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

I have read on a forum somewhere about someone using a modded reaction to Forge Cows.
Those weren't creature-cows, those were vermin-cows. That was also pre-transformations, so it's now possible to create a syndrome that takes one creature and turns it into another. I'm not sure what kind of offspring two transformed creatures will produce though. A dwarf turned into a jabberer still gives dwarf meat when butchered, so the transformation is not complete in all cases.
They should be able to breed just fine, it's just that when a creature dies all transformations end, meaning that you get whatever butchery products that they would have given previously instead of the new ones.

It would be brutally difficult and probably won't work. In other words, it's absolutely dwarven!

Acually it was Adil. :P

That makes sense about the transformation ending, though I did end up with the amount of dwarf parts appropriated to a creature of a jabberer's size.

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

I want to build magmaships.

I did that once. Built walls and floors deconstruct when you drop them, but casted obsidian doesnt. Make a giant ship out obsidian and drop it into the magma sea. MAGMASHIP.

How'd I miss this thread? I chronicled my construction procedures; Just check out my signature.

I really gotta get around to making the next incarnation of it.
