Succession League[edit]

Depending on how popular this becomes, inclusion in the bloodline namespace may be inappropriate. I'm willing to create a new namespace for this endeavor if it pans out. --Briess 10:32, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the tentative support. Considering that this wiki does not function as a forum, I'm not sure of the appropriate mode for response, but I hope you see this. Support so far has been quick, with 9 joining in two days, but I expect the growth to pan out around 20 and move slowly until the point that it becomes a topic of discussion and moves to be well known, when it should become a major part of the DF community. If you have the time please drop by in a few days when the interface is smoothed over and give me your opinion; learning the wiki coding is making things a little sluggish. Also, some of the functions will of course take place outside the wiki in order to reduce the amount of info clogging up space here. --The Architect 10:40, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Not a problem. Of course, wiki syntax is a bit of a hassle - I can't claim I have any real understanding of it myself either. Another option is to host this on a separate webapp (that I would create for this express purpose) if it becomes large enough (say, 50 participants or so); assuming, of course, you want to take it in that direction. --Briess 11:11, 8 October 2009 (UTC) [edit to add]: Don't worry about space or things clogging up, the server this wiki is hosted on is more than capable of the load, and has plenty of spare resources. --Briess 11:12, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
It seems you made a reply while I was editing. typed more as follows: By the way, wouldn't keeping it separate now or placing it under a category with Bloodline (but not under Bloodline, seeing as those games are only one facet) such as "Multiplayer" or "Succession" prevent hassle later on? Within a few days this is likely to generate multiple extra pages as we begin games and will continue to do so as long as it exists.
A separate application would be great; I don't have the knowhow but some of the functions (such as ratings) would benefit from an automated program to turn the raw data to tables, and asking a large number of players to learn the wiki interface in order to arrange games with each other nearly defeats the purpose of this group for the casual player. I don't want to force you to keep moving the pages I'm making (only a couple more), so if you intend to stick it under Bloodline for now then maybe you can give me a link that will teach me to do it myself? (I get the redirect, but not creating a page under the Category)
And again I'm too slow to get in before your edit, telling me not to worry about space. Either way, creating this page under Bloodline and then a dozen redirect or reredirect edits could be a avoided --The Architect
All good, to create a page under a bloodline section, type the page name like http://www.dwarffortresswiki.net/index.php/Bloodline:Something into your address bar and use the links provided on the blank page holder to create it. Hopefully that made sense. A separate category may be appropriate, but for now we'll leave it in bloodline and see how it pans out. Ps. Where do I sign up? :V --Briess 11:26, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
I was creating that page when you edited this. I will link it to the main page in a few seconds, and redirect/move the two, final main pages under Bloodline. --The Architect 11:35, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
That works for me. --Briess 11:36, 8 October 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for cleaning up after me, including the formatting on the joining page. --The Architect

Cheers. Any time. I threw together a template for this too. Let me know if you like it or not. --Briess 19:59, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

League Talk[edit]

If you would like to start a game, posting here is a very effectiive way to get attention and help.

I'm prepared to run a Succession game! I've never ran a Succession game before (or actually played one!), but I've read a few and I'm not stupid (and I have access to a good FTP server for game file swapping!). How should I go about it and any advice? -- Melek 19:25, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
I now HAVE started a couple of games, check my user page for more info. -- Melek 19:36, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Coding Help[edit]

Offer or request help with the Wiki interface here.

  • I plan to place templates in the various Discussion pages so that players can easily add games themselves (done), among other things.

Survival Game[edit]

Squirrelloid was the winner.


Have any new gems been introduced, and have gem values been verified? 
The values of many things have changed.

Much of this type of info can be found in the RAW files, rather than waiting/hoping to encounter them in gameplay. That's where I'd start.--Albedo 20:36, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

I've already verified their names, locations, and values - colors need to be checked, but I rather doubt they've changed. --Quietust 21:02, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
