Riveting gameplay, literally a no fun allowed pop-up
I'm playing on a second last difficulty and food (being a valueless, ethereal entity) is just not something you can have in abundance
what the fuck did they do with this?

Trade goods, horses and even food for more cows if you want.

A fair amount of nomadic people and Indians and the early medieval Irish. Cows are too valuable to just straight up eat, you should think of them more as a form of currency.

I am playing KoDP, each Hunter handles 4 Wildlands, is that correct? How do I ratio my farmers? The amount of farmers I have handle both pastures and croplands, but then the pastures will depend on the amount of cattle? Some advisors also mention oxen. How do I properly set the amount I need and check for growth?

Is there any practical reason to actually maintain the shrines to the dead gods that you start with or are you just punishing yourself with resource loss until you finally give up on it? Does the game reward you for it in any way? Are any of you even playing this?

They give yearly bonuses sometimes, and help in some events.

No that's how Central Asian horse tribes worked. Maybe if you'd actually play the game you would also understand that the tribe has been blending since you broke the taboo.

>>
>>1530837
There are only three main ethnic groups and two of them just have a cultural difference.
You play as a clan which is a merger of the two genetically distinct people.
The swarthier (if occasionally red headed) Orlanthi and the more Aryan Lodrili/Dara Happan/Nivorahians
>>
So which all gods can die then? All of them except Elmal and Dostal?
>>
>>1535067
Central asian horse tribes all looked the fucking same, they were not some motley mix of the fucking rainbow tribe lmao
Especially a place like central fucking asia where there's no fast bulk transport on waterways to enable the relocation of massive amounts of aliens to new lands.

The kind of racemixing we see today wasn't even possible until ~1700's, let alone the bronze age

man if you think this kind of thing is accurate to how ancient bronze age civilizations worked you're out of your mind. Not even the biggest trade hubs of the sumerian empire would've looked this diverse

fucking libtards and their brainrot I swear to Christ

You need to get your fucking brain checked if you think local tribes in the brozne age were so genetically disparate they had 30 different skintones and racial features

You should have just left it at, "it's a game lol" instead of bizarrely claiming this is 'normal' and what ancient civilizations actually looked like. No, it isn't. This is libtard delusions of bronze civilization based on contemporary feel good moron politics.

My advice to you is go the fuck back to whatever safe space shithole you crawled out of. You hate this place and the people here and yet you keep coming here like some kind of drug addict. Maybe there's a reason for that? Do "/pol/tards" just do everything better?
>>
>>1530866
Those aren’t nomads, they are after the semi-Nomads had settled with another group and formed a kingdom, about 100 or so years later. There was plenty of intermixing before that too with Yeleni, Egreshite and Dara Happans. It continues a bit even In lights going out as you can adopt groups from the tribes to the south.

>>1538921
Arachne Solara is the strongest in Glorantha because she is thought to be the reborn soul of all Glorantha. The power of none of us is as strong as the power of all of us, the way I fought but We won. The mother that birthed a great compromise that goes beyond compromise to be better than the sum of its parts.
But what if there is no compromise? If instead there is a hateful, hopeless, thoughtless, entropic strike on the very idea of it? Then how could she have any strength at all?

It's corny, but I like that even without Ernalda, from the Prison of the Strange Gods to the ends of the underworld, Orlanth has always found another way.

Urox was NEET untill his home and family got Wakboth’d. He’s most miserable of the gods as he is eternaly stuck in the desperate struggle in godtime.
>>
>>1539754
Wakboth did nothing wrong.
>>
>>1539765
Wakboth did everything wrong. His theme is reacting to the inherent evil of existence (represented by Kajabor) by trying to outevil it. Nysalor is the one who arguably did nothing wrong.

Well none of them cheated like orlanth did vs Yelm
>>
>>1540104
Yelm was the one that cheated, Orlanth was the real winner of all the contests, the judges were all just corrupt Yelm flunkies.
>>
>>1530837
The magic and the skeleton horsemen tell me that the devs aren't exactly going for historical immersion.

Ragnaglar TANKED that.
>>
>>1539780
What if Wakboth chose not to be bad?
As for Kajabor, it is a shame that he doesn’t seem to ever come up directly in Lights Going Out, but then it might be difficult for him to since anything Kajabor destroyed is do utterly give that no one can even remember it existed.

By dying. But getting penetrated and failing is what Ragnaglar does best.
And like Vadrus, everyone hates him so they just let him stay dead.
>>
>>1539780
The more interesting question is whether RAGNAGLAR did anything wrong.
Since Ragnaglar failed his initiation (and was driven completely insane in the process), he was still a child rather than recognized as an Adult and full God like Orlanth and the rest of his brothers. As such, he is neither fully in control nor responsible for his own actions like an Adult would be.

Seems like a good end to me. Everybody is free, bad things can no longer happen to good people. Justice, peace and equality reign supreme forever and ever.

