 I got bored and decided to make something. Kinda stupid but hey, I find it a good time killer.

The following is a yellowing note written in dwarven. Your dwarven is a little rusty, but you can sort of make it out as some kind of schedule.

I like to imagine She spent her own downtime writing hundreds of these things and making Splint sign them all :P

OFF TOPIC
I was able to get the goblin caravans and diplomats to arrive properly. Thanks to those magnificent greenskins I didn't need to breach the caverns and fight the teeming crundle hordes when a leatherworker wanted silk. Still haven't managed to get dwarves to arrive though.

So, you aren't having that problem with invasions some people noted? That when you get an invasion, all non fort member goblins instantly turn hostile?

It could be that his local goblins are a different civ and won't show up as hostile until members of their civ attack.

The goblins in question are modded to be firendly and send small caravans. The modbold menace is great and even they realize they can't win on thier own.

EDIT: Did I just miss anyone on Tinychat?

Sorry, Draconik. I wasn't really on much yesterday, but I would've tried to pop in while I was, had I known you were there.

That's a pretty grueling schedule, Splint... lol   I'd hate to be somebody in that squad.


Story post delayed. Should be out later, though.

((Ugh. Got home at 8:30, ate my food and fell asleep on my computer. Update tomorrow though.))

Today, Splint gave me the go ahead for the Stova Memorial. I originally planned on having walls viewable from the sky saying "R.I.P STOVA, BELOVED OF SPLINT" but he vetoed that, requesting just a "R.I.P STOVA."

Everything else goes well. My underlings are hard at work bringing in the armor from the goblin's christmas, and only two of the dwarves remain unhappy.

Hans was grumpy that he had to go work out in freakish whether, and Datan was very unhappy because I drafted him so that he would move from the spot next to the pool he was standing next to blinking with fatigue.

I took a break from my work to admire Rose's training regimen and her fellow bodyguards. I hear Crusher was elected mayor, and Simon Tam was furious at being replaced... but he shall be reinstated as soon as the dimwitted bodyguard-cum-mayor makes a slipup. I shall see to that.

Rose looked beautiful, as usual.

Only 20 meaty pain-feeling capable-of-dying-from-bloodloss contractors vs Fischer? Man even with thier chainweapons they were fucked if that's all they threw at her.

And I lol'd uncontrollably at "POCKET SAND!"

Good work man, good work.

And my appearance was just as hilarious as in the rough draft. Awesome as always, Talvieno :)

I honestly don't know what to say about Orodogoth, though. His speech was hilarious, yet incomprehensible at the same time. And pocket sand was hilarious >.>

Orodogoth makes me think of Dale Gribble from King of the Hill to be honest.

So, off topic, My poor human, because we've yet to become a mayoral settlement, has been hit by a barrage of diplomats one after another. The latest called us stunted... I imagine it was more or less like this:

Yes it's off topic but I feel like I can share what's happening in this settlement with you guys.

Lol, seems the game doesn't notice race when deciding how to insult you.

EDIT: Talvieno, i replied to your message.
