Each player gets the fortress for a year, uploads the save file to somewhere like Megauploads, the next person then plays their year and passes it on. If a fortress is screwed completely a bit too soon, it can be reverted back to the previous save by the next person, though only by consent of the other players. It's not to be used as a savepoint, this fortress isn't going to last forever. Now, some rules:
1 - Each player has a year of the fortress
2 - Each player will have a dwarf named after them to act as mayor/manager/whatever as their avatar. People not playing can submit their names for being Dorfed, to populate the fortress. See who lives and who dies.
3 - No restarts or loading saves if you mess up. Fortunes rise and fall, and it'll only be considered if you make a monumental cock-up.
4a - Megalomania is advised.
4b - Doomsday devices encouraged.
5 - As you play, you should update the playing thread after every ingame season if possible. Including screenshots and preferably in the form of a story. For examples of how a thread should play out, see: Boatmurdered.
6 - Have fun.
If the list of players is too short, we'll just take it as a round-robin until the fortress dies. I'll give it a few days for people to sign up for playing or just as bystanders in the fortress. Anyone wanting to play, check this: Lazy Newb Pack which contains the latest release of DF, graphical tilesets and all you need.
Order of play will be chosen Sunday night GMT, from then, each player has until the end of the following sunday to complete their year. The next player should be able to download the fortress on the sunday/monday. First player chooses location.
Add your name and if you want to play or just be a dwarf. People wanting to play who are new to it can be shuffled lower down the player list to give them a chance to get acquainted with the game, as well as hopefully having the fort relatively stable and working by the time they get a turn. Players will be shuffled later to get a play order sorted. Vacationing dwarfs are first come-first served.
People playing from this forum are advised to register on FaF to contribute to the game thread, though the final saga will be posted to all participating forums.