Gods of justice, peace and equality are all dead, sorry. Goddess of rape is still around for a while
>>
>>1541910
They stayed for a little longer to finish the job.

Thed did good in that scenation, she ensured nobody will ever get raped again. Think about it, most chaos gods represent things so vile unmaking the cosmos seems like a rational choice.

It's out. Remember, dried goat meat stops starvation!
>>
So does the game just end if you participate in any of the chaos shit?
>>
>>1540596
Yelm consented to each contest. Yelm knew about Death, because Shargash used it against Umath, Orlanth's father, on Yelm's order.
>>
>>1543246
You can do some chaos stuff without game over, especially since most chaos is sneaky. You’d need to purposefully keep pursuing chaos to get a game over for it I think.
>>
>>1543316
I thought Umath was just dismembered, not killed
>>
>>1543388
Umath was dismembered into his sons but was also killed.
Shargash does have the Death Rune.
>>
There's so much fucking shit to do in so little time. Even 3 generations aren't enough.
>>
>>1543819
It feels like you have much more time to do stuff compared to Six Ages 1 at least. I didn't have much trouble sending traders and emissaries to all the other clans while also hoarding artifacts from trading and spirits from exploring when I picked the medium length option. I even delayed the marriage ritual because it let me directly explore for special artifacts.
>>
>>1533377
Bronze Age warrior societies typically killed all the males of their conquests and raped all the women. So they did have multiethnic societies in a way.
>>
>>1543819
What do you wanna do that you don’t have time for?
>>
>>1534013
There's a couple of things you get out of maintaining shrines/temples:
Certain events get new answers if you have the right shrine
Visitors from other clans occasionally visit to pray there, usually with some sort of gift
Atleast one of the new Rituals you can discover requires you to have atleast a shrine to a specfic deity
Certain treasures are easier to find if you have them
Occasional divine blessing

There may be more but that's what I've come across. Don't know if there's any difference in maintaining temples vs shrines, but the latter is much easier to maintain than full temples.

>>1538257
I think Inilla and Osara survives too, atleast they did in my game.
>>
>>1530818
If you sent the special fire children off with Elmal during SA1, you'll get them on your ring in SA2.

I don't have an appropriate Ride Like the Wind save for this
after LGO, I don't think I can go back to RLtW
feels bad man
>>
Here's a real question.

1. Is this an improvement over Ride like the Wind?

2. Since this is set in the Great Darkness, how hard is this game? I expect shit comparable to the Hard Mode of KoDP where you are constantly barraged by bad events and raided by hostiles.
>>
>>1552124
>1. Is this an improvement over Ride like the Wind?
Yes.
>2. Since this is set in the Great Darkness, how hard is this game? I expect shit comparable to the Hard Mode of KoDP where you are constantly barraged by bad events and raided by hostiles.
It's harder than KoDP. Mainly because it's much harder to snowball.
>>
>>1552088
Fucking awesome. I remember he got special dialogue for that event in Ride like the Wind but I didn’t have they would actually make use of it in LGO after how stuff like the Antlers were handled in the transition.
Thank you anon.
>>
>>1552124
>1.
Yes.
>2.
In KoDP, food is an issue at the start, then never again. In RLtW, food is occasionally an issue. In LGO, food is a problem the entire time. You really never get to feel secure that your clan isn't going to starve.
There is a steady stream of bad events the whole game, but in the last few years it is as you imagine: a constant barrage. It can really test your preparations.
It is definitely harder than the other two.
>>
>>1551289
>>1552088
What do you mean by "sending them off witb elmal"? I don't recall such an event in sa1
>>
>>1552220
Explore Hill of Gold with one of them and you'll get it eventually.
>>
Anyone figure out a decent way to train up your clan members? Rituals are complete trash now.
>>
>>1552617
Not really.
The best I have is keep a shrine to the ancestors, and keep the "famous deed" blessing going the whole game. Over time, this ensures that your people have good skill in one area.
One the other hand, with all the named story characters in LGO, you almost always have talent available. There's less need in this game to take someone from zero to heroic.
>>
>>1552625
The problem I'm facing on the hardest difficulty is that the named characters keep dying.
>>
>>1552453
Wow, I had no idea that was a thing that could happen. Just shows how much work they put into both games. Also gives a reason to replay RLtW.
>>
>>1552617
>do 3 successful "personal prowess" rituals over 3 years with a Renowned combat character
>combat is still renowned
What a fucking scam.
>>
>>1553025
Osra or humakt’s?
>>
>>1553033
Humakt, Osara, then Humakt again.
>>
amazing how the gods are dying left and right and reality itself is breaking down and yet my clan members still find the time to argue over the pettiest shit like a bunch of 4channers.
>>
>>1553134
It actually makes sense that they would bicker more than ever, because the gods that deal with peace, harmony, law and understanding like Issaries, Lhankor Mhy, Ernalda and Orlanth are among those that are dead.
