Hellcannon (Succession: Battlefailed 3) (0.31.25) (DEAD)

DING DONG THE FORT IS DEAD!

Spoiler: Quotes! (click to show/hide)

WELCOME TO HELLCANNON (BATTLEFAILED THE THIRD)

ThatAussieDwarf, Mego, The Master, Deathsword, gamewizardinnc, Urist Imiknorris, and Sinpwn gathered together in the Queen's chamber. They had all been summoned there by Her Majesty, Led Shakecannons, and were anxious to know what she wished of them. Given the fact that seven were summoned, they could guess what she had in mind.

"All seven of you are very capable dwarves. You stand up to any challenge and never back down. This is why the Mountainhomes need you. As you may have heard, dwarves who go off to a certain area of the continent never return. We have lost contact with all of our settlements. When we send caravans and migrants, they do not return."

The seven dwarves exchanged nervous glances with each other.

"You seven have been chosen to investigate what is going on. You are to build a fortress near the site of the disappearances and carefully observe the happenings. Report to us frequently."

Deathsword cried out, "But, that will surely result in our deaths!"

Led turned to Deathsword. "It is a necessary sacrifice. We must know what has happened to our settlements. That region holds some of the most valuable resources in all of Aluorna. Will you accept this challenge?"

Knowing that the question only had one answer, the dwarves hesitantly agreed to investigate the mystery.

It seems we took a wrong turn.

The others blamed me, and have decided that, despite my being expedition leader, we need a different overseer. Deathsword was unanimously picked to be the first overseer of our fortress. His first act as overseer was to declare the name to be Hellcannon. Whatever, man. I'll just lie low until it's the right time to take control.

LAST SAVE


A note to those unfamiliar with the storyline: This is a continuation of Battlefailed and Failcannon, but not a direct sequel. This fortress was created in a regenned world, due to no new fortresses being able to be made in the original gen. I've purposely left out the connection in the introduction. The community can decide on how it will be related. I have ideas, but it's up to everybody on how we do this.

Also, mods in this fort include:
1. Oar->cannon swap
2. Swapping nickel silver for bone blocks (didn't work)
3. Adding a reaction for blood bricks to be produced from blood spatters and such (has not been thoroughly tested yet doesn't work)

Note: Mego is incompetent when it comes to mods. Let someone else handle the mods next time.

And now, the image that sums up all of Hellcannon:

Dorfing List

Overseers, please keep track of the dorfings during your turn, and paste a new list afterwards.

If a migrant wave appears and the next overseer has not been dorfed yet, please give them preference.

If you wish to be dorfed, please post your request in the format of the entries on this list. Copy-pasting makes my everyone's life easier. Failing to do so may prevent you from being put on this list, and may cause bad things to happen to your dwarf.

Thank you, Darvi, for fixing this.

Actually, it's because there are only 2 males in the embark group, which I didn't notice until after embark. gamewizardinnc and Sinpwn were the lucky two.

There must always be a Crazy Cat Lady!

Dwarf request: Ledi, any profession (but changed to "Crazy Cat Lady"), needs "likes cats for.." in her description

I'm willing to wait until one arrives. ^^
Logged
So Ledi's been training the cats into an army of disposable warbeasts?  Why did no-one think of this sooner?!
Hellcannon seemed to be constantly on the verge of death and Levergedon before my turn helped, but ultimately what killed it was Ledi's cat army.

Better get in on this right away. I drooled and enjoyed every bit of Failcannony goodness, read through all the threads.

I'm interested in a brewer/speardwarf (whichever, or both even!) who is gruff but friendly. I'm sure not all of those things mesh or will happen, so I'll take anything similar enough. Call him/her Balnash/Balni.

Thanks!

I wasn't invited to the turn list? :o

I suppose it's only fair that I'm late to ask since I spent the day burning my own fortress to the ground and hanging out with women.

I would like to play, even if I must wait several months real-time. I would also like a dorf in the first possible migrant wave. Yet another long-time friend, ready to reinvent the apocalypse with some ancient souls...

I also think it would be wonderful to start composing that "Epic of Aluonra" at some point.

But then again, for every 4 sentences that begin with "I" comes a "B".

And I was actually hoping we'd wait for the fort to die, and the new version to be released. Hell, The ghosts haven't even started appearing yet! Nobody has written a full, detailed excerpt of the final, glorious battle of the damned!
A sequel is a sequel, but it does seem a little premature. Now? The question becomes "How soon can we engineer a horrendous, unrecoverable disaster and move on?"
I give you 12 years (What, 6 months real time?)
13 really is the unlucky number, isn't it? :P

Eric, you weren't on the turn list from Failcannon past Deathsword. Yes, this was a bit quick after Failcannon's demise, but it's been planned for quite a bit. Deathsword can write up the ending for it, and then take his turn here, if he so chooses.

Yeah I know I never requested another turn, I'm just requesting it in a ridiculous manner :P
And yeah I reread the last 4-5 pages of the Failcannon thread to see if I missed it actually being declared dead, couldn't find anything, which was a little concerning. Oh well.
