It's been one week since launch and Dwarves! is going strong.
The Outpost has grown from a few tents to a nice little settlement. A mine has been established, apothecaries have been building their gardens, the smiths have now set up a proper smithy and the first Outpost newspaper - The Servant - has been released. Our first Tribute is due in a week and I am very excited to see what the future brings.
I'm continually working on extras for our Professions and Skills in the background and focused on growing Dwarves! over the coming weeks and months. Join our Discord from the main post, read through the necessary channels to become a Dwarf and get whitelisted!
The first Tribute has gone successfully, with a few minor changes needed. The Dwarves are on the way to advancing their Outpost rank, affording them more permissions, privileges and fame!
The Grol have been killed in sufficient numbers to stop them increasing their hold on the island. This is an ongoing thing, so this could all change in two weeks!
A number of Dwarves have died in the past week, though the Outpost is still going strong. A bank has been made with plans to introduce a currency, a Guild of Smiths has been established allowing metalwork to be created in a much more streamlined fashion. The Public Servant continues to keep the Outpost updated with all the recent news and changes, with its own spin on things.
In general, the server is currently going strong. The Discord is growing tremendously, with new Dwarves joining in every day. We have a solid core of players, but the more the merrier!
Veteran writer Ortho Berukahs, lead editor of The Public Servant, makes claims against apothecary Ilzar Goldspit. After these claims are made public, a number of Dwarves rush to defend Ilzar's honour, both in-person and via more publications.
Eventually, over threats and fears for his own life, Ortho has fled back to Bormar. Will the lack of a reputable newsletter now effect the Outpost? Only time will tell.
In other news, expeditions have been led against the Grol in the Red Hills - our valiant Dwarves taking many lives in their encampments.
A large, illegal build is uncovered on the very edge of the Outpost border. It has since been taken down, but this was a close call for the Outpost. Such a construction would have meant a hefty increase on their next Tribute.
Voting has begun for potential leaders of the Outpost. A single Leader, with a rank yet to be determined, supported by a Lower Chamber of 3 capable Dwarves. Campaigning is happening all of this week and we shall find out who will be the first ruler of our Outpost soon!
The first major 'expansion' of the Dwarves! world is almost complete!
The Flora update will bring in over 300 types of new plants, fungus, woods, saps and many, many more. Over time, these plants will be added into the Apothecary potion making re-work and also brought over to the Brewery plugin so you can make all sorts of new alcohol!
The Black Quiver disease has struck the Outpost. The current occupants believe a recipe for a cure must lie somewhere on the island, as the previous occupants might have had experiences with the disease.
The disease is fatal and after the 8th day death will occur. Time is ticking for our Dwarves, will they find the cure in time?
