    Here we are once again gentlemen, preparing to go full-beard into the abyss.

    This time we are going to do it succession style, and get the fuck over it if you don't know how to play (we won't make it to your turn anyway [You know who you are, whoever I am speaking to {I know who you are too}]). I am claiming first turn, and each turn will last one year. I don't give a kobold's ass if you are just in the middle of something, when Spring rolls around you pack your shit and move out of the office. With all that said, lets get down to business:
    • Who wants to sign up for overseer duty? - list below
    • Who wants to just claim a beard and watch from the sidelines?
    • Where should we embark? - Embark done
    • What should we bring with us? - Embark done
    • Mods or no? - No mods (LNP available though)
    • How much time should be devoted to dancing? - All the time
    • Do you gentlemen have any bets lined up for how long we will last? - We are lasting till the dancing stops (which is never)
    Well, you all know what to do! Start giving me something to work with and we should have a fort running withing the next day or so! And one last thing regarding turns, we will set up more solid time limits as we progress, but for now we should all try to pass off our shit within three or four days at the longest. If you can't take your turn when it rolls around you can switch turns with the person after you (so that people aren't scared to give up their turn because it would force them to the back of the line, as so often happens with these things).

    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY. WHAT IS OUR GLORIOUS NAME!?

    Templemountain the God-Forsaken Peak!!!

    So we'll actually have people who will want to do a succession game this time?

    No dancing until the 5th year. May Armok have mercy.

    Also, no mods, except for lazynoobpack. I claim the first beard. Make me a miner.

    Aye, succession or bust. Also I may explode from lack of dance.

    No mods, cus most people arnt accustom to them probably, the settling place should be up to you jayce, equipment should also be up to you but with advice on what to bring, shit loads of dancing, I'd like a dwarf named odyssey and finally I can take the fort on also long as people dont mind that im not experianced with late game stuff and setting complicated machines up, I can do most of the other stuff, better practise a bit to get used to df again :D
    Also I dont mind where we settle so long as its not an aquifer as I have zero experiance with them.
    EDIT: by no mods I meant lazy newb pack :p

    I'm a fair hand at set, up implementation of efficient design, and designs of certain machines. I would be more than happy to help on this.

    Aye, I was messing around with advanced settings earlier and have a pretty good grasp of it (but I'm not touching the temperature settings)

    BUT IT'S SO SHINY...

    Ok, so - turn list so far:
    • Me
    • Odyssey
    • Pete
    • Chaz (?), Cody(?) (couldn't tell if either of you were signing up for overseer duty)
    It sounds like people want LNP - I haven't used it before but I'll go ahead and start up the save with it (though I am going straight ascii + in-game menus because I'm an old motherfucker). Anything else I should know before I fire it up?
