Welcome back to the Roundtable. This episode, we get the perspective of a DF user who dove in after the 50.x release. Willow joins us to discuss beginner strategies, capturing a hydra, and tabletop RPGs. Enjoy!
Note: The mid-rolls were generated by Chat GPT based on information about my new fortress and me prompting it to rephrase that info in Tolkien style. For example:
rephrase in epic tolkien style:
Urist Quakeprestige is Militia Commander of Newtower. He is an adequate Macedwarf who feels that “You can always rely on your family withen everything else falls away”. Urist disdains self control, is frail, and quick to despair.
Urist is close friends with chief medical dwarf Mebzuth Budsabre – a hateful quarreler who values power. Mebsuth is a competent diagnostician, and an adequate surgeon, bone doctor and suturer. Mebsuth declares “I am well”.
Mebsuth’s friend Minkot Fencedfountain is patient, resilient, and has good focus. These traits make her an ideal fortress manager, which she will surely accomplish while also being the fortresses most competent cook. “An artisan, their materials and the tools to shape them” exclaims the 70 year old manager dwarf.
These seven dwarves are renowned as the elders of Newtower of Showing. Praise them with great praise.
Hey everybody – Nick Rust from The Literate Gamer podcast joins us – we try to keep on topic (new players to the game since the release of version 50.x). We are partially successful. Par for the course for the show. Hope you enjoy it!
