    It didn't... In fact it was really really prosperous becasue we had so much native gold we could buy anything. I built a castle out of white marble. 3 stories where marble and the fourth was gold. It was a very good city. My secind city died though. everyone died of thirst because of winter freezing up all of the lakes. My third died also. Everyone was poisoned by my expedition leader. He went crazy and commited suiced inside of my aquaduct so his rotting corpse poisoned my people.

    ahh... well my first died when for some odd reason a bit after i starte dmy expidition leader went insane and destroyed not only the farms but the wall keeping out goblins...

    2nd: My friend told me the purple areas when embarking were best for newbies.HE IS A DIRTY LIAR.

    3rd died of flooding when i forgot the ogres can break both walls and floodgates... yeah... M

    4th died when i discovered what was on the deep most floor...

    5th died when i accidentally sent my entire population to the Tower of Death burrows instead of the safe home burrows...

    6th fortress died from a Hugh Amber headless blob with wings that shot poisonous gas.(Got it all to read.. but it never died. idk)

    7th died because i was playing around with the rar files and tryed to make cats shoot fireballs at bad guys... they just rapidly shot fireballs...

    8th was when i discovered that apperently i takes more than one drunked dorf to move a captured dragon to an elven trade Caravan

    9th was when i learned that i cannot handle a Vile force of darkness and an elven raiding party AT THE SAME TIME.

    10th pluming accident with magma forges.... yeah

    11th was funny... 2 forgotten beasts at the same time.. one shot fire and flew while the other one hag like 8 arms and shot poisonous gas that permanently blinded any dorf caught in it.. i killed the fire one but the poisonious gas one got to my dinning hall before i noticed it... like my entire fortress got gassed befor the thing dien... my newly blinded dwarfs slowly died off... was sad.

    12th My butcher carved up a fire imp. Then they dragged its STILL BURNING FAT to the food stockpile. This ignited ALL of my booze. Plenty of dorfs caught on fire and died, and with no booze to console them the rest tantrum spiraled very quickly...

    13th: i learned that angry cave crocodiles can crawl up through the hospital well...

    14th My attempt to Remedy my Cat-splosion Made my Dorfs go Fucking INSANE.

    15th Aquifers, Aquifers everywhere

    Dear Mrs. Urist,

    We are terribly sorry for your loss. It would seem that, apon entering his new quarters, your husband slipped and hit a lever designed to make the floor collapse. We are unsure as to why this lever was even hooked up. However, the Sheriff will be by in a few minutes to discuss the table you threw at Solon and her infant child, which killed said child and put Solon in the hospital.

    Signed,

    Slightly angered mysterious force that controls everything except dwarf rage.

    Dear UristChiefMedicalDwarf,

    I had no idea you were a skilled craftsdwarf until you stopped fishing out of the medical well to be possessed. I have bones, bars of bronze, WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT?! SHELLS? WHAT THE FUCK ARE SHELLS? IF YOU GO INSANE, I'M MOBILIZING THE MILITARY, I SWEAR TO ARMOK! And since you're our doctor, nobody will be there to heal you.

    Sincerely,
    UristMcExpeditionLeader

    Dear Engraver Urist,



    These Engravings are unacceptable. I know I asked you to depict the history of our civilization and Fortress rather than koala demons, but I don't like being reminded of my failures as your leader when I walk down the halls of our Fortress. While Ogres smashing Dwarves is the best summary of our Fortresses history, you could focus on the positive aspects instead to help improve morale.

    So either stop making these appalling images or I will be forced to relieve you of your duties. This may involve an unfortunate accident involving the Ogres you seem to love so much.

    From Expedition Leader.

    Dear King Roder,

    It has come to my attention that you have recently lost your son and wife due to horrific events involving the water crisis. I understand that ruling a kingdom can be hard, and that you must have been quite frustrated at the account of three attempted mutinies do to lack of water during the winter months. The council and I agree that it is not your fault the wells have dried up during the only time of year we cannot harvest water from the lakes just outside the city entrance, however we do ask that you stop covetting your wife and son's mutilated bodies so taht they may be buried properly and will not cause an infection or outbreak of disease in the city. We appreciate the time you have taken to read this letter.

    Signed,
    Nobleman Keft

    Dear King Roder

    We regret to inform you that, although the winter months are over, relations with the local populace continue to decline. We have not yet pinpointed the exact reason for this generally low morale, but we are begining to think that we have found a source. As such, in order to improve the state of teh people, we would be delited if you would please remove your wife's corpse from the aquaduct systems as it is poisoning the other people of Dribblsnup. We understand you are frustrated by the events that took you wife's life from us all, however we do not believe that is an adequate reason to intentionally spread disease through the only water supply available since the well incident. We would also be very happy if you would please stop locking non-essential personel in the forging room then closing the vents.

    Sincerely,
    Nobleman Fesst (the succeeding nobleman after the previous was bludgened to death by the king)

    Dear Mr. Nasalt

    I am highly pleased with the work you've done for our society. The carved marble walls of the castle look fantastic. I only hope that i am the first to officially give you thanks for carving in the accomplishments of our fair nation into the work of the castle walls that you yourself mined and crafted, such as teh defeating of the goblin horde as they attempted to scale our walls, or even the great trade deal with the elves that sustained us for an entire 3 winters without a single loss of life. It is rare to see such great work done now adays. Now i must bring about the unfortunate news regarding your wife. I have begun to notice an increase in her visits to the local apothecary and this has troubled me as the extracted flower pollen supplies have been running dry much quicker than they should be. I have reason to believe that your wife is not only getting illegal quantities of addictive substances, but is sleeping with the doctor to do so. Anywya, keep up the amazing work that you've been doing with the architecture.

    Signed,
    Nobleman Fesst

    Yeah Rockem, I played even before Loki did. But he took it way farther.

    My first city was going along the tutorial I found. By the time I had some noble rooms, a set of rooms for my dwarves, large storage levels, and a very ornate dining hall, it fell into chaos. My dwarves (between 20 and 40 of them) did nothing but attempt and fail to party, and only less than a handful would follow my commands (so pretty much every automatic haul command was ignored). Eventually the intense amount of trash left everywhere turned into a fuckball of miasma, causing everyone to run screaming out of the fort. The fortress never recovered...

    Every other one past that was terrible. Either they were wiped out or just couldn't find stone, or I couldn't remember what save it was.

    I'd love to have incentive to play though. What version are you using, Rockem?

    Im useing 31.25 with the Phoebus Graphic Set

    I think this tile set is what actually makes the game playable... i find things really difficult without it..

    I dunno, the regular ASCII is kind of cute (the dwarves are little happy faces) but you are right. Is there a place I can get it? (I have no damn idea which version mine is at all, but I'd like to be using the same version as someone else in the case that we trade forts).

    Actually, I don't know if I like those graphics. Would I be able to use a different one, and still be compatible?
