Dwarf Fortress

Sign in to follow this

I used to play Dwarf Fortress back before the Z axis was added and I recently got back into it after getting my first Angband victory. I got to tell you, it is the most addicting game I have ever played. Once you get over the sort of steep learning curve, it is serious fun.

If you don't know what it is: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/ or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwarf_Fortress

My only real complaint with the game is that the code can bring your frame rate to a crawl once you get a large population.

Any other players out there? Can I get a sweet 3x3 embark off of you?

Great game; I'm not terribly good at it, unfortunately. Are you playing on the most recent incarnation of it? I had a weird glitch where a titan attacked, but couldn't get in, so a band of goblin crossbowmen killed it instead.

I'm still using 40d, I tried the 31.08 but it was slow at the menu so I stuck with the oldie. I got lagged to death recently by a dragon that lit my Heavily Wooded embark on fire.

It's usually a race between the goblins and the fps for who will kill my fort first.

Rhesuses used to bug me until I put a point or two of Axedwarf into my Woodcutter. It's fun watching them fly after s/he enters a Martial Trance. Carp, on the other hand, scare me to death.
