Bear vs Dorf
« on: July 16, 2012, 07:35:44 am »

Somehow a black bear appeared in the the middle of my fortress. Don't really know how. I guess it could have wandered in from outside, but I don't see how it'd have got past the cage traps strategically placed where invaders would tend to path (but there was room for wagons to get in, so no reason in principle why the bear couldn't have got in un-trapped but must've had some weird priorities).

Anyway it (who was a gigantic muscular female) cornered Urist McSupermum who was carrying around her little baby. In a rare display of Dwarvern bravery, supermum did not use her baby as a shield but proffered her own right hand to the bear, who latched on firmly and started shaking supermum around by her right hand, while supermum punched and bit the black bear.
I was looking forward to a dead supermum (she produced too many babies anyway) and a tense battle between the rampaging black bear and my 4 marksdwarves armed with bone bolts. When the black bear dropped dead.
Yup. Supermum kicked it in the head and mashed it's brains.

I've turned the bear into soap, but what should I do to honour supermum? (she is still alive and well, and has lost the use of her right hand but is otherwise fine)

Are you sure one of your migrants wasn't a werebear that transformed and started attacking her fellows?

Maybe Supermum will be cursed as well - then you can honour her by standing her in front of a firing squad.

I had a king cobra slip into my dining hall somehow as well; it killed a couple of pets, but was punched to death by a dwarven child.

The traditional trophy for a bear is to make the pelt into a rug, isn't it? I guess if you don't want to mod there's always a skull totem.

Dig a really big hole. Fill it with breeding pairs of bears. Name the bear pit after Supermum.

At what point did the suggestion of child sacrifice become the more ethical option?

Draft her into your military.
Unless she's important, of course.
Judging by how you wanted her dead, I can assume this is not the case.

This is a side-effect of dwarven animal training (hit animal with hammer until it forgets that it hates you, then lovingly cuddle it).

I'm not your average Bay12er. I care about my drunken midgets.
