Nah it got out, and I was able to get some dwarfs in. I'll have to count the exact amount later. But for now we have gained some migrants and made some progress on the aquifer.

The aquifer has been broken through. Current dwarf population is ~19. With the stone I will work on a airlock.


Excellent.  If you can get some mechanisms made, you'll have most of what you need to give the fortress power and build a quaratine shower over a proper subterranean fortress entrance.

So I took a look at the current save to get a better idea of the fortress layout... No words can describe it.

Can I request dorfage?  If so, I'd like to be a siege engineer/operator named Pyro.

Here's a tip, though... Use Russian characters in your WPA5 passphrase. If your spontaneous AI is anything like my spontaneous AI (not as aggressive as yours, good conversation, but actually worse than me at chess*), it can't handle any character outside of the CODEPAGE 437 list.

*I hope. It could just be lulling me into a false sense of security.

Already? Man, this fort is really fast paced.

Requesting dorfing and a turn:

I just hope the fortress is properly-functioning by the time I get my hands on it :V  Normally, by this point, most fortresses are either fully-established and self-sustaining or dead. Horrorfailed has somehow managed to wedge itself directly in between.

So you're saying the fortress is somewhat... undead?

Not really. It's more like a halo of debris orbiting a black hole, constantly falling towards oblivion yet never quite getting there.

Falling to oblivion but not quite getting there is how orbiting works in the first place.

This fort really does sit on the event horizon of madness and catastrophe

Haven't we crossed that already, and then died, then came back to the black hole so that we could do it again, but we survived this time?

@Dinjo:

Point taken. Horrorfailed is the black hole. A writhing singularity of death and zombies so massive that nothing can escape, and FPS is lowered for miles around.

I may have accidentally let some zombies in. The militia took care of them fairly quickly but still. Whoops.

Hey, better properly-dead inside than shambling around eating migrants outside.

My example of small plan to kill few zombies.

Planning? In this fortress!? Surely you jest.

Yo Deviled, who are the dorfed, anyway?

I'm not sure who is dwarved and dead because I can't tell the old corpses from the new ones.
