    Default Wiremod Dwarf Fortress Bloodline game

    There's a bunch of us on the irc that play DF, so I think we should do a bloodline or succession game. Now I'm going to steal the boatmurdered intro for those of you who know what that is...


    What kind of game is Dwarf fortress?

    In a nutshell, Dwarf Fortress is best described as a 2-D base building game in the theme of Dungeon Keeper. The concept is simple, the graphics are simple; but the depth of the game is fairly awesome. (Even more amazing when you realize it is all the product of a single man gaming company.)

    The dwarves you "control" are somewhat autonomous. They have likes, dislikes, and needs. While you can assign them specific duties and set basic orders, they have minds of their own and will act according to how they feel. You can give them a job, but that doesn't always mean they'll do it right away. Injuries to all animals and dwarves are tracked, down to internal organs and body parts. Dwarves have moods that are affected by the things around them. They can decide to throw a party for their friends, or they might stress out under strain and suddenly kill each other with little to no warning. Female dwarves occasionally get pregnant and, if they are exposed to trauma (say a goblin siege); they very well might miscarry. Sad thoughts caused by things of that nature can lead dwarves to tantrums or even suicide.

    You begin with 7 dwarves and scarce few supplies at the face of a mountain. Your only objective is to survive the elements while building yourself as cool a fortress as you possibly can before you inevitably die. Simple enough, yes?

    The game is displayed in a pseudo-ASCII style, which uses letters for objects in the game world, similar to Nethack. I hear you groaning, but you'll quickly catch the hang of things. The players provide excellent explanation of what is going on in each screenshot. I've included a general key to some common items, below; should you find yourself needing one.
    [/plagiarism]
    tl;dr Dwarf Fortress is much like running a mental asylum, full of dwarfs.

    Ok, so how a Bloodline game works is each player gets one (game) year with the fortress then RARs the entire game and gives it to the next player. The reason for this is because sometimes the save wont work with different settings or versions and fixes. We'll also probably use the Mayday graphics edition as it also has a few fixes that fix things and a majority of our local players use that version. If you don't like it you can change out the tile set yourself but everything else has to stay the same.


    This is the Obligatory list of players:
    1. Jat Goodwin
      ITSBTH
      Magos Mechanicus
      Fox682
      Vbitz
      joeyjo0
      Arni
      HP


    If you don't know how to play or aren't very good you can chose to become one of the immigrant dwarfs on this crazed adventure. You will simply have a dwarf named after you and get to track it's progress or lack thereof. I usually name all my dwarfs after people on the wiremod IRC and some people seem to enjoy checking in on how "their" dwarf is doing.




    I think that's good enough for now.

    IMPORTANT!
    I'll be keeping this thread heavily moderated. Once we get a list of players sorted out the posts will be deleted and we will start the game. Rulers of the fortress, when they hand it off to the next player, should provide a detailed post with notable events and screen shots.
    Shit posts that have no real content and are just like "lol" will be deleted.

    Now LETS PLAY DWARF FORTRESS!

    Count me in. I have some experience, with two small fortresses under my belt.

    Also, for anyone completely new to the game, I recommend this tutorial. Dwarf Fortress is a game that's hard to learn by doing at the start, and this one starts small and builds up the complexity gradually which is great.

    Probably? Of course I'll play.
    Which version do we use?

    We want a successful fortress, not a blood bath. Oh, and all elves must die. The spice must flow.

    Ohh, I'm so in.

    Also, FFF NO NOT MAYDAY. Why does everyone use a shitty tileset? Use ASCII, FFS.(Well, I use Herrbdog's, but it's still ASCII)
