Two forgotten beasts, a theropod with webs and an an iron pick and a skinless iguana with suffocating poison dust, killed everyone in my fort but one person. The theropod chewed through my legendary military like tissue paper. Then they fought and killed each other.




The theropod got the pick earlier and was running around the cavern killing everything in sight. Also, the one remaining dwarf was a depressed legendary miner that I locked in the butcher's shop. I abandoned soon after.

This has been the most !!FUN!! I've had since my turn at Murdermachines.

Just a small question;

I had a little siege come and within it were two dwarf corpses.  They were caged up but I cannot release them into my pit of doom.  So should I just sell them to a caravan?

Build cages then hook them to levers.

New fort! Dwarves again, they named the fort 'Sacklanguage' which sucks. Oh well. I'm digging out my standard fort now.

I've been doing an above ground fort with no mining other than for slab production and I've yet had the need to get farms started since I have almost 5000 plant foods for my dwarves to eat.

Got my first vampire (for .40.x anyway... had plenty in .34)... and my second, in the same wave.  First one got sent out to fight a FB solo (she lost).

Second one has mindcontrolled everyone into making her mayor.  She's over 1000 years old.  All I need is another FB.

EDIT: She apparently went a little nuts.  Decided she was a miner all of a sudden.  Grabbed a pick and just started digging... she was in the magma before anyone could stop her.  Sad, really.  You never know when someone will just snap like that.

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.

A stupid undead eagle showed up and killed my awesome leopard while it was busy killing an elephant, and then it killed one of my caged elephants. Then it got knocked into a cage trap while my melee squad was bashing it to pieces.

I was a little worried when six undead gnomes showed up. They had only staved off one or two undead at a time until now, but they made out pretty well. Only one unlucky dwarf was injured. His finger was torn off and he lost an ear. Overall, the gnome corpses were turned to hash in record time.

Humorously, the only one who did not regard the situation as "truly horrifying" was a rather raw recruit to the marksdwarf squad. Her thought was "this cannot horrify me." Her bio says she is incredibly brave in the face of looming danger to the point of being foolish. Once she gets a bit more experience, she's getting the good equipment for sure.

The baroness is almost perfect.

Goblin siege of year 12:

When the message appeared, I sent the baroness alone to kill the goblins. I thought there were only 10 goblins. But when the noble stepped out of the hatch, bolts and arrows began to rain down upon her.
I still thought she could manage until I saw trolls in the unit list. It appeared the first 10 were just a squad of them. The old dorf soon became overexerted.

"I'm panicing! I'm panicing!"

So I sent another two to help her. Together they slaughtered all invaders with ease. No one got hurt.

Now they'll face the more difficult part: dumping all the corpses/limbs without horrifying anyone.

Playing my first fortress ever.

After the creation of the 4th artifact, the 2nd one has magically changed and now has an engraving that depicts said 4th, which didn't come to be until a year after.  8)

I really need to consider blunt weapons next time.
40 goblins and trolls means hundreds of body parts.

uh-oh, guess I should pay more attention to the personality traits of dwarves from now on. One of my hammerlords started stumbling around aimlessly. Checked her traits and she "cracks under the slightest pressure" and has been getting really freaked out over killing tons of undead stuff recently. Everyone else in her squad is ok, but her stress levels are over 300k.

Well, this happened.

When you see it, you'll shit bricks. Or dreams.

It's a barrel with a wheelbarrow in it, which has that barrel in it, which has a barrel with a wheelbarrow in it- BARJAFUADWADAWDW *shits bricks*

Umm... no.  Didn't you notice that it's a "Fat Barrel (tower-cap) <#7> Barrel (hardwood) <#2>"?

That means that it's a barrel, inside of a wheelbarrow, inside of a barrel.

See http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=63417.msg3502097#msg3502097:

Dear Urist McStockpileDrone

I just found a barrel which contained a wheelbarrow. Inside the wheelbarrow was another barrel. I don't even understand how that is possible.

If this was some sort of joke, mission accomplished. If not, please seek professional pyciatric help, and possibly a new line of work.

My captain of the guard got his upper arm bitten by a werekangaroo so he's been sealed into a private barracks to become a legendary wrestler.
My baroness committed suicide by throwing a tantrum on a bridge and deconstructing said bridge while still standing in the middle of it.
I've finally pierced the aquifer after 4 years and the dwarves will start on the carved obsidian arena as soon as they finish carving out the expansive marble hospital and smelting all this imported iron into steel with the resultant flux stone.

My fort is coming along fine. I've pierced and trapped all three caverns, begun smelting with magma, and my population is up around 70. My military is small and poorly trained and I have a baroness but not a mayor. If an FB shows up I'm not going to try to fight it. At some point I got a shitty artifact stone ring.

Also I caught some barn owl men but no women, so I can't dump them in a pit and make barn owl hatchlings. I did catch a reacher and a large rat, the reacher will be cannon fodder and the large rat will be domesticated. How can I catch large numbers of animals without lining the map's border with cage traps?
