10th year, No goblins any more.
Maybe I should retire.

The caravan was attacked by buzzards, so I reloaded the old save.
It is quite annoying to have such accidents. What's the fun spending half an hour viewing their goods only to be ruined by wild animals?

Business as usual but a civilian was attacked by a cave hat this time before military got to it.
The bat broke his knee as well as cut it open, also cut up his left hand so he can't stand or grasp.
He got sutured up and decided he wanted to crawl 40z levels down the stairs to get booze.

Another dwarf got attacked by an olm, so the dwarf dropped what he was doing and beat the olm to death with his fists, he eventualy got tired but by then 3 other civilians joined in on he beating. The carpenter who originaly got attacked was found to have military experience as a mace dwarf, so I assigned him to my spear/auxiliary squad and gave him a silver mace

While I really like all of the new features of the most recent version, I missed my dwarves from my 34.11 fortress.  I decided to dust that one off and tinker around some more.  Right now, it's a bit overwhelming.  I'm going to be VERY careful with levers that I'm not sure are connected to what!

"is it harmful for my dwarves ? I bet it is"

Always a safe default assumption in this game  :)

Can I haz for sig plox?

LOL of course... it would be an honor.

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.

Lividgloves was besieged by 10 living humans, 39 undead, and two necromancers from the local tower.  I was staring at the boiling horde of undead, wondering wtf to do now, and then I get the message "Invaders!  Drive them away!" twice.

Turns out the two necromancers had snuck away from their legions of undead and living servants and tried to get into the fort.  They had discovered my cage traps.  I laughed so hard I thought I might hurt myself.  They were unceremoniously stripped of their belongings (because I want a slab for display SO BAD... sadly they left it at home) and then they were both sent to swim in the sweet blood of Armok.

Now I just have to figure out how to convince the huge crowds in the south that they want to path towards the fort and cage traps... currently they are just circling down there going nowhere.  It's harshing my buzz.

Pop. 185, Late Summer of 361 (Year 110)

Instead of the usual artifact gear, Sakzul Channeltree, one of the youngest members of the fortress churned out this figurine with a nice bit of history.

That one of the mentioned dwarves was named Urist only improves the artifact further.

On the item is an image of a dwarf and an elephant. The elephant is striking down the dwarf.

Midsummer in Boltclobbered, and things are going fine. My only immigrants this season were a married couple. One of my engravers fell into the stream while fishing and ended up stuck on the other side, so he climbed a tree and fell asleep there. Business as usual. Except for keas stealing all my stuff.

Hehe, yeah! As far as nobles go, I don't remember King Urist being too much of a hassle when my fort became the Mountainhome. Sadly, he died during a tantrum spiral 38 years ago :(.

Did he constantly make mandates involving daggers? The height of dwarven stereotyping would be King Urist constantly demanding daggers, imprisoning the weaponsmiths when they were not made, throwing a tantrum and causing the collapse of the fort.

I wish!  I've been really lucky when it comes to nobles and their demands.  For instance, my mayor just asks for a quern occasionally, then bans their export.

110 years, actually :).  ~Forty years ago was just when King Urist was killed during a tantrum spiral.  Relicshield was founded in 251.  King Urist died in 323, while the year is now 361.

And your fort isn't FPS-dead yet ? Wow.

I'm at 40-60 fps with a 3x3 map, depending on activity.  I just got a new PC, so I'm hoping that, along with Large Address Aware, will give me a good boost.
