    The title is an in-joke. You'll laugh even if you don't find it funny. Trust me.

    Alright, cool. As I find my life returning to me, I find I wish to mod an NES. A simple NES.


    Think Dwarf Fort- now think more free form.

    Still with me? No?

    Well. First off, I will need 3-10 people with whatever professions they will have.

    Then I need brief summaries for what they want done- think two or three minor actions. There doesn't need to be a "leader", but you can elect one or whatever. Doesn't matter. Your outpost could possibly function well if you all did your own thing, for the good of the group.

    Oh, did I not mention? You're just an outpost. A group of settlers. You'll start with some items, and a caravan or merchant will come along occasionally, and you can trade or barter with them.

    Everything is determined by the roll of the dice, fret not.

    Build a town, start a family, get married to another NESer, whatever.

    Everybody has to be a dwarf. How they get there, up to them. When they get there, up to me. Have a character in reserve and he or she will be implanted into the story. And yes, I have a story lined up.

    There will be no NPC dwarves, but there will be NPC other characters/creatures. Not all will be friendly, so look out.

    JOINING:

    Player/Character

    Full Name:
    Skills: 2 or 3. Pick whatever.

    Preferred profession: 1. Pick something that would be useful, if you're in the first wave; IE woodcutter, plant gatherer/forager, miner (as most of your settlement should be underground), herbician (herb doctor/magician) or whatever. Make it up as you go along.

    Items: clothes + 3 other items. Whatever. There may or may not be items with the group's starting stuff.

    Where did your character start? are they mercenaries, are they just plain immigrants? keep it as simple or complex as you want. "Immigrant" is fine. It adds flavor.

    Orders
    Spoiler Orders :
    Okay, some people are confused as to what they can actually do. Imagine you're one of eight people living in a single room unfurnished log cabin and no source of income or food. What more would you want? your own living space? a bed? new clothes? a bath? a farm? cattle? a clothesline? whatever. Just do it.

    Have you checked out NWolfNES, as it functions on similar principle?

    What climate are we using? Temperate? Hot?
    A town with only 10 people? Should there not be more?

    I've seen your NES, yes. It's good. Temperate. And no, 10 is plenty.

    A lone girl in the settlement? I'd feel entirely uncomfortable! Gosh! :blush:

    We should have some NPC females. They won't resist.

    It is my opinion that we ought to elect or appoint some sort of governing body so we can allot our resources more efficiently, and be more successful as a settlement. Who's with me?
