In an attempt to get Goblins to siege me, I created this taunting message.

There is no such a thing as "elven ladies". There are elves and elves with breasts. No other difference.

I decided to massacre the elven caravan this time around. They never bring anything useful anyway, and my three-man-military could use the tragedy.

"Oh, no, Urist, come on, don't... AUUUGHHH you threw up in the brazier.  Classy bro.  Now the whole glorious entrance is going to smell like burnt vomit.  It's a wonder you didn't burn yer beard off you ninny."

On second thought, I feel like that's what most dwarf fortress would start to smell like after a while.

So I'm about to purchase 78,406 Urists of stuff from the Dwarven caravan.

Prepared Food is OP.

It seems my insulting message had backfired. The elves were insulted by my taunt and brought no exotic animals this year.

I had an encounter with one 1-z level and another 6-z level with layer of clay in-between.

There were some difficulties, but in the end I breached it and engineered a waterfall just next to the stairway which comes from the uppermost and is drained by the lowest aquifer level.

It can be turned on and off. The drain can be opened so the flowing water will be available below, and it is just three lever operated bridges away from doubling as drowning trap. I like it already.

This sums it up nicely:
"Thy Elven sins shall be immolated in a holy bath of magma. Should any of thee perish, 'twas but Armok's punishment for your elven sins. Shed not a tear, elves, for they were impure of heart, placing the wood ahead of the stone, and thus unworthy of the Dwarven Way. Those blessed elves who survive are the Chosen of Armok, and shall be rewarded greatly, with gold and silver, before those fortunate few are invariably and immediately stabbed by various weapons. As a 'sacrifice', of course."
-- Excerpt from the holy book of Armok,
On Elves

My poor weaponsmith has a broken heart. She'll be fine, though. It doesn't seem to be bleeding.

Of seven axedwarves, 6 of them have become Axe lords, + one legendary axedwarf Champion. When Rhinos are making my haulers cancel jobs, I send out my axedwarves to slice them into little pieces. It's a good life. During a recent ambush, I watched an axe lord rip a goblin marksman squad into little tiny pieces in a few seconds,dodging bolts like it ain't no thang.

Unfortunately, these super efficient and death defying dwarfs generate a lot of hauling jobs. I need to find magma soon to dump goblinite into soon, or things are going to get slow, in terms of FPS.

And thus did the dream of dwarven antigravity fade away, not with a massive explosion or a flood of magma, but with a whimper.

I'm going to be depressed all day now.

Aw, shit...

On another note, she's the best mayoress/duchess I could ask for. No mandates.



On the other hand, maybe one of these days she'll demand a slade statue or something... shit... and her a legendary butcher and all...

Hah, your duchess is immodest. Hmm. Wonder how that will be written in the new version?
"She is comfortable without clothes in the company of others".
That would probably be near the extreme end of that scale, though.

My noble demanded a nickel bed in his tomb. Yeah, get screwed.

So, I've walled off the Caverns, and Forgotten Beasts keep spawning. We're up to three now. The first one was a beast composed entirely of Sterling Silver. The second, was a giant ant. This last one is composed entirely of coke. Yes, coke.

One day I might crack it open and fill it with the magma I just found finally. I'm worried I might breach into HFS accidentally. Here we go.
