Link to Salford Sal's idea about the squads w/o barracks, see "Recovering unhappy dwarfs":  http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=177577.msg8216803#new

Here's a GIF showing the castle & fort. The entire mountain is about 55 z-levels.

My dorfs (except one child) have been making useful artifacts, including most people without moodable skills. I have a huge bone industry, so a child (now a legendary bone carver) made a weapon rack out of elk bird bone. Also a bone throne and a rock mechanism. And a «coffin» menacing with spikes of SHEEP LEATHER. Did get a useless craft made of shells though

At least you were lucky enough to have shells at all.  Shells are the number one cause of failed moods and difficult to get if you don't have them.

I got this annoying thing down in the first cavern:

Quote
The Forgotten Beast Ipan Ronikngethac has come!  A great beakless warbler.  It has a pair of long antennae and it appears to be emaciated.  Beware its poisonous vapors!

Damn thing's flying around down there slaughtering elk birds and troglodytes.  It likes to breathe its poison at them and kick their heads in.  It got into a tussle with a giant cave spider earlier, and I was hoping the GCS's venom would weaken it or something, but doesn't look like it.  I'd carve some fortifications down there and send some marksdwarves down there to shoot the damn thing down, but I don't know what the vapors do, and I don't want it flying up and breathing it through the fortifications in case it's a really nasty syndrome.  I can't tell because it kills everything it attacks pretty quickly.

Had a bigger Aqir siege pop up. One of my axemen got decapped, although the monks proved themselves to be quite deadly in this one.



The mace squad captain also neglected to bring her mace and instead opted for...breaking her buckler over one of the invader's heads.

Oddly badass, shame that after that she was reduced to only using her fists.

Meanwhile one of the axemen is thinking of opening a horse lobotomy company.

Just lost my fortress to an undead siege. While the undead massacred my dwarves, I managed to seal the entrances and unseal the caverns, allowing a forgotten beast into the fortress that cleansed it of living and dead alike. All that remains is an impentrable tomb, but it is at least clear of foul undead.

I was browsing through legends and learned that a goblin fort had been sacked by the humans. Not once or twice, but one hundred and twelve times. There's been over a thousand deaths on both sides over 200 years of fighting, and just about every historical figure in the human government body has participated in this semi-annual sacking in some way.

Not sure if dying of old age is an honor or a shame for weaponmasters. On the one hand, it means they never got the opportunity to die in glorious battle. On the other hand, it means nothing could beat them in glorious battle.

Had once a goblin master that went undercover in order to participate in competitions during frog man festivals. He was doing it over two hundred years, then probably got mad after losing a morningstar throwing championship and conquered the frog man lands.

Procedurally generated customs sure are curious.

During a siege, one of my elite monk wrestlers grabbed a boat hook from one of the drowned invaders...and proceeded to go absolutely ham with it.



I love this game.


Pike squad captain also let out an anime scream as the siege was nearing its end.

Nothing personnel drowned one. It is the apex of Dwarven martial arts to defeat the enemy with their own weapons

Meanwhile, my dwarves are turning the outside sculpture garden into a vomitorium:

As is tradition the dwarves go outside and coat the surface with their vomit, painting it a lovely shade of green.
