[Dungeon Lords] Game 2 - Tayrun the Mighty Rules the Underworld!

They meet in a tavern. They quaff a few ales. Before the night is over, the strong warrior, the wily wizard, the commited priest and the sneaky thief form an inseparable party of adventurers, ready to rid the world of evil. And wouldn’t you know it? There just happens to be some evil within easy walking distance. A dark lord has filled a nearby hill with tunnels, traps, treasure, and trolls.

And so the next morning (or the next afternoon if too many ales were quaffed) the heroes set out to fight for Right, conquer the dungeon, and punish the wicked lord (by taking all his treasure, of course). It’s a classic scenario, and any veteran dungeon crawler will tell you that’s the way things ought to be.

But what about that dark lord? Does anyone ever think about his feelings? Those adventurers, who have never done an honest day’s work in their lives, can not begin to imagine how much effort goes into building a respectable dungeon. They have no idea how hard it is to tunnel through granite, how expensive good traps are these days, how diffi cult it is to find qualified imps, or how much food it takes to feed a troll. And the bureaucracy! Dungeons must meet rigid safety specifications, gold mining is subject to strict regulations, and taxes are due whenever the Ministry of Dungeons feels like it. And as soon as the dungeon is built, some band of do-gooders comes along and hacks everything up. Life is not easy for a dungeon lord.



This will be a Play-by-Post (although mostly done through PMed orders) game of Dungeon Lords for 4 players using the advanced rules and special events, but not the tricky items expansion. You take the role of a young aspiring dungeon lord (just 15 to 20 decades old) who is trying to get a dungeon lord license. The Ministry of Dungeons gives you a trial period during which you attempt to build a high-quality dungeon and protect it from adventurers. At the end of two years, your dungeon is visited by Ministry officials who give you points for your engineering and tactical achievements.

    I've sent invites to 3 users who previously told me they were interested in playing, which means signups are open for 1-4 players depending on response. Extra spaces will be filled by semi-random draw (preference given to players who didn't play last time), with anyone who doesn't make it in added to my private signup list in case I ever do this again for some reason.

    Hooray! In case it isn't clear, I'm no longer grudging you for that BSG game (you know what I mean). Or maybe I am, and this game is just an elaborate ruse created to torture you... muhuhahahahaaaaaaaaaaa!

    Also, don't worry, I have no idea when this will actually start. I figure I'll give people until at least Tuesday to respond. I was just bored and this is easier(?) than doing something productive with my time.

    I'd also be interested, but I understand that there are people who have been waiting longer and been around the forums longer than me, but at the very least I'd like to make the list for next time... If that's cool?

    E - Have played the game quite a bit in real life so am totally up to speed on the game rules.

    I only invited 3 people, and 1 already declined, so the remaining 2 spots are open for anyone, and like I said, will be filled by random draw. Although maybe I'll give priority to people who didn't play last time (sorry Doe!). I'm editing that into the other post, so now it has always been that way! Although you might get in by default if I don't get any other signups, so who knows. :P

    Totally understandable, I was just posting in case you don't fill up. I'm fine with standing aside for people who haven't gotten to play yet.
    I'd buy the game myself but my board game group seems to have died off.

    So apparently the week between Christmas and New Year's is the worst possible time to attempt starting a new game. I absolutely will start this up in the near future, I just kinda need to remember how to do everything. But it will be soon!

    Completely understand. Whenever you're ready to start it up is fine with me.

    Dude, you don't need to apologise, you are doing everyone a favour by running a game, so it is totally up to you when you kick things off, who with etc. People are just appreciative that you are hosting! Well I am... I assume the same is true for others.

    I'm actually going to retract my sign up for this game as I'm going to be running a BSG game here soon and will want to focus on that for the near future. Thanks though.

    Does that mean there aren't enough players? Or still too many based on previous sign ups?

    @Tayrun - you can sign up to actually play, if you like. If you'd rather just reserve up, that's cool too. Either way, I've got all my issues worked out, so I should finally be ready to start this tonight, so please let me know ASAP.

    Ok, so by "tonight," I obviously really meant "tomorrow night." So our players are @admanb, @Capfalcon, @Cerberus, and @Tayrun if he wants the slot, or @38thDoe if Tayrun declines. Any color preferences? Choices are blue, green, red, and yellow. And you may want to pick a character name, or a (probably embarrassing) name will be chosen for you.

    Man, I have way too much stuff going on. Thought I'd get this started this past weekend, but between my wife's birthday and family in town, it didn't happen. But things should kick into full gear starting... now!

    Rolling for seating (a,ca,ce,t): 44, 20, 29, 7

    So the resolution order for Winter of Year 1 will be The Red Panda (admanb) - The Yellow Dog (Cerberus) - Green Grinch - Tayrun the Mighty (Tayrun)

    Choices for inaccessible orders have been sent.

    Oh, and does anyone have a suggestion for a good hosting color other than dark orange that isn't too similar to a player color? It seems like it's too close to goldenrod, which I prefer for yellow because actual yellow on the white background blinds me like the light of a thousand suns.

    After looking over MrB's list of colors that work on both the new scheme and Ye Olde Style, I'm thinking either brown or chocolate. Thoughts?

    Edit: I think I've decided on brown.

    Edit #2: Switched to chocolate.

    I'll be doing pictures instead of text after this (unless everyone really, really prefers text), but just a quick reminder of what everyone has to start:

    Gold : 3
    Food : 3
    Traps: 0
    Imps : 3
    Evil : 5
    Adventurers : none
    Monsters : none
    Prisoners : 0
    Unpaid Tax: 0
    Dungeon:
    --+--
    --+--
    --+--
    -----
    
    (+ = tunnel)

    Edit: I should probably put that in the OP at some point, heh.

    It's in the setup section of the rules. Also, you should know there's an empty bottom row which I just edited into my text up there because apparently Vanilla turns five dashes into one long line.

    Ok, so I just realized that I never put the special events in the OP. I'll work on that in a bit. Hopefully it doesn't change anyone's inaccessible order choices when they're up (but if it does, let me know).

    Ok, Special Events are now in the UI post. Please do let me know if you'd like to change your inaccessible orders based on that (or any other reason before we start the round). Just waiting on inaccessibles from Tayrun the Mighty.

    Year 1, Winter

    Progress Board:

    Main Board:
    Spoiler:

    The first event is a special one... Title Envy! When we get there (at the end of Spring), we'll assign titles, just like we would at the end of the second year; but oh no, the prize isn't Victory Points... it's just Evil (for exclusive titles)! Please be aware that Pay Day and Tax Day will both come up later in the year (ouch).

    Inaccessible orders:

    The Red Panda: Buy Traps, Hire Monster
    The Yellow Dog: Recruit Imps, Get Food
    Green Grinch: Build Room, Hire Monster
    Tayrun the Mighty: Dig Tunnels, Recruit Imps


    Please PM me your orders for the round in the sequence you desire and post here when finished.
    Example:
    1. Improve Reputation
    2. Buy Traps
    3. Build Room

    Play order is as shown above.

    Good luck and have fun, you evil bastards!
