Dwarf Fortress Thread.

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

Dwarf Fortress is a simulation of sort where you care for dwarfs. Add Murphy's law and you'll understand the game's slogan: Losing is fun!


Here's some links.

But it's in the archives

I looked and looked. I didn't see one.

Oh this is a DF general thread BTW... Stories, questions anything really.. I might try to setup a succession game if there is enough interest.

I really want to play this. But I'm too lazy to spend 3 hours figuring out what to do and what to press.

A little less active than I used to be due to IRL. Hoping to be back up to speed soon-ish!

I modded a DF mafia game a LONG time ago. Stozu the legendary goblin warlord won :-P

My handler in DFMA is Caranha, I'm posting a new fortress I'm building at the moment, twistanvils, would love feedback.

Graphics packs?!!

Back in my day we had to dwarf fortress uphill both ways in matrix code!
Routine day with a dirt cheap brush
Then a week goes by and it goes untouched
Then two, then three, then a month
Then the rest of your life, you beat yourself up

I find the interface completely impenetrable and intimidating. And I play NetHack.

I'd love to /in for a succession fort. I don't want to start us off, but.
And yes, my avatar is of a dwarf being munched on by a carp. (:

Well, there are seven dwarfs, including a sheriff and a doctor. Two of those seven hope to someday rise to the statuses of mayor and baron. The rest are peasants doomed to mining and farming.
Man, I wish I could think of something. :(

Do we want to run vanilla or modded for the succession fort? I was thinking vanilla, but only because I haven't really modded my version yet.

So:

- Claus
- Nikanor
- KcdaSpot
- Ultima Avalon

That's enough to get things going. More people can Join midway too, or we just rotate the spots.

I'd say to play Vanilla - there is already enough to deal with.
Other than that, we have to decide:
- Map size: 3x3? 4x4?
- Population Cap: 50? 100? 200?
- Geography: Hilly/Flat? Hot, cold, glacier? River, aquifer/no aquifer/lake?
- Any other embark requests?

It is 2 AM now, but tomorrow night I can start a fortress and probably run the first year and post it here if we discuss the above :-)

Cheers,

My votes:
-Map size: 4x4.
-Population cap: 50. I never know what to do with 100 dwarfs and my computer isn't exactly the best anyway.
-Geography: Don't care.

I'm totally naming a dwarf after myself on my turn.

Is the booze supply plenty? check

I see no cruelty here
