NOTICE: Check Posts 2 and 3 for important update information

This will be a sucession game, played from spring to spring, saved and handed over to the next player at about early spring 1st. 1 year turns. We are using .03; it may have minor issues but it is awesome.

THE WORLD:
The Domain Of Portents.

Our parent civ is the "Pearl of Dyes" or somesuch. It is the oldest Civ in the world, having been founded in 1, in the first historical event in the world.

There is an immense ammount of forgotten beasts and demons that populate this world, above and below ground. I won't bother to recite them. It is appropriately epic.

THE SITE:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The Ice of Melting on The Lustrous Island. A 3x3 centered on the volcano "The Maligned Volcano" It is a glacier with no wood, possibly no flux, possibly no carbon fuels, and no natural water. The water is okay though, because we live on a glacier volcano. At any rate, any natural water would be seawater anyway.

It is a brutal starting map, but I know it well, and I will have farms and everything needed for survival up and running before my turn is up. I will not tolerate any cats to survive in the fortress, but will bring some breeding dogs for food eventually.

We have no trade with Humans, Elves, or Goblins, but trust me when I say that the overworld is not our chief threat or concern. ALso, apparently you will not freeze to death from being outside.

We do, however, get trade from the dwarves and migrants.

There is an antman civ. We will be meeting them very soon.

EMBARKING: (ED)

We are the Dwarves of GoldAnguisged.

CONCLUSION:
The game is in full swing, if you would like to be dwarfed, post your preferred nickname and profession, and the person currently running the most active game will dwarf you. I will post relevant information as requested.

This sounds like loads of fun. I'll take erith, as he has almost exactly the same birthday as me (add a 1 to the year, and make it 2nd instead of 3rd last month). He'll be a proficient armour smith I guess. give him some skill with the spear, and if he has any points left over, throw them in random social stats.

Edit: oh, and Timferius for the nickname

Timferius, requests noted and updated ingame and in the thread
Edit: Urist, request noted and changed ingame and in thread
Timferius, again, noted and modified. Vote noted.
Robocorn, vote noted

I'm watching Alex Jones show in the meantime, i'll be f5'ing for a while yet tonight.

I'm hoping to get the last 3 members in so I can embark. It won't take me long to finish and write up my own turn. I really want to get this rolling for the community.

I concur.
Random names always wind up being the most appropriate ones.

I'll take Atis, she seems the nicest of the womenfolk.

5pts weaponsmith
3pts furnace operator
1pt organizer (just lump into furnace if this is too easily trained?)
1pt appraiser (just lump into furnace if this is too easily trained?)
0pts, but activated: mechanic, architect, any other smithing that we don't end up with, woodburning (only good use for it anyhow).
When military is unbugged (so that you can return to civilian work) I wouldn't mind some ax training.

Profession: Keeping people in line until the forges are up, then forgetting about their non-adamantine desires.

Equipment: a few pieces of copper with which to make a table, chair, coffer, and 1 spare, if possible for my bedroom. We get beds in this forsaken glacier, right? Let me sign up for a log with which to have a bed made while I'm at it. Best to be prepared, you know. A personal dog, if that isn't asking too much?

Fortname: indifferent, prefer amusingly related to circumstances random.

(aside: When it is my turn/urgently need my attention, I'm best contacted by quatchsas at gmail.com rather than in forum notifications. I manage to miss the fact that I have inforum mail for 6 months or so.)

Quatch, your preferences and comments have been noted and updated in the thread and ingame.

Just two more folks and we can embark. If we manage to get the last two done tonight I will endevour to either finish year one, or at the very least post a mid-year update tonight.

I should ask, the maximum turn time is 1 week, or something similar? Rules for unfinished turns?

1 week turns seems fair, but no hard limit. At the very least to actually post the updated save file. I mean, story updates would be nice. As for unused turns, i guess put the person later on in the list and wait for them to respond back, and then if they are active asgain, move them up as is reasonable.

Totally flexible, we could vote on it when that time comes. In the meantime we could really use 2 more posters to request dwarves. Then i'll start and post updates and make it interesting until 1051 and send over my save for the next guy.
