Me and my bodyguards charge into the right flank on our grasshoppers, bannerman at the forward next to me, trumpets blowing. I hold a shield made from the exoskeleton of a stag beetle and a serrated sword made from mantis claws.

OOC: idk can our leaders have equipment like that lol, stone age tools were basically made of bone and antler and being insects exoskeletons and such wouldn't be far off lol

also I would like to suggest elephant beetles to be added to the list of "Vehicles"
aka something like a elephant or tank lol

I guess so, but you'd have to capture them in the wilds.

If your leader fights valiantly, he may. If your leader stays behind fighting a battle from a bunker, nothing's going to happen (I did notice that your leader is actually fighting the battle sword in hand, I just wrote this last sentence to make the post longer).

Could you restate your turn? I didn't quite understand it.

I move my leader to the right flank who got ambushed to lead them against the enemy. Trying to push them back into their own allies to surround the other forces.

I start the research on Fire, I then send out a team to find the people who scouted the surrounding lands. I then send a team to find a way that has no mantises. I also look for weak mantise outposts. I'd like a desc. of my defenses, I then tell the rest of soldiers to collect wood and improve our defenses.

No problem, just take your turn now and everything will be back to normal (I know what that feels like).

TURN 4 - Next deadline: July 27, 12:01 PM

"This way. Yes, this is the way." The leader of the group advanced through the maze of tunnels, torch in hand. He was a medium-sized tarantula, dressed in a ragged violet cloak over iron armor that was of great make, but somewhat rusted. His sword was put away in its scabbard, bow and quiver on his back. He was leading a group of four tarantulas, five with him.

"We've been here for days." said a smaller voice "When are we actually going to get out of this **** place?"

"Dunno." was the reply from the leader. He seemed to be awful sure of himself, however, unlike his reply. "Do you smell that?" He asked the others. "We're near the exit."

He was right. Twenty meters from the small group, there was natural light. A human could have traversed this distance in half a minute, but it was a long journey for a tarantula. However, the leader turned out to be right, there was an opening nearby. One after another, the small company left the tunnel.

"Well, we're almost there." Said one of the companions "I can see the gatehouse, even from here." Some three-hundred meters from where they were standing was indeed a city with a rather large gatehouse. From here, it seemed a petty thing with smaller walls. But as they approached, the fortifications of the town showed their true size.

The city of Stroud had not survived hundreds of assaults from mantises and tarantulas alike out of sheer luck. Its walls rivaled those of many other cities that were considered greater. The city was built on top of a great hill with natural walls. On top of this gift of nature, ant-made walls were built. Of solid rock, the walls were strong indeed. It was, however, quite apparent that they had seen better days. Places where stones had been hurled at the walls had been filled with mortar rather than built again, several battlements had fallen off and been replaced with wooden planks. Mosses and plants covered a large part of the walls.

Inside the great walls, there was the town. The inhabitants lived in average conditions, neither rich nor poor. Most were ants, however, a small population of brown spiders lived there as well.. These spiders had been refugees from a nearby town that had been sacked by the mantises. The brown spiders had been forced to live in squalor and poverty, however. This was the reason the tarantulas were here. They approached the Gate of the Moon, the southernmost gate. It led directly to the Brown District.

The tarantulas had, however, dyed themselves brown to appear to be normal brown spiders. They were young tarantulas, and as such, not of great size. They passed the gates, guarded by strong ants-men, without coincidence. Inside, the terrible conditions became apparent. The brown spiders had many diseases, and many were near death.The leader smiled.

"Let's get to business, gents!" he said to the other tarantulas. They smiled back.

Inside the Queen's chamber, you find lots of bodies. Most of them belong to her bodyguard, the toughest bees of the hive. The others belong to lesser bees, who were probably in the wrong place at the wrong time. Shuffling the bodies, you see that there is more toxin in this area than in the last, which probably means that in this place the fighting was fiercer. There is no sign of the queen or her corpse.

However, you notice that something is wrong with one of the purple puddles. It seems as if something heavy had been dragged through it. Where it ends, there is a large hole in the nest that leads to a nearby branch. The queen was a large creature, but not nearly as big as what seems to have been dragged through this place.

You are suddenly disturbed by one of your bees, who barges in and says rapidly.

"Sir. We have found a survivor."

The enemy army collapses upon itself after your rapid charge, and scarce amounts of them start a rout. Claws and stones crash against each other for the rest of the day until what is left of the enemy army retreats in a somewhat orderly manner towards their own anthill and barricades the entrance. Only half of the enemy army remains.

That night, there is celebration in your army. There is song and drink, and taunts towards the enemy, and canticles praising your deeds in battle.

"As you wish, sire!" Cry your men as they prepare the pompous and massive banquet that will take place that night. Shortly afterwards, a Night Ant caravan approaches. Their leader, wearing a great purple cloak and a golden crown, is at the front, riding next to his counselor and his lieutenant. They are followed by his greatest men and women, all of which are dressed in rich and beautiful garments.

The Night Ant king accepts your offer most graciously and shakes your hand. "It is an honor to meet you, lord of the Liverpool."

Keep defenses: Petty dirt wall.

(you need to research other technologies before you can research fire).

"Sir, we have found that there is a way to the west of here. But to the North there are mantises, and to the south and east there is water. There are no mantis outposts near the keep, they usually stay North of the Thames by what intelligence we have managed to collect."

(you cannot yet collect wood) but your soldiers construct a minor dirt wall around the keep. It has small dirt mounds that will serve as towers, but the walls themselves confer some advantage to those defending it.

Your soldiers go away, looking for the others. Two days later, the soldiers who went away to look for the others return. "Sir. We have found them. But not alive."
