The End of Doomforests: The Final Turn that Never came
« on: March 14, 2016, 09:11:09 pm »

The cry of the cold wind warns us of the presumed torment which is to come as we trudge through this sparse forest. It's damned cold this time of year, and the trees offer little protection from the winds.
Stripmining has left the mountainhomes empty. Our expedition of seven is expected to uncover vast mineral deposits and establish a mining outpost in a land beset on all sides by goblins, elves and humans.
The frozen over brook which ends in a waterfall atop a high cliff is a telltale sign. I turn to Urist and tell him to stop the caravan.
This must be it, we have reached Doomforests.
I hear a distant screech.

Armok have mercy on our souls.
The Continuation of the Saga of Doomforest

  Come join the convoluted mess that is Doomforest. When this fortress was started back in 2014, no one would even guess that it would be going "strong" well into 2016. Complete with Goblin Overlords, Vampiric Doomsday Sects, Soap, Forgotten Snails, Soap, Another Forgotten Snail, Soap, Cults, more Cults, Evil Demonic Beings, Soap, A colony of forgotten dwarves founded by a Were-Lizard, Soap, and a noticeable lack of Strawberries. And soap.

  Due to some unexpected complications within the last thread, including but not limited to, the threads owner going AWOL, I was tasked with the construction of this new thread.

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

Why do I feel dread when my name trails behind Gwolfski in the list?
Sanctume was once caught up in the latest in the web of intrigues and conspiracy, but now tangled and lost in confusion.

Kasat Osmandonu, Ghostly Human Bard has risen and is haunting the fortress!
At least his moaning and chain rattling will be in key and hopefully entertaining.

Sounds like there will be great fun in your turn! You only need to know one thing: Soap is for Doomforest what Mugs was for Spearbreakers. It's literally everywhere, and damn, people dorfs use it all the time to seal or build stuff 8)
With that said, why isn't there a Cult of Soap?

With that out of the way: You need a Dorfing list! And put me on:
Name: Mihr
Gender: don't really care. Whatever you find.
Profession: Military Dwarf (preferred Sword or Spear) or Smith (preferred Weapon and/or Armor)
Custom profession name: Clumsy Weapon Master/Mistress (I totally expect to loose something in a fight - i sure hope it won't be my life :P)

When it comes to cults, wasn't there... something about crundles? I've lost track.

Ah, yes, TechnoXan. I feel there's a summary of that cult somewhere in the depths of the old thread, but am unable to find it. Still, his turn next (possibly) and I shudder to think what may happen.

Well, the way I see it, there isn't a cult of Soap for the same reason most forts don't have a cult of Armok. Even we only have a cult(s (maybe, like I said I've lost track. I think we have more than one)) of Armok because we have enough other weird ones that not everyone follows Armok. There is, however, no-one in this fort who doubts the power of Soap. If anyone disagrees (which they won't, of course), I will throw soapstone at them until they no longer do.
Hang on, have I just formed a cult of Soap? I might have. This is not a problem.

There is a summery of the Mechatechno Sect on the front page under a spoiler, but I will edit it in later today. And about the turn, I may be able to, but I think I may have to hand it off early, if that proves to be a problem then that's ok. But if the fort ever stagnates, Armok forbid, I can step in.   :D

By the by, if your wondering why I use so many smiley faces, its because I smile a lot when I talk. So I use them here so I don't come off the wrong way.


And so it begins...

Mr. TecnoXan, since jwoodward seems uninclined to finish his turn, I invoke Da Rules and it is by right, your turn... Armok save us all...

I'm only doing this to jump start the fort's new thread, so if jwoodward comes back... Sorry

For conspiracies (Not a Cult!) summary, use the one from the old thread's OP.  And I'm pretty sure we already have a soap cult. It's called Psycho's family and the other soapmakers.  I'm sure they'd let you join though.

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!

Yeah I'll PM Angel to get a description of his "family" and their goals.
