I ended up with a discovery of layered camp sites patched into each other vertically on top of being able to dupe the same patch of land.

I guess if a site I'm copying over is higher than the site I'm copying will just paste over the underground sections
after discovering this I went back and added a pick adv reaction so I can just easily dig into the underground, and now wondering if the perfect Necro-camp is building on an terrifying biome to get access to husk weather effects then moving to a necrotower to copy the site and grab the necromancers who will over time spawn in undead zombies.

Like some kind of floating Warcraft necropolis?

My adventurer is currently a nigh unkillable vampire necromancer. I waited until my important attributes were mostly superhuman (spatial sense, kinesthetic sense, strength, agility, endurance, toughness, focus, willpower) until I became a vampire and read the necromancer slab. My punches can gore limbs and open arteries. My swordman skill has been legendary for a while, and I'm working on hammerman so I can conquer a vault. So far, my armor is all bronze. I have been trying to find a steel long sword, but it appears that the dwarves in my world are addicted to short swords. I have around 5 artifact earrings and and artifact shield as well. I've gotten my hands on a *superior* iron long sword, so I've been walking through hydras and other forgotten beasts with the help of my flesh-sack army (living companions that I then resurrect after they die). For some reason titans are always the hardest because they make me bleed when they hit me with fireballs.

uhh realize I can store companions on to the camp by just disbanding them, which means I can set them to zones before disbandment and possibly store units in spots and organize them... probably see if I can get those undead to one spot, but this means the necromancers around the camp can be safely moved to a spot where they don't get mauled or murdered, also all those who aren't undead.

and since this camp seem to have 2 underground camp pockets I could just store folks there maybe make it a zoo or prison.

Didnt find that artifact in the cave loot pile. Thought id slip away while i had the chance but instead got chased down by the tamed giant cave spiders (who were slaughtering all the resident animal people too.) They bit me, and i made it all the way to the hatchery where i suffocated on a pile od peregrine falcon woman eggs. So that was a short adventure!


I generated a new world for some new adventures, and its been entertaining so far. I started out a gnoll peasant named Aru Ombaisun (Riverbasis) in a dead civ where the only option was a single hamlet controlled by a bandit gang. More like a small army. There are 85 or so residents and theyre all bandits. They couldnt tell me shit about whats going on in the world and there was "no room" (obviously!) for me to join the gang myself. Although presumably ive lived there my entire life and theres nothing there but the gang so... Makes sense dont it?

Went to the hamlet next door; its run by elves, the administrator and one guard are the only people in the keep. So i spend a night there and the next morning theres a huge fight. Apparently a bandit axeman from one of over a dozen nearby bandit gangs, maybe even my hometown, dropped in and decided to start hackimg away at the elves and has just about killed them. So i intervene, and after a lengthy fight i finally disarm him, put him on the ground, and finally kill him. I decide its too dangerous to be on the side of the law in bandit country and immediately head north; the administrator had told me about a den where a wild ape woman made its home. I drop in and catch her by surprise, slit her throat and after some more fighting she bleeds to death. She was holding four artifacts: a bronze crossbow, a rutile ring, a chert mug, and a musical instrument. I take them all and head towards yet another lair and get lucky there too.

This lair contains another night creature's spouse, this time a randomly generated one, who possesses some really fancy artifact troll fur pants. After a long fight i relieve him of his pants, but dont put them on before another spouse enters the room and attacks me. Another long drawn out fight and hes lying in a pool of blood. These guys and their parrying skills, man. All they have is copper kitchen utensils, but it takes forever to disarm them, or hit them at all, due to the parrying.

So i finally get my pants on, and head over to the dwarven hillocks next door, where the drunks are smitten with not only my fancy pants and ring (i hid everything else in my backpack) but also my killing three terrible night creatures and a bandit, as well as telling it all like a big story instead of just reciting rumors. When i finally find the militia commander, purportedly fhe only dwarf in town who can tell me where to find distant megabeasts, i learn the mayor is looking for that mug i pilfered. So i go back to her and trade her this mug in return for all of her clothing, which is a great deal apparently, and shes very grateful to finally possess the stationery of her office. Sans the pants, of course. But i asked for the clothes for shits and giggles, so i toss it all on the floor.

