Yes, but the general consensus is the poem is now the canon ending. Cause it is that awesome, especially if you do it to the tune of 'Over The Misty Mountain Cold" form 'The Hobbit'.
Well, Sprin was kind of ripped apart when he ended his turn also...

So, I was brainstorming a bit for teh lol mod and I was thing of adding weapons and bolts that make the creature it killed's corpse unressurectable or maybe a syndrome that comes with some dwarfs like tortured by armok or something similar. Well, that is if I get around to learning how to mod. Mostly just putting ideas out there.

Would reactions work? I'm not very well versed in them but I do think they exist in DF that could cause it to work. Dammit, we need Talvieno!
Heh, just saw this. I suppose I've been summoned.

There isn't a way that I know of to create bolts or weapons that permakill zombies. It's potentially possible to create a reaction that releases a dust or vapor that, when inhaled, causes a creature to become unresurrectable, HOWEVER... This would only work while the creature is still alive. Zombies don't breathe.

Not sure what you mean by "Tortured by Armok", though.

Wait, we can give zombies the ability to feel emotions but we can't make them breathe? This is hilarious.

If you think about it, most of the zombie parts (hands, heads, chests, skin, hair, feathers, etc.) don't have a full respiratory system. They'd all suffocate pretty quickly if you made it so they could breathe.

So we're stuck with the sole solution of traps (which isn't even a solution)? It doesn't sound good, but this is what makes the mod ridiculous anyways.

With proper management, we shouldn't have to worry about a return of Ur's Army. Just throw corpses in magma, or some such.

You guys did fix laptops, didn't you? I'd hate to not have any ammo for them...

Also, traps can be pretty effective, particularly magma-based ones... although I suppose not against Haxxor, the way they're trapavoid. I also seem to remember flying fireball-casting creatures... Honestly, this mod is more of a challenge to defeat than the Spearbreakers mod. lol   (Maybe not Spearbreakers II, though... And definitely not the God of War mod I've been working on every now and then (that thing's crazy hard).)

Oh, and don't forget minecart traps. A nested array of rapidly-moving minecarts will totally wipe out almost EVERYTHING that moves through, even in a major siege... provided you build it correctly, and you make sure that you autoforbid EVERYTHING, both in there, and outside the fortress. Otherwise you'll hit your own dwarves.

Yes, and it's yours and BFEL's brain child! Ain't you proud?  :P

Laptops should work in the latest version but I can't guarantee them. We're going on a modding spree soon so the mod should become even harder from what I foresee to happen.

Right, I made this with the intention of having a sort of Necrothreat "song", if it can be called that. I haven't really tried this sort of thing before, and it's not too different from poetry, but what do you think? Could it pass as a song?

I saw a city burn away,
I heard its walls collapse,
Its smell was smoke and fiery sparks,
Its look was broken waste.

Oh, should our world be taken
In the flame and fire,
Recall the rules forsaken!

Just sit and see the coming fog,
Remember as it was,
Just sit and look about this place;
Forget, forget its woes.

Oh, why can I not sit and watch
A burning city die?
Do something and I will be destroyed,
I canít do nothing, not even try.

Oh, should our world be taken
In the flame and fire,
Recall the rules forsaken!

I hear them screaming out my name!
I feel the acrid wind.
I see the trees about me bend,
And feel my legs then do the same.

And all in darkness is consumed
Insatiably it is devoured;
Our lives are smoke,
Our houses card.

Oh, should our world be taken
In the flame and fire,
Recall the rules forsaken.

Oh, I hear the flames
Inside my soul,
They stay there
And burn a hole.


If the flames are going to burn
Inside the cityís dwellings,
Iíll hold my hands above it all;
Preserve the weak and save the strong.
Oh, but still I hear the flames here
Playing in their little games;
I see winds of fire infernos
Sweep past like red tornadoes.

Oh, should our world be taken
In the flame and fire,
Recall the rules forsaken
And practiced by your sire.

I think songs have more chorus and are a tad shorter. But as always, it depends on the song.

All we need now is to have somebody make a song with those lyrics and we're in the musical business.


Edit: I am sorry to Dorsidwarf and Wasara for not getting a chance at this fort. As we can see, Sprin managed to kill it off and we're now preparing for Necrothreat III. If you decide to join us there, I might give priority (Logistics!) to you.

I'm kinda asking for ideas on that actually. I want to add a syndrome or caste to the formites, make them a bit more then dwarfs by a different name.

Poor Wasara. This fort really doesn't seem to like you too much. All the more reason to continue to help beat it into submission.

Well, I tried again. Is this a more realistic song?

The hero will come in flame and fire
Amidst the ruins heíll wander;
Hear his footsteps on the ground,
They boom and then resound.
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

Oh, his feet leave prints of fire on turf
His spear is lightning truly forged;
He wields it in his iron-shod hand,
It hovers oíer the shadowed land.
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

Now hear his voice, so old and deep,
It booms in halls that long were disused.
Oh, see his figure pass by doors
Where Forumites once fought their wars.
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

Now smell the smoke that this man smells,
And see the fires ablaze with light;
Believe the things he sings about,
Of bravery, the virtues that count.
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

Again his foot strikes stone
Just like his spear once struck bone.
His feet are set upon a path,
None are safe from his wrath. Oh!
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

He sits inside the merry lighting
Of a camp fire that he has made.
He looks deep into the ruby depths,
Their ringing flame makes fiery steps.
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

He looks upon the spiral stair
And death is in his eyes;
He drops his spear into the mud
And mounts that first fire-rimmed stud.
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

The foot-falls now strike up the flame,
Erasing all his earthly pain.
He rises higher, our hero,
He vanquishes his pain, his sorrow.
Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

Our hero strides amongst the clouds,
His feet are free of sin,
He is a Forumite of Necrothreat
And onwards his path is set.
Beware his vengeance, he sings a tale
Of life, of death, of all thatís real.

Despair, all ye dead, despair and die,
Descend to hell, forever to cry.

No sweat! It's gonna be much more fun to play a fort in an earlier year, especially now that there a lava cannon of death at this forts disposal.
