Playing the unreleased 80.03, and on every embark I end up with the regular 7 dwarves and all, but then there's 20 other dwarves there that I can't control.  Seven of them just walk around with notepads, writing down everything my normal dwarves do, including their conversations and off-duty activities, interests, political views etc.  What is that all about?

Also, while trying to level the top of the embarks volcano, my dwarfs, using the old fear mechanic put in in 40.01, came screaming in terror to my fortresses mayor, babbling something about drone flyovers and constitutional rights.  Suited dwarfs quickly caged them and sold them to the next trade caravan.  I didn't even know the AI could do that...

On the subject of the mayor, his mandates have become quite disturbing.  How do I make citizen registration chips?  In the magma smelter maybe?

I'm totally convinced dwarven babies are born with beards. How those get braided, combed or shaved before birth is one of the arcane dwarven mysteries.

Please have some respect for that time-stream-continuum thingamajig thing, I think if you post in the past too often then you can cause the universe to collapse or something.

Someone needs to remember to tell Toady that using quantum mechanics in the game code is a bad idea...

I think the scariest part about this is I believed it until I reread the OP and saw 80.03

Can we pls not discuss time travel, I'm pretty sure the suited dwarves are keeping tabs on my internet correspondence now.  Also I can't close the game anymore, or pause it for that matter, which is like, weird.  Anyways, if the dwarves get a hold of the ability to time travel...well, ya, that might be bad.

Please don't tell me that dwarves have invented computers and programmed DF inside of DF.

I wouldn't worry about the fuss of time travel, the parallel "earths" theory should be proven around here in thirty years or so.  You know the one that has each decision cause a branching reality and any time travel merely instigates yet another branch?  Yeah, that one.

Well given that we started building computers inside of DF years ago, it's really only been a matter of time until the dwarves figured out how to utilize them for their own purposes.

Yeah? I played v 6.0. It replaces dwarves with space penguins, and the goblins are all played by Scarlett Johanssen. The game revolves around quicktime events, and teaches you about the modern plights of female potato farmers in Turkmenistan.

Ah, I remember the Dwarven Computer. Fuck.

Skynet has nothing on DF 40.01. Frankly, I'd be less horrified at living with John Connor than anyone named Urist.
