Back story aside, I’ve spent weeks making this city fortress with somewhat cheaty dwarves to hold dwarven deathmatches. There are dozens of ‘blank’ dwarves that by use of Dwarf Companion
have been stripped of all their stats and by use of the Phoenix chamber been stripped of all their clothes (slight defense bonus I wanted to get rid of). You have 500☼ to buy what armour and weaponry you want for your dwarf from the item tables in the Information post below. Using Dwarf Companion
I will pit your dwarves against each other in the amphitheater and bring the loser back from the dead to fight another day. By winning fights you earn ☼ to buy better equipment and climb ranks to become the WoA Champion.
If you want to keep your equipment choices hidden from the other competitors you can pm me with the Subject title ‘WoA: Your dwarfs name’. Though your initial choice of equipment will be unknown, they will be revealed in each of your fights via screenshots.
Either way you can use this to request a dwarf:Name:Gender:Weapon:
(no crossbows)Armour:Fighting style/mindset:
(optional, but will prove useful when calling the fights)
You must have at least one weapon and one piece of armour (shields included) and all your choices must add up to no more then 500☼. Any leftover ☼ it will be put into your ‘coffer’. The weapon/armour tables and their prices are in the next post. Information on your dwarf will be kept on the 5th post.
PLEASE, for my sanities sake, keep a list of your equipment somewhere where you can find it. I will be keeping a file with everyone’s information but I don’t want to have to remind anyone what they have.
-You can sell back any equipment you buy for half its face value.
-You can have two of the same weapons at the same time, but you don't use them both at the same time. You can only use one, the other serves as a backup if you lose your first weapon during the fight.
-The cost of equipment is the same as in Dwarf Fortress, with weapons as an exception. I did many test fights and I found that weapons were WAY too overpowered at their normal value so I boosted them to that of greaves.
-You can wear caps under helms.
-You can wear chain mail under plate mail.
-This is going to take a lot of micromanagement on my part, so to lighten the load I’ve modded dwarves to not eat or drink. I have hundreds upon hundreds of pre-made armour and weaponry so the only thing I need to do in-game is equip the dwarves and make them fight.
-I’ve done many tests fights and no single weapon has a significant advantage over the others. Variety would be nice and will be helpful in adding weapon-specific championships (Hammerdwarf Champion, Speardwarf Champion).
-Quality means MUCH more then metal-type, damage-wise and cost-wise.
-You may specify if you want a certain gauntlet to be on your weapon hand or shield hand.
-Heavy equipment can really slow down an unskilled dwarf.
