Got an epic siege that I am ignoring. Over 200 units.

I'm too busy removing undead from the caverns to care.

Another Fortress has been left behind due to fps death. Over 300 Dogs alone wander the halls now, not counting the actual farm animals. The Fort has been doomed for some time due to poor design choices, the bedrooms being too cluttered and in the way of expansion, not to mention the early fiasco with the aquifer, so I canít say Iím sad to see it go while remaining a reasonably hineat Human being.

What kind of Computer would actually be needed, from a purely technical level, to run a 16x16 tile game of Fortress mode withou crqshing as soon as the Game was unpaused?

After a werecamel attack, killing 6, leaving 1 bitten before the militia arrived, the bite survivor was drafted into his own squad to be stationed in isolation.  It happened to be the empty captain of the guard position, and he proceeded to administer beatings to 2 of the marksdwarves.  1 of whom he bit in the neck.  It was poetic justice when he was stationed next to the future site of the goblin cages and killed by that same marksdwarf squad he had beaten. 

I can also now confirm that were-curses are not passed via bites when the cursed entity is in normal form.

I'm thinking about doing a new embark considering I have more dead dwarves than living dwarves, and new migrants come despite them knowing that "this may be their tomb"
Time to build a fancy mausoleum for the dead, to honor their efforts and the follies that lead to their deaths.

There is a tunnel I dug to place the coffins, memorials are scattered throughout the surface, and even so, a few ghosts still roam. I'm treating the fortress as gone. I've learned a lot from this, and will hopefully do better in a new embark.

An act of dwarven engineering happened.

Oh my...What happened here?

I spent six in-game years constructing a tower of screw pumps 150 z-levels high. The top of the stack opens onto the surface. The bottom of the stack opens into the magma sea.

I was just opening the thing up for a test firing when the goblins came. Flawless timing on my part? Horrible timing on theirs? I dunno. But I'm very very pleased with myself right now. :D

I uprooted the bowels of the earth over the faces of my enemies. That's what happened.

Hopefully everything you need is underground, and that you are self sufficient, because caravans are not magma safe

Yeahh, I kinda sorta totally melted the last humans to pass through here. But I've got plenty of food down here, and I melted more goblins than I did humans, so I figure the numbers check out... and if the humans decide to make trouble, well, I'll melt their armies too! Magmify! Magmify magmify magmify!

I am in such a very good mood.

I found an "Unknown Material" wall deep underground.

Well, Lanceheld is going on its own for a little... Don't want the constant crashing. Wish it was an actual loss, but for now waiting to come back to it...

But new project, less aquifers, more minerals... Starting small and going to see where it goes.

you might prevent them from using those if you forbid refuse from outside to be claimed in the orders menu or in the same menu have them not claim death items.
remember to turn those options on again when things have cleared.

Outside refuse was already off. This session I did set o-F-o to forbid dead creatures. That successfully prevents idiots from charging down the long staircase to pick up the body parts of ex-zombies they just dropped into the caverns. I guess I'll find out if it prevents the Great Outdoors Tooth-Hunt next time something happens out there.

You certainly should be; well done! :D :thumbs_up: You have earned the Boatmurdered/Roomcarnage medal of achievement in the field of magma engineering!

What power source did you use?

well fuck.

Isn't that relatively good news? According to the wiki, dragons are not trap-immune, so you should be able to capture it and use it for shenanigans.

On topic:

Reloaded the seasonal autosave from a few days before; re-established the long drop for the zombies; carefully started dropping them one by one. It's slow but there were no escapes this way. Three zombies down, 21 to drop, cage traps slowly being reset as well.

Unfortunately a were-skink showed up a few days later, appearing very close to the fort entrance. Apparently I need to make some statues and stick them out on the surface to serve as sneaky-building-destroyer detectors in the future. My civilians did not behave as expected, unfortunately. I set the civilian alert, the three dwarfs hauling zombies down to the pit stockpile correctly cancelled jobs because they were outside the burrow, but they continued carrying the (heavy) cages rather than dropping them and running inside as I expected. As a result, one semi-useless dwarf (legendary tanner ::), but also part of a young married couple with one child and both grandparents in the fort, and she's most likely pregnant again at this point) was severely wounded and obviously infected before the first pair of axe lords hacked the were-skink to pieces.

I'm on the fence about whether to do another reload here... I see why people find these were-creatures annoying; I wouldn't mind except for the stealth, sneaking up too close to the entrance to raise the drawbridge in time.

this is assuming it actually paths through my cage traps. and doesn't set the entire goddamn forest on fire.
