I don't know what you're referring to on the chart but I can speak from experience as a CM that I just used the name field because I don't know how to use tripcodes. That's probably behind at least a good bit of it.

Yes, random dice would probably decide how much godjuice do you normally get, with additional piety being gained (or lost) by deeds.

Probably gonna make this matter of not overall piety (like, get 2000 godjuice - get new reward), but a matter of consistent growth (If you previously consistently produced 200 praisethesunium per turn, but started to praise harder and now produce 300 praisethesunium, you get noticed more).

No he can't. He will just continue to link back to previous one-line posts and dismiss you out of hand for not understanding his glorious and perfect nonsense. This was how he single handedly killed civs back in the day. He tried doing it with quests, but they were far more quick to stamp him out. The civ community is slow and nice enough so that every time he shows up, there is someone who doesn't know him that is willing to engage him.

Do not engage him. I have seen him drive more threads into the ground then I can count. He killed entire communities with his toxic vitriol and constant image spamming, a death by a thousand cuts, spread out over such a length of time so as to prevent the community at large from gaining a proper immunity.

I say this as a warning, not a shitpost or an attack against him, and while I say it at the risk of feeding him, I feel it must be said before it is too late and the cycle begins again. He will spam and troll and spam again until either he is ignored, or there are no more threads to spam. He's gone through multiple trips, and now just doesn't use one.

I feel like I'm a fucking time traveler trying to stop a terror attack or something. I've seen it happen again and again, and each time it started with someone saying "well you're being mean to him, let's give him a chance" and then it was over before it began.

So you need to ask yourself where and how you want to cut corners and soften things up? Will you ignore delta-V? Fuel efficiency is just assumed to be a non-issue? Material science is assumed to have unlocked magical near mass-less metamaterials as strong as diamond? These are all things that can serve as explanations for hand waving or simplifying otherwise overwhelmingly complex issues. Will you keep track of every planet, celestial object, and orbital path in the game and dynamically calculate the delta-V and acceleration of every ship to figure out the travel time between any two places, or will you add a "speed" stat and roll a few dice to account for orbits?

In any case, regardless of if you want to run a space opera, pulp, or something that looks like hard sci-fi, the single most critical thing to keep in mind is consistency. Players can deal with some incredibly outlandish things, but the moment something is not internally consistent, then they find it odd.

So long as it's internally consistent, anything goes. Just make sure you have fun.

I did, I DM'd and played as the Insect civ cause the players insisted, but I wasn't really trying to win or anything, I intentionally razed and devoured villages I took so my hive would eventually starve itself and collapse under it's weight, I would've self-capitulated in the event of a civ-conflict anyhow, I wanted the players to have fun, not me

I like ants so it was basically oversized Formicidae killing and being killed over more land (I made the voracious hunger thing more of a lethal wound than an inconvenience like the chart states), I was eventually sending workers to steal fucking livestock, foodstores got that desperate

So, in the spirit of Transparency and Homonculi civ coming to an end soon(ish), I'd like to share my thoughts on some civs I'm interested in doing up in the near future and would love to hear your guys opinions on what you'd like to see done up or hear suggestions, etc..

>Crystallid Civ
The default go to- have been talking about it a lot before and have established very much what I intend on doing with it: no-sex, mineral people, little bit of war/competition, IN SPACE, at the dawn of time pre-any forms of life. Lots of spiritual shenanigans- perhaps even a little more so than cyclops civ. If you want more of what Cyclops civ was- you'll like this.

>Undead Civ
More of a "city-state" or "country" manager than an entire civilization: we would focus around the undead ruler of an Undead country forming on the outskirts or within the referenced "Rotwood" and try to make a safe haven and city for sapient/aware undead. Each session would be about "10 years" and gameplay would focus on expanding and upgrading your country to make it more appealing to undead migrants and refugees as well as dealing with the unique societal and cultural problems faced by such a multitude of different undead trying to live peacefully and so forth. The first choice players would indeed make is what 'type' of undead they'd wish to be the leader. If you want more political intrigue, drama and conflict- you'll like this.

