A dwarf fortress succession game. One year per player. Upon arrival feel free to dwarf yourselves. I'm still a new player but I'm sure I can get us through the first year.... Psychotic Rulers Vay - Shouting at traders, digging, starvation, setting up workshops. Woodrat - Farming, trading, BOOOOOZE! Grumpy (never showed up, presumed trampled by elephants) Bloodfox (engineering and loss of logs) Vay * Armok damn them. Armok damn them all to a nameless tomb bricked into a rough wall, spat on and forgotten for all time by naught save the rats. Seems the latest sadistic punishment for causing a cave in that crushes the king's kitten is to be thrown on a wagon with six lazy Armok accursed excuses for dwarfs. Well I can see We're going to die alone and forgotten out here. I'm just a miner what do I know about running a hellhole? * Well we arrived, 7 dwarves, a wagon of junk, 2 wardogs (kenelmaster should have found them missing by now hehehe) and a couple of cats that refused to get lost on the trail. I ordered the wagon be torn apart for all the splinters it gave me and have started digging into the mountainside nearby to get a feel for the soil...... Armok perhaps has a sense of humor after all, above a chasm cut by the brook is a mighty peak. I gazed in awe at it's steep sides and as it's pure inaccessibility. He have immediately ordered the area on top be declared our new stockpile and am helping the other's haul out supplies up the hill while listening to them complaining. I then ordered the bookkeeper site a bridge across the chasm while I myself made the slopes around the peak impassable. He did such a magnificent job despite only having claystone to work with, he even fortified our side and is now working with one of the resent immigrants (bring our grand total up to 9 residents) to make it raisable connected to a lever. I feel confident nothing will be able to get to us once we pull that lever! Summer has come. I in the meantime have dug down into the claystone of the mountain and deep beneath the earth we have workshops and every dwarf has a bedroom. Not bad for a miner eh? But still they wine about the lack of a farm, to which a reply that is they would find underground soil I'd gladly use their carcasses as the floodgates. To shut them up I carved a fishing pier into the mountain next to the brook and made sure the brook is deep enough up and downstream to prevent unwelcome visitors and told the layabouts thats where they fish and get water. I only hope we do find soil soon or I'll lose my mind and smash their heads in with my pick. Might do that anyway just for the well of it. I don’t think I could take more that a year in charge of this place, I'm looking into my orders to see if I can't find a way out of this, pity we have no lawyers I'd get them to find me one then throw them off the cliff into the brook.
