the newb returns - single thread edition
« on: August 11, 2021, 10:35:22 pm »

I decided to compress everything into a single thread from now on, just to make things easier. Sorry about the previous two posts, I entirely forgot the purpose of forum threads, somehow.

After the complete disaster that was my previous fort, I’m trying again!

Oh yeah, also it’s in this world. Again.

See here for the first post in this series.

Post Table of Contents
Archive of my first two threads in the previous fort (goodness I'm so sorry)
Part 2 of the current fort: Welcome to the Cage Zone
Part 3: Torment of Trolls
Part 4: Cheater Elf

I don’t even know what to say. This is a trip, that’s for sure.




Spoiler: Guardian of the Forest (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: War! (click to show/hide)

And that’s where I’m at right now. Thoughts? Any ideas on what can I do to not die terribly during my next session?

I know the game is fairly normal so far, and honestly I’m not surprised, given how I haven’t declared war on any necromancer towers or anything yet.

I’m considering turning this into a succession game. Would anyone be interested in that?

Thanks y’all,
Urist mcOverusedJoke

I've decided to archive these posts because they shouldn't be in separate threads anyway, so here you go I guess.

Good job on surviving so far.

You might have to send out a suicidal dwarf with a spear to poke at trolls.

Thanks! Would the poor Dwarf allow me to bait the trolls to my cage traps? Do they even work on trolls?

Hm, a review of the wikipage shows that you could probably lure Trolls with a building.  The Cage Traps should work, if the Trolls don't break them before they trigger.

First Post in thread.

Things have been going """well""".


That's actually all I have for now, thankfully. I'm planning to set up a longer trap corridor full of silver mace/warhammer weapon traps, and also to expand my military drastically. Maybe I can start taking the fight to them?

Thanks for reading,
Urist mcOverusedJoke

Things have been... interesting.

Hey, you shouldn't scare off Your New Monarch like that!

...because, yeah, if you're the last fortress in existence, the Necromancer Boss of Crime might just be your sovereign.  Over at The Colorless Home, we've got a Necromancer Mayor.  I don't *think* its lead to anything weird...

In retrospect, there hasn’t been any reason to think I’m the only dwarf fort left on the planet. I’m still getting migrant waves and I don’t have access to the “monarch” noble role yet.

ON THE OTHER HAND the last migrant wave only had 1 (one!!!) dwarf, which I don’t think is normal.

Also, at least 50 dwarves worship the God of Death. I’m considering arranging… accidents… for them. Maybe they can join their god that way.

Edit: It’s okay that I’m posting updates as replies, right? I’m considering changing to edits because then I’m not clogging up the top of the forum board with updates

It is normal to post updates as replies, so don't worry about it.

Fort is running at 21 FPS, the ground is having a panic attack in places, and what looks like a conga line of zombified Hungry Heads has formed on (I think) Z-level 32 of the caverns.
I love dwarven status reports.

You sort of have to post updates as replies, so the topic shows as new/unread.  Edits make the topic appear as if nothing has updated.

I mean, yeah. I think I was just confused by the number of threads on the board with relatively low reply counts.
