It's a quadruped made of hematite with mandibles.
It has no wings.
I doubt it can fly.

Maybe it climbed.

Cleared a depot path and had a migrant put some of the hilariously plentiful fruit tree wood to use along with the embark animals (a horse and yak; probably shoulda milked them for a little cheese first.) Happened to get an ok weaponsmith, so the miners are now scrambling around to find at least copper ore but so far all they're turning up is bauxite - useful with magma, but less so otherwise - and lignite. Granted I'm happy about the lignite, but I'd like some damned tetrahedrite at least.

I really wish I could have my herbalist gather the fruits that fall off of various fruit trees. It'd go a very long way to alleviating booze shortages (as I'm sure there's some kind of plum- and apple-based booze,) and give me a legitimate reason to not knock down everything with bark.

Maybe it climbed.

That's what I was figuring. Maybe went up a well shaft or something.

Possibly.
Anyway, I've gone from standard fort to hermit - of the two survivors, the fishery worker is the only one outside, where the brook and plants are.
Once this fort falls, I'll send an adventurer to duel the thing.

Coyote men wandered through the area. My sheep and pigs panicked but the dwarves just went about their business until the coyote men left.

Step one is complete. "The World is the same as ever" says the liaison. Exactly what was said before.

Squib and Deon are now armed and packing at least some basic chain for body protection. Hopefully I'll find some damned ore soon so they can be fully outfitted since I'm using my Heavy Armor uniform for them. Managed to buy some steel bars so they'll be due for an update in equipment soon.

Well, I found some metal. And guess what it is! Sphalerite. Militarily and debatably crafts-useless sphalerite. Tie  to build some stairs and keep going I guess.

Apparently a "Fiend of Steam," has appeared and disappeared.
Beware its seasonal sales!

Apparently the announcements don't feel any need to tell you when a dwarf has been struck down, when it's a pseudo-"hostile" dwarf left over from your previous reclaim of the site.

Left the 4 FPS site running overnight, in the morning its paused on migrant arrival a couple of months later. Check combat reports and suddenly I understand why there's a dwarf corpse in the refuse stockpile.

Two Forgotten Beasts (one flying, one not) came up through the well at the same time... and began fighting each other in the hospital.

Luckily, there weren't any injured present, so the other dwarves just watched it being (!) horrified and only two of them got caught in the crossfire (One was a green glass quadruped that "hungers for warm blood", the other was a giant hairless goat with "poisonous spittle")  Once the military got there, it was all over but the sweeping up shards of green glass and butchering the ex-goat.

The Goblin civilization which had five outposts one square away on the map seems to have been exterminated, since I have been in the fort five years now and only had the first year goblin raid... they no longer show on my "nearby civ" screens either.  Since I'm on a glacier, I seem to have escaped the kobolds as well.  My only threats are from wildlife and FBs.  Kinda boring.

This fort will probably be retired since it's .40.02 and the new version breaks saves.  Oh well, it was real  :)

I'm new to succession forts in general, yes, but do all forts designed by multiple overseers inevitably degenerate into a body-filled labyrinth of chaos and despair like this? Or is this just a Battlefailed thing?

There isn't much middle ground between killed-by-dragon and never-seen-by-dragon.

updated to 40.03, no problem for now, except that the framerate fluctuates for some unknown reason (no reports of any cave ins, only weather effects and the usual tree collapse due to mining).

the game doesnt seem to generate minerals even when i set it to everywhere, guess its something of the new version (that or its because i like to build forts in embarks with elevation of 1 or 0)

You probably need more empty barrels.

The World Without Knifebear A much safer world indeed.
regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

Oh, so it was that after all? Weird. I thought it was a glitch from the new version.

Also, a... weregoat has arrived. My military is a whopping 3 soldiers without armor. Terrific.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Multiple simultaneous Kobold ambushes. Their first encounter with my war dogs caused all fifty two of them to flee in terror, bar one, who attacked the Kobolds and caused all bar one of their kind to flee. That Kobold wrestler nearly strangled my dog to death in a brutal melee, but passed out from exhaustion at the mercy of a pissed off dog.

New version, new fort. In memory of the lizardman-triggered tantrum spiral I survived, I leave a picture of the lizard mausoleum/mass grave that I built to hold all the dead.
