchange to happen yearly until my death. For now I will give you 50 of these weapons which I will use to briefly train your higher commanders for a few days so that no unintended accidents occur in your nation’s usage of them. Each group of 6 I send back will be equipped with their own personal weapons for use in the guarding of your palaces and temples under you. They will be true experts in the art and will help to spread the art of using these weapons among your guards.

I have noticed in my journey here the disruption in the stars, which is why it took me so long to get here. If there is anything I can do to help with realigning the stars I am ready to take action in.

He thinks on the offer that has been laid before him. Guards trained by Trung could be a great boon to the Monos, but to sacrifice six every year? The price seems fair for the exchange. The Grand Masters sighs. "Very well, Trung. We will agree to the terms if you make an oath this deal will only last until your death. We do not wish to send so many Monos away from their homeland. Of course, our animal pelts we will trade as well. About the stars, any help to gently realign them will be good, but we do not want to the world to be more unbalance."

In the tallest peaks of the Lamhaad Mountains lies the city-aerie of Garudasana. Here, the last vestiges of a once proud race cling to existence. The great eagles of the west once claimed a range stretching across the seas, to continents whose names still lay unuttered by the lips of man. They once feared no beast or race, they were the apex predator, the skies were their kingdom and their refuge. Such was the power once held by the Garuda, but no longer. No longer. In the fourth Tyrn of the ruler Asam came the prideful eagles’ doom. The sky split and a smooth stone fell from above, and the stones name was Greed. Those who went near it returned changed. They stopped caring for their mates, for their king, for the eagles around them. Their only allegiances were to envy and spite. The corrupted eagles fell upon themselves, butchering and stealing till the rivers ran with red with their blood. The Garudan nation collapsed violently and suddenly, leaving only massive carcasses behind. The only place left untouched by the corruption was Garudasana, a holy site which very few eagles knew about before the collapse. Here is where the royals fled when their original capital fell to ruin. Here, their nests are hidden by curtains of fog rising from the thermal springs of the dying hotspot that first built this range aeons ago, their fledglings grow up insulated from the chaos that surrounds them, and they are able to keep the last flame of Garudan civilization alight.
Now, however, things are changing. The Earth rumbles with new life. The stars in the sky seems to dance quicker than they did before. Something has happened, beyond the Lamhaad. The Garudakal look outwards with renewed vigilance. Perhaps it is time for them to take flight once more, and resume their position as kings of the mountain.

Special traits:

Predatory Visage: Garudakal were once the planet’s apex predator. Even now, after their name has fled living memory, their shape still strikes a primal chord deep within the souls of those whose ancestors they preyed on. Some experience this as fear, others feel it as awe or respect.

Eagle Eye: Garudakal have exceptional vision, perception, and visual memory. The tradeoff, however, is poor senses of smell and taste.

Magical Sensitivity: Garudakal are extremely sensitive to magic, magical effects, and magical creatures. This sensitivity goes both ways, however, as spells targeted at Garudakal will have a significantly stronger effect on them as well.

Turn 1: Before looking outwards, the eagles must first look in. Under the watchful eye of the Garudakal, the fledglings have been safe and secure. However, that may change as the eagles travel further and have less time to devote at Garudasana. This retreat must be properly fortified in order to ensure that the future of the Eagles are secure. The steam veils that cloak the ashram are thickened by redirecting water deeper underground, nests are moved into opened cavities underground, routes through which a little fledgling might escape and find itself at the mercy of the Lamhaad downdrafts are carefully searched out and sealed. In the innermost ring of the fortification, a dome of solid stone is constructed. Within lay the incubating eggs that will form the next generation of Garuda. An egg may lay in rest for centuries before it finally chooses to hatch, waiting until the occupant within feels the time is right. The eggs themselves are exceptionally difficult, as hard and smooth as a river stone. Still, given their rarity and value, it is judged that an additional layer of protection would be best.
>Fortify Garudasana

Turn 2: While Garudasana serves as an aerie at present, before the fall it served a far more spiritual purpose. According to the most sacred of myths, this was the home of Garuda himself, the first Eagle, where he took his first flight into the heavens to light the stars and the moon. The temple to him here is engraved deep into the rock face using techniques now lost to time. Given the occasion, it seems appropriate to seek his blessing before the journey. The Garudkal adorn Garuda’s temple, placing mountain flowers, springfish, and fresh water before him. Pasad himself spends the night prostrate at the First Eagles feet, hoping for an insight as to what avenues to pursue first.

It had been a fairly long time now since Eheubryd became queen, and despite how nervous she was at the start, she had gotten use to ruling, it had been some years now after all. Still, she hadn't gotten over her worry's and nervousness entirely, and likely never would, but it wasn't as bad as it once was and she was a bit more confident in her own abilities because of it. Still, the city of Allfshys was doing quite well, though, it was quite likely and assured that there would need to be more land taken for the city to grow, and for the people of Llychlyn to have more land to hunt in...and farm in, though, farming isn't exactly for anything other than extra food to make dishes have a bit of extra flavor or for emergency's should game run low and needs time to recover.

>Action One.
For both more food and more space, some of the lesser clans are encuraged to go out into the wilderness and make their home in it, expanding the lands of Llychlyn and also increasing the lands that the people of Llychlyn could hunt. After all, if everyone remained in the area's nearby Allfshys, they'd eventually over hunt the local area and be forced to go off far away from home. It also meant that there was a chance that the people there could find some resources that could make the nation able to make tools easier, though this was a bit of an afterthought and a nice potential bonus. Most of the people would go to the north east, though some would simply go straight east, and even fewer south east. The forests were a traditional home for the Children of Fanw after all, and the sea was a distance up north anyway, so its understandable why most would head up there.

>Action Two.
A set of basic defenses are put around Allfshys. They weren't really designed to deal with a proper army, really they were mostly there just to keep animals they'd rather not get in the city that couldn't fly out rather than actually fending off any real determined siege force. After all, who would be able to do such a thing? Its not like there was anything out there that could attack the Children of Fanw, and by extension Llychlyn, in such a way...Right? Regardless, some extra work would also be put into the home for Clan Cadigan, making it a bit bigger and also a bit more fitting in terms of looks for the ruling clan...Besides, Clan Howell managed to get their own longhouse expanded and made nicer along with the temple they practically ran. Besides, putting a bit of work into the house wasn't exactly going to detract too much from the work of keeping animals out, making a simple palisade isn't exactly that difficult or time consuming after all.

