A new embark, eh? Sounds great. :D
 Redorf me as Scruffy, the axedwarf.

(I think that I'm going to try reclaiming the old fort just for the heck of it, though you can just ignore it !!Drunk FORTRESS!! wise)

Eugh.  Okay, that was not as epic as planned, I only made it to the autumn autosave because I became violently ill.  And this is why we remember to eat beforehand, guys.

Uploading save and pictures now, have updated the log to when I stopped.  Highlight - a 5-year-old baby migrant came in the summer wave.  Heh.

Edit: Here is the save!

The new fortress looks interesting. Perhaps I will take a turn after the first few turns.

By the way, I tried reclaiming the old fortress yesterday (consider it an unofficial fortress save that is not part of the real Drunk fortress)
I actually managed to reclaim the whole fort and kill 2 more FBs. (still got two more. I think that they are the tenth and ninth FBs that have invaded that fort)
Also, FB silk socks!

what the hell is w/ Vodka,  who votes for Vodka? we have a ton of international ppl! but shit... beer come on ppl, BEER!!! Vodka is a dirty litte mistress she's sneaky and you don't see her coming. The kettle one commercials are soooo cool. but you are not cool after a bottle of it. and by not cool i mean... the cops will inform you of how 'not cool' you are
This is so true, I don't trust her at all.  Jameson has always been honest with me.

From what I can tell
- We are named after princess Corrido the 4th
- Unicorns are around and we evaded them long enough to dig through the aquifer
- Then a miner found the caverns, and promptly divorced his wife

For my next dwarf, plase:

Posting to watch. By the way, in all seriousness, is getting drunk just to play Dwarf Fortress safe?

I you got really, really drunk, would you get brain damage or something?
(I'm too young to legally drink, I'm 13...) Teachers at school say yes, but if I remember correctly they also say that having sex gives you hallucinations.

EDIT: Why was the last part in a quote? Fixed, anyway...

I'd definitely advise against getting drunk if you're 13.

The brain damage part is actually kind of correct. It's a long-term effect, so getting really wasted once won't permanently impair your brain. It's just problematic if you always drink more than you can handle (especially on brains that are still in development). Thus:
*Important Note: This game is NOT meant to encourage substance abuse or underage drinking. Please participate legally and responsibly.

I wonder if the game has become odd.

Safer than being a dwarf in Drunk Fortress, that much I'm sure of.



On a more serious note, while teachers and D.A.R.E. people are prone to wild exaggerations that lower their overall believability, alcohol and brain development do not mix well at all.
The very very rough way of looking at things is, your brain is still designing itself. Much like a DF fort. Do you really want the designer to be doing it while Dorfenly drunk?  I don't. Our simulations of developing brains being designed by drunks show that it leads to Forgotten Beasts and Wrexation.

The older you get the less new brain is being laid down and the less it matters. At 13 you're much more resistant to damage than you were at 8 for instance. And at 8 you were better off than at 2, and so on.
It's not like it's exactly good for adults, but we have to do it in an excessive and sustained manor to make a meaningful dent in ourselves. As a teenager it's far easier to trash yourself for life.
Don't do it.
Same answer for most drugs, too. I could do without the permanent effects of my 20s.



That was an awful lot of seriousness for the Drunk Fortress thread!
If I can get away with it, I'm going to take a turn thursday fairly early in the day. The goal is to do that and not get yelled at by my Fiance. We'll see how it goes.

If you're below drinking age, you shouldn't drink. And if you MUST, then certainly not to the extents of this thread. So yes, it is dangerous, and no, you shouldn't play Drunk Fortress.

That might be dangerous like opening the third cavern with no military.

I've taken a lot of turns recently, but might join in this weekend if conditions are right.  Last time I got distracted while the save was downloading and forgot to play.
