2:02 So tempting...

2:04 of fuck what have i dopne? What kind of idiot would make a lever drop supiorts on stuff? Oh

2:06 Scuffy has gone stark raving made. Er, one of tje Scruffies. Sertiouysly there's like 2 or
Scruffy has been miserable lately. He has suffered the travesty of art defacement. He was forced to watch his 5z magmaheated apartment complex collapse and burn.
Aww. :'( I hoped that it would last longer. It is just too tempting NOT to place a lever on such a project.

Good turn though. So, both Scruffies are insane? One berserk inside a small wooden cage and other stark raving mad and dead?

Finagle's law in action.

It's funny, though.

I'm... frankly surprised that the fortress is still going. :o (Ok, technically the fort will survive as long as the vampire stays locked in his one-tile cell, but you know what I mean.)

Edited my earlier post to include the save, so yay.

I blame you for giving me prime Schmuck Bait when it's the first time I'd ever been that drunk. ;A;

The man does make a very good point, Scruffy...

on another matter I will probably take a turn Monday.

If someone doesn't kill off the fort beforehand, of course.

Too much win has happened since I last read this thread (was out of town for a week) to quote it all. Suffice to say I just spent quite a bit of time laughing reading it all :D

I'm gonna hope the next person manages a full year since I only made it to spring. Ideally without finding the hard way what any of those other levers do.

And I just realized that magma gun might backfire hilariously if it can flow through the fortifications in front of the entryway.

Also, anyone know why all the tiles were screwed up on my turn? O.o

I was using a graphics pack on my turn, those tend to mess with tiles.  (I think it was Phoebus... one of those that come with the Lazy Newb Pack, anyway.)

You could've probably fixed it by replacing the "raw" folder inside the save with the vanilla DF version.  Or by using LNP and choosing "Default ASCII" as the graphics.

Just noticed an interesting little thing.
If you sort the threads in community games & stories by the amount of views !!DRUNK FORTRESS!! is number 21 of the threads posted during the last 5 years. 21st of 2742. Just behind the wellknown megathreads

I'm on my way to TJ's to pick up a couple bottles of chuck, then I'll be preparing for a round tonight.

EDIT: Ok, I've popped the cork of this merlot. Because I'm a trashy drinker, I'm gonna be havign thiss tuff right out of the bottle, and will be measuring my wine intake with the rather dubious measurement of "fingers," i.e. finger width. As evidenced by the string of typos int he preiovus sentence (and this one, christ) I'm already three fingers in. The save is downloading now.

Also, I was pretty terrible about following the rules of the thread during my last turn - I'll do better this time.

EDIT 2: For my own reference, these are the curretn standing rules:
  • Every single time you order a batch of booze to be made (by manager or directly in still), finish your drink. (Naryar)
  • At least once per season, you must sacrifice a creature to Armok by dropping it down the chute. (Vyznev)

Uh oh. That first one could cause some trouble if I take it RAW. We'll see what happens.

8:42 - in the hopes that I might repel the goblins, I sent out the only squad we have. it ended - well, youc an see for yourself.

Ouch. So much for that partially-filled marksdwarf squad I drafted, I'm guessing? If they weren't pathing up towards the entryway like they should, I would've suggested luring them near, then hitting that "sdeal off the front gate" lever I made and let the goblins eat bolt. o3o

In any case, seems we've officially doomed overseers to a perpetual curse of partially-finished years. ;A;

If I recall correctly, most of those marksdwarves were killed when I inadvertently flooded the entry corridor with magma.
