Dwarf Fortress Succession: Beigeknife, or "Waterburned, the Spinoff":
Conqueror of Hell Itself
Waterburned II: You All Meet In A Festering Bog (Or A Desert I Guess)Long ago, when the original fortress is still hobbling along, a spinoff was decreed for those whose computers were unable to handle all the blood. We embarked in

The Misanthropic DoucheHow did the farmer manage to become the expedition leader?
Conqueror of Hell ItselfFour dimple cups, a carving knife, and a captive audience.

Marvelous wish-granting engineSign me up. Second or third would probably be better than first, since I'm still governing Waterlagged. Burned. Shut up.
Chuubos Marvelous Wish Granting Engine is cool. Salute! Apocynum!
==>Man, Beigeknife is the most lukewarm fortress name out there. I'd also like to go second.
Conqueror of Hell ItselfWe will make the colour beige badass, mark my word. Tentative roster:

Generic Evil EmperorI'd like to be dorfed, dunno about a turn just yet. Got a lot of stuff I'm working on and I struck the mortal wound to the both TV Tropes games.

The Misanthropic DoucheI'd so offer to play a round if I had any idea what I was doing.
Conqueror of Hell ItselfFluff post.
Dwarven fortresses throughout history have been known for two things: their great triumphs over the forces of nature, and the inevitable collapse that follows such triumphs like a donkey after migrants. The merchants that travelled to and from the distant ventures of our brethren spoke more and more of the toil of one fortress, under the flag of the Massive Room. Its paradoxical name, Waterburned, was one of the simpler things about that place; what began as tales of a quiet hamlet under blood-red skies quickly took a dark turn. Tales of horrible eldritch beasts and their battles with the settlement's valiant defenders (or aggressors, depending on the story and the drink) filled taverns across the dwarven lands. These stories had two constants: the incredible power that slept at the heart of the earth, and the all-too-deadly wrath of its protectors. It would not take long for these rumours to reach the royal court, and for them to take root in the minds of the dwarven nobles. The power-that-sleeps-below would be seized, the conquest of the Infernal Halls resumed, and the glory of dwarvenkind reclaimed, by any means and at any cost. Countless expeditions to the darkest realms of the world were launched. Few arrived, and fewer sent word back. We were some of the lucky ones. As my feet sink into the soil of this filthy bog, I stare out into the fog in the distance, looking for a place to get out of the filthy air of this place. As I ready a pick and stare at the ground, I mutter a single sentence I learned from the merchants. Its meaning eludes me, but its function is clear. "Gods damn it, Rotpar."
The Misanthropic DoucheThe one thing that lasted the ages: It's always Rotpar's fault.
Conqueror of Hell ItselfSlowly but surely, Rotpar's name is spreading across the world. Honestly, most of the more infamous denizens of Waterburned could probably be named in the uncouth mutterings of dwarvenkind. To say nothing of "earwig monster" or "three-eyed demon". (I place Beigeknife chronologically a few years, let me say seven, ahead of Waterburned. Schrödinger's Cast is entirely in effect as to whether it succeeded or got crushed. That is the extent to which I will say the continuity word.)

Conqueror of Hell ItselfOkay, if Grizzly wants to go later and wikkit and Dorku want to stick to their slots, that means Tuefel goes up to the front. Between Rotpar I (unleashed Hell to begin with) and Rotpar II (helped fishsicles II unleash it the second time), that name is pretty strongly associated with the whole Ia! Ia! Armok fhtagn! shenanigan at this point.

Conqueror of Hell ItselfWe have both deep and surface metals at the site, so hopefully we will hit usefulness sooner. We really need to build a NAPALM at some point.
lurkbieI'd like to volunteer for a turn in this, too, seeing as how it'll be forever until my turn in Waterburned.
It's happeningSounds pretty cool. I'd rather participate in this than Waterburned, since all the demons will probably lag up my computer no end. Dibs on the brewer!

Can I get dorfed with the first migrants please? ^_^
What? Can't a guy have long hair?Sweet, I once again am the most badass dwarf in the fortress. Though I kind of expected my name to be more of a title, passed down from badass to badass. Whatever, at least rotpar is blamed for issues. lets not let him have a turn at this fortress, ok? edit: I think I may try my hand at some of those journal entry things from the dwarven point of view some of you try, not sure though. Any of you think I should? Also, I just looked, and about 7 years after the current time in waterburned would appear to be near the end of ROTPAR's next turn. So that's why we left.

Of course Tvtropes can take over the world! The very site itself is a mind control device!
Munchkin in trainingHello, friends! I'm too busy/not smart enough to play DF but could I please be dorfed in Beigeknife?
