Short question: how I can set images in my posts?
thanks for answers!
[img]https://url.to.uploaded.image.png[/img]

Ex, how I just typed that:

My personal recommendation is making uploading images easy so that you can crop, upload and get link with hotkey - on linux, I use scrot passing an image to imgur's public imgur-screenshot.sh shell script (which supports crop and upload itself, I just want to pass some additional saving arguments and upload url in name for the copy on my computer). There surely is a windows variant.

As for your werebeast, the above discussion on floating buildings is highly relevant to your situation - as long as building's square has no adjacent walkable space, it cannot be targeted by building destroyers (which werebeasts are), so you should make the bed, carpenter's workshop, etc. on top of 1-tile wall with ramp access. (Not needed for track stops as they're considered traps.)

Place qsp under your carpenter's workshop with minecart delivery in when full of logs (use statue like above to prevent werebeast escape while allowing minecart to pass) and another minecart delivery out when either full of goods or every once in a while.

thanks for the amazing help!
I will resque my carpender and give him an prisoned livestyle for a month so I can see if he transform or not. So he maybe survive.

And thanks@ Fleeting Frames for the statement with images here!

Edit: I had one more wounded dwarfs.
My first step was opening my fort and send them into my hospital where I closed the entrance with a wall. My dwarfs buried the dead friends and I waited till the next fullmoon. All three dwarfs turned into werebeasts and killed each other. So my carpender is dead.
So I should try to kill the human who infected my dwarfs but I must get him out of the cage:D
Finally I tradet with the human caravan and new migrants arrive!

A visitor has arrived at our fort:  A Gorlak Dancer. 

Don't want to watch, yet can't look away...

I suggest using kilokittens. As cats are 10X the volume of kittens. That way, 50 cats would be .5 kilokittens.

100 cats would be 1 kilokitten.

When the Gorlak Dancer entered the tavern, and eventually started to Perform Dance, I was curious to see what sort of dance he was doing. However, every dwarf that was in there spontaneously took that opportunity to leave the tavern, so I was unable to view the activity.  Smart dwarves.  A couple human visitors stayed to watch, but unfortunately, it seems you can only view the activity from a fortress member. 

I imagine a conversation as the gorlak entered the fortress:

Dwarf Gateguard: *checks visitor manifest*  "A gorlak?  What are you doing here, why didn't I know about this?"
Gorlak: "What you don't know about me I could just about squeeze into the grand chasm.  Did you know I always wanted to be a dancer in Bridgeteachers?"  *does a gesture with his hands, in finest "Showgirls" fashion*  "Bet you didn't know that, did you?"

bonus points if you get the reference.

Time to explore the caverns.

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.

Hello, and welcome to the second installment of The Ignobles, an annual event where the claimants of the Baron position of some fort halfway across the world compete to explore the caverns the fastest and remain alive the longest! My name is latias1290 and I will be your host for tonight.

Earlier this morning two dwarves inherited the Baron position of, in order, the City of Granitepartnered and the Metropolis of Handlegripped. As per usual procedure, they are to prove their worth by entering and exploring the caverns below the earth at the fortress they live in. If this was not the norm, pansies from all over the world would swarm for the right to make mandates for awfully useless items and demand frivolous furnishings in their bedrooms. We can't have that! For this reason, the amount of heirs is kept in check by making them fight for their lives - and their right for the throne.

Among the loss- errr, the candidates are Zasit Alaklitast, a Talented Miner who has claimed the throne of Handlegripped. It is a shame he must go -- to Handlegripped, I mean -- since we can always use a strong mining workforce. The other heir is Ineth Isonkeskal, who has inherited Granitepartnered. Frankly, he has not been very useful so far, having aquired only Adequate Shearer and merely Dabbling Brewer. I don't think he'll make it...!

Stay tuned, our show begins in less than 15 minutes!

Edit: due to technical issues involving some Elves the show has been delayed by an hour. Stay tuned.

DAY ONE

We're back for day one! The games begin! We send our squad of 2 loyal men down the stairwell. They are to explore the first cavern level and make it out alive... what? Ineth is not coming. Where is he?



SLACKING OFF IN THE TEMPLE? I said before he's not going to make it, but I think he might just be disqualified if he does not come down to the stage right now! He will face execution by Magma, so I have sent a goblin assistant to go get him.

... I just got word that our goblin assistant has been murdered by Ineth. Ineth is also coming down as we speak. Good news! That might just change my opinion on his ambitions if he keeps up the good work.

We will now go live to our CaveCam feed to show you exactly what is happening in the caves! Should the explorers go out of view, we will have a low-resolution camera mounted to a Hungry Head that will make sure that we can have a direct image of our contestants no matter where they go.



As we can see here, the contestants have gathered at the enterance. They are about to discover the horrors that lurk the caves!



Shortly after setting foot in the caverns, our contestants find themselves surrounded by blood. Closer inspection reveals that the blood belongs to a Giant Olm! *gasp!* Clearly an intense fight has taken place here. Maybe the survivors are still lurking around here somewhere! Unfortunately, the path ahead is an underground lake, so we might never find the survivors, depending on their ability to swim. We also find the remains of a Cave Swallow, but it is unlikely that it died because of a fight with a giant olm. It is more likely that it was caught in the Cave Spider web that it is next to.



As our contestants progress through the caverns, discovering rich caches of ore and minerals as they go, they find themselves in another bloodied part of the cave. Closer inspection reveals that this blood belongs to several (that's 5 to 10) trogdolytes! Or Hungry Head Drone might not have the best sense of smell, but it has not failed us before. We will take a sample for analysis later and provide you the fine details in the discussion, tonight at 11!

But what's this?



One of our contestants, Zasit, reports being thirsty! The backstage personnel tells me that we have not provided them with any waterskins (or any equipment at all, for that matter), so we might have to cut short this episode for the dwarf to head all the way up into the fortress and take a sip. Such behavior is not the example a worthy Baron needs to be making for his subjects! If this dwarf is to be the winner of this installment of Ignobles, he must press on.

Meanwhile, if we take a look on the map of explored cavern so far, we can see that the boundaries of the fortress have been reached! It appears that Zasit got lucky and will be able to take his drink without suspending the episode. Joke's on him, though, we have sealed the entrance for the 18 hours that the dwarves are to stay in the caverns. Fortunately for him, there is water on this level of the caverns, so he will have something to drink.

I wish I could say that this has been an action-packed episode of Ignobles, but there have been no encounters! The only predators our drone has detected were two pond grabbers who were sitting in the same underwater spot the entire time. I guess that means that all our contestants will make it to the second round!

That's it for this episode of Ignobles! We will be back tomorrow at 7 PM sharp to report our contestants' progress through the second cavern layer. As always, my name is Latias1290 and I will see you tomorrow!

So, uh, I didn't realize, or rather forgot, that I settled near a necromancer's tower.

...

So the *new* 7 dwarves are currently scrambling to build the tomb level and stuff all the coffins!

At least the necromancer is de- wait shit there were two towers.
