Wow, well done. How'd you come up with this?

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

You sir have given me more ideas I probably shouldn't have for Dwarf Fortress, and for that I thank you. I will be crediting you for those, and for this.

A good idea.  I won't be using this plant, but I'll be using the idea for an implementation of my own.

Can workshops give reactions? If so... neutering benches that add [STERILE] to any creature that can get hauled there (dwarves, cats, chickens, giant shaggy mountain lobsters...)

If by "reactions", you mean "interactions", and by "interactions", you actually mean "syndromes", then yeah, that's fully possible. Boiling stone.

Though it should be noted that boiling stone strategies still have pretty wonky success rates (unless I missed out on a breakthrough).

Glad you all like it! It is meant to be as much of a "template" of what can be done as it is an actual mini-mod, so please feel free to adapt the mechanics to whatever you wish.

I don't suppose these syndromes are displayed in the game somewhere? Would be neat to see who is affected and not
Look at the necromancer zombie raise interaction. You could add a flashing tile to spot the sterile dwarves:

I was seriously considering that, actually. Would people prefer that?

Due to overwhelming peer pressure from a persuasive seal, affected dwarves now flash Silphium's icon (I made it pretty infrequent so that it's not annoying). I also doubled the duration of the sterility; making it roughly last a season will make it easier to keep track of.

Hi, could I use a heavily altered version of this for my mod ?

I would like to add silphium as a trade-only plant to elves, that make dwarves sterile, start:0 and no end.

Certainly! Mess with it all you like! Credit would be handy, of course.

Ok, is added and will be released with the next version, with proper credit.

You can now buy crates of silphium (and 4 other plants) in 5*5 stacks from the elves. Thanks :)

I added your syndrome to golden salve (valley herb extract), actually giving that stuff a purpose. Thanks!
