Even death doesn't stop a dwarf from achieving his dreams.
« on: July 25, 2014, 03:42:09 pm »

The story so far: Last summer, a married couple migrated to my fort. One was a weaponsmith and strand extractor. I promoted his wife to militia commander.


A couple weeks later, a giant mole invaded my food stockpile. I sent the commander to beat the crap out of it, which she did. Her husband decided to get in on the fight, but the mole got a lucky chomp on his head and he bled to death. The mole got away and stole a stack of roast yak.


Nine months later:

regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

No, he was put in a coffin shortly after he died.

I guess it makes sense. Dwarves will live out their full lifespan whether it's in this world or the next, but they only cross over to bother you if they're not treated properly while chilling in the next world.

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

There are dwarves that are nothing but useless sacrifices - Miners are not one of them.

"My dear wife, I am so happy. We finally have a family, whatever it means in the given context. If I was not so slow to heal and my upper body would finally grow back, I would give you a kiss, my beloved!"

The entire content consists of senseless murder, a pile of faceless naked women and zero regard for human life in general, all in the service of the protagonist's base impulses. It is clearly a cry for help from a neglected, self absorbed and disempowered juvenile badly in need of affectionate guidance. What a sad, sad display.