>Tyrn Two of Pasad, Veil-Piercer
Action 1: As the scout eagles ruffle their feathers and get ready for the long flight out of the mountains, they perform a ritual meditation, sinking deep within themselves to find and hone their dormant navigation skills. Garudakal have innate homing instincts similar to their less prodigious cousins, but many of the scouts had not made use of them since childhood, having spent their entire adult lives within sight of the fog veil. Now, as the time approaches for them to journey out once more, the scouts must realign themselves with the natural world. During the trance state, the eagles’ bodies remain still, but within their mind, great changes begin to occur. Their biological compasses sync with the natural magnetic fields that surround them, creating a natural pointer that will forever point directly back to Garudasana. The new star arrangements imprint themselves onto the bird’s minds, their nightly dance recorded in neural circuits, to be compared against in order to ascertain the precise location of the birds wherever they may be. As the first rays of the sun touch their brows, the light triggers further changes, creating a knowledge of latitude, time, and season. The scouts arise from their trance, refreshed and ready for the trip to come. They know precisely where they are and how they can return. Now, the only question is where to go.
>Navigation

Action Two: The messages of foreboding from the First Eagle are disturbing, but Pasad knows now that the eagles must return to their old kingdoms once more. Still, additional precautions must be taken in order to ensure the survival of his race. A secret contingent of elders are dispatched to the mountains to the north of Garudasana, to a cave hidden by miles of dangerous canyon and freezing winds. Here, as there, the hotspot far beneath sends up tendrils of heat to create a permanent source of warmth, perfect for an incubator. Several dozen eggs are secreted away here. If Garudasana is ever to fall, they will be the last remnants of the Garudakal.

2. With the influx of new recruits, the Republic starts to see the downsides of their barter economy, with some recruits not able to obtain equipment as the smith already have a surplus of the materials they seek to trade. Thus, a monetary system is introduced, with minted coinage. Within a year, most recruits are able to afford arms and armor.

The Drow in exchange for their sacrifice are granted 3 gifts.
1. The Lion Berserker Armor - a pure black ser of armor representing a male lion. It makes it's wearer go into a battle frenzy slaughtering its way and evoking impossible physical produce and masking injury making the wearer go into a berserker rage which often kills him uppon which the armor starts consuming the wearer's flesh to keep fighting like a frenzied Golem. The wearer of the armor can inspire such berserker rage in up to 1000 willing allies.

2. The Dress of Arachne - lets the wearer summon 8 spiderlike appendages anywhere trough a type of portal and cast spells with it as if with her own hands. Just impaling and the enemy is of course also possible. The dress in general drastically improves reflexes and magic power.

Dragons Blood - only one of the Armies returned a great Drow warrior one close to a god of war. She has been chosen as the Champion of the Dragon carrying a demigod in her womb. She will give birth to a powerful warrior and an even more powerful lineage.

Some curious explorers head into the ruins to take a look about. They take a smarter ogre, just in case.

2. Begin iron production
In the western mountains iron production begins with the development of mines and smelters at Nurzar. The mining operation benefits from the proximity of the river that allows it to ship iron downriver to the waiting fires in Nurzar, then ship finished iron downriver to the forges and smithies at various points before ending with the major industrial area in Karpol.

The scout eagles fly west, floating downslope with the winds for once, relishing the feeling of warmer climes and thicker air. Some of the younger scouts feel a pang of homesickness as the steam plume marking home disappears into the distance. They have never been out of sight of the plume, having been born decades after the Collapse. The new lands they rediscover, however, quickly wipe out any sense of regret. The plains roll placidly beneath them, giving way to sand slopes and finally the shallow sea between the continents. Thee eagles sweep low over the waves, their wingtips sending droplets of seafoam flying. The sun reflected off the waves creates powerful thermals, allowing them a chance to simply float, swaddled in warm air. As the sun passes its zenith and begins to move west, the ocean recedes behind them and new peaks emerge from the horizon line. The ruins of a Pre-Collapse aerie are sighted amidst the mountaintops, and the eagles overnight there before taking flight once more. They wing high above the ground, sighting flashes of new growth through the clouds below them. The earth seems to be changing with new vigor, the broad lands of the plains now interrupted by mud huts and stone-brick hills. The younger eagles wish to investigate, chittering eagerly at the change to catch exotic prey. Before they leave, however, they are chided by the oldest birds, and, muttering unhappily, return to the flock. And so the eagles pass high over the Mroen, leaving no trace beyond a few agitated livestock.
Finally, their destination came into sight. Phangriph, at the mouth of a broad river. It was a city ruled by water, and after a long and arduous journey, the eagles were grateful for its cool waterfalls and gardens. One such fall conceals a beautifully crafted sanctuary, sunlight streaming in through a set of clerestories high above. The birds roost here, and soon the inhabitants of the city join them. It is clear that the Krox, at least, have not forgotten the eagles, bringing offerings of fish and fruits up to the city’s well kept aerie.

The Republic is abuzz with activity. With the introduction of coinage, trade boomed. Instead of sacks of grain carried to market by plebeians, they brought copper coins, which were given to traders in return for goods. The traders would further pay for things, and so on. The military also experienced a boom as well, as the recruit soldiers could easier afford better weapons and armor, with chain mail becoming more accessible, if still uncommon. Iron tools too were more common as mines brought in surpluses. Campaigns against mountain tribes were going well, with recruits quickly becoming skilled in the ways of warfare as they cut down the poorly organized warriors sent by the tribes.

To the north however, much suspicion and distrust lingered. These eagle men had come out of seemingly nowhere and had taken complete control of the reptile men seemingly overnight. As a result, the roads near the border would be constantly patrolled by soldiers, who kept wary eyes to the sky. Just in case...

Still, the controlled domestication of the Krox done by his ancestors had lapsed for centuries now, and the crocodilians had slowly begun reverting to their natural state. The Krox must be crafted once more into the perfect servants and caretakers. Pasad calls for the Krox to begin a festival of fertility in order to create a new generation of Kroxigans.
>Fertility Festival

Action 2: There are several abandoned aeries in the mountains south of Krokland. Pasad rules that they ought to be settled by some of the younger eagles, in a bid to further increase and diversify the eagle population. The wide open space to the west should prove fertile enough hunting ground for the eagles to prosper.

The Goddess embraces the Butterfly, and listens to its sorrows. It has lost a battle in the skies of the world, and wishes for protection under servitude. She tells the creature: "All beings are connected to me, for I am crystalline water. If you wish to become an affluent of my being, then you shall do so without worry or fear." The Butterfly becomes the heavenly symbol of hope, and herald of good news. A day-long festival in spring is set to honor the Goddess' generosity and piousness in this act.

1. With the military academy up and going, The Exarchs rule to raise the Theocracy's defenses. The benevolent stars have lost, and dark ones now plague the skies above. Lyrians shall be prepared for the worst. Sentinels are set on the walls of the three main cities, and patrols start taking watch on the borders for new possible threats.

