However there comes a time in every Civilizations story when the eyes of the many turn from home and gaze out into the great unknown, when they hunger for exploration and conquest. There comes a time for a new Dwarf Fortress. I am Litast Dedukngotol, this is going to be my log of the establishment and times of the Fortress of Treatywhispers, Ilraliklist. However I feel it fitting that we should take a glimpse into the past, a prologue if you will. I was drinking at my resident pub when he showed up, an envoy from the King. He asked me if I wanted to become a hero, to expand our glorious kingdom down out of the mountains. I was skeptical at first, why would I leave my home to go live in some remote fortress, so I could be known? So my life would mean something? No, I’d give up on that a long time ago. However there was something more, I could feel the great unknown calling to me, there was something out there for me, something I needed to see. It took weeks to build a team, if you can call it that. We are a ragtag band of misfits, rejects, those who feel no place in Meinhamarr. We are to voyage out into the wild and establish a new settlement, to form a new colony.[/i] Intro by [url=http://www.facepunch.com/member.php?u=455220]Liem[/url] [img]http://i.imgur.com/esJR1.png[/img] [b](subject to change)[/b] [b]1.[del] Dogchow33[/del] 2.[del] VistaPOWA [/del] 3.[del] hobothehero [/del] 4.[del] Liem [/del] 5.[del] Neo Kabuto [/del] 6.[del] person11 [/del] 7.[del] TM Gmod [/del] 8.[del] Terminutter [/del] 9.[del] wallyroberto_2 [/del] 10.[del] CaioLugia [/del] 11.[del] DeathDoom [/del] 12.[del] ThePinkPanzer [/del] 13.[del] Pokey McFork [/del] 14.[del] DrugUnit [/del] 15.[del] Liem [/del] 16.[del] Twistshock [/del] 17.[del] Dogchow33 [/del] 18.[del] person11 [/del] 19.

This could be you![/b] [highlight]SLOTS ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE![/highlight] [img]http://i.imgur.com/aJEnn.png[/img] I will strike out the names of those who have taken their turn, and you will be up for a new turn. However, you may not take more than 1 turn every 10 turns. If you are requesting a turn change or want out, don't hesitate to PM me and we'll work something out. When it is your turn, I'll notify you on facepunch with the region file. When turns are over, please email the data either to me or to the next person so it can get around. If this is not completed, it will be as if your turn never happened, and we'll have trouble writing up for it. Other tilesets can be used. You may take a maximum of 10 days to take your turn, and 5 days maximum to respond to the PM that I will send you to notify you of your turn, or acknowledging your new Overseer status in the thread and downloading the file. After those 10 days(or 5 days if no respond to PM or post in thread), the next person will either start where you left off or roll back to the person before you. [b]Turns work like this: 1. A report at the beginning of Spring when you arrive as a dwarf(or from any other perspective you wish to write in, but the player's is unacceptable.) 2. A report at the end of Spring containing all important events and any other random things you may want to put in 3. A report at the end of Summer containing all important events and any other random things you may want to put in 4. A report at the end of Fall containing all important events and any other random things you may want to put in 5. A report at the end of Winter containing all important events and any other random things you may want to put in All of these are posted in the thread whenever you complete them.[/b] All reports will be linked in the OP when posted for easy access.

Sign me up
Also just a note to everyone, make sure you know how to play DF before you sign up/it's your turn.
This will either be amazing or die quickly. I can't wait to play!
