Hello, hello...  Is anybody in there?

EDIT FOR ALL GAMES: We're calling the shakeup Wathathafatha now, the Siege of Battles.  Uh, that means, everyone be cool about all the succession and story games.  They survive on in cryogenic form, in Toady's archive, and will be back with the forum.  Hopefully.



Aqizzar here, current turn-meister of Powerwork, making a thread in lieu of Dadamh not being here, maybe.  Just maintenance and place-holding really.

I didn't get started until today and probably won't finish this weekend, but I assume that in light of the whole flee-to-the-hills, forum-in-exile refugee group thing, I'll have an extension on my turn time.  Being master of the thread now, that's my say so.  Ha!

Don't mean to burst your bubble, but uh...  Considering the entirety of the old forums will probably be there when Toady gets his new host, you'll be SOL if you attempt anything silly like that.
Play your succession game exactly as it was before Wathathafatha occurred. (Wathathafatha = The Siege of Battles, literally, or as I'm using it here, The Downtime of Ages)
You might hold control over the first post of this thread, but that doesn't give you any more control over the succession game as being admin here does for me at Bay 12.

None of that post was serious except the appeal for time.  It's not like anything is really on track around here in our little refugee camp.

That should totally be the official name for what happened.

In 2008, Wathathafatha occurred.

And several story fortresses. They died were lost, too. I can't play my community fortress because of Wathathafatha!

They weren't lost.
Toady backed everything up.
They were simply, uh, "put on hiatus".

They're dead to me until I can view them. SO THEY'RE DEAD!

...Okay, maybe that's a bit rash. Seriously though, it's like they're cryogenically frozen until further notice... which counts as dead, hence people use their life insurance to pay for it.

BTW I'm playing my community fortress anyway, recording everything in a .txt file. The Red Sands of Doom are turning brown  Tongue

No, I got sieged. The goblins' blood turned The Red Sands of Doom a deeper shade of red, then when all the cave adapted dwarves went to pick up the loot, they puked everywhere.

Now The Red Sands of Doom are red, deeper red, green, brown, and covered in goblin body parts and clothes.

You should probably save the updates and screenshots to a word doc, so that you can post when we get back.

Don't worry I've been writing everything down... once we get our new forums up I'm going to rapid-fire post everything I've done since Wathathafatha started. I have it all on one 19kb .txt file, and a couple pictures... oh and the fortress map is up on whatever archive that is that you put maps onto.
