    We can manufacture wands with control undead enchantment. Most of us wouldn’t bother through, as machines are far superior to undead. 🙂

    most of us wouldn’t bother to train a kobold to champion either, but you got to do what you got to do.

    And it will be glorious!

    And it will be glorious!

    yes it will, I will order a company to make a wall scroll of that kobold, and send it to the triumph office. So that you guys can put it up against the wall in all the glory the kobold deserves! (I start he army Saturday, expect to have the kobold up and running the same day, shipment from the US usually takes a week, so I anticipate the arrival of the wall scroll in about 2/3 weeks)

    Last day Last chance to join the army of the forum in their crusade to never-ending glory. tomorrow I will start the conquest and collect all necessary conscripts so today is the last day you can make a change to your already existing character or join in and volunteer a unit for endless glory.

    #223053

    I have made a promise and now it is time for feedback Lords and rulers.

    last Saturday I spent about 5 hours to start arranging the startup of the army of the forum, starting with a human theocrat I got a party of 4 horseman and 1 swordsman at my disposal (never started with that amount of calvary…) those 4 horseman are still alive at this date and are champion 1/4 knights, still riding with the leader. but this is a small detail.

    ill give you a small slideshow to enjoy on this dark Monday morning.

    The first unit joined, the sorcerer gunner for Lord Nerdfish

    The first conscript was very quick to offer his service, this sorcerer joined me after the first few turns and is stationed in one of the more rural areas until the other members of his brigade are ready. I equipped him with a specially made gun, Nerdfish gun (give fire musket) and head Nerdfish Cowl (giving seeker arrow). up until now as requested he has the shock damage upgrade and ranged strength.

    Human crusader

    Next up is the Human crusader for Lord SaintTodd, I produced a few crusaders and pinched them against every quest I got from the surrounding villages, for some particular reason al those quest where “roaming undeads wreaking about” making the crusade fighting the archon revants for quite some time, the sole survivor of those battles has joined in the name of Lord SaintTodd and is stationed next to the imperial capital.

    the sad story of the kobold The sad story of the kobold

    So now we got the next conscript, the Gold medaled kobold for Lord Narvek, seduced by the charm of the emperor of the AOTF (the leader got seduce, control undead and convert), he looked as an promising candidate for becoming the Kobold of legends. (small side note the draconian down there is the fire rogue from the fire rogue event, he’s also was persuaded to support our army)

    Graveyard of the damned

    As you can see here, the first battle that followed made a quick ending for this kobold, he died valiantly as every kobold should, being shot in the back by some flamers.

    Second chance

    I wouldn’t be the well known evil genius if I didn’t learn from my mistakes, so instead of one kobold I decided that those 2 kobold should be the hero’s of legends, song about in lands far far away. they departed to the capital to be trained in the ways of the overlord, so that they would be powerful enough to withstand even a dragon.

    kolbolds are hard to keep alive

    Yes people this is the pain of a overlord, they have been slaughtered (together with their pet Boar) by a group of brigands, whom don’t respect the holy sake of our beautiful army! so the search for a worthy group of kobolds continue, I hope we can find them before it is to late.

    The matriarch is finished and running around now

    We got some good news though for Lord SiaFu, the Naga Matriarch has been created and is running around converting goblins hellhounds and other critters to join her brigade, once she is finished (she is gold by now and is throwing lighting around) I will make a screenshot of her complete band of thugs.

    last but not least

    we got the Feathered serpent for Lord Ifoso left, the palace has been cleared without a loss by the leader and his knight party. the serpent is now chilling next to his palace waiting for the other conscripts to join up.

    not on screencap but still worth mentioning, we got a yeti (Lord Seamus the Bold) who I got for clearing a dungeon and the knight (Lord Cameron) from a city quest.

    also there is a group of evelist hunting in the underground for a vampire spider queen whom has slaughtered several scouts and soldiers down in the underground. also I have a group of evangelists running around searching for a gobbling skewer and a dedicated group of units who are going to search the kolbold, escort him to pillars and make him gold!

    if you have any questions about the progress of your unit then I will be happy to answer your question.

    Evangelists won’t get the Vampire Spider Queen – Animals are immune to Convert. Charm(Naga Matriarch) or Seduce(Leader) would work though.

    Well they are not going to turn back Lord Gloweye so they will be slaughtered, that mean that the leader with his knight army have to traverse the underground and face the relentless horror.