2. The studies of the scholars at the Temple of Dawn & Dusk devise a new form of spellcrafting. Writing with special inks and symbols can work against corruption in some places. Crystal Scrolls are now being shared between clerics and arcane magisters from all over the Theocracy, and a copy of each one of them is always sent to a White Record, enormous tomes of sacred knowledge stored in the Great Library in Yula. The first scrolls to arrive at the Great Library are those who reveal the starting steps to master the manipulation of Water, Ice, Illusion & Wind. Knowledge about these domains will prosper with the coming years, as the Exarchs propel the scholars forward in their research so that they may build upon themselves.

The discovery of the gobbos proves tantalizing for the less than optimal level of trade in Vydai Dam.

So many flock into the river which leads to the northern goblin border. This creates an amazing opportunity for wealthier merchants, who set up the trade hub of Yeu Tihn directly north of the goblin’s northernmost border, connecting the closest end of the river to the goblin sea, facilitating and streamlining the process of getting goods into the goblin empire.

Action 2:
With the new traffic within the great river which leads to the goblin empire some Shtihnyr decide to explore and prospect the entirety of the river system for useful or valuable animals, civilizations to trade with or ruins to explore. Or even just some exotic resource which may prove to be of high demand in the Monos or goblinic empires.

With their psionic powers they organized the grunts and the breeders. This was about 100 years ago. The newfounded hivemind grew in power, building cities and developing their cult of the sky, an area untouched by the fish people and their ancestors. A temple to the sky was built on the highest peak near their homeland. This is where the exalted ones live. All the nobles report to the exalted ones and the true exalted is reported to by the exalted. The breeders malleable genetics where found to be able to be manipulated and create superior beings. A group of nobles in the eyesight of the exalted began to experiment with the breeders, the races has grown in strength and with this the cult sees hope to finally make themselves know and spread the knowledge of the power of the sky.

Nation&Race Name: Arakzi - Goblinoids
Capital Name: Karpol

1. Military Developments
The Arakzi military undergoes a period of reform in the army. The reform does not cover equipment or training for the rank and file, but is a reform of the officer corps. As the nation's elite caste has become morel iterate and active in political and economic administration the old methods of officer recruitment and the lack of training or testing to be given a commission deeply bothers the Domnakal's advisory board. Under their recommendation the old method of buying field commissions is done away with and replaced with a series of tests similar to that of those attempting to join the bureaucracy. The result of this is two-fold. First, the officers are generally better at performing in the field. Second, they're also better at lying their way through the test. In a twisted way both serve the purpose of the state. The more adept officers are useful as commanders, while those that were able to leverage family or personal magnetism to cheat through the test are naturally gifted and ambitious politicians. Both have their uses to the state as a whole, even if the latter frustrates the Domnakal. Corruption was inevitable, especially in a large country like Arakzi.

2. Road system
Sections of the army are put to work building roads between the cities and major towns . The roads are simple, but having them will facilitate troop movements and economic flow - especially in the east where river navigation isn't entirely reliable year round.

In the depths of a forest, a wolf of the stars offers their services to Fanw for her protection. This request would be granted, and Fanw would talk to them and enjoy their company for a time before going about their normal business as usual of wandering the wilds, now with some company. Wolves were always considered one of the most noble of animals to the Children of Fanw, and this would in time only solidify it. It also would likely make them seen as messengers from Fanw as well, with the same wolf of the stars in particular seen as a messenger for all Children of Fanw rather than simply for one or a Clan. It would likely be useful in warning about dangers, or letting them know of good omens.

Meanwhile the news from the small, yet intelligent creatures that were either food to or freed from something called Hobgoblins was a bit of worry. Of course, they weren't able to fully understand them due to the very limited time in contact and the fact no one in Llychlyn was trained in learning languages, but the news was important.

>Action One.
With people settling along the river and forest, a few more would head out to the east to get to the other rivers and coasts that were around. It likely would slow down after this point, as there still weren't that many Children of Fanw and there wasn't much need for more hunting grounds anymore, but there were still those encouraged to go out there...even if that encouragement had just stopped...

>Action Two.
Within the city of Allfshys, a nice little thing would be constructed, a proper archery range. This was mostly so there could be a more formalized archery training and allow higher quality archery training available to the smaller or less hunting or martial oriented clans. It also saved time for those who wanted to show their children how to properly use a bow and was a good place to practice for those who didn't want to go hunting that particular day or simply just wanted to try and hit as many targets as possible as accurately as possible instead of searching and hiding for a while before only getting one or two shots. Regardless, it would certainly be nice, and maybe one day would be expanded to also include some less noble but still useful martial skills.

2. To compensate for this change, merchants in Arnah start to form guilds and organizations for keeping up with trade between the cities. Arnah will continue to prosper in favour of the Theocracy.

>Tyrn Six of Pasad, Veil Piercer
Nassad has grown into a fine bird, one that would make any father proud. He is soft spoken, but his size and intelligence more than compensate for his quiet nature. It makes Pasad rouse with pleasure to see what an eagle his son has become. The vitality of his son reminds the king that he himself is well past his prime. A lifetime of hard flying, nonstop trips across the continent to manage not one but two capitals has taken its toll on his body. Flying for long distances is becoming more painful, and soon Pasad fears he won’t be able to make the trip at all. He considers abdicating the throne immediately, but dismisses the thought. The transfer of power ought to be smooth, and besides, he wasn’t quite ready to go into retirement. Rather Nissad and he will rule together for a time, before he steps down formally. Yes, this was the best solution possible.

Action 1: Even without Pasads health being a question, the western aeries, near the Krox, are becoming too complex to manage from afar. The king asks a trusted friend and advisor to take over the day to day management of the rapidly growing settlements. The advisor chooses a settlement called Magara, near the Kroxian border, to make his nest. The area quickly becomes a popular nesting spot and government center.
>Establish Magara in the Mountain tile southwest of the southernmost Kroxian tile.

Action 2: During the long flight back from the Kroxlands, the King’s wings suddenly give out. His assistants manage to guide him to an abandoned mountain range, but he requires several weeks to heal enough to fly again. During that time, the eagles take the time to explore the area. The mountains are harsher than the ones around Garudasana, but there are plentiful lands surrounding them, full of various species of prey. A few mate pairs seeking far open ranges and few other eagles head there to start a settlement.
>Take the 4 mountain tiles bordering the Ivoyin Empire and use any remaining expansion tiles on the surrounding grasslands.

>>3584012
A couple eagles discover that the shiny sharp prey to the north, when dropped from an extreme height can be split open to expose a delicate and subtly sweet flesh. When a few prey are together, they tend to bite and pinch, making catching them painful and difficult. However, when one can be caught alone and off guard, it’s quite a nice treat.

