Wait for Next Version, Use current (.40.24,) or use older release (.34.11?)

Wait for the next release. I want usable mugs damn it!

We can use the current one. I like the big trees and slightly smarter dorfs.

I'll take .34.11 thanks. I want to know I'll get to kill things for sure.

Yeah, we're screwed. I'm in the middle of a double ambush atm, these things are monsters.

RAISE THE BRIDGE

I did... but three of them got in.  :( our militia barely managed to survive that, and there's still a ton of them hanging around outside.

We survived, though.
EDIT: How's our military doing?

They fled! I have no idea why! It was like they were scared or something. They went out there, fought a bit, and then fled for their lives. Only Feb and HARD seemed brave enough to stick it out to the end. Mountainhome caravan is completely gone, but I got the liason inside.

the "F.R.O.G.".

Dude. That was a turkey tied to a stick in front of the entrance.

You besmirch the noble name of the F.R.O.G., as well as the subtle science governing its workings! See, it's a turkey tied to a stick above the entrance, looking down on it through floor grates. Much less vulnerable to attack, and to date not one ambush has gotten past it.

They fled!

At first, I was all like ":D" because I thought you were talking about the Spawn. Then my reading comprehension finally kicked in.

Then I was sad.

How many are alive? How many were injured?

..... Ok I conced that part was amazing when I read in the other thread. Implement it on your turn (If we live that long.

Hmm Scared of the Spawn? I wonder why.

It may be ingenius. But it's still a fucking tukey tied to a stick.

And I am now getting anxious for update. The suspense is killing me.

You're in suspense? I'm the one who'll have to fix this motherf*cker up once Talvi's done :)) Call it karma :)

If they're monsters now, you should've seen them before I rebalanced them ;D

I'm already trying to figure out where the F.R.O.G. will be installed.

All are alive, all were injured. Except for Fischer, I accidentally locked him in the armory.

I meant of the militia. Everyone else is okay. Everybody who was in the military got injured.
Hammers? A little difference - definitely not enough to make using them primarily worth it.

I thought you meant everyone got called up. I tested those hammers in fortress mode and even the crappiest dwarves can crush bones with a depleted uranium fuck you club.

Surprise surprise, they're all but worthless against the spawn, even in the hands of a skilled dwarf. :D Yayyyyyyyy... Actually, I did see one limb get severed, and the hammer did get one kill of four. But considering the amount of body parts severed, one limb is less than 1% of the total destruction.

It doesn't help that they don't get stunned or feel pain. But they become easier to kill when they can't walk so good.

Nobody died? Wow.

EDIT: Also, Splint? Could we get a box in the OP for quotes? Because this:

Is just gold.
