Kobolds are not exactly an evil race. They are long subjugated under their betters however. Some were relegated to work in the mines. Backs hunched through time, fingers crooked and bungled. Others, the luckiest of us, found their way onto boats and became very capable deck hands and fishermen. Some of us were used for manual labor. Golmar, the old king, was one such ruler. We and our 10,000 brothers built the city of Galgenmnanlein and watched as the non-fey of the world flocked towards our success hidden in the clouds of the mountain. They used to call Golmar the King of the Mountain. Fruit and milk were left for us every night. Some of us found love among the wild eyed youths, some of us became wild with the freedom of the forests, some of us wandered and became other things altogether. But most of us stayed, stayed and prospered under Golmar.

Until the Magician's Corps arrived. With them came the flying mounts of the outer layers, where alchemical energy fuses with magic resistant creatures and creates wild new amalgams.

On the backs of these flying beasts men and women of the order of the blue flame came, pouring clinging fire over our encampments. Removing the glamour from our castle, open warfare begin.

We outnumbered them 200 to 1 but the magic proved far too strong. Golmar was killed, a member of the Corps stealing the clouded throne. We were then auctioned off to different members of the Corps. 100 of us given to Elidun the Wise. His clambering castle walking South along the Zanaram mountains. (Zanaram is located in the East)

The whole castle can't be made out of stone. It's bound to have some gardens, fountains and at least one decent patch of land for a small farm. Potatoes also grow on wildly varying soil conditions, as long as it's not fully frozen.

Unfortunately our castle is just stone and legs. However it seems to be more than it appears. The stores in the cellar, for instance, are not apparent from the outside. The seemingly spacious and not altogether filled space would normally be seen as the vacant space between the castle and the ground, or perhaps more than that space. Currently however the vessel has crashed into the craggy and mountainous ground (and yet the subterranean storage space persists)>>42139517

>>42139568
Well the castle itself was never purely "real" so the metaphysical parts of it have been altered by the wizards but not destroyed. However, the real parts of it were wrecked and can be found (not on the map) filling that vacant area of the mountain range. You are still close enough to the city to see the smoke rising from the valley.

The kobolds only take up a fraction of the available space in the moving castle. It was known as the Clambering Castle because of the way the leviathan vessel moves its enormous mass over every manner of terrain. In their brief internal search the kobolds have found potions, potatoes, books, and much more. Bringing the potatoes forward into the main living area, a group of kobolds break off to make gardening boxes and another to look for soil or another source of food.

Kobolds move as a pack, mimicking the responses of the head of the group throughout the unit, unless something spook's them enough the think for themselves.

As one, the Kobolds move North among the mountains for the better part of an hour. It is cold and arid and their hands chafe from constantly switching between two and four legs. The smell of smoke and magical discharge fill the air as they shorten the distance between themselves and their recent oppressors. They back off before they get too close, but in the distance they can see mages, flying in the sky.

Heading East for another hour they find the terrain becoming more forgiving and giving way to small plants and bushes. Pressing further they reach a long stretch of small mountains, or very tall hills. Although sparsely populated the soil here is at least plentiful. One of the scouts notices Grey Ear, the fungus, growing from one of the trees and collects all he can find. Another scout notices smoke rising from the valley floor, past the rolling hills. An enormous white standard can be spotted from here, a speck on the horizon.

(+shitty soil, +Grey Ear)

Moving back into the mountains they begin to head south, but soon find themselves climbing a section of the mountain which leads higher and higher, above the clouds. In the distant south a forest can be seen with a small kingdom next to it.

Heading first North, and then East they avoid the higher sections of the mountain range, but find a nearly endless stretch of mountain in front of them. Having already spent the better part of the day scouring these mountains the group agrees to only press on for another two hours before heading back.
However, immediately after reaching this decision they find a path that leads down between two jutting rocks and into the mountain itself. Water can be heard in the cavern beneath. The group agrees to return to the castle before exploring inside.

