"is it harmful for my dwarves ? I bet it is"

Always a safe default assumption in this game  :)

I have a shit-ton of sentient animals now. Also I'm starting a rutherer breeding program with 3 females and one male.

EDIT: Earlier, a baby was orphaned by a GCS, so I started following him around. He grew into a child and can fend for himself now.

The Forgotten Beast Esnustotu has come! A towering humanoid composed of mud! Beware its webs!

OK, the webs could be a bit bad, I thought, but I've got a six-strong squad in full Īsteel armorĪ. They'll be OK.

The Forgotten Beast kicks The Macedwarf in the head with its left foot and the injured part collapses!

Nope. He punched and kicked them to death in a few seconds as if the armor wasn't there. The combat logs didn't even mention "through the Īsteel helmĪ".

Save scum. I'll trap him with bridges. Shall he become marksdorf target practice, or shall I test how much a floorful of Īsteel spike trapsĪ can hurt?

Oh you got a web-spitting one too? Just as a migrant wave finished showing up I had a web-spitting slug with wings Titan appear. I was worried about the webs at first, but I had 20 elite swordmasters and axe lords at my disposal, plus an army of war grizzly bears!

They then proceeded to hack off the Titan's wings, spew its guts out, make numerous hits on it and turn it into a terrifying bloody wreck as none of that stopped its rampage while it bit all of their heads off. A save scum later, and I've locked myself inside with about eight of the new migrants not making it to safety, my dorfs furiously dishing out crossbows, quivers, and ammo.

Drat, the siege prevented the dwarven caravan from showing up. I'm sure the militia could have dealt with the feeble ten goblin assault in a straight fight, but I didn't want to risk injuries. Instead, I holed everyone up and waited for them to try their luck in the tunnels of death.

The plan had a couple of hitches, though. First, only a single goblin fell into the Pit of Despair (a bridge connected to a pressure switch). A member of the militia, apparently seeking some item once dropped in the tunnel, ran along until he met one goblin. After a tense moment, he caved in the goblin's head with one deft blow before retreating back into the fortress. Just as the rest of the goblin forces passed by, their fallen comrade sprang to his feet, a freshly animated undead horror, and slaughtered one their ranks. This goblin, in turn, quickly animated and set upon the others behind him, and so forth, until the siege was broken and the only moving things in the tunnels were the shambling horrors of evil.

All in all, not too bad for the fort's first siege.

A dwarven diplomatic vampire from a different realm just arrived...while the web-spitting flying slug was still outside!

That's not going to be very good for relations if he dies... sally forth, my crossbow-armed militia dwarves!

10th year, No goblins any more.
Maybe I should retire.

The caravan was attacked by buzzards, so I reloaded the old save.
It is quite annoying to have such accidents. What's the fun spending half an hour viewing their goods only to be ruined by wild animals?

Business as usual but a civilian was attacked by a cave hat this time before military got to it.
The bat broke his knee as well as cut it open, also cut up his left hand so he can't stand or grasp.
He got sutured up and decided he wanted to crawl 40z levels down the stairs to get booze.

Another dwarf got attacked by an olm, so the dwarf dropped what he was doing and beat the olm to death with his fists, he eventualy got tired but by then 3 other civilians joined in on he beating. The carpenter who originaly got attacked was found to have military experience as a mace dwarf, so I assigned him to my spear/auxiliary squad and gave him a silver mace

While I really like all of the new features of the most recent version, I missed my dwarves from my 34.11 fortress.  I decided to dust that one off and tinker around some more.  Right now, it's a bit overwhelming.  I'm going to be VERY careful with levers that I'm not sure are connected to what!

LOL of course... it would be an honor.

I'm new to succession forts in general, yes, but do all forts designed by multiple overseers inevitably degenerate into a body-filled labyrinth of chaos and despair like this? Or is this just a Battlefailed thing?

There isn't much middle ground between killed-by-dragon and never-seen-by-dragon.

Lividgloves was besieged by 10 living humans, 39 undead, and two necromancers from the local tower.  I was staring at the boiling horde of undead, wondering wtf to do now, and then I get the message "Invaders!  Drive them away!" twice.

Turns out the two necromancers had snuck away from their legions of undead and living servants and tried to get into the fort.  They had discovered my cage traps.  I laughed so hard I thought I might hurt myself.  They were unceremoniously stripped of their belongings (because I want a slab for display SO BAD... sadly they left it at home) and then they were both sent to swim in the sweet blood of Armok.

Now I just have to figure out how to convince the huge crowds in the south that they want to path towards the fort and cage traps... currently they are just circling down there going nowhere.  It's harshing my buzz.

Pop. 185, Late Summer of 361 (Year 110)

Instead of the usual artifact gear, Sakzul Channeltree, one of the youngest members of the fortress churned out this figurine with a nice bit of history.

That one of the mentioned dwarves was named Urist only improves the artifact further.

On the item is an image of a dwarf and an elephant. The elephant is striking down the dwarf.

For old times' sake.
