Failcannon has finally, finally, died.
August 19, 2010 - November 6, 2011
1 year, 2 months, 18 days
Holy shit guys.


But yes, it's down to this
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
On the plus side, the loyalty cascade is no longer a prime concern.
Did we just made reality itself commit suicide?


Before I begin the introduction, I must first recount to you the tale of Battlefailed. Seventeen years ago, Her Humanity Led Shakeoars, queen of The Sword of Boots, grew tired of the company of dwarves, and sent seven of our kind to establish a dwarven colony in the Plains of Ooze where it bordered the terrible Blueness of Malodors. This fortress, named "Battlefailed," saw much life in the next sixteen years... but far more death. Last year the dwarven caravan arrived and was ambushed by kobolds before even reaching the gates. This was taken as a sign that the fortress had either fallen or been abandoned, as no living fortress would tolerate the existence of such petty scum. A followup expedition later confirmed the deaths of everyone in the fortress. Thus was the fortress of Battlefailed considered lost. If the rumors are to be believed, their fate was far worse than mere goblins or wildlife.

Our Goal

We have been sent by Her Bitchiness the Queen to succeed where Battlefailed, well, failed. We are to build a fortress near the ruins, to remind the world that we dwarves do not surrender, and that we will persevere. There was also something about getting out of the Queen's sight and dying in the wilderness, but that's normal for her...

The Site:

I have found a suitable site for our new city, about a day's travel north of the ruins. Its location is marked on the enclosed map.



I invite you to join the fortress of Ungègugath, "FailCannon" in the common tongue, and help remake history.

Pre-Failday Save (about three seconds before the apocalypse)

Aluonra's final save.

Will it survive until turn 13? If not, sign me in, if yes, sign me in. The bigger question is, will it survive until turn 14? Heh.

I'm in! But next week I won't be able to play, so could my turn be moved down a couple slots? Turn 6 would be ideal.
