A thief has stolen a masterwork steel longsword!

A thief has collapsed from the weight!

CoraiUnki has been knocked unconscious!

Well, just for fun... I decided to make a fortress in DF - with everybody in this thread. Just like in the OP. ...At least, everybody I didn't accidentally miss.

Fifty-seven people crazily transported to dwarfworld via a bizarre copy of DFHack (I used dfusion - simple_embark)... all Bay12'ers:


On the dolomite wall of a deep, dark hallway, beautifully covered with swirling, artistic engravings of laptops, computers, iPhones and pixelated smiley faces, there exists a blank patch. On this blank patch is a long section of beautifully engraved handwriting - labeled at the top in large cursive letters engraved with great care into the living stone: "The journal of Talvieno Violencelashes, dictated by himself, and engraved by Fen Wheeldreamy." It looks as if it hasn't been touched for a long time, and curiously you brush your fingertips over the strange lettering, wondering how such odd fonts came to be in a land of dwarves and elves. Holding your lantern closer to the wall, you begin to read.

I must also ask what a woman's scorn feels like. No one takes me seriously enough to waste perfectly good scorn, unfortunately.

I agree completely; couldn't piss anyone off to save my life, as odd as that would be...

You mean to say that after six months I was still living in a dorm room?

None of you would be alive.

Hey, its real-time what hes getting at, it would take YEARS just for a entire squad of legendaries to get your temple built.

Bah! You wouldn't be able to kill me, I'd take my own life if it meant no one else got the kill.

Oh... Right.

Kiss Ass

It would take six months for a team of 10 legendary miners just to excavate enough dorms for this community, and a year for them to be smoothed or furnished if half the population were working on it. It would then take a year for any temple worth anything to any sort of deity to be excavated without fear of collapsing the roof, and more than two to smooth and engrave everything.

Quit yackin about our work rates, or you can help out!

Just got the bloody magma forges dug out and some dumbass just had to stand in the middle of the magma. Now we're working on the catacombs for the lot of ya that will tantrum!

I don't want excuses, I want results!

I don't need a temple right away, naturally it should be high on the priorities list, but that's besides the point.
I just need my own little personal space and a door.

Come to think of it, you'd all best have locking doors.

Corai, thanks. :P Thank you, too, Loud Whispers. :D As to continuing it, I don't know. My laptop crashed right after I got it uploaded and I lost most (not all) of the save - the last time I'd saved it was in the middle of spring. If you didn't mind a possible story change (I'd keep it as close as possible), I could continue. And if enough people want me to continue, that is.

Corai - you hung around the wagon most of the time. :-\ I tried to keep the skill sets as close as possible to what was described in the thread. We never went below 10 idlers, actually. (so many people decided to say they were "useless"...  ::) lol)

KodKod - really sorry. Eric Blank and Talvieno were just beginning miners when they "arrived". I barely had time to do what I did, and despite having 4-5 miners, I only have two picks. If it makes you feel any better, the bedrooms were up next. I thought about adding that the women especially were upset about the room situation, but decided against it for one reason or another.


Eric Blank, Lol. (hoping the "kiss ass" wasn't at me) Your dwarf and mine were the first two to grab picks, so we were the miners.


EDIT: Oh, and KodKod... When you play DF, you start with 7 dwarves and an ample supply of food. lol    When I started it today, I had 57 dwarves, the greater majority of them were skill-less, and I had just as much food as someone would normally start with - about 50. To feed 57 people. I honestly can't believe we survived - we almost starved. Not quite, but almost. Carving out 7 small bedrooms in six months is one thing. Carving out 57 in six months is very, very different. Especially if you have no idea what you're doing.
