Blamelesscloister has finished most of its thirtieth year and weathered the first real siege. Unfortunately, this three-squad siege had two squad leaders riding _giant bats_. Just great. After they sat on the edge of the map without moving for a whole month, i went into the raws and took the bats' [FLIER] tag away. The siege was routed with next to no dwarven exposure to danger, all by mechanised goblinite harvesting. The most prominent siege-beater was expectedly the infamous ☼nickel silver minecart☼, with a little help from its friends, the five native gold boulders. It's sitting at a solid 170 kills now, and the minecart grinder has proven adequate to handle cave dragons (youngish ones, since the world's only ninety years old).

On the less awesome side, the grinder has eaten two diplomats so far. Their pathing is really atrocious.

Humans have come to trade, I love this site, the tree line forced wagons to one path (which I paved :3) My dorfs are happy even after so much recent death (apparently the Dwarven Torch was friends with everyone.) Some of my initial 7 have gotten married and spawning dorflings. Fixed a bottleneck with the clayworks so I'm gonna start back up my pottery industry. I am so contented right now.

Edit, just lost 6 dorfs to an ambush. Now I remember why I hate wooded sites, you have to defend the surface :/

Starting a mega-project fort.  bumped up minerals, modded whip vines to be growable in any savage biome, forgot to turn off invasions. 

Well, at least this embark has a forest for making lots of cagetraps.

Outpost "Hope", Month 3 of the year 1200.
After finding a box of tools, including a crowbar, inside a pile of scrap metal, we've set up an area for opening boxes and crates next to the salvage yard. The living quarters, random junk stockpile, and meeting/eating room have been completed and sealed, so there's no risk of robots or creatures wandering in. The south half of the wall has been completed, made from blocks of the granite here. We're now focusing on destroying the mountain, so we don't have to build the wall multiple stories. A Mr. Macintosh is currently wandering around outside, so all progress is halted until it wanders off.

What mod are you playing?

Kobolds killed the dragon?  Then again, kittens have defeated forgotten beasts, so anything is possible.  Can you post the final bit of combat text?  Sorry you lost her :(.

Daaaaaaaamn! The migrant waves are badass like never before.
I got a dwarf that had lost his right hand during world gen come to my fort.
I guess he lost the hand fighting an elf, but I'll check legends to see why was every single body part of him bruised (including the brain) and his right hand missing.

Two kobold ambushes, to be specific. They're annoyingly good dragonslayers when they have spears and hit bone. Kobbies get bold when I leave the crap outside around for them to steal. I don't know if they had shields, but I'm pretty sure the human siegers did and a human spearman managed to get in a lucky shot that seriously disabled Inira and made her vomit regularly. (As of the edit below, no, it was kobolds too.)

Thanks for the condolences. I'll check the combat logs once I get off my phone and crawl out of bed.

Edit: Here's a movie I made where I scroll through all the combat reports under Inira's name. She got hit by a human spearman, then a kobold bowsquad shot her in the guts and right lung, chipped the bone of her left rear leg and tore a tendon, and only then burned to death. Then a second squad of kobolds, with at least one spearman, took advantage of Inira's injured state to stab her in painful and deadly places.

I hate kobolds :'(

You should go butcher her corpse and make yourself a dragon leather thong. It's what she would have wanted.

hELL NO

If I ever go outside to retrieve her corpse, I am giving her the closest thing to a proper burial I can manage. Probably I'll put her in a display case. She'll be a skeleton by then, I could call it a museum exhibit...

If you butcher her you could put her in, like, a hundred display cases, the more to honor her memory with.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

If I'd gotten my hands on her she'd be an honored member of my fort, I am not desecrating her memory by treating her like a common animal! :(

If a thong is completely out of the question, perhaps you should melt down the spears of the kobolds that slew her and build a bitchin' metal tomb out of them.

I think that could be arranged.