    Poor Kobolds, they were obviously not The One, R.I.P. 😉

    You need sacrifices to create a legend Lord Narvek. The next kobold is going to have an army escorting him so that he got an increased chance of survival, I keep you updated about the process, and give you an end score how many kobolds it cost to create a legend.

    I am not sure if it is too late (my bad). I would like to see a goblin exalted in your next division Great Overlord Darkslash

    You are actually to late Lord GeorgiSR, the deadline was last Friday, still I wouldn’t be the magnificent Overlord Darkslash if I didn’t accept your request, so your goblin exalted will join the 4th division.

    This is probably the best idea anyone here came up with.
    Can Bursum kill knights in one shot yet ? 😀

    #223109

    Until my mind brings the next masterpiece to this world Lord Nerdfish.

    Can Bursum kill knights in one shot yet ?

    Well how can I explain this? he didn’t really had any combat yet, I try to keep the units I already gathered out of combat to keep this a bit more simple to manage, and keep my oversight for my administration. still I have a good feeling about his ranged powers, after the shock upgrade he keeps getting the ranged damage whenever he levels up, also I hope to get the shield quiver thing that increase his ranged damage, combined with his seeker on the helmet and maybe I can find some item that grant him armor piercing or any slaying ability, and he will be a force to recommend with. (until he gets hit that is)

    Lord SaintTodd, the death of their brothers in arms only strengthen their resolve, how can they life a passive and careless life if the world take away so many just and honorable comrades?!

    Thank you. You don’t have to create a whole army. It would be enough not to disband units she charms and keep them as meat shields. But since she’s already calling lightning I don’t think I have to worry about her life expectancy.

    Great job on the action report, can’t wait to read more.

    My fav. unit is the Troll. Regrow is so nice when you have a certrain gold level reached.

    she is already chosen to get a whole stack, so a stack she will get. Lord SiaFu.

    Great job on the action report, can’t wait to read more.

    Next Sunday I have some time again to do some more turns in that game, so next Monday will be the second report.

    My fav. unit is the Troll. Regrow is so nice when you have a certrain gold level reached.

    So you think you can barge intro an already going “game” and I will just add a troll to the roster? making the gathering even harder because most trolls are already slaughtered, you think it work like that Lord Rabenschwarz?

    of course it work like that I love to make it even harder!, but the troll will be the first unit in the newest division (6) so if there are not sufficient other persons he will be alone. the lonely troll of division six

    🙂 You dont have to tame one right now. Maybe the next game.

    #223399

    What? no unacceptable!

    I am not a common human being that give up because it goes not as planned. I will tame a troll and add it under your name to the 6th division, if there is not a single troll left I will go in the prostitution please allot of goblins with my godly present and get one via the racial governance.

    as long as it is not completely impossible I will fix it.

    so you get a troll, whom fight for you in the army of the lords.

    that is an overlords promise!

    He’s a HERO. you can resurrect him as often as you need to. So no need to keep him out of combat, as long as you don’t reach your hero limit while he’s dead.

    you are right Lord Nerdfish, sometimes if you plan for the big picture you lose the details.

    I will throw the sorcerer in a few battles starting next sunday.

    #224012

    A small update, I spent less time then anticipated on the army last Sunday and forgot to save the screenshots (will make some screens of the progress when I am back at the overlordian homestead)

    news:

    – With the combined forces of the fire rogue hero (I charmed him when he appeared for the event) and the Naga matriarch I have conquered an dragon dwelling, this means that the 2 golden dragons will be soon added to the Army.

    – I gathered all the already captured units around a more frontier city, they can have some combat experience.

    – About 12 kobolds has died by now and non has become stronger then trooper.

    – the squadron I have send underground to capture the vampire spider queen has been eliminated by some roaming undead dragons.

    – the knight army of the leader is still running around killing threads of the empire.

    – we have become friends with a local human rogue, she was pretty hostile add first, but I think the same charm that seduced our friend the fire rogue also seduced her in an alliance.

    I will have a bit more detailed unit report tomorrow, I will also zoom in on the yeti and firstborn where they are coming from and how they joined the army of the forum

    Isabella?

    Her haircut is generally enough reason for me to kill her. However, you’ve got a higher goal than total map domination today, so I guess you’ve got more important matters to attend to.

    To bad for the kobolds though. Can’t you combine them with some Martyrs to help them survive? These little buggers needs all the help they can get.
