This thread continues the ongoing saga.
For those new/unfamiliar, this particular Game is based on Dungeons and Dragons 3.5ed core rules with more references and add-ons than you can shake the random stick at, and further additions are available upon request.
New players are ALWAYS welcome, but please don't be a faggot (lit or fig).

Dude, with that idea you're going to get more than six people. I'm just sayin'.>>5641
No, a trebuchet is clearly the staple option for war machines. Having said, a well-rounded operation would include all 3 mentioned as well as others.>>5643
Yes, but no. The thing is, 'transmutation' is just a name. Its ability to transmute outside objects (polymorph) has been expended. I should/will call it something less grandiose in the future, as the name is a little misleading.
Copy that, I'll have some new bread by then. Take it easy.
Also a note about panzerkampfwagen;
Given the technological sophistication of the time, the best you're going to be able to craft for now is a Da Vinci-style tank, though further development is limited only by ingenuity, crafting skill (Thez knows a guy) and the subsequent die rolls.
Those six are just to help start the process of finding the rest.>>5643
It may be wise to begin the construction of a library in Port Barry to contain magical knowledge
>>5648>1 post by this ID
Who is this newcomer?just kidding
Okay, so of those who are receptive, you're looking to form an ace-team. Very Trump of you, I get it. Also the library isn't a bad idea. While that is the purpose of the library in the tower, there is no harm in having more resources.
Incidentally, at this point only Lenos has actually read the manual, so the party is still kinda at his 'mercy'.
Also, I rate the stadium as only costing about 50,000 bits (equal to a standard castle), so you have more resources than you might expect, and that's without converting the gems into coin.
>tfw this thread doesn't appear on the overboard or homepage, so I missed discussion
Don't worry, its all been clarification, illustration, and discussion. I'll bake nu in a few hours

This is what I get for trying to have a shred of originality...>>5642>*humps leg*
It's okay, I tried to negotiate with them, then go around then, and then kill them with Football - none of which worked
Don't feel bad, you were trying to reason with an elitist insect who's entire position was based on inheritance and groundless authoritarianism. You'll have much better success with other factions, I assure you.And actually, you may find that the remaining ants didn't care much for her either and are glad she's a smudge
Oh, you could have easily killed the others with Football, but note that aside from trying to prevent you from entering the Queen's chamber, none of them rushed in to assist.
Are there remaining ants? Do they still appreciate non-deadly foosball?
Please also put the quick rundown of recent developments in the next thread.
Of course, who would want to lose their head cuz they lost at foosball??>>5658
Can I befriend these ants through common interest? With the Queen gone, they're under threat of losing all of their edge and developing thorax vaginas: I will teach them sustainable ways to substitute their lost edge.
Also, can I increase stats or develop new feats in the traning room? I want to practice throwing MY new kunai knives.
Yes and yes. You haven't met him yet, but you will find the newly presiding Myrmarch to be far more reasonable and diplomatic (not in a pussy sense, but in a 'interested in the hive developing beyond a queen (though there's that nasty issue of breeding) sense') and interested in cultivating relations with the surrounding cultures and factions.
Also, that's precisely what the training area is for.
*stealths off to go have a diplomatic chat with the new Myrmarch about virtual divegrass
and whatnot, bringing hide for crafting*
Also, do I have access to crafting arcane weapons yet?
There are a number of books on the subject, and you can certainly research to increase your skill. Plz note though, you're starting from scratch (skill level 1, developing upward). You have the option of developing your own skill or appealing to more skilled crafts-ponies.
Do I get feedback from the Myrmarch?
Does crafting masks and soccer balls
count as experience?
As basic crafts, yes. Crafting magic items is more intensive, requiring not least a proficiency with magic. ^_~
You can and will, but in the paraphrased words:
"For now, I think its best that we leave the Ant Hive to the Ants."
idk if an Earth pony suddenly showing interest in crafting magic items is in character atm... Maybe I'll find a way to get Lenos to make me one later.
What does the Myrmarch think of my Truncated icosahedrons
As for crafting, it certainly won't be as easy as it would be for a unicorn, but that doesn't mean it can't be done. Still, if you're looking for immediate results, Lenos is a good option.
