After having two catastrophic werebeast tavern attacks in my last two forts I have finally stopped one(I think), There weren't even any casualties other than everyone in the tavern, my relations with the humans(I don't think they like me caging their merchant up and dumping him into a 1x1 danger room), the sanity of all the dwarves that have to clean up the mess(or more likely just drink in the blood vomit and limbs), and the sanity of the 26 soldiers who had to "clean up the mess"(I don't think they like being told to kill werebeasts in non-werebeast form).

At least you don't have to deal with things not getting done. As of right now, there's a corpse of a ewe that needs clean up. It's in the up and down stairway, but no dwarf has decided to pick it up; everybody's too busy with workshop orders and military I guess. There are no free haulers in my fort. My fort's max pop cap is like 14. It's going to double every 10 years, and I'm going to have like visotrs in my fort after that. It's weird, but my PC is garbage so I don't have much of a choice.

Playing a human fortress where I modded mining and masonry skill gain to %50 of their normal speeds. This is sort of an experiment on nerfing skill gains in general, but also a sort of an acknowledgement that humans are less prepared for the rigors of deep mining. I have barely noticed the effects.

Anyways, here is a .gif of my walled village:

I have constructed apartments hugging the brook to the northeast, a crude tavern with a walled garden in the southwest, and next up is a temple to the god of gambling. Which is hilarious because I just watched this movie. I can't help but imagine my fantasy civilization has begun to worship Chow Yun-Fat. As we all should.

i feel like 75% or more is appropriate.

i feel like humans are only just starting to use shafts in their mining, the majority of human mining being drift.

Growing Nether-cap trees, +1 z, above the magma sea, on obsidian floor. Their nice cool rootballs go straight into the magma. Hoping for something interesting to report. Each is 1000yr old.

Does anyone know if Glumprong(evil lumber) beds promote nightmares and thus faster book creation?  Last fort I dabbled with a temple to a god of nightmares, and put inside it, a bunkroom full of beds, but nothing really noticeable occured. They were not made of Glumprong, however.

Sadly there aren't interactions like that yet. So glumprong does nothing, and a temple to a god of nightmares will behave like any other temple.

I would love to do something with those sorts of interactions if I could, though. I'm testing my Spellcrafts mod again, built a fort to test magics working, turns out writeable secrets for every spell I want to add wouldn't work out because there are simply not enough spheres, and a sphere with multiple secrets associated with it will have books/slabs teach you any of those secrets, not just the one they supposedly contain. So it would be a huge mess.

I forgot about an entryway into the second caverns so a bunch of elk birds, a giant bat and a reacher walked in and scared/attacked dwarves. There were only a couple broken limbs thankfully.

While being chained in Bridgehammer's prison for 85 days for a number of crimes committed while throwing a tantrum (one of them was inflicting lethal injuries on a legendary weaver), Urvad Sazirsulus' stress level went from haggard to quite happy, from over 30,000 to under -22,000.

Not *that* special. 3x3 room with detailed floors and walls, masterful bed, superior quality gold chain, 1x1 food and drink stockpiles, 1x1 zone added to an existing temple.
The last tantruming dwarf went beserk in the neighboring cell during his detainment and will now spend the rest of his life there. He only got a silver chain, but everything else is quite similar. That's why I'm quite surprised about Urvad.

What does the thought about being imprisoned say, specifically?

Sounds pretty okay but not miraculous.  Maybe it's not what's in there but what isn't in there.  Possibly something in his normal activities was stressing him out and he's improving without whatever it is.

"Repentant" - you better be, Urvad! Good for him. Also, interested near a fine bed.

I've just never seen someone recover so quick.

That's because "repentant" is a positive thought instead of a negative one. He's getting happier from being imprisoned. It happens to some individuals, but I'm not sure what personality trait controls it.

Just lock the door and let him enjoy the padded cell for a while longer. Just don't let him starve.
