For Glory and Adamantine: Steelbeard II


Xah Tadin
"The Dimensions of Enchanting"

This is a succession game for writers, the goal of which is to create a nice little narrative.

Rules are simple: A turn is 1 year, spring to spring. Overseers should take no more than 1 week real time to finish a turn. If you decide to end your turn early, the overseer after you plays the remainder of your turn plus his full year.

I am going with my standard rollout: 2 miners(I'll play as one), 1 trader, 1 woodcutter, 1 mason, 1 craftsdwarf, 1 farmer.

Spoiler: Overseer History (click to show/hide)

The overseer will be chosen Bronzestabbed-style: At the end of the turn, everyone interested submits bids. One player is randomly chosen to be the next Overseer. This makes it so that the next overseer will always be available to play.

Oh, forgot to mention: If this goes on long enough and I can find web hosting, I'll turn this into an archive-style series of web pages or a PDF.

as to the archive, with so many different players, what we could do is when one fortress becomes the victim of "fun", the surviving overseers could move to a new site in the same world, and we could perhaps come back to try to reclaim fortresses on down the line.

Excellent idea.

That world looks like it was victim to a global warming. I may toss my hat into the ring once a soldierdorf pops up.

Dwarf me as the farmer and add me on the turn list as well. I'll take a crack at it

I would like to take on the identity of the first crafts dwarf. As crafting and selling crafts is my specialty, I will use it as part of my year's run down.

In other news, my own fortress of Thumolin has seen two years of silence from the goblins. my general is getting antsy that they are planning an even larger assault. Time to go back to drafting some military dwarves again. lol

I might know a website that will do a good job of working as a host for free. I saw it a few months ago whilst stumbling around the internet. Will do some research :)

Any idea when you'll be starting the game, out of curiosity?

what does the embark location have on the screen?

That would be useful to know for us to plan our own strategies. Of course, if we are to find out through the narrative, that is ok :)
