It's all Urist's fault! He's messing up Dwarf Therapist...

I've been doing my first double-slits recently. And building a town on surface, not in mountain. It's much more interesting, more difficult as well. Then drive died... So I can't play DF for a while.  >:(

A hunter took down a giant rhinoceros while I wasn't looking. So I can't tell you how it went down, but my hunter is completely unharmed.

Edit: His tongue, nose, ear, and teeth are covered in blood.

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.

Hey, that reminds me of my first grand arena opening. It was beautiful arena, with multiple layers, invaders would fall from retracting bridge through few levels, tavern with seats into the battle grounds, connected to three side dungeons...

When I tested first match, the tavern visitors jumped down to the arena and beat everything with their hands. Well...

Two miners got stuck on the wrong side of a river after an accident involving some stone floors, a drawbridge and a cavein. Both of them climbed to the top of the canyon several times while gaining no climer skill for ??? reasons.

I hate that dwarves today would not even enjoy a proper arena. :'(

The soft dwarves wind up deeply traumatized. The hardened dwarves get mad that they're not allowed to join in.  ::)

I am deeply disturbed by how you guys thought dwarves were all bloodthirsty savages.
They just like to dig holes guys.

in a world like that of DF, i doubt anyone would be traumatized by seeing a wild animal ripping their lifestock apart.
they'd just pick up the remains and be frustrated because they realize that they'll have to wait another year until the caravan returns and brings some wool for them to wear new clothes while the old clothes are tattered.

That was the worst part about it, they defeated all gladiators and got negative thoughts because of the arena storming. Like really, they got offended by their own decision? One word: Dorfs!!!

Considering how the Martial Trance is their racial ability I always thought Dorfs are more fighty and violent than 'umies and elves.

that and the fact, that all those cruel things that can happen in DF already happened years before one starts their fort, so they already know how harsh the world is and should have accepted living in it already.
it's almost as if they could live in the most brutal jungle full of predators seeing things being eaten alive etc. for 100 years and still think they live in a cottoncandyworldmarshmallowwonderland and get a mental breakdown once they see the remains of the donkey at the butchers.

Helmsdreamy, with its history of a total fort kill and a Concerningly Extensive crypt (with 519 coffins), seems to have stabilized for now.

also i should clarify that there were more coffins before the dragon came and smashed a bunch of them

Dawnthunder: It menaces with spikes of tetanus
After the fire had burned down all of the wooden next boxes on the surface, Mottled Petrel was reluctant to replace them with more wooden nest boxes. Instead, he placed the remaining store of wooden nest boxes in the dormitory for any aspiring koopa mothers.

The nest boxes were immediately overrun by helmet snakes.

reminds me to build a secondary and tertiary gate to the main entryway - you cannot have too much redundancy in defences.


so the outpost liasion proposed the title of barony to my tiny little meetinghall in the side of a hill - we're basically still just a hillocks of 10 dorfs.
also 7 migrants showed up:
a dyer with her criminal husband and their 5 children.
i don't know what to say... or what to do... should i build a prison right away?

Nah it just means they are a member of some distant criminal organization, IIRC.

I don't think it'll have any bearing on fort mode. Certainly they won't run around and do the crimes.
