Love the custom job for Draignean. Fishcer's, while I like the  legend reference I could care less about.

Also, I find it hilarious the Draignean and Fischer went for biting the shit out of them. Made my morning.

And really, Fischer has been the Fortress Colonel since day one. He/She is one tough bastard. A little water can't kill the almighty Colonel Fischer! (That was some damn blind luck Fischer didn't drown though.)

All that and it's still only late spring. If he doesn't do something insane Mitch might be the most productive overseers in the fort's history.

Hm, yeah, Splint; I'm thinking you should get on that.



I've been wanting to make a journal entry, but I'm getting sick of just writing vapid "Entry #{n}: Today, [name of current Overseer] [performed some sort of action]. [Passive-aggressive comment]" variants over and over.

Would it be okay for me to start following subplots (e.g. Joseph, HS-X) of some sort with my entries? Or would that be too SRS BSNS?

Anything goes my friend. We have all measure of things from stalkers to slicing dead things addiction, to an uppity Army officer and Mitch possibly hiding a case of... I can't think ogf the word.

And @ Mapleguy: Sorry about that. Do you mind being dorf'd at least?

Okay, any requests for next turn? I know I have to dwarf Reudh, Aira and possibly Mapleguy, road the dirt layers, add a moratorium, fix the up the spike-traps and the equipment some more. Anyone got any other ideas?

Fischer leads the Spawn away from the fortress, he seems to be running away. Strange. Also, I can conform that Spawn are immune to black mamba bites, as the Master Thief Spawn is not keeling over and dying from the sloth bear/black mamba attack.
The sloth bears and black mambas are intended to be used against the goblins and barbarians, not Spawn, goddamnit!  >:(
Those, the mambas should be able to one hit KO.

Certainly you could argue that DF is a lot like The Sims, only... you know... with more vomit and decapitation.
If you launch a wooden mine cart towards the ocean at a sufficient speed, you can have your entire dwarf sail away in an ark.

From what I understand, these spawn don't bleed, nor do they have a brain to destroy.

Yep.

They're just about invulnerable to anything short of having their heads ripped off.

Decapitation, bisection, and heart damage. Anything else will just piss them off.

Stabbing through the head probably works, are they no pain?

The pikes can cripple them, and a well aimed stab into the upper body tends to bruise the heart, causing instant death. besides, axes and hammers would be too easy to kill them with.

@ Stormtemplar They don't breathe, feel pain, or damn near anything that would ordinarily hurt most living things.

Bisection kills them for obvious reason: Ebntire nervous system disrupted and severed, resulting in a, for all intents, dead spawn.

Decapitaction renders them litarally blind and equally useless to the she-beast. magic heart turns off.

Heart damage: Thier heart is made of obsidian, which breaks and flakes easily, and is what makes them go. that get's damaged and it may as well be having a bolt or pike through the brain of a normal critter.

But a pike through the head kills them? Or do they not have a brain? Darn these things are scary.

They do have brains, but they are completely-vestigial (their hearts get the [THOUGHT] token). Damaging their brains does exactly nothing.