On the northern border an Arazaki Khal moves north to observe local reports of a settlement of strange creatures that had mysteriously set up literal shop in the middle of nowhere. AS settlers were streaming north under orders it became more and more important for a military presence to be felt on the border and for these visitors to be investigated. The issue was considered a low priority by the Khalima, so there was little incentive to send anything larger than a single Khal to investigate and torch the settlement if necessary. The unfortunate person the post fell to was one Khaltan Gromzuk Tulfar, a low level functionary in a border garrison given command over the operation. For him, it represented one of the most important milestones of his career, a potential shot at glory and a higher rank. For his soldiers, it was a reason to be forced out of their comfortable barracks and into the northern wildlands. The Khal was standard sized for their border doctrine. 200 light infantry, 200 heavy infantry, 50 bugbear shock troops and 50 cavalry of disreputable talent, a less than impressive force by Arazaki standards.

Before any battle would be joined though the Khaltan made an interesting move to attempt to communicate with the creatures before simply destroying their town. Two junior officers are tasked to ride to the town and get word from whoever was living there of their intention and ideally, their submission so they could all turn around and go home.

a group of robbed figures appears from the partially set up settlement, 4 in all, the smallest one, flanking the group speaks up, the sound of its glowing green whip dragging across the group finally ceasing.

>I’ll buy that belt and tassels off of you in exchange for a rock made of the stuff that makes my whip glow.

The largest figure, standing at an imposing 7 feet tall smacks the dissident on the head with one of his concealed 4 arms.

>Shut up dull head you can do the trades later we got more important matters to tend to

The large one, not seeming to wield any particular weapons besides some metal sticks looks back at the emissary of the goblins.

>Excuse him I think he hit his head when he was younger. Anyways we are the Shtihnyr, nobles traders of fine goods and wanderers of the 4 corners. We had some explorers come back a few years back with tales of your fine kingdom and a small portion the excess population of our humble great market decided it would be a good idea to travel up a river, pave a dirt road through the mountains to another river and finally go down yet another river just to get to this part of the world so they could trade something other than mushrooms at a poor price, and maybe make a quick bounty off of some generic Be-Hanese goods. We mean no harm and only with to connect the empires of the world through trade and profit. But mostly just for trade’s own sake. So please refrain from burning down this settlement, we promise it will only take up the surrounding 33 Terrasects (100 miles) in every direction.

With all the land now available for the Children of Fanw to hunt in, its only natural that the people of Llychlyn would have plentiful amounts of food and would be able to enjoy more of it, additionally it also meant there was more furs that could be made into clothing, leather, parchment or even for beds. Regardless, the abundance was useful and the people were happy...However, despite this the Queen, Eheubryd, was concerned...She would try to keep things as business as usual for now, until something happened that meant there was need outside of rumors for particular actions.

>Action One.
With the abundance and with the population slowly but steadily rising, Clan Howell proposed to Eheubryd of the construction of a grand temple to Fanw to be constructed in Allfshys. It naturally would be a work of art and made of wood and stone, artistic depictions of old stories about Fanw carved into the sides of the walls, statues, tables and chairs for feasting, a work station both for bone work and butchery in the back, a stone area in the center of the temple with a fire for the sacrifice of animal bones. Really it had practically everything and then some. Most noticeably is that it would become the tallest building in Allfshys, with a massive tower in the front of the building that could be climbed up by going up a small stair case in the back of the building, going across small walkways that looked over most of the building, and reaching the tower from these walkways. Considering how well things were going, and seeing how it would likely be fine to do so, Eheubryd would allow the construction to take place. After all, Fanw had blessed them, and it would give a better place for Clan Howell to do their work, including getting 'messages' from Fanw.

>Action Two.
Meanwhile, Clan Llewelyn would organize an expedition into the mountains. This primarily was done because it had been far to long since they last went out into the wilds, and the location chosen at the insistence of another clan which was curios as to if they could find a good area for mining, as the limited bits of metal that they could occasionally find wasn't exactly enough. That, and the Clan had some children who had only recently became old enough to join these expeditions, and as such, wanted something safer and easier for them than going to sea.

As you expand further south into the Glacial areas you find one major deposit of crystal.

The economic reform works.

>>3583288
The Dwarven Patriarch prefers to have a transition period. To create a joint town between the Dwarves and Monos at the foot of the mountain forest so the dwarves who are conservative can get used to them.

In the jungles, you plant Rice, in the grasslands Wheat and in the dry area's corn. Your food production increases!

You build better building in cities. It's a good pretty building which is not dirty or plain.

>>3583384
As you expand your land is clearly overstretched. Except for the mountains, you do not truly control the land you own, but merely use it as a hunting ground. Still, the wild tribes which reside there do not see you as their rulers.

>>3583903
Dragon's Shadow grows up well and will soon reach adulthood. Visions from the Dragon tell her to be fruitful and procreate.

You discover Black Pearls which can be fished out of Swamp Clamps. They are beautiful.

>>3583916
As you travel north the tribes of wild Elves notice you and are utterly terrified. A new legend is born and rituals which they think will exorcise the Daemons they see your people as. As you travel the shoreline you mostly find just various types of fish.

Everything seems normal. On the corrupted earth, only mushrooms can grow and most animals are dead except birds who land and fly away. Interesting red crystals with black spots are forming from rocks on the ground though. They clearly radiate strong magical energy.

You perform the ritual and summon a large number of Shadows.

>>3583918
You expand north of the river and Make better ships. Your Northern border goes now along the Foreign trade route letting your traders enrich themselves along with it and some Goblins even use it to travel to further lands.

Magara is estabisched and helps govern the land.

You expand even further trying to recreate your ancient empire, but your administrative apparatus is overstretched and barbarians thrive within your lands.

In the mountains near the Ivoyin Eagles get attacked by slinger-Dwarves periodically.

Your hunt succeeds, but you notice that the engines are to heavy to have the FLoating Crocodiles float, but they can still walk and swim. The Burrowwhales can burrow even faster with the engine in them.

You manage to take the mine, lots of casualties on both sides.

All of which decided to live there together as they live in underdeveloped parts of your nations. Due to the multicultural heritage, it becomes a rich trade City.

You find Flying Trees, they are very impressive. Even more, legends spring up about scary shadow people who steal and eat children.
You discover Cattuna, Ducksquid and Lioncod.

A Grand Wood Temple is constructed. As they climb the mountains they suddenly descend into a valley as ancient as the world itself inhabited by ancient Dinosaurs and Dragons nobody expected to still be around. Some of your people claim to have spotted Fawn herself riding the Star Wolf.

1. Artwork and Sculpting
The scultpure and artwork found in the old Ogre ruins inspires Arazaki artists. They create a similar style of artwork that follows closely the Hobgoblin form and glorifies the physical mastery and appearance in lifelike sculpture and painting. Wealthy and powerful Goblinoids hire artists to create sculptures of them in their physical prime, the state commissions artwork to decorate the capitol and other cities with realisitic, perfected examples of major figures, and the Domnakal himself is recreated by a sculpture and his likeness is placed in the palace foyer.

