Welcome to the game eirikdaude.

ok, so I should have 10 skills now (once my skills are properly updated) so I'd like +1 int

Also my character might make a suggestion to Traknesh to use his lead to oversee cooking since we just lost all our food.

Active: Nockit will question the sick Kobold as to what his recent actions were. He will also question other Kobolds who saw him. He will then try to find and (safely) investigate the source of the affliction based on the information received. If he suspects something airborne he will take a piece of hamster cloth to cover his face.
Passive: finish setting the trap
training: armor (con)

I'm really not sure sure what would be used to find out what's wrong. Persuade for my interrogation (or possibly sense motive if he was afflicted doing something he was supposed to like sneaking food which turned out to be poisoned) and possibly perception or a knowledge skill in finding the source? Regardless I'm going to attempt it.

[Knowledge - Defensive Strategies (Int) 1 Int 5 Rolls 1d5 +1 (fluff) Result 2]
R1 S 1 D 5 ÔÇô ongoing +1XP
shouldn't that be R2 S2?
[Persuation [Cha] 0 Cha 3 Rolls 1d3 -2 (noskill) +5 (morale(fearless leader) +1 (fluff) Result: 5]
Wouldn't have made a difference but my FLS is 6.

Where are the 3 javelin shafts, anyways? I don't see them in KnickKnack's inventory, nor anywhere in the room's inventories. Maybe I just keep on overlooking them. :shrug:
Also I dunno if that question got already answered, but what is that in R10 of the map? Looks like some kind of crossing/fork. And perhaps a door or something else blocking the way?

KnickKnack's actions:
Active: make javelin heads out of bone (rat) (2/3 turns)
Passive: make javelin heads out of bone (rat) (3/3 turns)
Training: Perception (Wis)

Proudly he walks around the mine and while at it he uses the passage from the room with the two ore veins to the granite wall for the first time. Halfway through it he stops. The cave walls here are just made of wood! A whole passage is covered with planks covered in wet clay and mold. On closer inspection there is something written in one of the planks. Looks like human language.

Ludo will get updated on what has happened since the colony was established, and take an axe from the first room as well as a couple of stones he can throw at stuff? He'll also get a firegem and try to improve its quality / cutting, if he thinks that is possible. He'll order whatever idle kobolds he can find to start mining the quartz deposit at T18 while he is away.

Ludo's actions:
Active: Scout up the hill, while trying to stay hidden, keep an eye out for precious stones, minerals and enemies!
Passive: Improve gem (for 5 turns)
Train: Melee - edged (i.e. axe skill)

________________________________________________

Excited that the passage had finally been completed, Clink-Clank is overjoyed and begins to celebrate. When he hears of the sick Kobold, he stops celebrating and runs to the aid of the sick Kobold.

Concerned with everyone's safety, Nockit and Clink-Clank investigate the source of the one Kobold's malediction. "Hey, you, what is your name? "Kaleb" Ok, if we're going to help you we need to know what's wrong, so I need you to answer my questions. Now tell me when did it start hurting?... And what were you doing previous to that?" "It started hurting tonight it was so painfull I thought I have to die. Still hurts like fire in my bowels." He answers your questions. After coaxing what information he can out of him, he will also continue his interrogation with the other kobolds to see if they know anything else. Ozt can't remember hitting him, but he isn't sure. Clink-Clank gives the kobold some mint to chew and trys to get the healspell working, but he seems to be not successfull.
They continue their investigation by checking everything the sick Kobold came into contact with for a possible source of contamination.

On another front Nockit works towards finishing the set up of rat trap. Unfortunately, his efforts didn't stop them from losing their food but he couldn't account for everything. Still this will be one less thing he needs to worry about. While setting the trap he notices there seems to be a lot more rats in this wall than he thought. He hears constant squeeks.

KnickKnack was excited about his little project to make some projectile weapons. He already helped kill the tiny giant spider by throwing some spears, but they proved to be ill-fitted for this task. How much easier it would be with a weapon actually made for throwing? Once he would have finished the javelin heads, all that was left to do would be to assemble them with the shafts, and then, maybe have a bit of target practice... KnickKnack tried not to let his anticipation ruin his concentration while he was working fervently on the item.They should turn out at least as well as the shafts; at least that's what he hoped for.[/spoiler] And after a while he notices his spearheads are even better than the shafts.


Hello friends! Ludo is here to help make colony stronger. You have made good advances!? It looks very good here, I'll help make even better! Now I need to scout surrounding lands to see what is available to us! I will climb the mighty mountain and return victorious! While on the trail I'll have a weapon and some work to be of more help to all, you mine shiny stones while I'm away! It has been very good to see you all again!
<heads out after having talked a bit more about what has been going on with the other kobolds>

In the hills he looks around a bit and seens not much new but suddenly he hears something. He managed to sneak up on some old dwarf. "I tell you there has to be gold here! Just because I did not find it the last twenty years... Nono I will not ask them! They want my gold!" The dwarfs gathers firewood. He is armored with a heavy looking plate armor entirely made of iron and armed with a very well made hammer. On the hammer are runes and one (meaning dragon in dwarven script) starts to glow very softly. Ludo thinks this one might be a bit over his combat strenght and retreats.

