A square steel breastplate? Is that even usable?
That's one of the best artifacts I could imagine!

Oh I am certainly not complaining, just as long as my dwarves can actually use it! The mention that it was a square breastplate was throwing me off.

I'll definitely be having either my militia commander or my Count wearing that thing. Maybe the King if I ever decide to do what is necessary to become the Mountainhome.

Also discovered that I don't even need to provoke the hippies. My civ is already at war with them.

[...]

Sarek Conflictdagger has returned.  Someone has intruded upon its home.
Someone has stumbled into its web.

And already it's too late to stiffle the damage.  Half of Patternedclasps is in the caverns below.  The guard is distant, sparse and battered.

Time freezes a moment as I spot the Countess.  Shorast shouldn't be down here.  The caverns aren't a place for nobles.  A green foot explodes through her head.

I watch as my friends and colleagues pinball violently off each other, one after another, thrown dramatically with each kick of Sarek's mighty legs.  The children try to flee.  Many stalwart dwarves try to flee.  But the slaughtergrounds are covered in Conflictdagger's steely webs.  Few escape its clutches.  I do.

And when I dare turn to look at the carnage behind - when nothing remains but blood and bile and an enormous, eyeless and unharmed frog - Sarek hops away, back, deep into the caverns of its lair.  A mind unknowable.

[...]

Hey the good news is in the 2 years since, Sarek has killed off 2 other Forgotten Beasts soon as they wandered into the caverns.
Between the two they managed to bruise Sarek a bit.
I haven't figured out how to make him or her an object of worship yet.

I just saw a guy with two broken legs push a minecart with a corpse in it. Yeah.

To make matters worse, it looks like they've decorated the pedestal with normal wood instead of grown wood.

Hypocrites!

"Grown" implies that all of the wood, even decorations, are acceptable to elves.

I'm building a hillocks in my desert embark
I'm basically just channeling sand to create hillocks buildings to build within and I made a discovery

Everywhere I channeled downwards can now grow grass and related plants
I thus could literally turn the desert into a fertile plainland by just channeling down one level across the map

If a square is ever exposed to sunlight even briefly it becomes designated as "outdoors" and can forevermore grow surface plants even if you put a roof over it later.  This applies all the way down to the caverns and HFS.  If you like outdoor plants but not having to go outdoors, a 10x10 roofed over farm lets you do this and generally grows enough for a fort of almost any size.  That's usually one of my first projects.

oh yeah and I knew about that and have made farms like that in the past
I just didn't realize the rule also applied to a desert embark
so I could literally terraform this whole map if I want and I'm tempted to do so!

Swamp Titan showed up directly after a wave of migrants and at the same time as a were creature.  My military was able to defeat both foes with zero militay losses (and no lingering were issues from wounds) with only losing 4 migrants.  Also, the titan was supremely talented with his wings:  "The swamp titan grabs the axedwarf by the upper left back teeth with its right wing"

It was a dentist titan, and the dwarf surely needed tooth treatment

Be positive.

Your brave Dwarf attempted to rend the titan wing-from-wing using only his teeth. In retrospect, the front teeth would have been better for this than a molar, and the axe would have been best of all, but hey.

At least this one offed himself bravely, instead of trying to recover socks.
