They're standing in a mob and it's in the middle of them. Right there, there are two red arrows pointing right at it.
Check your 'R'eports, da_nang. It looks like they're TRYING to do something there.

So I was auto-designating a small hematite vein next to the volcano.

My miners start to dig, suddenly magma, smoke and !!miners!!.

I don't even know how the hell this happened  ???

That's the problem, they weren't generating any reports. Only the vulture and its target were. The soldiers just stood there.

Do they have weapons?  Can they see the vulture?
Yes, they have weapons and the vulture was right next to them on the same z-level so they should have had line of sight. The vulture finally died when it attacked one of my soldiers and subsequently got its head bashed in with a warhammer.

Snapping Turtles are awesome. Not only do I have infinity+2 shells I have all the meat bones and eggs I could ever need. I'm trying to figure out how to make scale usable for leather. If I can figure that out I'll have all of my needs provided by turtles.

Took it long enough. Let's hope it gets captured.

EDIT: On the same day:

What is this, Beast Central Station?

EDIT2:
I don't know how, but that FB somehow managed to get into the central stair case despite there being no access. MOBILIZE EVERYONE

EDIT3: Why is that no-one wants to hit the FB? They're all hugging the FB, while repeatedly being hit by it and not retaliating.

NO ONE'S FUCKING KILLING IT
STOP STANDING THERE AND DO SOMETHING

Yep, some serious bugs in combat. They only dodge and that's it.

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

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..."
*kthunk*

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.
