My dwarf is going to get a barracks set up during the first season. After that, have him train for a while, I won't be online until late Sunday.

I'm going to assume that those dwarves that have not specified it, will trade "favor" for food and drink from the dwarves that have it to offer.  If the remaining spots have not yet been filled, those dwarves will become the only ones with the hauling/cleaning labors turned on and I'll set them up as farmers with seed stock as well.

I'll be assigning a book-keeper/broker to the fortress using the first available dwarf, which will own the use of an office and dining room from the outset.  Anyone who wishes to take these jobs themselves,  must be able to both demonstrate better skill than the current job holder and pay the fortress a one time fee worth the value of the office and dining area in hard currency, (to be donated to the next caravan from the Mountainhome).


Well, Mr Givens has run long, so I'll be using the last posted save to begin the 1-on-1 fortress now.  Stay tuned for updates.

My computer had a little hiccup last night and I lost the save.  So, we'll be starting over with an entirely new group of seven.  I'll modify the previous post with those new dwarf descriptions and start it up once more without further delay.

OK! Turns out a computer with a faulty fan is one that restarts by itself, dumping any new saves in the process!  However, 3rd time's the charm - This time I'll be saving the file as soon as we embark, then sticking a copy in a zipped file just in case.  I spent most of today fixing the hardware, (well, most of today was spent finding out what the problem was then fixing the problem only took a drive to the computer store for a new part and replacing said part with the new one.

So, I'll start this bad boy up once more, and zip-save each season as it happens.

Actually not that far off the mark.  Substitute internal raving for face slamming and needing a couple Lindsor chocolates before I was calm enough to not "accidentally skip" the machine off the nearest balcony and you'd have it in a nutshell.

Spring Report    -1729-

Our seven founders have arrived finally to the Lonely Mountain.  As the map indicated, the mountain has two peaks, one to the east and one to the west, with a fulminating caldera saddled between them. 

Considering the scroll's advice about a dragon lair nearby, Both Highmax and Darkening Kaos quickly grabbed their pickaxes and began excavating a temporary storage room, magma smithy and barracks. Both digging this out and piling the boulders in a pile was thirsty work, but D. Kaos's generous contribution of about thirty barrels of Dwarven Beer kept everyone from having to drink their own private stores, or go find water to slake their thirst.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
 

Father Vgray spoke some words over our cheerful guzzle, cautioning us to drink enough to slake our thirst -no less and no more-, because Balance was of paramount importance.  We all cheered as he then blessed our impromptu gathering with the holy chop of one hand while draining a flagon of beer in the other - surely Axe will be pleased at what we have started in this place.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

DK has traded on his generosity with the free beer to get the two miners to level off the lesser of the two peaks, which will become the foundation of a great lighthouse he intends to construct there.  We heard all about it on the way here, so we're excited to see it completed.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Soon Highmax's stair will be completely carved from the mountain, situated a full seven cubits deeper into the roots of the mountain, he's assured us that once he gets going that armor, golden coins and especially quality swords will soon be flowing from the mountain, making us all rich and powerful.

With all those riches bursting from our new home, I'll be glad to see Maskwolf training his deadly axe skills, all agleam in his copper finery.  All that the barracks needs is to have his armor stand, weapon rack and cabinet installed and he can begin training in earnest.  It's truly unfortunate that a leprechaun stole his axe out from under everyone's noses.  Fortunately, there are enough boulders lying around that we can construct a Stonecutter's workshop to make a stone anvil, and then use eight stone blocks and that anvil to construct a Rockforge.  Maskwolf will have himself a sharpened obsidian axe to replace the stolen one by this autumn at the very latest.

We've unearthed many varied crystals and gems - a jeweler could have a field day in here.

Dunno.  I'll start up the game and do close-in screen shots of everybody.  Back in a bit.

Also, I figure we'll do one season a week, to give everyone a chance to roleplay here in the forum and give new instructions to me about something they want their dwarf to do/not do.

Here we go: A portrait of the seven founders of The Lonely Mountain.
