So the helm of destiny is in the mushroom/bear area. Makes perfect sense. Anyway we still have two battles to fight and win before we can get to serious searching. (Otisbits and MarKing).

I think its actually between the bear area and somewhere else.

If its in that hex, I'd say its under the middle tree where the trio of toadstools would meet. DIg a hole there after chopping down the tree.

What was in the ashy hex to the north?

M6 Lippy Form Stack M23 "Too Random" Move W Attack Otisbits
M13 Lucky Chop wood x2 Make shovel if possible he'll chop from the central tree
M21 Loopy Form Stack M23 "Too Random" Move W Attack Otisbits

If we can we'll add our stack to max out the stack from the home hex

Congratulations to those who solved the puzzle. Hope I didn't make it too easy for you.

Turn 15 has started (sorry for the delay in processing - being sick early in the week made for a rushed Friday/Saturday/Sunday).
As suggested by the Apparition, you can expect boats to arrive soon.


Also, perceptive Marbits have noticed the sky is turning dark, and a chill wind is blowing from the South.

In the Marbit vs. Otisbit combat, did the Marbits get completely shafted on defense, or are we still missing something in the formula? The 16 Defense listed would just account for the shields; there should be 23 more for the Marbit's base defense (2 per Marbit except for 1 fat marbit w/ 1D).

Combat two and no levels? Aww man, this sucks. The sky is dark. We need shelter. Now how do we get shelter...

I have a question, what do you need to plant a tree? Can Huggles just plant another tree or does he need to get a sapling or a shovel first? And what does it take for a hut? (In terms of actions and wood.) Also when it does rain, do we only need to spend on action sheltering or all four? I want to move in to the western hex, but their is no wind protection right now their...

Also M14, if I harvest wood (I got saw and all) can you provide the berries?

The 16 defence is the max dice you could have, since only the Defence of the top 8 units is counted.
The DRMs are not dice, but modifiers to the dice.

You won, didn't you?
And quite handily.

Obviously the combat system is quite broken and onerous. So much for the optimism of youth!

To plant a tree you must have a living tree in the same hex.
A hut takes 4 wood and 4 actions (with a tool).

When it comes to sheltering, you need to spend at least 2 actions if you don't want to get sick.

Dave I think there's been a mistake... Look at the defence for 7 Otisbits plus an otisfang 7 x2 + 6 = 20 not 18

however the even bigger mistake is that for the marbits 12 x 2 = 24 not 16 and our spears were ignored in the defence DRM It should be +19 not 16

!'m basing the def calculation on our combat score which is 12 x 2 + 7 stacking +4 swords = 35 and again the DRM is wrong 4x2 +2 +2 +3 =15


So the Otisbits Lost 2 Def rolls but we could have caused 2 more wounds however we lost 8 def rolls with the chance of avoiding 3 more wounds



With the possibility of ignoring 7 extra wounds (50% of 8 +3) lippy may have survived... besides him and M17 were the best protected each having +3 drm on def

So why do we get all the dice in attack ? We would have been better staying in 2 stacks ? We had a Stack of 9 coming from the south and a Stack of 3 coming from Southeast.

I'm still not understanding it

If it does not make sense, you must acquit.

It is a stupid system, and I regret it immensely.

But lippy is still cwoaked.

The system hugely favors larger groups as far as I can tell. Which means we probably shouldn't be asking for a retroactive balancing.

Anyway, M22 'Huggles' Orders
Move south
Move South
Harvest Berry
Tend Bush


And people in this hex: plant trees before you chop these ones down.

Hey, I'm taking suggestions on what I should work next on, some ideas though

1) Irrigation! Build myself a shovel and start an irrigation system too our bushes. No more need to tend them hopefully.
2) Mud bricks! Build forms for them, mix dirt and water, and boom! Bricks. The perfect building material. Well probably not perfect, but better.
3) Basements! There basements. Not sure how useful they would be but still, we could add a room to them.
4) Kitchen/Larder/other useful room. Maybe these would have an effect on stuff. Works well with basements.
5) Reenforced Huts: Maybe we could get more effective sheltering. Perhaps upgrade to tower.
6) Lots of wood. I have a saw, perhaps it is my duty to produce wood with it. Arguably I have undeniable competitive advantage here, so I should probably do this.


Ideas? suggestions? I'm leaning towards 6 'cause of that one moneymancy class I took during my pre-popping years.
