Items stolen from trade depot
« on: August 21, 2012, 12:40:34 pm »

So, back to DF after a while.

My first caravan arrived and i get announcements that items (in the Trade depot, from the Caravan) are stolen.

Does this mean a Kobold thieve is inside? I got two guarddogs at the entrance so a Thieve HAS to pass them and be discovered.

This leaves me the question: are my own dwarves stealing and if so, how do i prevent that from happening (or even better) find out who did it and get the dwarf judical system running :)

Wildlife can steal items from your wagon!  Lemurs, monkeys, etc

Did you get a message saying that "A Thief Has Stolen an X!" or "A Kea Has Stolen An X!"? The former probably means kobold, the latter means kea.

Well it was a kobold after all. Happened to run into the one and only armed dwarf outside the fortress on his way home (minerdwarf armed with a pick). It was over fast for the kobold.

Still begs the question: how did he pass my gard dogs at the entrance? Arent thieves always discovered when they are in the tile next to a dog?

Cheers,

1. It does not beg the question - it raises the question.
2. Not necessarily - if a unit is really good at sneaking (e.g. a Master Thief), it can evade just about anything without being detected.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.
