Few days ago I resumed playing Dwarf Fortress (I stopped when I discovered DoomRL =) and I thought I'd ask if there are people interested in trying a succession fort. I have never tried that myself, and I'm not very advanced player (my current fort is the first one where I managed to get a solid magma-based steelworks). But I guess being unexperienced isn't such a big problem, since DF is always *fun* anyway...

So, is there anybody who would play?

Edit:

Year - Player - Dwarf
1 - RSO - Erib Tunnêcik, expedition leader
2 - Klear - Klearol Rulolon, chronicler
3 - RSO - Kulet Duradushrir, sheriff
4 - Matt_S - unknown
5 - Kamikaze14 - ?
6 - ? - ?

Potential players:
Deathwind, Kashi, raekuul, Matt_S

I vaguely remember a few people were already doing this. But eh... I dunno, it might as well have been more than a year ago. They probably stopped.

Sounds good as long as it doesn't turn into another Boatmurdered...

Worst thing? That's what makes funny to play a succession.

I would join, but the dorfs would die in a few days under my management.

That's part of the fun, I think... still, we'll need more people willing to play.

Well, if it's like Boatmurdered and it's year-long periods, I can give it a try. But woe if my time comes, because I will sacrifice the dorfs to Armok xD

Hell, I'll put myself down as a potential. Been forever since I've played but it gives me the opportunity to record a game "in medias res" for my video stuff, and I doubt it's changed drastically enough for me to not know how to deal with the basics.

I'll keep tabs on this, but I'm a complete and total newbie when it comes to dwarf fortress.

I'm not very experienced with fortress mode, but I'd be willing to participate and create lots of "fun".  Hopefully the new DF version will come out soon...

Awesome! Designations across multiple Z-levels!

I'd like to play the succession fort in the new version, but it seems Dwarf Therapist doesn't work with it yet, and I'd rather wait for that.

In any case, there seems to be enough interest, so let's agree on the basics:

Does anybody have any preferences for:
- worldgen
- embark
- some voluntary limitations (i.e. no cage traps?)
- tileset/ASCII (BTW, does anybody know if it is necessary that all players share the same tileset?)
- time limit (in-game time and real life time)
- whatever else I didn't think of

I'd say it will be best for each player to play one in game year, and have one week (at most) to finish it. As for the other things, I don't really care. Maybe some kind of evil embark, to make it a little more fun...

I'd be interested, if there's still room.

Worldgen: Preferably a large world so we can get the perfect embark site. I'm very picky.
Embark Site:
Look for somewhere:
-Flat and cold, with as little vegetation as possible. (Tundras and deserts have historically run faster than sites where there's a lot going on with the wildlife. They also tend to lack Carp, Giant Eagles, and Unicorns)
-With at least three soil layers for most of it
-And no aquifers
-Except for in a second biome in the same site, so we have a water source
-Evil!
Embark Supplies:
-Lose the anvil, we can buy one later.
-Lose the axes, it's much cheaper to just bring a bunch of logs
-Bring extra food
-Bring extra booze
Embark Dorfs:
-If we have seven definitely interested, we can each design a dwarf.
-I would like to have at least two miners.
Tileset: We don't need to all use the same tileset.
Time Limit: As suggested - one year game/one week real per player.
Mods: No mods. (Utilities like Dwarf Therapist are okay, of course, but no world-gen mods)

I would be happy to take the worldgen and first year, and get our food industry up and running while we wait for Dwarf Therapist to update. Dwarf Therapist is awesome, but I only need it after the second year.

I think it will be better if everybody just claims a dwarf when they take over. Accidents happen after all.

As for you handling the worldgen and first year, that's fine by me, since I hate starting new forts from scratch.

BTW, Dwarf Therapist seems to support the new version now, so nothing stands in the way. Start when you're ready, I'll take the second year and whoever else wants to reserve his place, just post in this topic and I'll update the original post with the list.

Blah.

I tried running Fortress. This computer and the other one I have... neither one can run it reasonably well enough. I will be forced to be a spectator.
