Having chosen their seven representatives, the three Clans enter the dungeon for the first time since discovering it. The king's elite guard of lawyers prevent anyone from following them, but loyal supporters await at each entrance, ready to lower a rope should any Dwarf wish to leave with their haul.
The Dwarves' first action is to hang their banners and set up their Forges. The banner is purely for decoration, but they'll come to rely on these Forges to create new equipment as they explore the dungeon. Also, each entrance room contains a statue of Moradin. These ancient works of art are known to bestow healing upon any Dwarf who prays to them, but they take many years to recharge. So, although they can bring a wounded Dwarf from the brink of death back up to full health, they are to be usef sparingly wherever they may be found!
With all of their preparations out of the way, a bell is rung in the rooms above signalling that the Dwarves may now begin their exploration.
Wealth and Honour to the victors!
Here we go guys! Good luck to each of you and may the Dwarfiest clan win.
Throughout the game I'll be posting new item descriptions in this little footer area with each update, and sometimes giving little explanations for why something in the game works the way it does. Other times I'll just be saying something stupid and basically wasting everyone's time.
I'm also setting up several threads to facilitate the running of this very large and complex game, so please give me a few minutes to do so before flooding me with posts. Also, remember that unlike my previous games, you are NOT to post your actions in the same thread as the updates! Each Clan will get their own thread for that purpose! However, you are welcome to post in-character dialogue here if you want your rival Clans to see it (and possibly respond; Dwarves can shout very loudly and be heard from anywhere in the dungeon). You can also continue to post any questions you have for me about the game. If you can't figure something out, chances are someone else can't either, so don't be afraid to speak up.
I think that's it. Hope you guys have fun!
