I remember someone saying on the Bay12 forums that when in doubt, it's probably based on Lord of the Rings.
You better be able to be a vampire.
I just realized I have a feminist fortress... out of my 16 dwarves, 4 are men! Is this normal?
a Roc arrived at my fortress I lost no lives but a few limbs were severed.
But they will probably die as I have no soap.
Also anyone else having problems turning plant fiber into thread? It keeps on spitting error reports at me.
Got shot in the leg, fell down, slaughtered a dozen people whilst on the ground, and now I am proceeding to strangle a man with my leg. WITH MY LEG.
Toady still needs to make guts a separate object when they're exposed, so you could strangle people with their own guts/your guts.
Or maybe he did and I'm behind with the times.
I hate when there is cave moss all over my fortress. Anyway I could remove all this shit?
Damnit my dwarves names all turn yellow and then they stop doing anything, usually after they try to sleep with no beds, but i can never get enough of the fortress done before it happens.
I'd recommend getting a dormitory up ASAP when making a fortress, have your carpenter working on beds outside while the miners dig it out (you could make that into the barracks once you start making proper bedrooms.)
Ok hit cave layer three and found sweet, sweet cotton candy, but my primary concern at the moment is magma. I will be constructing a pumpstack with 3x3 chambers to decrease fpsdeath. Should I get dwarves to man(dwarf?) the pumps or should I try setting up power, I am also not too keen on using infinity motion machines or other such nonsense, but I might if using windmills and waterwheels from the surface is too big of a clusterfuck. Any ideas?
I now it's more realistic now, but I miss the screw pump gyms
We should restart that succession game Antary started a year ago. That was fun.
Until Antary showcased that his methods of forming a story were lackluster after I kicked it off with a group of convicts as the original 7. Then things went downhill.
They could worship plump helmets and booze. The fort could be entire levels dedicated to the mass production and sale of holy booze.
The fort would need a grand temple where booze can be sacrificed to the booze god and heretics(non-booze drinkers) are burned in a holy alcoholic fire.
That bug, lmao
Fortress megaproject is a massive temple built out of precious metals and obsidian/flux, with a large chair (think Lincoln Memorial size) composed entirely of Adamantine.
Ok that's cool, chicks don't reside in pastures. Because I totally want 100 chicks running around my fortress!
I'd love to play a succession game. Never tried before, but it sounds great.
So I got a spam email from a guy with an odd name, he was called Mr. *-* but the *'s were the value icon from dwarf fortress. I immediately thought of how excellent the quality of this spam was.
also we should get a succession game started then.
I can't equip metal armor I've found in Adventurer mode. I have a two small iron high boots and a small steel mail shirt. I'm wearing nothing on my feet and upper body, and I can't get the items I want to equip to appear in the equip menu.
A succession game sounds awesome.
I would love to have a go at a succession game. Think it'll be a serious one of trying to achieve something or a Boatmurdered style one of just fucking around and telling a story?
And so it begins again.
The Facepunch curse.
Would this curse be the one where we spend several days debating over who will start the fortress and the order of players proceeding after, only for the very first or second person to never pass along and/or finish the save, thus breaking the legacy and putting all supposed players into a great big slump?
Maybe it'll be great. Maybe it'll be dead in a few days. And even then, no one has much to lose.
All the succession games fail because people take forever to play their turns or fuck up the save file or some shit. If we were to do this each player would have only 2 days to complete their turn or they're skipped.
Edit: Also, Succession threads in the let's play subforum are always forgotten, I don't know if this is against the rules, but I think it would be best if the game is kept in the megathread.
