I almost blew sprite over my screen when I saw what Nil Kast meant. I do hope these fellows survive.  :D Dont feel bad about the abandoned fortresses, the game is meant to be challenging after all.

It looks like a canyon I think. Blue line is the river, green and gray area is the canyon floor, and the black areas are solid rock.

I think. :-\

Photobucket also causes a loss in image data, It might be better to just crop the area you want us too see. :D

I agree with Slarti, that looks like a pretty defensible area to me. Just don't dig it out so that it becomes too big to defend, start the digging at the actual back and go inwards.

im tired of doing the basic beggining over and over :P...anyway i have to make sure we dont die so fast so i have to give you guys a little les freemdom in the beginning


Celdur diary

Granite 6th

i chose the location close to the river since its well protected from any outsiders
we couldnt get down the mountain with all these goods so our miners dug a way down


its pretty dark inside, it gives me the chills.

Granite 10th

our miners dug out the begining of the living quaters
to my suprize most of the stone is blue
Slarti said that the blue rock is microlite
he said that its worthless but at least it looks pretty



Granite 29th

me and sam made a farm plot outside and then i went looking for some things to plan
i found some berries and im sure they are eatable so i will plant those.

we finaly finished the bedrooms!
im sick of sleeping on the floor so im glad its finaly done

Hematite 2nd

we finaly finished the living quaters
the next step, acording to neo, is to tap the water of the river
and to make an underground water suply so that we have something to drink in winter
he also said that with this water we could make an underground farm
i like that idea since we are running out of plump helmet




ok thats it for now
its allot more fun doing it diary style...i hope you guys like to read it too
the underground water suply has to be done...so i will not add it to the poll

Food, storage, workshops, defense -- seems to the the right order.  Don't forget to make a trading post.

Microlite.  Interesting.

Remember, this is a slightly radioactive mineral and should be stored away from other minerals that are subject to damage from radioactivity and of course human exposure should be limited!
Glad we're not humans and the that game can't possibly be that detailed.   ;D

Yes, just go ahead and do things that HAVE to be done. 

Everything on the very bottom, just go ahead and do those. 
You can ask us what we would prefer to eat, but always make sure we have something.

Our votes should be for interesting and crazy things like making a temple that looks like the GamingSteve's head.

Food and somewhere to keep it. Food, Water and Shelter are primary concerns. After that Safety. In fact we can pretty much just follow Maslow pyramid to glory :P

alright here we go again...


Celdur`s diary

Hematite 10th

the miners began working on the water storage
its amazing how fast they work



we have found our first ore! acording to slarti its galena
he said that you can melt it into lead and that there is a small chance of it containing silver
he also told me that by finding this there is a large chance of finding gold in the area
i have no idea how he knows this but at least he knows what he is doing



Hematite 20th

there is something wrong with this area
the plants wont grow up here, i have no idea what is causing it
we better find the cause soon. or make the underground farm

Malachite 5th

Neoadapt finished construction on a trade depot
they said that traders would come in fall so they could come any time soon now



Malachite 30th

still no solution to the farm problem
the water storage is almost done and i cant make any food
where are those damn traders?

limestone 3th

finaly the traders arived! its nearly winter already
i bought some plump helmet, it should be enough to get through the winter



neoadapt had nearly completed the floodgates nececary to manage the water flow
i wish the traders had chain or rope since we cant build a well without it

limestone 20th

some imegrants arived. great, more mouths to feed
the winter is going to be rough
at least they know how to fish





yeah can anyone explain why the hell my farm plot aint working? i know how it works so thats not the problem...they just refuse to plant anything...its driving me mad

next turn i will make a underground farm...

anyway here is a list of the immigrants:
farmerx2
fisher
jeweler/miner
metalsmith
animal trainer/fisher
soldier/peasant

choose any if you like to join

EDIT: daxx is the soldier :D he has a crossbow
        Henqix is the metalsmith
        werechicken is the jeweler who is now mason and miner
        cobra is a animal trainer/fisher

the other jobs are still open :D
