Title: Shared Map RP Meta-Game (Sign Up!)

Seed uses "hydroabyssnomis".

Me and 2 friends are going to be starting a game where we share the same map seed. We claim locations and trade with each other using debug mode. I have posted the rules of the game here (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YMZkkgFhqUavht54wuFj-ufTzAckghhA9ho2IMBomrM/edit?usp=sharing).

I thought I should post what happens here as well as if anyone else wants to try this type of game out. Its not competitive but instead collaborative. Creativity is rewarded while power gaming is frowned upon. We expect anyone who wants to play to share their bases and attempt to trade with other players. There is no attacking or taking over others. Its a first come first serve type of deal where claimed land is done on the honor system. Please respect others and try to give room around other peoples places so they can expand if they choose to. The map is HUGE so there should be lots of room for everyone. If you claim a place please post like I am below ...

Nation: Hydronia
Player: Hydromancerx
Location: 8.5E, 18.67N
Biome/Terrain: Temperate Forest / Flat/ Coastal

The game is ment to be in a more role playing style where you chronicle the history of your nation. The more detailed and creative you get the better your story will be. Try to build your nation as if it were a real society. Avoid gamey things like kill boxes and mountain bunkers. Make a tribal village with huts. Grow it into a medieval town with maybe a castle. What makes your culture different from the others?

Make landmarks and monuments. Who is the leader of your nation? Are their different social classes? Make specific buildings such as a city hall, court house, church, barracks, library, university, hospital, shops, parks, jail, armory, training grounds, baths, labs, factories, museum, graveyard, city walls, streets, power plants, water plant, garbage dump, tavern, lighthouse, docks, warehouses, fishing dock, farmland, mines, and so on!

In short your goal is to make the most impressive and creative nation you can. Like it says in the rules, use any difficulty you want and whatever mods you like. This is made to be fun! So who else wants to join me and my friends on this Rimworld?

Meet the founding 5 members of the Hydronia Tribe.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/flint_zpsai6ynt0c.png)
Flint is main builder, miner and warrior of the tribe. He is married to Oceania and is the brother of Zia. Like everyone in the Hydronia tribe he is a hard worker.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/zia_zpswqy5ogke.png)
Zia is the main Healer of the tribe. She is also good at farming. Like all the women of the Hydronia tribe she is very pretty and very upbeat.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/meka_zps75x2mhyc.png)
Meka is the leader of the tribe as well as the main negotiator and researcher. She founded the tribe with her son Plutoq.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/oceania_zpszlk8wrpt.png)
Oceania is the main cook of the tribe. However she has many other talents such as crafting, healing and mining.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/plutoq_zpscr7zw4m3.png)
Plutoq is the main hunter of the tribe is great with the bow.

How will this tribe do? Will they survive? Only time will tell.

And so the Hydronia Tribe begins. Their temperate forest has many ruins one of which is right next to where they began to settle.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia01_zps0zkggmoe.png)
They chop, gather and build. And before they know it they have a small log hut, some berries, mushrooms, aloe and some basic weapons (club and bow). It's not much but it is only the first day.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia02_zpshpsme61o.png)
A couple days later they manage to make more log huts and even a central fire pit. Everyone has real beds now and a place to eat and butcher animals. Now the hunter just needs to go out and hunt. Looks like their first visitors arrived. Too bad everyone is asleep.

Back In Hydronia they picked a water source nearby. Note the pump can placed anywhere but I wanted it to act as if you were gathering water from the pond.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia04_zpsh28qu3s6.png)
A few more buildings were made. Two rooms for guest to stay in and one for Meka to study in. She is now a full time researcher unless somone visits in which she has the best diplomacy. They also discovered Olives and how to make Pemmican.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/Val_zpsrvuf7oep.png)
And look who arrived! Flint and Zia's dad, Val! He is a War Chief / Mad Scientist ... and Gay! Defiantly an interesting guy. Perhaps he will become the new leader of Hydronia.

Their first raider arrive and the guys went out to protect the village. They quickly downed him and then took him prisoner. They had minor damage and even healed the raider. Meka has been trying to convert him to the tribe.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia06_zpsir18jgfo.png)
Zia planted the first crops of Mushrooms and Aloe. They have also discovered other wild plants like cherries and peaches. However they do not know how to grow them yet.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia07_zpsoriqz0f9.png)
To prepare for future raiders they built log fences around the perimeter of the village. Its mainly to keep wild animals out since it will not do much against any raiders.