>Bee Girl Civ
We do up a tribe of 1ft tall cute bee girls in a pristine, untouched and beautiful "dire" woods: far from any civilization the aim of the game would be a mix of survival and cute bee girls (and a couple of cute bee boys) doing cute bee things lead by a big, curvy, 2ft tall 'giantess' (by their standards) queen bee. Would mostly be a for-fun/joke civ that would be moe-garbage that I could run on autopilot, though depending on how poorly we do it would very well go madoka pretty hard. If you want me to do something Harvest-moon esque then you might like this.

Oh and the fourth bonus option:

>/D/emon Civ.
If you guys know where I could host a horribly nsfw /d/-tier civilization: I'm not at all opposed to doing one up -uncensored-. You know, just a bunch of /D/emons- From the mildly to wildly referenced "Red world" tryin' to make a living in their horrifically sexually charged native realm. I guess the "first choice" given could be a choice between what sort of Demon Lord you'd wish to follow.. And that would set the pace for goals/fetishes, I.E: a hermaphroditic giantess omnibus, maybe an Imp Gang Boss or a swarm of Succubi/incubi- Who knows.

I'm thinking for the Undead Civ the leader choice would be about balancing the skills, personality and so forth of the Undead leader since different undead would have different goals, skill-set and would leave a different impression on their people.
Here's a basic example, but something like:

>Skeleton Lord or King
Stereotypical "laughing skeleton". Has been dead for so long he's rotten away to a skeleton; no longer remembering who or what he used to be, but is using this as a chance to claim royalty. A mild to wild psycopath- He is generous and liberal with wine and merriment and although mildly racist against the living he is the most accepting to all undead types.

>Vampire Lord
Excessively beautiful, handsome and charismatic 'young' vampire who's out to 'stake' a claim for himself and build his first country. Overall the "well-balanced" choice: equally invested in the lives of his undead subjects, but not opposed to accepting living outsiders (he needs a court of consorts, followers and a source of living blood after all). Very much a RTS kind of chap.

>Bashful Necromancer
A quiet and shy Necromancer; she works a lot behind the scenes or is otherwise the "woman behind the curtain" for her people. Not interested in the drama of political intribue: she just wishes to build a secure and cozy home for her undead 'family'. Very much a ""This Land is Peaceful, its Inhabitants Kind" sort of gal. Only leader who can CREATE more undead as opposed to accepting migrants for population growth. Is herself not undead.

You're perfectly welcome and encouraged to make suggestions.

Another concept/idea I had for a leader option:

>Creeper Nun
Made from the harvested and gutted organs of at least a dozen nuns, held together with wrappings torn and made from sacred texts- She was an attempt at making an Undead immune to "Holy". The same type of undead as Elizabeth from Homonculi Quest: The Creeper nun would be the theocratic choice as despite her creators intentions she wishes to create a religion and seek a god that would provide comfort and hope for all undead. She'd be the "weirdest" choice for sure.

Well I had a few different ones.

The one I tried to do was Golem Civ a few months back. But it went no where because I hated how I ended up running it. I make a terrible QM/CM

The Golems are the creation of the Forge God of the Setting, and have lived underground since as long as they can remember.
How ever an earthquake up roots them and forces them to move above ground.
There they come into conflict with other races.

The furthest we got was pissing off the Elves that lived in a near by forest by cutting down their trees to make a new settlement.

The golems are a peaceful race that love forging and creating new technology.
To them, weapons and armor are not only tools, but art.
They have 'gender' of a sort.
Male Golems have a blue glow to the stone in their chest. Which is called a Soul Stone, a small, nearly indestructible stone that houses the Golems very essence.
Female Golems soul stone glows pink.
When a male and female golem fall in love, they create a body of a child like Golem and use a Soul Stone to create new ones.
Soul Stones are created by Priests of the Forge God.
The child Golem usually grows to 'adulthood' within 16 years, with the average life span being about 1000 years, before their soul is called back to the Forge God.

They are weak to lightening and explosives.

Should they ever encounter Flesh Golems, they would harbor an unrelenting hatred for them and destroy them as quick as possible.

They would naturally be good at creating new items, mining and such.
But suffer poorly in magic and other related areas.
Being Golems, they do not require rest, but do chose to do so, so that they may spend time with their 'families', if they have one.

>Dinosauroids and loxo?

>Animal people.

