The Hedgehog is alive and well, sitting in its cage built in front of the bridge. It could be pastured somewhere, but I'd seriously recommend against it -- as long as it's in the cage, it's practically invulnerable to all things (except fire, come to think of it).

As for the crashes, the problem may have been some arcane bug inside DF, or just competition for resources on my laptop; I've had random crashes before when I was running DF and some other programs, which is why when I start playing I keep only DF on. But since this is a work laptop, it has policies that aren't under my control; if the antivirus, for instance, decides to rise from its slumber and hog all resources for a few minutes, I can't just tell it to please fuck off. It's been a problem in other cases -- demos especially.

Hooray!  Mighty spires shall pierce the pale dead brown.

I just noticed I'm next in the turn order.  Unfortunately life is getting busy for me, thus I'd rather surrender my turn, thereby passing it to Acipenser.  I'm sorry for the short notice.

Alright, I sent a PM to Acipenser.

Sorry about the crashes StrikaAmaru, but glad to hear that its more likely your computer than the save.  I'm pretty sure I had the save crash once on me during my playthrough, which is typical for DF saves.  Let us know if you decide you'd like a turn in the future.

Fatcat__25, up for another turn? After or before me, doesn't matter.

Mobbstar, assuming Acipenser takes over your turn, would you be interested in being placed at the back of the line?  Maybe you'll have time then.

I'd be up for a turn after you. Perhaps I can build the library I had planned then.

Fort is running at 21 FPS, the ground is having a panic attack in places, and what looks like a conga line of zombified Hungry Heads has formed on (I think) Z-level 32 of the caverns.
I love dwarven status reports.

Great, I've added you to the list.

I got confirmation from Acipenser via PM that they're going to play the next turn.

Hi guys! I'm sorry for my delay in posting, real life got in the way a bit. I'll have the first half of the year posted in a few hours. Thank you for your patience.

I'm having some trouble linking the screenshots. Is there a guide for posting images on this forum?

Simply put a valid image file URI into the image tags like so:
Code: [Select]
[img]https://example.cdn/images/0123456789abcdef.png[/img]
The tricky part is uploading the images somewhere. The forum offers no upload, so you need to use an external provider. For example imgur or Discord.

Yeah, the hosting is the issue I'm having. I've never hosted an image online before. I'll see what I can do.

I use the below site.  Have to make a free account, but that actually helps with keeping things organized.

Year 5

Spring

Ah, Spring. And with it, a new year and new possibilities. We've had little need of a justice system so far, but you never know when it'll come in handy. Ether way, Iím setting one up. I have found a wonderfully useless dwarf (Medtob ZuntÓrlek) to serve as our new Captain of the Guard. She seams pretty happy with the job. I am building her office and the fortress guardís barracks down in the caverns next to the looms. That way she and her lackeys can provide some protection for our weavers while also dealing with crime. Two birds with one stone.



In other news, elves have arrived. Iíll be honest, they didnít bring much. Not even a hedgehog. I bought some hazelnuts and sent them on there way.



Isnít this a bounty! We got tame bear cubs. Three of Ďem! Oh, the horrifying things we will do to our enemies when these guys get older. I'm hoping we'll eventually be able to give each fortress guard a war bear mount. But that's in the future and we have more pressing issues at the moment.

We have a chronic housing shortage. Some of these dwarves haven't slept in a bed in nearly half a decade. I have ordered some quick housing to be constructed immediately. It will serve for now, until we can get better housing. After that, We'll turn it into a storeroom. The traffic is an issue as well. This fortress is a maze of small winding passages. In an attempt to tame the madness, I have designated a project for a large shaft to be dug, connecting the whole fort and streamlining traffic. It'll go from the surface all the way down to the looms in the caverns. Protecting it will be an issue since it allows access to the rest of the fort. I'll look into covering it with traps. Also, Medtob, our new captain of the guard, has been complaining about her dining room not being valuable enough. I told some engineers to build a screw pump in there to raise the value. It actually worked.



I had no clue we even had a dead baby. It's floating around the trade depot and scarring the bejeezus out of everyone. A memorial is being carved as we speak.



The shaft is finally complete. Traffic flows much more smoothly now. I decided to decorate the top entrance of the shaft by covering it in golden hatch covers. In addition, on the central pillar, a statue of our mayor in solid gold has been erected, so that we may always be reminded of his wise leadership. In other news, our mayor has mandated the construction of 3 more earrings.

to be continued. . .

Good job!

War bears.  What doesn't kill you makes you stronger...except Bears, they'll just kill you.  The perfect weapon to use on our enemies!

Bear cubs! Finally!

Their father is our resident war bear, and their mother is a wild grizzly bear that stumbled into one of our traps last spring. She was tamed, and chained in the grazing area. Here's to a full-blown bear cavalry!