Hydronia has discovered all there is to discover in the Neolithic and has advanced to the Medieval Era! There was another raid and they killed one of the raiders and got their gun. Also some of them even ate the raider for some reason! Then the prisoner escaped and was shot and killed with the gun. There was also a bear around that was eating the turkeys they were trying to tame so he had to be killed as well. Three turkeys were tamed and a squirrel was self tamed.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/caravan_zpsciulctf9.png)
Some stray caravan muffalo were found and raided of their goods. They found all sorts of items from cloth, metals, food and even medicine! They now have access to Agave, Corn, Potatoes and Rice.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia09_zpsdyxmgo6b.png)
Large cottages with shops in them were built. One has a Tailor Shop and the other a Smithy. Also work has begin on a castle in the middle of the village.

Flint and Zia's Mom arrives. She is also Val's ex-lover. Looks like Flint and Zia were not adopted. I wonder when Val came out of the closet. Had to be after his kids were born.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia10_zpsgkuvc6gw.png)
Many alpacas were tamed and now they get lots of wool. Also the turkeys had chicks. So via the rules, I can not unlock chickens!

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia12_zpsklyty19a.png)
Work continues on the castle. Doesn't help there is an ancient ruin in the middle of it. As long as no one opens it until they are ready.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia11_zpsnfhstzot.png)
Awww nuts! Really? Well that's not good.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia13_zpsmxvyv6ne.png)
However they ave just reached the Industrial Era! Perhaps the wonders of the mechanization can save them from these space invaders.

The ship makes all the animals go mad and they kill Flint. This pisses off Val and he runs to the ship with his gun. But is also killed along with his alpacas.

(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/Hydromancerx/Rimworld/hydronia15_zpsck6dlsri.png)
The rest of the tribe try to fight and they manage to down the alien, but not before the alien gets a grizzly to take out the Oceania the last survivor. With no one to save them anyone left alive slowly bleeds to death.

And so ends the story of the nation of Hydronia.

For many moons, our people knew peace, and lived within the fertile valleys of the great plains. This did not last, for in the night they came from the sea, those children of the deep waters. Monstrous in form and nature, they showed no mercy, taking who and what they would. The blood of those that resisted stained the soil, and fire took the rest.

Not all died though. Five of us managed to escape under the cover of darkness, having been warned by the screams. Fleeing for our lives, we traveled many days till we could no longer. We will make our home here now, and defend ourselves. We will not fall to those who seek us harm, nor shall we succumb to fear. We are the people of Velkana, and we shall remain.

The five survivors, and their traits, backgrounds, and skills.

With nothing save the clothes on our backs, we were forced to take shelter within the ruins of a small building for the night. Here we would stockpile food, and rest, till we could rebuild our tents. Hopefully we would not be attacked till then.

We found the following plants: Bananas, Coffee , Lemongrass, Taro, Smokeleaf, Mushrooms, Peaches, Coconuts, Pineapples, Rice, Aloe, Bamboo
We soon began planting, for though we could gather much from the wild, a stable food source would be necessary for our survival.

As one day became two, and the groundworks for a small camp were being built along the coast, a most wondrous thing happened. Fox, while crafting bows for our hunting and defense, must have invoked the great spirits, for one came to invoke their power!

A sign of good tidings, perhaps? Only time would tell.

The day begins well, as an outsider, similarly adrift in the world just as we are, approaches us. She has traveled many days, and despite her initial hesitance stemming from an innate shyness, eventually opens up and offers to join us. We gladly accept her, and soon Worm becomes a welcome member of the community. With her help, we begin taming the wild beasts of this land, and acquire several chinchillas, capybaras, and even a panda!

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%208.16.09%20AM_zpsa9mmoqug.png)

All is going well, until...

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%208.53.42%20AM_zpsph6dklwp.png)

On membranous, bat-like wings it descends from the heavens, landing just beyond some distant hills. Alarms are raised, and our people take position, raising bows and clubs, prepared to defend our newfound home to the last. As it approaches, we realize that this is no mere sky beast, but some many of monster not unlike those that destroyed our old home. With fury in our hearts, we fight it, piercing its grisly hide with many arrows until, with a screech, it finally succumbs. A few of us are wounded, and some complain of a painful burning in their heads, but soon all is well again, and we burn the beast.

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%208.55.30%20AM_zpsksmfqhen.png)

The days following are filled with good omens. Though a human raider attempted to invade, no doubt thinking us weak, we quickly overwhelm him. Imprisoning him, we decide to spare him, so that he may tell his kin to avoid us lest he incur our wrath. At this time we also gain word of other nearby groups. One comes to us with open arms of friendship, while the other glares at us threateningly.

