Two goblins slaughter my champion and his entire squad of well trained dwarves, militia comes along all just adequately trained, they all die, then a random hauler carrying a wooden shield to a stockpile comes through and shield bashes them both to death with one thwap each... Welp, off to the molten mother with him!

Are you kidding? This is basically a dwarven superhero, who's beating up crime too tough for the military. He's freaking hardcore.

Not sure why but the guy had amazing physical stats, no lava resistance though. But hey he found out where the candy in the map was, sharing a wall with the magma tube but in line with a route my weavers go down sometimes, they were just missing it! He truly is a hero. Still wondering why he had such great stats.

still wondering why you melted him

Every once in a while the game makes somebody with insanely high stats for no apparent reason other than "why not." This sounds like one of those cases.

For my forts narrative. Each year a truly examplery dwarf who contributes something great to the fort, whether that be an artifact or a massive feat of martial prowess, or discovering a vein of aluminum, is returned to the molten mother. It is the greatest honor. Sadly my mayor is so useless he hasn't been a contributor to much except banning the export of rings.

You know what? I've heard of crazier challenges. Hell, I've done crazier challenges (or rather, attempted, it never seems to work out well).

A Forgotten Beast entered my fort.

It was a giant, three-eyed, feathered shrimp.

A fucking shrimp.

It didn't even have anything special, just a thirst/hunger for warm blood.

A single crossbow bolt knocked it down, and a few pounds with a +steel war hammer+ bruised its brain, causing instant death.

That was the dumbest Forgotten Beast I ever fought. No one got hurt fighting it.

Though honestly, I'm not sure why you in particular sig me so much compared to everyone else.

Because you say things that make me laugh (I was so tempted to sig that, not gonna lie)

lol yeah.

Honestly I don't know what to say to that other than mention how flattered I am. I hate to get all sentimental, but it feels good to hear that you actually make people laugh every now and again.

Moody dwarf needs shells.

I have no shells.

All of the fishing spots are empty, even in the cavern.

What's the DFHack command to spawn a raw pond turtle shell?
Not certain how to do with createitem
||
But, you can create an unit that yields shell (i.e. spawnunit GIANT_SNAPPING_TURTLE MALE) and then call exterminate him

And then have dwarf bucher him

||

=)

Alternatively, you could alternate forbidding other items each month if your caravans can bring shell-bearing creatures.

Yeah, spawning a turtle is probably a better way to go. Createitem can't create CORPSE or CORPSEPIECE items, because those will crash DF when created in custom reactions (which is what createitem uses under the hood). At least, that's what I remember hearing from Quietust.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

Thanks for the commands, but I already made a workaround by filling in a hole with water and having a fisherdwarf catch mountains of pond turtles.

I think the dwarf ended up making a candy grate. Useful for when I open up the circus.
