At some point during the last siege my necromayor ended up raising and killing a single elf arm sixty two times while trapped under a bridge and now almost every post of his body has an infection... Dwarves are really not the smartest of creatures.

Is it possible in Fortress or adventure to self-thrall?

One of my scholars was bit by a werepanda, and survived. I want him to keep contributing to the research effort. So I'm going to build him a little cell next to the library, to see if he can contribute to the group discussions through fortifications.

So far in Waywardstakes, two dwarves have apparently committed suicide by attempting to climb up a waterfall from underneath.  I used gui/teleport to get one of them to safety, but he just went right back again.

Mind that a Fortification provides Line of Sight, so your Dorfs may panic when he transforms.  I advise adding a raising bridge in front of the fortification to block sight as needed.

The wheelbarrow just up and attacked her masterfully.
Christ, it hit her while she was standing up...
Put that wheelbarrow in the military.

Yeah, it's not practical. I'm just curious to see if it'll work.

One of the dwarves that committed suicide came back from beyond the grave, but I was able to successfully put him down again.

By getting caught in an enthralling mist. They'll stop being fort members I think tho

Well, I had a three-eyed giant robin attack me:







After that, a speardwarf, who went hostile due to hunting down an artifact, nicked a couple of my dwarves, including my mayor:

(Talking about uninvited guest and artifacts...)

The Forgotten Beast Bora Simorubsit (Bora Echoeddung), a boiling extract ejecting quetzal, found a way into the halls of Bridgehammer, despite the dwarves' (and their overseer's) belief that the first cavern layer and its monstrosities had been safely sealed behind a drawbridge. In the stone stockpile beneath the mason's, craftsdwarf's, mechanic's and jeweller's workshops, it encountered the gem cutter Lolor Medtobborush who did not like being interrupted from collecting materials for an artifact and went berserk, attacking the beast. It struck her down immediately.

Two squads of the military and a dwarfen child piled up on the beast, and finally, Ducim Cerolidor, a mason and novice speardwarf, pierced the beast's lung with her ≡copper spear≡.

Noone else was killed, but Bridgehammer's overseer might want to reevaluate the fortress' security.

It works! And it's even practical! Scholars don't need pathing or line of sight to discuss a topic. They just need to be in the same contiguous activity zone. So my werepanda can continue to contribute to the scholarly discussion from within her cell, without even scaring anyone with her monthly antics.

Oh, that also works for Inns and temples too btw. Keep your vampires/werebeasts sane for longer with the handy dandy corner of their room that overlaps with the forts tavern and temple zones!

Actually they probably have to be directly adjacent to someone in order to properly socialize, but that shouldn't be a big deal, right? They can still participate in poems and stories

We set one of Our Dwarfs to engraving Parts of the Fortress as Training, and he produced the following Image:
