Welcome to <<Tarkuurb'narkuub Ghoshash Snazaga>>,
"Perplexing-complexity the Cleaver of Ignorance"


I am Thrakha'zaguul.  The "White Axe".  My father was one of the clanguard, the right fist of the warchief, and served proudly for many years.  I am his third son.  Yesterday my brothers and I were each called to meet our new clanleader.  To me he appears young and foolish.  In the council room were many wizened old orcs and many tapestries containing our histories.  Some of the older orcs looked very wise, but they were silent.

To my eldest brother Ashaash, the clanleader spoke:  "You must take on the role of the Avenger.  Take this chest of gold and equip a warband, to smite our foes with vengeance."

To my second brother Yagduum, the clanleader spoke:  "You must take on the role of the Huscarl.  Take this chest of silver and equip the clanguard, to defend our homeland with honor."

To myself, the clanleader spoke:  "Our lands are too few for third sons.  If you wish a place in the world you must rend it from the wilds.  Take this sack of iron coins, gather the outcasts of lesser families to yourself, and leave our borders by next new-moon."  Still the wise orcs were silent.

----OOC -----

I will use this story as sort of a mini-tutorial for Orc Fortress.  Feel free to jump in with suggestions, questions, or whatever, either in or out of character.  Any characters besides Thrakha are open for 'orking'. 

We are playing Orc Fortress 1.01 for MDF2f with these settings.

Can I get Orc'ed as a Smith-caste guy if there are any in the 7? Otherwise Ronin, Uruk or Corsair in that order of priority.

BTW, looking awesome.

EDIT: Male Orc, please.

Forest with thin soil.

I like this idea of a fort tutorial, also I'd like to be orc'd I don't mind which type or job.

In a hole in the ground there lived a dwarf. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a dwarf fortress, and that means magma.

Looking forward to reading more! If you have a spot for another Uruk or Ronin Male, I'd like to be Orc'ed.

I've been playing Orc Fortress for the past week so watching this will do me some good. Could I be Orc'd? A crafter of some sorts would be my preference.

In the starting 7 besides Thrakha there is one male snaga; and 5 females (2 snaga, 1 orc, 1 dreamwalker, 1 corsair).
So, those who were very specific about caste or gender are likely to be immigrants :)

Dib on the male snaga! A bow, some jagged arrows, and food will flow!

Ok, as I suddenly found myself about to get orc'ed, get me a dreamwalker with a prospect of becoming a sorcerer. ;D

No slag pit?

Nah, Dwarven slag pit is not really to my tastes, anyway Orc Fortress already had its own implementation of slag (rusty iron).

Sorry for pressing you into service as an orc but sounds like you are OK with it after all.  I fully intended to draft Meph after his comment about elves but in your case it was an honest mistake ;)
