Noob Streams Gnomoria - BadAshGames
« on: November 09, 2014, 01:15:28 PM »
Hey peeps! A seasoned video maker here, streaming Gnomoria on Hitbox.tv  8)

Hitbox Channel: http://www.hitbox.tv/Badashgames
Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/BadashGames

Next stream at: No Idea yet.
In game time: Year 4 Spring
Event: Top Half of a Pyramid

About me: Call me Andrakon of BadAshGames! I've been making videos for youtube for around three years so I got some experience. I also grew a personality and loads of humor, it needed some fertilizer so I may be full of crap  :P . I started with minecraft but have retired, and now I play Kerbal Space Program and Gnomoria. I also used to play Dwarf Fortress and I may talk about it sometimes, but really Gnomoria is very different so my DF experience seems rather worthless. I do like to experiment with new designs and ways of doing things, so you may occasionally see something new, once I grow enough experience with mechanisms.

Episode List:
(1) Terrace Place http://www.hitbox.tv/video/313442
(2) Big Farmage http://www.hitbox.tv/video/313443
(3) Quest for Iron http://www.hitbox.tv/video/313444
(4) Borehole http://www.hitbox.tv/video/315242

I am still pretty new at Gnomoria so I am open to suggestions, criticisms, and especially good and new ideas!  ;) (I still don't know what I'm doing most of the time lol)

Year 1 Winter 12
The Told Land (Seed: 123456789 at 123456789x123456789 Famous Stepped Map)
 
I've been streaming on hitbox for a bit and so we will be starting this story at Year 1 Winter 12, with a population of 15 and a kingdom worth of 6431. I have intentionally kept the kingdom worth super low while I have my 5 monks train. The strategy I plan to employ is to now go find some iron, turn it into steel and get some hammers and axes together for a new squad and convert my monk squad into shield bearers. This may take a couple streams to accomplish.



We are running on a primary diet of grain, stored raw to not attract mants. Backup food is oranges, orc sausage, and yak sausage. There is a well for the main drink and soon there will be 3. I got most of the industry together and everyone has bedrooms. The military has wool 4 poster beds and nicer rooms. The fort layout is rather sloppy and i'm just winging it on design right now. I am considering making a decorative fort in the future if things don't go really bad.

Year 2 Fall 10
Over the last year we managed to dig down and get loads of iron! I made two steel hammers immediately and was quite taken back by their immense worth. Both were worth just under 4000k each! This as well as several well made copper traps and other developments brought our kingdom worth up to 21,058 by this date. We had 5 more immigrants show up and the unfortunate buggers were immediately thrown into a new squad of Monks. I switched out one of the veterans from the old squad to head and train up these scrubs. We also built up some winding paths at our entrance and started filling them up with copper spike traps. We will eventually start using better materials in them but for now these will do. Strangely enough we had one group of four goblins run into a local bear. One goblin the bear died, then for some reason the very bloody survivors just ran away! We were all ready for a fight too. I am quite amazed at how quickly my veteran monks are able to dispatch goblins. Everything is usually over within a second or two.



Over this next winter we plan to start making some more steel weapons  and make more traps. We will take it slow so we don't get overwhealmed with a big iron clad goblin raid. Just a couple weapons at a time. I'm still not sure how they know how much our kingdom is worth when most of the worth is a couple weapons sitting in a box that are not yet even used...

Year 3 Summer 9
Population 21
Kingdom Worth 28698

Instead of jumping on steel weapons I decided to start building a palace of sorts. This will give our two squads of monks more time to practice. The first squad is ready to be converted into a shield squad by year 3 summer 9. The first part of the grand palace plan was a big hole...



This took quite a while to dig out but we did manage to get another Gnomad that I told to go mine stuff.

One problem we encountered several times was dirt golums appearing in the hole! This made our military a little buisy at the wrong time and we had a small goblin invasion. Wizwinky, our engineer happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and fought with the invasion while the military came to the rescue. This unfortunately led to her loosing a leg. There was also a mass animal exodus... Sometime during the spring everyone was so busy with hauling and other duties that we ran out of straw and let the fields grow wild. We lost all our animals except 5 yaks.

Now that the hole is dug we can start on the palace at last!  :D

looks good and since the golem update ive been turning them off i dislike that they can spawn in any light and are retardedly strong specially if you have just started
