Is there a word that combines comedy with tragedy and farce?
Heiterverzweiflung. Not a legit German word so much as something a friend and I made up in German class once. "Carefree despair". When life is so fucked that you can't stop laughing.

A great read as always! It's heartening to see the military finally having some effect on the zombies. ;)

But they never would have given up either. And compared to sitting around in this prison for the rest of my life? Losing is fun.

If you can get it up to your zombie trap you mention having tons of zombies in, maybe use it to clear that out a bit?

Phew, just caught up.  The story you have created is pure, distilled AWESOME.  I have never felt this much tension following a playthrough of any other game, ever.

Now, since I have caught up, I know have to put out all the questions/ideas that have occurred to me while reading...

I think Bomrek didn't announce his discovery of the candy because it's the same tube you found when you first pierced into the magma sea.  Maybe you only get 1 announcement per vein?  I think from now on, when I discover adamantine, I'm going to come up with some way to mark it so I don't inadvertently release HFS like you did...

Why are all the FBs arriving in the first cavern layer?  Is that normal behavior?

How hard would it be to re-trap a FB with a nasty extract in your FB holding pen?

How hard would it be to connect the second cavern layer to the firing range in the FB pen and welcome the demons with nasty FB venom?

My brother would like to know if you could post your save. It would be cool to look around it.

EDIT: I'll post the save at some point, but I'd like to wait to a big story moment or something to do that.

''The king is dead, long live the king'' just sounds so much creepier now.

And the surface is yours. Now to build a fortress above ground gather up 1000 pairs of discarded clothes, bones, and other assorted junk.

Fixed it for you!

Excellent!

They're nearly as bad as badgers. Build a couple of anti-buzzard SAM sites marksdwarf towers and your fortress will look like Baghdad in 2003 from all the aerial bolt spam. You waste a lot of ammo and everything is covered in unslightly exploded buzzard bits and broken bolts.
