Doesn't matter now.  They were ambush bait, or at least the thralls saw them as that.  So, no more... small, cute puppies.  I didn't even bring war dogs, I just got normal dogs to breed.  But they're all dead, along with three dwarves, including the hermit.  So, now we have Thikut Seerhelms.  Is it just me, or is that name awesome?

Excerpt from the journal of Thikut Seerhelms:
Entry 1: 16th Granite, Early Spring
That motherfucker back at the Royal Outpost Agency is going to die when I get back to the mountainhome.  He told us this was a scenic, peaceful area, but then we end up next to a horde of the living dead and one mile away from GOBLIN TERRITORY.  I managed to lock myself in a small shelter the bastards that came before us must have used, and found some useful tools.  There are a few tunnels into the lower parts of the shelter, but I'll stay up here for now.  What most concerns me is the huge Bronze creature outside.  I've heard legends of such creatures, large statues in the shape of some strange, tall, awkward looking dwarves that will rampage through fortresses, smashing dwarves until they are finally brought to a stop by dwarves whose names go down in history.

Excerpt from the journal of Thikut Seerhelms:
Entry 2: 24th Slate, Mid-Spring
I looked further into the cavern today.  At the bottom of the staircase, I caught sight of a fearsome beast with pitch black skin and huge, ebony tusks trying to break in.  It shattered a small door to the side, and although it didn't notice me, it seemed to like the place, so I'm staying up here until it leaves.  The other surviving dwarves are going to try to fight off the undead.  While I don't support this, they left me some supplies in case they don't make it back.  I think they said something about a battle axe.

Excerpt from the journal of Thikut Seerhelms:
Entry 3: 6th Malachite, Mid-Summer
I finally braved the carnage outside to find two picks and bronze battle axe waiting for me outside the door.  The others died.  Horribly, I might add.  The beast is still downstairs, waiting for me to unwittingly step into the darkness.  In other news, I have managed to get most of the old equipment I found working, so I have a working still, a mechanicism press, and some other carving tools that are nice and sharp again.  I think, after a few more preparations, I might be able to kill this sonofabitch.

This can only end violently. But then, we already knew that.

Excerpt from the journal of Nish Warmthmetal:
Entry 1: 26th Malachite, Mid-Summer
They didn't mention what was there when they said that ChanneledScarlet was a great place to move to.  When the migrant caravan gets there, we find a bunch of soulless former-dwarves, a legendary Bronze Colossus, and a herd of reindeer, of all things!  I managed to make it to an abandoned wooden cabin before those dwarven demons caught me, but the rest of my caravan wasn't so lucky.  I managed to scrounge up some bare supplies, and I might need to venture out again later.  Before I barricaded myself in, however, I did see a boarded up shelter built into the side of the mountain.  I may investigate later.

Excerpt from the journal of Thikut Seerhelms:
Entry 4: 26th Malachite, Mid-Summer
I learned how to use a pick today.  I hollowed out an area around one of the staircases for stone, but I didn't find much usable material.  Maybe about nine stones out of a fairly-sized area?  But anyway, I'm still surviving.  Also, I'm EXTREMELY glad I grabbed this journal.  Without any ghosts or others dwarves, it's probably the only thing keeping me sane.

Hey, you guys know that Bronze Colossus?  Apparently it has been smacking around all these zombies with a Wool Cap.  I don't even know.

It's a legitimate form of combat.

Anyway, I decided to add another fortress entirely.  With a female dwarf.  Here are the two profiles:

Make sure to make a danger room so you can cull her babies

Yeah, danger room is very valid in this situation.   

Kudos to you if you could do without it, but really, a dwarf's gotta find some way to event he odds.
