Ok So maybe I didn't play for exactly a year, but whatever. Arkbrik your turn.

For once, the kings advisers chose wisely in picking this as our outpost location. Theres a river, a chasm, a magma pipe, and plenty of ore. I probably could have chosen the location of the initial dig a bit better. The farming situation is dire.

Lots of copper ore, but so far no iron.

And the workshops.

I'm getting right on it.
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

may tip you off.

Farming? Oh bother. Please don't let the fortress starve to death, Arkbrik. That would suck.

I'm out of town for the moment guys, so I'll check this as often as possible. If I don't reply when my turn comes up, put me back a spot.

At least it was only a file upload fail and you hadn't saved over the file.

18th Galena, Late Summer, The Year 216

After three weeks on the road, I am glad to see the mighty peak of Razorcaught over the treetops. Tomorrow I will relieve the last overseer and put my mark on the history of this fortress.

19th Galena

Thank Armok I still have a few plump helmet biscuits in my backpack.

There is next to nothing to eat or drink in Razorcaught. The food stores are almost empty and there is no alcohol at all! Just in the meeting hall I count four starving dwarfs, sporting flat bellies like some bloody elves. If I don’t do something fast a rebellion will break out.

Image

Image

Why did my predecessor place the fortress on top of the mountain, instead of, you know, inside it? As it is, we are almost a day’s journey away from our farms, and all it takes to completely cripple our food production is that one farmer goes nuts from hunger and kills his coworkers.

We have two choices: The dwarves must come to the farms, or the farms must come to the dwarves.

The first option is unfeasible, since we will have to dig out an entire new fortress beside the farms and move all workshops there. The second option is difficult, but possible. Near the fortress runs a brook. If we dig a channel from it, we can pump up water inside the mountain and muddy the rock to allow farming.

Image

Image

Even as I write this, I see a dwarf gone mad with hunger chasing a rat down a corridor, trying to catch it and eat it. This place needs more than a new overseer, it needs freaking disaster aid.

22nd Galena

Today we lost a dwarf: Kadil Mebilothlest, Ranger. He died valorously while hunting food for the fortress. I bet it was the one-humped camels who killed him, they have been making a nuisance of themselves the last few days.

Image

25th Galena

A human guild representative showed up today and was just about to tell us her business when she fell into our new channel, knocking herself out. When will humans learn that dwarven workplaces are not playgrounds? I guess I’ll have to get her out of there so the humans don’t start a war against us.

Image

25th Galena, five seconds later

Oh, not again!

Image

This time I’ll wait until the whole channel is finished.

6th Limestone, Early Autumn

The human is out, and chasing our miners again. Won't she tell us what she wants already.

Image

13th Limestone

A caravan! Praise Armok! They better be bringing food, and lots of it.

Image

19th Limestone

There. I sold every little craft this fortress has produced for as much food and drink as we could get. This has bought us some time, but the farming project still has top priority.

Image

1st Sandstone, Mid-Autumn

The channeling dwarfs meet.

Image

With the channel almost finished, we can start constructing the screw pumps and train pump operators.

3rd Sandstone

The skulking human revealed her mission. Finally! If she had kept on prowling around the fortress I would have assumed her to be a spy.

Image

I asked the humans - even though I felt a little embarrassed in doing so - to bring us food and booze, just in case our farming project hit any problems.

6th Sandstone

A kobold thief tried to sneak in today, but he fled as soon as he was spotted.

7th Sandstone

Ok, this is what the humans will pay big money for.

Jeez. Looks like someone is preparing for war. Great writeup so far, Arkbrik.

8th Sandstone

Image

Another kobold! This one made it in, but quickly succumbed to a weapon trap.

18th Sanstone

Image

Good riddance. I don’t like having a human running around the fortress.

23rd Sandstone

Image

Unknown forces have seized control over our armorer Ònul. Hopefully this will result in some really nice armor.

27th Sandstone

Release the river!

Image

The screw pumps are getting completed, and we can soon start pumping up water to the fortress.

28th Sandstone

Zuntîr Lokumïdath had his thirteenth birthday today, and is now considered an adult. He will be trained into a pump operator since we will need a lot of those.

4th Timber, Late Autumn

Ònul is muttering about “bars… metal…” but seems unsatisfied with copper bars.

8th Timber

The pumping begins today!

Image

12th Timber

The merchants must have brought word about our plight to the king’s court! A hamlet liasion arrived and asked what we needed.

I asked for food, of course, seeds of many different types, and bauxite just in case we can’t find any here. We’ll need bauxite to properly exploit the magma…

16th Timber

Image

Turns out Ònul wanted aluminum. Aah, it’s good to see the crazy dwarf slaving away at the mysterious construction, muttering “Tathtatrít… Tathtatrít…”

It's been to long, was looking forward to this. Sign me up, but send an email to kellen.mccoy@hotmail.com when my turn comes up, or you will find me missing. One thing I love most about this game is quite simply: :trap:, a very complex one. :twisted:
