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).

There are two goals that guide our actions - to kill the Terrasque, and to convert this planet's inhabitants to the one true Football. Though at first these may seem to be disparate and separate goals, the latter actually feeds into the former, as clerical knowledge gained, and the power of devoted followers, can be weaponized for use against the Terrasqu, and Elway is more likely to let us prevail if we first spread His word. But besides the religious aspect, we also need to create seige weapons, or draft an army, for use against our many opponents. To these seperate ends, we must build a stadium - to worship and train the common folk in Football; establish a monastic order - to be missionaries travelling the planet, to teach peasants in the arts (including the art of turning adamantium into ammunition), and perhaps even to fight in our battles; improve the resources of the current forge - so that it may be able to create the Trebuchets (can we make cannons?) that can slay larger foes; and create a headquarters for the peasantry to organize much of this on their own. Remember that Port Barry is, above all, a port. It can import laborers, skilled and unskilled, any materials necessary, and export missionaries

Trumpaladin's first stage is to use his perception to judge the most pure and worthy of the unconverted peasants. These, he converts with his showing of Superbowl XXXII and Elway's Helicopter tackle. these shall become his first monks and establish the monastic order of Mile High. This monstatic order will have several functions. Most will begin the missionary process of converting the entire population of Port Barry to Football. Some will assume the role of educators at the Port Barry Parochial School, which may need to be constructed. They shall train the citizenry in every essential art. And some will board the next ship out to far off lands to spread the word of Football

>Ballistae
This would be an insanely useful tool. Essentially a giant crossbow, having three or so of these with teams, and with Adamantium tipped bolts, would be able to fell - or at least damage - larger and stronger opponents

Also, cannons have better range than ballistae tho less then trebuchet, do comparable damage to a trebuchet, but also have significant damage reduction-negation (with the potential of using explosive rounds ^_~)

Okay, what you're describing, I have only 2 comments.
1st, it will take time, I mean you're not going to immediately convert a bunch of people in a few minutes, it might take a day or so, then time to train, etc. As for the feasibility and quality of the idea, i have only one thing to say, which is my second point:
Football.

No matter, he has time. Assuming the treasury is secured - and that is the most important step, because he really will need that 120,000 shekels as the down payment for this program - Trump starts a public function - a rally, if you will - where he gives a speech about everything his group has accomplished thus far, and how they will bring jobs, jobs, jobs to the lower class citizens of Port Barry when the manufacturing of weapons begins. But while speaking about how he will make Port Barry Safe gain, Work Again, and Great Again, he mentions Football.

The purpose of this rally is two fold - to instill trust for the group in the citizens of Port Barry, but more importantly, to look for those six or so people who will approach him to talk about football. They, he will convert. And they in turn shall become monks, who will hep find other monks

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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
