I was playing the game, minding my own business, kind of bored, when I noticed the red C of combat.  It was the Forgotten Beast of whatever, a winged creature of ash. 

It got into my tunnels, past the traps, and ran into one of my Dwarves who happened to be part of the military, hauling on his time off, and with a weapon on his person.  Less then half-a-page of combat.  Off came a wing and then the Dwarf smashed the main body with one blow.  Then he went on his way.  In fact the combat was over by the time I had noticed the C.

So I found a pile of ash and a wing in one of the stairways.  And the Dwarf went back to business, totally unharmed.  That was the shortest fight against a Forgotten Beast I have ever had in one of my games.  Even the one made out of vomit lasted longer.

It's fully logical that ash beasts result in short fights. "The Forgotten Beast has come! A winged creature of ash!"

*flump*

"The Forgotten Beast of Ash has been slain!"




Now, if it was made of ash wood, however...

Decided to make a hospital with an underground cistern, decided to multilayer the operation so that the river would flood the soon to be farms then channel the water down below draining the newly created fields (using a series of floodgates) and thus filling the hospitals cistern... Well so I thought. Farms flooded nicely at 2-3 then drained them... WAAAYYY down below the aqueducts were 7/7 and filled the cistern and never drained, they just plugged up. Fields did not drain properly at all so I figured what the heck, make a second large cistern and drain the excess... Well when that poor, poor unknowing dwarf made the hole to fill that new cistern... BOOM! The whole cistern and room filled INSTANTLY 7/7 and he drowned. Now making a third, HUGE cistern, going to see if that works, if not... Glitched and abandon. They were doing so well too... Meanwhile dwarf digger #2 is busy and will find out shortly if this ends well or... Well you know the rest.

So during a routine goblin siege, I noticed one of my 2 legendary Weaponsmiths was in a fey mood, with three shiny blue wafers in his forge. Grateful for fresh live fire targets for my all female scholar Xbow squad, I finish of the siege and wait with baited breath for Sigun's glorious culmination of his life's work.

And then this:
     

My "F*** YOU SIGUN!" resounded through the neighborhood and startled my wife. Keep in mind, this is after a candy ring, a candy amulet, AND a candy mace. At first, Sigun was going to die from magma, but then I thought of a better plan. Burrow him in, lock him off, and build an arena. He has until I finish my inn to forge his own armor, and train himself. The inn's opening ceremony will be one on one gladiatorial combat with the previous live-fire targets, culminating in a battle with my captured dragon. If he lives, then he will have proved his creations worth. If not, well, he should have made something useful. Either way, I'm sure it will provide excellent entertainment for the opening festivities.

i decided to embark on a glacier just for laughs, and im shocked that people would decide to move into a fort thats entrance is just a shack and theres more people in the military than there are beds, as well as constant snowstorms, yetis, kobolds, etc.

My tavern's off to a good start, had a bunch of mercenaries come through, none proposed to stay. We've sent another survey corp into the caverns, to clear out the pack of trolls clinging about near the silk supply. Another goat offering has gone into the volcano, and more of the inner wall is being finished. Housing for the upper class is done being shaped, though the smoothing has yet to begin as the dining hall is only half finished. The pathways to the ground level have finally been finished, and a building is being placed around an area to act as the farm center.

New fort, got a migrant wave I found a little odd: Migrant wave of twenty, only two guys in it. Just brushed it off and went on my way. Then, stuff got weirder as I kept getting cancellation and pause spam: Rimtar-Olin-Datan-Litash-etc. cancels job: Seeking infant! What? This kept going on until everyone who arrived in that migrant wave dropped a fresh baby in the statue garden, not even officially part of the fort yet, still new arrivals... I'm serious, there were babies everywhere! The migrant wave inflated to 20 dwarves and 18 tumors! What were they doing on the way here?!?

Crimsontomb pyramid is progressing! Only 40+ laborers of various skill were slain during to random assortment of ambushes, accidents and starvation, but after seven long years we've finally finished the first and the largest level of the pyramid.

From now on, there will be less work per level. Long live Crimsontomb!

I swear my fortress is cursed or something and is some kind of fun repellant.

Although I have a population of more than 160 citizens and more than 80k exported wealth, I've yet to get a single megabeast attack, a siege or even some minor harassment from nearby hostile civs.

The first forgotten beast that showed up was a giant quail with lidless eyes. It didn't even manage to get into my fort - it fought some draugr marksmen down in the first cavern layer, managing to kill them off, before wandering off into the unexplored areas. Later I found out it was killed by a regular geist - how exactly, I have no idea. I dont know where the geist is either - my dwarves made statues of the encounter, but I couldn't find the named geist anywhere - I don't know if he/she is dead or anything.

Next up, the thing that is happening currently - merchants from my civ came, but no trading took place - why? They were unpacking for the entire duration of their stay. I have no idea why.

Lastly, another FB came around, this one from the bottom-most cavern layer. It fought some magma crabs, which did what they usually do and spat magma at it. It managed to kill them off before it burned to death.

I have two adamantine spires that I could dig out and possibly unleash the circus.
On the other hand...I had this idea in my head of digging them out when a siege comes over. I'd have my military stall whatever race decides to try and get me, have some miners dig out the spires, then barricade some survivors in a safehouse that I dug out underground, only letting them out after the carnage is over.

i ran out of alcohol thanks to unluckiness in a glacier biome and now everyone is dehydrated and dying while im making a last ditch effort to breach the caverns

EDIT:it's pretty much over, everyone kinda died, still proud because it was a first time glacier run and i ran on for more than a year.

Hey guys, I dont want to create a new post so I decided to ask it here.
I've assigned my minners as part of a squad and designate an invader to be killed, but after that they just wont dig anymore.
I disabanded the squad, forbid the picks and unforbid to make sure it wasnt just a glitch, unfortuntly they still refuse to dig...
Any tips for this, please?

You did most of the needed steps, but also need to disable the mining labor then enable it.
