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

Exactly. And if you'd read one of the battles, a spawn took a pike through the face and it basically laughed at whoever did it. Before suffing a string of debilitating injuries and then a literal broken heart.

Suddenly I'm questioning my decision to run this fort. Armok protect us. BTW is spawn infection certain if bitten or do people recover? Even without the spawn infection, I'm now amazed that syrupleaf survived as long as it did.

They had the wonders of 40d to help them. And Spawn infection, if I recall right is 1 out of 5 or something like that will turn right? Asking Mr Frog would be better, as he made the raws.

IIRC, the transformation rate is 25%, unless you save and reload between the time of infection and the critical moment, in which case (due to an irritating bug) they'll always transform regardless of whether they would have had you not saved and reloaded.

And also: relax. Spearbreakers may be a hellpit, but it's not a 24/7 clusterfuck like the succession forts of lore :p  Just spend your calm periods wisely and try not to completely lose your head when the inevitable crisis situation hits and threatens to destroy the fortress and you'll be fine.

Also, stay out of the hospital.

Can I be dorfed as Kramer, a crutch walker with a military background will do.

I got fed up with my fortress, so I decided to kill everyone (abandon is for elves) with a cave-in.

OK, cave-ins were always pretty deadly, but with the new falling object damage they are downright brutal.  As far as I can make out from the logs, many people were killed by the flying bodies of other victims.  One baby's corpse ricocheted off three other people, two walls and the floor.

Anyone who needs a crutch here will probably die. The medical staff will see to that.

Yes, you're right, I suppose reading up on hellcannon (which I'll be leading in 10 years if it survives) left me a bit shellshocked.

Spearbreakers may be a hellpit, but it's not a 24/7 clusterfuck like the succession forts of lore :p
To paraphrase Splint: They had the wonders of 40d to screw them.

And at the moment, I'd say it definitely qualifies as a clusterfuck... Mitchewawa got a really nice turn. lol   Spawn ambushes actually making it into the fortress because nobody will pull levers, people dying in the hospitals because the doctors are too "ewwwwww" about everything, a well nobody can get to, fires raging down below, miasma everywhere and nobody free to clean anything up?    Oh, and Fischer may become a new child of Holistic now, after her battle with them aboveground.


Making a journal entry atm, hopefully it'll be legible. lol

Wait, there's a fire? And miasma? Oh shit-

Oh, and I don't think Fischer got bit through the adamantine, and the well is accessible, just too far away and covered in blood and vomit.
I'll start playing later today, though I did just get Infamous 2...

Weapon development has ceased for now; we can't figure out how the hell we'll be able to build a manufactury for the new designs. And as I recall a few kobolds are dead, perhaps they still have thier lockpicks on them....?