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%209.45.38%20AM_zpslqkywbfb.png)

We begin building defenses around our village, piling logs upon logs to slow down those that might seek to do us harm. Clubs and bows, wooden plating too, are crafted in large numbers, and many are blessed by the gods with enchantments! Truly we shall survive these foes! If only to further prove this point, our researcher Blue has unlocked are true mental potential, and we are no longer mere tribals, but are now Medieval.

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%209.58.30%20AM_zpslya3q1p0.png)

More threats soon come, including the devils of the water, the foul children of the deep themselves! Fishy-eyed and scaly bodies, dripping in slime and gurgling unintelligently, one comes crawling onto land, heading directly for our village. We quickly slay it before it can harm anyone, but it is a troubling sign. The beasts have found us... yet we have managed to slay one this time. Perhaps they can be beaten back into the sea!

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%209.12.47%20AM_zpsfkb6snq9.png)

More days pass, and we build up our defenses further, creating barricades and ballistas to guard our checkpoints, and lay traps to ward off attackers. During this time, another of the sky demons came, landing in the middle of our village in a strange metal pod. Distracted by a chinchilla, we catch it by surprise and surround it, finishing it off quickly. Soon another object fall from the sky, however, this time landing further out and igniting in a burst of flame. It was much larger than the sky demon's pod, and as we approach, we see the dead littering the forest floor... and one living. He fires at us, shouting in a foreign tongue, and we are forced to kill him. We scavenge we can then, finding what traders were calling "guns" and armor. We are stronger now, and just in time too.

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%202.41.49%20PM_zpsqxvwkwzh.png)

A new horror arrives, hailing from the far north...

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%203.07.57%20PM_zpsitjgef8t.png)

Slithering, sliding along the jungle floor, all life before it flees. It bothered not with bird and beast, though, and instead heading directly for our village. It was slow, though, slow enough that we took positions and manned our ballistas. Firing into its bubbling flesh, great bolts pierced it and bullets tore holes into the ever forming eyes and tendrils, yet continue onwards it did, seemingly unfazed. It overran our position, flowing over our defenses, and we were forced to pull back. All seemed lost until Nim, no doubt guided by the gods themselves, must have struck something vital in the thing, for it keeled over as soon as her shot hit it. Dead though it seemed, its flesh still shimmered, and so with blades and axes we chopped it to bits and then fed them to the fire till none remained. We had survived again, and without loss. Truly we would prevail, there could be no doubt.

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-24%20at%203.15.48%20PM_zpsko3wcd2w.png)

You have to start out from tribal and work your way up. If you can reach nuclear power that's awesome but you have to start from the bottom and work your way up.

Do you have a print screen button on your keyboard? Then past in some sort of image program like MS paint. Then upload to an image hosting site or as an attachment on the forum.

Dave, don't take this the wrong way, but it doesn't seem like you've followed the rules for this. It would appear that you started with a crash landing start instead of tribal (which would make you industrial), that you gave yourself gear like weapons and chicken eggs instead of starting with nothing save the clothes on your back, and that you're growing plants without either finding them in the wild first or buying them from traders.

Eventually, a trader passes through, and brings with him a story of a far away military base, untouched for many years. Intrigued, Blue offers to explore it, and leaves for several days. The fates smile upon us, for during that time no invaders do come nor do disasters plague us.

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-25%20at%208.15.21%20PM_zpsce5qbgzl.png)

He returns, bringing with him mechanical components in great amount. Though we have no need for such things, we realize the potential for them, and thus we safeguard them till the day they may prove of use. Resuming his work soon after, he soon finds himself a strange artifact. Activating it, the device crumbles in his grasp... but not after sending out a signal. Then we saw them coming over the hill.

Raiders were inbound.

A brutal conflict occurs, but we manage to survive, while they were forced to flee... leaving two wounded behind. Seeing this, we capture them, and attempt to recruit. Eventually, one decides to join us.

Klavdiya is a welcome addition to our tribe. With her onboard, it was finally time to enter into the foreboding structure that lay just beside our village. Nim chose to be the first to penetrate the wall... and quickly came to regret her decision! MECHANOIDS!

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-25%20at%208.21.15%20PM_zpsm8zlxeww.png)

They down her quickly, then proceed to charge upon our base. Our defenses our quickly overwhelmed, but we manage to destroy them all. We quickly proceed to rescue Nim, and then to open the ancient tombs these mechanical monsters were guarding.

