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.

Yes, it took a while

I just love when miners get stuck in their own digging. Recently I was testing screw pumps, but always at least one citizen was stuck in the cistern pit. They're doing this on purpose, I'm telling you!

In the most anticlimactic siege ever, a single marksdwarf drove a siege force of over forty goblin invaders away in a panicked rout. My waiting meleedwarves never even got to see the enemy. One would think immortal embodiments of evil would be made of sterner stuff, really.

In other news, a dog just gave birth to a litter of puppies. This wouldn't be newsworthy as such, but all male dogs in the fortress were gelded years ago. I have no idea what happened, but I'm not ruling out that the mother was impregnated when the human caravan carried a caged dog past it.

caged animals cant cause or acquire new pregnancies. One of your migrants might have had a dog you missed.

Tried to kill a siege using a drawbridge, a river and no other defence systems save for a horde of war dogs I had due to a dogsplosion.

Your strength has been broken.

They can at least cause them.  Giant Lions don't just show up in migrant waves and I had kittens before I got around to uncrating the male I got from the elves in my current fort.
