The Dwarf Fortress of Spreading Joy (Losing is Fun)
Now that there's bartenders and bands, temples, and libraries in Dwarf Fortress, I thought it'd be fun to play through a year of a Fortress with various dwarves randomly chosen to have the names of people from the Geek. One year is likely not enough time for anything stupidly interesting to happen so this is mostly mundane but with some entertaining stuff to call out (at first... give it some time).

I'll probably keep the GeekList going over time and if anyone's interested we can make this a community hand-off Succession game. Leave a comment if you wanna take the reins (reigns!). The only rule I suppose is that you provide a list of Geeks for the Cast list below so we know who's in the Fortress (and update if the person is still alive).

Some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent (i.e. I "know" some of you by your username and others by whatever you put as your name so the dwarves' names are arbitrary that way).

Without further ado, the Dwarf Fortress of Spreading Joy (originally part of Bring joy to VGG!).

It is the year 125, early spring, (Granite, 1)
Some notable particulars
From gallery of USP45

• Apparently Mulligans—the leader of this fated expedition—is female in this alternate dimension. In the real-world Mulligans is (based on my limited knowledge of him from various PbV games) a beer guzzling cigarette smoking machine of a green-earphoned man.
• A couple messages popped up that seem to match the personality of this Geek:
○ `Caroline', Ranger: I have improved my crossbow. That was very satisfying!
§ The flying ({iron bolt}) strikes The Weasel in the lower body, tearing apart the skin!
§ The Weasel is propelled away by the force of the blow!
§ `Caroline' has become a militia commander.
• And of course puppies
○ Stray war Dog (Tame) has given birth to puppies.
○ Stray Dog (Tame) has given birth to a puppy.
• Dunno what happened here:
○ `Mulligans', Miner has been missing for a week.
○ `stelio' has assumed the position of expedition leader of The Adventurous Anvil of Urns.
○ I have a feeling it might have been when we were testing the construction of a newly built drawbridge. Some dwarf pulled the lever, the bridge rose, and possibly Mulligans was standing on the bridge at the time. Perhaps he was catapulted and took a week to get back. Dunno what happened but he's at the helm again somehow.


`stelio'