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-25%20at%208.27.51%20PM_zpsyizd8edu.png)

As soon as Kado touches one, they all burst open at once, revealing their occupants. These people, wounded they were, we rescued, though we returned one back to her pod to sleep. The others we keep guard on, and attempt to recruit. But during all this... more horrors arrive...

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-25%20at%208.32.30%20PM_zpsx7gtttgc.png)

As if sensing weakness, they arrive. However, this time they do not find some poorly defended village, but a tribe with traps and walls and guns!

Victory was all but assured. And in more than one way...

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-25%20at%208.34.36%20PM_zpsjmxww6rr.png)

Walls joins us, but her body is wracked with pain. A sickness, one born of a transplanted synth organ, weakens her, and an addiction to go-juice does so even further. The path to recovery will be long and treacherous, but we will overcome. Nothing but-

(http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/Nergali/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-25%20at%208.47.31%20PM_zpsrbmc3s1q.png)

They've returned! And in greater numbers!

Our tribesman rush to their defenses, raising guns and arrows against the monstrous swarm. The battle is long, many traps go off, but eventually we prevail... all is good again, but for how long?

- - -

So anyone up for trading? I've got the previously mentioned fruits/vegetables, as well as oranges and healroot now. Also acquired a self-tamed elephant (which I'm keeping) and an emu,  capybaras and chinchillas for sale.

Also, something interesting... happened. Turns out Blue has become lovers... with the prisoner Selma. What should I do? Would it be against the rules to use console to force recruit her, as she's been in there for a few seasons chatting with him (she has a 96% resist recruit rate).

Thanks. It has 3 ways in (cause two have shallows, which can't be built upon), but are defended by shields, traps, pitfalls, barricades, and ballistas. I want to build a castle, but have nowhere near enough bricks. Also want to improve the houses a bit, though the beds are now all normal and above, so that helps a bit. Just managed to finally get over a massive sleeping sickness epidemic, and actually managed to recruit that prisoner who Blue fell in love with.

I look forward to your new base Hydro... will you try a new biome, like jungle, desert, or even the far north?

Ok I'll bite, This seems like fun.

Random starting location

Meet the founders of Muffalo point
(http://i.imgur.com/sAtOpUR.jpg?1)

Our fearless leader, Born of the Muffalo shaman of old and direct descendant of the people of the stars here to lead us to a brighter future, For unknown reasons he was cast out of his old tribe and shunned, His secret however is as a boy he broke tribal customs and entered an ancient ruin considered sacred to all tribes known as the place where the descendants of all crashed in a ship of glittering stone from the sun came to this vast world, He found an ancient trinket in this ancient temple of the gods that is a large thin slab of a material whos name has long been lost to the people with a strange glass and rock upon the top, Engraved upon the bottom in script so old only the shaman still know it are the words "Personal survival computer of Captain Arctic Fox" Whos name is legend as being the one to lead the sun ship through the skies and the one who tried to teach the people the ways of building before being betrayed to this day the Arctic fox is considered a holy animal as a homage to this legend and killing one save in the most desperate of need is considered a curse punishable by death via fire, This strange slab can be opened to reveal buttons and a square of even stranger glass, This slab when left in the sun all day will cause the glass inside to glow and show the sacred words of the old, The buttons can then be made to move and change these words, The words tell of new things and ideas, What to do with them and how to build them.

