I'd imagine the game now keeps track of those infected goblins, no?
that calls for some ‼SCIENCE‼

The game does keep track of infected creatures, as the creature becomes historical when bitten. Those goblins might show up in a future siege.

Then the next siege comes and it's just dozens of armored werehorses.

Pvt. pirate: I don't belive they "turn" in the conventional way, though the w.g. Rampages might occure... be interresting to look at there lives in legends mode a couple years down the road.

Yes.

No. Beast rampages, aside from the ones that attack your fort, don't happen after worldgen. Since these goblins aren't marked as enemies of their civilization, they'll live as normal unless they show up at your fort again during a full moon.

ok, is it just me or are you contradicting yourself here? you tell Pvt. Pirate that they *can* in fact, slaughter people in there goblin pits, bu in the same post you state that they will live normal, unturned lives unless they siege your fort again. im confused.

Just finished my grand entrance. A sheer white cliff several 'z's deep, statues of Dwarves holding swords point-to-ground flanking a steep path to the main entrance. At its foot, a secondary fortress for military training and above ground farming is in the process of being built. It has no underground access.

Aaaand, I just got my first siege. What military I have doesn't have any equipment. The goblins are currently admiring my grand facade and wondering why the locals decided to besmirch it with a raised drawbridge.

The elves came, and brought with them a giant grizzly bear. Guess whose militia commander has an awesome war-trained pet now?

Created a bigger dorm and turned the old one into a hospital. I'm sure the patients won't mind being stuck between a tavern and the chicken coop.

There's now a fully functional road to the trade depot, with statues flanking it. Interestingly, a lot of them are of mussels, a human who tamed grasshoppers, and the deity of muck.

Got a huge peasant wave, combined with some births, and now I have more than fifty dwarves in the fortress.

CraftRiddle is having more tantrums, more Dwarfs feeling harassed, falling into deep depressions, getting into fights and another Dwarf was placed in jail.  Well, tied up with a rope.  Damaged one of the drawbridges.  And somebody hit a baby with a ladder.

I remember once somebody comparing the Dwarfs to Vikings but I am starting to think my Dwarfs are Russians.  Drinking, complaining, getting into fistfights with pigs.  Not joking.  One of them got into a fistfight with a pig.  Punched a boar a couple of times and walked off. 

We have only had TWO werebeasts attacks and both were killed.  Only three of my own citizens are dead.  They should be HAPPY!  True, we live on the surface.  I wish rain did not seem to have so much weight on their emotional state.  Rain seems to be causing more trouble than anything else.  All of them can craft and all the adults are in the military.  They have a ton of booze, they craft things, they learn new skills, they own stuff.  Yet many of them think their lives are living nightmares.  What?!?!

Is this Dwarf Fortress or Metro 2033?  When did the Dark Ones show up?   ::)

Just watched a dwarf punch a minotaur so hard their ear exploded, twisting the head and neck so hard that it ripped the skin.

Then they scratched the Minotaur so hard that it tore the muscle, chipped the bone, and broke the upper arm.

I was able to make a dwarf pick weapon trap components and start carrying to a stockpile, stop midway, bring back to depot, start going to the stockpile again, repeat. He did it until he got thirsty, went off, came back, did it again. Then electricity went off and I can't replicate it to give to toady, it is so weird. They were, like, 9 tiles from each other. Maybe there is something about the shape if the stockpile? It was a fresh world, nothing built yet...

Finally got the isolated tower built on the surface for my about to die of old age citizens being turned into vampires to live in. Moved in the first residents, a pair of 90+ humans and then I remembered I already had another vampire. A goblin citizen used long ago for an experiment and locked in a cage, put on display and forgotten.

I moved her to the tower and had her released. She had spent the last ten years in that cage and was very happy to be free. She made herself some new clothes from the stock in the tower and quickly cheered up even more after spending time in the tavern level chatting telling stories with the humans. Everything was going great until I decided to help the festivities by naming the goblin and a human as tavern keepers to access the booze stockpile set aside for future vampire dwarves.

See I forgot that the goblin was an alcoholic who loved to start brawls when drunk. I forgot that the entire experiment had been to see if getting such a goblin drunk and depriving them of someone to punch and a statue to topple would get them cursed, obviously it does. Filled with joy at how wonderful everything was going for her now she hauled off and nailed my useful human (the other is a monster hunter) right in the head, snapped his neck like a twig. Now he can't use his arms or legs and he can't breathe. Only he can't die. The goblin got so drunk she fell down next to him flopping like a fish also unable to breathe but in her case it'll wear off.

So now not only is one of the humans an immortal vegetable, my alcoholic vampire goblin is locked in a sealed tower without anyone left who can serve her a drink.
