Necromancer Eviction: All Your Tower are Belong to Urist
« on: February 21, 2012, 11:14:54 am »

I've tried collapsing necromancer towers before, and even though I got their awesome books, I thought to myself: "What a waste of a good tower and potential test subjects!" So I developed a rather simple way of getting rid of them. Attaching pumps to the side of the tower and attatching the doors with levers, I developed a way of getting rid of the tenants without destroying the property.I have a giant pit outside to catch them for later experiments. Updates are following.

I knew somebody was going to try this eventually...

Thank you everyone for the help! I've since flooded the fortress I was working on and now have a new one going up.

For a game where people calmly decend to hell to evict the current residents and do some redecorations, comment on the wallpaper etc ("blood red, it's really us"), it was pretty much a given that people wouldn't just mess with necromancers towers, but start to live there and save the residents for experimentation.

I'm going to try and see if I can freeze them in the pool.

How does one embark on a necromancer tower? I've found quite a few but have been unable to embark on them.

Use the Just Embark utility. It's awesome.

I demand a mircocline blue redecoration.

I'm not sure the necromancers appreciate the new indoor swimming pool.

Well I hope they like water slides!

The best alternative to having a functional steel industry is to have a really, really, really good hospital. And a lot of coffins.

One of my hunters started tantruming and started shooting up a necromancer. :(

How did they fit him into the syringe? Is that what kids are calling it these days?

Oh wait! You mean he perforated his career!

My bad...

Mr NecroratoHead needs to be put away in his box when you aren't playing with him. You don't want him to lose any pieces now do you?

(Quiet whispers. I am sure MrNecratoHead needs his eyeballs intact. How else can he raise his minions to unlife, if he can't see what he is zombifying? He might zombify the booze on accident. We clearly can't have that.)

OK, I have to reload the save.
There was a bit of a problem regarding flashfreezing, a ballistae, and a barrel of dwarven ale. Gonna fix it up.
