RE: Aluudon [DF]
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.

Name: Schazer (surname Odvoyager if we're of the Playful Razors, otherwise Owlgossiper)
Immigration preference: Female adult immigrant
Overseer preference: Iiiiii'll think about it.

Skill preferences: Animal Trainer, Marksdwarf, Trapper, Hunting, Wrestling

I'll take Razors as a second, but it doesn't sound very dwarfish...

RE: Aluudon [DF]
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
Immigration Preference: Adult
Overseer: It's been quite a few patches since I played, and even back then I never tried very seriously. It sounds like great fun but only if people are willing to take the risk on me failing for a stupid reason.
Skill Preferences: Swimming, Fish Cleaning, Woodcrafting.
Suggested Equipment: Bag of cheese. Bag of sand. Don't really care actually.

RE: Aluudon [DF]
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.

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

RE: Aluudon [DF]
Right, the two changeable options are nickname and job title. Tripps is still a good nickname.

RE: Aluudon [DF]
For some reason, I get the impression that the culture of the Circular Quakes is matriarchal.

RE: Aluudon [DF]
And then there's the Standards of Neutrality, with their male fertility god.

RE: Aluudon [DF]
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 [strk]meat[/strk] 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.

RE: Aluudon [DF]
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.
SpoilerShow

There's Tripps, purportedly a woodworker of some skill.
SpoilerShow

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.
SpoilerShow

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.
SpoilerShow

The very matter-of-fact Doctor Palamedes.
SpoilerShow

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.
SpoilerShow

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