A Helm cost wood? Or... right, I need wood to heat the forge. Because ya'll are mass producing shields :|

Ok... well I was gonna make myself a helm but I guess that's not gonna happen. I'll Equip that spare shield, putting my shovel on my back for safe keeping.

Equip shield, Move N, Move N, Stack up and lead the attack on the Otisbits

LTDave, it looks like you haven't updated the SE hex image fully. Most importantly, how many of those beasts remain alive?

(Oh, and what did it take to turn their hides into armor?)

M16 and M17 stack with anyone heading north before heading north and entering combat!
M5 will finish the shield he started before making 2 spears.

Does the saw give any sort of combat bonuses? Can I try and saw through the Otisbits?

Cheers

Unfortunately it wasn't but somehow the results aren't affected much

Somehow M14 "Cook" in the NE hex managed to get "dig ore" and "create saw" orders even though he's only got a sickle ( his actual orders were Harvest mushroom x4). With those orders he apparently created a saw in the home hex and used wood in the home hex even though he's in the NE hex.
Luckily M18 "Smithy" duplicated those orders but was unable to carry them out, presumably because M14 had used the wood previously.
The main result is that there should be less ore in the home hex and more food in the NE hex

Ok - well I'll set aside some time tomorrow to fix things up and process the next turn - call it 10 hours from now.

Get those orders in.

And how are we coming with those runes?

The issue is spacing. If I knew the proper spacing that would make it a lot easier. All clumped together, by deciphering skills are stagnated.

Well, I hate to stymie my players because the runes are unclear.

The red lines here represent the spaces between the words.

Extra Clue: the top left hand symbol is "e".

Based on LTDave's hint, I think the runes are written backwards. "The" should be the most common word, and the ":\\//" pattern starts with "E".

Hmm.. initial analysis suggests that there a mention of butter bear in there...and the message might be backwards.
I'll know more when I've time to analyse it properly.

Know ye that searcheth here the helm of destiny doth lie where the butter bear do roam twixt the toadstool of Ill_ame

Tah - Dah !
My best guess for the missing letter is "F" ;)


Heh...and where am I ? :o :shock: :lol:

Guess what my next orders are ?

Cook ! prepare for guests ! :lol:

Sorry, thought I already posted.

Cook (M14): harvest mushroom, build barrel (or harvest if there is no wood), harvest mushroom, brew OtisBrau in barrel with mushroom.

Pssst..cookie.... given the translation of the placename, I don't think I'll have any of that brew... thanks all the same. :twisted: :lol:

Might pass on those scumptious looking rations you've just prepared too ;)

I don't think the decoding is correct. What's this nonsense about "butter bears"?
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

No idea...but I know where some Otisbears and Otishrooms are...maybe they're connected ;)

Hm... You know, now that things are getting more organized in the main hex, and what with the overpopulation (temporarily) relieved, I wonder if it'll be time for me to return to society soon. Would anyone be willing to make me a helm and/or metal shield?


M20 "Isocates" - Chop Wood, Chop Wood, Equip Leather Armor, Attack "Otisneck";
M21 "Iolol" (not "lolol" :lol: ) - Finish Spear, Craft Leather Armor (2), Craft Box (or a wagon, or backpack, or whatever would let me carry large quantities of supplies between hexes).


Hm... Tigerus, don't bother harvesting that bush more than once (with M25) this turn; we've got plenty of food. Oh, and I give you permission to take M21's knife if you need it for crafting (as long as you take it after he finishes that spear). Oh, and feel free to use the pelt of this latest 'neck to make armor for M2 if you wish. (As our best fighter he deserves better equipment).

Message Reads: "
Twixt the toadstool of ?llfame
Where the butter bear do roam
The helm of destiny doth lie
Know ye that sear?teth here"

the last line is a little garbled, if someone can figure it out better. When I look at the runes, and assign that big word in the middle of the last line letters, reverse it and translate it I get "sear?teth"

T is the only one I haven't figured out
