The time has come for my animal-person tribes to fulfill their destiny as cheap sources of meat. New fortress, nearby lion-man tribe, 4 raiders and a couple of miners to keep the place going. Summer is here, home is a hole in the ground and the first raid is off. Stoke up the fires boys, we dine on giant tiger tonight!

--
And they're back. Nice and quick. One copper bow, one giant cheetah and a giant lion. Awesome!
Hmm...and they were spotted on the way out. This might not turn out as well as we thought.  :)

--
Trained the giant cheetah for war, assigned it to the militia commander, and it suddenly decided to eat the chief medical dwarf. Militia quickly battered it to death. Lesson learned, eat giant monsters before they eat you.

The enemy is laying siege to the fortress!

Dwarves are invading our fortress in retaliation for the daring raid we carried out last year in which we stole some iron greaves.
They're armed to the teeth. dressed in bronze and steel and ready to kill us all, leather clad rabble of bandits that we are.

Here they come, they reach the pasture, slaughter the innocent duckling which was hanging out there and like true dorfs of old they...run away. Presumably horrified to see a duckling die.
We live to raid again!

If only they had all rushed home instead of hanging out on the edge of my map. They might have noticed my raiders slip out of the back entrance and go burn down one of their hillocks. Ha ha.

I settled in a very interesting region. There was peace between all the civs in the region, but after 2 years the region where my fortress is looks like this:

The humans attacked the elves, the goblins attacked the dwarves and the humans, and for some reason now the dwarves are in war with the elves too. My fortress just got a small siege from the goblins. I was training a squad before sending them to raid, so it all happened without my interference.

You have arrived. After a journey from the lost Fortress of Cloisterfire into the forbidding wilderness beyond, your harsh trek has finally ended. Your party of seven is to make an effort as the last stand of the Waxy Mechanisms here on the Confusing Continents. There are almost no supplies left, but with stout labor comes sustenance. Armoks curse lies heavy on you, as your dwarfs can't live in the underground or eat anything grown therein. You are expecting the last remnants to join the Unbridled Horns just before winter entombs you. Though it is Spring now, there's no time to delve secure lodgings, since the Demon of Seas with it's ten thousand souls is looming from the dark fortress of Pagedhorrors. Neighter wealth nor population will call them forth, as they are determined to burn the last dwarfs here in the Prairie of Sun. A new chapter of dwarven history begins at this place, "Drakenward" Dragonguarded, ere the Goblins get mangled. Strike the earth!



After the first year three migrant waves with some of the last dwarves have arrived. The outpost liaison has joined the fort, since there is nowhere to go. Rith Dreamymansions, the sturdy speardwarf has sworn to protect his fellows and assumed the position of the king, making Erush Mightylanterns - the chief medical dwarf and talented butcher - his queen. While we prepare for the sieges ahead the dwarfs hope for contact with the last few dozens of Elves, cowering in Tailwisps their last retreat lying in the eastern woods.



I edited the raws so no civilisation will care for wealth or population size before laying siege. If they don't notice me soon I'll kindle some Goblins at the border of the dark fort. Each Goblin site on the map houses about 100 evil creatures, with my neighbors hiding >10000 behind their walls.

Turns out you can turn a forgotten beast into a husk, which makes it into a insanity-fueled engine of ultraviolence capable of killing legendary-level axedwarves in full iron with ease.

Took a legendary+5 axedwarf with an adamantine axe to actually decapitate and kill it. And this FB was made of flesh.

After 8 months of standing in a pile of bitter muck (evil rain), vomit and their own blood ( bitter muck would cause some light bleeding but wasn't lethal), the human siege will just depart without a fight, hell they didn't even try to come near my open entrance... ::)


edit: That's it, the sieger token is getting removed from now on. Only two sieges in the last two years and both where a bunch of campers just standing at the edge of the map for months.

The last finishing touch of my cistern/well setup was adding some floor grates on top of the water surface to prevent dwarfs from drowning, since I'm really paranoid. Ironically one of them constructed a floor next to a floor grate before there was another connection, causing it to instantly collapse. The resulting tsunami of a water ripple demanded four souls, leaving them to rot in the water rendering my cistern and the wells useless.
But it was a lot of fun!

Had a run of bad luck when my legendary armorer was somehow murdered, torn to pieces behind a nook within the walls of the fortress.

My first suspect was a werebeast, whom the military killed moments before. However, the only other known victim, an herbalist, was in the far south of the fortress, opposite of where the armorer was found.

The only other person nearby was an odd little girl, whom was playing a macabre game of pretend right on the corpse. Her profile and thoughts indicated she was a sociopath, unconcerned of the carnage.

Then, as some haulers finally took the armorer's remains, the true culprit was revealed: a dead tigerman, his own corpse hidden by the armorer's own. At least that dwarf went out like a champ.
