The Bay 12 Games Report, March 1st, 2018

Mission Status

Slaves to Armok: God of Blood, Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress.  That's the name of the game.  We've grown as human beings since coming up with that title, but for the next while, we will be returning to our roots.  The next push will set the groundwork for the myth generator and magic release, which will take a while to implement.  This will be what is now known as "the Big Wait."

What gruesome sights we have to show you!  Imagine armies of dwarves, elves, goblins, men, women, and war animals, all slaughtering each other wholesale.  The second you accept your present time in world generation, the universe will be thrown into chaos.  Villains and tyrants will command their forces to battle one another, and the only way not to be crushed is to build an army of your own.  Your dwarves and adventurers will earn titles, and with them, the responsibility to maintain power at all costs.  Political intrigue and force of arms with be your tools to gain power to defend your people from total annihilation.

It's our intention to bring you a world generator balanced between creation and destruction, chaos and order.  Fortresses are weapons of war, and gods of blood are ever-thirsty.  Forgive us this trip down memory lane, and have fun conquering the world while you wait to be stunned by the procedural myths and magic that are coming next!

Fun with Numbers

Ha ha, yeah, the new 'c' screen in dwarf mode will continue to get a work-out for a bit (don't worry, there'll still be room for peaceful players, heh.)  The new release is going to be up soon, and then we'll continue on with changes in this vein for a bit:  see the updated development page.  There should be several more of these smaller releases before we go into myth and magic land, and the hope is to provide several additional opportunities for fun to be had before we start the lengthy deep changes necessary for creation myths.  Thanks for another great month!

Reward reminder:  If you support us, you can pick either a Story Reward or a Crayon Art Reward.  A Story Reward is basically a mini-Threetoe story (examples) and a Crayon Art Reward is a crudely drawn scene which we sketch, color in, and mail to you, anywhere in the world (assuming your contribution covers postage, which is about a dollar almost wherever you are).  We take personal requests for either reward as well, he he he.  You can also be listed among the Bay 12 Champions.  You can choose any kind of reward no matter which contribution method you choose.
