Figures I would inherit Battlefailed and Cavebrands on the same day.  Downloading within the hour!

He he he.  Yeah, it almost looks done...  alas...  those who are in your teens, hold on until your twenties...  those in your twenties, your thirties...  others, cling to life as you are able...It should be pretty fun though.

Don't suppose you've gotten a chance to play this any, eh Melkorp?

I'm doing pretty well, the ascii is a little weird though: minerals are showing up as, like, a's with umlauts and stuff.  Just have to see the Matrix.  First update: Monday PM

I'll send him a PM.  If something doesn't happen, we'll just have to subject the place to another year of my ruling.

--arranged a tasteful row of statues in the... what in the Windy World?  What is this place?  Only a moment ago I was deep beneath Battlefailed, overseeing surgery.  What wizard or spirit has summoned my disembodied spirit to this, uh... Is that a dwarf punching a goat?   

Dead dogs everywhere...a vestibule awash in the blood of dozens of creatures...the whole place carpeted in mud, gore, rubble, and mugs.  An exhausted, armorless militia with willow weapons, patrolling for a partially rotted goblin maceman...  By Battlefailed's standards, the place is a paradise. 

Despite the evidence of years of carnage, I sense positive energy at work beneath this hill: vast, empty, freshly hewn halls... most of the village are rated Hauler...many hands make light work.  Much could be done here, the courtyard is reasonably secure, if only the military could have time and space to train.  Ah, the records, let us look.  Who commands here? 

'Listath Windspells: Warrior'  Ah, excellent!   
Unconscious.  Extreme Pain

Unfortunate.  Well, according to the muster, two captains serve beneath him.  One with the surname of Dangledhandle:
Deceased

And another named Nukem, who is apparently possessed of steel gonads!  Dear me.
His upper body is gone 

Oh.  Well, the Captain of the Guard, then.  'Jordrake': a warlike name!  Good, good.
Holdings:  Grave

The village thrives, yet this peace has obviously come at a high price indeed.  If the fortress is to survive, its' militia must be rebuilt, trained, and armed.  There are extensive notes left by the last overseer, detailing the particulars of a number of ingenious projects which tempt and intrigue me.  Yet the first priority must be safety, freedom from fear.  Let another overseer reap the glory from exalted public works, my legacy must be martial.

To effect any sort of change, however, I'll need a body.  The trader should do.  I think I'll like it here.  I wonder what they call the place.

No succession game is complete without disembodied ghosts possessing the living from across realities.

I like the crossover motif, nicely done.

Battlefailed's been interesting, posting to follow this too.

Dammit Melkorp...  I'd hate to have to skip you now that you've actually done something, but this is getting ridiculous.  I've been hesitant to throw my own ineptitude at the fort, but I'd much rather do something lackluster than have nothing done at all.

Pity.  I was enjoying the story, too.

Sign me up for another turn, Kagus?  It'll be fun coming back to Cavebrands with actual knowledge of the military system.

How about this? Kagus plays now. If Melkorp ends up with a turn, and something interesting happens that makes us want to use it, then I play that turn, and Kagus can play the turn after, so he doesn't have to play two turns in a row which would be tiring.

Would it be acceptable if I had a turn? I've been watching this and have laughed heartily many times and wish to join the fun.

I'll readily accept new signups when I'm doing my turn and have started a new round of overseers.  We'll work out the order then.

And, from the looks of things, I guess I will have to buckle down and get this thing rolling.  Hmm.
