After my failed attempt to start to a dwarf fortress let’s play, I decided to try again. Same idea applies. I wanted to share my fortresse’s story with you guys, receive feedback and suggestions for what to do etc.
And so we begin.
I have decided this time to show you the world that was generated, ‘The Age Myth’. This world is currently 250 years old. So the picture is too big to upload directly to MG so here is an imgur link.
I thought it would be cool to try a new fortress that came from the same dwarven civilization as last game, Etur Orshet, “The Boulder of Cremating”. Before we start I wanted to see how our civilization started.
The Boulder of Cremating where a dwarven civilization of the eternal universe, they existed when the world started. The first queen was Kivish LÏdmafol, "Kivish Tightness Chambers. (1-53
She only lived to be about 53 years old, killed by the goblin usbu Steelchasms.
Although her rain was only 53 years she accomplished quite a lot. Under her leadership, our glorious civilization founded
- Year 1 -: Throwerhandles
- Year 1 -: Drinkcaves
- Year 2 -: Scalelabor
- Year 3 -: Cavevaults
- Year 17 -: Wirepartner
- Year 25 -: Townkeeper (this is where the killer of the queen was eventually killed)
- Year 26 -: Lashsmiths
- Year 42 -: Slysyrups
- Year 43 -: Siegeboulder
- Year 44 -: Lashringed
- Year 51 -: Lancerdrank
- Year 52 -: Castledivine
The queen died in the defence of Lashringed against The Unspeakable Plagues.
The next leader after the queen was her fifth eldest daughter Solon Equalcities (31-54), she died in the same year to the same faction as her predecessor, The Unspeakable Plagues.
Sadly, her body was mutilated and used as part of a gruesome structure near the fortress Townkeepers where she died defending the fortress.
Before I go on to the next queen, I would like to cover the leader of The Unspeakable Plagues, Quazi Monkeymenaced (?-158). The dude was around since before the universe started. I will just post his accomplishments before the world existed.
Although despite all of his epic accomplishments, the dude died to an elephant.
The next queen was Monom Manorthrone (43-212) had a rather boring reign. She became the queen in the year 55 at the ripe old age of 12. Her father, Domas Ostbomrek “Domas Foldedwhip”, was the eldest son of the first queen Kivish. He died at Lashringed with his mother. Unlike his mother, however, he was a part of that wonderful dwarf sculpture. At least he died fighting. He took down four goblins with him.
Her young age did nothing to deter the elves from attacking Lashingrad.
Thankfully though a peace treaty was arranged, and the fighting stopped. The first 15 or so years of her reign was littered with competitions, recitals, processions and not much else. However she finally oversaw the building of some new fortresses.
- Year 69 Threetomes
The elves attempted another attack in the year of 69.
Which failed and they tucked their tails between their legs and signed the treaty.

OK ENOUGH you get the idea, I am skipping ahead till something more fun pops up. Yah Illahi this queen is dull. I am sure the rest of the dwarves where happy that their third queen was not being slaughtered and mutilated along with the rest of their kin, but it makes for dull storytelling.
This story as been pretty popular at the Inkley festival every, bloody, year since 186.
Anyways the dull queen dies of old age in the Year 212, at the ripe old age of 169. She never got married and had no heirs. With no clear line of succession the dwarves chose not to elect a new queen and just kinda chilled.
In the year 251, the faction The Disloyalty of Castles attacked and took over the fortress Tradednoble. They defected from their faction and started a new civilization called The Dimpled Demon.
In the Year 252 the Disloyalty of Castles attacked the fortress Pickbrushes. Four times their forces attacked, and three times they where rebuffed.
Meanwhile The Deep Seduction attacked Joywheels twice, however failed to take over our fortress. After their failures The Cruelty of Channels attacked and took over Pickbrushes and established a new government called The Single Curse.
And this is where we come in.
So guys, I am thinking of building a fortress near where the ones that where taken over our. The story could be that with the loss of our stronghold in that area, our expedition set out to attempt to re control the territory (the game still has not added the ability to launch offensive attacks against other factions yet. Your faction can launch attacks, but we cannot. We can however, reclaim an old fortress.
So what do you guys think?
Here is a legend of the relevant factions.
The Boulder of Cremation (Us) -:
The Sweetness of Riders (The eleves that attacked us) -:
The Unspeakable Plague (The guys who killed our first two queens) -:
These are fortresses -:
P.S. I should add that since there is not king or queen, that means our civilization is dyeing and that one of the dwarves in our new fortress will become the king or queen, essentially we are this civilizations last hope. In theory, if I succeed at this fortress, then retire it and start another and another etc, we can grow this civilization back to it’s former glory.