Grey when he tried to show this astounding find to his father he was cast out and chased for many moons by his tribe they thinking he cursed them by entering the shrine who's name has been lost to time, He has now founded his own tribe and intends to use the sacred slabs words to help his people learn thinking it foolish to spit on this gift from the gods and his direct ancestors, He is also very learned in the way of arts and is able to make things from paint and wood and stone that are pleasing to the eyes, He is however unabashedly lazy and will never be caught cleaning or helping move objects unless it suits his own needs.
(http://i.imgur.com/vxfF1sV.jpg)
Our warrior and defender, He lost his family and his tribe to bandits and evil blood machines of the gods, He will not stop defending his new family until his dying breath he is a master of arms and can use any weapon known to the people.
(http://i.imgur.com/SE8V21H.jpg)
Our builder, Strong, Powerful and dedicated, She knows the rocks of caves and which are able to be dug out to use as homes and building material and which require strange glittering rocks from the sky in order to break and move, She is tireless in her work and peerless in her construction of adobe and huts of wood and straw.
(http://i.imgur.com/2CFrGxS.jpg)
Our shy and reclusive witch doctor, She watched her entire village burn and her tribe cut down with fire wands by sky bandits and was unable to help her dying tribe watching them bleed out in the dirt from her hiding place under the trash pile where her mother placed her before being taken as a slave and plaything of the sky bandits, She was able to escape and vowed to never allow her ignorance of healing prevent her from helping someone again and learned all she could from every tribe she met, Though unable to inflict harm and always shy and jumpy she is peerless in her ways of healing and plants in all this strange land, She has even learned the secrets of Sky people medicine and is able to use these rare treasures to heal her tribe.
(http://i.imgur.com/XjQYEy1.jpg)
And last but not least, Our cook and maker of clothing and beads, She follows in her mothers footsteps in knowing the secrets of plants and how to combine them into filling dishes that rarely make one sick and keep one strong, She also knows the art of making baskets, leather, clubs, and bows from her father, she is not the best crafter known to the people but by far the best at multiple talents and learns faster then any other, Many expect her to one day surpass her father in this regard and even her mother.
(http://i.imgur.com/ta8uhhR.jpg)

Our fearless new tribe of a strange new grasslands thrown together by circumstance staying together from need will they prosper and thrive? Or will they perish and succumb to the dangers and hungers of this place? Will the ancient slab bring them back into the prosperity known to the ancients as the paradise of an advanced colony? Only time will tell.

As Grey and his band survey the area looking for a safe place to begin building they stumble across some shiny stone ruins spotted with brown flakes right next to a steam vent and the most fertile soil any of them have ever seen, Grey and the other consult and decide even though nothing is left of value in the ruins it is a sign from the gods and the decide to settle here and start making plans for huts in the meantime they place the food they have gathered as they explored within the ruins as the shiny stone seems to keep cooler then the rest of the area, they decide that they will turn this into a holy shrine when the village grows enough.
(http://i.imgur.com/ZwaCvpr.jpg)
Soon Starling with the help of the others cutting wood his built some rudimentary huts, They aren't fancy and are not as nice as what they grew up with but the huts belong to them.
(http://i.imgur.com/rIvvsSO.jpg)
As they are finishing the prisioner hut Starling's brother Bascullo shows up having decided to follow his sister
(http://i.imgur.com/fPKN6yT.jpg)
Soon Grey and Starling talk and decide they need a grand hut where a table and chairs as well as a bench to study the sacred slab can be set up Starling agrees and it is soon done, They decide to use the extra space for storage in preparation of moving the stores from the sacred building, Just as they finish a rabid racoon attacks Trobo and has its skill crushed with one mighty blow by Leopord
(http://i.imgur.com/DzXkgkS.jpg)
With a loud scream and explosion the villagers of Muffalo point are awoken as they creep from there huts they see smoke rising in the distance and go to investigate only to find twisted shiny rock that they have since learned from the slab is called steal as they search the wreckage they find strange round fruits that have a soft pink center that is among the best thing any have tasted, When they ask the slab it reply's that the fruit is called watermelon and they learn how to plant it soon after.
(http://i.imgur.com/Tjxv4qJ.jpg)
One day as Bascullo and Leo are out taming muffalos a giant bang is heard then a drone washes over all making them weak for a moment before it passes as bascullo turns to leo to see if he is ok the heard of muffalo suddenly scream as one and begin attacking leaving both on the ground with many injurys, luckily for them Trobo sees them and calls for help.
(http://i.imgur.com/n0IjN7y.jpg)
Soon all save Starling have been taken down by the muffalo who manages to kill the last 3 alone, She revives Trado and together they haul the wounded back to the camp.
(http://i.imgur.com/QBHeEuF.jpg)
Shortly after this event as they are healing Grey and Trado having always been fond of each other decide to become lovers, Seeing this leo works up the courage to ask Starling to become his lover and she agrees, So to celebrate this he combines the huts of both pairs of lovers and constructs large beds for both and lays bamboo mats down to help make the huts feel more like home.

I play on a low end laptop. Will the base mods needed to participate change the running performance of the game in a way that makes it more intensive on hardware? I would like to take part as it seems cool.
Edit: I mean the RED mods on the list.

not really i run an old walmart special with a gen one A6 apu when im working and it chugs along at same fps with or without base mods.

that said without seeing your specs no one can give a for sure answer so your best bet is to just give it a try and it it works great if not unload the mods, Also im fairly sure this is dead no one has posted in a while.

