Netscape, which I believe is operated by AOL. We've switched to... Arczip, I think. Not really any faster, but we're back online now, at least.

In the week I was gone, I actually got back into DF with a new fortress. My first real experience with the military proved to be... quite amusing (disregarding my military currently only has two members, but they both seem to be Fischer reincarnated for how badly they butcher everything).

I'm happy everyone likes it. I've got a great fear of being locked into a body that I can't control, so it struck a chord. And the loneliness too.

Very nice, Reudh... I can see why you got teary. lol    Nicely done. It'll be hard for us to think of Ashsaber and Softa the same way, now... (by the way, did you see the bit where I asked about Lord Reudh/Vanya?)

Welcome back, Jack Magnus! :) I'd been wondering why you'd disappeared so suddenly... glad those issues are fixed now. Bet you haven't had a very fun time of it, though.



I think I've kind of been procrastinating on the next Vanya post largely because I'm not sure I can do a "good enough" job on it. :\ Reading that Softa story post made me realize - I'm trying to elicit that sort of reaction, and I'm not really sure I can manage it. Thus, I hesitate.   Plus, Urist shows back up, and it feels wrong to do it without Hanslanda's help. But to be completely honest I think the first reason of the two is the main one.

Ah, yes, I saw about the request with Vanya and Reudh. I'll wait to do that until after your update unless it is Vanya's last appearance. Feel free to PM me if you need.

Tal, you'd better write. I don't want to have done the thing with the thing about the thing for nothing. Also, get my pm?

@Talvieno:

Eh, I wouldn't worry about getting a specific emotional response. I don't really think that's the purpose of a story anyways (at least, that's not what I read them for -- I actually hate it when a story tries to manipulate my emotions unless it's really well-done). Vanya's an awesome character and your writing is impeccable. Just keep rockin'.


E: Just noticed this:

This is extremely-rude. Everything Talvieno's done for the thread, he's done in his own free time, because he wanted to, with his only reward being our gratitude. Perhaps I'm overstepping my station here, but I really don't think Talvi should be expected to acquiesce to any outside requests regarding what to do with his time unless we're willing to offer some kind of compensation in return for his services, and seeing a direct demand like this frankly makes me indignant.

Still. Frog has a pretty good point. You aren't the boss bro. :P Just another equal like the rest of us.

I have a perfectly good (if secret) reason. I beg you all to save your irritation. Once revealed, if you don't think my reason was good enough, I'll accept your remonstrations.

I honestly always pictured dorf!Talvi as a humanised (dwarvenised?) version of Applejack :V
I had to look Applejack up, but I think that's about how I pictured Talvi, yeah... just a bit more unhinged.

A'yup. Replace "apples" (and "ponies") with "cavies" and you've got Talvi right there. :P

And Reud, that's some incredibly touching and tragic narrative. Poor Softa...  :'(

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.

@Xahnel:

I don't care what your reason is. You're not in a position to make demands of anyone, no matter the context. If Talvieno judges whatever you apparently want him to do to be worth doing, he'll do it and more power to him, but it's not your decision to make.


@Talvieno:

Sorry for speaking for you, but I couldn't in good faith remain silent on this.

14th Timber 208

Two days ago, we spotted a dwarven caravan on the outskirts of Spearbreakers, along with the outpost liaison Kosoth Rithoddom. Splint's been in conversation with the human law-giver Mori Mobblossomed for the last SEASON, and seems to be getting angrier and angrier. He came to me and told me to lock the doors. I think I know what's going to happen.

16th Timber 208

There's been sounds of scuffles for nearly two days. Splint is yelling and yelling. Crusher grumbles about 'ME ONLY BRUISING HER WHAT GIVES'. Rose is growling... an altogether disturbing sound.

Then, as the first of the merchants made it indoors, a scout told me a vile siege had arrived. A vile siege of what, I asked.

"SPAWN!" he screamed, before passing out.

I heard Splint growl from his room, before yelling out to me.
"SPAWN? REUDH, USE THE SPIKEWALK AND DON'T STUFF IT UP AGAIN!"
Fischer approached me quickly. "Reudh, there's forty of them. Five of them are Elite Wrestlers. Station us here" and she pointed to the front entrance, "and squad two here", pointing to the trade depot itself.
I pulled Mitch's labelled lever, hoping to Armok that it was labelled correctly and didn't open the wrong bridge. I got a peasant to man the spikewalk lever and pull it back and forth.

Now we wait...
