theres really not much for me to do so i guess
same as last time

and you decided you'd rather be a Dwarf Fortress reference instead.
yeah i thought my stats would stay the same through transformations.
and isn't being a dwarf fortress reference a noble cause along with eating dwarves.

Well ok, it didn't do much last time but if you really want to... ((You still haven't eaten any dwarves tho, maybe you should've waited until after you got summoned to transform))
ME: turn as much of the moon as i can into carp
100 cultists: get submarine parts, the things that drive underwater.
50 cultists : continue campaign for mayor of Tijuana make my policy eradicating all mosquito's (except not in Australia that's the only place animals rely on them)[b\]
you might have missed this not sure
Fuck you moon! [3] You transform someone's model of the moon into a carp. It flops around and dies.
Sub: [3] They find more sandwich supplies! They could technically dive underwater if the water was soup. Maybe they are trying to tell you something about the catering at the cult meetups... (acquired submarine sandwich parts)
Campaign: [1] Your campaigners accidentally brand you as someone who is going to introduce a mosquito problem to the region instead of fix it. They need better translators. Or brains, better brains would work too. (now a long shot candidate)

PR: [6] They make a grand display of how amazing you are, but their pyrotechnics set the nearby buildings on fire! You get blamed, naturally. (moderately good PR)
We really need to introduce some occupational health and safety policies, it seems.

Recruit: [4] You and your cultists successfully draw many new recruits with your rendition of "fly me to the moon". Don't think too hard about how a flying monolith can sing. You finally have enough people to perform the summoning! (+575 cultists)
Actually, Koshu explicitly can sing. Just... telepathically. And with mind control as a side effect.
Abilities:
- Telepathy, the Song of Its Soul: How it communicates, lacking any mouth to speak or ears to hear. The weak-minded can only sing along to its tune, though.
Also, I already had enough for the summoning, I think. It only requires 500 cultists (and dragons blood), and I had 615, right?

Guard: [2] They switch shifts but nobody else joins the guarding.

Inquisitors: Siege better!
[6] They pelt your base gathering field with rocks and logs. They have some success, especially with so many people packed together, but they overwork their siege engines, breaking them. (-50 cultists, siege engines destroyed)
Sigh. At least our inquisitors are not all that competent either.

Dwarf Fortress: where an exploding unicorn death factory is a goal unto itself.
If it has cute cuddly features, it's probably safe to eat, so do not reason with it either.

Guess that explains why they joined you... And now you can use them without losing 80% of your workforce :P

Just so you know, you're never going to actually turn the moon into fish... Though the rest of your turn is fine you may want to change that...

Depends how big it is, if it's small enough sure, then it will get cooked in the atmosphere and he'll have a delicious grilled carp for his favorite follower... If it's small enough for him to transform tho, it's probably so small it wouldn't be a problem anyway...

btw, I believe we're waiting for Rabe before finishing the turn...

Me: go for a swim and mellow out
Evrybody: remove water in such away that it splashes all over you.

Swim: [5-6] You manage to get through your maddening haze enough to dive into the water in your base. You nearly drown and one of your paws gets crushed by a floating piece of debris, and you now have a fear of water, but at least your hallucinations are clearing up (no longer hallucinating, moderately injured, now afraid of water)
Clear flooding: [1-no roll] They can't understand your babbling, so they just watch the pretty colors in their heads for the whole turn.

Miskatonic university: research the power store ritual without those documents!
[6] They figure out the power store ritual, but it draws unwanted attention from things unknown. The ritual requires a ball of material related to the power of the horror, a bit of shoe polish, and a living horror (ideally, but not necessarily one who will cooperate). The power can then be channeled by any psychically capable being, and will use the channeler's stats with the abilities, or be used to create artificial chosen with the stored abilities. (power store ritual learned {requires shoe polish and horror, consumes orb}, Something's coming to get you)

Kitten Industries: ACTIVATE THE DEATH ROBOT!
[2] Whoops, forgot the keys.

Inquisitors: Get gasoline
[4] They buy some canisters of gasoline, nothing too remarkable happens (gasoline acquired)

Presidnet: Make PR badder ((close enough))
[1] He accidentally brings the wrong script and praises you for things you haven't done rather than blaming you for things you have (mixed PR)

Next turn actions:

Infiltrator cultists: activate the death bot and use it against Rabe!
Everybody else: research a ritual to draw a dead horror's mind into a living horror's body. Wealthy ones fund it, politicians pull up public support, everybody else does grunt research.
Puff Puff: Snipe Rabe with magic powder.
