If it is, that's how it is with all mobile devices.

All Im getting for half of the pics are 403s.  Might just be my phone.
It is like that on my home computer.

So what's happening now, has antlion finished his turn or is there going to be a reclaim?

Since the save is posted I guess that antilion's turn is finished.
What's the challenge?
Also, what reclaim count will this be?

anltion has finished his turn, yes.  I'm going to update the thread tomorrow.  Sorry I've been pretty swamped with stuff

ive gotten in the habit of replacing my chief medical dwarf as soon as he gains any notable skill in diagnosis.
It's really funny watching them do unnecessary surgery because of a wrong diagnosis.
the conditions were bad enough to turn a dwarf who didn't care about anything mad, that's pretty hardcore.

Also as Ifeno pointed out i did not set a challenge. so my challenge is to simply keep one dwarf alive for 1 full year if you fail. If you fail the next Dorf you have will have to kill a total of 10 undead whatever's with their bare hands

I will start tomorrow. All of my dwarves will have 1-2 points in striking, in case of emergency zombie breakin. I think, however, that everyone is missing the point, which is to get underground as soon as possible. To that end, all of my dwarves will be miners. We should find plenty of other materials in the fort, making it unimportant to pack much besides food, and not even much of that.

Sounds like a good plan. 
I'm going to hold off on asking for a dorf until there's a good chance of living for a few minutes. 
How many enemies are listed currently?

I'd suggest fighting, more general.

Miners make good fighters anyway, using a pick as a weapon uses the mining skill. Picks are about halfway between an axe and a spear in terms of damage inflicted. Mining also trains strength, toughness and such so they make a great impromptu militia.

i wonder how many more reclaim attempts we can get in before the fort falls to fps death.
Logged
Yeah.  Thus why I didn't make a trap.  In it's current state the fortress didn't need a trap, the whole damn fortress is a trap.

I'm sure hacking can resolve the problem, either way it's Aussie's turn now.