Then we start talking about other missing treasures. Theres this guy named sibrek in Mythseal a days travel north, through the mountains, who wants pretty much every artifact in the world, it seems. Two are apparently lost in the wilderness, no hope there. Theres one ettin in The Heart of Infamy, a nearby cave, who possesses one, and... at least three separate ettins, and over a dozen artifacts, in a cave further north by the name of Chillheart the Epidemic of Metals, another cave.

So i guess thats where im going. Sibrek is mad if he thinks hes getting all of these artifacts, theres at least one silver short sword and silver mace among them, and damn right im claiming a finders fee.

Still riding in minecart around all the tunnels of both dwarven civs crammed into one mountain range. Noticed one more thing: web doesn't affect you when you're in minecart. You can even pick it up when you're occupying the same tile, in a fly. Got to test it for the dwarf mode somehow: dwarven minecart marksdwarf cavalry vs GCS. or some web weaving FB even better, not to waste perfectly good GCSs.

oh good another person figured out the minecart-fu of Pushing away whiled webbed in a minecart. you could just set up a minecart launcher

in other news this happen to me recently:
"oh wait I'm being attacked by night trolls huh?"

"wait these aren't night trolls, bogeybandits"

"oh Axe wielding Bogeybandits."


so now I learn of the other side of the coin of making civil bogeymen they can and will join bandit groups and having to fight bogeymen out of the cackling with armor and weapons.

I'd def keep the dense heavy mace and give him that dull sword :D I mean the silver short sword is an abomination only matched by a silver spear.

oh that simple the town that bandit came from had domesticated demons and spider-folk and dwarves and goblins
a modification of entity raws using the animal tokens. doing this unlock playable RNG demons and bogeymen and civilian of those kinds as it also gave me bogeyman and demon bandits... oh yeah I scanned the encounter a bit and notice there was a demon bandit in the group so uhh yeah that's something to worry about later.

Can you not become a necromancer if you are already a vampire?  My current adventurer has read the slab that gives the text "the secrets to life and death" but I don't gain the ability to raise the dead.

Are you like an elf or something? Vampire necromancers are super common but you have to be a mortal race to be a necromancer.

That would explain it then, yeah she is an elf.  Oh well, I guess shes still pretty much unkillable at this point being legendary in quite a few combat skills and a vampire with superior stats.  Thanks for the help.

Swaddled in wool from dwarves who died during a fortress insurrection, Imush's eastward travel has been over mountain range to a third fortress: Criedabbeys.

In its library, Imush reads up on 7 varying topics that may be of interest to any traveling archer wanting to know how to navigate the wilds: a book about sundials, then wind, rainfall, star charts, animal migration, maps and lastly climate zones. Since there is introspective need, he keeps Exploration of Wind Patterns and Discovering Rainfall and Rivers for company on his travels. They each weigh <1r. Managing encumbrance toward 1.000 walking speed is a concern for slow travel runs, as higher encumbrance is a time eater.

In mapping out future NPC encounters, hunting requires arrows for bleed outs with wrestling/strangling for finishes; this is covered. Potentially unavoidable non-hunting combats will (mostly RP-wise) require an edged with enough contact area to cleave, or with armored units, a focused percussive blunt. Imush visits the trade depot to see what they have. Nothing. He decides to visit the warehouse level as the goods offered will differ.

Foot traffic around the spiral ramp is high, so Imush waits an hour, offloading the site which clears the way downward. At warehouse level, he picks up a sword and a large dagger, both made from iron, along with a copper war hammer. Handling any fort-owned item will strip its ownership tags unfortunately, but as there's no way to trade for warehouse items, this mess kinda/sorta works itself out.

Once he's resurfaced at depot level he gives the broker roughly equivalent exchange: his starting copper (spear & dagger) along with an iron mail hood and an iron knife.

As this taiga is the uppermost region of the world, Imush begins filling out the map with talks about surrounding area. North are night troll lairs. Southeast are forest retreats. Imush returns west at run speed 1.808 over the mountains to visit the last two visible fortresses. There he might swap copper blunt for silver and maybe acquire either a textile garment defense and go Green Knight medieval, or the right leather and go rangery D&D. Then perhaps it's time to head south hoping for human lands.

currently using this transporting camp as an ambush trap for bandits and watching them get mauled by zombie camels, don't know if the biome has any reanimating properties or that's it just spawns zombie critters. hopefully one day I will find a husk emitting area to build a camp on then roam the lands building an husk army.
