Spoiler :
Let's play Dwarf Fortress! I was inspired after reading Gemclod. If you want to be a dwarf, sign up in this thread by posting the following details:

Name: Your name on the forums and also the name that will be assigned to your dwarf when it arrives.
Immigration Preference: By default your character will arrive as soon as possible, in the form of an immigrant or a newborn. If you only want to be an adult immigrant (or if you only want to be a baby for some reason) let me know so I can assign your name to an appropriate dwarf.
Overseer Preference: I would like to pass ownership of the fortress from dwarf to dwarf every year if possible, so I'm hoping we have one or two people willing to be overseers. If you'd rather just write journal entries for participant dwarves, that's great too!

Skill Preferences: If you're one of the first six to sign up and you want your dwarf to be skilled in one or more areas, tell me here. If you're not one of our starting group of settlers, your skills will be random.
Suggested Equipment: If you have any recommendations for items to bring along, let me know here. This will be limited by what we can afford at embarkation.

I'd rather the Playful Razors, it sounds like a cocktail of cocky deities that's liable to explode in our faces somewhere down the track.

Immigration preference: Female adult immigrant
Overseer preference: Iiiiii'll think about it.

Skill preferences: Animal Trainer, Marksdwarf, Trapper, Hunting, Wrestling
Suggested equipment: A breeding pair of war dogs? Or peregrine falcons!

I actually prefer the Standards of Neutrality since they have a ton of gods, many of whom sound absolutely hilarious, but I agree that Razors are still pretty good. Bodice of voices is probably third place? Anyways:

Name: Palamedes (any surname is alright as long as it is suitably baffling)
Immigration Preference: Male Adult
Overseer Preference: Only if I really have to.
Skill Preferences: Broker or Doctor skills, Crossbowman
Suggested Equipment: If I thought that far ahead I wouldn't have joined this miserable venture.

Superior Silver

Name: Denizen "tripps" Shipper

Skill Preferences: Swimming, Fish Cleaning, Woodcrafting.
Suggested Equipment: Bag of cheese. Bag of sand. Don't really care actually.

Will be happy with Silvers or Razors. Seriously, Razors may sound cool and all, but Granitebronze the cobalt silver has FOUR different metals in his name.

Narm: Leafsword (maybe split that for the name...)
Immigration Preference: Male Adult
Overseer Preference: I tried dorf fortress by myself once. I couldn't figure out the controls. It didn't end well.
Skill Preferences: Axe and shield stuff, or a mason if we don't have one of those.
Suggested equipment: Stuff suitable for either of those roles, IDEK.

As a side note, sex and surname are beyond my control (at least for the starting dwarves). We're breaking down boundaries, people!

Right, the two changeable options are nickname and job title. Tripps is still a good nickname.

I vote for playful razors because best name

Name: TickTockTickTock, dwarf nickname "some donkus"
Immigration Preference: Adult
Overseer Preference: I would totally do it. I can't run the new military at all, but I am very skilled at defenses, so the person after me might possibly get a fort that is under siege with all the doors locked.

Suggested Equipment: I'll be mad if there isn't at least one breeding pair of dogs, one breeding pair of meat cats, and two picks. Also barrels suck so you should do the exploit where you buy 1 each of 30 different kinds of meat to get 30 barrels.

The Playful Razors are our Nation, a mighty dwarven civilization from the south-west continent. Hailing from the grand mountainhall of Lashedwebs in the mountain range known as the Walls of Elevation, our territory is encroached on all sides by the tall ones.

[Image: ThePlayfulRazors_zps599cabbf.png]

East of Lashedwebs are the Elven forest retreats of the Lion of Assembling, our perennial enemies. Encircling our mountains and encompassing the rest of the peninsula are "friendly" human cities inhibiting our expansion. Their merchants ply their wares at our gates, spreading rumors of rich lands to the north, but warning that these lands are inhabited by a warlike race of green-skinned creatures... foul monsters that delight in torture and chaos, more savage even then the bloodthirsty elves we know, and more advanced in the ways of warfare.

We have watched for years as the humans villages around us grow fat and wealthy with trade and travel, while our mountainhalls languish in obscurity, our caravans traveling no farther than the nearby swamps and forest retreats to collect tribute from our primal elven neighbors.

The year is 251.

Her majesty the queen of the Playful Razors has authorized a secret expedition of seven dwarves who will travel to the far north. There we will seek the riches that have been so long denied us, and test the mettle of the infamous "goblin" warriors. She dubbed our mission Kosoth Stettad, the Palace of Taxes.

Below is our roster of heroes:

The lady Masterblade, a worker of stone. She has been tense and jittery for this entire journey, but I think that might be because of all the mosquitos.
Spoiler :
[Image: Masterblade_zps563ef5ea.png]

There's Tripps, purportedly a woodworker of some skill.
Spoiler :
[Image: Tripps_zps35bf2ad0.png]

Our resident animal expert, the ranger Schazer. Still spry at eighty-five, I think it has something to do with all those stretches she does in the middle of a conversation.
Spoiler :
[Image: Schazer_zps089b8e17.png]

Purple Walrus, an expert at procuring and cutting gems from the bowels of the earth. She's friendly and hates brown recluse spiders nearly as much as I do.
Spoiler :
[Image: PurpleWalrus_zpsa00cfdba.png]

The very matter-of-fact Doctor Palamedes.
Spoiler :
[Image: Palamedes_zps71ef0968.png]

The mason Leafsword assures me that if we are attacked by wild beasts, or those goobers or gobbers or whatever they're called, he can fight them off with his swordsdwarfship. He has a copper sword, so he must be telling the truth.
Spoiler :
[Image: Leafsword_zpse8ba11db.png]

And of course there is myself, Thriggle. I will see to it that this expedition achieves glory worthy of Rakust's attention.
