My fort is only about 2 years old but the only mayor it has ever had almost constantly has the thought "He is astonished remembering being re-elected." Meanwhile, my paraplegic legendary engraver is getting used to tragedy every time he drinks; "He feels hopeless after a major injury" because the alcohol slightly injures his lungs (they turn yellow in the body parts list when I check his wounds, which seems to trigger a health check that turns up can't stand=badly injured). His best engravings are masterworks of himself engraving masterworks about chinchillas being butchered.

I...didn't even know this was possible in combat.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The million dollar question now is, can this happen to dorfs (and other sentient creatures) as well?

Gelding can happen to any mammal other than monotremes (echidna, platypus) and cetaceans (sperm whale, orca, narwhal). The only "civilized" race that cannot be gelded are kobolds because they aren't mammals.

One odd exception to the afforementioned rule regarding mammals are batmen.  Regular and giant bats have geldables, but batfolk do not.

It still annoys me that you can't geld roosters/cockerels. Capons (gelded roosters) were a popular food in medieval europe, and even in Roman times.

TIL: if you have an artifact cage, any other art (including other artifacts) that references that cage will mention what animals are currently in it, if any. dwarves are capable of creating magically self-updating art!

had mine show up as "Defectshoot the giant tortoise cage (tea wood)" on another artifact, took the tortoises out to check and it was just "Defectshoot the tea wood cage". maybe i should find something more interesting to shove in it? :-\

I think kobolds are actually mammals. They have no scales, can sweat, and have long external ears, which are all usually mammalian traits, and have hair tissue and materials and a "hair" mannerism token, even though the hair isnt actually called upon for any tissue layers or shapes/colors, so I imagine DF kobolds must have very fine, sparse full-body fuzz but no thick hair on the scalp or face like the other humanoids, or maybe only nasal/ear hairs.

Kobolds might be related to monotremes. The game doesnt mention breasts or lactation at all for civilized races, only a few domestic animals have milk, so theres no telling if kobold women have nipples/teats like placental mammals and marsupials or sweat milk from pores like monotremes. Im going with platypus lactation though, if they are a monotreme.

Echidnas, the other extant monotremes besides platypi, have a "pouch" though. apparently not a permanent pouch like marsupials, but they can carry an egg around on their belly by contacting their abdominal muscles. Both males and females. Amazing abs apparently. Could kobolds have a pouch?

This would cause the myth of male kobolds getting pregnant too.  Oddly in-line with medieval mythology afaik.

I have a goblin citizen in my settlement.  Assigned him to armor making.  Took me a while to notice that all the armor he's produced is sized for goblins.

clearly he's an agent sent to spend your resources producing equipment for his goblin buddies.

Anyone making clothing or armor will make them appropriately sized for their own species, unless you specify the size you want them to make.

I was actually super impressed when I found that out. Happened when I'd gotten a legendary human armorer by chance among the bards I'd allowed in. Set him to work making some armor since he was the best for the task at the time surprisingly enough, and out popped a human-sized steel breastplate.

Decided to give him a private workshop after that to make gear for the humans in my militia.
