    Freezing sand desert/tundra with a magma pipe in the center and an aquifer in the first layer of sand. The only place to survive would be inside the warm obsidian right on the edges of the magma pipe.

    We're bringing 30 pieces of bauxite for magma pumps and a pre-trained mechanic.

    Fire and Ice. Good idea yes/no?

    Shit. The aquifer is going to flood into the magma pipe chamber.

    I can probably get the miner on the side near the stairs out, but the one standing next to the breach is almost certainly going to die from the steam in the confined space.

    Dwarves got out fine. Seems like we'll get a solid layer of obsidian, with some weird pillars from the splash-back onto the new layer. We should still be able to mine down past it through one of the dry side columns.

    But seriously op, make a glass tower that pumps water and magma. Encase your glass tower in obsidian.

    now for story time

    I once created a seaside fortress for the purpose of whaling. Upon settling, I dug my way down to the coast, which was blocked by a cliff.

    When I made my way through, there were dozens of dead carp on the shore. One of them mauled a dwarf trying to pick up some armor. They were amphibious zombie carp. I had built an ocean fortress at the edge of an evil undead sea.

    I built a huge gate in the cliff wall, and sent down recruits to test their mettle against the zombie carp. Several made it, several died.

    After several in-game years I was accosted on both sides; zombie ocean on one, and humans angry because like retards their trading carts would try to make their way to my fort up the undead carp-infested beach, but they held me responsible for the deaths.

    The whole of my army was engaging the humans, and I had a lone watchmen at the sea who was firing crossbows into it for some unfathomable reason. I got a death report and saw that a giant undead skeleton whale with several crossbow bolts in it had come out of the water and killed the watchmen. It smashed the gates and made its way for my dining hall.

    Then I saw that a dwarf had become enraged. It was my miner, who was best friends with the watchman that died. Inconsolable, he flew at the monstrous creature with only his pick and the clothes on its back. It tail-swatted him into a wall and broke both of his legs, but so full of fury was he that he crawled up to the whale and delivered a mighty blow to its skull, killing it in one stroke.

    He then crawled over to the corpse of his friend and quietly died there a day later. I erected two ballistae stations pointed at the ocean, named after them.

    Having started as your standard DF, the Hamlet of Tyranny was uneventful by normal standards. Sure there would be caravans and immigrants and occasional (though unusually rare) seiges, but there was a dark and DEADLY secret buried beneath the hills. And his name was Ashmalice.

    Ashmalice was a fire demon of legendary status. Not only had he existed in the prehistory of the fort, but he had over 550 kills - which included 2 entire tribes of goblins, a handful of elves, and a terrifying ammound of dwarves... one of whom was the king of the mountain-homes.

    Fast forwarding to the present time major construction was underway of the fort. Many many immigrants had arrived over the years and times were good for the dwarves. Having many legendary carvers and warriors my friend grew lax in his defenses. And his dwarves paid the price when a miner unearthed a glowing pit deep below the dungeons carved into the mountain.

    Within an hour my friend's fortress was besieged by a nearly unending horde of demonic horrors. Ill equipped to deal with the threat immediately, the population of the Hamlet began dropping exponentially. Not even a panicked redirection of the river into the lower levels was enough to staunch the influx of demons, only enough to slow them long enough for the major walkways to be collapsed to buy some precious time.

    Luckilly (and cleverly) my friend had built his fortress in such a way that if any large section had collapsed, then all escape routes would lead out into the wilderness and on a path far from the fortress and defendable by collapsing the ceiling via lever to flood seawater into the tunnel. Though no dwarf was alive on that side of the map, or able to reach it to pull the lever, my friend had bought the dwarves much needed time, though when Ashmalice made himself known all seemed futile. Even moreso when Stuvok lost his mind with rage.

    Stuvok was one of the founding 7. He was an ex-miner turned blacksmith of legendary status. He was a monster of a dwarf that all dwarves aspired to be. And he had just lost his wife Doken (another of the starting 7) to the demon Ashmalice. His sorrow was felt by the surviving clan as he tore through them one by one unopposed. Only when he ran into his workshop and was locked in did his rage abate.

    Morale was rock bottom. Several dwarves commit suicide in this dark hour. And of the handfull who remained of this once great fortress, few were willing to do anything at all, except the only other remaining dwarf of the founders: the engraver Sil. In the months that followed, the floors were carved with graven images of his follow brethren. All hope seemed lost. But this was not the end for the Hamlet. Not just yet...

    In his grief and mourning, Stuvok opened his heart to the spirits of the dead. And one day they came to him in spirit. In his posessed mood he plotted and planned and (ironically) with the materials available to him, crafted an artifact clearly in homage to his wife: Endless Death of Tears - a sword with an image of a dwarf holding a piece of glass - glass that his wife used daily in her trade.

