Mountainhome of Tamedgolds, year 15
-------------------------------------
I just witnessed my first hammering (I've been playing this insidious game for a couple months now); a Cook dared defy the king and export critical dwarven goblet technology to the humans.  He survive the first 8 blows with only bruising (steel armor vs. copper hammer), but the ninth jammed his skull through his brain.  All goblets in the fortress are now neatly piled in the king's dining room (along with all millstones and unassigned battle axes) to prevent further export discrepancies.

Steelshaft is catching a bunch of naked mole dogs from the caverns. Currently got two trainers working on that. There was a giant cave spider down there at some point, some building destroyer traps are being spread around the caverns in case one comes back.

Population hit 91. The hammersquad is being complemented with a newly formed macesquad from the latest crowd of migrants. Bronze gear and silver weapons for both of them, since there's no other metals available and we have a bit of a fuel shortage.

Lemme just quote myself when a friend of mine asked me "wossup"...

"wuz zz, thought it would only be nap so left pooter on to let DF choochoo, come back to gobbins sieging me"

No new births in the time I wasn't paying attention, but since the last time I posted here I'm up to 107 beards and 3 new marriages (Abyssink, Twinklingdiamond, Holeportals). I'd be up to 108 if Mistem Whipgleam (luckily not one of my married/lovers) hadn't been dehydrated to death by the negligence of dumbass dwarves who forgot to refill his prison cell's booze stockpile.

Are you matchmaking or did the marriages just happen?

I had trouble keeping my jail stocked until I set my main booze stockpile to give to the jail one.  That guaranteed that the smaller jail stockpile filled up first and stayed that way.

To the dwarves' surprise, the humans of the Tattooed Confederacy arrived with a caravan, rather than an army.  Usually quick to play the blame game, the humans actually understood that the slaughter of their merchants last year by goblins was no fault of the dwarves.  Will wonders never cease!

Just happened. The bratlings spend 12 years in close proximity to one another so they're most of the marriages I've been getting and I only have 1 new lineage (Lockhachet); I think I will do some matchmaking, though.

Oh, I did that too. Just utter negligence, I suppose.

11th Limestone, and the latest batch of murdered goblins are stinking up the trap line as expected. Also, As Twinklingdiamond was born on 17th Galena, bringing us to 108 beards.

... I think it's matchmaking time, I'm bored.

... Also, I think I need to clean out the surface. Eventually. But I'm down to 38 FPS and 19 when I'm being sieged, so I definitely need to clear out the clutter outdoors.

There is weird things happening in my fort: My waterworks does not pressurize anymore. The water is supposed to go down, then up through a hatch, then through the rest of the system. Now, it does not come up through the hatch when I open it.

It worked before; I have muddy farmland to prove it. But I cannot find any bug reports about broken water pressure. So I'll need to dig up a new intake. With the flying pterodactyl and flying panda beasts nearby, I may finally put my artifact floodgate to good use.

Relicshield, pop. 153, Early Autumn of 350 (Year 99)



Only 2 years after the attack on Cilob Gillhandle, another civilian was ambushed by a foul werelemur.  Luckily there was plenty of help nearby this time for Sakzul Fissuretour, one of the best cooks of Relicshield. 

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Seeing a provider of legendary meals under attack filled the nearby dwarves with rage!  The werelemur didn't stand a chance.

Bomrek Mergeddiamond, the oldest dwarf of Relicshield, struck the killing blow.  Not bad for a 168 year old!

3rd Moonstone in Inktrail. We had a siege come down two months ago, with only around 70 goblins, Blizzard Men, and Trolls, so not bad around here. Our citizens were all able to make it inside safely (more like the lever puller waited until the last minute, but hey - we'll take what we can get!), with the exception of a turkey and poult that had flown to the top of the wall around their pasture. Still, given that we have 580 livestock, we made it out relatively unscathed.

Our fortress design has continued to impress, although we may have to come up with a way to safely let out the human merchants that are loading up their wagons at the moment. They might want to leave through the drwabridge at some point here before the goblins are gone. We have three pastures and outdoor farming all walled in, and the entrance to our fortress and our trade depot in between them. The drawbridge is surrounded with crossbow-only weapon traps, and they took out almost 10 gobbos, trolls, and Blizzard men. Kind of mesmerizing to watch them all slip in and out of consciousness. We didn't even have to test our second and third lines of defense - the stone traps around the trade depot's sides and our fortress entrance ramp as second line, or the non-projectile weapon trap lines alternated with upright spear/spikes surrounding our up ramp out.

Productivity remains high, with 0 idlers. Most are probably hauling useless crap wonderful items to their designated storage stockpiles, but hey - idle hands are Armok's workshop!

I'm sorry your husband had a strange mood and ended up making a useless trinket out of useless materials without gaining any experience in the process.

Alath was an expert Strand Extractor who sadly never got the chance to touch that beautiful blue metal in this fortress. Her eldest living daughter, Zon, is the new matriarch of Utteredinks and 20 years of age. Alath died at the age of 157, two years after her husband Rigoth Shipdawned who died at 156. She leaves behind 19 dwarves who carry her name.

That is quite a legacy!  It's too bad re: never getting her hands on the blue stuff :(.

Relicshield, Pop. 152, Late Autumn of 350 (Year 99)

Tragedy struck the Channeltree family with the death of Nil, the youngest daughter of Relicshield's Captain of the Guard and most experienced cook, Urdim. 

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Nil and her older brother, Morul, were caught outside by trolls during a siege.  Morul would have died, too, if not for the help of fellow reservists before the arrival of the fortress's elite troops.

Unfortunately, his wounds were quite grievous and his attending medic, Sarvesh Channelelder, informed Morul that he would never walk again :(

I have the blue stuff in my fort and all, I just can't be bothered to dig deeper. I have plenty of room for a checkerboard, but I don't want to sacrifice anybody to lure the clowns up...

I also have 2 candy canes, so it's a 50-50 chance I'm even going to get attacked.

Smooth and carve fortifications into the raw adamantine before you mine it. That way if you unleash the welcoming party of demons, they won't be able to leave the spire. If you act fast enough, the miners who discover the demons should be able to escape before getting hit by fireballs or poisonous spit or whatever.

My biggest problem with the blue stuff is the potential fps hit that happens even if the clowns can't get to you.

I never noticed any significant drop in FPS when breaching Hell, and my computer is absolute shit.
