    Haven't you got an apathetic guy on the books somewhere after the KD Olympics a few events back? A write off like that is prime monster material.

    I'll go ahead and specialize since Valen will likely be dead soon. Fist and Tooth seems fun and standing up for free sounds good.
    Edit: Or should I wait and see if he survives and then pick something that works with Ambidextrous?

    I've got Mamou and Freyja listed as injured, but beyond that anyone alive is whole (afaik).

    Freya missed out on the hunt due to injury, does she also miss the aftermath?

    I’m just curious, and really not volunteering her for hunter >_<

    This seems unimaginably stupid. There are what 10 humans left in the known world, lets do a hunt recreation. But it has to be so real that there is only a 30% chance of both parties surviving. Uh?

    Well, I mean, y'all aren't exactly trained stuntmen / women ... "So then, I took the ROCK, and I stabbed the lion like this! Oh, oh, no, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to ... Shit."

    I mean neither are any of the actors at any of the high school plays I've seen but no one died on stage.

    just to clarify, is the lion a 'quarry' monster?

    Also make sure the two nomines are men. we cant afford to lose any women to these events.

    I say give it to any male unused characters if we have any.

    dunno if the OP link to the google page is up to date, but looks like nolan and valen are the two with the least to lose.

    Mamoru wasn't so much "injured" as much as he just fucked up on the debate stage of the Olympics, so he was forced to sit out a year. Otherwise, he's actually one of our healthiest members with a +1 STR and Courage and no drawbacks.

    If I knew for sure that we'd roll a 1-3 on the event, I'd actually nominate to be the monster for the fighting art bonus.

    I tried to Google this and I think it came back that the Lion is a quarry animal. So a 30% chance of no death.

  • Jam WarriorJam Warrior Registered User regular
    Anything that isn’t a Nemesis is a Quarry. So currently Quarry is all you know. Your rough education on the nature of the Nemesis gets ever closer...

    Feh, we can wipe ourselves out well before any nemesis get here.

    I really really hope that one of the things we can learn involves giving bonuses on a die during these horrible settlement events. Preferably after rolling it...

    Yeah, if we don't want to risk a female, then we're risking 1 XP from Nolan or Valen. Less than half our surviving pop is female right now.

  • El FantasticoEl Fantastico Toronto, ONRegistered User regular
    We're a masochist community of survivors.

    We hold Death Olympics one year and banish a dude.
    We re-enact a monster fight another year, potentially with bad props.
    Next year... heh.

    I guess when we all die we can take consolation in the fact that we have a very active theater community.

    Nolan and Valen step up please.
    Name your role and here are your props.
    1 spear and 1 claw.

    Make it a show to die for.

    Now coming to the stage is Geth, who hates all living things and is on a personal crusade to rid the world of everything organic! I'm sure what follows will be totally fair and impartial!

    Look, that is exactly why I’m not willing to put my hand on the Geth Button for this. I want someone else to feel the guilt of Valen’s death.

    Who was the designated dying player again? Time to rack up the high score.

    38thDoe, but their current character is female, and we really can't risk losing more of them, yet.

    If they want to raise the curtain and have Geth roll the outcome though, this could be entertaining.

    Steve works feverishly backstage to ensure Valen's costume captures the true majesty of a white lion.

    He attaches the Strange Hand to Valen's back just as a further sorrowful reminder of what it is the survivors have had to do

    Elodie paces back and forth behind stage. "Why do I have to be in charge of this? What? No I only wanted to study decoration, all Freya would teach me was how to eviscerate something. I'm sure the play will go fine. Evisceration for all. Wait not that."

    Geth roll 1d10 for Disembowelment, Part One of the Self Destruction Cycle

    Test: Decoration ⇨ Success


    Elodie's expert direction and prop placement results in a play real enough to inspire, but not real enough to maim. Freya stomps away shaking her head at these young whippersnappers and their new "surviving through a settlement year ideas". Still everyone is inspired and more importantly alive.

    I half wanted Valen to get the Monster fighting style.
    Seems good with unarmed specialisation.
    But yeah, we need survivors more I think.

    Ophelia looks around the splash zone, then sheepishly puts away the Kingdom Death branded poncho before getting back to work at the cat gut mines.

    Two +1 insanity bonuses

    Quoting @MrBody for resources in the settlement. we also have a piece of scrap from last year if I remember right.

    looking over the resources, it is doable to do an Innovate and get the weapon crafter -or- the leather worker.
    the weapon crafter has an endeavor spending slot that lets us try to gain courage in the settlement... which means we are not beholden to auguries if we can get someone with 2 courage now another one and getting matchmaker courage milestone. as well as having much more killy weapons next year.

    the leather worker gives us access to leather armor and the leather shield (which lets us block 1 attack outright) which is good for our tank.

    we did so well this go around, I think it might be worth reaching for the stars and springboarding a new crafting site.
    I'll put forth more of an argument at some point tomorrow, but i'm tired, going to bed.

    But how do we get more babies :/

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    We can only get kids if we roll 8+ on augury. Not a bad idea to shoot for this year.

    But I do want to get weapon crafter, which has an always open option to try for courage, and scrap.

    If you hit 3 courage in the settlement, you get matchmaker, which lets you pair a couple off for the deed.

    If you hit 3 courage on the hunt, you get a garbage ability. If you hit 3 courage in a showdown, you get stalwart, which means you dont get knocked down from brain damage or intimidation attacks.

    I think the weapon crafter is 3 bone 1 hide, so, with that plus innovate, we'd either need to consume the cat eye or all the lion claws, so we'd need to decide between crafting either another bracelet or another katar (for twinning) (or not crafting cat stuff). Depending on how we spend the ???.
