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

No fort is irreparable. I mean, Hellcannon survived with ZERO dwarves, did it not?

Some kind of weird bug, either that or The Master/Mego (i'm beginning to think they're the same entity) shopped the image.

I wish those clusterfucks were in lp archrive format. it makes it much easier to read through.

There is ongoing work to make them into PDFs, though.

Tell me when they come to be, and I'll read them.

Wow, you've updated the first post already. You really don't let grass grow under your feet, do you?

I see that you've decided to avoid me potentially flooding the entire fortress, too. xD I guess a Chronicler's proper role is to chronicle the disasters, not cause them.

Speaking of which... my first engraving is currently being scanned and uploaded. Given my rampant abuse of my bandwidth limit, this may take some time, but it will appear soon.

It only grows while I'm asleep or at school. And I graduate this week so that's going out the window until fall when I start college unless I decide to take up the manager's offer at wiegles for a job.

And I'll tac you on if we make it that far (plus you'll have time to hone your skills.)

Oooh! I graduate in a month or two! Although... I'm graduating from university, not school. O.o Holy shit. I thought you were my age. xD Well there you go.

And I'll tac you on if we make it that far (plus you'll have time to hone your skills.)

Fair point there... I wonder if we will? I might have been exaggerating a little on the damage I'll do - my fortresses tend to die due to boredom 'cause nothing is happening, not because I burn it down around my dwarves' ears.

I... just don't have a lot of experience with "Holy shit there's unkillable demonic creatures pouring in through Urist's open window!"


On that bombshell, I present my first engraving!

People tend to confuse me as older than I am. Usually by about 2-4 years or so.

And I could not hold a straght face after looking at that picture. Excellent work! And they're killable. If you stab or chop them up enough.

Do they still have the vomiting weakpoint?

If so, stomachs are the best place to injure them, because they'll lose about half their ferocity spending it on vomiting up their last meals.

Otherwise, decapitation or removal of limbs is the best treatment.


I love that engraving, by the way!

Severing limbs just pisses them off. Stabbing the upper body or otherwise liberating it from the bottom or the head from its shoulders work best.

Yeah, I know they're killable. They just take a lot of it.

The best way to kill them is through judicious application of acupuncture techniques, if past experience is any guide. Or, y'know, get them injured and in the hospital.

Imagine combining the Spawn with Gizogin's CORRUPTS.

Spawn with cooled magma SKIN.

Right, time to mix things up a little! Splint, I thank your lovely phrasing for this quick little gem:
