Alright, I don't think we've ever actually been through one of these.
SO LES DO EET!What the hell is this, Bood you crazy bastard?
If you don't know what a succession game is, it's to play a collective fortress, in the game Dwarf Fortress
. Every player takes the fortress for a year, posts what happened (usually from the point of view of one of the dwarves) and the next one takes it. The famous example is the epic saga of Boatmurdered
Also if you are new to DF, a couple of useful links:Vijya Tutorials
Now get out there men, and give me the best damn fortress
you can.The Rules, Dammit
One year = one turn, from spring of one year to spring of the next. Once you see the cheery green "Spring has arrived!" text, save it, zip it, and get it to the next player. [...] Feel free to break your turn up into a bunch of posts, but let's try and keep it moving along.
Once it's your turn, you get a week from the time that the link is posted to take your turn. If you start but can't finish, your successor has the option to pick up where you left off and play out the rest of your turn and their. If you don't start, then the old savegame just goes to the next player. [...]
- At the end of your turn, you send the saves to the
lucky person next in line AND
me. The folder should be in .rar compression and named as /[TURN NUMBER][YOUR NAME][NAME OF FORTRESS]
-I will require a post when you are halfway through to report what has happened and at the end of your turn, in the viewpoint of your choice. Sometime back
Melly did a pretty neat coverage of a fortress he ran, if you need some inspiration.

If some brave soul wished to start this thing off, by all means go ahead. If not, I will create a world based on the wishes of the people (you.)
That is all.OLDE GODS