All of these pale in comparison to the ultimate sculpture. In the Temple of Vykul, a series of works commissioned by the church depicted each of Vykul's Five Meals. Each one is an idealized image of Vykul slaying one of the five Gods he has consumed, blade buried in his opponent, their heart in his hand prepared for consumption. Every visitor to the temple could be awed by the massive sculptures of this powerful, hungering deity.

The new kings coronation ceremony is unorthodox, to put it kindly. For one, King-Finem Pasad had been incapable of flying for the past five years, his left wing lame beyond recovery. As a show of respect for him, the ritual battle and bestowment of the Golden Helm on Nassad are performed on the ground, rather than high in the sky as they normally would be. Still, the coronation is quite jubilant in nature, and Nassad is quite warmly welcomed as the new leader of the Eagle Nation. As he retires to his nest after a long day of celebration, he considers what his first actions as king ought to be. The first thing to do would be to patch some of the gaps Pasad had left behind in his mad rush to bring the eagle nation back to its former glory. Pasad had been a good king and father, but his enthusiasm for exploration had often translated to a lack of focus on the management of the new lands the eagles had acquired. Many areas were plagued by feral rocs, there were even a few rumours of eggs being stolen! Furthermore, while the lands to the west were well known, Pasad had neglected to explore the other lands near the nation. This would have to be remedied posthaste.

>Tyrn One of Nassad
Action 1: The first step of any plan ought to be the gathering of information. Nassad decrees the creation of a royal messenger service to fly between the 4 nations, gathering information and relaying royal decrees to the governors of each of the territories and himself. The messengers are chosen for their flying skills and strong memory. They quickly became known as Blue-beaks, due to their distinct uniforms
>Messenger service

Action 2: The newest acquisition still lacks a formal governor. Nassad places a trusted friend in charge of this district, locating him in one of the most populated aeries, Kekada. A new governor should provide better management of this new area.

"Starting from many weeks ago, in the forests on the foot of the mountains near Sando, many Kagofon youngbloods are killed alone or in small groups, the survivors describe of great figures arriving from the skies that kill, maim all their brothers and sisters. They tell that this great figures not only have eat their flesh, but played with it too lauching their bodies around. Like some wood toys.

Blood is requested.
Elders and Adults of the clans of Sando are rather angry in their debate, there was great planning for find a way to reach the molekin and fight them before of this.

When the new emperor has know this, much like is father, with the discover of the evil molekin, he destroys half of is home. He then tells to prepare a great false hunt, in a very used forest on the south of Sando. The "hunters" will divide in two groups.

There the first group walks in the open, pretending to just go on a hunt, with some slingshots and spears. They will go south when hunting, in the points of the sky figures attacks.
The second part of the group will wait in bushes or under some fallen trees covered in leaves, remaining near the first group and waiting when this great creatures land on the ground. They shall have all the weaponry the Kagofon use (such as bows, maces, warcleavers and shields and the other two mention), alongside nests that are used when hunting great beasts or for fishing.

The great false hunt works, some of the "hunters" tell to have seen the great creatures flying around.

They fall on the first group, they are strong and fast as the Kagofon suspected since they where able to throw great rocks on our youngbloods. The first group responds and fight, but they lose many. Spears and slingshots are not enough even if they hurt. They fall back while fighting to the place where the second group is waiting, their bodies being thrown around or in the air. They are ripped a part or smashed by the weight of the creatures, the sky figures feast on them already.

When they arrive on the place of the second group, the second group can hear the screams of pain and hate of their kin.
At that point the second group can t wait anymore.

The second group attacks, with head on the emperor, they sing the Ivoy clan warcry. They attack the great creatures from the flanks.

They lose many, they too are thrown around or ripped in pieces, but their weapons create deep and many wounds.

They throw their hunting and fishing nests, some of this are ripped by the
wings of the sky figures, but a few catch on their bodies. Elders launch themselves on the mouths and claws of the creatures, blocking them and avoid that they hurt more Kagofon. Their resilient shells broke and broke again, and they too fall on the ground.
But this gives more time to other hunters, and the first sky figures die too. The war cry of Ivoy, becomes even louder and no Kagofon as doubts on what to do. As the emperor, after a painful and harsh fight, hacks a sky figure head and throw it to another one, the sky figures begin too go away.
They carve their way in the Kagofon groups, killing more hunters and fly away. The Kagofon launch their warcry a final time, and then go back to Sando."

The Arazaki Caste System

The Caste System of Arazaki has become more complex since the state was first founded after the Great Victory of UY 1. After the conclusion of the conflict that saw the Hobgoblins ascend to the height of political and economic power there was a need to rule the nation. This rule was enforced via racial caste system. The Goblins would work, the Bugbears would fight, and the Hobgoblins would lead. These lines became muddied quickly though as the Hobgoblins and Bugbears had often served as allies in unit prior to the war, and most hobgoblins still considered military service the most honorable method of social advancement and the only means of legitimate political advancement. Goblins chafed under the need to work. While their pitiful size prevented them from being much of a threat and made them easily bullied, they were crafty and intelligent enough to insert themselves where Bugbears simply lacked the aptitude. The Caste system needed to evolve to handle the position of Goblins in bureaucracy and also to contain the aspirations of an exploding goblin population. The solution was the inclusion of a few notable goblins to higher caste status. These High Goblins as they came to be known were only about a dozen families of high repute and talent, elevated to their position above their kin with the single duty of ensuring that they were the only goblins in that position. By turning Goblin against Goblin and ensuring that the Hobgoblin hegemony had a third pillar to destabilize Goblin pushes for equality the state could feel safe with its masses of goblin laborers.

The Caste System breaks down as follows
Hobgoblins
Bugbears and High Goblins
Goblins

In legal practice the first two pillars are equal. There is systematic racism to ensure that the highest posts are held and continue to be held by Hobgoblins, although it is not uncommon to see Bugbears holding high military office where they are respected and listened to on par with any Hob. High Goblins exist almost exclusively within the state apparatus, and thus has a much less visible and notable cultural impact. This is done intentionally, as the goblins are then hidden from public glories and so their status cannot harm the Hobgoblin-Bugbear superiority mythos that the state needs to continue its policies.

So what, then, is the role of the Goblin? The Goblin exists to serve and to labor for their betters. They farm, fish, and handle manual labor or domestic tasks. Goblins make up a sizable portion of the lowest positions of labor within the state bureaucracy handling kilns, making clay, and running deliveries. These are tasks to which they are ill suited, but forced into. Goblins, being crafy and intelligent, are forced to make up for physical limitations with innovative technology. Goblin shortfalls are thus a major driver of technological innovation in Arazaki.

