Been under siege by keas, they just keep hovering overhead where my military can't reach them and scaring everyone who goes outside... Here I thought a good biome would be easier, but I guess that only applies if it's not right next to a jungle and an evil biome...

So I had visit from a werekangaroo that killed two of my migrants. New people? Great, let's make another squad! This dude here killed the werekangaroo, let's make him squad leader. Oh, he's a kid, 3 years old. 0_o
Tip of the hat to you, young warrior! We expect great things from you in about 9 years.

No, I'm not casting for dwarven version of The Real Housewives. To encourage childbirths I drafted all married couples to a squad and put them to train in a small room; after months of initial confusion they just started sparring. I probably shouldn't be this amused reading the combat logs.

So far two babies have been born as a result from all the close action in the barracks.

What's the green thingy just below the giant? Looks like a fat goblin or something.

...WHO DID THE GIANT THINK WAS GOING TO SAVE THEM?

Seriously, all of my wat.

"Oh dear, I've stumbled into a bit of an asskicking by way of this unarmed dorf I pissed off, can somebody call the authorities and pull this little bastard off me? He keeps biting my fingers and punching my fat, it's really painful, seriously... anybody?"

*militia shows up*

"Oh thank Armok, can you help me out here?"
'We sure can, one sec.'
"Now now, I don't think you need to use the spear on him... he's not even armed or, oh wait..."

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

I have awful luck with moods. My first non possession in a while hit a dwarf that was already a legendary bone carver.

Finally reached the approximate-600 mark for number of wall spikes placed on the curtain wall. If they were placed anywhere else they would already be a forest of menacing spike weapon traps; but that would be cheating.

"A giant menacing spike falls in a menacing spike forest with no one near to hear, does it kill a goblin?"

Also, hey there! I thought you died somewhere between 2013 and now, LoudWhispers.

Just made a few coins and learned that my civ has:
1 - destroyed the goblin civ in the area, which would explain why I haven't been attacked
2 - gained a necromancer as king, which can only spell Fun in the future...

Hi! There was a while where my internet was fried for a good few weeks and I've certainly used Bay12 less; very much deeaaad and out of energy - both myself and my computer. Less so now, thanks!