"Also I know a guy!" Thez is up BTW.
Music dude here for a quick check in,
Do we want music music, or ambient noise?
*stealths off to training room, to grind kunai throwing*
>won't be as easy as it would be for a unicorn
D-do Earth ponies have any unique quirks? Can I perform wildform feats, or something of the like?
I'm not picky. My mix is more adventure-themed, but whatever works.>>5672
Earth ponies would naturally have a greater capacity for Strength and Constitution, but there is no prohibition on development (that I can think of).
Likewise Unicorns would be Intelligence and Wisdom, while Pegusai would be Dexterity and Charisma.
>is grinding with kunai
So.. how do I acquire new skills and martial disciplines?
Well here's the thing. Aside from my earlier indication of "largely/moderately skilled", your skills are as yet undefined. As a 12th (maybe 13th, I haven't crunched the numbers yet from last night) level rogue, you have LOTS (rogues get the most skill points FYI). Additionally, there is the topic of feats which amount to 'special moves/techniques', which you also have several of. Depending on your (and not just your) preference I can summarize/detail the specifics, or if you have the time and are bored I can direct you to my personal favorite resource on the matter:https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/SRD:Skills_by_Typehttps://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/SRD:Feats
I pick up the greatsword. And ask thez about it.
Alright... (I've never RP before, and can't really make heads or tails of this). I prefer to keep things mostly ambiguous at this point though, because I'm really learning as I go...
As for racial abilities and limitations, I'm not sure about Tracy... There is no real established "pony" race, among role-playing games; and a lot of w00t's Tracy pics on DB are labelled "semi-anthro" because of her flexibility of movement.. Overall, she's a meme-OC with an inconsistent design. I welcomed the chance to turn into a mount, partly because I could just play as the 'Awakened Horse' species, which was why I didn't triple-wield at any time during that play. The problems also come up with character evolution. Horse aren't exactly given very much specificity, when it comes to getting stronger over time, although but beyond level 6 they're geared to evolve into unicorns or pegasi, BUT I DON'T WANT THAT because it's horseshit. Long term, I was hoping to write-up a unique class for character development based on ghost rider and the book of revelations, having her being corrupted through wicked feats, insanity, and demonic possession (like she does in the books) for the sake of unlocking monstrous evolution pathlines, but I'm still totally new to this stuff....
Also, you said that ponimaru's body would be reconstructed, but his mental state wouldn't automatically recover: any chance I could take advantage of his PTSD and threaten him into making me a ninja scroll
*continues kunai throwing practice*
If you inspect the thread,
You will notice the rapier is mine thot.
also here's some ambience cause I wasn't able to make a playlist today:https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/dungeonRPGSoundscapeGenerator.php
Probably best for inside the pyramid,
I'll find some shit for any bosses tonight
*paints portrait of scruffy and pins it up on the throwing range*
*continues kunai practice*
You awake GM?
Is the building still levitating?
Had stepped out for a bit, getting up to speed
"Uhhh, that's Lenos',..." she says, in spite of the fact that its many times larger than he is.>>5677
I'm basically viewing Tracy as a standard player with slight modifications. For attributes I'm leaning toward either dwarf or half-orc. Unique/custom race/class is exactly where I was going. As for ponimaru,... well that's complicated. He's got some shit to say the next time the opportunity presents its self.>>5682
Yes. Until it is deliberately 'grounded', the building will maintain an elevation of about 60-70' off the ground (variable as desired by the 'driver').
Greatsword is lennos's how he even use?
For persective, the sword is about 11' tall.
infernuis go to the forge(thats where lennos is right?)
Yep. He's there, a bit dingy with a pair of ruby goggles on, a pair of clamps in one hand, a hammer in the other, and a piece of metal sticking out of one of the smaller forges (there's actually several, we just call it 'the forge').
Alright, enough stalling, time to bake
Also, no pressure Confed-anon, but Thez wants to know when/if she'll have the chance to help Trudeau "win" in the CYOA thread