The spikie's retaliation is a huge shock to the eagles, who hadn't even considered the idea that their prey might have been sentient as well. Several eagles(those who had lost mates in the ambush, as well as a few of the younger eagles) wish to retaliate, but the governor forbids it. The settlement here had very few birds here as it was, and the retaliatory ambush had injured or killed a full quarter of the adult population living there. More casualties would be an unacceptable risk. For now, the Eagles choose to simply avoid the spikies and await further direction from the capital.

1. Education

The education of the elites has always been of importance. Even among the lower classes education is seen as a necessity for advancement. Much of the state testing is done in writing, reading, and arithmetic. The means of acquiring the education was varied. For some in the cities like Karpol or Arak, the easiest means was through direct schooling in one of the city academies. The other means was through having a mentor or test preparer. These people would be experienced test takers and would train others in the methods best used to take and succeed in state testing.

For tradework the best, and only real education came from apprenticeships. While there was no formal guild system there was an unspoken hierarchy in the cities of which groups did certain types of work, and they all had their own districts within the city. Nurzar and Karpol have the largest such industrial areas, with most of the education in them being in tradeskills. Over time these continue to improve and develop with practice, experience, and some degree of competition as businesses look toward the new foreign markets to sell wares.

In the academies the focus on education has always been split in two directions. There is the test preparation and there is cultural learning. For those seeking higher office, test preparation is but a small portion of what truly matters. The cultural and philosophical discussions held within the halls of various academies are what drive government and state philosophy. As graduates of these academies leave to take up government posts the cultural lessons learned in school are what inform and build the general decisions of the government itself.

2. Military Technology
The Arazaki state turns part of its attention back to its military for another period of developments. The introduction of new weapons, particularly ranged ones, is considered important. To this end, the state looks for replacements for its self-bows and javelins. What it finds, is the crossbow. The design wasn't particularly revolutionary. It's biggest draw is the ability to scale it up and down for the three races of the country but the one that would find it the most useful is the humble goblin. With a crossbow that made up for physical limitations with mechanical power even a humble goblin could turn into a useful battlefield asset. This development would essentially let the Arazaki state better utilize its manpower for military purposes.

The construction, stockpile, and integration of crossbows into general infantry units begins two years after its discovery, such was the slow adoption process and the need to create a sizable enough manufacturing area to meet demand.

While the nation was all talking about the news that clan Llewelyn brought back, Eheubryd seemed a bit less concerned as the years went by. There were no messages from Fanw that were warnings, and there was no sign of these creatures that were rumored for quite some time, yet as the thoughts slowly left the forefront of her mind, she couldn't help but still have a creeping worry in the back of her mind, leading her to every once and a while worry about it despite the fact she shouldn't...She hadn't any dreams about those creatures though, so Fanw wasn't warning her...yet...Hopefully that wouldn't change...hopefully.

>Action One.
It was only natural that news of such hunting grounds, thriving and untouched by time, with Fanw herself even there, would lead to some to try claiming both the mountains near this valley and the valley itself. Of course, why wouldn't they? It was practically a paradise of sorts to a Child of Fanw. Most that went here however, were the most experienced and skilled clans of hunters, along with some from the more religious clans like Howell. This is due to the fairly obvious reason that the game here is likely to be most dangerous to the hunters, and holy to the faithful. Despite this however, a few others would head out here for another reason, that being it was much more likely to find some metal of use in the mountains than in the woods, and the more craft oriented families were getting a bit annoyed at a few shortages.

>Action Two.
However, despite this general expansion to the south, the clan Llewelyn would move their entire clan up the stream Allfshys was on, and while not settling on the coast, they weren't too far away from it and could easily operate the city as a port one through the use of the river. This City would become such slowly as a few of the nearby hunters and minor clans living nearby headed to it. And naturally, it would be named as Llundain, which is similar to one of the most prominent members of the Llewelyn clan, though obviously this is likely intentional.

With the two cities established, each one of them gets new edicts for focusing their service to the citizens of the Theocracy. Vinadel is tasked with establishing a major mining complex in the glaciers below, as to exponentially increase the extraction of arcane crystals. Torann acts as a bridge between the trader guilds of Arnah and the taskmasters of Vinadel, so that Arnah can distribute with its navy the resources from the latter city.

1. Make roads connecting Vinadel and Torann. This new path will prove to accelerate the transport of resources from one city to another, spiking the growth in the economy.

2. Build a harbor in Torann, as to transport the crystals by boat to the portuary city of Arnah, closing the trade network with the rest of the Theocracy's major cities and territories.

The birds perched before Nassad were the finest specimens the Eagle-lands had to offer. Most were civilian eagles, but there were more than a few Blue-beaks and guard eagles amongst them. They had been hand-picked by the king and his governors over the past year for this job and divided into three groups, one for each direction that had yet to be explored. They had spent the past two night in a deep meditative trance, putting their minds into perfect alignment with the stars and the earth own navigational field. They were ready.
With a single great wingbeat, Nassad throws himself straight up into the sky, a wave of bown and gold feathers following him. The three groups split off, diverging north, east, and south respectively. Nassad watches them until they disappear into the horizon, praying fervently to the First-Eagle that they will return safely

Although the fur whales presence makes transport a little harder, and the occasional bump on the ships scares crewmen; the Exarchs rule not to harm the creatures. They are peaceful in nature, it seems, and the Goddess wants Lyrians not to harm them in their path to prosperity. So be it.

1. Temples are constructed in Vinadel. Some of the marble statues made feature fur whales, as to provide luck in the sea travels of the destined caravans that set path towards Torann.

2. Expand eastward, focusing on the settlers coming out from Vinadel. Lyrians will take the rivers there as transport routes, as they have been using them for generations.

It was a quiet few years now, no visions or any real change, and by extension, no worries for Eheubryd...Then the small creatures came, the ones that killed the gods of those encountered by Llychlyn during their first expansion. They were organized and planned to conduct trade, which they'd be able to do some, however, as quickly as they came, they seemed to vanish. Those who were to the south eastern lands of Llychlyn spoke of seeing them but in a much less orderly fashion, like they were in disarray. Though this was still some concern to Eheubryd...but maybe, just maybe, they didn't have to worry after all...Maybe Fanw did something after seeing them as a threat?...Either way it did make Eheubryd a bit relieved, at least chances were, if these people with their god eater went after them and Fanw, it would not be anytime soon.

Meanwhile, the wild Valley would be named Maes hela Fanw, after the stories of sightings of Fanw herself and the many great and worthy quarry to hunt from a time long forgotten that were once thought to have been one of their kind, slain by great hunters in stories of old, who lived in abundance there. In a sense, the location would become something of a holy site. One where the greatest hunters proved themselves and their worth.

