Poll

How votes work (since I can't delete this poll, I'll use it for something better)

You may only vote for a specific story/game once.
You may vote on as many story/games as you want, as long as you're honest.
A story/game will be added once 6 people vote for it. The number is subject to change.
Once listed, a story/game may be removed by no less than 10 votes. It's doubtful this will occur.
Make sure you don't just vote because it's a person you like writing! Quality is a must.

I vote Cacame, bringing the total to six (I think?)
So all hands to chucking it in!

Yeah, he's a banned spammer. Normally we'd delete this thread too, but people were having too much fun with it by the time we got here.

Oh, whoops... My idea was having different headings for community, succession, and stories.
But the new system also works well. It's hall of legends V1.1!

Congrats to Cirius, though. Congratulations!

Edit: Grammar fix'd.

To risk repeating myself from the other thread, thanks to everyone who voted in support of my little tale. It's an honour and a privilege to end up alongside the other famous and infamous stories of Dwarf Fortress.

I was just about to post that myself.

I want to say it's better than Boatmurdered but I fear being lynched.

Never seen a fortress resemble post-WWII Germany before.

Headshoots:VOTE

...On further thought, is posting messages really the best way to do this?

Suggest a better way and I'll switch to it in a heartbeat.

PMs maybe? I don't know.

PM's might work. The poll didn't.

Perhaps all stories and community threads should dispatch a dwarf to the 'Hall of Legends' deathtrap fortress. Only the strongest thread shall emerge triumphant, victorious, and with more than one limb remaining.

Ah, forgot to make a brief explanation of Headshoots


Well, it is a batshit insane fortress from the community that brought us Boatmurdered. Zombie Mountain goats? Check. Bottomless pit? Check. Superweapon that can destroy the world? Check.


And I do realise I used a cliche check system :P


Well, it's got a lot of insane people playing, and perhaps the most badass dwarves ever.

Keep refreshing, the Let's Play archive is screwed up. Also, you'll have to right-click the red X's and select "Show Picture" if you want to see it.


Headshoots was really awesome. I'm afraid to say why because it'd be best to just read the LP. Wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone.

I liked Boatmurdered's writing better, but Headshoot's "events" (AKA tragedies) were more entertaining.