The mods are basically optional. They just make the game either easier in the case of the prepare carefully, or allow players to trade the same mod items. There are some that need to be installed before you start if you are planning to use the mod. Since they do not work in a saved game.

in short all you really need to be able to do is work the debug mode. Such as if you are not using the prepare carefully you will need to delete the starter items, food and pets.

so i was moving my stuff from an old 60GB 5400 RPM HDD i used for steam saves that was starting to make a weird noise to a new 600gb 15000 and a lot of the data including my rimworld saves decided to be corrupted and unreadable beyond saving so this is my colony now

i'll start up a new one later tonight.

random start location

Meet the members of Fox peak (so named because i spawned ontop of 5 wild foxes)

(http://i.imgur.com/8MKkSs3.jpg?2)
Meet Gabella the shy but talented crafter, Always quiet but always ready with a warm smile or joke when one takes the time to talk to her.

(http://i.imgur.com/8IEnMtW.jpg?1)
And this is Galga the ever curious, Quick witted and smart good with animals and people of all sorts, She also learned to read common from a missionary passing through her village as a child which only fueled her lust for the knowledge of old and lead to her combing through many old wrecks and buildings looking for anything she could find, She still buys books from passing traders with any silver she earns and using these has made many helpful discovery's for her tribe.

(http://i.imgur.com/Cns3axi.jpg?1)
And now Val demands his mention, Having been the sole survivor when a maddened swap of rats fell upon his old tribe and killed all through disease and famine he was found and taken in by a larger tribe picking over the ruins of his home, Soon after determined to never let it happen again he learned all he could of plants and growing of medicine and of potions he also learned to read the words of old to make toxins and healing salves both and of manipulating the minds of others, Soon after a large raid where his evil concoctions killed the sky people preventing the loss of a single tribesmen he is haunted and refuses to ever lift a finger to harm again as it comes far too easily now, Soon he left his tribe in spite of their insistence that he saved them all and should be proud not sad and has now find a new band in desperate need of a jack of all trades and intends to use his skills to the best of his ability to preserve them.

(http://i.imgur.com/QQvAPZU.jpg?1)

Then we have Wolf, One of the most feared war chiefs in the region even by the much more advanced peoples using their thunder wands, As a boy he and his tribe were starving and freezing in the dead of winter when they found an old outpost long abandoned with massive holes and burns and blood covering all the buildings and several broken and scattered skeletons scattered around, The tribe though afraid broke into the old buildings in search of anything useful from pure desperation, What they found changed everything for them, They found a large mostly intact building and upon prying off the doors found food in strange metal jars, Food in stranger cloth packets, Moth eaten but warm winter clothing and strangest of all another large metal room lined with strange blue material none had ever seen before, As they pried the door off they found racks and racks of long strange tubes of various sizes and types and hundreds of crates of long thin brass tubes each crate larger then a muffalo, When one of the tribesmen picked up one of these tubes and pulled a strange protuberance a crack like thunder broke the silence and a huge hole appeared in the roof.

Realizing what these must be the tribe soon learned to operate and maintain them and trained the best of their children with them out of all of whome Wolf was by far the best, As he grew older he soon took the tribe by force and using the thunder sticks brought tribes one by one under his rule, As with all war lords though he was soon betrayed and ousted by one he trusted greedy for power, Stripped of all his weapons and left with only the clothing on his back he was thrust out, A few brave souls fiercely loyal to or more likely still terrified of him followed behind to help him found the tribe of Fox peak, He lives now only to kill anything that gets in his way and spends his days leading the people and honing his incredible strength and aim to a razors edge.

(http://i.imgur.com/rWgefVr.jpg?1)

And last but not least is Purple, So named due to the color of his face when he sees the sun, Preferring darkness he has spent his entire life living in deep caves carving out stone and metal for his tribe, He is not much good at anything else but few if any can match his skill with a pick and fewer still can match the speed and skill he can build, Even in the light of day let alone in the dark.


What will Fate dictate for these lost souls? only time will tell.


Now that my lengthy intro is out of the way and that i have managed to play until the midevil age where i am building out my castle now

(http://i.imgur.com/UzZgkBf.jpg)

i'm curious if anyone has anything to trade? I have steel, Mushrooms, Bananas, Healroot and Devilstrand, i also have apples, coconuts, uranium leaf, and a crate of peaches and olives left someplace as well as haygrass, I could really use some new seeds to plant, My cart is alpaca pulled and i can ship 280 materials at a time so let me know what ya want and what you got.
