I smell a double agent in our midst, Overseer.

Oh, I wonder what gave you that impression.

Actually, not so good. Gonna redo.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Second attempt (Hopefully better than first) :

We waited by our gates
When Highmax passed us by;
We cheered to see his face,
To catch his gleaming eye!

The sunset burnished red his shield
His sword was silver, gleaming pale
And where all others had been foiled
This lord of old could never fail.

He slew the Trolls across our land,
He gave our army strength.
The forges pounded metal strong
To give us tempered steel of wrath.

And we loved him; his iron fist,
The way the Bone Lord quaked with fear.
Who could but look on him without
Some pride, some heartfelt, earnest tear?

Not I! Yet when the blood was in the air,
When fort and honour called him on,
His temper failed. Our fates were sealed.
He did not join us in our song.

And how the Bone Lord laughed to see
Our hero, red with sin.
And how our hearts were broken, torn
By him, who in our pride, we had let in.

Now close your eyes, you Forumites who read
These words of sorrow. Close them, and think
On honour lost, and swords turned red by pain.
And think, at last, of he whom we have lost.


Edit: finished.
Edit Edit: Did a different one.

Events
Immediately After

Carefulrogue leaned back in the throne. Resting his hands an inch from the tome in a steeple.  He was in the body, probing the extent of what Apiksí magic had done. 

He was unsettled by the ability, but more by the display of it, in such flourishes.  His discovery and practice had always been secret, kept away from prying eyes, locked away, although that didnít always work.  Apiks though, lavished it.  And the nature surrounding Apiks was strange all itís own, a bright white, sometimes threatening to overtake his sight with the best of defenses and evasions.  Even now, he could glance up and see a pulse of white peeking through the tiny cracks, and shining through the other blankets of magic.  He was powerful. 

Rivaling his magic, but not significantly, was his influence over the population.  Somehow he got the military to back him, and turn on Th4DwArfY1 a year--was it even a year?--ago.  And still the civilian population hasnít attempted an uprising, despite ordering a significant volume of the population to haul bodies into the center of the fortress, where he decided to build a throne.  If they had just sided with Highmax, Apiks would have been stripped of a significant volume of power.  That was a frustrating, but unsettling thought. 

The Orchestra came to mind as a force he might enlist to give him ways to start to combat Apiksí influence.  If they didnít try and kill him immediately, he thought grimly, after what had happened.  Hard to say.

With a sigh, Carefulrogue reached forward and flipped the book close.  Standing, with the aid of magic--the crutch was across the room--he stowed the book on the shelf where it sat next to a dozen other journals.  The other shelves had their own collections, but the second one down was for the journals most especially. 

Rogue walked to the crutchís resting point, and then glanced at the oil lamp still burning slowly on the desk.  ďMay the divine guide me,Ē he whispered, as he whisked the air away from the flame.  Darkness blanketed the room, and Carefulrogue closed the door and began the walk back to the fortress proper.  Rogue had work to do.

Double post, but this serves as a clear demarcation line.  The game is running rather quickly it seems to me.  I'm getting a 12-14 fps as of this post. 

Here's the rest of the spring season, while I think of what to do. 



Journals
5th Slate, 563
Alright, first order of business.  More mining is needed. If only to keep the miners working.  As well, more gems to prepare for cutting, and just getting people working.  The fortress defense should be fine.  I hope. 

8th Slate, 563
Migrants have arrived.  A few potential military recruits, little else. 

10th Slate, 563
Paving of the dirt layer is occurring.  Iím sick of the crutch getting stuck in the mud, or caught on a quarry bush that popped up.  The areas we donít have stones for at the moment, then Iíll order for a road to be cut and cleared.  Time to clear up this mess.

Oh, and the hole I fell in five years ago.  Why the fuck was that even carved out in the first place again? 

11th Slate, 563
The same principle guiding this next statement is Iím sick of tripping over discarded stones from mining.  Although Iím also curious as to why no one else has taken issue with the look of the fortress.  Iíve seen far younger fortresses that have smoothed floors and walls everywhere.  And yet here we areÖ

14th Slate, 563
Squad of trollfaces wandered into the traps in the caverns I set up a few years ago.  Itís nice to see them finding milage. 

16th Slate, 563
The trollfaces have overwhelmed the traps.  The military is being deployed to slaughter any that make it up past before the workers have the chance to reset the triggered devices.

16th Felsite, 563
It seems someone decided to tame trollfaces.  Well now theyíre going wild.  Just great.

Just make sure he wears a boot.

You can't eat them if you butcher them since they're sentient creatures. Just throw them into the magma sea or something.

...

Could someone also explain to me why it appears the weapons traps I placed down there didn't seem to trigger?

I don't think that's true anymore, I remade trollfaces during the last major LOLmod update based on hungry heads. We should be able to eat them now.

Maybe the trollfaces overwhelmed the traps? That happened to Arx.

Press T and see if limbs got stuck inside of them. Just designate it for dumping

Yeah, with only three (I think) traps down there, even a small group of critters can easily bumrush them. And, of course, sometimes the forumites will take years to reload the traps.

Well, I'll keep this all in mind as I run through summer.  And yeah, it does come down to a big IF with the traps, but mostly due to the massive smoothing and brick laying jobs I set up.
