Ah, thanks. Seems like picks are second only to whips in combat by the way. And I'd assume mining also raises strenght?

All the necessary combat skills that don't involve getting injured.

So, in addition to my regular troops, I have 10 badass skullcrackers just in case.

And one armed with the bones of an infant, the purest weapon a dwarf will find.

Nope, the OP has. I'll have to settle to my gobbo bone pick ;(.

Right, right. Well, you should have a dwarf baby bone pick anyway.

I just realized that by having a swarm of children follow every Dwarf around the fortress, we can effectively create bubblewrap for the fell mood prone fortress!

No, but one of my 10+ fishery workers may have been less disturbing, and probably better for the fort. The Baby could have been a armorsmith/weaponsmith/carpenter/champion/not-evil-noble/miner/whatever. The little blue fuckers swarming my fort have no purpose and no skill except enough to give them all three fishing jobs.
Yeah, but you'd have to wait another twelve years for that. With the useless adults, a change of jobs is just a few keystrokes away.

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 was going to get wasted after donating blood today and play DF drunk, but now it's probably for the best that I got bounced for low hemoglobin, because there's no way in HFS anything I could do, even drunk, could compete with this.

Perhaps it may be wise to put such an accursed artifact to use?

Draft the deranged woman and put her into the military. Customize her equipment such that she wields her own child in battle.

Forge her into one of your greatest warriors and use her to cause absolute terror against the goblin hordes.





Also, pickaxes are probably the best melee weapon in the game that dwarves can natively make. A masterwork steel pickaxe in the hands of a legendary +5 miner is truly fearsome.
