I will be at Tramp's this [the 5th of February] to hopefully play a game or two of 40k. Either they'll be long because I'm new or very short because... I'm new... and Tau. So what's this thread for? Trying to make sure there's a newb friendly individual who'll be ther. I'll be able to post my points later on today once I'm actually home and not typing on my blackberry. >.<

Mod(s) if you feel this better fits in the 'looking for players' thread, sorry.

Video Games / Dwarf Fortress

I can't even begin to try to explain this game to anyone who doesn't know what it is. I'm just sort of hoping someone else has played it and was the right kind of insane to enjoy it. ;p Well maybe I will try to explain it.

Take Sim City, and mix in a little bit of the Sims. Then take away the tutorials, the graphics and add in even more content. That's kind of Dwarf Fortress, the game, if you don't have a "graphics pack" is displayed like a roguelike game, everything is "rendered" in text. A graphic pack changes that however making the game a fair bit easier. The next thing you need to know to play Dwarf Fortress is "Losing is Fun" You will never, never NEVER win Dwarf Fortress, ever. You will lose, a lot and for stupid reasons at the beginning but hey Losing is Fun.

So Saskatchewan, do we have any awesome stories of the downfall of Dwarven outposts?

This is a bit pre-emptive but; If all goes well I should be in Weyburn quite a lot during weekdays starting in the fall. As such I'm curious if anyone thereabout plays Magic the Gathering... or you know other *cough*40k*coughcough* games?
