How do you summon Brikthulu?

Postby Atomsk » Mon Mar 02, 2009 12:35 pm

This actually came up in a game on Saturday, as one of the players attempted to have his army commit mass suicide in order to bring Brikthulu into the physical realm. We allowed it because he had to leave early for his grandma's birthday or some other BS, and it was a convenient way to get rid of his guys.

Is this valid though? I always pictured it happening in some torch-lit basement with hooded figures surrounding a summoning circle drawn in blood.

You can't summon Brikthullu, he'll just come when he wants and that's it.

I guess I always just figured there was some flashy way involving lots of death, lost forever in the missing supplement chapter...

oneyackaronamadeestliquexcvieszxpolkmonstopdetoyuomentyietmqupopti
editseitdfghlkshemaka,lord of flames and fire.

or kalinaminalamasomarackatoaeronter(kal-ina-minal-amaso-marack-a-toae-ronter) for short
or kalina for even shorter
hes great for ending battles since all area 100inchs around him is burnt to dust regardless of what its made of, his heat also melts the ground onto lava, but he normally toys with the armys not realising his full power and incinarating them 10 by 10.

There are many ways to summon Brickthulhu. All of them horrible.

So, theoretically, mass-suicide is a viable option, no?

Yes, but the person who mass-suicided would automatically lose because their entire force went kaputt. You wouldn't be able to control Brikthulu because, well, he's Brikthulu. You'd have to have someone who wasn't already playing an army and who will cause complete destruction with him, play as Brikthulu.

That's basically what happened anyways.

I think I'm going to take control of Brikthulu and his cultists for the next game, because I'm tired of being the good guy. I think forces of evil and chaos will probably be a lot more fun and rewarding in this game.

Let everyone control Brikthulhu. Makes the game more chaotic and allows him to kill more stuff.

Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

it's generally accepted that even if you summon a demonic elder god, if all your troops die, you lose.

Yes. Summoning Brikthulu would not make him on your unit to control. He's too chaotic.

lets weight out the pros and cons

pros:
you summon brikthulu
all your troops blow up in massive fire balls (which is awesome)
brikthulu beats everyone else by makeing them blow up

cons
you lose
brikthulu isn't invicibal since his defence dice are only 100 solid gold d20s.
brikthulu hasent got infinate attack and is limited to 100 solidgold d20s for attack
100 solid gold d20s cost alot.


i say even without the last to pros its still worth it.

Brickthulhu does not roll 100d20. Brickthuhlu rolls 09d37.

Also, all of you saying that summoning Brickthuhlu is a defeat need to pay attention to the basic rules of Brikwars. The absolute best-case-scenario is the entire field exploding into a ball of fire, meaning everybody wins. If brickthulhu shows up and proceeds to tear everyone a new one, same concept applies. Victory is not about having the most soldiers left. Victory is about being as cool as possible.
