well, if we did this I would insist myself or someone else who has a firm grasp on the game to start, it would actually be a good opportunity for other people who want to learn the game to learn, as they would be able to hop into a functioning fortress

they could still accidentally kill everyone, but thats just one of the fun risks.... but as someone who has INTENTIONALLY tried to kill my fortresses several times I know that once they are up and running they can take a bit of carelessness without much danger.


unless that carelessness is starting a tantrum spiral with a legendary fighter dwarf, THAT will end a fortress pretty fast, haha

It's been years since I've played this game. I'd assume by this point it models the evololution of different cultures of bacteria and viruses and the Fun and profitable things those strands do to Urist?

I'm in if we do it.

I had a fort over the summer that I used to fight off two forgotten beasts. Also, if you want to win, make sure you use mothers in your military; when their children die they become enraged and better fighters.

the problem with mothers in the military for me is that I train my dwarfs in a flooded floor spike danger room. and if a baby goes in there it gets impaled or drowns. (sometimes regular dwarfs get impaled too.... but thats why we call it a danger room ;) )

a legendary macedwarf, fighter, dodger and shield user tantruming into your great hall can end a fortress pretty quick.


though my other favorite ways to train are by trapping a necromancer behind a fortification so he can keep res-ing some body parts for everyone to fight. and by having a dump pit that I can dump goblins into that nearly kills them so my noob dwarfs can kill them with no injury... danger room is the fastest though so I usually use it even though its cheating

Danger room is easily the cheesiest way to train. Do you ever use groups of marksdwarves? I have an irrational love of crossbows.

So if we do hold a succession game would we use vanilla DF or use a mod set?

I've only played with the lazy noob pack, I REALLY like having DFhack even if I never use it for cheatsy things like spawning items

I cant play without being able to use my mouse


as to marksdwarfs. I double train my dwarfs as hammerdwarfs and marksdwarfs (since hammer is what marksdwarfs use in CQB) and keep hammers in whatever fortified room they are shooting from.

I've always been a purist snob that plays without mods, but I think that's more to do with my being lazy than anything else. I've heard that DFHack allows you to search stockpile settings lists, which would make designated a Tallow-only stockpile much easier than it currently is now. I'm down with whatever; I'll just need instruction on installing mods.

if we use the lazy noob pack dfhack comes pre-installed, along with dwarf therapist and legends viewer, both of which I like a lot

I suppose there's some appeal to Dwarf Therapist with the recent release. The new Beliefs/Goals/Facets system takes a lot longer than the old Personality Traits system to spreadsheet.

well, the real appeal to dwarf therapist is more easily assigning tasks and jobs, seeing what you have and what is open. also being able to see injuries after a battle. happieness, ect

After using Dwarf Therapist I can't play without it, it makes management so much easier.
