A cougar and three hunting dogs have been having a fight for several months now.

Not only has the cougar killed none of the dogs, but it has never suffered more than a bruised gut.

The battle has raged for so long and none of my actual hunters has come to kill the thing that both the cougar and hunting dogs have scars that have healed from since the battle started.

(Meanwhile the hunters are busy chasing owls and albatrosses.)

I had my first titan attack in my 1x1 micro fort today. I sent all of my military dwarves to swarm it at once. Somehow, we pulled through. After, I decided to look at the logs and find which dwarf preformed the killing blow. One Kol Cheerfultome was the killer, and despite his name, he managed to finish off the creature in the most METAL way possible:



For the record, this was a titan made of Bismuth. In a fit of fury, Kol gripped a head made from PURE METAL in his teeth and tore the creature's head off, killing it instantly.



I think I've found my fortress's first Champion.

second year in my fort, late winter:
Some troglodyts have shown up and attacked my dwarfs. Two of them died and many are wounded.
So I most find a new broker. Chief mediecal dwarf is mortally wounded. Hope he survive!

The troglodytes were killed by my military dwarfs with no problem.

But nothing else interesting happened this year. A mayor were elected and a bit boring managing stuff.
The goblins still wait in their fortress with unknown reason. They send nobody to kidnapp my childs or to killmy dwarfs.
The elves stay away too. :(

Late Year 253.
Fort is 112 strong, with a few recent attacks dipping us down slightly.
Food stores are good.
We've got several legendary engravers, stonemasons, a carpenter, and miners.

One of our engravers got heavily injured when the drawbridge catapulted them up in the air after an attack by a were-creature. The creature didn't attack any dwarves, mercifully, however my botched attempt to rush everyone inside resulted in a few dead dwarves, and a few heavily injured. We have a hospital for treatment, and it is well stocked, we also have doctors, so I am hopeful for at least partial recovery of this dwarf.

That's really unlucky to be honest. In my experience, troglodytes are almost never hostile and seem to run away from dwarves if they pay attention at all. It might be interesting to check the combat logs to see if the troglodytes struck first or if the dwarves attacked. I've had situations where visitors have shown off how opposed to nature they are by mass attacking any bunny that enters the room, and I'm pretty sure that some dwarves will just attack for the fun of it depending on their personality.

Iirc, underground clever creature behaviour depends on how their encounters with your people have gone in the past, including in the worldgen. They've won, they're aggressive, they've lost, they flee.

That's excellent. There are few sights that are simultaneously more idiotic and impressive than a true master of the Dwarven biting technique at work. See if you can request a custom statue featuring your dwarf, the titan, and an image of teeth.

Ah, new migrants. And one has two kills to her name already. Good good.

Hmm. Two dwarves?

Turns out her loving parents brought her up in the Dark Fortress, Thieflearns, where her father was forcibly taken at the age of 3.

She murdered a dwarf when she was 14 (poor old Thob Indigoblockades who only moved to the Dark Fortress so he could marry his sweetheart, apparently) then another at 16. Just the way it goes if you want to get by in goblin society.

In the year 332, she suddenly decided to leave the goblins, rejoin dwarvern civilization and come to live with us.
Novice butcher. She'll fit right in...

Really? With such an awesome backstory, you would hope she'd have better skills...

Ha! Yeah. That's exactly what I thought. Murder gets you very little in the way of skills, apparently. Novice Butcher, Novice Shearer (trolls?), Novice Brewer.

She brought her husband with her (novice butcher, novice shearer, novice cook). Worshiper of the giant rat deity The Turquoise of Coal. Dreams of ruling the world.
Can't wait to see what their kids turn out like...

edit:
Oh wait, they actually brought their 4 children along with them. Only two of them dream of ruling the world. That's not so bad. :)

My dwarfs attack them every time. Current it is a bit bugged. The troglodyte hangs on a wall and my dwarfs underneath him.
The troglodyte beats them until they fall down where they scramble on the ground because they are heavily wounded.
Problem: Nearly ALL my dwarfs stuck on this wall and can't climb down.

I've tried to build a ramp and a staircase up but the construction gets ever suspendet with no reason.
So all my dwarf will die when they don't climb down. The Troglodyte gets never attacked and my military can't reach him.
How I get the dwarfs away?

Mr Ettin attacked my fort. Before I could scramble a squad, Mr Ettin ambles into one of my cage traps intended for the occasional elephants. Thank you Mr Ettin, that was a very fierce threat you posed.

Mr Ettin has been transferred in his cage to the candy spire waiting room, and will act as a greeter for the clown car.

Climbing is currently pretty broken all things considered, so if I had to guess all your dwarves are holding onto this wall for dear life. The solution to this problem is to mine away the wall they are holding, but just remember that if they're too far up, they will die from ground impact or at least take some injuries.

Ettins are, in my experience, wimps. I've had minotaurs massacre early forts, cyclopsi? Cylopses? Cyclops'? destroy well built forts and Giants always give a decent fight... Ettin? I've seen one die to a set of wooden spears in a danger tavern. And this was before they were made dangerous.

I seem to be having a run of wimpy foes lately. Last few forgotten beasts have included a water blob with a poisonous bite and a feathered slug which seemed to boil itself in its own secretions.

Of course, now I've said that...