All kobold are hungry.

Re: Kobold Mine - Turn 6 [one slot open]

Post by ChuckDaRighteous » Wed May 28, 2014 8:21 am

Hmmm... seeing as only one Kobold ate spider meat, Nockit guesses that is the source of the affliction and moves on since there is no further threat. Either it was naturally poisonous or improperly prepared. Either way the meat is gone so its beyond testing.

Also we should have 2x rat not 1x. (one from last turn and one from this turn)

Active: Nockit will convince Prisarz to continue training his trade while Nockit takes care of Bo (by trying to ride him)
Passive: Will attempt to identify the gathered foodstuffs (hopefully with the help of someone more knowledgeable) so the cooks can get to work, hopefully with no poisonous mishaps.
training: perception (wis)

As I understand it we choose his skills and at specialist he gains +2/1/1/1 so I'd say +2 farm/+1 charm rodent/+1 tailoring/+1 animal training. If anyone has better suggestions I'd be open to them.

Question / Free action: Does Ludo know how dwarves and kobolds normally get along? Does he think it would be a good idea to try to talk to the dwarf?

Active: Continue exploring the hill, more specifically heading to the old quarry which he's heard is located up here. He'll all the while try to stay hidden, taking especially good care not to be noticed by the dwarf. Try to find something edible on the way to the quarry, also try to keep an eye out for gems or rare minerals.
Passive: Continue improving the Firestone

@gathers I think we might be able to combine our rolls for the check rather than having to do them one at a time, hopefully giving us greater success.

@badge yeah I know it seems cruel but Nockit's concern was making sure there wasn't risk to the rest of the settlement. Now that he's alleviated that fear, food is the bigger concern. Nockit is more about the greater good and you seemed to have that problem in hand.

Krat looks satisfied that he got some of the gold out of the vein and turns his attention to back towards the firestones. He grabs one and starts investigating it with his magnifying glass. He attempts to figure out just where the magic in the stone is strongest and where there is none. He then proceed to plan on the best way to proceed before he starts working on them to prepare them to be used as spell components.

Active action: Look for the best way to refine the firestones.
Passive action: Refine as many stones as possible while keeping it at a DC 15. Continue this for 9 turns (I guess it's only one but wanted to make sure)
Training action: the spell enchant

I feel bad for not writing an update for so long but I only had limitied PC time in the last week.
I have been working, on a festival (Thu to Sun), playing Pathfinder, meeting friends and stuff.
Believe it or not doing a turn costs me a few hours and today I wont find them (again). I start doing the turn and perhaps I can finish it tomorrow.

@Chuck/Gathers: Its possible to add checks for nearly everthing. makes me wonder what you could do with a lot of spells and a lot of kobolds that know how to use them.
Also we should have 2x rat not 1x. (one from last turn and one from this turn)
Damn I wanted to delete that line. You can keep the rat. ;)

@eirik: Dwarfs do not like kobolds. You could say noone realy likes them, but dwarfs have more reasons (same teritorry, same interests(gold, gems, mining))

@Gathers: Passive: attach javelind heads (rat, fine) * 2 to javelin shafts (ash, good) *2

Ach, shoot, I need to CRAFT them together, not just put nose A into slot B?

Difficulty 5 eh? And I can not get a better spear than the quality of any of the parts involved, right?

I'll think about it and calculate it through and then edit it into my post. Of course I will only use ONE javelin head and ONE shaft, in that case.

Thanks for pointing that out. :thumbsup:

Hmm, since dwarfs and kobolds don't really get along, I wonder if it would be possible to (secretly) craft a landslide to bury the scary dwarf?

Also, my skill at gemcrafting was a bit worse than I thought, I guess my understanding of the rules is sub-optimal... Is it possible to change my mind on how many turns I spend improving the firestone?

Actually I've been brainstorming a different idea on how to deal with him...

I think i may back out of this actually. Not technically because it isn't active, more to free up more time for myself and my other activities. I want to either give my all or none.

but thanks for an interesting game thus far.

Thats a pity. If you want to give me suggestions how to make the game more interesting write me a PM.

I will put Click-Clank on auto-pilot digger.

exactly.


somewhere between 12h and 2d.

@Gathers: Making a masterwork takes a lot of time. Especialy if you do not know what you are doing because you suck at the skill :p

mass producing extremly cheap spears takes 3 craftmen kobolds with skill1 and wis4 they average at 2.5
1 kobold: make 2xpoles 2x3 turns average 7,5 - rugged
1 kobold: make 3xspearheads 3x2 turns average 5 - normal
1 kobold: make 6xspear 6x1 turn average 2,5 - ruged

3 kobolds 6 turns 6 rugged spears ^^ double time you get normal spears. and at cosy 60+ turns you can expect PERHAPS masterwork. AND you must give the frst 2 Craftbolds a 30 turns headstart else has the 3. no materials.
But I am babbleing.

