Lasher dwarf immigrant
« on: March 06, 2012, 09:07:06 am »

Hey all-

I had a lasher dwarf arrive as an immigrant in my last fort. I was quite excited. That fort has since dwindled (I think the lasher died to a water buffalo corpse), but it occurred to me now that ... perhaps he had been a vampire?

I had not had an immigrant with foreign weapon skills arrive before. Is this unusual?

Could have been, I guess. Either way, any dwarf who knows his way around a light saber deserves an honored place in his fortress.

Absolutely! It took several years for the humans to show up so I could trade for an iron whip. And then, then came the water buffaloes...

Not common but not that unusual. I've had a couple of archers and one lasher arrive with decent skills. The lasher was able to find her weapon of choice from some fallen goblins and has already got a few kills.

Once upon a time there was a dwarf named Urist. He was kidnapped by goblins.
 After being kidnapped Urist became a citizen of the goblins.
 but then war broke out and the goblin civ was captured.
 Urist once again joined the ranks of his former civ and immigrated to a newly established fort.

 While living as a goblin he had learned the arts of lashery. A skill foreign to most dwarves.


Think something like that could of have happened?

Careful! He's probably a goblin spy in disguise! Toss him in magma and see what color the smoke is. If it's gray with black patches, he was a goblin. If it's black with gray patches he was a dwarf.

Or is it the other way around?

Let me check my notes.

Have them killed. Nothing solves a problem quite as effectively as simply having it killed.

If he's a goblin spy, execute with no mercy.
If he's a dwarf, keep him alive and throw him in your military.

...

wait a second.
