Holy shit. I wish she could be found in adventure mode just to get a LOOK at her. Battles like that, she must have some hellacious scars going on, and a mountain of bone/nail/hair jewelry.

foikin' hell.

Now we need a way to possess NPCs and play them in adventure mode.

More like a well-equipped army of 2000 every 4 years, but yeah. And then she CHOWS DOWN.

This is probably symptomatic of the problematic way DF simulates military battles. It essentially treats them as a series of duels, so an army of 2,000 won't be able to kill anything that one of those 2,000 couldn't kill individually.

The 300 Spartans would be proud.

Anyway, my goodness that is a lot of goddamn kills.

Quote from: Phantom
Unknown to most but the insane and the mystics, Tarran is actually Earth itself, as Earth is sentient like that planet in Avatar. Originally Earth used names such as Terra on the internet, but to protect it's identity it changed letters, now becoming the Tarran you know today.
Quote from: Ze Spy
Tarran has the "Tarran Bug", a bug which causes the affected character to repeatedly hit teammates while dual-wielding instead of whatever the hell he is shooting at.

Non-human settlements (including dark towers, forest retreats etc) simply don't show up in adventure mode at the moment. I think Toady hasn't got round to making them yet.

Socks inspire the same sort of emotions in dwarfs that Helen of Troy inspired in the Achaean Greeks. Although it is said that Helen's face launched a thousand ships, socks have surely launched a million ultimately-fatal Store Owned Item tasks.

Is that kill count new record? Tholtig has ONLY two-thousand three-hundred forty-one kills.

And yeah, that's pretty much the reason why Dwarf Fortress is best game ever. No other game generates worlds full of stories like that.

And I'm going to make a fortress to that save, just because I want see Gedor Puzzlesneak the Knot of Hexes in action.

I don't know how contact with goblin civs works, so you may want to embark in the bottom right section so they're the nearest goblin civ or something.

Also, FoiledFencer, that is NOT counting the 3820 named kills! Total sentient killcount is actually fifty-four thousand four hundred and forty-one. 54 451.

This is probably symptomatic of the problematic way DF simulates military battles. It essentially treats them as a series of duels, so an army of 2,000 won't be able to kill anything that one of those 2,000 couldn't kill individually.

Of course, it's also symptomatic of it being a holy shit giant elephant. ;-)
Every battle pretty much went like this:

250 years. Of course, none of those kills were before she escaped from imprisonment in 159... so she got all of those in less than 100 years.
Okay so say 90 years, assume that a DF year is 365 days, then it's 365x90 = 32850. So we divide the number of kills by the number of days 50631 and we get 1.54 approx.
There's a book title right there.

Certainly you could argue that DF is a lot like The Sims, only... you know... with more vomit and decapitation.
If you launch a wooden mine cart towards the ocean at a sufficient speed, you can have your entire dwarf sail away in an ark.

I have seen books titled "Start Your Day with Annihilation," although not in this world. This world does have a prolific llama brute author, who wrote a book "Hell Is My Life" about The Underworld... Fun!

Also that is awesome. Is it me or DF2012 has far longer kill counts than DF2010 ?
