    Rules :
    Show Spoiler

    - A player plays from the 1st of Aprimay to the 15th of Decembary so 1 year. If we have a lot of people in the SG, it will be only 2 quadrum rather than four (=half a year),
    - Random location, random characters,
    - No mod. Not even the one you prefer, else there will be endless discussion on which one and someone making a mistake setting the mods up and corrupting the save.
    - No loading vs bad events - Ironman this. If it ends or if you are the one who wants and manage to escape to space, then it is the end,
    - Apart from that, well, go wild.

    I'll watch this. Not play though, as I still haven't bought Rimworld. But I'll watch it nonetheless.

    The famous doctor has hitherto been too cheap to shell out dough for the game.

    Okay, I'm game. But be ready for fabulously horrible results as I wreck all the hard work of the other players

    I. Intuitu Personae, Intuitu Planetae

    So our Game Master will be Randy Savage, in second-to-last hardest difficulty setting :

    [​IMG]


    And this is our world, and where we get to start :

    [​IMG]


    The planet is mostly covered in temperate or at least acceptable climate, though not much mountains, so we were likely to have something like "Temperate Forest". In any case, this will help our two beginners Baud & Comte :).
    Someone has to give credit for the people that made that camp on the Polar Ice Sheet. Good luck guys.

    We are in the middle of the continent, and far away from those red camps, so it has to be good.


    Since the Royalty update, we get to choose 3 guys out of a roster of 7. I wondered whether I would just accept the first 3 proposed or really pick the best ones.

    The game answered for me by proposing me this ... er... person :

    [​IMG]

    17-years with no skill at anything, incapable of caring, no interest in ANYTHING, except pot and of course "everything sucks" philosophy. Your typical teenager :)

    So I picked the 3 most acceptable ones that could work as a team, and ended with :

    The Comtesse

    [​IMG]

    Rags-to-somewhat-riches story as she started as slave and is now "recruiter", and I assume in her case "recruiting" is an euphemism for buying slaves. Likes drugs, likes to shoot stuff but couldn't hit the broad side of a barn - even if she was IN the barn. That old gunshot wound ? Self-inflicted by mistake.

    Pretty good at pretending to care for people, or at stabbing them in the face, which she enjoys immensely. Her heart got replaced by a prosthesis. This was probably done to accelerate her professional career.


    The Comtesse's mother - who is younger, courtesy of hibernation - is there as well. Here is ValeVelKal :

    [​IMG]

    Why the Comtesse's mother comes from such a wealthy background while the Comtesse started her life as a slave is a story best left for another time. In any case, ValeVelKal cares about only one thing : mining. She likes the damp, dark atmosphere of the mines, and she likes neither the sun nor fire. She does not care for anything else, including her daughter.

    Ah, and she likes drugs as well, just like her daughter.

    My theory : she sold her daughter to get some pot.



    Our last survivor is Sinan "Tindrli" Sakic. Also know as The Plank but I prefered to keep the Tindrli shhort name :

    [​IMG]

    Just like everyone, he likes pot. He also likes food. And cooking. And hunting stuff so he can cook them and then eat them. He also has intellectual pursuits, probably food-theory related, and all those interests give him little time to sleep.


    No one is really good with construction, but the only character in the pool that was solid in construction was 74 years old and he had baggage...

    ...

    and saw our small "team" crashlanded on this planet :

    [​IMG]



    Overall, where we area where we landed was fairly flat without much distinguishing features :

    [​IMG]

    There was very few mountains, but still it looks like there was a reasonable amount of stuff to mine. Some patch of water here and there, nothing allowing to fortify easily.

    The only point of interest was the small stone ruin in the East :

    [​IMG]

    As you could see, the small group decided to build not too far from where they landed, as they could use the small mountains as a makeshift cheap protection from threat coming from the South and South West, and exploit it for compacted steel.

    In addition, there were some fertile territory not so far in the North East of where they started to build, and berries all around.

    [​IMG]

    So the small group of survivors decided to grab the equipment that had been jettisoned from the ship :

    [​IMG]

    Tindrli as the future hunter and best shoot took the rifle. ValeVelkal was strictly forbidden to take the pistol, so she had to default to the knife (at which she was good at). Comtesse therefore took the pistol. Since ValeVelKal would have to melee if forced into combat, she could argued she was the one who had to take the flak pants as well.


    With that, they started to build their first "home", more like 3 wooden cabins with one bed in each :

    [​IMG]

    Quickly enough, ValeVelKal had expressed interest in leveraging her skills in mining, and wanted to dig a small room in the mountain where equipment would be protected from the wind and rain.

    In any case, despite like of skill in construction, the group was quite productive and they would spend their first night in the very relative comfort of their cabins :

    [​IMG]


    I should also mention that there was a fourth survivor : Couscous, ValeVelKal's yorkshire terrier. ValeVelKal did not have the time to pay him much attention, and did not realize he had survived until the following day.
