Flamebanner: The Battle of Flamebanner!
« on: December 02, 2008, 11:05:37 pm »

This space now includes a showcase of interesting things that have been created in this thread by the readers.

Battle Poem: By Derek "Hellbringer" Cosmosirons The Fenced Stigmata, Decapitator of Undead

Slice and Dice, Cut and Hack
Those who kill dwarf kind
Bash and Smash, Crack and Clack
those who end our line

Move and thrust, Hit the Dust
The fate of those green slime
Stay in the Fray, Slay away,
Those who end our time

Stand and fight, With your might
Those who are our pride
Charge and Battle, through the night
For those who will not die

Chase and hunt, the little grunt,
For those who run away
Sing a song, Cheer the crowd.
Flamebanner will not Stray.

Fireheart's Journal: 20th Opal

The memories continue to plague me. Even in my dreams I'm forced to relive that terrible day at Helmthundered when the Goblins took everything. Our home, our friends and worst of all...our honor. Going before the Nobles I demanded a chance to redeem myself and my fellow survivors in the eyes of our brethren. My request was granted and I began preparations. Our honor will be regained whether we live to see it or not.
--------------------------------------------

This fortress is set a few monthes after the Fall of Helmthundered. The Undead and Goblins still run rampant and the pop cap of 20 will still be used for the first few years.

If you want a dwarf then post a name, profession(s) and gender and I'll accomadate as best I can.

There is magma, sand, a chasm and a brook on the map.

I will take a weapon and armour smith namned Sarek
Gender:Male
Personality:Sarek is an old veteran warrior who has now retired however he still wants to do his bit for the new dwarven fortress, and if he can't fight the battles the least he could do is equip the warriors. Sarek is somewhat slow to speak and often in the backround prefering to simply work rather than socialise, however as veteren dwarves are respected when he does speak he is listened to.

Fireheart's Journal 1st of Granite, Year 4

Today we broke camp and followed a brook down out of the mountains and into our new territory. As we approached we could see the familiar haze of heat caused by firey magma and the sun glinting off the precious metal ore encased in the rock around us. I've sent Kornash to scout a suitable location for us to dig while I make a few notes about my companions.

Fireheart's Journal Late 1st Granite Year 4

Kornash came back with a grin saying he'd found a perfect spot to dig. I grabbed a pick and as we started digging we christened the new fortress Flamebanner.

Kornash's Mining Report

2nd Granite: Gold and Limonite
4th Granite: Gold
7th Granite: Bismuthite
26th Granite: Fire Agate
5th Hematite: Resin Opal

Fireheart's Journal 16th Limestone Year 4

We've kept very busy the last few monthes. The workshops are up and running, we have plenty of bedrooms and the beginnings of a fine dining hall.

The caravan from home arrived today. Leading it was our Liason, a dwarf named Rakust Asteshoshosh. We hurried inside to discuss the next years trade while Jillian took over at the Depot.

The meeting went quickly. I arranged for Rakust to bring us meat, booze, barrels, bags and metal. Rakust hurridly stood and headed for the entrance. After storing the trade papers I went to see what we had gotten for Newb's stone goods. I arrived to find Sarek and Newb dropping corpses on the refuse pile. One look told me that they were Antmen, obiously there was a chasm somewhere on our territory. Turning to Jillian I discovered that the merchants were refusing to trade. They claimed they were waiting for the last wagon. Apparently the caravan had run into the Antmen on the way in and the guards had butchered them while the wagons went around. Except one that took off in the opposite direction. We waited, us staring at the merchants and the merchants staring at us while they arranged their goods for the 5th time. A couple Kobold thieves popped up and fled when they saw so many dwarves standing around them. Finnally Jillian spotted the wagon rolling along the brook just fine but moving so slowly. It seemed like ages before they arrived and unloaded. I leapt into the trade, taking meat, gems, metal bars, cages, booze, barrels and an anvil in exchange for all of Newb's crafts.

We started hauling our fresh supplies inside while the merchants headed off in a hurry. I made a mental note to look for the chasm once we had the dwarf power to deal with it.

Plank I've got you down for a noble dwarf but it'll be a while so if you want another in the meantime just let me know.

Also migrants will be arriving soon so post if you want a dwarf.

I'll head up the fledgling militiary with Wok, a militiary dwarf of any profession (preferrably non-crossbow, but if you must then feel free to).
