Hmmm... Probably a fan of whips too. For both threshing and fetishes! Now I'm picturing a shirtless dwarf in a broad hat and leather pants smiling with a piece of wheat in his mouth and a whip in hand...

I'm not a parent so I can't be sure, but I think DF may have a surprisingly realistic model of children. :P The two-year-olds steadfastly refuse to get properly dressed (they all put on socks and either pants or a shirt, none put on all three items despite plenty to go around), and the adolescents gratuitously leave their old clothing lying on their beds rather than putting it away in their cabinets...

So, very little progress this weekend. The marksdwarves on duty have decided they can't be bothered to pick up bolts from the stockpiles anymore, so they're just standing up there in the tower watching the zombies run back and forth (giant skunk either died in such a way that it doesn't appear on the units list, or sensibly left the map; now the zombies are chasing a giant hamster). That infuriates me, so I exited the game. Probably didn't help that it took three tries to get the entrance drawbridge to the trap corridor under construction to actually work. I keep forgetting that the raise direction needs to be set at the beginning, not when it's linked to a lever. Argh, the UI in this game...  :(

Gembish there in the previous post is certainly an interesting deity. :) I should look at the pantheon my idiots worship; I made them a nondenominational temple when I realized they care about temples now, and completely forgot about it after that.

Started a new embark to check out the terrain with a volcano that was at the edge of a temperate freshwater lake, and the volcano is below the water level. As soon as the game started, giant clouds of steam began billowing out as the water poured in. After a short while everything settled down and the volcano is longer visible, having been covered over by the lake with a fresh obsidian lay cap over the top.

First time I've seen something like that, was pretty interesting. Too bad there is no flux nearby.

My fortress was attacked by a Weregila Monster.  It killed several dwarves, and infected two with Weregila Monsterism.  As it turned out, the two were husband and wife! So naturally when I walled them up in quarantine, I put them together.  Unfortunately, the wife killed the husband the first time they transformed.  I figured her story was pretty much over, and that I'd eventually set up a system for dropping prisoners into her chamber.

That happened on the 19th of Hematite (June).  Much to my surprise, the wife gave birth to a baby three months later, in Limestone (September).  (I didn't even know that was possible - I imagine there's probably been !SCIENCE! done on the subject).  Four days later, she transformed, and immediately killed it.

I've never heard of river sources overflowing. Didn't even realize it was possible. Are they just failing to stop filling, or is the water somehow flowing downhill? If your site's got an aquifer, you could try draining the overflow into that.

Ever since my last coastal embark, I've been curious to see if I could use waves and floor grates to create an easy mass mist generator, so I don't think I could resist another ocean embark, despite the reclaim issues.


On an unrelated note, in my current fortress I found out that the Red Sand tiles created by the tree collapse aren't located on a constructed floor but on top of the tree itself!. It seems that even though the game allowed me to designate constructions in the same space as tree branches, those constructions cannot actually be built. But by attempting to build floors between the trunk and upper branches of a tree, it looks like I caused the upper branches to collapse, creating a cloud of red sand. Normally this sand would act as a contaminant rather than creating a soil layer, but for some reason it works on the top of a tree.

There was recently another collapse at the sandy tree tiles. I suspect that the game is trying to make the tree grow, but either the sand layer on top or the surrounding floors interfere with it, causing them to collapse again. Fortunately, it didn't damage anything. I'll have to test and see if this is reproducible. SCIENCE!!

Edit: Can confirm, totally reproducible! With the correct application of dwarven SCIENCE!!, sand really does grow on trees!
Have you made a bug report?

This sounds like exactly the kind of thing Toady needs to hear about:

Short of a dragon, I'm pretty sure weremammoths are the greatest hostile force.  While in were form anyway.

only superceded by werebluewhales or wereyourmommas
(wiki is down - will add link to "size" article later)
edit: i just realized how funny it sounds when a wereyourmomma shows up "it's your Momma, twisted into humanoid form" :D

Greatest hostile force is obviously a giant undead sperm whale.
