This is a whimsicle story
« on: September 28, 2012, 04:27:40 pm »

I had my first successful siege fought off - two at once, eight trolls, tons of hammergoblins, a couple master/lord rank goblins... and it was all thanks to my surprising stream of Great migrants. Seriously, I had Great everythings. One carpenter got to Legendary, and trading consisted of masterful spiked wooden balls. He made practically everything in the fort, and wood was abundant. So it was pretty funny when, to force goblins to walk over weapon traps over a pit of spikes by retracting the bridges, the legendary carpenter was on the bridges and fell onto the masterful spikes he himself had crafted. He dragged himself through the brass door of the spike pit, but it was too late. His neck had been punctured and he suffocated.

The fortress was later abandoned for FPS reasons - turns out my computer isn't invincible and actually can't handle a giant underground reservoir constantly being emptied into an aqueduct. It was worth it, though, to make prisoners constantly have to fight the water flow or else they'd get swept 40 z-levels into a flooded cavern pit.

Whimsicle: What's left of child's dreams after said child is brought to a terrifying glacier, and then said child's dreams(and the child itself) are utterly crushed. By a blizzard man.

... Yes, the hugs are for everyone.  No stabbing, though.  Just hugs.
