I mean if it were going to do anything, then it would make any dwarf within it's field of activity be... really giving and kind?

Basically it would turn your dwarves into anti-dwarves, and whenever they interacted with a dwarf, they'd both be annihilated in a blazing ball of magma.

Better to kill it quickly.

I mean, it couldn't give you coal or something like that. You know the DF community, they'd exploit anything the Spirit of Christmas gave them.

I know exactly which dorfs I'd assign to demonstrating appreciation of someone gave my current fort some gorram coal.

Sadly, the spirit of the holidays is dead now. I sent some marksdwarves to take it out from behind my fortifications, but before any of them could fire a killing shot, a human visitor managed to kill it with a spear thrust to the heart. I made an exception to my "no non-dwarven mercenaries" policy for that human.

So I hope, that the tower doesn't send zombies. Its a bit in distance, but you never know :)
A hope will not stop zombies! prepare! Get a door at least.

I find it more than mildly disconcerting that every.single.dwarf.child worships Ritas, Goddess of the Night.

But what's more confusing to me is that it's my Fertility god, not the god of the night, that is the one cursing people with lycanthropy and vampirism throughout history.

In fact, the Fertility God is the only one who seems to have any kind of history.

Dwarven gods usually don't have histories, because dwarves don't build temples for people to profane. This is a rare case of humans adopting a dwarven god. They built a temple to him and now he can curse those that profane it.

Actually, it seems that Kenom is a human deity worshipped by The Mechanical Confederacies, and four of the dwarven children in my fort.

I hadn't realized that there was any kind of profaning that was involved. Thanks for the info.

Yowza. Had to look to see what you meant. I've gone avatar-blind, it seems.

Today, I decided to build a pump stack from the aquifier up to the murky pools on the surface that always dry up by early spring.

For reasons beyond explanation, I can NEVER remember how to build a pump stack properly, even with the wiki on and everything.

I haven't even managed to figure it out in the first place, even with the wiki on and everything so...

Once you've done it a few times it becomes almost muscle memory. Trying to get it to pump again when half of the stack randomly collapses after you've rebuilt it, however, is another story.

Huh, haven't ever seen it in reverse. And you're welcome. All this info comes from lots and lots of history-diving in Legends Mode.

Was doing some decentralized hospitalization tests with minecarts and found an amusing diagnosis



"You're drunk, test subject."
"Well, that explains the cart accident."



Test subject shows sign of insanity.
