So, a syndrome modded pitchblende hammer that is twice as heavy as silver, and the syndrome causes uh everything to rot REALLY slow.  I'm so liking this, especially for the tantrum spirals.

Tantrum spirals? Imagine somebody grabbing up a pitchblende warhammer and hitting somebody in the toe because they're such a bad shot. The toe rots, the foot rots, then the person has suffered major wounds and is upset so he, too, picks up a pitchblende warhammer (and this dude does have a good aim) and goes to town on everybody in the fortress, who then slowly begin to rot, get miserable and then pick up pitchblende warhammers...

Sadly it's not possible, syndromes can't be transferred through weapons. :(

Alternatively, you could have a really nice zombie mod where people who get bitten become infected and turn into zombies, and then try to survive with just the seven dwarves you start with, because migrants might be infected and not know it. Pitchblende warhammers would be fun there too.

I thought you were going to make a lovely journal entry to make us question your presence here even more Mr Frog...

Is it odd I imagined a matrix type situation with Dorf!Mr Frog facing down some nameless agents of whoever sent him and one said his name like Agent Smith does to Neo sometimes?

There should be a "partial evaporation" mechanism for minerals...

The whole "effect depends on dosage and duration of exposure" thing would probably be a pain in the backside to model, though. After all, depending on dose speed, the effects vary from

[CE_DIZZINESS] to
Code: [Select]
[CE_IMPAIR_FUNCTION:SEV:1000:PROB:100:BP:BY_CATEGORY:ALL:NERVOUS:START:10:PEAK:50:END:2000]

It'd be great if we could somehow rig up micro nukes with pitchblende. Although lingering radiation would be a small problem...

Not to spoil anything, but Talvieno, with myself as largly the guy save for the Battleyak and railgun, does infact turn the untamed wilds into radioactive hotspots resulting inv arious mutations, ranging from vampirism to super strength and a slight anger control problem.

And Sperarbreakers has had a hand in it all.

Mwuahahaha. Cough.  So, now you're recreating marvel superhero origin stories in the wastes of DF.  Have you considered what a Giant Badger Hulkpire would be like?  :o Other than absurdly awesome.  :D

If I recall right, the effects only affect humans elves dorfs and goblins, the rest being unaffected since they'll almost invariably be giant or man varients and thus basically mutants already.

I did just have the thought of making depleted uranium slugs from pitchblende for the railguns which gib the target on impact or otherwise instakill them.

Or maybe cause a slow horrible nerve tissue necrosis....

Sus - there should be, but there isn't. :( Nor any way to get weapons to evaporate, but that'd be the thing to do, make them evaporate on contact and then shoot evapobolts all over the place.

Mr Frog - lmao. That'd be exactly what it would be like. Except we'd have to massively ramp up the current zombiecount to hundreds at a time... though that shouldn't really be too difficult. Maybe a bit harsh on framerate, though.

Splint - That's Mr Frog's version. lol    He made the original, I kind of... stole the idea... and messed with it to have what I wanted - random radiation effects every world. Makes the hospital a lot more useful. lol    Oh, but in both versions, animals are affected too. So yes, you could have incredible hulkbadgers come and take your fort out by throwing your dwarves across the map (though it'd be unlikely). In Mr Frog's version, though, almost none of the radiation effects are good - they're more or less inherently bad. With mine you have a 50-50 shot of getting something good. And pretty much no chance of getting something that's all good - you might get super speed along with severe cramps. lol

@Splint:

Sorry for epically failing to produce the promised journal :-\ I've been feeling kinda emo lately, and thus have been far too busy moping around like a sloth on tranquilizers to do actually important stuff like write fanfiction of a roleplay of a computer game.


@Talvieno:

I was going to put in good mutations, but then I got sidetracked making bug-eyed ninja thorn-monkeys from hell.

This is a derail. All craftsnerdship is of the most haphazard quality. It is adorned with hanging rings of zombies and menaces with spikes of pitchblende and radiation sickness. On the item is an image of a mushroom cloud and dwarves in uranium by Sus. The dwarves are vaporizing.
