Just -had- to see that while I'm eating, thanks. thanks a lot. :'(

On a related note...

Imagine how the spawn get that speed of theirs and attack while just on their hands.

Even though I'm turned...

STATUS UPDATE

I'm 2/3's of the way through the autumn playthrough. It's been pretty boring so far, save for a brief incident in which I may or may not have nearly caused the entire fortress to go up in flames. Fortunately, nothing came of it except for a small cloud of smoke engulfing the forge area. I probably shouldn't get cocky, seeing as how most !!FUN!! in DF tends to arrive towards the end of the season.

The military is now entirely-equipped except for breastplates. We could definitely stand to have more troops, but it seems that having multiple caravans be annihilated can make a fortress seem rather unattractive to potential immigrants; I'm working on that.

Okay, made it to Winter. Going to start on the writeup soon-ish.

EDIT:
Corrected the year in Part 1 of my turn.
Also, I'm going to be a diva and ask that Dwarf!Mr Frog's clandestine transmissions be added to the list of side stories in Talvi's index.

HARD - Creepy, but nice. +1 for giving your character such a solid personality, which actually fits, considering you were our spawn-killing champ in the double ambush. For a champion, anything goes. (also, did you draw that first pic? If you did, that's going in the front, no question - lol)

Ashsaber - Spawn can leap at you even when they don't have any limbs remaining. How's that for nightmare-worthy?
Mitchewawa - (see above) ;)

Mr Frog, you're doing a great job so far, especially considering how busy it is - can't wait to hear the write-up. Also, as to the sidestory, normally I'd want someone else to nominate the post, but... Seeing as you're the creator of the Spawn, I'll make an exception... >.> But, next time, see if you can persuade somebody else to nominate you. ;D lol

Weeeell...isn't so much that they can leap without legs.

It's that they can move fast AND tear off limbs without legs.

It's the mental image of them running quickly on their arms, chestmouth wide open...

...falling over due to going too fast. Dammit, stupid logic, ruining the scary.

Perhaps they use their chest teeth as little spindly legs. Like centipedes. Dwarf centipedes.

Allow me to explain.

  • The Holistic Spawn, as you see here in Figure A, has its chest cavity closed, and is missing all four limbs. This, while humorously reminiscent of a certain scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail involving a dark knight, is neither humorous, nor reminiscent. (unless you've previously been attacked, in which case you will not see Phase 2, as you will be running in fear)
  • Phase 2 involves the Holistic Spawn contorting, opening its chestmouth and coiling its body into a nearly unrecognizable state, taking advantage of the fact that it has no working blood vessels or nerves in its body that need to remain intact.
  • Phase 3 involves the Holistic Spawn launching itself through the air, like a snake striking towards its victim. It is thought to be territorial in nature, and is also believed that the Holistic Spawn believes that the entirety of the earth is its territory.
  • Phase 4 apparently involves the Holistic Spawn either massively increased in size, or hovering above the ground without a shadow. It is also speculated that the Holistic Spawn in the image might be in motion, although many have debated whether this be true.
  • Phase 5 involves the Holistic Spawn on top of you, having knocked you over, chomping and gashing at you with its chestmouth and rapidly devouring any limbs you try to push it away with. Although it cannot fit the whole of your body within its mouth, it will continue gnashing at you until you die inevitably of severe blood loss. NOTE: It is recommended that you attempt to stab the Holistic Spawn with your spear before Phase 5 is reached.

Urist McConscript slept uneaasily due to nightmares of spawn recently.

Yeah, no kidding... lol     I wish Toady would put in settings in the interactions that would allow you to give someone a memory... I want that "doesn't really care about anything anymore" tag.
