Gravelsears lost 5 legendary warriors to a siege.  Not to the siege itself, though; oh no.  That was the usual gobbo rabble, 30 of the greenies with 20 troll auxiliaries.  Oh no, that's not the problem at all.

The problem is that they were cave adapted.  And the sun came out.  So my precious little steel-clad, adamantine-armed princelings, Avatars of Death that they were, STOPPED FIGHTING TO LIE AROUND AND PUKE AND WHINE LIKE LITTLE GIRLS.

I allowed them to be buried... but I swear I wanted to throw them in the magma with the gobbos and put their slabs in the trash heap.  Useless gits.

So this just happened, in the middle of a hill titan siege:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

That's some House of Cards shit right here.

What should I do with her?
She likes picks, leggings, coffins (no suprise here) and ballista parts.
She is  an expert intimidator, persuader, negotiator, comedian and pacifier.
Master Furnance operator and a great Weaponsmith.
But she also values sacrifice, so maybe I should sacrifice her for the good of the fortress?

Things Bastiongate Taught Me #4: Always Put Your Barracks Outside With No Roof

Learned that the hard way, myself. But yes: Now melee always practices in an open-to-the-sky outdoor barracks, and archery squads all have to take a turn on patrol duty.

Is this biome reanimating? I really don't want to know what happens when "absurd numbers of megabeasts" is combined with "reanimating biomes".

Glass blocks.

for added security, make your barracks in shallow soil, channel out the barrack area similar to how you'd expose a subsurface farm to the sunlight, and then floor it over with glass blocks.

Nope. Any roof counts as blocking light and protects from sun. Sorry.

Might be imagining this, but if you reveal it to the sun and then roof it over, doesn't it still think it's revealed to light?

I have vague recollections of reading that somewhere.

Works for plants, not for dwarves. I learned the hard way.

hunh.  So it doesnt.  I just tried it infort.  A retractable bridge might, however.

Still securable and you can selective use it.

Above ground inside prevents cave adaption from getting worse, but they have to be outside to be cured and vomiting.

As much as I hate to say it, I think you're having a bit too much fun with this game.

Let me tell you how much fun I'am having right now:
This fortress is meant as a giantic "F-you" to the elves. I built it right outside their giantic settlement (The biggest one on this world, at least)
It has 7 z-levels high, 3 tiles wide walls, and a 10 z-levels high tower. All made of wood.
The stocks screen says it used ~4600 logs, with ~2700 logs still laying around. Elves already sent their diplomat.
When the come, I will show them who's boss. With wooden bolts. (I have silver, copper, iron and steel, but let's not waste good stuff on them. I might use some unicorn bone bolts though)
I wonder if they will feel betrayed by the trees the love so much.

As a bonus, If a large enough siege comes, I may erect a phallic monument, made out of wood of course, in the middle of my fortress.

I'm having this much fun without even reaching magma.

DF is great  :D

ED: Thanks for correcting my spelling. English is not my primary language

*Phallic.

Anyway, all that is just good clean fun, deforestation and war and obscenity.

I meant the stuff about... snakes...
