  • ARMA II TG Dwarf Fortress Succession Game

    A bunch of people in our community are closeted DF fans - and it's time to come out!

    Who is interested in a succession game? I.e. A DF "multiplayer" game in which the save game is sent back and forth after each year of gameplay. It makes for good AARs!

    Who is interested?

    I am interested. I say we pick a good mod and use it.

      Re: ARMA II TG Dwarf Fortress Succession Game

      I'd probably be interested. I tried to do a search here for DF but kept getting team Fortres Two =/

      What kind of mods would we be playing?

      I'm also wondering if we should just hold this off until the next release, unless you want to do a little test run, then update? Maybe just do a community fortress until the update.

        Oh Lord, not a TG DF succession game.
        I have read the guides...
        I have heard the stories...
        I have witnessed* the madness that was... Boatmurdered
        The horror, the chaos, the insanity, the lava and the elephants, oh dear god the elephants...



        So, when do we get started? :D





        *Ok, witnessed is not the correct term, since I'm not part of SA and I've read about Boatmurdered when I found a link on TvTropes, directing me to the Archives, but I already used the word read and it was more dramatic anyway :p

            Okay, I'm in the dark here - what is Dwarf Fortress?

              There are no words to describe Dwarf Fortress, beyond that it is the ugliest game ever made with a learning curve the size of Mount Everest. And it's gorgeous.


              I'd be game, but I'm seriously rusty.

                Count me in, though I'm fairly rusty as well.

                Actually I was never very good to begin with...

                  Shoot till you run out of ammo, or until you're dead.

                    Guys it's a big test really. We can do one succesion game and see where it leads. Anyone is welcome to try. If they find themselves stuck or doomed they just pass it on. We also need to start talking about where we want to settle.

                      Obviously we want to settle in an interesting spot =) I've only played DF vanilla (well, with a modified Mayday's DFG pack, but that's pretty close to vanilla) so I don't know about any mod specific things.

                      I mean, we're going to be playing vanilla or with a mod? That should be the first concern, -then- we'd worry about a location to settle.

                      EDIT: Also, here's the DF webpage and here's the webpage to get DFG if you prefer that instead

                      Here's a screenshot I took

                      EDIT in reply to below: Vanilla sounds good to me, especially if we're just giving this a test run. One in-game year sounds good as well, at least it makes the most sense to me.

                      EDIT yet again: I would prefer a map with magma... perhaps an underground water source since I've never gotten to play with one of those...

                        No mods guys, just DF with mayday. We should establish the rules for the game. I suggest one season or year of gameplay each - with some basic rules: no intentional killing of dwarves or "griefing" by destroying the fort.

                            I am in!

                            The hungry, ignorant man immediately grasps that he is handed a fish, but is bewildered when handed a net. The man who shivers in the cold thinks happily of the man who invites him to sit by his fire, and somewhat poorly of the man who loans him an axe, flint and steel.

                              I too am pretty rusty with DF. On the bright side I have yet to have an outpost be destroyed. On the other hand I tend to play VERY conservately and I avoid taking risks. Then some new videogame takes my fancy and I stop playing DF :p

                              The only "mod" I have ever used was one of those graphical packs: Dwarf Fortress has to be played like it was supposed to be ;)

                              Edit: the problem I would have in participating in a succession game is that a) I couldn't write to save my life, b) I hate taking screenshots and having to modify them (sounds easy, but I have very little experience) and c) I wouldn't know where to upload them
