I'm in the old new version still, and my troglodyte had a baby. My wife keeps looking at me in a disconcerting fashion. I mean, sure it was in a cage, but it's entirely possible it was pregnant before that.

Seriously, though, didn't know trogs bred in DF.

I had a trog give birth while scaling a wall. Just before one of my crossdorfs loosed a bolt at her. The trog baby drowned.

They said the walls were impregnable. You didn't have to prove me wrong by giving birth on them.

Things in my fortress have gone pear-shaped really fast.

So here I am with 109 or so dwarves and human mercenaries, minding our own business. We've began pumping out iron for the forges so we can arm our first melee squad, and brewing drinks to quench my citizens' relentless thirst. I've got a 10-man squad that's 70% human, as yet unbloodied.

I knew things would get bad really quickly. I just didn't expect it to be this terrible.

First, a Desert Titan with web-shooting powers showed up and went through my pastures, killing all my animals. I got everyone inside in time and got the gates up, so my people are OK. That's fine, I can deal with this. I've pierced the caverns so worse comes to worst, I can harvest plants inside.

Then came the goblins.

2 and a half pages of goblins, mounted on beak dogs. Trolls. A couple of humans with gobbo names. Half are melee, half are ranged. Right now, as I type this, the Titan and the gobbos are about to make contact. On reflection, this is very much like Boatmurdered, with the elephants and the goblins.

Except I have no magma.

EDIT: The Titan fell to the goblin attack, but not before it killed two goblins and caused the rest to run for it. The only remnant of the siege is the goblin lasher that killed the Titan.

I'm sending out my Varangian Guard to engage the greenskin.

Here's the relevant part.

Spoiler: Combat Logs (click to show/hide)

UPDATE: Turns out there's a reason why the lasher got the kill. Sending in my hurriedly-assembled crossbow troops to back up my melee squad ended the fight with seven dead (including the lasher) and several injured. The siegebreaker goes to Jasro Beruothla, a human mercenary spearman.

And I haven't even completed the walls of my fortress yet.

So the titan was too busy breaking grips on itself and grabbing others to strike anyone but those 2 goblins? GEEZ. He'd probably have been better off maiming their limbs and then going for their heads. Also, whips are OP please nerf.

The ullung is a large, hand-held curved glass horn that has it's pitch adjusted with a slide.

The one my fey dwarf just made is leather.

You should probably make a ticket for that. It's totally understandable that it would happen, what with how instruments used to work, but yeah, not really in line with the way they work currently.

Maybe its masterful craftsdwarfship is what allows it to be constructed of leather. It would certainly make it unique and unusual!

I started a new fort with basic embark. My fortress is  about 20 levels deep. I have found no metal whatsoever. The only non-origin metal i have is from when i traded a metric buttload of stone crafts away for like 2 picks and 3 swords. I am so freakin dead
