Wham! Another siege. Population down to 28, the whole fort is miasma, vomit, and ghosts. A child apparently threw itself into the chasm at the second bridge. Fell 23 z-levels down, straight into my mining installation. Child bits everywhere, the mother went berzerk and was put down by my vampire speardwarf via a *steel spear* to the heart.

God, I love this game.

You know, I've never had to deal with three hundred zombies, but I think that flooding the map with magma generally helps in cases like this.

Also some poor deluded Goblin Snatchers decided to show up.

The children will probably be better off in a goblin tower, where they will eventually rise to a respectable position, then in your undead-infested hellhole fort where they will grow up to become cannon fodder soldiers, get torn apart and spend the rest of their miserable existence shambling around moaning for braaaaaains.

Funny thing is that there are no children here.
Trying to get my dwarf to like each other enough to marry and have children because 7 dwarfs is far to few.
I also have no anvil, no wood, and no axe.
Undead up to 624 now.

1.5 year old embark, just purchased most of the human caravan with this one exceptional roast. It's 25% of my wealth. If it was masterful, it'd be worth 112320.
Is there a use for crafts? Roasts are less one-sided and much more valueable for the time put in.


What's the most valuable roast you've seen?

4 Swordsgoblins and 1 Swordsman from the goblin civ have arrived to terrorize my dwarfs.
I don't think they knew about the current undead siege going on here.
Pictured: 5 Sword users vs 654 undead and 3 Necromancers.

(Currently working on a plan to wipe the siege out but slow progress from FPS death.)

My Dwarves possess supernatural luck and prowess.

Silentthunders has this big quarry in the ground, continuous all the way. So the caverns require a bit of careful digging and evidently...

...The large cave in that engulfed three Dwarves was testament to a few mistakes. One of the miners was thrown 3 zlvls into the air, another miner off a 2z lvl ledge and into a pillar and an off duty axedwarf constructing a wall.

0 casualties. Not even a single broken bone.

Proficient Axedwarf, bearer of mighty moustache.

This is the crazy miner who started it all! 3z lvls high I tell ya!

It's ok, my skull cushioned my fall.

These Dwarves all got baptized by boiling magma. What do I do with them?

The Goblins just started a siege against me, they even made some camp fires.
Then they got Zerg Rushed by the undead that were already besieging me.

Those brave, foolish, and blood thirsty goblins took out 275 undead of a total of 678 before being defeated.

In other news, project "Crush the Siege!" Is nearing completion.

Well, I haven't got a fort started yet, although I do have a Masterwork world for it.

However, after looking through the Legends, I found out that the resident Dwarvern civilization is hanging on by a thread. It's total population is two. We have our fair queen and our studious general. That is all that is left. The Mountain Halls have been ravaged by ludicrous Automatons hell-bent on removing the Dwarven race from the earth. But fear not! Soon, a group of seven dwarves shall rise from the earth to start civilization anew. I shall call them: The Pheonix Rising.

My goal is to create a fort stable enough to replenish Dwarfdom's population and train enough guardians so that nothing may impede them from becoming the mightiest nation of the world. Heroes shall be born.

I also plan to create an adventurer to aid in this task. Due to the ultra-low population levels, I suspect that he will be one of the first migrants to the new home. Upon his arrival, he shall become the leader of our brave exhibition, and eventually a baron of the kingdom. Under the might of his great war axe, no threat may stand.

This is my hope. Time to strike the earth!

...When I have the time to go through with this plan...