    My friend had been content to just flood the map with lava and end the game after such losses. But upon seeing this artifact his neckbeard overtook him and he knew that Doken, the dwarves, the king, must all be avenged! And thankfully for me, he decided to continue. Fast forwarding again to the present (the time at which I had come in to see him play) my friend had safely excavated what he could of the fortress and moved all activity to a small corner of the interior. When all levers were erected, dwarves armed, and preparations complete, he unpaused the game for me.

    A few dwarves made suicide runs to the bottom of the dungeons and collapsed them - which in turn lowered the debris above into a sinkhole that breached a large hole for the demons to pour from back into the fort. A few more dwarves valiantly fired into the oncomming tide of hate, but they were nothing but fodder that bought precious moments for the true plan to kick in. A masterfully placed lever that had yet been unpulled brought down the entire mountain through the legendary dining hall ceiling; crushing almost half of the intruding horde.

    As planned, the demons made a bee-line through the side hallways through rows of blade traps. Demons were chewed up by the blades, but still they came. And so did "He". Ashmalice not only avoided the fatal cave-in, passed the slicing blades, and bypassed the numerous flooding-trap chambers, but he and a squad of equally lucky frog demons carved and scorched their way into the final defensive line. Among their victims was Stuvok; unable to avenge his beloved. And the last handfull of dwarves were quickly reduced to 2 - Sil the engraver and the legendary captain of the guard, Daneken.

    As respected and powerful as Stuvok had been, Daneken was that and more. He was a god among his clan, and had once in his long career single-handedly repelled a goblin siege led by a cyclops, and had helped wrestle a dragon to death. And now armed with his dead friend's artifact sword, he was seeing red. Daneken had been stationed at the edge of a chasm (my friend's map had a pit AND chasm that had been unearthed, but it was amazingly only filled with tiny spiders that were easilly dispatched in the early years of the fort). A single bridge had been built to span the chasm, and would have been later expanded as housing. But that plan was no longer. And this was it. This was the end of the dwarves of the Hamlet of Tyranny. But they would not go quietly.

    As the demons approached Daneken threw himself at them in a rage. Ashmalice blasted him with demonic flames, but Daneken was imbued with the collective rage of his people and carved through the frog retainers with little signs of stopping. Ashmalice, however, had seen the deaths of a king and was not impressed with the antics of a lowly dwarf and sent him hurtling back onto the bridge - coincidentally knocking Sil over the edge. With his flesh scorching and his blood boiling, Denekan crawled to his feet just in time to see Ashmalice hover over him. With but a single push the fortress would be claimed by demons. But to my friend's and my own utter jaw-dropping amazement, it was the dwarves who claimed him.

    Daneken, in a testament to his dwarfdom slashed off one of Ashmalice's arm/wing and plunged Endless Death of Tears into his evil heart. Such was the force of the blow that the demon was hurled backwards off of the bridge and sent spiraling down into the unending darkness; spouting curses the entire way. With his clan and his king avenged, Daneken himself tumbled from the bridge. But... one dwarf remained?

    Awestruck by what had just happend, I urged my friend to quickly find the survivor! The menus opened, the tabs clicked, and we see that name. Sil. Sil? But he fell into the chasm! What was going on? With the battle essentially over and the remaining demons blocked from furthur intrusion by an unchecked flood of river water, we peer into the chasm. Several Z-levels down, on a tiny 2-square ledge, lay Sil - broken and bleeding, but alive.

    With no way to save him, and with his entire clan residing in the afterlife, we debated how this should end. Should we just abandon the fort outright? Should we try and kill him somehow? What? In the end, however, we decided to let him create one more carving - one last testament to dwarfkind. This decision did not come lightly, as after such an epic climax, anything less would seem an insult. But still we left him to his work. Afterall, maybe he would draw a picture of a plump helmet or something equally random.

    What did he draw? Moments before he bled to death? Alone on a cliff? The last gesture of the dwarves of the Hamlet of Tyranny?

    A picture of a demon and some dwarves. The demon was in a fetal position. The dwarves were laughing.

    Well I'd Poetic licence the carving to be an account of the entire battle, and have the story be narated by Sil as he carves it.

    I'd use carving pictures of the dead so they will be remembered and don't die in vain be the central theme. Sil is the protagonist but doesn't do any of the asskicking. But by carving a record of what happened with his last breath, he makes his own heroic sacrifice.

    I made an Aztecan-fort that I swear was possessed by Armok himself.

    Now, bear with me: I have some kind of OCD that only allows me to play a fort for 5-6 years before I get bored of my legendary axedwarves and marksdwarves slaughter goblins and whatnot as they attempt to navigate through the labyrinth designs of my fortresses when in defensive mode. I can't remember the name of this particular fort, but I do remember its features.

