'Murderflood: (Ardentdikes IIIv3) You, there, grab this save!
« on: August 31, 2015, 09:44:28 pm »



Murderflood is the sequel to Moltenchannels, which in turn was a follow-up to the smoking disaster that was Ardentdikes. The main objective of this project is to create a massive aboveground fortress in a desertic biome. The twist? The fortress must be filled with magma channels and pools, and ultimately contain a self-destruct system that floods the fort with magma. Bonus twist? There is a lake nearby, and it is haunted terrifying.

This is a reboot of the original Murderflood. Yes, the whole five turns done in a single year are getting discarded. Most agreed, the save was a mess, a living proof that one fortress should not go through all 24 different builds of DF2014. Couple this with poor turn implementation, tree-induced crashes and the mysterious disappearance of the OP, and you have a fortress that goes nowhere, not fast. You can find the original thread HERE and HERE.

General principles:
1-Must have a device to flood the fort with magma
2-Construction should be aboveground when possible.
3-We need more magma dikes. Build moar dikes!
4-Dangerous projects that kill everyone are awesome!
5-Bonus point for stylish desert metropolis look.

Basically, the closer we can get to the opening illustration while remaining a semi-functional society, the better.

Rules and guidelines:
1-Each turn runs for one in-game year
2-Players have two weeks to complete their turns. This rule will be enforced to avoid the mistakes of the past.
3-You have 48 hours to acknowledge your turn, lest you be skipped.
4-Floor before roof. Always. Growing trees crash the game, so please avoid future problems by diligently putting built tiles before adding a ceiling.
5-We are going with the default ascii tileset. It's ugly. You hate it. You'll learn.
6-Use of newbie packs and utilities are fine, so long as they don't change the game. Therapist and selection tools, yes. Cheats, no.
7-Die with style, not with shame. Avoid savescumming.
8-Try not to kill the fortress. You know what we mean.

Quotes
(Feel free to suggest one!)

Oh. Perhaps carve fortifications into the walls so archers can shoot at them as they crawl around.
There are a few, small issues with carving holes into the side of a magma dike.

our resident cactus is the younger brother of the current queen.
...Right. So apart from Haerdalas and her father, the entire royal family is composed of goblinists and cacti. We live by a sentient lake and the country is ravaged by the power of love. This succession fort is quickly becoming something weird.
I just stumbled onto this without any context and I have many questions

Should be okay. Look how long it took before this version was stable.
This version is stable?

Can I have a dwarf? I can't remember if I asked or not. I don't have a preference, just a spare dwarf. Maybe the one with the llama... though llamas kind of scare me come to think of it. I guess that could be a point of dramatic tension in my dwarf's life.

Reserving this space for pictures, world history.

Planning to do a year by year picture series to trace how the fort evolves over time, as well as delving deeper into Legends mode to highlight interesting developments, Geo-political history as well as other interesting tidbits for story and flavor reasons.

I AM POINTY DEATH INCARNATE
Ye know, being an usurper overseer gone mad with power isn't too bad. It's honestly not that different from being a normal overseer.
To summarize:
They do an epic face. If that fails, they beat said object to death with their beard.

Welcome aboard! Depending on how many previous overseers reiterate their desire to play, your turn may not happen straight away, but you'll be the first of the newcomers.

Neato! Glad to know you'll be with us once more.
I'd love a turn.
Your old spot has been bumped up the list.

It is now 2-30 pm. Half the drawings are complete. I'm working a half-shift in the evening (5-9) and all the art for the embark should be completed by then. Once I get back from work, I'll form a coherent first update, so expect this around 10, 10-30 EST.

I'd still like a turn, and hopefully a somewhat stupid woodcutter named Nujux.

why kill elves if you could torture them, make them betray their friends, denounce their "force", make them watch trees being chopped down, feed them meat and throw them in magma as a sacrifice for almighty Armok?

Eventually when you go far enough the insane start becoming the sane
