This thread is why I love dwarf fortress. We start at engravings of wagons and end up using necromancy to raise them from the dead, and were-wagons.

Most people's relationship with Dwarf Fortress is akin to Stockholm Syndrome.

Can you cage a wagon before it scuttles?

The military is all gathered in one huge mass on top of the ramp to the mountaintop, where the entrance is. Apparently they spend their time taking potshots at owls, pushing babies off the ledge, and giggling.

We can all learn something from Wagon. He was the greatest of all.

Using a DFHack script that allows me to attempt to cage any creature, wagons auto-scuttle when you try to have them caged. However, I have been able to cage ghosts with the script.

Can you do this with cage traps?
Because then DF's finally managed to achieve creating the ghostbusters universe.

"Complete protonic reversal?"

Hmm............

I seem to recall a self-destructing fire mage invader once being mentioned on the forum. (With pictures!) Essentially the result of adding fireball casting as a learnable secret, the wizard initiated a massive fireball attack when cornered, and exploded himself spectacularly in a 10x10 ball of smoke.

Failing that-- what happens when you duplicate "iron" in the material raws.

While we wait for a FB composed of a chestnut wagon (beware its transportation capabilities) I have this to say:

Best.

Why do they keep scuttling? I see wagons moving around freely all the time when traders come to my depot.

They're pulled by draft animals, they don't move under their own power. Wagons encountered in adventure mode are likewise always deconstructed, while the merchants and animals will typically be alive and enjoy their new duds (every caravan member gets fresh clothes upon being loaded as village population in adventure mode. Especially the animals).

I must say, the entire wagon embark party falling apart upon unpausing and the were-wagon collapsing with the message 'you have been scuttled' is priceless.

I personally admire the consistence there. The game actually has a first-person message about being scuttled, just in case you should happen to be playing as a wagon. Comprehensive.

Messing around with magma for the first time.  Still haven't produced a !!dorf!!, but I've discovered the wonders of not having to worry about fuel, i.e. SMELT EVERYTHING IN SIGHT.  HEY URIST, BRING ME THAT KITTEN, LET'S SEE IF WE CAN SMELT THAT TOO.

Godspeed, you magnificent bastard. May whatever comes next find you favorably. May it's roads be smooth and it's storms few.

Coldmonkey: "The idea that having flaming tools and introducing them to the intimate workings of someone you don't get along with is much too human for these forums. I mean, it's not really that hard, is it? Anyone can wield a torch, it doesn't prove anything. Wearing flaming clothes on the other hand, or better yet, wearing nothing at all and being on fire... that is the essence of dwarfish behavior."
