This is both a hilarious and legitimate question. Caravan Guards are obviously hired mercenaries not fit for memorial halls while wagons are the lifeblood of trade between the great nations.

So there is no way to produce an adventure mode wagon, able to be pushed or whatever in adventure mode?  (Am I reading this correctly?)  I've been trying to find info on self-moving wagons (or comparible hacks) to be turned into Discworld's "Luggage".  Also, an adventure mode wagon sounds pretty much like a mount except for the cosmetics.

I'd appreciate any help, if I'm reading this wrong.

Ha ha ha.
Oh god wow.

Yes, it is possible. Create a UFO flying disc, with a projectile natural syndrome attack that transforms anything that's not a UFO into a wagon.

Go to adventure mode, and science. GLORIOUS science.

Is it a crime against nature to transform creatures into wagons?

I finally got around to memorialising Wagon. Once my fort perishes I'll have to check the legends for him, as he is clearly a historical figure now.

He was also, apparently, really darn old. Dwarven Maintenance, man dwarf.

Well actually he was being sort of helpful... in a slightly deranged way. You can take my half-baked wagon stuff below and make an adventurer, then start zapping things into wagons and see what sticks. I personally feel like I've pursued this line of research enough for now after the wagon zombies.




...but having gone that far, I would say the default assumption is there is no way to prevent the scuttling.

Creatures that are already under the effect of a transformation are immune to further transformations, so wagonmancers can at least be defeated by active werebeasts.
