    @Fulton - You can only have 3 items and there is a communal Anvil so you don't need that.

    No, doesn't work like that. Sorry. Start as a skillless nobody, it'll be easier to adjust to your stats that way.

    Luckymoose: make a dude, build censored, kill some elves.

    Last chance, Gelion. The update is already written, but I have to go somewhere til about 10 EST. Not like it'll kill your character if you don't post orders, I'll just have him do some random chore.

    EDIT: Yes, always room to join, Fulton. All of the new characters already have stats, but have not migrated yet.

    EDIT2:Fulton: What's the baby's name? Boy/girl? For game purposes, it's age will be 0 at the date you arrive.

    2nd Lime - 811 DC - Update Two

    The week starts off with Wilhelm combing his moustache furiously, and gaining a few inches of moustache.

    He and Nailadar start mining extensions to the cave system, herein called the Firestout-Fvedder Cave System (FFCS), and successfully dig a small hispital and two multipurpose rooms, one claimed by Wilhelm himself and another by Northen, who had said originally that he wanted one.

    Nailadar fails to create his mine cart, as he doesn't have the appropriate materials.

    No ores suitable for anything were found in the cave, though a few large rocks

    Gelion (NPC) borrows one of the communal axes, and begins chopping wood for the group, successfully bringing in 6 alder logs by the end of the week.

    The stone mined from the FFCS extensions is used to create several small stone mechanisms by Mcflabbergast. Alexis Gray takes advantage of this, and builds several small Stone Fall Traps (SFTs) and places them near or around the perimeter of the camp area, where she has claimed her own secretive lair. A small collection of bones and animal skulls have appeared there, creeping many of the dwarves out.

    Northen spends most of his time carrying rocks and bones around for various dwarves, and flattens himself out a nice little field north of the cave mouth. Wolf Field, this place is called.

    Doctor McDoctorstein, overjoyed at her request being fulfilled, celebratorily beats several defenseless hedgehogs to death with her Doctoring Cane, as the others have deemed it.

    Ed builds an archery range far above the cave system, where he and countless others will practice their amazing archery skills.


    ----

    A leader is not yet elected by the dwarves, as the subject seems to have been dropped.


    The entire group, (save for Northen and Wilhelm, whom have their own rooms) sleep in the comfort of the large, public, cold main room of the cave. They all sleep on the hard, cold, rock floor, however.

    ----

    40 food is consumed (40 plump helmets)
    8 alcohol is consumed (8 ale)

    ----

    Rumors of goblin raiders in the northwest circulate. A dwarf settlement was attacked, and their alcohol reserves almost stolen, before the attackers were driven off. It is estimated that they will arrive here by the 4th Lime, in two weeks.

    Are you limiting the number of players? I see the term "reserve" banded around...

    Northen Thinks
    Northen Wants beer. Beer is good - beer can be carried around, beer can be used to get rid of thirst, carrying beer makes money, making beer makes seeds. Northen Wants a still

    Northen has room, but has no bed. Northen Wants a carpentry Shop, so he could have a bed.

    Northen has a room, but it is not defended. Northen Wants Traps.

    Northen thinks that having a field is good - field can produce food, cloth and even beer. But to do that - field needs workers.

    Northen Orders

    1. Attempt to make a carpentry shop
    2. Work on fields

    Northen Diplo

    To: Alexis Gray

    Northen likes traps. Northen Likes traps killing enemies. Northen likes carrying stuff of dead enemies. Northen thinks more traps is needed. Northen Likes traps.

    -------------------


    NORTHEN CARES, NORTHEN DOES NOT WANT HIS LIFE TO BE ENDED. NORTHEN THINK HIS LIFE WELL WRITTEN. NORTHEN THANKS THE WRITER. NORTHEN THINKS HE HAS HAD ONE TOO MANY BEERS AND IS TALKING TO HIMSELF. NORTHEN FEELS URGE TO ENGRAVE SOMETHING.

    Northen attempts to polish and engrave a floor tile. This is a poor quality engraving. There are many dwarves engraved on this floor tile. There is a godly creature engraved on this tile. Dwarves are working. Dwarves are looking up. Godly creature is smiling. This picture represents founding of [InsertFortNameHere] on 1st of the Lime, in the year [insert Year Here] by 8 dwarves. There is a cheese hidden on this picture.

    @Abaddon: Nope, number of players is not limited. Have you ever played Dwarf Fortress? Those in "Reserve" will arrive as immigrants come Immigrant time, or as I see fit before that.

    @Rp: You didn't mention breeding cats in your orders.

    @Omega: Nope, no snake yet. Snakes is rare, man.

    @Northen: I'm not in charge of naming things, but the year is 811 DC (Dwarf Calendar). Engraving things is going to be hard to mark on the map, whoo! EDIT: What about the fields need work? Planting your mushrooms? (No plump helmet spawns yet)

    Wilhelm Fvedder's Orders
    Action 1 - (Major) - Begin the digging of a mineshaft so we can get more materials to build stuff.

    Action 2 - (Minor) - Attempt to finish carving out my cave-home. Make it less hut-like and more proper for a discerning Dwarf.

    "Well Northern" said Alexis, "I would of course set some traps for you, if you assist me in my little project, you see I need someone to excavate an underground section connected to the main cave/tunnel from my lair, if you do that, then I will set those traps. Oh and before I take you to my lair I need you to wear a blindfold."
