Looking forward to reading the journal (you'll post it here right?). :) Haven't played Dwarf Fortress in a while, such a great game.

@wallace - yeah it's okay - like I wrote before, we're starting, but people can still join :). So we can go like that:

Jeff
xmorg
maheusz
wallace

or, if you're the hasty type I can let you before me ;P. Ah, and remember to read rules in earlier post.

@Jeff - do you have a problem with a image to show on the forum? Or is it something else? You can do it my way - put it on the imageshack.us or some other picture site and then just get a link here ;). It works too. And I'm dreadfully impatient to see what hellish place did you choose :D

Bad stuff happens, sadly. Well at least I can tell that the game will be... interesting. And blue screen of death sure is irritating ;).

At least if the first one mines towards magma then the rest can do fun stuff with it... like lava moat... or deathtrap :D

Just a quick question.  what if I play without any mods/tiles?  it shouldn't mess up the saves...

Well... we're playing without mods - that is why I suggested fresh download from the DF site and I see Jeff is also using Phoebious tile set. But since there is an option in Lazy Newb Pack to convert the save (or 'update' as it is called) then it's not a problem. Just when it's your turn go copy save folder to DF directory, then go to Lazy Newb Pack starting menu, 'graphic' and 'ASCII default'. 'Install graphic' then 'update savegames' and voila - done. Next person needs just to reverse the process - changin ASCII to whatever tileset he needs ;).

So it's okay to play more hardcore (ASCII) or more leasurely (tiles) :D.

just a question, i like to normaly play with DFHACK, not for the cheaty stuff, but because i like to know what my moods are so as to prevent tantrum spirals, and because dorf legs are short as fuck and need to be much faster.

P.S. can we please not do this 'only ouside' thing, because the happiness of my dorfs depends on my ability to engrave shit for them. oh? we can do inside life now? yay! thanks guys! bye, its time to get my pink floyd on! :P

I use the DFG tile set, would this cause problems?  ??? I don't mind using the original if it does.

The tileset alone shouldn't affect the save file.  Mods will however, like making dark elves playable