________________________________________________

Nockit realizes the need for food and tries to determine what the cooks can safely use. While it isn't something he is too familiar with, he figures he has to try. And if a couple of them work together, they should be able to figure it out. KnickKnack's worried about the whole food situation and the possible food poisoning one kobold is suffering from, and therefore helps Nockit to identify the gathered berries (and herbs), hoping for something edible.

"Prisarz, your skills are quite useful to us. We need them to be top notch if we're to survive this expedition. Go continue your training. I'll look after Bo for you." "Sorry but I dont think you can handle Bo with your curent skill. He becomes kinda agitated, if someone touches him and you need to know how to do it without him trying to run away or bite your hands off. But I too think we should try to get stable food. How about training some of the younglings over there how to fish and get berries and hunt small animals? [Forage] And perhaps if one of you can help me get a bit of extra food for Bo so I have a bit extra time I might train."
[After Prisarz is off training Nockit mounts Bo and takes him for a quick ride] As Nockit tryies to mount Bo he makes a surprised sound and takes him into his forehands. His eyes bulge out of his head and he opens his mouth wide to let out a bloodcurling scream. After that he tosses Nockit a meter and runs away with a cursing Prisarz in tow.
Perhaps you should ask Prisarz for help with the hamstertraining.

Ludo got rather shaken by discovering a very scary dwarf prowling the area. Even so, he figures that since he's climbed the hill he'd better try to explore a bit more before heading back. He needs some results to show! He decides to head to the quarry he's heard the other kobolds talking about. He's hungry though. Is there anything to eat around here? Inbetween walking, searching and hiding he continues cutting and polishing the Firestone. It is very shiny, but he is not making as much progress as he'd have liked. He hopes it winds up as good as he's hoping in the end.
On his journey to the querry he finds nothing to eat but a few bites of a plant he knews to be edible. Not nearly enought to be filling.
There is a lot of unworkes stone in the querry more than he can carry [31x stone, hard (granite)] a few simple wooden picks are scattered about. [7x pickaxe [wood (ash) / wood, (ash), fire hardend]] In the shack is a crate with 15x iron pickaxe head, two barrels with a strange black powder, 4x rope [hemp] and there are a lot empty sacks and crates. Its way to much to carry everything alone.

KnickKnack is extremely happy how the javelin heads turned out, his chest swelling a bit with pride. It's a bit of a shame to put together components of unequal quality, but it can't be helped for now. He still hopes for a good result and can't wait to bring down his first enemy with the new javelins. Last but not least he figures he should be able to wield the spears he has been carrying around for quite a while now, in melee combat, too, and practices that a bit.

Krat looks satisfied that he got some of the gold out of the vein and turns his attention to back towards the firestones. He grabs one and starts investigating it with his magnifying glass. He attempts to figure out just where the magic in the stone is strongest and where there is none. He then proceed to plan on the best way to proceed before he starts working on them to prepare them to be used as spell components. He starts to assemble the tools they had been gifted and as soon as he starts he is battered with questions of the other kobolds. "How do you do that? Can I touch that firestone? Hey look its sparkly! Can you refine the wartog tusks too?" They distract him a lot and he thinks it would be wise to put up a own room for the tools.


Since you do not have enought food to feed everyone the kobolds decide they eat a turn later. If there is not enought food they begin to starve.

All kobold very hungry they might begin starving soon.

Since no one has taken it yet, I going to go ahead and take the fine sword which everyone has neglected. (and change it in my combat preset to draw my sword instead of my knife where appropriate)

Active: persuade Ozt, to come help clear out the new batch of spiders.
Passive: set his final trap right outside the boarded up tunnel just in case something breaks through.

questions:
How much exp did we get on the identification attempt? Thus far its seemed we've gotten 5exp per success which with 7 successes would be 35 exp, But we only got to lvl 2? Is there a cap on how much we can gain per turn or a exp penalty for splitting it between the two of us? Or something else I'm missing?
[R1+2+1 S4 D7] ÔÇô ongoing Gain 2 meat (rat) 2 entrails (rat)
No rat fur?

Also can we eat berries as they are now? Is there a need to cook them? or some advantage to cooking them?

well how should i put it... I feld generous and let you identify everything with single rolls and not with one huge roll (with a dificulty of 20 or so) so you have a chance to feed your people next turn. Normally you would get 5xp for the single roll but you had made more than one so you get more than 5. 35xp for 2 kobold in 1 round seemed a bit much to me. You could say there is a cap. In combat you also do not get 5xp per attack, but 5 xp for the combat.
I do not know which LVL-Progession I have posted as your last stand (or if I forgot to post it)

You get 1 meat 1 entrails 1d4-3 rat fur 1d4-2 rat bones per rat. This two rats were to skinny/scared/bald to yield usable furs.

You can eat the berries right away. Right now noone would care. Kobold prefer a healthy (meat) diet (meat) of differend (meat) foodtypes (meat). So cooking it together with something else (meat) would make them happy.
