Even with the well, somebody dehydrated. Carp.

Yes, if you build a well over a pond with a carp in it and keep using the well, eventually the carp gets dehydrated.

Have them killed. Nothing solves a problem quite as effectively as simply having it killed.

the fort hero of the year goes to helmet snake 1, who bravely perished in combat with a towering scorpion. during the fight the snake managed to wound him, injecting a fatal dosage of necrosis causing venom.

The beast is currently dying. hopfully the fort can harvest its corpse so I could make delicious beast biscuits.

RIP: helmet snake 1

medal of legendary bravery.

Funny thing is, there IS a fish of some sort in the well. I don't think it's a carp, though.

You could try killing it, but the corpse would be a problem... Maybe flush it out and refill your reservoir?

So I foolishly didn't pay attention to my proximity to the volcano shaft when designating new bedrooms.
I lost 5 miners and walled in a brewer in the resulting panic to close off a portion of the new wing. I have 4 healthy miners left and one bed-ridden (cave in accident earlier).

Right after, some invading humans arrived. So I close the gate bridge, and I haven't pierced the caverns so my livestock are all slaughtered by the invaders (again), so I have no animals left.

Right when I see the gate close, I get an anouncement. The caverns have been discovered. *facepalm*

So meanwhile, I'm trying an experiment trying to form a breeding stock from captured wild monkeys. Two of the folks who dump the monkeys into the inescapable room (That injured the bed-ridden miner from earlier) fall in themselves, so they get in a fight with the monkeys. 3/5 monkeys dead, 1 brewer dead, 1 mason/craftsdwarf still running around like a chicken with his head cut off in the monkey room. I'm not lowering the bridge to let him out, because then the monkeys would get out.

After two uneventful years of prosperity with no deaths, I have several in a row.

Set up a quantum stockpile in the center of a large room and built all the workshops around it.

My fortress has never been so efficient :D

Tried to set up a vampire well, but instead, I just ended up with an armless, lungless, vampire who's now biting a fish's face off.

Dealing with an overall decrease in FPS from 120 to ~40 or so due to forty dwarves being in the military and practicing and from a constant boom of animal births. I'm starting to have more sheep, grizzly bears, foxes, and cows than I know what to do with, and my stockpiles can't hold all of their bones, fur, and meat even if I were to slaughter them all except for two children of the proper genders to supply breeding pairs.

Meanwhile, I've been inviting the goblins to come and say "Hi!" by exporting loads of valuable goods, but I haven't been getting a single siege or ambush. Now I'm not quite sure if I embarked upon an island that just had me, the elves, and humans on it or not, but the kobolds have been coming by to say hello.

Perhaps I should just piss off the elves to give my militia some live training when going out and killing coyotes, badgers, and giant wild boar doesn't promise enough excitement.

I was just about to link my bridge to a lever T.T

Welp, time to reclaim.

Also: There were four crossbowgobbers, an axegobber, two lashgobbers and two pikegobbers. No BDs.

Its just the new siege system, where armies are out and about.  And you are weak and juicy, and goblins are jerks.  Its new Fun :P

Me?  This is an elf.  In a tree, in 34.11.  Get out the damn tree, elf, so I can kill you, so I can then kill other things, so we can stop this burgeoning tantrum wave.

Remember, its not paranoia if everything is out to get you.
