Let's name ourselves Kudzu, for poetry's sake.

And no, Brok's remains go in the bin, where they shall languish until they are taken to a landfill in New Mexico. There they shall properly mature for a while.

Then after, say, a year has passed, absorb these more palatable remains.

And then, hell, do whatever! But break the Orbs of Stalwart beforehand, just to be safe.

Whatever remains of keeper's consciousness concurs with this

Kudzu it shall be, and the cultists burn Brok's remains to ensure he doesn't have some kind of resurrection ability (he doesn't, but they are being paranoid).

Alas, you don't get to tell Kudzu exactly what to do, he is his own abomination and will walk the Earth doing as he sees fit with his mighty strength and moderate psionic power. He eats the ashes and gains much higher power, enough to rip entire lands asunder. Will he use this for good or evil? Only time will tell.

[6] The cultists find the remaining orbs and smash them, since they know that's what you would've wanted. Some of them get hurt by the orbs rolling around, but they manage to get medical treatment.

Final results: Kudzu has become a sort of new leader and symbol of hope for many cultists. While he does cause some trouble, such as knocking over a building or killing some people who used to be inquisitors for his various components. Mostly however, he simply wanders and uses his powers of necrokinesis, knowledge weaving, and Earth shaping to help those around him.

Keepers followers continue working to advance science and knowledge of humanity, leading to a new era of enlightenment in the ways of the eldritch. His Chosen manage to maintain his power through their bloodlines and eventually create their own school, "Keeper's school of knowledge and necromancy". Time is taken to repair the Great library and over time integrate the knowledge within into other places. The wealth of this information within brings even more progress to this age of learning.

Big Dog's followers become extremely successful in getting people's favor and pull people toward more research. Though the market for Big Dog merchandise is limited, many new products become available based on Big Dog's tissues and genes, and eventually a cloning project successfully makes a new strange singing plant. It finds its new home in "The Little shop of Horrors," as the store is named. His few inquisitors spend a lot of time badmouthing him, but mostly go ignored.

Brok, though his influence is gone from the world, lives on in memory. A successful movie franchise springs from tales of his rampage and his power. Coming this spring, it's "Brok the mighty and the land of broken limbs". His inquisitors occasionally meet up to talk about how much they love giving to charity and helping the less fortunate.

End of Game 1.

Yep, I just now figured out how to change the title of the thread, so hopefully we'll get more than 3 participants this time :)

Yeah, you can have a 30 foot tall guy made of tissue paper if you want, just like Big Dog was a dandelion strong enough to lift a battleship...

Turn 1:
[5] Nightmare screams into the ears of humanity and drives them to do her bidding. Few are willing, but many are compelled (+100 cultists).

[2] Carl Yelvin has a bit of trouble getting the psychic link to the human world connected. Please try again later.

End of turn 1
Score:
Nightmare - 100 cultists

If I could, I would abstain from the use of such...counter-productive pawns entirely. But one needs to be summoned to be at full power, regrettably.

Try again to gain followers, this time aimed at people who...aren't necessarily in the right state of mind. I need bodies, not souls; this might be easier than converting sane people.

EDIT: Intentionally misspelled name? What intentionally misspelled name?

Ah, I see that these weaklings may yet accept the beauty of the Night.

Continue trying to recruit cultists from people like clubbers, those who stay up late.

Cultists: 25 - Keep tabs on the cultists of the Mad Matron and their activities
                75 - Establish a base in a cave system of some sort.

((I've been calling him plauge doctor because I think it's funnier than plague doctor, if you want me to stop just say so))
[6] In your attempt to find madness you create it yourself, driving those you manage to contact mad. They will still do what you want, but they may be a bit unreliable. Also, some people start investigating what's driving people mad (+50 mad cultists, +10 inquisitors).

Continue whispering in the ears of humans.
Cultists: Search for the artifacts.

[6] You manage to get some people to join you, but as it turns out not everyone wants their childhood fears reawakened. What a bunch of jerks (+50 cultsists, +20 inquisitors)

[6] They successfully locate one of the Orbs of Stalwart, but the elusive dragon flower remains hidden. Several cultists get lost in the forest and never return (Orb of Stalwart 1 found, -25 cultists).

[4] You get several ravers to join your merry band of madness. They love the idea of eternal night, partying forever! (yeah, they don't have much foresight) (+50 cultists)

[5] They keep a keen eye on Momthulhu's cultists and jot down the location of the Orb of Stalwart they found (+location of Orb of Stalwart 1)

[6] They find a cave system with plenty of space for your great horsiness... unfortunately it has bears living in it. They still get the base set up after driving them away though (-35 cultists, cave base built).

[6] You convert many nerds to your cause. They think the minor tricks you can pull from the land of fables are awesome. The local jocks are less impressed (+100 cultists, +35 inquisitors).

End turn 2.

Nightmare - 115 cultists, access to Orb of Stalwart 1, cave base
Carl Yelvin - 100 cultists, 35 inquisitors
