Yeah. Steve is the unofficial name for the player.

1 spot left!

Yeah, someone got that colour already. But still, you're the last one in! I am sorting people into clans now.

EDIT: Done! Check the first post to see your assignment. Each clan must now agree on a name and a banner design. The banners all have the same size and shape:

You can either suggest a design for me to draw, or one of you could take on the challenge and try drawing one yourself. Either way, I'll give you up to a day or two to talk it over and will begin setting up the separate subforums in the meantime.

Scoring Question: is it possible for a score to go negative (for example, if a dwarf has no value or glory, but has been in the dungeon five turns, would their score be -5)?

Yep. In such a case you have brought great shame to your clan. I mean really, it's a dungeon. There's nothing BUT monsters and treasure down there!

Rules question: when a dwarf permanently exits the dungeon, does another player get to make a dwarf and join the game?

I'm never sure. Can you do a major or minor action, minor or major action, then move action? Or do you have to move first?

You can do things in any order EXCEPT you can't move after you attack. That's the one exception. I think I actually forgot to mention that in the first post, I'll go add it if so.

FROTHgar? ALEhammer? Wow. :Ahappy:

While you may have a history, we have a stratergum.

Should we post our actions here or in our clan forums?

TURN 0:

Image

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!

Are we able to do major actions after entering a new room? In other games you've moderated, this has not been the case.

I mainly ask because, for the first turn, one may want to do something in the room below, which has not been explored yet.

There's no rule prohibiting it, but it's often impossible or unwise to do so because the room is a completely mystery. Attacking the first monster you see might get your ass kicked by a powerful foe, or might even cause you run "blindly" off a ledge. If you want to attempt such a thing anyway, you're free to do so.

Loverboy walks to the wall dividing the glorious Clan That Conquered Trees from the Alehammers and shouts at the top of his mighty voice, "The weak clan of Alehammers shall fall today by the Conquered Trees's collective hand! Do not doubt it! And the same holds true for the Darkbeards! Do you not agree with me brothers?"
