    Originally, in the first game, you would only have started with a Power Source if you chose Adept. Good thing for the development of the story that Xihirli did!
    Wow. I legitimately forgot that the original game started with a choice of colony type.

    Ah I see. It's meant as a reference to the titans from Greek mythology, that's why I didn't catch your meaning.

    Well never count me someone to criticize a Greek reference, I like the name well.

    Here too! I'll join with an ant bearing the glorious name of Zektak! Ofcourse Power Seeker. MORE POWER!

    Voting for Adept and Swelling Horde

    As for name, Golden does not really seem to fit the Jungle theme to me. Why not something like:
    -Poison Swarm
    -Toxic Colony
    -Venom Horde

    Naming like that would kind of lock you into either developing a lot of poison abilities or having many awkward explanations.

    I like the word Horde, but I actually like the idea of standing out from the rest of the Jungle, since after a bit we'll be molding it into our own image. Golden works well for that.

    People okay with maybe Golden Horde over Golden Hive? It's only a slight preference.

    Good point on standing out from the Jungle, Xihirli. Will we go with Ramsus' proposal to be gold-coloured ants or have golden stripes? Because that would fit nicely with the name and a bright colour for an insect in the jungle seems like an excellent fit.

    We'd be intimidating, though! Also, besides mud, we can dig and develop skills/powers to be good spies if desired.

    If we are called the Golden Horde, we have to learn aphid-back archery and live in ant-yurts. In other words, I support the change.

    See, that's why I suggested something like that. Throwing out little bits about how we look slightly unusual (though perfectly reasonable for insects) gets us all sorts of conversation that fleshes out how we exist and operate in the world that we'd just skip otherwise.

    You can decide, but note that trying to develop metalworking in a tree isnít very viable. I would recommend being under a tree.

    Also, in case you want to change votes: Swarm, the trait from Swelling Horde, doubles the outcome of an action - positive or negative.

    I like the idea of being under a tree since it means we can spread out both underground and up the tree itself.