I want in as well [editline]16th July 2012[/editline] Also, make sure the first site has iron ore and flux, it is a must for a dwarfy civilization
[highlight]Arrival Report[/highlight] [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 23rd of Felsite, Late-Spring, 248[/b] The year was 248 when our wagon stockpiled with vagabond earnings of our endeavors left the land of the Mountain King in the northwest of the world known to dwarves heading south on my pocket compass. To be honest, I am intrigued at what the King meant about expanding the stretch of the Dwarven Kingdom when we we are heading to a region quite literally 10 feet away from another dwarven settlement. Nonetheless, we still are provided with a large amount of metals and other things scattered inside the grottoes below us. [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/zGHOu.png[/thumb] However, the Kingdom's head Adviser set us off quite well with I as a miner, another miner with some trading experience, which is quite ironic, as I reviewed his file something that caught my eye was a plump helmet man passed him in an IQ test, even while being at the further-left end of the Bell Curve. Anyway, the Adviser also set us off with a woodcutter with some masonry and craftsdwarfship experience, a jack-of-all-trades hunter, a quite skilled doctor, and a couple of rag-tag farmers who surprisingly have some musical talent as well. I'll have to see how this turns out. [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/ebaTL.png[/thumb] [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 1st of Granite, Early-Spring, 251[/b] The year is now 251. We are pulling up to a halt in the middle of a swampy type area and, as I'm getting out of the modest little buggy, to my surprise, no highlands are in my line of sight. I am now absolutely furious, I am on the brink of going berserk. No, I must not let my feelings overtake me. Although, I am now far more tired than I had been at any time during our trek across the oceans and far-stretching forests. From the time that we were attacked by mermen and bottlenosed dolphins, to our experience with the damnable mobile topiaries of The Wood of Mist, this by far was the most horrifying trial that I had to overcome. How could the King do this to us, telling us to settle in a so called [i]land of future and prosperity[/i], and not a hill or headland in sight. Who would want to live here? What kind of dwarf would want t- That's it. It makes sense now. The King is betraying us, sending us away from our homes, where we're safe! We are not settlers, we are not pioneers of a new age. We're just a rag-tag band of dwarves the King wants gone from his world. Why else would we be on an island thousands upon thousands from Meinhammar, grouped with other civilizations surrounded by a forest of bipedal trees along with a sea of lethal denizens? And if we destroy the trees, the elves will wage war on the entire civilization. The Mountain King is not my king anymore, but I can quite assume that I shall not let him know, for if I do, my friends and I are doomed to die to the ones that we used to seek for protection. I am simply going to have to fight my way off of the island, I told myself. I must warn the others of my findings, but first, a nap. Before I do, however, I shall quickly sketch a map of my prison. [img]http://i.imgur.com/jxWMN.png[/img] [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 8th of Granite, Early-Spring, 251[/b] I awoke to my fellow dumber-than-a-plump-helmet-man miner beating me with a gray langur's bone shouting "Wake up, wake up, you fool!" I quickly shoved him away from me, asked him what he was doing out of the mines. He said "I was on my way from the caravan when I saw you lying on this rock, so with the bone I used to pick my teeth, I beat your sleeping body into following my command and waking up." I gave him the demon's eye and walked off. I must thank him, however for he aroused me from my quite coma-like state. For this, I caught up to him and thanked him. I also asked him what the date is, and he replied with 8th of Granite. I had never fathomed I would be slumbering for that amount of time, so I was again baffled. Just then, a portly young lad from the villiage near us hopped over his fortress walls and ran up to me and handed me a small envelope labeled "For the Next". He said not a word and hustled back just as quick and again climbed up and over his walls. I was puzzled, who were these "Next"? I tore it open in inquisition and read the letter. My suspicions of the corrupt Mountain King were true. The people in this villiage had experienced the same as us, a seeing-off from the King himself and all. I quickly scanned over the letter(which contained warnings of black bears in the area, I shall be wary of my food supply and refuse stockpiles) [img]http://i.imgur.com/OPPih.png[/img] Without hesitation I ran to the groves where my woodcutter