[LP] Tales of Glittersprayed - in FoE-modded Dwarf Fortress

Postby Waak » Wed Jan 09, 2013 3:48 pm

Tales of Glittersprayed, The Stable settlement
or how ponies named after community members fare in the Wastes, Part I

INTRO

I still can't grasp why in Tartarus they decided to call this place Glittersprayed of all names.

It's like the ponies in power of The Goldenrod Weather - a wasteland town build in and around a Stable, and frankly, our "home" - decided to pull a last prank over us and give the most random name for a settlement they could get by smashing the keys of a terminal. Or maybe it's because they couldn't agree on any more sensible name. And personally I think it's a little bit from both columns. Lucky - to them - that I can direct my dissatisfaction to something much more productive than arguing with a bunch of "nobles".

This site, where we were "assigned" to build a settlement to, I quote, "project the power of The Goldenrod Weather and show the Wastes some true civilization". Like a few critters fancy our way of living - not to mention the Steel Rangers, of which we have heard rumours of residing along mountain ranges. And we're along one - great. That superior firepower is the last thing I need knocking on the door.

Bah, I'm rambling. The site - Glittersprayed, it was named, is mostly flat ground and, like most of the wastes, littered with pre-war techology. The slowly rising ridge to the East, towards the mountains, provides an excellent place to burrow into the ground and try to mimic - no, excel - the success of The Goldenrod Weather. With a stream flowing off to the west from our location, we could supply the settlement and its citizens - and cattle - with fresh water through most of the year. Now we just have to strike the earth and build ourselves a new home.

My name is Candy Vipertomb - friends call me Waak - and this is the story of The Lacy Stockade's (another name I can't grasp on) attempt at besting the Wasteland.

Hello hello, and let me explain this topic a bit.

For starters, I'm running a game on Fallout: Equestria mod for Dwarf Fortress where a bunch of ponies - Stable Dwellers, at that - try to build a shelter and scavenge pre-war technology amongst the environmental hazards, raiders and Steel Rangers. In this run I'll attempt to do so with community-named ponies at the helm - to either (unlikely) prosperity or (likely) doom.

Rules, Applying and Related
Spoiler: show
Applying: If you want your name to be part of this "playthrough", it's simple - just give the name and I'll do the rest.
You can, if you so desire, to request a specific gender, race and profession of your liking - no restrictions on the direction of labour.

When it comes to the skills your pony of desires knows, make sure they don't conflict - a mining doctor-farmer who works as a soldier full-time is not feasible, but a cheesemaking and cooking fisherpony works.

As showed, this may have story bits involved, so your character's personality would help in the process but is not mandatory to give. If you're allright with whatever personality your pony posesses, so be it.

Note 1: Do not grow attached to your / other's characters. This is Dwarf Fortress, and as such someone WILL die sooner or later. It's only a matter of time. And there will be no savescumming so characters can/will die and the Stable can end abruptly.

Note 2: You can apply as many times as you like, but you may only have one character at any given time and you cannot give same name twice to two ponies - that is, if "Waak" dies, there can't be another "Waak" after that, but something completely different in place.

Embark Area

Sorry, forgot to take a screenie of the equipment, but we have bighorners and brahmin for cattle, chickens for their eggs, two cats (both male!) for rodent hunting, four security turrets and two ProtectaPonies for early unwanted quests.

Down we go, under the ground!

This is going to become the pony version of Boatmurdered, isn't it?

The difference between the two respective forts is that Boatmurdered was a rotational fortress - the save changed hands - but Glittersprayed is going to stay on my computer, for the time being.

I've played half a year - and blood has already been spilled, and new ponies joined. I'll update later.

Yeah, I know Boatmurdered was a succession game. I was referring more to the crazy, horrible, crazy things that befell the fort.

Then again, it wouldn't be Dorf Fortress without that. :P
