We can use the current one. I like the big trees and slightly smarter dorfs.

Oh, Fake floor is where you construct sections of floor so that their only support is a central column. Then it works on pretty much the same principle as a combination of a fall trap and a rigged ceiling.

I proposed a mine field of such devices....

I say upright-spike Dodge-Me trap with more upright spikes in the bottom. And upright spikes in the dining room, because why not.
I'm with Mr Frog on this one.

edit: We also need spikes in the containment cells. Just in case some poor fool gets bitten.

Certainly you could argue that DF is a lot like The Sims, only... you know... with more vomit and decapitation.
If you launch a wooden mine cart towards the ocean at a sufficient speed, you can have your entire dwarf sail away in an ark.

You'd still need a grate, a hatch, or a bridge to get onto the suspended section of flooring (not really so much a fake floor as a suspended one, really)

Not quite... Yours was floating flooring. His drops the dude instead of dropping stuff on top of him.

Agreed. Definitely agreed. On both counts. I especially like the idea of the spikes in the dining room - maybe we could skimp on the defenses and do that instead. (then again, I've almost been out to destroy the fort since day 1 - if I'd had my way, the spawn would have trances)

I was bored and wrote a legend about how the new world came to be in relation to Everoc. Should I post it? it has quite a few plot points that might be for overseers to decide

Sure thing.

Mr Frog has already solidified this as an "Instance" of a possible divergant number of alternate histories, so go for it.

I approve of this. While not quite in line with my own idea, a bunch of us all concocted theories, and this I approve of.

Hmmm... I like it. It kind of lacks the hilarity mine had (largely thanks to SolPyre), but I think it makes up for it with not needing to discredit anyone... It makes sense. Well done. :) +1 to you, sir.

Been reading this fort for the last few days. Loving it so far!

MUGS MUST FLOW.

Anywho, Mr Frog, any chance you can link that tileset you're using? I'd like to try it on my desktop compie at some point.

I've also been inspired to copy some of the fort layout in my own forts ^.^

@TapeNoot:

I'll get around to uploading it somewhere eventually. I can't really ignore a direct request :p I'll look into it sometime tonight.

The general layout of Spearbreakers is directly on the border between genius and pants-on-head, socks-on-ears, multiple-crayons-in-each-nostril insanity. Replicate at your own risk.

EDIT: Okelie-dokelie. I've gotten my tileset uploaded for anyone who wants to use it. The link's in my sig.

Awesome, the Official Frogfont. lol   It really does look pretty good. =P

Also, welcome to Spearbreakers, TapeNoot. It's like Hotel California, but the terror is from simply being here. :D

And yes, MOAR MUGS.


How's that update coming, Draignean? Everything okay on your end?

edit: Splint, should I throw together a section in the second post with all the theories of how Spearbreakers could exist? We talked of making that at one point.

I don't see why not, though Mr Frog might wanna do that so we can save space for entries on yours. I really wish I had reserved a couple spots for that myself.... But we're working like a semi-neglected machine now and that's awesome.

I'm up for it. It'll be a bitch trawling the thread looking for things that look like theories, but I suppose it's for a good cause. I'll get started on it at some point.
