  1. Have you ever played dwarf fortress? Dwarf fortress is made by Bay 12. In Dwarf Fortress you embark on a journey with seven dwarfs and build a fortress that may suceed or fail. You start off by having the game generate a all new world for you. Then you choose a place in the world to embark on your journey. I'm not going to go into much detail with this but if you have not heard of dwarf fortress you should try it. It does have a steep learning curve but you will quickly get a hang of it. The graphics are not much, they are ascii charcters. What your looking at right niow. But if you get a graphics tileset the graphics are much nicer: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=57557.0
    There are comprehensive tutorials for it on the wiki(list of guides): http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/v0.31:Tutorials

    Main site: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/

    I recommend that you download this modpack which has the graphics set and many other things: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=59026.0
    You should give it a try and if you have any problems you can visit the forums or look at the wiki.

    Hmmm, the maps remind me - to a degree - of the maps generated by the old Judges Guild for AD&D version1.