was finishing his work for the day, and explained the situation to him. I was quite excited when he believed me and agreed to help get us out of this hellhole. I am still weary of the fact that no hills are present in this area, but I am beginning to accept that above ground defense is the only way to go here. My new assistant woodcutter had already started building a staircase for the first above ground levels, I am formulating a plan for a fortress with only 3 elevated floors and the rest snug underground. A diagram of the stair plan: [img]http://i.imgur.com/MKEZg.png[/img] Fortunately, my back-of-the-Bell-Curve miner could not stand the fact of having quarters in an elevated town either, so he began to plot his path of mining, humming along, jubilantly and without debate doing his work. My guess is that it is a dining level of sorts, I think this man may fit right in. I worked alongside him and explain the King's treason to us over the sound of our metal picks driving into the rocks, and as I predicted his mind quickly adapted to the new way of life and thoughts. Quite a miracle that his emotions seemed to be unaffected. [img]http://i.imgur.com/uQIIL.png[/img] [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 9th of Granite, Early-Spring, 251[/b] The King has asked me this day to send my reports back to him so that he may be informed of the actions of our establishment on this new frontier as he described it. I am quite sure that even the Kobolds led by the rock-nuts-for-a-brain miner could do a better job at new frontiering than this King will be able to imprisoning the spawn of Meinhammar on this island. Since I cannot send the King my now personal account of these events, I must send fraudulent reports to him, however, as I have said I must not reveal any trace of knowledge of the Mountainhome's conspiracy upon their own kind. I shall report once again at the end of spring, however it is only the 9th of Granite. You may expect to see me in the final days of Felsite. Litast --- Spring report should be up tomorrow.
Oh god, pig tail cloth! There go something like 100 embark points :v: Not that they really matter past the first 6 months.
I am so in on this, also nice embark location.
I don't see this dying anytime soon, unless someone gives up. We have a good 12 years of playtime already.
do i really have to roleplay as a dwarf
only if u want bby <3
ok so no [editline]17th July 2012[/editline] good
Actually to be fair a good chunk of succsession games I've seen people tend to at least give the bare minimum. If you're not fond of roleplaying a sqaut, frumpy bearded alchoholic (and who wouden't want to be that) you could always just play your post off like a foremans log, mostly focusing on in games events and maybe only giving a bit of flavour text at the begining and end. Although, that's just my two cents.
After awhile someone should take some Stonesense screens of the fort, just for those who read the thread but don't play DF
[QUOTE=Liem;36812050]After awhile someone should take some Stonesense screens of the fort, just for those who read the thread but don't play DF[/QUOTE] We should get one from when it ends to put in the OP.
[QUOTE=nmagain;36811679]ok so no [editline]17th July 2012[/editline] good[/QUOTE] You don't necessarily have to be a dwarf but you can't write from a players perspective, it should be a creative piece of writing
Though I have xGrammarx, It would be fun to participate In a succession game like &#9788;Bronzemurdered&#9788;. Can I join?

[highlight]Spring Report[/highlight] [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 21st of Granite, Early-Spring, 251[/b] The torrential rain hasn't stopped for days, I can't see 10 tiles in front of me and our hunter, Reg hasn't been able to hunt and has just been cowering under the wagon waiting for it to stop, the bloke. In other news, me and the helmet-head miner Moldath Lolokingtak(I learned his name!) have been working diligently on the first floor of our rebel base, if you'd like to call it that. A kitchen of sorts has also been founded, and is alive already with the plots for butcheries, breweries and more. On my break I worked on this little creation to show our progress with that area. [img]http://i.imgur.com/5AIcQ.png[/img] [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 1st of Slate, Mid-Spring, 251[/b] The rain finally stopped yesterday, and Reg got out of the wagon. The carpenter Deler could not even collapse the wagon into usable wood without the hunter throwing a fit every time he got close. As soon as he got out, the wagon was deconstructed, and he didn't give a damn and went on his way lugging things around the soon-to-be fortress. I was quite baffled, dwarves can be very mercurial and childish at times. [img]http://i.imgur.com/xhSLO.png[/img] [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 8th of Slate, Mid-Spring, 251[/b] The rains have started again, what