PTW be it v.40 or later.

This has happened a few times in Breadbowl, and I can confirm it's interesting to see a dwarf alive and well in one copy of the game despite having watched them have their head caved in by an Ettin in the parallel one.
 
I would recommend starting the divergence after the first year, once a very basic fortress has made and the first two migrations have arrived. Otherwise the only thing the parallel worlds will have in common will be the starting 7 and the map.
I think this is a good idea. A bit more in common would be nice for comparison's sake.
Good thinking.  Splitting the Fortresses after 1 or 2 years would allow for a better comparison down the line, plus whatever amusing reason that Overseer comes up with for a parallel universe.

It'll take awhile for the new version to be stable enough to support a succession game. Maybe it'd be worth it to give it a try if there's enough interest?

Don't pay attention to the body piles in every fort I play, I swear I'm competent at this game.

Maybe.  Invaders are by no means the only source of !FUN!.  However, if you are experienced enough to not die to self-made disasters, there usually isn't enough other pressure to create suitable entertainment (at least in my opinion).

Okay, it seems that enough people actually want to play this, so I guess I'll start it up now. You can get on the waitlist while I update the OP.

I will also follow QuQuasar's advice and play the for for one year before copying it and posting it. So that'l take some time. Should be soon though.

6. No save scumming unless it is to circumvent bugs/glitches. If any other reason to save-scum occurs, notify me.  If a fortress falls, than the remaining players will be assigned to the other fortress.
I had a thought about this- how about if a fortress falls, we diverge again with the surviving fort and add the remaining players on there?

I suppose that could work. My turn just hit summer. It should be finished by tomorrow.

Since apparently no one wants to be first, sign me up for a turn.

I have looked at this and like it. I will take a turn. I understand this will probably be after the split.

Everybody is after the split. I am the only one before the split.

I'll sign up for a turn. I'm experienced enough not to die to self-made disasters... I think. I did flood a swimming pool the other day but not deep. Now there's just mud all over the engravings, unpleasant but not a disaster.

You're right, we're going to need a lot of players if this is going to be a red vs blue sort of scenario.

okay, all of you who want are in now. I was halfway through winter when the game crashed. Thank goodness for seasonal autosave.

I'll take a turn as well. Can we get dwarves before the split or are we limited to one universe to live in?

Look elsewhere, reader. There is nothing for you here.

Both of you are in.

@Deus Asmoth: I think that it would be better to give the dwarves nicknames in each universe, as you become the overseer of that fortress.
