I like it so far! How close is the fort to the volcano?

That ledge that the wagon is on, its over the volcano
is that close enough? :P

Wow, I can't believe we wound up right on top of the volcano like that. Awesome! XD

It looks like you brought War Dogs, and is the other thing a donkey or alpaca or something? It'd be nice to know if we embarked with anything cool or different.

Otherwise it looks like so far so good. It seems that we have some clay to dig into which will be good for farming. I also think we should find the magma ASAP so as to get the metal industry going proper. I like the large farm size, but I'd like it to be split into multiple farm plots so we can grow different types of plants. How many seeds did we set out with? If you're okay with Audience input here's my plan for the farm plots:

Plot 1: Sweet Pods Spring/Summer, Plump Helmets Autumn/Winter
Plot 2: Plump Helmets Spring, Cave Wheat Summer/Autumn, Plump Helmets Winter
Plot 3: Plump Helmets Spring, Pig Tail Summer/Autumn, Plump Helmets Winter

That's assuming you just have the brew-able seeds. If we have spare plump helmets seeds having a plot that grows Plump Helmets year round couldn't hurt. If we have Quarry Bush grow it in every season except Winter, then Plump Helmets in Winter. If we do have Quarry Bushes' we'll need a Farmer's Workshop to harvest the leaves so they can be used in the Kitchen.

Hopefully come Harvest time we'll have enough barrels or rock pots to keep the harvest in.

Thanks for the update! I'm excited to hear more about the fortress and see something new from you soon! :)

I'll probably start the 3 plot once we get enough useless migrants to be farmers, then we can get that working well

I'll look forward to the updates tomorrow (or really later today in EST) then! Since we already embarked with a smith I'm excited to know what kind of metals we have available. Also we only got to see one floor of the fortress but I saw stairs, so it will be great to see how far you can build it next update.

And since my fellow farmer is an Herbalist, I think we should gather some plants from the very start and then either eat or process them for their seeds. I'm going to request we start outdoor farming at some point (hopefully using the channel+floor trick to keep it safe) but since that's more complicated it can wait a bit. Speaking of which, what kind of gather-able plants are around us?

Sorry if I'm jumping ahead with all the farming talk. XD I'm just really excited because this is my first time participating in a community game. Good luck with the next update! ^^

Just checking a few other threads it looks like people have used http://dffd.wimbli.com/ in all the threads I checked. What's going on that's taking up all your time? You don't need to feel pressured to update immediately, just as soon as you can.

So here I am, logging into the Bay12 Forums.  I'm not sure whether to feel happy about this, or sullenly admit the loss of what little remained of my soul after all of this Fun.  So much Fun.  So, so much Fun.  <shudders>
First things first.  You're all soulless husks of what might have once been decent human beings, drafted into a sort of moral apartheid from your better natures in the pursuit of things made out of cute animals.  I love it.
