Okay, folks, I am going to be stuck with family starting around the weekend and ending some time next week, so I am moving myself down the list, just in case I can't take the game after BluarianKnight.

Alright, little short but at least can post my first little bit. More tomorrow..



The last overseer suggested I started this journal sort of thing, and.. Well, shucks, I suppose I should. Iím ďBlueyĒ - thatís what folks call me, at least. Wasnít around here, sent a friend along to reserve a spot - fuckhead took my name too, so Bluaís going to be called Knight for now, and Iím keeping Blue. Easy? Easy.

Weíve got some poor souls left around.. Bury them first, I think. Fingered Knight for manager role - I need somebody to yell at, and my pumpkin ainít rolling to each shop to tell them what to and not to do. Make that his problem..



What do we have for defenses? A ballista, some walls even my brotherís could climb over.. Itís pathetic. I plan on adding a second level - higher walls, gabbro perhaps.. Weíll top it off with towers. Make the whole place feel secure.

The first Abbey of Books seemed to fall by itís failure to keep their settlement safe - to keep their pumpkins safe. The first reclaimer did a good job with his time.. And now itís mine.

Now..


Traders. Weíve still got goods lying around - drink, instruments, toys, crafts.. Iím pulling it all and sending our best to go deal with it.

Iíve done what I can to offer - they refused my trade. They found a barrel of wood and found it disgusting. Iím no longer interested in being peaceful. They can leave.

With that out of the way, Iíve moved to begin a second layer of foundation.





Migrants have arrived. Not much has been stated - Weíve moved to Slate, so far..20 new souls to feed and care for. Iím going to look for anyone of note..

I lay some to pottery - brick is easier than wood - and some to fish, to ease our food production.. As this is happening, I finally get some work done of the few of our kindred that have yet to be laid to rest.. I cannot find their bodies, but slabs will have to do..

Summer has arrived..

Nice. I made one of the houses out of bricks before i realized I was literally doubling the amount of labor needed to construct things.. I wish bricks were batches of 4 instead of a single dang brick >:[

Alright, ah, sorry for the long wait - My save file corrupted, so please skip me to the next person. My entire folder's half gone, or I'd finish my turn.

Last year, upon our arrival at Tylente Reep, "The Abbey of Books", we were seven strong pumpkins expecting a fight. Instead, we found scattered, decaying corpse-stems and battered furniture, objects whose meaning was lost with the deaths of their owners. The abandoned buildings clustered around a small steam, threading past the golden leaves of this ever-autumnal forest.

Bandit attacks forced me to keep a sword at the ready, as I planted and grew. I took up the role of broker and made deals with all strange manner of creature. We focused on re-starting the industries that would eventually keep us alive, and revive this glorious scene to it's former glory.

After a year, leadership fell to my shoulder-leaves. Our numbers had swelled to 18. And still, I would be the one lead us forward into the year 255. I prayed to the great toad Gainhan for blessings.

===

Junk.. everywhere. A good first impression is important for any trade deal, especially with those strangelings and their finnicky tastes. Some cleaning is needed. A pit to throw uneeded items, a stink-pit, garbage chute... whatever you might call it.



===

Together, we make 18 pumpkins.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Kinton, the Miner - always busy, he needs an apprentice.
Callisto, the Carpenter - believes in a mysterious god-force instead of a proper deity.
Whith, the Woodcutter - with a pet goat.
BluarianKnight, the Stoneworker - always buried in books.
Ottier, the Engraver - needs a room to sleep in.
Rheweis, the Ranger - ever ready for ambush.
Vanais, the Animal Dissector - strange and creepy.
Ober, the Animal Trainer - wants to train a strike force.
Norvir, the Smelter - somehow, with leaves for hands, manages to forge metal without turning into pumpkin puree.
Jer, the Stonecrafter - lazy.
Roas, the Fishcleaner - no one told him that fish can bathe themselves.
MoonstoneFlower, the Doctor - kind of sad, but ultimately professional in the face of overwhelming pumpkin trauma.
KingZultan, the Siege Engineer - he makes the biggest arrows. Have you ever seen a specter . . . vaporized?
Tomnot, the Administrator - always counting things.
Gang, the Legendary Suturer - sometimes you think shes just watching and waiting for you to get hurt, with those tiny needles of hers.
Edmor, the Scholar - fancies himself a logician, but is probably a cheap hack.
Avo, the Axepumpkin - dont fuck with this guy. just dont.
Salmeuk, the Broker - hey thats me.

===

Kinton got curious and uncovered one of the old graves by the stream. Spookily, we found the casket completely empty. . . but also conveniently should we need graves in the future.

===

A tunnel was dug, connecting the short-walled wooden village to the stone chamber dug in this previous year. The chamber is impressive, with log supports protecting our soft pumpkin heads from cave-in. Here we could store food, objects, weapons. The forges were moved below as well.

===

A surprise, following the arrival of the seasonal strangeling traders, were a group of cheerful batling performers. A grab-bag bunch, with a ratling and specter in tow, they set up in our newly christened tavern The Future Beer and begun to entertain.





===

They were stunned. Standing in the doorway, a second troup had arrived - the Pillars of Growth. Rivals, apparently, as they begun a fervent dance battle. Us pumpkins found this tiring, and were about to suggest that the first troupe just move on, when... a third arrived. We were drowning in saucy batlings.

Migrants, as follows:

Tyley, the Woodcutter. He was told to burn charcoal for the forges.
Nigh, the Architect. He wasn't all that skilled and was told the same as Tyley.
Mosse, the Ranger. He will help fill out our defenses.
Salaus, the Weaponsmith. He was given managerial oversight of the smeltery, and seems keen on expanding production. We'll see if there's any metal in the ground worth a weapon.
Laton, the Ranger. A talented gunwoman - she was promoted to captain and will lead the training.
Pard, the Woodcutter. We'll find a use for him later.
Rom, the Woodcutter. Ok. Stop. We get it. There is wood to cut, and yes, we do have a lot of it. But no, we don't need woodcutters. . . .
News, the Leatherworker. Enough leather comes through with the traders, and we could use quivers or the equivalent.
Part, the Mason. Good! We need blocks for the defensive wall.
Urisles, the Waxworker. He was tasked with finding all the stray cabinets.
Glee, the Metalsmith. Added to the forge team.
Clanza, the Smelter.
Oblair, the Soapmaker.
Rume, child of Clanza and Oblair.
Ury, the Master Glassmaker. If only we had sand. . .
Pince, the Siege Operator. He was immediately recruited by Zultan.
Abost, the Weaver.
Vanias, the Farmer.
Nestes, the Bowyer.
Rhell, the Woodburner.
Adolfor (???), the Engraver.
Tiale, the Miner.
Hurbin, the Peasant and the Poet.
And an assortment of small pets and livestock.

All in all, not bad, but just one thing - OMG WHY ARE THERE SO MANY wtf WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO SLEEP?????

I brought the popcap back to a reasonable number of 50. Work continues..

BACK!  Worried about the save file now.  Yeah, I changed the pop cap because I figured we could defend ourselves by choking the battlefield with our corpses.  :D

At least the settlement is still around.
