Judicious use of region-pops list-all shows this to be the case -- all my cavern fauna is deader than disco:

I guess this would be a natural/expected consequence of an actually-simulating fort that had that cavern layer open for some (large) number of years. Was the fort in operation for some decades or centuries before you reclaimed it? If so, score one for Toady for including that detail in world gen, or at least the site reclamation mechanics.

Fort's been around of ~25 years (20 years first run, then half a year in adventure mode, then the rest after reclaiming). And there was this one forgotten beast in a nook of the first cavern that kept annihilating the local fauna...

On the other hand, when I retired the fort the first time, spawning was perfectly functional.

Playing again after some time away from the game. A new world and a new fortress... and again I'm being flooded with an endless stream of undead infiltrators.

I checked the Legends for some clues about this and it appears that they're all after an artifact alpaca wool thong named... Shameappear.  Right after my now-Legendary clothier Ral Shipfortress created it back in 298, no less than ten different necromancers started plotting to steal it from my mayor's undergarment drawer.

Funny thing is that Shameappear is the cheapest, most basic beginner artifact in the whole fortress. The fort is basically filled to brim with wondrous treasures, each worth a small kingdom, but no one cares about those. No, it's the thong they all want. Kinky bunch, those necroes.

I thought things continually spawned, or is that only in Adventure mode?
Every biome has a list of animals and their populations. "Random" spawns are taken from the list of animals with populations. So if you kill all the deer in the Biome  they become locally extinct.

Vesselhole just fell after a dwarf failed a mood, went berserk, and started a loyalty cascade.

At least it lasted longer than the one before it where the dwarves started digging the entrance and immediately hit the first cavernů

Been there, done that, had to dig more rocks for building workshops, and then slowly accreted by troll and crundle attacks while we tried to wall a small section of our caverns in so we could live in it. It was interesting, but confirmed to me that dorfs aren't cavern dwellers, they need to dig their own dwellings.

After repelling undead agents for few more years I again had to get proactive against all those necromancers scheming to steal Shameappear the alpaca wool thong from my fortress. Several destroyed towers later the stream of necromantic infiltrators finally stopped... only to be replaced by regular living agents. Apparently these were sent by various foreign holy men and church officials who are also now eyeing the same damn thong.

Stop it, you pervs. You can't have the thong, so stop lusting after it. Besides, I think one of the masons is currently wearing it.

A former adventuring companion showed up at my fort, still coated in something called "filthy slush." I was forced to retire my adventuring group due to this crap, which causes permanent nausea/constant vomiting.

From what I can tell he pet someones dog, transferring the slush disease, and the contagion spread from there.

Got my dwarves sorted into plague/healthy burrows, trying to figure out what areas of my fort are contaminated. Trying to decide what to do with the infected, even if I can flush the crap off they'll always be sick and I'd like to have at least one fortress that isn't constantly drowning in vomit.

CRIME !

Someone stole an artifact turban that was on display in the craftsdrows guildhall !

Fortunately, 4 citizens witnessed it, and the guilty party was apprehended and sentenced to 224 days in chains. That'll teach them !


A short time later, an artifact figurine was stolen ! I saw it being passed off to a visiting dwarf necromancer. Interrogated them... there's a conspiracy !

Now I have 12 conspirators chained up, with possibly more to come !

Might need to build more chains at this rate.

I discovered encrusting the chains with gemstones, and plating them with precious metals, does massive things for the cheerfulness of dorfs paying for their crimes, making them more capable of going on with their life after they finally get released. Rehabilitation works!

PRISON RIOT !

one of the goblin dancer visitors who I discovered was part of a conspiracy to steal one of our drows artifacts, has started a prison riot by throwing a goblin tallow roast at one of the other prisoners.
Who has responded by clubbing them with a 132page cassiterite codex they happened to be holding.

Of the 30 persons convicted in the conspiracy, 7 died in the prison riot. Only one was a citizen of the fortress.
26 foreigners and 4 citizens were found guilty of the conspiracy. One of the conspirators has been sentenced to a total of 15 years imprisonment, for multiple offences, including multiple instances of disorderly conduct from attacking other prisoners, and citizens restocking the prison's stockpiles of food and drink, as well as for the three pages of crimes that they confessed to committing several centuries before the fortress was founded.

I've never heard of such a large conspiracy. Very interesting. Your captain of the guard must be pretty good at sniffing out villains.
