  • I am extremely offended at the accusation that I have "horridly mismanaged" Breakfastpit. I did the best I could with the fortress in its pitiful state.
  • There's an extremely large pile of wood on the southern side of the courtyard behind the longhouse.
  • I agree that the main fortress is a complete mess. It was like that before I got here.
  • I know the farm is mostly empty. The farms were previously scattered around the outside of the fortress, but I decided that was an unacceptable security risk given the history of Breakfastpit. That is why I built a new courtyard south of the main courtyard and began building farms there. But the farmers were at that point either 1) old and skilled and completely insane or 2) complete idiots who couldn't tell a rat weed seed from a quarry bush nut. This slowed construction of the farms. And since nobody would grow anything, it didn't particularly matter whether we had the farm courtyard tilled or not.
  • The zombie trapped in the wall was put there for the express purpose of training marksdwarves. Did you listen to anything I told you? Or did I forget to mention why there was a strange shaft with a zombie sitting at the bottom?

I feel like you're taking my post a little bit too seriously. Breakfastpit is a perfectly fine fortress, and by the looks of things you did more than a fine job running it. If you couldn't tell, the entire post is narrated by the comically militaristic personality of Bemul "The Maggot" Astfarash, who was fated from the beginning to be fundamentally dissatisfied with the state of the fortress. Although I suppose that could have made it a bit clearer that it's supposed to be a joke.

EDIT: Well, I just looked up what /ic means. Aint that ironic.

Heeeey, screenshots of the fortress. Haven't seen many of those in a...

Oh. Oh god what the actual fuck. I knew this place was in a bad state, but my god. That clusterfuck of dirt rooms. The debris scattered everywhere. The asymmetrical dining hall. The complete lack of colour consistency. I mean, I know everyone was more focused on trying to survive the horrors of Breakfastpit than aesthetics, but one of the dining hall chairs is blue. WHY IS ONE OF THE CHAIRS BLUE?

And worst of all, the lack of farms. You had one job!
 
This fortress is gloriously awful. I can only assume the queen must have given up on this place years ago. I like to imagine there's an actual successor to Breadbowl elsewhere in this world that is happily sending back a small countries worth of food and drink every year, and the only reason Breakfastpit hasn't been abandoned is because nobody wanted to tell the crazy survivors of Breakfastpit that they'd been replaced.

I say we make the new goal to get our act together, raze the mountain home to the ground, and make the queen/king pay for sending any dwarves to this death trap.

you know. the dining room has grown on me. I think it's become like the one chair you love to bits that has one leg just ever so slightly shorter then the others. also I'm pretty sure I had some legendary brawls in there.
I do suspect my preference for using mined-out ore veins for coffins is to blame for the random crypts all over the place. but I needed them quickly and had the space available.

as for production... I'm.. not sure? we still seem to be producing quite a lot of food and drink. although one of the main problems has just become.. well. effectively the overhead needed to keep this place running.

Fertilize the crops with magma.

Hey, sorry for the delay. Real life has been in the way for the last few days. First proper fortress post should be coming soon-ish.

@Moony: Sure, although the fortress rules say that you need to pick a new name first since you were already dorfed once.

If I ever die, I’ll probably be Kogan. I never did do very much with her character. That’s the difficulty of trying to add fictitious functions to an elaborate simulation - they fall by the wayside and meaningful interactions that are actually part of the game are focused on instead. Now that I’m not an overseer that shouldn’t matter as much.

Fertilizing the crops with magma wouldn’t actually do anything except possibly flood the fortress with magma. I suggest irrigating with water. It would probably be easiest to make a channel from the ocean. This could later serve as a moat.

Oh, yes. I believe you had a role in history of the early fort. If I remember correctly, you were turned into a werepig and there was a bit of a debacle with containing you.
