Also, Talvi just PM'd me this lovely image:



And would like y'all to kindly take note of the incredible quantity and variety of severed body parts. Also, gotta love the random butcher's shop next to the trade depot.

Fortunately, with my genius intellect, it took me only 5 seconds to figure out how to solve the problem of the stranded Spawn :D

  The final moments of Urist McGuard:
The Holistic Spawn bites Urist McGuard in the face, and the severed part sails off in an arc!

Urist McHisLifeSucks has been struck down.

That's probably painfully accurate.

I was being facetious. It's definitely one of ours. :))

* * *

  A dwarf runs across a bridge. Behind him is a sight he thought he would only ever see in his darkest nightmares.

  The dwarf is a soldier. That does not matter to him now. He had relinquished all claim to pride or courage the moment those things had appeared over the horizon. Now, all he cares about is getting safely across the drawbridge before it closes, sealing his fellow dwarves safely inside the fortress and, incidentally, sealing him outside with them. For this soldier, fighting was no longer a conceivable option -- the caravan guards had been torn to shreds, and they had the benefit of decent protective gear. All that is left is escape -- the chance to hopefully live to fight another day, as the cliche goes. He runs, trying to block out the agonized screams of the caravanners, the screeches of the thing chasing him, and the frantic beating of his own heart. At this, he fails.

  The bridge shifts sickeningly beneath the soldier's feet, and suddenly the world is upside-down. A few moments later, the soldier picks himself off the dirt, looks up, and realises that he had landed on an outcropping of some sort. His heart sinks; there doesn't seem to be any way to get down. Then, the soldier realises, hardly daring to believe it, that this meant that the things didn't have any way to get up. He sighed in relief. He was safe. The others would likely realise he was missing and send miners to burrow him back inside.

  Something screeches. The soldier turns around, his blood turning to ice. The thing is there with him. It looks at him, rage burning in its eyes. The soldier looks around himself wildly. There is no escape.

  He takes a deep breath, steels his nerves, and charges, praying his death would be quick.

  Several moments later, the Spawn stands over its fresh kill, dwarven blood dripping from the gash on its torso, and lets out a victory cry.

Oops. Looked again, and it turns out that my genius solution won't work.

Back to the drawing board.

AHHHHHH I'm about halfway through! How about I give you something to tide you over?

"The Master charged bravely into the battle, stabbing one of them through the body, then through the cheek, then through the head - and the spawn turned, spear still lodged through the skull, and bit The Master hard on the upper leg - hard enough to cause the blood to gush."

:D

I'm evil.

[Talvieno, when do you think we'll be getting that last update? You left us on quite the cliffhanger and we want to see what happened.]

He said that he just needs to do the writeup.

Let me put it flat out.
If I die, you, Mr Overseer, will die with me.

EDIT: Just an FYI, since we're officially in the same universe as Headshoots and Syrupleaf, I'd like to point out a GIGANTIC flaw in the logic. In the end of the Syrupleaf story, the world basically became an obsidian boulder in space, as everything was covered in lava. Holistic was destroyed by the god of Treachery(I think that's the name). The gods left the universe. You might want to think of a way around this.

EDIT EDIT: http://lparchive.org/Dwarf-Fortress-Syrupleaf/Update%20254/ Is the proof backing up the above paragraph.
