So kinda wonder if it possible to just do this party thing with dfhack? write up a script that just starts adventure mode with companions bound to you already?
Possibly, but no mounts, no villaneous commands, no party creation screen or equipment purchase on start up. Possibly no pets either. With a release predicted for this month I'm not sure why you'd want to bother making a Dfhack version right now.

Not to mention no way to actually control the whole party. Guess you could use dfhack to body-hop, but that's not the same as what toady wants it to be.

challenge? probably an advfort vs adv build menu that toady added where both does the same concept but tackles it differently and one adds on to the other alot more.

though party Creation and equipment purchase is probably an UI thing and out of my hands, using unit/item spawning scripts is doable, mounts are doable as that's a unit.relationship and unit flag toggle for that to work, also pets uhh hmm I think I did that with just simple modding and making a syndrome that gifts the ability to talk to a unit and get them to join you. 

other than that probably figuring out how bandit ai work so one could just send companions out to rob folks is probably something to add to the todo list for villainous commands.


oh yeah one could just use the fort mode embark system for the points and party creation, then just 'bodyswap' into the body of one of the fort residents and companion the rest of the civ.

It would be easier and faster to just wait for the update.

I have a group of 10 friends that i've been playing games with for years so i was going to make 10 naked dwarves with knives and give each of them ONE skill. One would have reading, one would have knife fighting, one would have swimming, one would have riding, one would have fighter, etc. Maybe give them an item for their skill (riding would get to start with a horse, maybe the throwing guy gets a few knives instead of just one) and just see how long we all survive. It makes each one dying a lot more important because if, for example, we lose the reader we just cant read anymore. See how long it takes for us to make it from naked outsiders to full steel legends and how many of us survive that far.

I'd make a group of master carpenters and build a town.
Screw those vanilla towns with their permanent residents and functioning wells, we'll make our own town, with blackjack and kobold hookers.

Not sure what it'll look like, but I'm gonna retire them in my fortress.

Don't forget to bring someone who can read/write, so that you can put up a sign...

Think I'll probably start with something fairly simple, like a pair of sibling adventurers and their horses, maybe a dog too. I'll wait until I get the hang of controlling multiple characters to move onto something crazy like 30 axedwarves on the backs of giant elephants.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

This. Will probably have to substitute most of these with modded races since I deleted all animal people in my raws, but, eh. As long as we get to have an epic quest.
