Dwarven King
« on: 26 February 2015, 02:08:27 »
Hi, I'm new to the Forum ;)

I've got an spontanous idea. Dwarf Fortress and A Game of Dwarves have "leader dwarves", a king or a prince. In DF you had managing dwarves aswell, who, when working in their offices, increased the efficiency of the colony.
I'd like the idea of a king under the ground/mountain (Hobbit reference, yay^^), with a throne etc.
I'm not yet sure how to implement that gameplay-wise, but it would definitely add to the atmosphere ;)

PS: Craft the world is really a great game :)

Thank you, we already have this suggestion, but not sure how to realize this idea in the game.
Now we are working on fourth world, but maybe later we will return to this idea.

Well, you could introduce a throne/office that functions like the production furniture (forge, workbench etc.) and leader as a profession (better make it rare). When the king sits the throne/ works in the office, bonuses are adden. Faster working dwarves? More coins? Then as a profesion item (like archer gloves or smith's apron) you could make a crown (using gold, silber mithril and maybe cristals, so that it is expensive to produce).
Just some brainstorming ;)

But when the king dies who would be the king then? :)

I had another idea:
What about the king on his throne as a unique totem? You could find the recipe and use it once just as the teleporter pieces. The throne could either automatically spawn at the beginning stockpile or be placeabe. Once there, the king massively boosts the comfort of the shelter.

Kinda unique totem will be in the 4th world, so idea of "totem" is unsuitable now :)

Surely a great idea but for be a king they need a crown and other special equipment and the recipes is avaible in the first time on games but the equipment need rare items to make them and also maybe must have a girl on the game ?

How about adding a "King Dwarf" that is stronger then the other Dwarfs that spawns with the first dwarf and does nothing but fight, you can't control him or anything and he only stays close to the stock pile or his room (when you later make it)

This could also unlock a tech tree that is geared towards your dwarf king that improves his equipment and for say you need him to beat the strongest boss in the game.

Just a tough :)

Nice thought, we also have a lot of thoughts about that :)
