Always looking for more overseers, feel free to sign up. you only live once(unless your Urist mc-bond. In which case, you only live twice.)


Thank Hugo_The_Dwarf for this picture.

This is a succession fortress. That means that each "turn" is one game year. From spring until the following spring. Once your turn is over, you give the save to the next person on the list(That means you post it on Dwarf Fortress File Depot, your not really exclusively giving it to one person, that's just not fair).

This fortress is currently using Regeneration, a mod created in collab with Hugo_The_Dwarf, myself, and Deon. (I came up with a lot of the ideas, Hugo did all the actual modding, and Deon came in and helped make a few creature tiles.) BEWARE, THIS FORT IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!

Goals:
Here's the idea, every time the fortress dies/gets boring, we will change worlds, so every so often you might find that professor Lloyd(or his successor) has created a hole in time and space, changing worlds. Your goal is to survive long enough for the next overseer to take over. Simple? I think not.

Rules:

1# Unless your 110% sure the fortress is sunk, don't destroy it on purpose.
2# Make your "journal" interesting! give your character a personality! don't be all like, "I made a building, a dwarf died. the end."
3# If you haven't already found what is below adamantium, then just don't dig it up at all.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
4# FEEL FREE TO SWEAR!
6# There is no rule #5.
7# The current overseer of the fortress is responsible for dorfing people, not me.
8# Do not post here if your just going to feed into an argument.
9# ALWAYS post the save file, no matter what happened to the fort.
10# re-turns are allowed.
11# never savescum unless you think it's 100% necessary.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
12# You're allowed to do an alternate universe(do your turn during another person's turn, using the same or older save) WITH my permission. I don't want this thread to collapse into turmoil because everyone is doing one all at once. There's no time limit for alt universes, you can take as long as you like to complete it.
13# There's no limit for your turn, but try to give us an update or some sign of activity every so often so that we know you haven't just vanished.
14# Anyone who mentions My Little Pony shall be nailed to a burning titan, then blown up.
15# Mentioning the fact that the "#"s are on the wrong side will net you a free decapitation.
16# There is no spoon.

The Outrageous Boat: Poem(This was written before Project Flash Freeze)

Through the fires and the blaze...
Through the hills of evil...
Past the smoking goblins...
There she lies.

Enter the halls...
Open the doors...
Close the vents...
I SEE YOU.

THROUGH THE NIGHT AND THE DAY,
PAST THE BLAZE AND THE HAZE,
BEYOND THE SHADOWS OF THE VOID,

WE!
WILL!
RISE!

In the halls and each room,
Past the gloomy dark goons,
That evil par-a-site!

Rise today,
Fall tonight!

Wake up.

I can keep any fort up and running. Well, at least all the ones I've seen are manageable.

I don't think this one's any different. Also, could you post a general overview of the fort and any goals/rules/stuff we should know about?

Also, you don't need a mod to play a fortress with a mod. The mods are automatically stored in the raws folder in the save so any DF of the same version or higher can run the fortress with the included mods.

the population is between 100-120 or so. so no need to worry about not having enough to be dorfed.
EDIT: but plenty to worry about when they begin to kill themselves from a screaming ghost depriving them of their sleep and generally making them go mad, but that's still the least of your problems.
