    Left, South. (@) Magical (3) Reptiles

    I just can not resist dinosaurs. Raptors in cloaks, hissing enchantments to bring fire and doom upon the non-scaly. They can even get breath weapons! Dragon/dinosaurs!

    Magic is cool as long as you aren't a bug or fish person. Remember, magic is so advanced science can't explain it. So it must logically be better.

    Where is the equator? So we know where really hot and really cold places are likely. We have 2 mover per turn. Do you mean 2 on land (like birds) or 2 anywhere (land or sea)?

    Sorry for missing this! Once a place is chosen, really hot/cold areas will be noted. volcanoes, tundra, etc. will be evident. Don't want to give too much away before you guys doom yourselves pick a habitable spot!

    Happenings!
    Your 'civilization' is largely based on displays of dominance and fighting in order to assert power over one another. Over the course of a few generations, your people begin to realize that if they arm themselves, they will be much better equipped to secure themselves more land and sexier chicks, man. It also comes in handy for hunting and defending your territory from various beasties. Your people have a slight understanding of magic now. Being that you are a race that is able to take to the sky, you've begun figuring out how to control the wind! Pushing intruders away, stunning food with a strong gale, and giving yourself a little boost to carry heavy things is about all your magic is good for now. Who knows what the future may hold though?

    Not everyone is able to use magic. Not yet, anyway. What everyone IS able to do, however, is make weapons and armor! One of your more inventive citizens has found that if you use your beak and feet to weave reeds together it makes a pretty durable covering. It's light too, and won't impede your flying. Wings are fragile. Talons, however, are definitely not. One of the more clumsy guys managed to crash into a briarpatch on his way back with food. In his panicked flailing, he managed to cut up some folks pretty well with the thorns embedded in his legs. Maybe you can make these into a sort of weapon to make your kicks pack more punch, so to speak?

    TL;DR
    -You have minor knowledge of air magic!
    -You can make reed armor if you get some reeds together
    -You can get some kickass fightin' spurs if you get some thorns and stuff!

    DECISION TIME!
    Where would you like to explore? (Direction or coordinate works) - 2 sq. max

    Actions
    1) Improve Military Abilities
    2) Improve Magical Abilities
    3) Improve Politics
    4) Improve Science
    5) Make reed armor! (-1 wood)
    6) Make spurs! (-1 wood)
    7) Breed (-1 food, +10% population in 2 turns)
    8) Other! - Specify what

    Now you need to name your race!

    We are the proud Tengu, because Tengu are awesome.

    We should explore M27 (the closest resource) and improve our politics.

    If we're going to spread over the lands like an airborne plague, we should probably get organized.

  • zekebeauzekebeau Registered User regular
    Move to M27
    1) Improve Military
    Name: Cassowaries


    sure we take to the skys now. But we have taste of weaponry, and I like it. I say we create a race of warrior monks, specialized in talon combat. As such, I've chosen the name of one of the most vicious and deadly birds for our race.

    If anyone comes up with a good enough cock fighting pun, I'd pobably change to support them though.

    We should be The Phoenix.

    We should explore M27 and make armor.

    Does moving diagonally count as one square or two?

    I imagine us as a chicken-like race and so I propose we name ourselves The Giant Cocks.

    Kaplar has revealed unto us the correct answer: The Mighty Ducks

  • zekebeauzekebeau Registered User regular
    Giant cocks is too obvious, Kaplar's Mighty ducks is pretty nice. Capfalcon's Tengu sounded odd until I wiki'd it.

  • kimekime Queen of Blades Registered User regular
    Guys, we haven't met anything yet, we don't need to make armor yet. We need to expand for resources, and up our tech.

    SC-terms, we are not going to 6-pool! Tech while we have the opportunity.

    Also, screw politics. We are a flying, magical race of war-birds. I don't think negotiating is high on our priority list when we encounter other species. They will be our slaves!

    Tengu does seem like a fitting name. Are we all crow people? Or have numerous species evolved into a coherent civilization? Cranes would seem like a fitting political caste. Do we have a leader? I'd assume it would be the largest, most powerful among us, given our military focus.

    I agree with @Kime that this is the time to tech up. But I'd rather focus on magic. Mostly because I want Raven Shadow-Assassins :).

    As far as population diversity goes, you guys can decide how the classes (if there are any) etc are broken up and arranged. At the moment, you're all savages living in a group of nests. So don't get too fancy :P

    Move south-east to the food. Improve military.

    Who needs weapons and armour if our society is so adapted for war, everyone has laser eyes? That's what improving military will get us right?

    Unfortunately, nobody thinks of the real victims in this continental battle. Poor skull island has been to so many custody hearings he's beginning to lose it.
    Why do you think he dresses up like a skull anyway? It's his only way of expressing his pain.

    Hello yes I have returned and I like the name Tengu for the meaning and us being a multi-race group of avians.

    I agree on moving to Food and working on gathering resources.

    Magic will help us with more things, when we discover other things to fight we should focus on military and things, but we need to work on economy.

  • RetabaRetaba A Cultist Registered User regular
    Also, the colors you say the resources and things are really arn't? They all look the same color. Is it because you just used the same pen or the camera?

    im safe saying this here though, because there's literally no chance those guys will ever come over here, or you will go over there
