The Dwarf Fortress Thread
« on: March 03, 2015, 07:48:08 am »
Here we can talk about DF [both adventure and Fort Mode] in better detail without clogging up the other thread. Screen shots are awesome too.

In my latest Fort, I've finally reached Town level with a good 80 dwarves though I'm running into issues getting them all stable work. Colonization of the first set of the caverns goes well with all of the path-ways leading from off the map being sealed off so miners can finally get all that sweet silver ore. The second set of caverns is being much more difficult as several tribes of beast men and other spooky monsters have made their home there. Though annoying our brave Captain of the Guard 'Duncan' Honorbraces leads the charge against these savages and clears them and work now begins on the sealing process. On the third set of caverns, a full squad makes their home there to constantly battle against the Hungry Heads and other monsters that lurk. Admantine is found here and work has begun to mine it out.

Also, we should totes name dwarves after each other.

Nice Fort mate. I recent got a meat-shield Migrant wave with 20 effing dwarves in it, which now puts my fort at 100 dwarves. My last two artifacts [worth 1.3 million!] on their own was a admantine braclet and amulet. This is only my 3 year after starting the fort ..

I've found adamantine and I'm fully capable of taking on hell, but I haven't mined any yet.

Aye and if you ever do, you gotta post screen-shots mate and after driving off the hell-flith you gotta colonize Hell.

I will. Also I think I'll use this thread as a log and repost everything to Bay 12 when I get home because it's blocked at school.

Damn, I need to start playing this game again. My last fort died with my old computer, and it was going strong too. I had a fully functioning military plenty of dorms, food, etc...

My last fort that actually died due to in-game events was raided by goblins, my military was busy boozing it up so when the goblin menace arrived it was too late. The goblins pretty much blocked off all the floors. They'd patrol the stairs which would scare the dwarves away from escaping. They all slowly died from dehydration and starvation. With a Dwarven Child of about 3 years of age, being crowned king of the mountain home before he slowly starved and froze to death.

Kinda like in my first town in Banished. Everyone starved and froze to death... only that was because they were a buncha lazy dumbasses.

In a sad turn of events, the old Captain of the Guard died today but not before slaying a forgotten beast made of steel scales and acid spit. He punched that bitch so hard so flew back 7 tiles and into a lava pit. They had a long pitched battle with both sides having lost limbs. Captain will finally rest now, his journey over.

Did I mention the entire edge of my map (4x4) is outlined in cage traps?

Goblins came and died. I captured several. They will replace the captives I executed. I hope to use goblins to soften the demons when I conquer hell. There are less than last year - perhaps they are running out of soldiers. I hope they send recruits then, they have plenty of citizens.

Since the invaders always come out of the same place on the map, I've begun building walls around that area as well as more cage traps and some weapon traps.

Both dwarven and impish merchants came - but the fire imps dragged their pack animals through my lava moat and then got mad and left when they burned to death. Shit, there goes half my trade this year. I hope they don't declare war, because that would mean every singe civilization would be against mine. Bastiongate would probably end up as the last bastion of dwarfkind.

You guys should totally try the Dwarven Martial Art in adventure/arena mode.

Real fun, and the techniques actually work pretty awesome. Especially Aknunakith and Korumid abod.

Yeah, I've seen it and performed it. It's fun, but ironically humans are the best practitioners because of their size.

Magma forges are now up, numbering at 20. Factory-like mass production is now an ability which will be utilized post-haste. Another admantine spire has been eaten into and the first admantine breastplate has been produced.

Had a small fortress of around 20 dwarves with a burgeoning clay industry in the making, but that all changed when the WEREDEER attacked.

11 dead. The rest abandoned in their subsequent tantrum spiral.

At an approximate total up time of around two months, this has been my fastest failure by far.

I think my shortest fort was one day and that was when I started on a beach and then a tidal wave crashed down on my dwarves. Wet !FUN! was had.

I'm going to be the founder of Deathgate III, Slaughterhelm. I'm working on the mods I'll need.
