I found my fisherdwarves catching pond turtles out of the town well... not sure how to feel about that...

Also caught a giant cave swallow, another bird on this bird-laden fortress... I also have no idea what to do with broad beans, they grow on the island but apparently aren't food and can't be used in any way... considering making an item tumbler just to get use out of them...

In the meantime, my fortress' conspiracy to keep quarry bush leaves off the menu continues as the cavern we found did not have any cave moss or dwarven crop plants...

I have a law-giver human vampire diplomat running around my fortress at lightning speed with two armed guards lagging behind.

Had a mood with a gem cutter, and they made a "perfect gem," I didn't even know you could have artifact gems...

I have had the same weaponsmith create two artifact weapons. One was simply an iron spear, with no glitter to it, and the other was an iron shortsword. The shortsword had glitter, but it was iron, and at the time I was working with steel.

The poor law-giver...

"I am the law!" Law giver.

I did see my vampire civilian just have his head cut off by the militia commander once. Well... He couldn't solo the entire cavern.

WAIIIIT, dwarves can't create two artifacts in their lifetime, only one. Unless you savescummed to reroll the artifact RNG.

Pretty sure it was the same dwarf and I didn't reroll the artifact with the RNG since I didn't save-scum. He's the only dwarf I've got with any skill in weaponsmithing and the only one with the labour enabled. The iron spear buffed him to Legendary in the first place.

I'll have to double-check that later.

So I built a generation fort (although that's a bit of a misnomer since the only couple as of yet are lesbians) in order to test the activated world. Things were going fine until year 13 rolled around.

First an outpost liaison managed to find a way in despite my walled entrance, pausing the game to talk about pointless trade agreements. Then, as soon as he left, a growing tree collapsed above my dining room, creating a massive hole in the roof which could allow further intruders in. To top it all off the cave in caused my carpenter to be flung backward and land in the well where he drowned. Now his bloated corpse is stinking up the whole fort and I don't have any way to get it out or memorialize him, not to mention half the fort's on the verge of tantrumming because of him. Bloody trees, always plotting against dwarfkind.

So, I have a tomb, some contained undead, possibly some skulking necromancers, and a siege.  I think the  zombies are the lesser of the two evils, unless the necromancers is with them.  Then I'm a dumbass, and made the issue worse.

Awfully tempting . . .

-So, come trading season, the dwarves get inside and I begin to think the topside stationing was pointless this year.  Suddenly

'Curse all friends of nature!'

-Okay, cool.  Just some bowelves.  Unpause and charge.

'Curse all friends of nature!'

-Ummm okay, two squads.  Its only a few polar bears . . .

'Curse all friends of nature!'

-unpause, pull back a bit

'Curse all friends of nature!'

-Gosh, you guys are serious.  Are those elves on giant snails?

'Curse all friends of nature!'

-war ticks!  Yay!

It was a grand old brawl, and I think we had one serious casualty.  They made a point to pop up directly by our gate, which is off to the edge of the map, so it turned into a serious battle royale in about 30 seconds.

Just had my first litter of three Grizzly bear cubs after getting a male and female grizzly bear in two separate elf caravans, two gigantic male cubs were born, and the female cub is also large, but she has an undesirable trait.

I cannot allow this genetic flaw to spread through the generations, she is being sent to the butcher as we speak. I am running a Spartan style fortress, no weak links.

You'll end up with about ten of powerful male grizzlies, and still only one female grizzly if your luck stays the same

My first fort is going fine. It has 19 dwarves now, no children. Located in a gentle, peaceful jungle, we're ticking over nicely.

Who said you couldn't chain up zoms (in 34.11)?  They lie.
oh man, all the fun I've been missing out on.

Tried chaining up some wolves I caught so they could breed while my dwarves learned about training wolves, unfortunately it seems chained creatures can now attack dwarves if they're at semi-wild... not sure if that's a bug or what is supposed to happen... I stuck them back into the cage after they knocked one of my dwarves unconscious by scratching his head...
