Dorf fortress-Succession game



  • Okay, I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, This is the basic idea:
    Overview
    We play dwarf fortress in dwarf fortress mode (obv.), I’ll pick the embark destination, play for a year, post the save and pix as well as a general back story on the goings on in the fortress during said year. The next volunteer will do the same then pass it on to the next person. In order to make this well organized Ill have a list of players and the order that we are to play in previous to us starting.
    What is dwarf fortress?
    Dwarf fortress is a strategy sandbox simulator, in essence you are a god who indirectly controls dwarfs (i.e. orders them to do something, they are not, strictly speaking, going to follow what you tell them to do the moment you tell them it or ever in some cases) and attempt to run a fortress via these means. The game is one of the most complex games ever created due to the massive amount of information  that is ascribed to objects ingame, such as an individual dwarf, who not only has a name but different preferences, properties, and backstory. It is for this reason that the game’s graphics are made completely out of ASCII characters, for if the game was run in a 3d graphics engine it would be for the most part unplayable. Although tilesets do exist if one wants to change the look of their game.

  • A year? Are you talking about an in-game year?



  • Yeah, sorry for the lack of specificity.



  • And what if someone does something awful, revert to the previous year?



  • Depends on how far we are in (how many years) and how entertaining it is.



  • I read on lparchive about a fight to the death between all dwarves where one won. He was dual wielding axes and in the middle of all the bloody mess and bodies was one dwarven child, overly happy about the situation.

    This game is too random.



  • I think you mean, too delicious



  • Mayday graphics are sooo much better.



  • Thats cool, too bad the games are not similar in any way if you are talking about the rts mayday



  • but yeah just post if you are interested



  • Dwarf Fortress 2: More Autism Edition



  • you’ll never have moments of sheer autistic terror like you will have while playing dwarf fortress and hearing the music as a dwarf pops a bottomless underground chasm opens.  You lock the doors and find a pet stuck in the middle of a door so you can’t lock that one, allowing the horrors to start perusing your fortress as dwarfs start trying to rush in sheer retardation around the other burning dwarves to bury the freshly slain dwarfs.  This ends when you bring some dwarves out onto the grass, pop an underground river into your fortress, and then wait for the fucking carp to eat the abominations underground.

    those fucking carp.  biting the shit outta things since 199x.



  • thankfully the carp is now nerfed
