The Littlest Cheesemaker-Updated 3/30 (Start of Chapter 4)
« Reply #3210 on: March 30, 2015, 02:48:16 pm »




































You are the young girl hiding behind the animal pens.

You have recently snuck away from your Mountainhome to join the Glorious Dwarven Fortress of Shielddawn, and as it turns out that may have been a poor decision on your part. 

So far you've witnessed six murders, the undead walking the earth, a garbage heap filled with bodies, and you've been relegated to hauling duties.  It's all starting to take its toll on your fragile dwarven psyche.  Yes, you came to Shielddawn to become the Greatest Cheesemaker in all of the Three Dwarven Kingdoms, but now it's starting to seem like maybe your dream was maybe just a tiny bit...foolish.









This cow is also you; a dumb animal penned behind stone walls with no choice in their destiny, doomed to be slaughtered in some pointless and incredibly stupid fashion.

Your dad was right.  Fortresses aren't anything like the Mountainhomes.










"I don't know what I was thinking," you say to the cow.  "This whole thing was dumb.  No one here seems to care about...anything!  Not cheese, not the elves, not...me.  All they care about is...I don't know.  Blood?  That's what the nun made it sound like.  Blood and murder and corpse piles and fighting and...blood."









"Everyone always told me about how amazing the fortresses were - Shielddawn especially! - but it's like the fortress doesn't even care about the dwarves who built it!  The Overseer lady didn't care that I want to be a cheesemaker, all she cared about was finishing her turn and retiring.  And now I'm a hauler and the only job they're going to give me is hauling! Hauling and hauling and hauling and hauling some more and I'm never going to become a cheesemaker and dad was right and I hate everything about this place and I've been here for...what, less than a day?!"  You slump forward.












"Yeah, well, try sticking around for a year," the cow mutters back.
















...

I knew from the point where it said "You said to the cow" the cow was going to reply... and he did. :D

The best way to demonstrate it to him is take a save of 40 year old fortress with 150 dwarves in it on a good sized embark with a volcano that just breached the circus and install it on his gaming rig and watch it bring his rig to its knees.

Wait. Maybe I'm looking too much into it, but think about it. Holy symbol in the air, talking cow, cows make milk, milk makes cheese, clearly Cowsea sent us a sign! Either that or it was just a gag.

My school blocks the gifs, but the images are just fine. I'll be able to see the gifs when I get home.

Try refreshing and waiting.

Offer to milk cow. Then hide the milk and try to make it into cheese in secret.

Try to adopt the cow as a pet.

^This works too

Secretly train the cow into a war cow and discover your true talent is animal training.

Oh wow, that's a nice feeling. I read this thing just today and I find out that it also Updated today.

The art reminds me very heavily of Prequel. Very nice.

BTW several of your 'next' links are broken.

Do you still take dwarf names I'd like to import the one I had in Towersoared

Welcome! New readers are always cool!

Prequel gave me the motivation to do my own story. TLCM probably wouldn't exist if I hadn't realized that other people did this sort of stuff.

Which links are broken? I was rushed and slapped them down in ten minutes.

I'll have the opportunity to allow a few more dwarfed characters pretty soon.  We'll probably do what we did last time and fanart-contest it.

But... I can't draw?

Pretty much anything counts. A poem, short story, sculpture, interpretive dance, etc.
