You definitely have to fill in the blanks a lot. Imagination really helps with this game, both to make sense of certain history-related stuff as well as in-game happenings.
The peculiar moments really do stand out a lot though - in one of my forts I once had a visiting jungle troll naturalist discuss death with a skeleton mage scholar (or perhaps it was a plain skeleton, I can't remember). I found it highly appropriate - there definitely must be a lot of insight on death to be gained from a walking, reanimated skeleton.

lol yes. But as a matter of fact, there are not much blanks to be filled. I think DF is really underrated on how it simulates interractions, and how each situation the game describes has its own flavor of uniqueness. Litterally this little serie is just based off a two weeks trip from one city to another. I just paid attention to details, did a bit of digging when I was unsure, and chose a narrative that fit my personal taste. It's a lot of selection, not so much filling ^^. DF has been my scenarist for a year, and will probably continue for quite a time

As for my gorlak, he's probably my favourite character of all time. At first he was just a junk mercenary I found in the moot of my first fort. I saw him from afar in stonesense, went curious, and discovered that gorlaks were actually a thing like that. During those two weeks of gameplay, he was promoted to commender of his hometown, and had to leave the place. That specific town being currently under attack, he'll probably die a warriors death soon and I don't knw how I feel about it, but I'm definitely emotionally involved.

Edit :




Took me three weeks to illustrate a two week trip. But here, I'm completely done, from start to finish

Oof this stuff looks awesome.

Hoping to do something similar with my goblin adventurer but I have nowhere near the artistic skill to accomplish it lol.

No one cares about "artistic skill" here. It's an art-sharing thread, not a competition. I mean, people have posted stick figures for crying out loud. :P

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

I do post it notes.

If he cannot be prevented from death, you must build for him a monument. Preferably with a tavern attached.

Some days ago I created a quick image of my current "test" adventurer, based upon her starting inventory and physical description. I still don't have much clue how to adventure in the recent iterations of the game, but I enjoy looking at the state of the world and the populations in it.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Riri here, as mentioned in a post I made in the "What's going on in your adventure?" thread, is one of barely more than a couple thousand humans left in a world where elven civilsation rules the entire southern half of the continent. At least one of the elven civilsations has been at war with what remains of humanity for over 100 years.

Her own hometown, Gullyroof, is now a forest retreat. Most other humans I meet are large and meaty, no doubt for elven dietary purposes.

With that in mind, she's begun a journey west in the hope of finding adventures as far from home as possible. I don't have any clue how to do this any more, but at least it's an interesting story and provided ample fodder for a little creativity.

Wow, are you me? I totally love your style and I'd be interested in hearing and seeing more about your character and your world.
DF is the best scenarist I ever met, you'll never run out of content to draw

That's really awesome. I'd really love to explore the world I genned for good biome testing more, since its probably one of the better ones I genned in a while - gotta love that the large continent looks like some kind of long-necked quadruped, and those small mountain enclaves with a few civs inside of them - but I'm busy with evil biome stuff. I may actually keep the parameters for genning it and make another version later once I'm done.

Never bothered with serious advanced worldgen. May try that later.

I've mostly edited the parameters so good and evil biomes are larger, amongst other minor edits, so it isn't really too serious - the shape of the continent and the islands surrounding it are both completely random.

Oh oh oh, I have a relevant piece!


Gonna be a soap dish once I oil it, has little arched drains spaced around the undersides to clear the soap goop more freely, but I only thought of that afterwords. Initially just felt like playing with my coping saw because I love the little fucker.

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

Hey guys! I just wanted to share my adventurer, Mesm Palathotnge Oledistro. Drawing is by my girlfriend :).
Spoilers
https://imgur.com/a/54uxhny


He is a human male, Lord of his own camp, which he constructed after killing dragon and getting his leg damaged. He couldn't walk and desperate, he made a deal with a god. For healing his leg, he would do three biddings of his god. First was killing unique demon, which lived in dark fortress and bringing his head to temple (that bringing part was hardest). Second was raiding tower, killing everyone in it and securing all dangerous books, so they will never be read, and secrets of live and death will be safe. Third, still not done, will be raiding a vault, and securing it's prize. For now, he is still searching for that vault.

His killcount is very long, mostly because goblins, which hate him with passion. He had killed minotaurs, rok, dragon, eternal things, titans, collosus and demons.

(I was using adventurercraft mod, so his equipment is partly made from beasts' loot). He has a steel axe, steel shield, spear from eternal thing's tooth, dagger from dragon's claw and dragon tooth's javelins. He is heavily armoured. He has dragon scale tunic, steel mail shirt and breastplate, cave spider silk mask and silver mask, steel leggings, greaves and boots, steel gauntlets,  roc leather cloak and eternal thing chitin leggings.

After doing the last bidding, I am planning on joining to some fortress and making him a captain of guard, and then maybe attacking hell?