>Action One.
With the mountains now firmly under the control of Llychlyn, the Local clans in the area who set themselves up there would start digging in the search of Iron, which was in short supply and certainly would make the quality of life in Llychlyn significantly better with more plentiful access to tools...Hopefully the miners would find something more than stone, though at least stone itself had its uses if ore couldn't be found.
>>
>>3589460

>Action Two.
Meanwhile, the military would be given a reorganization. Specifically the proper creation of one that was more than just a bunch of hunter levies. Those who wished to could dedicate themselves to a life of martial prowess. There would be five kinds of soldiers, Gwaywffyn mynydd, Rhedwyr goleuo, Bwyell gref, Saeth gyflym and Meistri rhyfel.

The Gwaywffyn mynydd, Bwyell gref, and Saeth gyflym who are young soldiers and new to their field of war, or who are drawn up from the civilian population are ifanc instead of mynydd, gref, or gyflym, and they are essentially lightly armored soldiers with spears, moderately armored soldiers with axe and shield, and bowmen with a axe just in case respectively. Rhedwyr goleuo meanwhile are more or less hunters drawn up from the local population who are well versed in the local terrain and made scouts, they are more lightly armored and equipped than the Saeth gyflym, and the Meistri rhyfel are the soldiers in the most expensive armor and weapons as well as being the most experienced as a Gwaywffyn mynydd, Bwyell gref, or Saeth gyflym, and have a light bow if they are the former two. The Meistri rhyfel are the smallest of the five kinds of soldiers however, and are usually made into officers.

Finally, it should be noted that to become a Saeth gyflym, one has to be a Gwaywffyn mynydd, and then a Bwyell gref first, as the youngest are made Gwaywffyn mynydd and become Bwyell gref after some time, followed by eventually becoming Saeth gyflym, however this is merely them being allowed to advance, and they can stick with their chosen weapon. Much to the annoyance of the younger soldiers, this is strictly enforced to ensure that the soldiers who become Saeth gyflym are strong enough to use the bows provided to them, which are significantly larger and harder to draw then the average hunting bow.

The whales calm down once they get used to your presence. You see you made the right choice as the creatures are not only majestic but also unexpectedly friendly. Many times after storms when your sails broke they towed stranded boats close to shore... something that for sure would have lead to the death of the crews otherwise. Now you notice that a decently sized flock of Furwhales has been caught up in the ice as it froze over for winter. It is clear that all will die unless picked.

Vinadell becomes known as Furwhale City and tourists visiting it are both surprised and fascinated with the obsession of the locals over their fluffy friends in the sea. Various merchandise related to the Furwhale becomes a commodity within Lyria.

>>3589460
You do not find Iron, but you certainly stumble upon something interesting. Mainly Ironwood, fossilized from ancient times. Now as brittle as stone, but still full of metal. Your priests expect that there are living specimens of the Ironwood in the valley and cultivation of the plant if found could solve the Iron shortage permanently. You also find a bunch of dinosaur/dragon bones.

Your army is reorganized, though some of the more traditional tribes do not wish to participate in the reform and instead offer their Warriors in war as auxiliaries separate to the army. They fear such a rigid organization might rid them of their warrior pride and traditions.

It was understandable that some of the particularly old clans who were martial in nature would like to stick to their ways, and they'd be allowed to. Their soldiers would be considered as a special kind of Rhedwyr goleuo, particularly for fighting skirmishes and ambushes, more so than normal Rhedwyr goleuo. However, there was also something else of note that had happened, the discovery of blowguns and of ironwood. The former is a considered inferior to the bow, but its novelty is something charming, and it leads to a few more paranoid people to make versions of it that look like flutes just in case, but over all the effect it has makes people working on it to consider new and generally considered unusual idea's. The iron wood however, lead to a very unusual but useful possibility. If the tree's wood was as strong as iron, then it would be able to make extremely durable buildings and ships as well as unusual but useful tools made from the wood, and of particularly noteworthy interest, arrows of pure Ironwood. If not and instead the wood simply had iron made inside it, then a near infinite supply of proper iron could be made so long as the tree's were maintained.

It would take a little bit of time for them to gain an audience with queen Eheubryd along with some of the more important people in the lands, however, they'd eventually manage to get it. Being explained the benefits of the drug, a natural question arose from Clan Tudur, how much would it cost? Of course, regardless of the price, some would be bought by a few members of the local clans who were in attendance who could trade for it as well as some members of the major clans, however most noticeably, the queen herself would buy some...Trade would start to expand between the Shtihnyr and Llychlyn, however it likely would have an affect of Llychlyn, for better or worse.
>>
>>3593712

>Action One.
Eheubryd didn't buy the "Blue Spice" as it was called to use it for its actual benefits, she simply kept it specifically for future experimentation to see its effects and how it was made. However, she didn't plan on doing this alone, and figured this would be a perfect excuse for her to finally get one of the most important things she wanted under way, the construction of a university for research on both the magical and mundane and the teaching of the knowledge gained there to those who wished to go there. Eheubryd was a scholar before she became Queen, and honestly she knew, or at least thought, that wasn't the most fit to take the throne when she did. However while she had little time to actually enjoy more scholarly work, she figured that this might be a bit of a ticket for her to relax for once, and it would insure that its construction would be ordered now while she was alive...Still, the construction of the wing of the building for sciences and the more mundane things in life would be well underway.

>Action Two.
Ironwood was, in this moment of time, an extremely important thing for Llychlyn to get. It was of extreme importance to many local clans and minor ones. Naturally, the procurement of the seeds for Ironwood trees as well as the wood themselves would be done as swiftly as possible, though they'd try to keep the tree's in the valley taken down to a minimum due to the simple fact that the valley's forests were as sacred as the lands themselves, and that chopping for too long might bring unwanted attention that only the greatest hunters had a chance of dealing with without losing a limb or their life...

The trade with blue spice would continue, it wasn't actually prohibited after all, likely to the joy of the merchants bringing the stuff in, and they'd be none the wiser to the terrible deal they were making...At least for now, anyway. Though, the members of clan Howell would seem to be the only major clan to abstain from the drug, at least as far as others knew at least. In other news, the ironwood would have been collected, luckily without much incident, much to the joy of a few of the clans who were more on the craftsman side of things than anything else.

It seems there was a mistake made in the construction of the construction of the wing of the building dedicated to science and more mundane things, specifically in the fact it was of magics. Of course, this was fine, that was the second wing she planned to have constructed at around about this time, but it was at least somewhat amusing to her that this little mistake was made. Still, the construction of the actual wing of the university dedicated to science and more mundane research would quickly be put underway while the more magical wing on the building was starting to be used. The building, while only partially completed, would be known as the Royal University of Allfshys, and it would be the lasting monument of Eheubryd's rule next to the grand temple that was allowed to be constructed for Clan Howell. Once it was complete, the work on blue spice and what exactly it did could begin.

