Very cool. Sounds like the justice system will become more a necessity in the next version to accommodate drunken altercations.

As opposed to a fluke used only as a result of suicidal disappointed nobles and useful civilians angered by player ineptitude.

We should have our first adventure mode performers trying their very best to entertain the community in a few days.

Does this mean that Toady will be testing adventurer mode performers next? Or does it mean that we might see a release in the next few days?

Almost certainly the former.

Will a dwarf keep him/herself from consuming an unhealthy amount of booze?

Thanks for the answers, Toady! They inspired some more questions for me.

Quote from: thedrelle
will this mean that some dwarves will use alcohol in extremis to deal with grief? will there be booze suicide spirals now?

They don't understand cause and effect with respect to syndrome emotions, so they don't know how to self-medicate.

Will this kind of thing still be implemented in the future? I'm particularly interested in seeing it used against not just grief/trauma, but also fears and phobias. (It's not wise, but it happens.)

Quote from: Max^TM
Will barfights inspire troubles later on or is it forgive and forget type stuff for non-serious brawling?

Is it possible for dwarves of certain personality types to bond over tavern brawls, rather than have it be always solely a negative factor in their relationship?

Toady, because of the schedule conflicts you've had with Rainseeker and Captaintastic, would you ever be open to inviting other forum members to DFtalk?

I recall you saying that the new format of the podcast would follow a more question and answer style now, which is certainly fine, but I also wouldn't mind having other DF-minded individuals to ask good questions when appropriate. A lot of useful information has come out from the dialogs you've had with Rainseeker and Captain.

Oh god, adventurer performances make more sense than I was thinking at first.

Will it be possible to spread knowledge of your deeds/increase your fame through these performances? Will the success of doing so depend on your skill in the performance?

So just basic telling people will work as it does, while blowing people away with a bardic tale and dance will lead to it being spread faster/people recognizing the tale itself and not just the deed?

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

Bit of an obvious question, but will performances affect your fame, and will that mean you can get more people to follow you? Also, is fame one absolute value for each civ, or will a bard be able to get more singers than spearmen as companions?

Well if you can gain fame, then it's now the only way to do so without also being known as a killer by everyone, so there's that at least already.

Its a feature. Impregnating booze is a planned tech tree for dwarves and this is a sneak peek at it.

Rescuing people, dude. And killer doesn't mean much, nobody minds, people admire you if you kill dangerous megabeasts, even if they worshipped them. Murdering people will make you famous in a different way from this, so I wondered if there would be a third way to get famous.

It'd be hilarious to get fame from a masterful telling of a rather pedantic achievement.  Basically the beginning of stand-up comedy and/or motivational speakers.

Even more so events like the masterwork stone mugs:

This is an oak wood billboard. The inscription on the billboard reads,

Tonight, Urist "Stonecrafter-12" Roofbodice come all the way from Highanvil to perform his one-man semiautobiographical play,
"How I Mastered the Gabbro Goblet, and Other Metamorphic Merchandise".
This play refers to the creation of a masterwork gabbro mug in Highanvil by the dwarf Urist "Stonecrafter-12" Roofbodice, in the summer of 295.
