So I've seen that /tg/ likes this game. So as a first time player I come to you for help.

How the fuck do you start a tribe? I completed all of the heroquests except for Emlal's and asked for the blessing to start a tribe. However I wasn't able to get but one clan to join me. So how do I get a second chance at tribeforming? Short game by the way.

Also King of Dragon Pass general.

>So how do I get a second chance at tribeforming?
I don't think you can get a second chance. This game is very unforgiving.
Your clan circle looks pretty shitty as well, too many people worshipping the same gods.

Yeah, I've been playing for quite a few years just getting bigger and bigger. I'm already responsible for creating 5 split of tribes, which is why I am trying to form a tribe.


So basically game is over then? Cause my ring keeps telling me we should attempt to form a tribe.

I recently found out they're making an iOS port. I don't use Apple stuff, but it's nice to see A-Sharp still kicking.

Someone should make a similar game, with an original setting if must (says he, with no intention of doing it himself). There's a bunch of simple game construction and programming kits out there, and for something like KoDP you could even use something like a VN-based kit, like Ren'py.

The original game had a lot of text, a lot of art work, lots of great stuff, though. The only people who could be dedicated enough would be completely autistic, and they wouldn't be able to create such a great personality for the game. At best, something like King of Dragon Pass: Dwarf Fortress Edition.

I'm thinking of starting a new game since a War clan of ALL RAIDING ALL THE TIME was awesome in theory but I had to stave of starvation like every other year.
I got three big questions, which gods do you think I should represent in my circle? (besides my main deity ofc) and are thralls worth it? Should I take thralls, maybe keep the option open without actively taking them or have ancestors that didn't take thralls?

Guys, tell me about this game. I am sad and clueless.

>> No.12845085

based on the setting for the old rpg hero/runequest, its a peculiar mix of rpg, strategy and management, most akin to a choose your own adventure book.

You lead a clan, with the aim of surviving and thriving, but various events get in the way, from rivalry with neighboring groups to the weather, ice demons, wandering adventurers, trolls, drunken clan members, thieving bastards and a mess of other things. The best solution to problems is not always apparent, or available, or the same as clans have a history to live up to, gods to praise and not piss off and various other messes.

Its a hard game as you have to not think in the same way as you would for most games and get into the role part of it (making it in a peculiar way a far more role-playing crpg than even the best ones of the genre).

Yeah, that's a neat thing about KoDP. Rather than simply calculating what gives you the biggest numbers, your success depends more on your ability to please your ancestors and follow ancient customs and shit like that.

Ducks worship Humakt the god of Death. they used to follow the sun God but during the God War they switched sides to support the Storm god, so the sun God punished them by taking away their power of flight.
Since the start of Time many ducks have been drawn to Humakt out of a sense of Nihilism. Also the duck homeland is on the edge of a massive swamp filled with the undead hordes of the Great necromancer, Delecti. Humakt, as the god of Death of the Storm pantheon, abhors the undead, and teaches many special techniques to fight them.

First thing you want to do is to get max Crafters, max herd magic and Calf Blessing. Without those you won't get enough resources.

Yeah, seizing land is fucking beyond difficult to impossible if they have any chance of hunkering down and resisting. You have to completely and totally crush and ruin them for them to leave.

I had been preparing and I always do because I know how often they appear. I spend the first year learning mysteries, solving feudes and exploring for trade goods. If things are okay the second year I focus solely on building a good number of weaponthanes and learning mysteries to help.

mysteries I consider nessiccary at all times are
-Woad (Orlanth)
-Truesword (Humakt)
-Fyrdwomen (Vinga)

with those 3 you can safely focus on more important duties such as food, trade and magic while still having a force that will rip anything it touches to shreds.

Get Calf Blessing and max crafters. Then try to buy and ask for cattle all the time until you have something like 1000. After that you should have enough to keep your herd from diminishing because they reproduce faster than enemies and random events kill or steal them.
Also Cattle Raids work better with less men because you won't get spotted as easily.
If you want to feud then you must choose one guy in your neighbourhood and rape him.

The game is mostly about managing time. You get set number of actions every year so you have to optimize. Spring is good for trade and exploration.
Fire Season can either be used to advance your grand war strategy or if you are not feuding then use it for trade and exploration. If you are not thinking about wiping someone out or absolutely need to please your thanes don't raid. Cattle Raiding is cheaper and safer and herds are more important than goods.
Earth Season is once again good for trade and exploration.
Dark Season is best used to do sacrifices, building temples and managing other inner events.
Storm Season is a wild card and you can do pretty much everything you did in Fire Season.

If you are sending explorers far away give them time. If you have too many explores out at the same time you risk being event locked if you start several long event chains at the same time. If you are event locked you can't really do anything and you risk losing because you can't recruit more thanes or adjust patrols or pray for healing.
