Why am I not surprised that my dwarf only lasted a second? Also, your "challenge" peregarrett is "Challange 2" set by austin.
There should be only one leader! Mwahahaha!
Some moment between hard work
We're retaking quartesr room by room, setting stone doors and hatches to every exit from it. Most problem is the horde of zombies running ewerywhere. They don't give me enough time to link main entrance bridge to mechanism, and I have to grab my ass and run to safeness of shelter. But without that bridge it's impossible to lock the courtyard. It's such a vicious circle - to reclaim the yard I have to get rid of zombies, and to get rid of zombies I have to reclaim the yard.
I found some kind of blueprint at the tower It says that "This should be build as soon as possible, by all means. Head Acrhitest of Their Mountain Majesties" with stamp of Royal Seal.
Oh. So, those &&&'s are ground, and $$$'s are floors over watchtowers? Well... what for?
And with direct access to magma sea? Are you kidding me??? I kind of know why this fort collapsed to zombie horde - I'd better turn to brainless dead too instead of making this idiotic constructions!
Shit. Anyway, I have no time to make it now, no spare hands and no resources either. First goal is - Undeads!
Also, speaking of undeads, we're swarmed by ghosts of former citizens of this town. Now there are three of them floating at our "meeting hall", and I ordered to make slabs and engrave them. The problem is that our "mason" and "engraver" never touched a chisel or any tool before, so you can imagine the great quality of their production. I hope ghosts won't mind being memorized by rought skew stone plate with crooked runes and pictures on it.
OOC: There are constant "ambushes" somewhere in the dark, and there are "Friendly elf" at the caverns. I mean, there WAS elf. Zombies aren't racists, they treat any race equally.
And there WAS berserk dwarf Pan The Champion at the old farms, who also was treated by zombies well. Anyway, I see no other way to fight them off than letting them march through atom smashers. Though it's not that cool than to fight them of in a melee charge and can be considered to be an exploit.
