Helmsdreamy, with its history of a total fort kill and a Concerningly Extensive crypt (with 519 coffins), seems to have stabilized for now.

also i should clarify that there were more coffins before the dragon came and smashed a bunch of them
reminds me to build a secondary and tertiary gate to the main entryway - you cannot have too much redundancy in defences.


so the outpost liasion proposed the title of barony to my tiny little meetinghall in the side of a hill - we're basically still just a hillocks of 10 dorfs.
also 7 migrants showed up:
a dyer with her criminal husband and their 5 children.
i don't know what to say... or what to do... should i build a prison right away?

No. It means that he forgot to stop using his assumed identity after spying on the elves/the goblins/the humans/the other dwarven civilizations due to a bug. He's an absolutely loyal citizen of your fort, but his name, preferences etc. are fake and you won't get a notification when he throws a tantrum.

No siege in a few years. Iíve spent the last few years amassing wealth so I might become the Mountainhome eventually. There is literally one other Civ on this tiny, tiny island and itís the Goblins. My militia is nine Dwarves whoíve done nothing but train for several years, and theyíre incredibly happy, since theyíre all Martial arts nuts. They all have steel equipment, so I could probably fend off whatever the Goblins throw at me, but I literally dug out a 3 z-level tall room and re-walled it with marble blocks to create a Throne room for the Monarch, and itís floored with even more marble, so what they send next could well be the death of me if they can get in.

!!FUN!! May be coming.

I deconstructed a staircase to stop dwarves from using my old fort entrance because it wasn't secure and caused caravan issues.

One of the rock blocks fell three z-levels and instantly killed a legandary miner by exploding his lower body.

It was inevitable.

I got some resident monster slayers once I breached the caverns and one came unarmed. The human wrestler is now down their wrestling crundles and troglodytes. Kinda funny when you think about it. He travels far and wide to my fortress, just to get very close to creepy underground monsters.
I wonder how long he will live once he finds a troll down there.

Speaking of trolls, once I found a troll in someone's bedroom. The citizen that lived there was standing next to him, waiting, presumably for his bed to be freed. Militia took care of the troll, at cost of horrible mess in the bedroom afterward. Great experience, though.

That's... Too smart for a dorf. I have strong suspicion he might be an imposter. Keep eye on him...

You mean you told him where to dig his way out? Or did he actually climb out a pre-existing chute or something?

My fortress has been prosperous. Mostly because I blatantly cheated to get a fuckton of materials for free. But also because we havent been attacked by anything. And I havent accidentally killed anybody.

I'm still using my weird "bovine people" that have both intelligent citizen and unintelligent livestock castes. I'm doing a breeding program to get the strongest possible individuals, so killing off any that are less than "incredibly muscular." Despite runninjg this for 3 years now, and all the living candidates left being incredibly muscular, 90% of children born to them are not. It is unfortunate, but hey, lotsa meat to go around. They've given birth to 3 intelligent children so far. I lcoked two of them in and let them die of thirst because they were weak. Third one has really good stats so she's grown up (in one year, I didnt give the different castes different child tags) and is working as a miner for the moment.

I designated the area around his trapped position, causing him to eventually do said designation

But took him while, right? Well, then he's completely dorfy. Diagnosis says your miner is in normal health condition.