As the Kobolds return the rest of the group leaves the castle to engulf them. With a windstorm of everyone talking, soon the group quiets and everyone has heard everything worth knowing, and they head inside.

Entering the main dining area that has been used as H.Q. due to its size, our scout party goes and lays on the furs in the corner to rest. A few kobolds have apparently found instruments. One with a strange hollow sounding fife, another with a small animal skin drum, and a third with a single stringed lute; gather around the sleepers and play them improvised tunes, poorly.

Most of the rest of the group elects to continue scouting, but now on the interior of their structure. What they find astounds and unsettles them. There seem to be two properties at work within the hallways leading off from the main living area.
1) There is no end to them
2) They appear to be shifting
These obstacles are easily overcome as a group however as the leader of the formation never enters a new section unless the tail of the group is still in the area before the previous room and connected by a series of kobolds. This gives them at least several rooms in a row with a consistent layout.

For fear of being lost in the castle they never venture more than a few rooms past the main section of the castle, although repeating the process has given them varied results. Doors which have been thus far un-taken have led to small gardens with glass rooftops, moonlit vistas overlooking turbulent seas and red stars, and a vast lavender ocean. Doors which have been thus far unopened hide the sounds of great beasts and other unidentifiable sounds beyond.

Pressing forward one last time the group finds themselves (all of themselves) crammed into a room paneled with dark woods. Each of the walls has a view port covered in volcanic glass. In the center of the room is a large control panel covered in arcane runes and metaphysical capacitors.

(1/2)

>> No.42140719

In the center of the panel is a heart shaped depression surrounded with black ash and still smouldering embers, cascading through colors, alive with unseen life. Shards of a crystal which seemed to fill this gap are littered around the room, the largest of them glowing crimson. In the center of the depression is a hole which leads into the center of the panel and through its stout base, into the room itself.

As best as you can tell (with you fey heritage and killer roll), magic energy is pumped through here *indicates the hole in the center of the panel, and comes out here *gestures "around" indicating the castle.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed the kobold closest to the door handle opens the door and the group finds themselves exiting through a new door back into the dining area. The resting kobolds and the musicians have rushed over and tell you about the green fire which erupted on the wall before this door appeared as you tell them about the ever changing scenery beyond this section of the castle. An emerald seal appears above the door in an unknown script. It doesn't appear to be going anywhere.

>> No.42140748

Wanting to distance themselves from the daunting task of magical guesswork the kobolds take their shitty soil and put it in their planter boxes. Using the far corner of the dining room, under the windows, as a temporary location we plant our first potato crop.

Pretty nice. We should research the control system, see if we can fix certain locations, etc. Since it's magical and we have the wizard's books available and an aptitude for both scholarship and magic, we probably have a good shot.

mort does using two actions guarantee success like your op image says or are we gonna need to roll?

In that case, suggest we devote an action to researching the wizard's books in case we find notes on how the castle works and another action CAREFULLY researching the control system.

I'm unclear on whether it just powers the castle or if it can arrange the rooms and make them accessible.

My suggestion is to use the books of Elidun the Wise in researching the castle and the control room. Maybe his notes are available.

After that, send in our mages and see what they can understand, though I stress the need for care to be taken before they blow themselves up.

The group considers leaving this place. Taking what supplies they can carry and heading towards the kingdom to the South, or along the mountains to the West. But they know they can't do that. They've been given a bloody chance when they liberated themselves and they will take this chance.

Some of the more soft spoken among us retrace their earlier steps and gather books they had seen about the castle, and in the mages bedroom. Many of the books are intentionally esoteric. Using scripts and codes that are made entirely unnecessary by the small circles the books are circulated in, they are inscrutable. However some of the books seem to be no more than the Elidun's personal notes. Plenty of sections seem to be on magical theory and are similarly inscrutable. However, another portion is more of a journal. Plenty of entries are about chasing women, or impersonating women to chase women. Most end with his calling forth some golem or summoning some entity for questioning, a couple end in overly detailed copulation.

