In the next turn, could somebody please post a status picture of the fort, to see the number of dorfs, food, number of soldiers, etc...

And how's my dorf?

I got the save, though I'm not sure how much I can play before this weekend (this entire weekend however is set aside for Deathgate, so my turn should be relatively quick).

In the next turn, could somebody please post a status picture of the fort, to see the number of dorfs, food, number of soldiers, etc...

And how's my dorf?

I can't find your dwarf on the list (unless it was given a nickname beside NRDL). I'll look through the dead dwarf's list and see if they're there instead.



The fort it seems is in relatively good shape.  We're really at the point that short of epic mismanagement, or a goblin siege from hell, I don't think the fort will go easily ...

scaliper did a pretty good getting the military re-organized and even assigned profession titles so you can easily see at a glance on the units list who is who. As a note thought, you really have to set it to use exact matches vs. partial matches, or something dwarf's will equip crappier items. One of the axedwarf's is using a bismuth bronze shield and iron equipment! (I've found that steel armor with candy robes seems to work the best, but I doubt we have enough candy to rework all the equipment ...)

Hell, we had a kid grow up in Deathgate; how freaking often does THAT happen in a succession game? (let alone DF in general)

As it stands, two more kids should turn 12 on my turn and become adults, and another two on the year after. With our food/drink reserves as they are, we could probably breed our way up to the popcap without too much trouble (except waiting 12 years for the worms to become adults).

Anyway, I'm going to continue the military work, do a fair bit of cleanup, and see if I can secure DG's future. Expect my first update tonight.

Well then, please dorf me as NRDL ( Axedwarf ) so that future overseers can tell whether or not I'm dead.

Dorf me as Velard, and just in case you missed it, I'd like a turn.

Dwarf'ed myself, Velard, and NRDL. Need to look back to see if there is anyone else who needs dwarfing. (As a note, I changed how DF shows nicknames in my game, which is why these screenshots might look weird to some people)


NRDL became one of our legendary miners/axedwarf. Legendary miners do SCARY things to enemies.


Velard, since you didn't specify a preference, I made you the newest adult in DG. As a hauler, you probably have the longest life expectancy of anyone in DG at this moment.


I claimed the legendary seige operator, and only red. She is one of the survivors of the original marksdwarf squads and I think has been around since we breached hell (will check in legends momentary; if anyone wants the legends history of their dwarfs, just ask).

OOC: Here's a prelude to my turn which I wrote over lunch. I did take a more in-depth look at the fort, and it seems a mandate was missed recently. Aside from the mayor having an unhappy thought, is there a risk leaving the justice system disabled?

Well, its finally done. Scaliper II's reign has finally been brought to an end. The despotic prick had us all working on his freaking tomb and 'royal' bedroom, while the rest of us try to eek out a living. We've got demons to the right, demons to the left, demons downbelow, and goblins on the top! He even took us off freaking patrol duty on the Hellbunker!


I mean it nice, but what could be more important then shooting demons?!

As I sat around the dining hall the other night, I heard others complaining about Deathgate's overseer. "Scaliper made me do this, Scaliper made me do that, Scaliper made me eat my dog!". That sort of thing. I knew what had to be done as I finished off my barrel of wine.

As it turns out if you want to stage a coup, all it takes is a few drinks, and a brief trip to the armony. Bit surpising how easy it was in all actuallity ...

Scaliper, once cornered, agreed to give up his throne. Were it not for his former military service, and the simple fact that he did manage to reclaim the bunker, I suspect we would have had executed him right then and there.

It should have been obvious that our actions had left Deathgate without a leader. Indeed, the thought of who would lead had dawned not long after. This leads us to what I've come to call Id's First Rule.

Rule One: If you are going to overthrow the ruling idiot, be prepared to take that idiot's place.

Really wish I knew rule one before I opened my freaking trap.

Seems that since this coup d'état was my idea, I should be one to lead Deathgate "to a new and glorious future, yadda yadda yadda".

Bloody hell, I'm a Marksdwarf and a Seige Operator, not an overseer! It seems there's nothing  I can do about it. My compatriots will not hear a word elsewise. Seems I'm doomed to this fate ...

I spoke to Scaliper this morning in the barrack. Turns out that he didn't force those freaking idiots to do jack. Nor did he force any dwarf to eat their dog. I spoke to those bozos immediately following. The conversation went something like this:

"So, did Scaliper really force you to eat your dog?"

"Uhhh ... no. Was a bet. But, you know, that's alright. Overseer always supposed to prevent us from doing something stupid, right?"

I punched his lights out then proceeded to bang my head on the wall. This led me to formulating Id's Second Rule.

Rule Two: No matter what you do, somehow, someway, someone will always blame the overseer. Even if you didn't do anything ...

Now knowing rules one and two, I really wish I didn't open my trap.

As an apology for usurping him out of office, I've let him keep the position of militia commander.

My term officially starts tomorrow. Already I can tell that there is a lot to be done. I saw Ducim clanking by with a half-adamanite/half-iron set of armor, and I can suspect some of the other idiots that serve as our military probably went and did the same thing.


I however have a grand plan on how to turn our army of losers into an army of winners ...

At least narrow it down a little, in Deathgate, that could be anything. Not even Potashmakers are safe.

Hows about a swordsdwarf if there are any, with a candy sword and, if possible, naked. So that all any who oppose Deathgate will know our insanity!!!

Legendary miners ARE deadly

...

When using a pick.  Which is useless against demons it acts much like a spear, to my limited knowledge.

Picks act like a lot of things. They have a few different surfaces to work with, unless I'm mistaken.

Also, last I heard, spears are very effective against demons, forgotten beasts, et cetera.
