Gonna Fly Into the Danger Zone - Terrifying area, blind
« on: May 04, 2012, 08:48:52 pm »

Welcome to ChanneledScarlet.  I have no idea how to begin this, so I'll just start with the first thing I see when I establish my fortress.  Eyeball plants and worm tendrils.  Then a Louse Zombie ATE my fisherdwarf.


Thus begins the ****ed up history of....


CHANNELEDSCARLET


I have begun tunneling out a small shelter from the acrid, fever causing slush.  Thankfully, everyone but the aforementioned fisherdwarf got inside before serious symptoms developed.  As I said, this is blind, with previous knowledge of the game.  Sort of.  So I have no idea if fevers can be bad.  Anyway, the main room is currently being built.  A large stockpile with small branching parts for workshops, and one large meeting space.  More updates later.

Sounds like you're going to have the best type of !!FUN!!. Fresh !!FUN!!, untainted by knowing what things are or why your dwarves are spraying blood everywhere!

But others might prefer to have the mess contained behind windows to avoid tracking blood all over the their nice, color coordinated floor patterns. Kind of the Ozzy Osborne vs. Martha Stewart debate.

Update: 4/5/12 : 9:35 pm

Finished the stockpiles.  In the process of retrieving the wagon's contents, a horde of zombie magpies attacked.  By the grace of Shedim, god of dreams, a rag-tag force of quickly recruited... everyone managed to dispatch them.  Also, the Fisherdwarf's HAND came back to life.  That was quickly killed too.  Now to try and dig a quick passage to seal up these corpses.  If the hand can come back to life, the rest of those things must be able to as well.


Edit: Apparently, the lady right next to the hand was incredibly pissed, and right when it came back to life, she snapped and had a tantrum.  She fucking PUNCHED the hand to death.  She fistbumped her friend's disembodied hand SO hard, it blew up.  Quite impressive.

Edit 2: And then the actual CORPSE got up, and tried to smack around our resident engraver with it's stump of an arm.  And apparently, one of those magpies bit the very same engraver, and bruised his heart.  So apparently, this one dwarf is just walking around with a huge, gaping hole in his chest, with a slightly smashed heart, and bleeding absolutely everywhere, and he is PUNCHING OUT ZOMBIES.

My current fort is in an evil biome, too.
Took me a couple tries to get past spring TBPH.

Not quite, needs to be magma and booze in there somewhere to truly sum DF up methinks.
Still, interested to hear how op's venture goes...

I never said they meant to channel the lava into the booze. They are dwarves after all.

Whelp. The good news for you is that zombies are very easy to kill.

And that's all the help I'm going to give you.

This is going to be fun.

The weredwarf Urist McUrist has come! A bearded drunkard twisted into minute form. It is crazed for booze and socks. Its unwashed beard is tangled. It needs alcohol to get through the working day and has gone without a drink for far too long. Now you will know why you fear the mines.

Et tu, Urist
