How quickly can I spawn the Obsidian Invasion ?

How quickly can I spawn the Obsidian Invasion ?

You'll need to have at least 3 hold and then pray to the rng god to get the huge calcite layer event


SmallJon

Oh *that's* what the calcite layer does!


Gilette2000

And it also upgrade your hold three or four time over a short periods of time


owixy

But then you also lose the hold to the obsidian boys


Gilette2000

If you just want to play as the lava boy it's an absolute win and if you have 2-3 ally you can easily beat the invasion and get a big hold out of it ! (And a nice modifier that last 100 years)


Sass-e-nach

So to be clear, does the depth of your hold make any difference to whether this disaster can fire or is it instead linked to having 3 holds and seeing a certain event ?


Gilette2000

The event can fire in any of your non capital hold so I don't think so The more hold you have the more chances you have to get the event I think


Sass-e-nach

So is there any way to accelerate the emergence of the 'strange rumours' ? I got the calcite event and then 100 years went by without the conditions being met to fire the disaster. It's basically pointless now and if I want to actually do an obsidian campaign I'll need to start again.


BrokenCrusader

No but the hold can not be your capital


SuicideByDragon_1

Fastest would be as Company of Blueshield, as you start close to the Shattered crown orcs and can bum rush them as soon as you have your own hold, getting you 4-5 holds in one war.


Hehodas

Those Hold doesn't count toward the total


SuicideByDragon_1

Didn't know that, Though I would still argue Blueshield Company have easiest access to multiple holds.


owixy

Would they count if he didn't use one as his capital?


Hehodas

No

Depending on how much you’re willing to do you can probably console command the Calcite Layer event. Although I’m not sure which event it is, it’s probably in a hold, dwarf, or DiggyDiggy event file.
