That's really unlucky to be honest. In my experience, troglodytes are almost never hostile and seem to run away from dwarves if they pay attention at all. It might be interesting to check the combat logs to see if the troglodytes struck first or if the dwarves attacked. I've had situations where visitors have shown off how opposed to nature they are by mass attacking any bunny that enters the room, and I'm pretty sure that some dwarves will just attack for the fun of it depending on their personality.

My dwarfs attack them every time. Current it is a bit bugged. The troglodyte hangs on a wall and my dwarfs underneath him.
The troglodyte beats them until they fall down where they scramble on the ground because they are heavily wounded.
Problem: Nearly ALL my dwarfs stuck on this wall and can't climb down.

I've tried to build a ramp and a staircase up but the construction gets ever suspendet with no reason.
So all my dwarf will die when they don't climb down. The Troglodyte gets never attacked and my military can't reach him.
How I get the dwarfs away?

Mr Ettin attacked my fort. Before I could scramble a squad, Mr Ettin ambles into one of my cage traps intended for the occasional elephants. Thank you Mr Ettin, that was a very fierce threat you posed.

Mr Ettin has been transferred in his cage to the candy spire waiting room, and will act as a greeter for the clown car.

Climbing is currently pretty broken all things considered, so if I had to guess all your dwarves are holding onto this wall for dear life. The solution to this problem is to mine away the wall they are holding, but just remember that if they're too far up, they will die from ground impact or at least take some injuries.

Ettins are, in my experience, wimps. I've had minotaurs massacre early forts, cyclopsi? Cylopses? Cyclops'? destroy well built forts and Giants always give a decent fight... Ettin? I've seen one die to a set of wooden spears in a danger tavern. And this was before they were made dangerous.

I seem to be having a run of wimpy foes lately. Last few forgotten beasts have included a water blob with a poisonous bite and a feathered slug which seemed to boil itself in its own secretions.

Of course, now I've said that...

I decided to unretire one of my fortresses, and when i digged one z level below, i found a huge cavern that's filled with water, so im trying to work around that and dig to the bottom of the cave.

Got a dolomite ass with fire breath, decided he was all kinds of nope and sealed off the cavern. Watched him for a while as my dwarves went about their days, he sat peacefully beside a rodentman tribe for a while, until an anordan walked by and engaged them, then he went about slaughtering everyone in that layer before going into the areas I couldn't see myself.

I recommend sealing off every area you can't see, even if it's tedious, any forgotten beast/titan thats rocky and above and having extra stuff is all kinds of nope

My fortress is going well, with some unavoidable deaths from forgotten beast invasions, however when my elite marksdwarf ran out of ammo, she beat the forgotten beast until the rest of the militia arrived. At one point I had 2 forgotten beasts at once. I'm currently digging out a massive living space and crafts area right above the magma, because I need people.

My latest fort seems to have cave spores right from the start. I haven't breached the caverns, and yet there is cave moss and young tunnel tube growing already.

Has anyone else had this?

Edit: I just realized that I am relatively close to my previous fortress which has breached the caverns. I wonder how far spores can spread off-map. Anyone wanna do the science?

The best way to demonstrate it to him is take a save of 40 year old fortress with 150 dwarves in it on a good sized embark with a volcano that just breached the circus and install it on his gaming rig and watch it bring his rig to its knees.

You probably have a cave somewhere with access inside, and maybe an angry ettin.

I started a fort in a haunted area with an aquifer. As it turned out, the aquifer was 6-7 layers thick and it took over a year to breach. I was just finishing up when suddenly a wereyak/buffalo/something like that shows up and murders everyone.

At least zombies are no longer invincible - all my dwarves had a bunch of kills from small reanimated pieces of corpses/other zombies.

Opened up the second cavern layer and uhh... It's already flooded with lava? Why? I didn't do anything! Except drop a ton of people into the volcano but that shouldn't make the caverns flood with the stuff.
