Here lies Wagon: may he rest in peace
« on: July 16, 2013, 01:22:56 am »

So here I was testing out my newly constructed bridge. I have the lever pulled to lower the bridge right as a human caravan is leaving the fort. A wagon is partially crushed and destroyed. I use this to my advantage and nab all of the crap it dropped, including precious wagon wood.

Later while testing another bridge one of my threshers is accidentally crushed. As I go to engrave a memorial slab for him I notice this...


He was a hero to his people.

Friends, family, we stand here today to mourn the loss of the dearly departed, our friend Wagon, cut down before his time. He was a good Wagon, and he carried our stuff with all the grace and dignity Armok saw fit to give any of us. He is survived by his wife, Trading Depot, and his son, Magma Forge. My his soul rest within the arms of Armok for all eternity.

I once had a wagon get stuck against a ditch outside my fort where it hanged around for a few months before EXPLODING! It was pretty cool. Got free stuff.

From memory wagons are counted as creatures but I'm surprised it showed up on engraving. I remember a thread about someone making a wagon civilization for embarking which was pretty amusing.

It isn't possible to be a werewagon :-\



Edit: Actually it sort of is. Haven't seen this before, here's an actual wagon as the player character:

Well, I then modded necromantic resurrection so that it can resurrect wagons, and removed the tag that they only leave logs.



Wagon zombies only occupy one square and shamble around happily, but if you turn them back into actual wagons, they too scuttle. I even gave wagons themselves immobility, a giant sponge's body and a zombie's tags to test it further, to no avail.

So: If you ever get a wagon ghost, it'll probably resemble a regular ghost... either that or immediately scuttle and give you some wagon ghost wood (and then come back to haunt you again, repeating the process).

Sadly, I don't think Wagon Fortress is entirely playable yet. But it is fun to note that the wagons can ride to the embark site in another wagon without scuttling just fine.
