There could be more, right now, anywhere and everywhere, stomping silently about and swinging enormous mammoth-sized warhammers with deadly quiet.

I love you.

I've yet to have a werecreature assault my fortress, so there's nothing I can really say about them, apart from them either being really weak or running away back in 0.34.11 (at least, in my experiences).

This has changed. It has changed so hard. With the new calendar and such, they stay changed long enough to cause serious harm. They don't stand up to a trained military, but they will rip apart civilians and recruits with ease. Especially since they can learn combat skills.

Yes, thank you.

I was home sick from work today, and decided to try making art with my computer for the first time outside of MSpaint. I used to "do art" in high school, but it has been a long time since high school.

Anyway, I thought you guys might be interested in stealth weremammoth art.

Thats what I thought just now too, but, you see.. We're underestimating the stealth powers of the weremammoth.. It looks like the image is missing, but the problem is that its there and we're not perceptive enough to see it :(

So.. The weremommoths are the newest king of beasts now? o.o

Update on the specific Weremammoth in question: An accident in its containment led to the deaths of 46 dwarves. It was recaptured at the gates. I am quite sure that it is now a very skilled Weremammoth in terms of combat, and has become far, far more dangerous.

I have built a special vault for it deep under the earth. Here it will stay for eternity.

Until the next civilisation to come along digs to deep and to greedily also this is a great example of the starts dwarf fortress throws up

My suggestion is that it should serve as the first representative of your fortress to greet the HFS when the time comes. Just make sure its a full moon that day.

You can ensure this by setting up a containment area for it which will be opened by a pair of drawbridges (one leading to HFS, one to the fort) only after it has transformed and a second lever has also been pulled from inside the fort (so it doesn't escape early) Prepare the link between that sealed area and the mining tunnels first, unleash the HFS with no other way into the fort but to path through the were beast containment area, and then come the full moon the were beast will transform, the pressure plate holding the bridges will drop them, and you may witness glorious battle.

I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

This is going to happen.

Also, link repaired. Whoopsie.

I did a sketch in pen, because I cannot get too sidetracked from drawing an unrelated comic.
