I don't bother with moats and ditches and whatnot anymore. As DwArfY says, they tend to catch a lot more dwarves than they do goblins...

Military and magma-flooders. That's all the defenses any fort needs.  :D

Well, darn. I dug so deep (accidentally breaching the caverns in the process) and it appears to be for naught at the moment. Some of the space that I had reserved for a huge chasm could be used for a drowning trap though; I need a cistern anyways since this biome freezes in the winter.

You could fill some of the extra space with a couple of those aforementioned magma-flooders?

Yeah, but I have yet to even reach magma in any fort ever. This is my first for that even reached the caverns and it was mostly an accident.

currently my fort, previously home to 40 odd dwarf citizens and about 20 adventurers bound for the caverns, is reduced to just 3 dwarves and a baby (and about 10 useless semidepressed adventurers) not because of some siege or cavern monstrosity but because i missed one farmer having been bit by a wereskunk when it attacked

the 3 remaining dwarves are on fulltime slab engraving duty to keep the ghosts at bay...but it's only a matter of time until they succumb

only other enemy sentient i ever saw was a kobold thief that made off with a *goat bone bolt*...my civ seems to be at peace with both the neighbouring goblinds and the inhabitants of the dark tower, how does that even happen?

Since my last few encounters with werecreatures, anybody that tangles with them and gets so much as a scratch is either expelled or left for dead, unhappy thoughts be damned.

My last encounter with a weremouse has unfortunately killed some important dwarves, so the remainder are left wearing too many hats; most of my vital industries are split between two or three, one of which is also my highest-skilled miner.

I detest werecreatures so much i dont let them escape if i can prevent it. If a Hopplehead of mine gets bitten he'll get locked in a tiny room in the visitor entrance and if confirmed a werebeast his room will be opened up the next time a siege comes around.
Same with spotted vampires.

A migrant wave just about tripled my population, from 17 to almost 60. Once I have all the new bedrooms constructed, I'll be able to start my military and murderize the gray langurs that have been annoying me since I arrived.

And finally get all the trade goods inside before they rot or get stolen

trade goods don't rot if they're inside a depot

After the fire had burned down all of the wooden next boxes on the surface, Mottled Petrel was reluctant to replace them with more wooden nest boxes. Instead, he placed the remaining store of wooden nest boxes in the dormitory for any aspiring koopa mothers.

The nest boxes were immediately overrun by helmet snakes.

Oh. I had to deconstruct a Depot to force the merchants to leave, they were stuck despite having plenty of paths to all edges of the map. The food they left behind then rotted. That was the source of my confusion.

Ahh okay.

Yeah, I've been having issues with merchants getting stuck, or moving super slowly...

just after i retired my previous fort, i did some adventuring and stumbled across our queen in a refugee camp on her way to said previous fort. at the time, our civilisation consisted of just that fort and one random hillocks nearby (no mountainhome, i think it got done by a forgotten beast in worldgen)

been playing my current fort for ~10 years. poking around in the civilization/world info screen, turns out that previous fort has since in turn been overrun by goblins, and the hillocks now belongs to the other dwarven civ.  now, the only other location in my civilisation is a "dark dwarven pits", so i guess the previous fort got off one successful invasion before falling

i was wondering why i haven't had any visits from the local necromancer tower since the first year, and it turns out we're at peace

this turned out to be more of a "what's going on in your world"

I made a giant room and had my dwarves engrave every wall and floor. I started looking through the pictures they made and noticed a couple of them were social commentary on me firing the head of the militia.
I gotta say, I was not expecting this.

Was he a ghost when you fired him, or when the engraving was made?
