These are some preliminary findings in my research into the real history of the Tcho-tcho and related tribes in Central and Southeast Asia. I hope you forgive me if you find them rough. Let me begin by taking on the idea of reptilian descent. The appropriate remark for this is: "In the beginnings of time, Chaugnar Faugn made a race of beings to serve it, the Miri Nigri , a race of dark dwarfs fashioned from the flesh of primitive amphibians. The Tcho-tcho are said to have intermingled with the descendants of that hybrid race. This is a typical origin myth, no matter where it is found. You have a god that creates a special race, imbued with a magical nature see the parallel of elves and dwarves in Norse mythology, fairy folk, etc , that mates with and breeds the tribe of followers. The most familiar parallel for this in the West is the Eden story.
IT’S A NEW FACTION
TCHO TCHO TURTLING
Please note: unless otherwise stated paid add ons from the Kickstarter Campaign are not included. It does include all the balance changes. Their tactics and tricks are unchanged, save for the fact that your opponents do not know who you are. The Leng Tribe The Leng tribe has some nasty surprises up their sleeves. Unlike Tsang, you have no unique movement ability, but you need to move your strategy, so you have to use your multiplicity of high priests to get enough power for those moves. An enemy player has to choose one of his acolytes, and swap it out for one of your Proto-Shoggoths. Does double-duty, by killing an enemy acolyte and bringing out a proto-shoggoth at the same time.
The Tcho-Tcho People are a group of tribes of near-human Asian natives. They are genetically from humans, they are notably smaller, have livid red skin, and other marked physiological differences. Legends point to prehistoric genetic engineering of pre-human ancestors by the Great Old Ones Zhar and Lloigor. These legends purport they "grew from the 'seeds' of the Twin Obscenities".
For some weeks we have been listening to you, and analyzing the experience people have with the Tcho-Tchos. The conclusions we have reached are threefold. First, as a new faction, many people are unprepared to deal with them, and suffer initial defeats. Then there is a natural tendency to fear the Tcho-Tcho advantages, or at least to fail to capitalize fully on their weaknesses. This is exacerbated by the fact that the Tcho-Tchos are actually pretty easy to master, so their players are up to snuff sooner than their opponents can figure out how to stop them. This aspect of the Tcho-Tchos I am not going to change. Indeed, I am proud of it.
