Approximately what material level should TES style weapon glass and ebony be? 
(i.e. pure mithril/wolfram tier or damasc/orichalcum/deepbronze tier?)

I guess "worse than steel" is an option too, but I'd rather go more for "different than steel"

Ebony being the TES version of Slade, with Deadric being simply Ebony infused with deadra souls, I would say Ebony is quite heavy and good. And weapon glass => green volcanic glass?

I'd say its up to you. It souldnt be better then the best metal, because glass is endless. I prefer to use carbon copies, or +-20% strength, simply to give people an idea what it is. Steel. Ok, everyone knows steel. Rusty steel? Its steel -20%.

It depends on what kind of extra ingredients you need. If its per definition unlimited (fuel, plant-mats, sand, animal mats, wood, common rock) then it should be either very slow to make, or not powerful. If its rare materials (special gems, orcish magic, raids) then make it good. I personally would think it a nice addition if it can replace the metal industry in a way. You dont have steel/mithril/whatever, you can make glass without mining for it. Surface stuff only as ingredients.

Exactly, that's kind of my thoughts too.  A bit complex to make but very different supply chain from steel and mostly surface-friendly. 

Also, I haven't decided whether the Ashland Glassblower is *only* available if you have the "Evil Elves" trade partner to acquire the blueprint from, or should there be alternate paths.  Anyone have a strong preference?  (of course this kind of detail is easy to change later)

Here's my first cut at the materials properties

A preview of the upcoming changes to "Evil Traders"
Feedback welcome.

The ability to sell you blueprints is already in 1.2.0, for that matter, the Caravanserai and your home Taiga civ will also sell you the blueprints to these new mid-game type buildings.

The other stuff isn't in the available download yet, for the simple reason that I have no idea how exactly we're going to integrate it into the mod :D as my prototype testing version changes MDF files.

add flavor/interesting castes

That one would need specific graphics as well, otherwise it makes judging siegestrength very difficult. You know that trick with profession specific sprites for siegers?

The rest looks fine, I would include it into Masterwork even for the normal dwarf/kobolds mode. :)

Quote from: Nakao
Hi guys, I generated/embarked on a nice map with warriors Orc embark profile, I uploaded it here for you to see/use it.
It's done embark everywhere, on DF MW 2h, featuring a going-to-conquer Pandashi Castle, with wavy ocean and a nice circular natural pit-hole to put prisoners in.

I also have some questions:

This map is missing the river, I don't have experience with Orcs, is it secure death because they don't dig ? Or they do if they have a pick ?

Why are Pandashi not attackable in the beginning ? They result to be all (tame) except their king. Killing the king makes everyone hostile.
This never happened to me in Vanilla, even for good civilization Embark Everywhere(s). I embarked on elves before.

Also I note a little bug, in the caverns below, looking down BEFORE going down digging, I can see fishes moving a black - unknown area. At level -30.
Again, this never happened to me in Vanilla.

Sounds like another nice embark you found!
Orcs can dig.  Warband embark should have 1 or 2 picks, does it not?

I don't know anything about Embark Anywhere, but note that Fortress Defense civilizations don't speak, don't have diplomatic relations of any kind, this is why they send hostile armies to both Dwarves and Orcs, so I don't know if that makes a difference.  Elves is not a valid comparison.

cavern creatures, Are they fireflys?  If so that's a MDF feature, not a bug (Meph does you a favor by using fireflies to show where the caverns are).  Otherwise you need to tell us what creature it is specifically if I'm going to look into it :)  But Orc fortress does not add fishes or any other vermin.

For the sake of completion, I give here the url of my embark/save:

Thank you for the kind answers !

Unortunately the 4 months that took me to understand how to go down to second cavern (only source of water) was a really bad start (and few cases of starvation to death), because of the amazing-fast FPS time passed very fast.
The Orcs were not digging for some reason, but after a while and some combact with the Pandashi I found the right tool.

The fishes flying into nothing (unrevealed terrain) are not described by look or view commands, they are in the third cavern (under my actual home, in second).

Now I'm studying the manual and trying to make a small fort, with the 4 survivors + 4 fresh migrants.

Every creature that generates light can be seen even in undiscovered terrain. I put some vermin into every cavern lvl to help people find them before they dig them open. Since they are vermin they have no pathfinding and dont affect fps negatively.

That's very clever, thanks ;)
Indeed, in my case, I would have starved to death without that shiny fireflies.

This embark is just a crazy idea anyway, expecially with the new 1.2 coming to stable ;)

Infact I have another question: in DF MW 2h, there is still Orc Fortress 1.02 right ?

That's right.  It's not always perfect, but I try to keep the versions explained up to date in the first post of this thread.

It was clear, I just needed a confirm that the game I just started is "old", I'll wait for next release ;)

I do like orcs, they have all Dwarf stuff, a little less metal industry, but a lot of other funny stuff.

smakemupagus, I just wanted to say I'm really enjoying the mod (In fact, voicing that fact is what inspired me to join the forum properly  :P) I'm loving the addition of bone furniture, particularly beds, not only because most of my wood goes into making raiding ships and charcoal, but also because of the image of my swordmaster Uraks kicking back after a long day's slaughter on the remains of their past kills :D
Both you and Meph are heroes in my book  :P

Hey, smake, how do you see the orcs?

I like to see them as honourbound warriors, standing for what their culture signifies against the menace of the unfeeling dwarves, vindictive elves, expansionist humans and depraved drow.