    I had decided to embark in a jungle with a volcano, as this particular fort followed one constructed amidst frozen peaks and icy crags, so I thought a change of pace would be nice. Warm climate, carp-less river, everything was looking peachy.

    Now, the design of this fortress was interesting in the way it evolved. The flow of ore and magma 'neath the earth mandated that the core design of my fortress should not be symmetrical, something that bothers me. So I simply relegated the peasants and such to the underground, where it was hot and loud and probably smelled like shit and sulfur. They weren't too happy about it, but a legendary brewer/cooker combo managed to maintain their moods enough to wear I didn't need to worry about such trivial things as "living conditions."

    Above ground, however, was a different story. It was beautiful, with towering marble walls patrolled by squadrons of marks and speardwarves. Mansions, some with walls of silver and gold, stretched high above the fortifications, palaces for kings and nobles and legendary dwarves I liked. All-in-all, it was a pretty awesome place to be, and when I revisited the place as an adventurer it always stunned me.

    So one day, a dwarf gets moody and demands shells and diamonds and stuff that I didn't have and didn't care to give him, mostly because I knew he'd be a legendary woodcrafter and would be otherwise useless. Anyway, he goes insane and decides to commit suicide by jumping from the highest cliff he could find-my newly constructed temple.

    The temple was to be the megaproject that stretched 20-Z levels to the heavens and overshadowed the courtyard and entrance to the underground. It was tiered, with a ramp leading to the top, and I had left the inside hollow so my philosopher could have a neat room. It was pretty cool, as I had constructed it from a hematite vein so it stood out against the marble and precious metals of everything else.

    Immediately after the dwarf drops off, another dwarf goes creatively crazy and scoops up his skull, then proceeds to adorn the fuck out of it with gold and silver and precious gems. I think its pretty awesome, so I give the newly-achieved legendary bone worker a mansion and continue on my merry way.

    Several months of sieges pass, and the caged prisoners begin to pile up. However, one of the newer military dwarves is killed, and it upsets his legendary miner wife who goes insane in the lower galleries. Now, I don't want send marksdwarves down there, because I'm sure she could do some damage and I don't want to lose her either, so I just ignore her and decide to splatter some prisoners-mostly goblins and a few elves. Aas soon as the first gobbo hits the pavement, the miner calms down and goes back to work.

    "Huh," I say to myself, and begin experimenting. Whenever something bad happens, I hurl a prisoner from the temple, and the results are usually favorable. Pretty soon the nobles start mandating hematite and ruby idols, the engravers churn out such works as "The Bloody Fist of Sacrifice," and the underground is washed with sanguine rivulets as gore splatters through the newly-installed grates.

    Its beautiful, glorious even, until one day, a particularly popular undergrounder gets a fell mood and slaughters a particularly important dude. I'm pissed, because I don't care if I have a legendary leatherworker, but the one he killed was a weaponmaker and fuck if I'm going to let that stand. So, like a fool, I devise a way to drop him into the volcano and watch him crisp.

    Suddenly, everyone is fucking pissed as hell. Nothing could satiate them as they boil out from the depths, picks clutched in their fists and armed with masterwork weapons looted from the foundries. The nobles, of course, are soft from their lives of luxury and slaughtered, and when the mayor dies the entire fortress goes into convulsions as marskdwarves are sniped by their brothers-in-arms and speardwarves skewer passing peasants and pets. The entire fort is stained bloody, and only the philosopher, content within his temple home, is spared from the massacre.

    So yeah. Don't get too complacent when it comes to Armok, friend. He's out there, despite what worldgen might say.

    Hey OP, I cant be asked to read through the entire thread, I just wanted to ask, how did you get your colours to look like that? I don't like tilesets but those colours look nice, did you have to edit that last bit in the init?
    >> Anonymous 11/06/09(Fri)09:03 No.6591560
    I think that story has been retold a few times on /v/, with a bit of creative license each time. A comic of it would really help clear all those up, if it was done by the right person.

    That was based on a typo, not on the wrestling system. I was there when it was made.

    I never noticed he was actually pulling his liver before.

    It's not really much of a joke though, unless there's something critical I'm missing?

    Somebody said something about how he had a dwarf go pull the liver and drown the elves in magma. A drawfag found this typo amusing and made the picture. There isn't a whole lot to get, broski.

    The least you could do is make a drawbridge. I think its b > g then press wasdx to determine which direction it raises or if it retracts. Build a lever in your meeting hall (b > t > l) then connect it to the bridge using mechanisms ('q'uery over the lever > a > b i think). Pull the lever with a > P whenever trouble comes. Lever is in the meeting hall so there is always a spare dwarf close by to pull it.
