Merchantslipped. Tensions running high!
« on: April 28, 2019, 03:18:49 am »



Hey guys, I've been a lurker here for years, and i'd love to tell the story of my fortress Merchantslipped. I'm trying out doing a Let's Play of my fortress and my wife is drawing different scenes i'm encountering in the fortress. I'm also really trying to add to it with a little backstory.

In the first episode we find our dwarves on the side of a volcano with their wagon hanging in a tree. We have to get started on making a temporary place to stay while we wait for our fellow dwarves to pick us up in the autumn.

If this isn't the place for this i'm sorry, just let me know and i'll remove the post if i can.

In the second episode we have started making something resembling a fortress. One of the things we got started on was a dining room, but since all our animals are hanging around there as well some of the chickens see things they might rather have not...

In the third episode we got some luxuries going like a tavern and some temples. And to the dismay of our dwarves migrants start showing up. The dwarves were hoping to leave this place behind in the autumn, but a vampire epidemic in the mountainhomes might mean that they'll be here on a more permanent basis.

In the fourth episode we breached a cavern underground. We weren't quite ready for that yet since our military doesn't really have any weapons or armor, so the resulting combat reports were quite.... interesting. Eventually it forced us to get our hospital and burial chambers up and running.

Liking the story so far. It's one of the more relaxing LPs of this game I've seen.

That's great to hear. I'm still finding my feet a bit on the way i want to tell the story but it's great to hear it's being appreciated. I'm hoping the next couple of episodes will provide a bit more action to spice things up a little bit.

In the fifth episode we finally got our magma works up and running. We've had a vote and had some visitors. Some good, and some, well. Not so good.

The fun is starting.

In the seventh episode tensions continue to run high, but Mafol, our old leader gets involved. Also, we've finally started to clear out our first cavern layer, with mixed results.

In the tenth episode we find out what happened to Mafol. We're also visited by some of our neighbors, and the new fortress plans are finally starting to come together.
