My unruly dwarves usually volunteer for naked cavern/hell mapping duty in Dwarven Geography Department's special one-dwarf squads. It pacifies them quite nicely.

I usually have the caverns explored as soon as I breach them. When I have unruly dwarves, I replace the usual wimpy captain of the guard with the beefiest dwarf in the fortress. The troublemaker is then beaten to death. Problem solved!

Ah, but mere mapping doesn't mean the end of science. There's tagging Blind Cave Ogres, counting Voracious Cave Crawler populations, supervising Cave Crocodile breeding grounds... and of course testing out the syndrome effects of that new FB that just entered the cavern. Lots of exciting things to do in the Geography Department's heroic Dwarven Extreme Depths Defence Operations Research Force (D.E.D.D.O.R.F)!

But yes, every fort has its own stories, horrors, and delights.
Speaking of, I still have an insane axedwarf chained up in the justice tower basement.
I'm thinking of building a new justice centre under the where the palace is going, should I turn the old one into a hospital so our fallen hero can receive the care and respect he deserves, or turn it into a zoo?

I have decided to declare war on humans by killing the guild representative. I want to test out these traps, and I made the mistake of making a beast-heavy world that does not contain goblins. If it works on humans, awesome. I'll then move on to bigger targets.

Been away forever. Started a new fort- finally has iron. No coal, but it's in a jungle, so that's not too much of a problem, though balancing charcoal on one side and tons of furnaces on the other is a pain. Trying to anger the elves to fast-track the training of my military. Equipped them all with steel now, all of it high level. Lots of masterworks. Just one problem: a vampire came in with the latest migrant wave, and killed off some fisherdwarf of no other skills. After half an hour of searching through my fortress for the one who had not recently had a drink, I found the vampire and rapidly incarcerated her. Now I'm going to make a few more vampires out of otherwise useless Urist McFishers and Urist McNobodies.

My plan for finding the vampire? My partially-cave-adapted dwarves had recently run out of all forms of alcohol, and been reduced to trekking to the stream for a drink. This stream had been polluted with vomit: therefore any dwarf would have the "disgusted when forced to drink vomit" thought. Except the Great Marksdwarf I had gotten with tons of novice skills and a few more "former member of" tags than other dwarves, as well as tons of absurdly high social skills. I swear I thought as I checked that one that she might be an issue sometime. Thing was, she was pretty old and also had no children, which was odd as I have 4-6 babies every spring, lol, and this fort has had no single dwarves come in, all of them have spouses and hordes of 2-year-olds in tow. And since I locked her in a room and set her training .... she's not hungry, thirsty, or biting any Legendary Armorsmiths/Weaponsmiths... which is good as I have just one who is soon to be Legendary in both. Just have to get the steel battle axes, shields, and armor sets deposited to get her and her soon-to-be-roommates equipped properly. Can't wait to see how this goes. I think I'll build a second tavern and experiment to see if bartenders really do serve alcohol to vampires. If so, I'll simply add more vampires to that population to suppress their need for alcohol. One eternal bartender and 10 eternal superdwarvenly supersoldiers? Heck yeah! Next migrant wave has been assigned already, lol. Just need to equip these dwarves before consigning them to vampirism. Now ... wooden spikes, or iron spikes? These are important questions ... mwahahaha - also the elves have brought me a single rattlesnake, and also a gray langur who tore a goblin snatcher apart. Monkeys are useful. So I'm trying to steal from the elves, offer them wood etc. to anger them and get me some swordbait.

While his father, the baron/king consort, is yelling at people because he wants a silver weapon rack on a map with no silver, I take a look at the prince and see this:

Great. The prince is only a year old and he's already an egomaniac.[/spoiler]

Still playing that fort with the line of monarchs who are all killed by the same titan.

Just got news that the latest queen was killed. Not sure about an heir.

Goblins took the capital. She died in a duel. There was no heir.

Game of Thrones level stuff going on here. The real question is who is now King/Queen? Legends mode detected no new one.

You'll probably find out when she inevitable crops up in the fort.

Project Strip-Mine the World is at an end, along with my noble fortress. Alas, all that diggin' out and resulting stone hauling has brought the FPS reliably into the low single digits, even after carefully readjusting traffic designations, setting up minecart checkpoints, slaughtering domestic animals and wildlife, keeping most dorfs indoors, and finally using dfhack to destroy...really quite a lot of items. One day, I hope to have a fortress held up by a single wall, surrounded on all sides by a hundred Z-levels of void, with the magma sea at the bottom. On that day, a single bridge would connect the fort to the rind of land surrounding the map and leading to the outside world. This is not that day.

Farewell, Scribedboots. I salute you and your brave dwarves, from the 4-dwarf family of s Ritasreg (the first of the family to distinguish himself)--none of whom is in the military, but *each* of whom has at one point sustained a major injury singlehandedly slaying a semimegabeast--to Kema Lessentwists, the wolverine woman scholar who bit a berserk human bard to death in defense of the local tavern.
