Somehow, some way, I screwed up big time whilst copying Rose's journey journal. Oh well. You can reads tomorrow. For now: CHESTNUT

Also, my cell phone is broken, so until I get a new one, expect an absence of me, save for when I'm here at the library.

To answer you Xahnel, it is currently the year 207 on the west continent calander.

And now an in character update. The sheer volume of crap laying around is reaking havoc with FPS, but compared to Swordthunders it's livable. That place wasn't so much a madhouse as it was a glorified garbage dump with hateful ghosts.

Sorry for the lack of pictures. Just so little happened in Granite it wasn't worth snapping any. Also to keep clean-up steady the watch towers will need to wait. Anyone who comes to play will just have to meet Fischer instead of the spikewalk.



-This is a cat leather bound journal. All craftsdwarfship is of mediocre quality at best. It is bordered with bands of slate and studded with slate. On the front cover is the name "Splint Lokumeshesh" in slate. On the front cover is an image of crossed pikes behind a shield in slate. On the back cover is an image of an elephant in elephant ivory. The elephant is depicted in a pool of liquid and screaming. The elephant is melting. It shows signs of wear and now has an iron chain attached to the spine, likely to be carried over the shoulder. The chain appears to be slightly rusted.


1st Granite, year 207. Second term of office as overseer of Lokumokab, Spearbreakers.

It's been some time since I picked you up journal. Too long a time in fact. Paintbrush asked me if I'd like to take over, since the trials of battle are beginning to wear him down. I agreed, if only to correct my many mistakes in the past. I've decided that, in light of how many skulkers turned out at the main celebration, to dig a barracks for them as a gesture of good will.

We also have a single Holistic Warrior perched in our grounds and have dispatched a soldier named Awl to dispose of it. I'm confident he will take care of it, as he earned a title for himself in the battles here amongst his fellow pikedwarves.

3rd Granite, 207.

With his victory this morning, Awl raised his sky blue pike high in the air and proclimed himself Awl Steelcrazy, The Warm Bastion of Gullys, a master of the pike!



[When he struck down the wrestler it stated he bacame a pikemaster. Badass timing. His name was Sigun at the time. Just wanted him to have a different name, so based it on the Awl Pike.]


12th Granite, 207.

Clean up is still slow going and Codyorr said he saw a hand running around up on the hill much of the fortress was built into. I have dispatched Fischer to investigate, and kill the cocksucker responsible.

15th Granite, 207.

Cleanup is still slow going, and that bastard is still roaming around. The original entrance has been finished and rehooded to it's old lever in what used to be the furnishings workbay. Speaking of which, I seem to be the only one willing to risk lives to save on space. While I care for everyone here deeply, I don't want us using more material than is needed to get things done.

Also a few undead are blundering about, and nobody seems to really care anymore, simply going about cleaning up the mess and more or less just kind of pushing them aside and going about thier day. I've deployed 1st and 2nd Squads in a pattern to funnel the bastard, because he has to be somewhere he can see the bodies he's reanimating. Hopefully he'll be dead soon enough. I've also issued orders to Solpyre to dig out a new cage storage, and for a barracks to be dug into the space next to the depot. I've also issued an order to begin making more mugs and a few hundred blocks so we can begin constructing a proper fortress to house the army.

On that note, and true to my word, I have given the military extended leave, so they may recover from this ordeal, and to assist in cleaning up the mess, save for Colonel Fischer's platoon.

On a personal note.... I know it's wrong but I've requested my rooms be finished. Mr Frog said he saw plenty of spare furniture, so I've opted to bring it in myself once the floors are finished.

-a little rushed, but there's thunder and I needed to save the game just in case and post this before my power cut out.

@Mr Frog: The Spearbreakers thread closely resembles the Spearbreakers fortress: everyone doing their own thing, nothing getting done, everything in chaos and it's up to one poor sod to figure out how to wrestle it into something resembling order. Humorously,
If we didn't have Talvieno organizing the important posts, I'd be a lot more aggressive about keeping the thread uncluttered. Can't say I envy Talvi, though.
this may soon be you. I've reached 35k of the 40k character limit in the second post... which was originally why I kept the titles short, but everybody seemed to like the longer ones. :P I suppose I could just edit everything and send an updated third post regularly (weekly?) to Splint so he can modify it, but.... I don't know how he'd like that cluttering up his inbox.


Xahnel, awesome depiction of Chestnut. :D    Am I correct in thinking that you were the one who drew the original Rose?


Splint, I would've liked to have seen what you did with the original Splint/Talvieno entrance... Would've been worth a picture, I think. I was going to make the loopy path a lot, lot longer, with plenty of room for archers in the tower to fire at idiots bumbling past. OH, and if we could maybe capture some mountain barbarians or goblins in cages to use for sport (feed to Ashsaber/Softa, as I doubt our soldiers could use the training), that'd be awesome.
I don't envy you the cleanup job outside. And hooray for skulkers. :D Out of curiosity, how many of our soldiers have titles at this point? Awl's mano a mano combat with the Spawn was awesome.

Awl  fucking scared me to be honest. And I didn't look (thunder still, don't wanna chance it.) Awl literally beat the shit out of it. It only got in a few swings before his pike shattered its heart.

And I don't mind the inbox clutter. I appreciate any and all assistance.

more joruny long fucking walks in spawn infested territory logs, finished Art of bukit (with and without armor) will try to post soon.

By armok. Bukit kept walking and walking trough the blood covered plane, but alas. No sign of the fabled fort. he sat on a rock to rest, took is helmet and gloves off. And started to scribble, a self portrait of sorts. He drew himself, a miner,the spawn, and the fabled holistic. The children were crying, there boots soaked in the unholy liquid. His once pure white armor was now bloody and stained. He got up and kept walking

I hope you put the order on repeat, and don't remind the next overseer to turn it off.

@Talvi:

I'd be happy to pick up where you leave off, but it may also be feasible to just hijack another of your own posts (or create a new one wholesale) and link to that one in your first. Whenever I had to collate everything, I invariably wound up dragging my feet after a bit, and I'd rather not leave it to myself indefinitely.

Its actually a frog, and no. He is just in a hyper-paranoid state where everyday objects he sees are hallucinated into things that are mocking him. the torch turns into the skull, the elf ear into a elf, and the random bone on the floor into an entire hand trying to kill him.
