I screwed up and waited too long before getting traps ready, so a dragon showed up and got killed before I could capture it.

Dammit. I don't even know if there is another dragon in this world for me to make the flamethrower.

The goblins have arrived... 800 of them, with 1200 trolls or beakdogs. The 110 dwarfs are locked inside and the levers controlling the gates are behind locked doors. There was another dwarf but.. "Al�th Mus�drig�th, Carpenter has created Limultongus, a dwarf bone ring!  She claims it as a family heirloom."
Good lord, how is your computer handling it?

This machine is at 0 FPS... It is a laptop with a Celeron, 32kb L1 cache, and 2 GB DDR4, running Kubuntu. I leave for hours, come back, then review the soundsense log output to see what happened.

DFhack:  Unit #13704 (cave swallow man ( )), Cave Swallow Man Spearman is dehydrated!

I thought wild animal men don't need to drink?

Merchants refused to leave and their Yaks even gave birth to a calf (marked as friendly, not merchant).

One of my farmers apparently got bit by a werelizard, he turned back into a dwarf, though. I don't think he killed anyone.

I don't know whether bugs have bugged the werebeast aggro up, but you could feed him captured gobbos for fun. Get a bitten-but-alive gobbo set up in his own room and feed him more gobbos near the end of the full moon and you could have an army of unstoppable gobbo-weres.

Strip any prisoners you throw in, by the by, because IIRC biting through cloth does not pass on the curse.

A Giant Grey Squirrel showed up and one of the bards jumped into the fray dual-wielding two of his manuscripts. Amazingly (or not), he gets the final killing blow in with one of his works on a forest retreat. This guy is going places.

Any sort of bite that draws actual blood will pass it on IIRC.

I thought the clothing needed to be destroyed first?

Any attack that let's the WB's saliva enter blood works. But if the animal in question has dull teeth and low biter Skill, clothing may stop the bite or convert it to mere bruising.
