    I've had a brewing job constantly running for my year. I'd guess that it was interrupted by a zombie at some point and I forgot to reactivate it. Or they were drinking it before it was stockpiled.

    Next player should maybe set up a second brewery, up our production.

    i could do a year I've been meaning to play for a while and this is a good excuse - though updates would be slow since i can only play for an hour or so a day except on weekends due to school and having to share this computer

    Shouldn't be a problem, I can't see a round taking more than seven hours.

    Mine took almost ten hours (EDIT: Most of my first log was written while I looked around with the game paused and took stock of the situation, so really it was closer to nine) but then again my computer, if it were a person, would be a triple amputee. I was getting around 20 FPS, and that's after turning off weather and temperature and shutting down every program I wasn't using.

    You don't necessarily have to complete your year, just finish as much as you can.

    By the way did you flip temperature back on, or is that independent of save?

    That's independent of the save.

    Anyway, since Zargodia is the only player available who hasn't had a year yet, he's up.

    Farms are under the ice. Should be F2 to zoom to them I think.
    Claspedchurches: This is a mudstone dwarven fortress. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It is encrusted with bauxite, studded with ice, decorated with gold, and adorned with hanging rings of magma. This fortress menaces with spikes of steel, iron, bronze, and silver. On the fortress is an image of an image of cheese in pitchblende.

    On the fortress is an image of a megaweapon in gold, silver, jet, obsidian and adamantine. The goblins are burning.

    Those bridges near the main hall are for luring zombies up from the caverns, then smashing them.

    The series of levers on the left wall of the main hall control the front's bridges.

    great timing because a minotaur is in the fort and i want to kill it before it gets to where things are

    edit:so if somthing dies i just need to dump it and it will be sent to the caverns right?

    Yeah, though if you get an interrupt message pull the bottommost left-side lever twice. If the dwarves get scared by the cave zombies, that'll dump the bridge contents.

    Alternatively, put the corpse under a bridge and smash it. Personally I think that's a bit of an exploit, but many would recommend it.

    the military has started training now to make some shields and armor for them!

    OH LA DI DA the mayor wants some greaves does he well TOO BAD we need armor for
    the military first

    Ral and me had our first sparring session and may there be many more!
    Ral was worried at first about my spinal injury but its no problem

    I just realized that we don't have an armorer so I recruited Luzahn
    to the task

    we are officially out of brewable plants but we have plenty of drinks
    so it should be fine for now

    neat a minotaur now just great hope he takes some of the undead with him
    well the shields are on hold for awhile because we need more adamantine

    Well, it's dead. Rollback is in order, unless we want to be sporting and start from scratch?

    EDIT: By the way, have you guys seen the development post with trees? They're becoming multitile things. With fruit!

    Fruit trees are indeed exciting.

    I say we start a new fort, preferable one where our livestock won't rise up to strangle the life from us. Near a goblin fort or necromancer tower is fine though.

    But, but... where's the Fun in that?!

    To be honest, I kind of like the idea of a fort constantly being balanced on the razor's edge of disaster, an all consuming tantrum spiral on one side and a zombie apocalypse on the other.

    Yeah, seconded. Invading stealth neromancers and undead armies should provide a lot of challenge, without the messiness of a constant zombie plague.

    ya all that it took was 1 donkey dieing in the dining hall to start it all. personally i think new fort might be a bit more manageable and easier to get off the ground

    Besides, we lost. Can't go resurrecting forts, otherwise it never ends. Besides, having a succession world sounds interesting.

    Hmm... Well, if Zargodia would upload his save from after the fort has fallen we can use that world again and see if there's a suitable non-haunted area near a necromancer's tower.

    perhaps a region bordering an evil biome would suffice. It may provide a somewhat safer area while still giving you your evil weather, undead, etc...

    Eh, I've found towers to be more fun. With partial evil biomes, you end up just building everything outside of it and avoiding the nastiness. A lot of evil biomes end up without undead too. The towers provide a good threat level without being a constant annoyance.

    Okay. I'll look around and see if I can locate some less hostile (but hopefully still Fun-filled) spots.