(I know Dinosaurids aren't technically animal people, but they're included in this as a technicality)

Generally speaking I try to refrain from choosing or picking any sort of Animal people.
I don't really enjoy Animal people as a "Civilization" building species given how MANY of them there are and how similar they are all to one another in general theme in feel.

I mentioned Bee Girls as a potential "Civ" because it would be a break from serious Civving and be cute girls/boys doing cute bee things.

I greatly appreciate Animal People as a kind of complimentary or footnote species: a product of a world being excessively magical and fertile to the point where there's a primitive sub-division of animal person in almost every environment.
They never amount to much of anything, but they walk a thin line between "people" and "animal"- and if existing in a vacuum never advancing beyond the point of being above nature, but at the same time being "sophisticated enough" to assimilate well into more advanced species civilizations.

They're basically, uh.. They're like a HomoHabilis kind of stage: Too in-line with being an animal to truly advance, but just humanoid enough if they get outside help they'll quietly roll into society.
So, yeah, that's my stance on Animal People.

Honestly it just sounds like you know/knew everything you need to know right down to what you did wrong: You picked a race, but got tired of it.

Which is a classic blunder, but realistically one that you never see coming.

I don't know exactly what to tell you, but from my experience with my two civs:

I guess the best thing you can do or learn from these kinds of situations is you have to constantly have things going on, evolving and developing: Complacency in your civ, race, etc.. Eventually kills it as all the fun and magic gets sucked out of it and from that point on everything seems to just spiral down.
You gotta make it exciting for your players and you have to make it exciting for yourself.

Things need to "go wrong" and your people have to have "problems", etc.

That's when you start mixing it up. Just the difference in physical characteristics would make wildly distinct species. Then we add in magical and mythical shit and voila!

>They never amount to much of anything, but they walk a thin line between "people" and "animal"- and if existing in a vacuum never advancing beyond the point of being above nature, but at the same time being "sophisticated enough" to assimilate well into more advanced species civilizations.
See, there's where i disagree with you. My biggest gripe with beastmen is that they're always portrayed as something between "ravenous horde" and "noble savages" or, if we take certain sources, "noble savages being forcefully civilized by mighty human D". This is boring. This is not only boring, but IS the reason

is anyone using the 6d6 technique to counter the shitty below average dice rolls on this board, or are you rolling your own IRL dice?

im not sure if you're the only one whos saying that the "chart needs to be scrapped"- i dont think thats the problem, as its the template....(maybe im biased though, because of how much time i've spent on the damn thing..)
i think what make cyclops civs so fun is he incorporated things other than "lmao roll to kill XX people ETC" and it actually had somewhat of a story-
i have some ideas that could revolutionize civs as we know but i need alot of time and i dont want to waste it if its just going to be pushed aside.

as far as migrating, i think thats a terrible idea as it takes away from...the community in more than one way- it would change the format and playstyle and i highly suggest NOT moving, but trying to create new and exciting ways to play/create for civs to be fun(im not saying they're not fun but like i said, they get dull and...almost tedious if i may)

1 idea i had- is to have a community of people dedicated to the cause and make a rules template, a "set setting", and among other things as a base- so that people are more motivated, like i said people dont have to carbon copy it but just to give them ideas.
as far as your claim for the age of civ passing, i disagree, i believe its just a "dark age" for civs at the moment-i could elaborate more but i believe you all get the gist of what i mean

as far as the community, it could be a good idea, it could be a horrible idea, but i would like to know what the "star players" think- just to name a few (crog,cyclops,jyoti,shmeh, sorry if i missed anyone)
if so i could create a group on steam/skype whatever the case may be and we could start creating a schedule and get some shit done.

One can be only about the main character and a story, another can be about an upstart with a guild simulator with recruits and a spreadsheet. The main character being an abstract civ or a hero leading the civ is just more of the same. Players still roleplay a council or voices in someone's head. I never did see the merit in separating civs from the main quest general, except that as an act of courtesy the quest general is reserved usually for weekends (after that anti-questfag janitor had a stroke about them and eventually got kicked, but the community kept this habit). But it would, at least, increase popularity slightly further via mingling and proper search tags. Having the quest tag on your civ thread would already show up on many more users' catalogs.
