Anthill Defenses: Dirt Wall (Minor)

"Sir, the tall people are dangerous and volatile by nature" says your advisor. "They are best avoided - or terminated." he further remarks with a grin. "Not for long."

Meanwhile, the colony exists in bliss with every ant working as is due. Respecting the wall, your soldiers immediately commence fortifying it with mud bricks and dirt, making it attain a slightly larger stature. Several of the soldiers take your offer, but most decide to work for free as sign of their fealty and service to you.

During the construction of the wall, one of your scouts quickly comes back to the city, panting with effort. "Sir. There appears to be a new tall creature in the house, but it is peculiar, as it crawls in four feet and makes loud, disturbing noise. It is dirt in color, and water sprouts almost continually from its horrid mouth."

"Have mercy!" they cry. "We have females and larvae!"

With considerable effort, your ants push the rock and cover the hole. "Now what?" they ask, panting.

Some emissaries of the Tarantula force ride forwards in tall grasshoppers. They unmount. They are clad in heavy iron and have long broadswords at their back. After exchanging some words in their hideous language, they turn to your men.

"Hello, puny, uncivilized maggots." says one of them with a deep voice. "Do you understand the common tongue? We are seeking a group of our comrades, were here some days ago. We will reward you if you tell us anything you know about them."

Hive defenses: Mud Wall (Minor)

"Charge!"
A great force of your men, mounted on grasshoppers, quickly cut the distance between them and the Termite mound. Within seconds, a massive force of termites had angrily come out of the foul place, swarming the nearby yard with their despicable selves.

After making contact, your soldiers began the planned retreat with success. The termites ran behind, eagerly chasing after the mounted warriors. They rapidly entered the walls and then the gates were shut.

Outside your walls, a great number of termites assembled. Rocks, water, and other projectiles were thrown at them, but still they tried to scale the wall.

"Sir, it's too dangerous!" says your advisor, a cautious bee. "If they managed to break this hive's defenses, who knows what they are capable of? They might kill us all!"

I head over to the tarantulas and introduce myself calmly.

"Hello! I am the leader of these 'maggots,' here. You tarantulas are a humorous lot!" I say with a bit of a chuckle.

"Heh, that's enough chatter from me. Now, about your men... Hmm... Recently, a group of... Three, was it? Yes, three tarantulas did indeed stop by our humble lodge recently. They said they needed a moment to rest, so we insisted that they stay here for a day or two. We gave them some food as well, of course. However, they left before the next sunrise woke us. Unfortunately, not even the soldiers on guard duty happened to spot them on their way out. We haven't a clue which direction they were headed," I say, feigning a look of thoughtfulness.

"Well, I believe that's everything. Care for 10 food for your troubles?"

( OOC:I assume you didn't make the termites call off the attack) 2 groups of 25 mounted soldiers and 50 on foot are told to go out the rear gate, where the termites are not attacking, and attack the termites in the flank and rear.

I ponder on this creature, and decide that it is best dead. 'However,' The Prince says to his advisor, 'We lack resources to terminate its existence.' But the food it would bring would astronomical.'
I tell a group of 50 soldiers to go scavenge for food. In addition, I would still like workers on that wall.

"Now, Now we get back to building our kingdom instead of messing with these louts"

ooc( Where are the requirements to build walls? And are there any other buildings currently available? Just wondering because food production is low compared to the requirement of technology and soldier production)