is Armok's name is happening to this island? Dark clouds have surrounded our plot, nearly blotting out the sun as the smoke from the destruction of Grainhammered had in 233. The vermin have been worse than these cursed rains lately, good thing I vouched to bring along a breeding pair of cats. [img]http://i.imgur.com/YLjCg.png[/img] Sometimes I think of the sea monsters of the treacherous evil sea surrounding the island, Harkblessed, using an unholy power to bring this upon us under the evil Mountain King's orders. The people of the village next to us may have quite some knowledge, being trapped here far longer than us. I believe I shall write a letter. [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 10th of Slate, Mid-Spring, 251[/b] The doctor Kumil fell in a murky pool today while fishing, and came out with leeches all over his body. We had to use a pick to get them off, now my pick is coated in his blood. Moldath tried to eat one, but I stopped him before he could get the damned thing down his throat. [img]http://i.imgur.com/B4ETY.png[/img] I also sent the letter over the walls of the nearby town, an elven caravan went through their doors today for Armok knows what. I will be expecting a reply in no less than a week. I took a peek over the walls, the buildings had many holes and it seemed to be nearing its end. The King's neglect for these towns enrages me quite so, I do not know how I may expect the fortress to survive. As the neighboring dwarves letter said, "with hard work comes sustenence." [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 14th of Slate, Mid-Spring, 251[/b] We are running out of plump helmets, booze production has stopped. We have enough to hold us however until the farming areas are mined and the first harvest is done. My colleagues are the laziest I have ever seen, they let our sufficient(albeit small) supply of fish go to waste. Hopefully my hunter is not as lazy, for there is a pack of wolves on the prowl somewhere, with a little help I'm sure he will be able to manage them. [img]http://i.imgur.com/lf6Za.png[/img] I got a reply back from the dwarves as well, the letter is as follows: [i]We are truly grateful for another settlement of dwarves in our vicinity. The elves have visited us recently to trade, but we offered them wood and they immediately packed up and left. I warn you to be wary of what you care to trade with the elves, any product that originates from trees will anger the merchants, enough of this and and they may impose a siege. Our fortress is crumbling into naught of the invasion by the humans, who were at war with our kind in the years 225 to 231. This happened ages ago, and the fortress is dying a slow death. I understand that we must abandon this foul place soon, and your little fort in progress seems very promising. I have been wondering if I may ask for your hospitality in exchange for hard work and a new group of the finest in the land. We may not be the richest, but we are on your side and for the extinguishing of the king's position with a closed mind. We are scheming to arrive at any given point in time during the summer if you take under your wing our cry for assistance.[/i] I was quite ecstatic, I quickly replied with a yes. I cannot bear to wait for the arrival of the harbinger of our escape from this wretched island. [b]Litast Dedukngotol, 16th of Falsite, Late-Spring, 251[/b] Days are reeling past me in a blur. The last month has been quite uneventful, other than the fact that we've finally struck some zinc ore by digging out some bedrooms for the seven of us so we aren't stuck sleeping on a boulder or some bamboo outside at risk to the wolves that Reg still has not disposed of. The bedrooms are very near completion, things around this hellhole are beginning to take shape.

My dwarves and I have been much happier and more comfortable because of the new beds, along with our lovely furniture to go in the rooms. A masonry is being built quite some distance above the bedrooms below, it was voted to not have the workshops outside any longer because of these terrible rains. Luckily, my hunter killed those wolves that were lurking around and trying to kill our fortress drake who left it without its wings, poor thing. Unfortunately, the wolves got a little too close and inflicted some critical wounds. I should have known the drake was not going to live, for the duck died a few hours later.

Litast --- The Summer report shouldn't be up this late tomorrow. I will do it ASAP. Any suggestions?
Liking what you have done so far, did the wolves actually attack the drake? because if they did you might want to go in to more detail than just one sentence, those are the exciting bits!
There's not much that you can go into great detail about a poultry case of fowl play.

I'd suggest that you name the initial batch of dwarves before the immigrants show up.
I hope you're using dwarf therapist to keep track of things.
