LostPages - Community Fortress
« on: August 22, 2012, 02:23:54 pm »

Well time for another community fortress. The king has declared that for the 100th anniversary of the mountainhome's founding a new civilization will form for the greater glory of The Mint Rack.

You have your choice of gender, role and the first 6 get to choose some starting materials. Don't go too expensive, but if you want to be a steel plated guard it can be arranged.

A few specific roles need to be assigned from the first group

- Head assistant: The right hand dwarf of the expedition leader, and bookeeper.
- Doctor: Can have other jobs, but will be assigned CMD (Chief Medical Dwarf) and cannot be military
- Broker: Will have other jobs, but will not be military.
- Head of the Military: Will likely spend most time training.
- Manager: Can be in military as they wish or will have other work elsewhere
- Guard Captain: Will need other work most likely.


Current Dwarves
----------------
Kate - Expedition Fearless Leader
NESgamer190 - Chief Medical Dwarf
Gar - Broker & Jeweler
Blade - Weaponsmith & Brewer
AussieEvil -  Manager, Mason & Engraver
Tau - Head of the Military
GoombaGeek -

Supplies Requested
------------------
A couple of cats
Stone
Copper ore
Anvil
Armor & Axe
*Unspecified until prefs available*


The story:
----------------------------------------------------------------
Each dwarf recieved a letter reading:
Quote
You have been selected to form a new mountainhome for the greater glory of
The Mint Rack. This honour has been bestowed upon you by King Aban
Treatykindled himself. You will go with six other dwarves to the south. Your
wagon will travel for one year, and upon the 1st day of the year 100 you
will stop wherever you happen to be, and there you will found LostPages.
I am leaving you in the capable hands of Kate, one of my most trusted
scholars. She will guide you in your endevors there. Please pack reasonably
lightly, as the trip is long and we can only allocate a single wagon to your
expedition.

Unknown to the others, Kate received this letter several months earlier:
Quote
Kate, unless you have found any thing in your current endeavors, return immediately. We have found a much more solid lead in the south. It seems in the frozen wastes to the south a taint is growing.  This is the territory of the Ashen Stockade, so we must step carefully, and ensure our true intentions are not discovered.

Thus you will be leading an expedition to the south, where you will found a new colony. Do your research discretely, and report back to me every year. I will have a caravan sent to you in order to maintain contact.

I will give you more details in person when you arrive.

Your Lord and Master,
Aban Treatykindled

Broker/Jeweller, please. Name him Gar and let him cut and encrust on repeat - well, when there is no need in trading.
Will make some demands later, when/if I'll see his preferences

Bumping this up a bit, we are still looking for 2 more dwarves to start off.

Also Blade and AussieEvil, if you have any preferences to gender make sure to state them.

Sign me up for the military dorf, just call him Tau. As for the equipment, as long as I've got a helm and an axe, I'm happy. Other armor is up to you. ;)

GoombaGeek as the name or something else? And any specific professions or possessions you want to bring along?

None yet, you can choose as you wish. I would like you to take up the bookkeeper and Head Assistant position if you are up for it. But its up to you if you want to take those up along with your dwarf's original profession, which is entirely up to you.

Oh, bronze bins of nickel silver chains would just make Gar extremly happy! Decorated with river otter tooth and echidna leather, encrusted with cinnamon grossulars and cut realgar.
Please please, can we get at least one item of each?
