Pretty big I would imagine. Have you found one?

That sounds like a good story and a good Museum piece!

Two quests for people to do: Bring back the corpse of a sea serpent or some other monstrosity, and build and retire or abandon a waystation somewhere.

I am so sorry about Palechambers... I didn't have nearly as much time as I had hoped.

Ah, yes, Channeledpower..

That place was a complete disaster. When I realised the place had huskifying clouds I raised the drawbridge, but the cursed horse had already gotten in (The horse wasn't as fashionable back then), it proceeded to kill the rest of the fortress. I had to send in a second embark team to open up the fortress again as it had become inaccessible because of the raised bridge. They lasted just long enough to breach into the fortress..

Goodbrews is a waystation - built for weary travelers wandering west toward the north sea via the King's Boulevard.  You may enjoy the one-of-its-kind tomb of a proto-adventurer there.

We must attempt to "vince" him! (That's a word, right?)

Technically, you can still kill him by beheading him or bisecting him. Good luck.

Dishmab is implicated in the death of a fair share of our most famous heroes, so he still has reason to be nervous. Adventurers are an inventive breed after all.

And even if we can not kill him directly, we can still taunt him. He is soo slow after all.
Shoot crossbow bolts at him from a distance, and see how many can get stuck at a time.. or hurl globs of syndrome inducing goo at him, like the one that caused that nasty disease that Kaslun had.. yeah... that will teach him...

Nice turn, by the way.

As mentioned in the previous turn, the most exciting field of battle this year will be in the Arstotzkan capitol, with plenty of close-quarter fighting and siege warfare.  Arstotzka, accordingly, spent their design phase developing a high-altitude tactical bomber.

I wonder if Toady likes Monty Python?  Lots of his FB's remind me of The Black Beast of AR

I still have probably two more parts of my tale and an epilogue of sorts to finish up. At the end of my turn, Dishmab's fastest speed was 506. He got engulfed in two separate thralling clouds, getting a 60% speed reduction each time. As far as I can tell, this also means he got the strength and mass increase twice too. 506 is not very fast at all - unfortunately for everyone else, that's as fast as he needs.

Here is a picture demonstrating what happens when you shoot things at Dishmab.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

This poor goblin ambushed me and stood two squares away. He unloaded a quiver full at me. Dishmab is a legendary dodger, and every arrow missed.

I picked an arrow from the ground, threw it at him, and as he collapsed in pain, I strode over, pulled it out of his body and jammed it so hard into his head that he was thrown through the air. Dishmab can now kill most things by punching them so hard they explode.

Fortunately for anyone trying to murder him, the AI is too stupid to realize it can throw projectiles back at you. Or really do anything besides waddle towards you in the hopes of getting within melee range.

Dishmab kind of reminds me of Kore, now.
