Wait for Next Version, Use current (.40.24,) or use older release (.34.11?)

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

I'll take .34.11 thanks. I want to know I'll get to kill things for sure.

Since the Handbook is intended as a resource for adventurers, I'm thinking each entry should have a section specifically detailing how to combat the creature in question, or at least minimise the threat they pose.

I would be happy to make some more articles if you'd like (though I'd understand if you'd rather do this on your own). I could also contribute sketches of the creatures described in each article (done in a more pencil-y style to reflect the level of tech involved; this should also shorten the amount of time I need for each sketch).

Yes, yes and yes. I actually imagined the handbook as a compilation of articles by different people, edited by one other person. Urist is really a conglomeration of many different people, at least in my mind. So feel free to write entries.

Edit: I've noticed that this thread goes quiet for a relatively long time, and then explodes with activity. Just an observation.

E2: Also, @Lolfail may I ask what the enormous barbed tongue in question was attached to? Has my foul temper inspired a new megabeast or..?

It's attached to a bird-type thing that owns pretty much everything except any megabeast. Hydrae annihilate it and rocs love to break its wings and let it drop.

Also, I was browsing through Wikipedia and I found the following lovely quote:

Quote
To see with a resolution comparable to our simple eyes, humans would require ridiculously large compound eyes, around 11 m in radius.

So I guess my telepathic planeshifting space aliens aren't actually all that realistic. Oopsies!

I have to wonder with all the new civs and creatures you've all added will dwarves even survive world gen for SBII? Actually that statement makes me wonder how many if any vanilla civs survive world gen

Great now I'm stuck thinking of how somebody can be backhanded without meaning it literally. (Yes it's going to bug me until I come up with some definition that would make that sentence make sense. Well unless I'm missing some obvious one.)

About races surviving world gen, in my test fort I have encountered:

Elves
Dwarves
Humans
Dwelves
Scythod(both hostile and not)
Holistic Spawn(definitely hostile)
Kobolds
And one other race whose name eludes me.

I have not encountered:
Parasol
Ballpoint
Seqivet
Or Manamaids

editing here because I don't want to add unneccessary fluff to the "gallery" post:
That took absolutely forever... and I'm going to have to get off again. :\ I'll get to those PMs tomorrow. Oh, and Reudh - the key didn't work, just so you know. Thanks, though. :)
