So I went to embark...
« on: October 07, 2012, 05:30:55 pm »

In a normal (mostly) un-modded game (all I did was make microcline as a ore of copper, gold, and iron, mostly because its often the only stone I find. This is roughly twenty minutes after downloading vanilla phoebus pre-installed). Anywho to my surprise when I went to embark and to buy microcline I saw

this in the options. Though under the inorganic_stone_mineral its still undiggable   ???. In case you want to take a look at the save its https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2aebGs7iYE6aGlfOVZBWTFaRE0/edit there. When it launches it spits out a error (Duplicate Object: inorganic MICROCLINE,  had one that only was what I kept handy for replacing, but forgot to put them as the same when I merged them :-[), needless to say I found it a bit amusing for that this happened, but any ideas on what caused it?  ??? In case the civ has anything to do with this its Niraldumat Luk, "The Portentous Roughness of Insight" is the one I embarked with (pre-embark save by the way)
So after embarking, and running fixvein (as I always do, since DF doesn't seem to always have veins where it should be), ran the "reveal" option so that i can see where the first cavern is, two layers under where I embarked is

That  ???, continued to look further down and the farther I go down the more frequently it appears (as in from the one like that, to 5+ in a screen). Did I really bork the raws that much with one simple duplicate :o. I just looked in the circus and its all clay  ???

Dig in the clay. Build under hell.
I intend to, assuming that this half evil (haunted evil iirc), and half good embark doesn't prove too threatening, made there be something like 100 evil rain types so not sure if it'll end up being one that reanimates or not, and lets hope it isn't (or at least that it isn't that hazardous, ie not knock-you-unconcious-kill-and-reanimate kind of hazardous) simply for the fact that I chose to embark with 100 dwarves :P (and that would be a great deal of "fun" if anything should attack... since I neglected to bring anyone skilled in military  :-[). And forgot to ask, does anyone want me to upload this particular save? As in post embark so you can look/do whatever with it, all that's been done so far is I dug a few stairs and a room for a farm
Oh dear, there is undead rhinos attacking everyone and everything, and looks like nothings reanimated (dogs have died)... yet. You were probably right to say to run while you can  :o, and now the dogs are reanimating and killing everyone, each one that dies is rising and killing multiple times that of how many died previously... its a nightmare. Good thing i had save on embark and autobackup (so i can simply redo this and wall myself in immediately  :P)

That... that event was once mirrored once before, with a massive spire of Adamantine, but this... Some thing is wrong there. Run. Just. Run. It may only delay the inevitable, but in this case, thats all you CAN do.

Okay, now its even worse. Theres something down there. Something that can kill those with no Physical form for one to kill.


Build several forts, each at certain layers along the tube.  as a record of the civilizations destroyed by those-who-lurk-below.
So basically,
Tier 1:Human Keep(built to suppress the dark forces)
Tier 2: Ominous Catacomb dungeon fort.
Tier 3: Cave dwarvern temple/city of armok?

Sounds like duplicate draws. Lots of them, possibly, but just duplicating a single object can have massive changes. Did I tell you about the time I experimentally duplicated toads? Dwarves were replaced with humans, humans with...elves? Elves with goblins, goblins with kobolds, trolls with ogres, and so on and so forth. It was madness. Not really Sparta, though.

Its just one duplicate though, microcline ??? (spoiler is the image, in case not everyone is using the same screen size as I am)

Its there three times because I opened and closed it three times... to make sure I wasn't just seeing things :-[, and that last part came when I let some demons free, if for nothing more than a good spot to visit Hell as a adventurer ;D. I'll go upload the save from initial embark since I had autosave and such on, so you can take a look if you want :)