>Action Two.
With the Ironwood and the trees secured, a sawmill a long distance away from Allfshys, but relatively speaking close by, would be constructed. Specifically made for the chopping down, refinement, and replanting of ironwood trees, it would prove to be a main source of ironwood and likely would be the main supplier of ironwood to Allfshys, and likely Llundain as well. It's likely the quality of ammunition for bows, tools, and houses would increase massively after this, though houses wouldn't be a priority when it came to the allocation of ironwood.

>Tyrn 6 of Nassad
The King is still without a heir, a very worrying prospect. Still, there is room for hope. Nassad is still full of vitality, looking like a bird twenty years his younger, and several eggs show promise of hatching soon. So the kingdom continues to soldier on, same as always.

Action 1: Some of the surplus Kroxigans are put to work, building a place of heat and flame to attempt to purify and forge the gold. The efforts should be simplified by the fact that gold is a soft and pliable material.
>Feel free to not give me anything useful op, this is more of a setup action than anything else

Action 2: The Kroxigans are ordered to dig new mines, looking for iron.

With the Royal University of Allfshys and its construction completed, along with ironwood lumber yards being properly planted and the refined logs being sent back, the general prosperity of the capitol was at an all time high. Yet, despite this...A particular drug was still being sold freely, and despite all the years, only rumors that the deaths of a few Childen of Fanw from a handful of minor clans had died from the drug itself after losing every to the merchants just to fuel their addiction...Regardless, these rumors weren't too widely spread and considered ridiculous by most, some believing it to be slander caused by Clan Howell who many believed thought the drug was sinful at this point. However, while the blue spice would continue to be a easy profit for those that sold it, and the business would only grow, most of these sales would happen in Allfshys, with Llundain mostly out of the way of most of the foreign merchants who sold the spice due to the boats that transported people up and down the river being smaller and used for the transport of vital goods more than luxury ones, along with the price to borrow one's cargo hold...And, this would likely prove to be a major thorn in Llychlyns side once the drug was finally documented and known outside hushed rumors that were discredited by the merchants and those who had become addicted...Hopefully, the merchants wouldn't plan something once the news came out...

>Action One.
Eheubryd, along with plenty others working in the Royal University of Allfshys, would get to work finally examining the Blue Spice. They'd try to see what it was made of, how to make it if at all possible, as well as all its effects on the body of those Children of Fanw who had taken the drug. Initially, the work was mostly just to see how addictive, if at all, the substance was and what effects it had on the body, good or bad, while trying to find a way to produce the drug locally, potentially with some changes as to remove or at least reduce any negative side effects, like crippling addiction, as a way to try and become independent of the foreign merchants and to potentially create a better drug...What they found from talking to those who had taken the drug was that it was extremely addictive...and it was quite likely that though their years of experimentation they'd find many many bad things about it...Maybe even things that could prove that minor rumor true...

>Action Two.
With the population of Llundain slowly growing, the city would eventually decide to copy the capitol and start the construction of a practice archery range for hunters and soldiers. Archery was a Llychlyn tradition, and it only seemed logical to have a place to practice it for the same reasons Allfshys had their own range. Needless to say, it would be of little surprise for all Llychlyn cities to eventually get one, if not every village making at least a basic one as well.

(The spice does not flow to well over there but it is at enough of a quantity to be viable for the superrich)
Experimental doses of the drug are administered to some of the animals of the university. It is found that the drug is deadly addictive to the point of killing those who use it if they don’t get their fix, many who bought the drug are found either dead or in deathly in debt to Shtihnese merchants. Although a select few have now found their realms and wealth vastly expanded, though their coffers are largely devoted to the purchase of the drug.

Caravans expand, now massive lines of necrong constructs travel in droves in order to gain safety in numbers, and on top of the that greatest caravaners are armed with weapons which can kill with a bang and leave holes as though a tiny spear crashed through the bandit in the dead.
>>3594726
The greatest among the merchants is innitially taken aback but soon realizes that was probably an act of miscommunication that actually means marching.
The great trees are recalled and the grand merchant announces that the flow of trade now lies threatened, and that the entire nation should prepare to either die in battle or leave to golder pastures.

Action 1:
The southern mine is collapsed, the cave in is blamed on the drow, they are told that if the drow get here they will subjugate the blue men and force their race into a spice deprived haze of cruel slave labour. They are told that the Shtihnyr will work to revive the mine so that the northern mine will not be strained to much by the increased demand and supply lines. If only the blue men will take up arms en mass in order to repel these vile invaders from the homeland of the blue men and Shtihnyr, onward to their Capitol! Make them pay for their treachery and brutality!

Action 2:
Through exposing indebted Shtihnyr to the blue stuff the outcome of the battle is attempted to be determined if it is to fail the Shtihnyr will retreat to the four corners of the continent and to the mystic Shtihnyr dominated lands of the east across the sea.

(Rolling 8d8 for the QM change, half the rolled number to be expanded on each direction)

The Exarchs rule Lyrians to expand west of Vinadel and east of Yula.

1. With the new boost to the Theocracy's territory, more natality increasing policies are set in place. Lyrians will need to be born so that our cities are populated and our walls safe with plenty of soldiers.

2. Advancements in technology are made because of the Arcane Crystal extraction in the far south of the realm. Lyrians discover a lot of uses for the crystal, outside of its inherent magical capabilities. Embedding the crystals in weapons and armour seem to provide boons to the wielders; and carrying big chunks of the crystal on board of ships makes them balance better and resist storms better. These devices are then named by the populace, "Glimmerstones".

The Arena is built out of the finest materials, Limestone is excavated from the nearby karst formations, forming high walls and terraced seats. A colossal ammonite fossil serves as both the centerpiece and a podium for the arena, where prizes or goods for the fighters can be placed. On the inside lower floors, the House of Ancestors is built. Stone Ivoyin hold up the arena, reminding the people of their eternal debt to their forefathers. The structure’s sheer size makes it one of the biggest buildings in Ivoy. It can be seen even from the new dockworks constructed at Ivoy, where traders and fishers are already beginning to bustle.

The Garudakal, Kroxigans, and Mroen Empire fall into a sort of stagnancy. No real changes happen here. It is almost as though they are waiting for something.

The Blue Spice is very...blue. Odd, when Eheubryd thinks about it. Blues are one of the rarest and most prized colors to the Fanw. Natural things were green, or red, or white, or even yellow, sometimes. Almost no blue. And here comes these traders, with so much blue, they would sell it to even a commoner. Why would the Shtinyr give it away for no reason? What could they gain?
>Blue Spice (1/3)
>Accelerate by cooperating with other nations or kidnapping a Shitiyr.
The archery spots become multifaceted places. They serve as recreation places, training spots, public gathering spaces, even as religious practice for the more devout Children.
