We are the First Torches......a handpicked and highly unprepared band of seven dwarves set out on a journey of epic proportions to found the city-no-to found the kingdom, of Torchwood! Our foolish groups of dwarves do not stand a chance. Their deaths are inevitable, failure guaranteed. However, as foolish and naive as our chosen seven might be, against all odds they fight to survive; whether they fight for fame, fortune, women, enlightenment, or simply want to satisfy a psychotic urge to look death in the eyes, our noble adventures have begun a journey whose end we already know. It is the legend that the First Torches will create, the grief and glory along our journey that are un-foretold. You and I seek not, the knowledge of the First Torches' success, but the steps that together, we, took to fail. Will you accept this open invitation to fail with me as the kingdom of Torchwood pries open the pits of hell, fends off otherworldly invasions, and leaves everyone in a state of complete confusion!? Rules: Do not intentionally destroy/ruin the fort! Ask for help! Dwarf fortress is extremely complicated and hard to master! I think the standard amount of time per turn is one year(game time of course) After your turn is over upload the save so that other may continue(otherwise you will be skipped) Post some screen shots/short stories depicting your progress! (I could try and write stories for you if that is preferred) Seven dwarves seven rules. Rule six is skipped. Have fun! Suggestions Put some character into your dwarf! If it is not your turn you can still comment/add to the story of the fortress. Artistic or not: MSPaint(basically just making your own pictures) is your friend it can make the thread a bazillion times more enjoyable to read.
