Raven problem, eh? Shoot at it? That might work... Or just send Fischer after it. Given the choice between Fischer and the Grim Reaper, I think it'd choose the latter...

It's humorous, at least... "IT'S A LITTLE BIRD! IT'S GONNA KILL ME!"

this reminds me of a image..... of sims 3.... of the grim reaper.... saying hes going to eat a sandwich before dealing with a dead sim...... oh, and FIRE.

Honestly, if someone were to capture and tame a breeding pair of ravens I'd be eternally-grateful. Corvids are teh r0xx0rs.

Also, I've decided that my dorf has a soft spot for birds. Because there was a one-off gag about it a few hundred pages back, you see.

Mr Frog: "NOOO! BABY EMUS! MY ONE WEAKNESS! whosawiddlebirdie"
I'm going to guess that it's this quote... :P But that was two hundred pages ago, not one hundred. Still... Awesome. lol       Might that also explain why Mr Frog seemed a little more relaxed up on the tower?

The ravens are hard to keep in one place. :/

That one only got kept still because Longland shot it in both feet with iron bolts. Fischer must've decided it was beneath her, because she ignored the call to arms and stayed snoring.

Or did she? Perhaps she was destroying them with her sleeping mind, and when the squad reaches the ravens, nothing will be left but feathers.

Tis a good idea, but I think the closest one can get is using Dfusion to take control of other NPCs, but it's very buggy and often crashes DF, and only works in adventure mode.

S.I.R. : Something Involving Ravens

Or

C.R.O.W.: Corvid Reproductive Operating Warren

I like C.R.O.W best. Plus 1000 points if we use Runesmith to name the ravens "Huginn" and "Muninn".



I'm sorry, but I have to use DFhack to clean the map. I've got a standard stable fps of about 11 at the moment.



And what were the orders regarding the Elven Diplomat? Brutal murder at the hands of Fischer's squad? Splint kicking it to bits? It's been running around after Splint for the last ages.

Such a low FPS? Well, my computer's rather old and has a slowish processor (2.0Ghz dual core, of which DF can utilise 1Ghz.)

I used cleanmap all and my FPS shot up to 20. :D

Also, I'm writing the update up now.
