Could I be human'd as the Warrior you hired? Failing that, I'd like a Trader/Bureaucratish person.

We actually had merfolk on the map... merman and mermaidens. :)

But since no one can really fight in water, dive, pathfind, or build a boat, I dont think that a hero sharkhunter would make any sense.

Sure Arcvasti, you can have the warrior.

Tikbo and Tob put together sound like a bad sketch comedy duo.

OOC:
Arcvasti, you have been named as the warrior.
Jaso, you have been named. We had a kid that did grow up to be a Engineers Guild member. No skills yet, but its the most fitting so far.


This means everyone has been named. Lots of free humans, too.

Edit: Thats it for today. Style ok? More text? More pictures? More tutorial, or rather more story? I think I will finish the second year as well, and upload the save then.

CyberTripping, a seven year old girl that is already member of the carpenters guild.
She is married to Gosath Splattercalmed.  She is the daughter of Ocgi Gearkingly and Siga Tattootusk. 


Well then. Also, holy postrate batman, so much activity.

I'm perfectly fine with the style as is, very nice balance. Maybe a bit more story, since it's always nice, but with the mod being as complex as it is and needing descritpion, that could be detrimental.

We killed a few coyotes, echidnas and other critters. Two kobold thieves came and ran away. Thats it. Half of the wildlife appears on the ocean, out of reach, and since the calender speed is slow, I had twice as much time in the first year. Thats why there were no attacks yet, its just summer second year now.

Part 16 - Religion

With so many new migrants, several of them are idle. I simply do not have the repetitive tasks like farmplots or mining/crafting to sustain such a workforce, so I split them up into military, mason crews and priests. (I enabled praying labor, nothing more)

Humans can build altars, and consecrate them to their gods. The worker will determine who that will be, so if you send an ardent worshipper of Tob, it will be Tobs altar. If the worker has no gods? It wont work.



I build a line of ~10 altars on the beachfront. I think wet sand and peat will be perfect for Tob, God of Muck. But when the option arose, I also consecrated altars to the other gods, so we do get a wild mix of rewards from them. Hopefully. If we pray enough. Now, all out atheistic friends out there ask themselves: But how do you pray? What do you do at an altar?



You can harvest souls of corpses. Wow, that came out worse than I imagined. Lets phrase it that way: If you have a lot of clutter on your map from dead goblins, kobolds and the like, bring them near the altar and free their souls, give them over to the loving caress of muck. Ehm, god. It will transform their bodies and leaves only souls. These wither away after time, so even if you dont want to use them for anything, its still great for cleanup on isle god.

You can use the souls for blessings which affect the entire fort for a month, or trade them away to succubi or warlocks, or give them to the elves, which use them for treesinging. Anyway, I digress. You can of course pray at the altar, or leave an offering of items. Offerings will increase your merit faster than praying, but of course they cost you items. Praying is for free. If you have some dedicated priests praying at the altars full time you should be fine.

Once you have some merit, the gods will work in their mysterious ways. Now... no one really knows what exactly they do. And even if they do something, there might be no feedback that it was actually gods way. When they smack down an invader with their might, yes, you will noticed. But most of the godlike interventions are subtle. Who really knows what a God of Muck will do?

Lets find out.

Hail Tob.

`Augster' Quihu has been happy lately.  He has been satisfied at work lately.  He slept in a very good bedroom recently.  He talked with the spouse lately.  He admired a fine Trap lately.  He admired own fine Cabinet lately.  He was caught in the rain recently. 
He is married to Edin Escortedmazes and has 4 children:  Edin Showcuddles, Atek Socialmouths, Sinur Meteorbowels and Rakbin Destinypots.  He is the son of Mapo Goosepaddle and Ivak Tealoutraged. 
He is a citizen of The Smiling Nation.  He is a member of The Cotton Bands.  He is a former member of The Council of Moistening.  He is a former member of The Organized Society.  He is the former sergeant of The Cotton Bands.  He arrived at Enercuro on the 25th of Sandstone in the year 101. 
He is twenty-four years old, born on the 18th of Slate in the year 78. 
He is very skinny.  His eyes are sepia.  His quite dense hair is extremely long.  His teeth are gapped.  His head is short.  His lips are very thin.  His small-lobed ears are somewhat short.  His hair is ecru.  His skin is pale chestnut. 
He is quite quick to heal and very rarely sick, but he is quite clumsy and very flimsy. 
`Augster' Quihu likes dark grey brick, ashland glass, ***FOSSILS***, trap spider silk, portals, quivers, donkeys for their sure-footed stance, osprey men for their fishing ability and boreal tubers for their indigo skins.  When possible, he prefers to consume mead and icicle mint oil.  He absolutely detests albino forest leeches. 
He has a great sense of empathy, a great feel for the surrounding space and a very good feel for social relationships, but he has a meager kinesthetic sense, little willpower and little linguistic ability. 
He only rarely feels strong cravings or urges.  He doesn't handle stress well.  He is candid and sincere in dealings with others.  He is confident.  He is organized.  He exhales slowly and deliberately when he starts getting bored.  He likes working outdoors and grumbles only mildly at inclement weather. 

A medium-sized creature prone to great ambition. The folk of men is a great one. They build mighty cities and roads, fortresses and castles. Having an intrepid mind they invented firearms and trade muskets or pistols, even handcannons. Be sure to stay on their side, otherwise a guard squadron will be sent to punish you for your crimes against the empire.
