Steelhold was a game of Dwarf Fortress with a large, community-provided backstory. Laugh, cry, and be confused by the struggles of the (slightly sociopathic) dwarves as they attempt to found (and subsequently survive in) a desert penal colony divided by religion, politics and competence levels.

For those interested, the current (finished) Steelhold thread can be found here. Or, for those you you who don't want to scroll through all of that, a PDF of the story is in the works; you can download it here. At the present, the successor to Steelhold, Demongate, is currently wrapping up, with the ending coming (hopefully) soon.

The successor to the Steelhold duology can be found here.

If you want to contribute a page, go ahead! Just make sure you don't violate canon. For clarification, whatever the person taking his turn when the event occurs takes precedence over anyone's journal, and if a character is being referenced by readers, the reader who controls that character is the ultimate judge of canon. Mostly, canon is pretty self-evident for now. If you need to ask a question, check if anyone's on the Chat, which can be found at the top of the page on the navigation bar. If not, consider asking on this page's talk page.

An exemplar of how to format a person article can be found here. Make sure to categorize your articles! If you find any canon conflicts, please report them on that entry's talk page. Thank you, and happy editing!
