Hullo, fellow Dorfs. Some strange lookin' fellas broke into me home yesterday, abducted me and brought me here to this fort.
I am a humble farmer-Dorf, but these men told me that now I'm a leader-Dorf. That's alright, I suppose. Me mum never taught me much about
leadin', but maybe I can do good and put some of her old-world farming values back into this little fort. She taught me that
the two most precious things in a Dorf's life are liquor and farmin'. I never had no reason to doubt her. She never steered me wrong.
Oh, my name is Tosid. You c'n call me Zombie, though. Me friends started callin' me Zombie when I was little, after an elephant trampled
me head and I got up and just started playin' tag again. The doctors said I'd be a veg'table, but I proved them wrong right good.
Now, I don't know what kind of name Shirremoiled is, but I'll try me darndest to keep these fellas safe an' happy.
They sure rushed me right in. I didn't see much on account o' the sack on my head, but one time we tripped and it came off. Lots o' blood
and dead Dorfs.
Must have been one crazy party. We kept goin' in pretty far, past the entrance. Pretty sure I heard some screams, but the Dorfs with me
told me it was just one big joke welcome for their new overseer. One o' them said somefin about 'account-o-bility', but then the other
one slugged him but good. They took me into the first and told me about how the last overseer did a right bang-up job, but Dorfs are dying
and I could fix it. They asked me what my first order was. I looked all 'round, at how bloody and dirty this room was, and told 'em
to start cleanin' up their mess. Me mum would have a fit if she saw all this. They gave each other a weird look. Then they told me
I should really take care o' the goblins outside, but I told them that the goblins would still be there tomorrow. They said they'd get
the old overseer to help me out.
After scrubbin' on those floors for a while, I told the nearest Dorf that they were hard to clean up, and he suggested that we just make
a new floor over it. I told him that was good, and that he could do it with whatever we had around. I caught him later buildin' tiles to
seal up the blood stains out o' potash. Oh, well. One stain down, when he finishes. Me mum would be proud o' me critical thinking skills.
Then I got reports o' a goblin outside killin' all sorts of poor, innocent animals. I told the Dorf that was sad and all, but I had a fort to run
and these blood stains weren't going to cover themselves up.
Through all o' this, though, the goblins kept killin' people outside. So I told the nearest Dorf that we should just wall up the entrance.
He told me there were Dorfs still outside, but I just said that if they were outside, they must have bad survival instincts anyway, and I
couldn't finish cleaning up this mess with that big racket. So he told me he'd get some Dorfs to bring up some alunite for me.
But soon after that, they were workin' on bringing up the rocks when the yak over in the front went berserk! I shouted for someone to kill it,
and the Equivalence of Cloister squad burst into action. Dodok carried her baby into battle and wrecked it. Then she walked off like nothin' ever
happened. What a lady.
They did so good that I told them to go on and kill the elf who snuck inside during the seige. Me mum hates elves, so I should, too.
After that, I think we c'n get that wall finished and start some clean-up.
And then, somethin' bad happened.
Well, I know that's a hell of a lot of stuff for just five days, but it is during a goblin seige. Hopefully things will settle down some soon. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure I'm experienced enough to salvage this fort. But I'll do my best. And that means a lot of Dwarves are going to die. If nothing else, we can always have the next person continue from Sankis' save (I made a backup and he still has his, as well) and pass this off as a curiosity. Oh, and sorry about the overlapping problem in a couple of those images. I fixed it. I can also fix the odd formatting when I get home if it bothers people. Other than that, I'll continue tomorrow. Hopefully at a speedier pace. Advice would be appreciated.
