how did the evil thrips get into your fort though? didnt you follow the normal evil-embark protocol of walling off completely asap after digging in after embark?

I'm slow :P

I don't really understand how people accomplish stuff so quickly.  It seems like an entire day passes in just the time it takes my dwarf to pick up his equipment and walk to the digging designation.  No way I'm going to be dug in and walled off in under a week.

A gremlin werepanda spawned right near the ogre siege camp and mauled an ogre before turning back into a gremlin and running away.

Then one of the ogres turned into a werepanda too and got killed by his fellows. :P

Modding is fun.

Edit: Another werepanda ogre dead. :D

Before you hit unpause you should have a temoprary fortress designated. I generally have ten seconds before it starts to rain which can kill a fort before it starts.

Nice!  I'll have to try that out after work.

I'm trying to get some Marksdwarves right now to try and take the fight to her, but my guess it will end with a bunch of dead dwarves.  I'll have to check out legends mode after that.

So I got three marksdwarves, and they've got some practice killing kobold snatchers.  Hopefully they will be able to take out this creature.  Unfortunately I've got a ghost floating around my fort now.  It doesn't seem to do much, but I think it just possessed my weaver with all the goblin kills.

New ogre siege. After clearing the undead siege, an "Ogre Slave Maceman" gave birth to a baby ogre.

Apparently sieges are no place for babies, and the mother and the rest of her squad decided to get rid of the newborn. :'(

Edit: The baby murderer became a friend of the fortress, which started a loyalty cascade, and now most of the squad is dead. :o

Just halved the population by sending out my hunters, woodcutters, and miners against a small siege. Now everyone's pissy and GOD is it entertaining.

A naked mold dog got its chance to see the overworld at the cost of the use of one paw and another. It will likely be captured or die, but it hasn't been a nuisance to any Dwarves too much. Stukos Anvilshake, a child has gone into a secretive mood. This will be the third child to achieve legendary skill status in my Fort if it is successful. Zotir the Titan now resides in the Moose pit as a zombie.

And yet somehow amid the tanzanite buddha, the raining logs and the mysterious moods, the only thing that has me puzzled is why my Doctor/animal trainer Tekkud is taming eagles by feeding them eagle guts.

Behold the price of disobedience.



Vetted a new militia captain, she strangled two wolves. Then as soon as she got into her armor a goddamned centaur ripped off one of her gauntlets and bashed her skull in with it. Nearby militia commander hacked it's head off with his artifact Zweihander but she's got three surgeries before she's back on her feet.

not really my fort per se, but i've been thinking of a new run that involves some mods: "Pinky Up run".

All your dwarves are high class snobs. upon embark, you have 7 legendary dwarves. one mason, one carpenter, one weapon and armor smith, one brew and cook, one glassmaker, one jeweler and one cheese maker. sieges can happen in the first year. everything your dwarves own must be masterwork or higher. anything below must be dumped. Embark point depends on the player. this does require modding (which i suck at) so any tech savvy ppl, feel free to try it.

Yet another fort. I was bored and decided SOD this flat-embark lark, I want a WATERFALL! And a waterfall I now have. This might well be... interesting. On the other hand, I have white sand and fire clay, so FUCKING WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!


Update:

Oh, FUCK!

Goblin Archers came out in force. My militia commander ran into a hail of arrows like a boss dodging and blocking and swatting away arrows carrying a kite shield in one hand and a sword named for the fact it requires two hands in the other.  Arrows bounced off his armor and he cleaved into a goblin mount. Then he received a very minor injury to the groin and ran off into the forest. When he discovered an elf child snatcher he continued running and didn't stop until he got to the hospital. One of his subordinates on the other hand turned into a badass despite being a novice swordsman. The first thing the ambushers did was shoot an arrow right into her fucking eye, she proceeded to hack the attackers into increasingly tiny pieces and remained on the battlefield until the last greenskin was a pile of rusty iron and meat.

Later after her eyeball had been wrapped in cloth and sewn together (because dwarves don't understand how eyes work) and she was walking around the old battlefield a snatcher stuffed her baby into a bag. Combat lasted seven rounds, none of them went well for him. By the time it was done his body parts were strewn throughout several nearby trees.

Why DF? WHY? WHY MUST YOU TORMENT SILENTTHUNDERS WITH THE SADS?

Oddom Dentedlashed... The Fort's first child to reach adulthood. Arrived with the fourth wave of migrants that kid did. Had great potential too, picked up the mace when Ingrish was killed.

The rat. That giant rat.

No one knows when it escaped.

No one knows when it died.

No one knows when it came back to life.

No one except Oddom.

The Fort's only sole surviving war dog was torn to pieces. She died nameless with no owner.

Oddom fought long enough for reinforcements to arrive right when the rat closed its jaws around her head.

My Fort is now full of scared pigs and alarmed soldiers. The spikes are being constructed.

And the Fort has lost a child.

@loud whisper

evil embark im guessing? never played one of those before, but i think evil embarks are unique in that it warrants the construction of traps throughout your fort, even in secure areas inside, as well as complex extensive lockdown systems for parts of the fort (in addition to refuse disposal).

And... always keep an eye on animals with short life spans like rats, may as well magma pit those alive if you dont have a meat industry anyway. Bad luck, "fun".



For my fort, stockadeSprayed is under siege again after a calm year of relative peace, by the standard force of unmounted goblins and trolls (the goblins have not had mounts since their law-giver/only leader was captured in a siege a few years back). I was going to try out my new bridge-pit drowning trap (that i previously would not have tried due to bridge-disabling mounts), but have not yet completed all the cage traps, and so i will relay on my cage-maze/drowning maze to capture them.

My fort has undergone some major changes the last year, the most noticeable is the relocation of the corpse grinders, the re-organization of the hospital (that increased it's capacity by over 300%), the construction of the giant cave spider silk farm, and major stockpile/workshop reorganization that would increase efficiency.

well, the force of darkness is upon us, hopefully it will go well with most of the goblins being caged, and few drowning. I need live prisoners of war to test out my new magma-cooker chamber, and weaponized deadly dust forgotten beast rotting chamber.