A precious few of the notes however go into his personal exaltations for his creation rather than the magical theory it relies on. Apparently the mage crystallized his essence, much as liches have been known to do. But rather than implanting it into some creature he grew a special wood and enchanted some stone to resonate with his own flesh, making a magical castle metaphysically indistinguishable from his actual body. The crystal containing his essence would respond to his magical wishes and let him wander the endless castle at whim as well as direct it and use its defenses. This took unique and precise amounts of magical energy.

There are also some notes scribbled in the last section of the journal about different concoctions that the mage was trying. Many of the descriptions match vials and jars you have found around the castle. Taking a large jar, which when moved shines violently before going dark again, you compare it to the notes and it matches the description of flight serum. Apparently he was trying to make a potion to sell to adventurers who wanted to fight harpys and other flying monsters on their own level.

However he counted the potion a loss. Too much energy for mortal consumption. On a desperate whim the potion is poured into the main hole of the control panel and (+mobile castle) suddenly the castle lurches back up on its feet. It begins to gently amble South due to the curve of the slope.

Let's start here
>>42141377
That mage was called wise but after reading so much of his "work" the kobolds felt tired. Moving back into the main dining hall through the sigiled door the kobolds go over to check on their potatoes.

As they walk they think about potatoes. How good they are. How quickly a kobold child will mature with great gobs of mashed potatoes and wild honey. Or potatoes submerged in the boiled fat of wild hogs. The sight that greets them is however is unkind.

By some strange magic the potatoes have fully grown! (+1 turn of food)
However they look like something not meant for consumption. Better to leave them in the ground for the voles and their kind. But, we hunger. Perhaps a larger trough? After utilizing half of the remaining wood a much larger trough is built. Something this size would provide a bit more (+1 additional food per turn) yield, even on a failed crop like this.

The problem is our (shit soil) the kobolds decide. Perhaps if they actually started shitting in it it would get more nutrients...
Actually there is probably a more direct path to solving this problem. Either we need to find something in the castle which can help the plants or go back to the cavern with the water and get some nutrient rich soil.

With no one to lead them the kobolds are prone to deferring hard decisions while more easy decisions lay at hand. They will decide how to deal with the potatoes soon. For now they need to try and steer this ship, or something.

Since the sigiled door stands always open unless closed from the inside the group awkwardly shuffles towards the control room. Getting the castle moving again was thrilling and filled with hope. But knowing that we then were in control of an unwieldy magic castle with no captain is a bit overwhelming.

The room looks different since the castle sprung back to life. Orange energy flows from behind the walls and interwoven in the control panel. Upon closer inspection there are numerous paths for energy to flow through and the orange energy paths only make up a fraction of the possibilities. The control panel seems to modulate these energies somehow. There are sections which appear to have spots for physical manipulation.

You press one of the buttons with the orange hue beneath it and from across the dining room another sigiled door blazes into existence.

I'll probably take it for the post that it went with but as a boon before checking the door out the group went outside and anchored several of the legs to large rocks and wedged another between stones.

Having anchored the castle, for now, a few of our braver kobolds silently volunteer to scout the room by stepping forward. Whatever is beyond can sense them and the sigil flares orange power as the door rattles. Starting with the nearest kobold, the whole group goes silent and then invisible.

Approaching the door is the single greatest feat of kobold bravery since the time of Golmar, opening the door - the first act of madness. In the darkness within and inky blackness resolves into a writhing earthborn sky mount of the mages. From the sigil the old mages voice shouts a command and the mount bows its head without volition. Sometimes with the head of a lion, sometimes that of an eagle the mount's body is made of pure plant energy. Every manner of vine and thorn composes and decomposes this mass of sometimes tentacles sometimes clawed paws.
