I just learned that not all embark sites have as high elevation as what I'm accustomed to, so I might abandon my fortress due to the sheer lack of stone and underground z-levels. 5 layers between the surface and a cavern. I hope I didn't mess up advanced world gen because I love this world.

During worldgen, at the year 89 it became the Age of Legends. In the year 90 it became the Second Age of Myth. I want to think of this as, as the peoples of the world celebrated the claim of the fall of the megabeasts, a bunch of hydras, dragons, rocs, and bronze colossi stood up and said "Nope!".

Or a bunch of hydras, dragons, and rocs (among other things,) decided to get "busy."

The temporary fort is set up, and the permanent fort is being dug out. Rock crafts are being manufactured, and a miner went on break.

Had a small "ambush" of a single kobold swordsman in the summer of the first year of my new fort. The kobold hardly did anything, just sneaked around killing wild badgers with his copper shortsword before getting discovered and fleeing.

Odd. Oh well, free badger meat, right?

2nd winter of my first fort in over a year.    I had genned a medium world with about 4 dwarf civs surviving and used the legends viewer to make sure I picked the most beleaguered dwarf nation.  I've had several very small sieges, my fourth is a mob of elf corpses from the south.  They uncover a small elf ambush squad of four.  For the last 30 minutes I've watched the elves each fighting off a mob of zombies, with at least one of the elves hitting legendary and no fatalities on either side.  Damn hippie weapons.

How do you fix the issue where there's no option to brew? It's a frozen embark and for some reason my civ didn't have access to any food.

My dwarves ran out of drink twice, but I've managed to stabilize the supply.

Also, I took a look at a statue I had created and a bunch of carvings. The statue was of a LEECH. There were 3 carvings of the same civilization, one of circles, one of hamsters, one of another one of my dwarves (surrounded by plants, even though they were a miner) and another one of a minotaur called Outsweatblood.

Oh no! There are carp in the river! It should be fine... Armok have mercy there spawning vicious little children!

Yea, I have carp in my river, and while they haven't bred yet, I was going over the .40.x changes and thinking about my fort, and I realized that all non-egg layers like carp, other large fish, potentially even snakes (if they don't have the egg-laying tags) will probably now have live births of 1 young at a time.

Hammerer just splattered some poor guy's brains all over the wall with an adamantine warhammer.

Pretty sure he's a vampire.

Not very surprisingly, a _powerless_ magma cannon is a bit limited in its usefulness. It works, but cadence is on the low side - just over one shot per hundred steps (although those are shots at ~80% of terminal velocity, with lower shot speed, higher cadence should be possible). Extra minecarts in the barrel absolutely need rollers, thus power. The cannon would also need a pump to have enough magma to work with.

stealthed werebeasts are the new source of FUN now. case and point, a wereopposum sneaked its way into my fort and was discovered only after it crossed my lockdown bridge. The beast then proceeded to devastate my fort, leaving one dwarf dead and two infected in the first year.

the only thing worse is probably werecats since they come with legendary climber.

No, Wereelk can be worse. They can gore 6 Dwarves and infect another in short order. Also, look at the STEALTHED WEREMAMMOTHS thread...

Do you have both a breable plant and a barrel/large pot to put the booze in? If you're missing either one, you won't have the option to brew.

My bet is you're out of barrels.

Have them killed. Nothing solves a problem quite as effectively as simply having it killed.

Loving my newest embark. Casseterite, tetrahedrite, malachite, lignite, bitumous coal, limonite, hematite, and marble all within six z-levels of the surface stream, both up into the hills and down into the earth. Trained my smiths up on copper and bronze and now they're working with steel all before a major invasion has come. I forsee good things with this fort.
