    Turn 49: Good Ants, Bad Ants

    Actions
    -Research Power
    -Research Skill
    -Research Growth
    -Improve fungus farm
    -Contact the bees





    Scipio’s actions are described under the relevant hive action.

    Antimony works on her secret project.

    Zektak attempts to assist in improving the fungus farm, but doesn’t really help.

    Theoanta gathers a large amount of silk and plant fiber and crafts her new invention - a woven net for fishing. It’ll take several ants to use, though.

    JoJoAnt’s attempt to fuse living beings together ends after he gets some ants’ exoskeletons accidentally fused to that of a treehopper,

    Lanti takes a larva and spends the turn attempting to join it mentally to the created brain. They don’t finish the process, but they have a pretty good idea of how to next turn.

    Adamant creates a ranged weapon that is operable by a single ant. It’s made from a plant, of course, and shoots sharpened plant spikes, but they’re propelled by the stretching and snapping of a flexible plant part rather than by any Life magic, so no magic is necessary to operate it. (Basically like a crossbow.) It has to be mounted on an ant’s back to hold it, though, so you either need Life magic or another and to reload it.




    Research Power
    Success, Power +2

    Research Skill
    Success, Skill +3

    Research Growth
    Failure

    Improve fungus farm
    You don’t manage to improve your fungus yield this turn.

    Contact the bees
    Scipio goes to greet the bees.
    “Hello, we’re-”
    The bee cuts him off.
    “You… ants?”
    It speaks strangely, as if it isn’t used to this language.
    “Yes, we’re ants. You’ve met ants before?”
    “Some ants… good. Black ants. Big ants. Some ants bad. Red ants. Small ants. Which… you? Green ants?”
    Scipio tries to figure out what the bee means. Big black ants… that must be the colony near here, the ones who hate magic. Small red ants… Klaffet? The “bad ants” are Klaffese?




    The Food Force brings in the 12 food from the garden, the 8 from the fungus farm, and the 3 from the outpost garden, but doesn’t find any other food this turn. A new generation of treehoppers starts producing honeydew, so they give you 6 food.

    The Power Research Force gives you +4 Power.

    The Skill Research Force doesn’t give you any Skill this turn.

    The Food Storage Force increases the capacity to 385 food.

    Adamant is going to try to invent a strategy game to teach ants battle tactics. (Or would he need to invent that first? or is it a skill or something? i might need to change my action because idk what i should do here)

    Actions
    -Mass-produce plant crossbows
    -Research Power
    -Research Skill
    -Research Growth
    -Learn about/negotiate with bees





    Antimony works on her secret project.

    Zektak studies whether he can increase the success rate for Power in general. He realizes that this is one thing that Arcane power would let him do.

    Lanti connects the mind of the created brain to that of a larva. The mind starts trying to get used to having a body to control.

    Adamant decides to develop some battle tactics by way of a game. He makes a bunch of pieces out of plants to represent various ants and other insects, and sets them up to simulate battles. You can use this to test out how battles might go.

    Theoanta gathers a group of ants and sets up the net on the stream. She sees several fish swim by, but they all manage to avoid the net or swim out of it before they can pull it up.




    Mass-produce plant crossbows
    You make enough of the crossbows to equip a large portion of your soldiers with them.

    Research Power
    Failure

    Research Skill
    Failure

    Research Growth
    Success! You now have five queens and 25 growth.

    Learn about/negotiate with bees
    “Bad ants? What do you mean, bad ants?”
    “Bad ants... take tree. Bad ants take honey. Bad ants take yellow stone. Good ants stay on ground. Like ants should.“
    You don’t know the word “honey”, but you think it might be related to honeydew. The bees seem reluctant to tell you more. You get the impression that they don’t like ants too much in general.
    You’re still wondering about the yellow stone, though.




    The Food Force brings in the 12 food from the garden, the 6 from the treehoppers, the 8 from the fungus farm, and the 3 from the outpost garden, and gathers 36 food from the surrounding undergrowth.

    The Power Research Force has great success and gives you +6 Power.

    The Skill Research Force gives you +2 Skill.
    Next Skill Trait reached! Options below.

    The Food Storage Force increases the capacity to 405 food.




    Your record keepers from Heitara arrive. They will update your history each turn from now on.

    Antimony works on her secret project.

    Scipio offers to trade food to the bees, but discovers that bees have no interest in the sort of food you eat; instead, they sustain themselves exclusively from flowers.

    Lanti accelerates the larva’s growth and shows the mind various pheromones and mental images through it. The mind now has an ant body, and knows the basics about the ants’ world.




    Send ants to crew the message towers to Klaffet
    You send ants out to each outpost that Scipio grew, as well as to Klaffet itself. You now have a working signal line between Vannethia and Klaffet. Your test messages are recieved.

    Research Power
    Success, Power +2

    Research Skill
    Failure

    Learn bee language
    You peer into the minds of bees and learn the rudimentary grammar and vocabulary of the bees’ language.

    Get the location of the bad ants from the bees
    The bees point you to the north, confirming your suspicion of Klaffet being the bad ants.




    The Food Force brings in the 12 food from the garden, the 6 from the treehoppers, the 8 from the fungus farm, and the 3 from the outpost garden, and gathers 39 food from surrounding trees and undergrowth.

    The Power Research Force gives you +2 Power.

    The Skill Research Force doesn’t give you any Skill this turn.

    The Food Storage Force increases the capacity to 415 food.

    The Heitaran record keepers update your records. You now have a detailed record up to the current turn.




    Geometry skill trait gained.

    So I have some unfortunate news.

    January and February are by far the busiest part of the year for me. There's a reason this game started in March last year.

    Therefore, this game will be on a kind of semi-hiatus for the next two months. Updates will be infrequent, and will come on Sundays when they do happen. Sorry about not mentioning this earlier.

    I'm determined to bring the game back, though. In fact, I've decided that my New Year's resolution is to get right back to this game once my schedule clears up. I'll send out PMs when it starts up again.
