Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

Can I ask for a turn? I would like a turn. I know I am working on another fort atm but I noticed two criminal acts in this fort. first. cult/conspiratory activity fell below acceptable minimum, second [Statement Retracted by Regenreich Intelligence Agency]. I plan to fix both, if I am allowed.

This is mostly due to my lack of time to post and my lack of ideas.  Your entrance to the fort will help greatly.

Welcome to Doomforests, please, choose a cult of your liking or head to the overseers office to register your own cult. Religious freedom is pride of this fortress!

Dark Two's fate turned out even better though, so I'm staying a goody knight for now.

Journal of Dark Two

This is a day of our triumph! We're preparing to make an oath to the Armok and the overseer, that we will serve the good of the fortress! Everyone gathered in the meeting hall, surrounded us. The millitia commander appeared, and after Pencil_Art and Overseer Smunstu ended their speeches, we were had to make an oath:

- We, the Order of The Ale swear that till the last drop of blood from our veins, and till the last drop of booze from our barrels drips on the ground... WE WILL SERVE AND PROTECT THE FORTRESS OF DOOMFORESTS!!!

It's real! The Order of The Ale is officially a knightly order of Doomforests! Each year, the forming of the Order should be celebrated with a free, high quality booze served by our knights! The millitia commander took us to training areas quickly, and gave us some supplies left by dead soldiers. Then he described our duties, and gave us patrol maps. We proceeded to train immediately.

Later the day, when I was patroling the hallways I heard a horrifying shriek made by one of the dwarves. Everyone stopped their duties for a moment and just stared at the strange dwarf. Then he just asked about the overseer signups, and went on. I called two other knights, and we decided to follow him, just to be sure.

The dwarf entered the Bloodthorn Signup Cabin and written his name on the list. We just waited for him. He went out of the cabin and was surprised. We moved our hands slowly towards our weapons, and when he was just about to panic, we said:

- We're watching you... scum...

And then we just turned around, singing the booze song we always sang while working in the stills. As soon as we reached our headquarters, I ordered one of the knights to send my letter to Mate the 888th.

Spoiler: Letter (click to show/hide)

Then another knight have brought me papers from the overseer that I had to fill in, so the Order would be documented.

Spoiler: The Order of The Ale (click to show/hide)

After filling in the forms, I proceeded to write the codex of the Order.


This was a great day. I think that I'll like living in Doomforests much more from now on.

Alright people, thanks a lot for all the participation! The recent dorfing have been made. LordBrassroast, you are the fortress' only blunt trauma specialist, since everyone else uses spears or swords. Or their... hands? Exodius, you somewhat leaped into a 150 years old uber-stressed dude. Wether or not the stress is the result or the reason for the possession is up to you.

Autumn is mostly over, but I'm leaving for classes later this evening and I'd rather study than jump into some writing. I should be able to wrap up winter tomorrow, and that should be it for my turn.

If I could make people food-efficient they'd already all be corpses, moving or not.

Psycho II's Journal
The fortress has been cleaner and more well-stocked than it has ever been before! AND the overseer is permitting my profession to thrive! Life couldn't possibly be better! Although it looks like many of the dwarves have been following me lately, which kind of makes me nervous. At least my proteges are paying very close attention to the process of soap making. Soon enough I can teach my son the secret family recipe. Of course I teach all the dwarves all I can about soap making, but I've got to have something to call my own, right? Hopefully they, too, will put together their own blends of soap one day! I've heard that Minister Smunstu's office has been pimped out recently. I hope he's happy. Because if he's happy, than we'll be happy. At least most of us, though I doubt he has any enemies.


[OOC]
From now on, when I mention the secret family recipe, I will be doing so in cyan. I will also refer to current overseers in the color purple as well as the rutile hat.

So, I just took a look at the (outdated) map, as I was trying to at least guess few things... My initial opinion can be summarised as "oh god help".... Will update the map when I get my hands on the save.... If I still remember how to that is...

Its worth mentionning that the current turn list has not been updated in... three months? Something like that. At this point Doomforests is mostly moderated by posters, not the OP. This means that we'll need someone to browse the thread and grab the names of anyone who asked for a turn, or reapplied for one. Hey you, person reading this, why not you? The next and final update wont be up for another seventeen hours. You know you don't have anything else to do. I'll even give your room a golden door to commemorate your dedication.

I'm new to succession forts in general, yes, but do all forts designed by multiple overseers inevitably degenerate into a body-filled labyrinth of chaos and despair like this? Or is this just a Battlefailed thing?

There isn't much middle ground between killed-by-dragon and never-seen-by-dragon.

Journal of Dark Two

It was a week since the strange dwarf joined The Voluntary Overseer Signup in our Bloodthorn Signup Cabin. Through this time we kept three of our knights following him... watching all the time, every single move, day and night. We even found a way to keep watch on him inside his own chamber! The investigation showed nothing however, and I've got no response from the Chief Inquisitor. I decided to write an official letter to that dwarf. From what my knights told me, his name is Don Pedro. My first official investigation in Doomforests have ended.

"To Don Pedro

Due to the evidences found, or rather complete lack thereof, the official investigation on Your subject have come to an end. We are happy to announce that your civilian status have returned to normal, and your position on the overseer have been officially confirmed. A reminder - once you have become the overseer, our knightly order will be for Your disposition.

Klan-Master Dark Two
The Order of The Ale"

With that finished, I sent one of our knights to deliver it. Then I took some documents that I had to fill in, so the case would be finished. Just when I started to write the report for the overseer, one of the knights entered the office and gave me a letter. Interestingly, it was a letter from one of the dwarven officials in the mountainhome. I opened the letter and started to read:

"To Klan-Master Dark Two

We've been interested in your latest activity Klan-Master. This is a rare occurence, and the letter provided us by Miss. Taupe III of Doomforests, and rumors spread by our citizens, we decided to extend The Order's of The Ale area of operation to the mountainhome. Research conducted by Ministry of Not Dying Horribly, as well as our Chief Medical Dwarf and brewers have showed that knightly order praising booze and drinking is a huge morale booster, and actually serves some practical purposes by creating additional layer of protection to our fortresses. With this in mind, we decided to raise your rank to Klan-Master of Mountainhome, with fortress of residence being Doomforests.

Ministry of Not Dying Horribly

I must report it to the overseer as quickly as I can!

I would, but it took me a week to get through the thread, and I do not think my boss appreciated that^^ But if my memory serves Pyrotechno wanted a turn before me, and someone else before him....

Also, this thread is rather appropriate, don't you think? I mean, the OP left us, we have no idea what is going on, and yet we still struggle on... just like the fortress itself... Apart from the "everyone's dead" part....
