    Sorry my updates have been slipping lately. I haven't gotten too much sleep the last week or so.
    I've posted Lanti's action in the last turn now.

    Turn 46: Ants Arenít the Only Ones Out There

    Actions
    -Research Power
    -Research Skill
    -Capture more butterflies
    -Produce small wheeled vehicles
    -Expand fungus farm





    Antimony works on her secret project.

    Fiona carefully navigates back across the colossal river and follows the stream back to lands she knows. She makes it to Klaffet by the end of the turn.

    Scipio is getting better at building. He builds both remaining outposts this turn, and makes it all the way to Klaffet. Scipio and Fiona meet up and set up Klaffetís signal plant as the turn ends.

    Adamant creates a miniature signal plant that can be held and operated by one ant and only has one light. It wonít transmit your code since that needs six lights to work, but it might be useful for other purposes.

    Lanti starts teaching this brain about the basic concepts of the world. It quickly becomes clear that while it can and does accept basic concepts (like ďthingĒ) it cannot understand many other concepts due to having no senses with which to perceive the world.

    Zektak trains his butterfly to carry him into the sky. No one really knows why heís so excited about this, since he can already fly.

    Theoanta searches around for new organisms to modify. She goes to the high canopy of the Great Tree based on a suggestion from Croverus a few turns ago and meets a new type of insect: the wide, flat, brown cockroaches. After spending a bit of time examining how they live, though, she realizes that these are not just animals like the treehoppers or centipedes - they talk and live in groups, more like you. Unfortunately they donít speak your language.




    Research Power
    Success! Power +4

    Research Skill
    Success, Skill +3

    Capture more butterflies
    You set up more butterfly traps. By the end of the turn you have 1.5 size of butterflies.

    Produce small wheeled vehicles
    You create many vehicles out of wood. Each one can be pulled by a treehopper and can carry up to six ants.

    Expand fungus farm
    The farm will now provide you with 8 food each turn.




    The Food Force brings in the 12 food from the garden, the 8 from the fungus farm, and the 3 from the treehoppers, and discovers a tree full of fruit, which yields 56 more food!

    The Power Research Force has great success and give you +6 Power!

    The Skill Research Force gives you +6 Skill.

    The Food Storage Force increases the capacity to 350 food.




    Heitara sends you a message accepting your conditions and declaring the agreement to be in effect. The ants designated as your record keepers are on their way.

    Actions
    -Research Power
    -Research Skill
    -Train butterfly air force
    -Train treehopper cavalry
    -Create more trebuchets





    Antimony works on her secret project.

    Lanti connects their mind directly to that of the brain. As Lanti watches, it starts forming connections based on the sudden new sensations. Lanti walks around the hive while constantly streaming information to this brain.

    JoJoAnt and Antitan climb the Great Tree and go to the cockroaches. As soon as they try to make mental contact, though, the roaches skitter away from them. They seem scared, probably since they havenít had contact with ants before.

    Scipio rides his treehopper away from Klaffet back toward Vannethia. On the way he spots a truly enormous tree - not as wide or grand-looking as your Great Tree, but much taller. It has some odd wedge-shaped things hanging from it.

    Theoanta goes to the stream to look around for something interesting. She sees a number of interestingly shaped, scaled creatures swimming around. She calls them fish.

    Zektak doesnít figure out how to improve a butterfly.

    Adamant critically fails to make a ranged weapon and ends up driving a plant spike into the wall of the tunnel heís working in. Croverus mentally yelps.




    Research Power
    Success, Power +2

    Research Skill
    Success, Skill +3

    Train butterfly air force
    You train the butterflies to carry ants for travel and during a fight. They can fly as fast as a treehopper jumps, but flight has pros and cons compared to jumping.

    Train treehopper cavalry
    You train your soldiers to fight from the back of a treehopper. It probably needs somewhat different tactics from fighting on the ground, though.

    Create more trebuchets
    You construct several trebuchets that can fling weights many times that of an ant and set them up around the hive and in the branches of the Great Tree.




    The Food Force brings in the 12 food from the garden, the 8 from the fungus farm, and the 3 from the treehoppers, and gathers 30 food from the surrounding undergrowth.

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

    The Food Storage Force increases the capacity to 370 food.

    -Research Skill
    -Set up a farm at the Stream Outpost
    -Investigate the tree Scipio saw
    -Experiment on butterflies.





    Scipioís actions are described under the relevant hive action.

    Antimony works on her secret project.

    Adamant and Zektak work on the ranged weapon idea, but donít get very far.

    Lanti tries to make an ant body for the mind. They discover that ants are very, very complicated, and it would be far easier to convert an existing ant.

    Theoanta tries to catch some fish, but quickly realizes that a fish is much stronger than she is and that there arenít really plants in the river that she can modify. She has a few ideas for tools to help with this task, though.

    JoJoAnt doesnít really figure out how to fuse living things.




    Research Power
    Success, Power +2

    Research Skill
    Success! Skill +6

    Set up a farm at the Stream Outpost
    You create a farm similar to the one at the main hive. It will yield 3 food per turn.

    Investigate the tree Scipio saw
    Scipio leads some ants on treehoppers to the tall tree. They examine the hanging objects and discover them to beÖ well, odd. Theyíre definitely manufactured structures, but are made of a material youíve never encountered before. Itís kind of sticky and malleable, but structurally sound.
    Then you see several insects emerge from an opening in the hanging structure. They look vaguely like fatter, hairy ants, with wings, and are black with brown abdomens.

    Experiment on butterflies
    You make a butterfly stronger, but realize that past a certain point its flight capability drops dramatically.




    The Food Force brings in the 12 food from the garden, the 8 from the fungus farm, the 3 from the outpost garden, and the 3 from the treehoppers, and gathers 32 food from the surrounding undergrowth.

    The Power Research Force gives you +2 Power.

    The Skill Research Force gives you +3 Skill.

    The Food Storage Force increases the capacity to 380 food.

    Lanti will take an ant larva and try to forge a close connection between it and the mind so that they become like a single being. The original mind of the larva is not erased, but is rather merged with the created mind.
