This is where me and Chunky shall be posting our updates on the fortress called Wire of Immortals (chosen automatically by the game. I doubt these fuckers will be very immortal.) He doesn't have to be as literature-ey as I am, but Im having some fun with this.

Anyways, here is update number 1.


Entry Number 1:

What a day. I don't know what your opinion of a wake-up call is, but I can tell you that it sure isn't being woken up by the equivilent of a blubbering twelve year old, telling you that our caravan was wrecked. Something must have spooked the horses during the night, and there's not a goddamn trace of them anywhere. Even worse, the wheels of our wagon are nowhere to be seen.
So we have supplies of all kinds, right? Metric fuckloads of food, at least eight cats, bags, axes, an anvil, pickaxes and buttfuck whatever. Take your pick.

I guess I was the only one who figured out the mystery of how we'd survive. We had the skilled individuals with us, and more than enough supplies to last us for a while. When I suggested that we set up a home for ourselves here, the others started cheering for me like I was some sort of god for coming up with that idea. And I thought I was bashing them over the head with Mount Obvious As Shit.
They were so pleased, that they decided that I'd better be the leader here and guide them all to riches and safety. Yep. Me. Because I was the only one who wasn't freaking out of my damned mind when we found out that the horses were gone.

Whatever. I'd prefer a slow death of starvation to being an expedition leader, but then there's the other five men with me to think about. I might as well do it.
So I told them to make the bare bones of our new home. We got some room for building supplies made, and ring around it where our workshops will go. The kitchen and our food in general will be downstairs, and yet another floor down will be our beds. Should be safe enough.

Entry 2:

Things were actually going okay, I guess. We had food, workshops, and even the beginnings of a mine all set up. Six of us ran every workshop. Did we need any fucking help? Not one bit.

But four migrants have arrived, and suddenly we had four more mouths to feed. Damn it. It's not like I'd turn them away and leave 'em to starve in the middle of nowhere.
So we made some more beds:

Entry 3:
I guess that some of these migrants aren't half bad, I guess. One of them did more thinking than most of the absolute idiots around here (I'll elaborate on this later), and suggested that I set up some traps. He even started making so huge wooden corkscrews in the front. I mean, if these migrants managed to find us, I'm pretty damned sure that goblins will learn about us as well, sooner or later.
Anyways, back to the topic of idiots. For some reason, pieces of walls were starting to fall down here and there, for no apparent reason. They'd only happen around the entrances of rooms, and it becomes impossible to mine the things away. Anyways, one of my miners got stuck in a room, pickaxe in his fucking hand, and I didnt even notice him until he was half starved to death. I had to tell him to dig himself out with his own damned pickaxe, and he thanked me like the fearless leader I apparently was.

In other news, we've also struck gold. A lot of it.
Too bad some idiot forgot to give us a fucking anvil. We can't even do anything with this.

Entry 4:

Well, fuck me with a rake. A cave crocodile appeared out of nowhere, and tore apart one of our stonecrafters. He walked over every last one of our traps to get to him.
At least he was only a migrant. Heh heh heh.

Entry 5:
Next in line for being killed out of the damned blue was our mason. A troglodyte smashed his brain apart. To deal with him, I basically formed every surviving member of the fortress into a military, and they all swarmed the fucker. Serves him right.

Entry 6:
Three more immigrants. I guess they'll make up for the two folks we lost. And one of them is a metal crafter. Fuck yeah.

Entry 7:
And just as the winter began, we recieved our first caravan! I've loaded up all of our goods, but it's up to the next guy who runs this godforsaken place to do the trading. I'll remind him here that we have no anvil, and need some weapons.
Or even better, a fucking anvil.
Strike the fucking earth, Chunky. Strike the fucking earth.
More to come. B-)

My half of a year is done. There was no way for me to know if I'd survive a year or not, so I'll just give my part to you now.
The update is all completed, but I got lazy and no changes were really big enough to capture with a screenshot. Besides me putting a depot in front of the fortress.

Here's the link to the DF save, Chunky: http://www.mediafire.com/?u85epipk26laa7b
