Thier heart and head aside, they're basically ambulatory sponges in many respects.

Their heart, their head and the fact that they can tear your limbs off like your joints are made out of cheesecake.

That's an oddly specific choice of food.

so these are int the spearbreaker world already? if so can you put them in somehow / have them in the next fort?

also spawn aren't THAT bad, all it takes is practice :-D

giant sponges aren't fun, you can't kill them or lop bitz of them, in other words boring :-), but they are great for training on, if you know how to breathe water, or they learn how to breathe air :-)

on a side note, hav you considered giant bronze spawn dragons? now that would be something :-D or if you are feelign really masochistc candy colossi :-D

Me, Talvieno, and Mr Frog have been making critters and weapons and essentially the premise is that Dorf!Mr Frog would become responsible for a massive technological acceleration.

Yeah, it was the first thing that came to mind that has approximately zero tensile strength.

Seriously, have you ever tried to stretch cheesecake? It does not work.

Year 205, the rule of Mitch
Chapter 10: The Great Preparation

Winter is coming. We're not even close to ready for the Great Plan; that which the voices in my head sent down from gods will make Spearbreakers head-to-waist greater then any fabled fortress of old. Deathgate, the fortress that conquered hell? Hah, a deceased relic. We will best the method of dropping a mountain on the heads of demons. Syrupleaf? Our land is even more hostile; with a sky that bleeds, the undead siege us and the Spawn are even greater.

The Plan is coming, and soon we will display the wrath of our gods, thousandfold.


12th Sandstone:

I've sent miners down to dig out our battlefield. I have not officially told anyone what I am doing, but the miners are starting to rumour.


Rodge has created an artifice bed, made from coal! Artifact, flammable rock are blessed to never stop burning if lit. How can we use this...? Or if we cannot, how cool would it be to have a set of smoke chimneys?


21st Sandstone:

Migrants! In the middle of a Spawn siege! Open the gate and run!


Luckily, some make it. The Spawn are on the other side of the fortress, killing the constantly re-animating dead.


Uhh, never mind. Send in the squads, protect the migrants! I want that high-master weaponsmith in here now!

Four(!) migrants make it in, the one caught by Spawn dodging in the right direction and escaping. The military took down the Spawn that got in, and the gates were sealed. Five outside were left for dead.


15th Timber:


Aha! Goblins! An enemy we can kill! Open the gates, it will be fun to watch a lot of things die that aren't us for a change... I do hope the goblins find and kill the necromancer too.


21st Timber:


What the hell?! A murderous ghost of one of the 'traders' killed a farmer! We must quickly memorialise this monster.

Goblins went on a massive zombie killing spree, yet failed to kill any necromancers. Still, it is nice to think that we're excited over the arrival of goblins, whilst others fear them.


2nd Moonstone:

Ah, I have come so far in only half a year. Our military is fully equipped with arms and armour, and I believe it is time to enact The Great Plan...

Addendum: If anyone else finds this journal, it means I have failed. Pass on overseership to Domas, he's a right-minded fellow. You're probably wondering what happened to me and the entire army of Spearbreakers; if I have indeed failed, I implore you not to go looking for us. We went to 'strike the earth', just as the gods have commanded me, like an ever-beating drum in my head. Use my journal as a guide, but do not follow my glory-hungry quest.

PS. I haven't been writing in great detail my last few pages; have been quite busy with the logistics of The Great Plan, along with a few trivialities whose mention will only waste both of our times.

Signed, with you in bouts of great insight, and bouts of great stupidity, Mitch.

Now I'm thoroughly intrigued as to what Mitch's scheming.  It's not magma-based, that much is certain.  I doubt it's a demon piston (tall narrow passage over multiple z-levels with a pillar of excavated rock dropping down onto them), that seems too simple and inelegant. 


What could he be planning to do?... Unless... Oh...  Oh, I think I have an idea of what's coming.  You mean to eliminate the external problem with a subterranean one, don't you, Mitch?

What has me most curious is how Mitch appears to be channelling the Master. That's it, we're all fucked.

Ooh! Mitch! Is one of the dorfs bearing my name?

He seems more hell bent on conquest than weaponization. Maybe The Master is possessing him and this is his strange mood...

I just read through the whole thread. Allow me to reiterate:

Holy shit.

I gotta get me some of this. Dorf me as Eldes, Male, obsessively military (almost as psychopathic as The Master), and sign me up for a turn. I'll need to redownload .07, but I can't quite seem to wrap my head around minecarts yet anyways.

Welcome to the fold! Honestly we're onyl keeping it on .07 because of the minecarts. And the new mining drop rates will hurt mega projects here.
