DF Talk 17 is out. It discusses playstyles central to Dwarf Fortress, based on the definitions defined in the previous article. After contemplating further, after reading the thread’s responses, both before and after the Talk was posted, here’s my follow up thoughts on the issue.
This is reposted from a thread I created on the Dwarf Fortress forums to percolate some discussion about what people get out of the game. It was equal parts devised to get some talk going amongst players about what they want to see more of from the development, what keeps ’em around and such, as well as to use that information for DF Talk fuel. Once the DF Talk episode about playstyles drops, and some discussion filters out from that, I’ll be posting a follow-up in the thread to crystallize the completely non-scientific findings.
Here’s the pictures from the Shasta Caverns bit. Only one of my interior pictures turned out. Overall it was a fun trek up and into the mountain.
