Confronted by a dog
« on: June 25, 2015, 05:49:49 am »

I had retired my legendary swordsman, dodger, armour user human necromancer after claiming ownership of a town. After spending some time within fortress mode, and then returning to adventure mode I found I was unable to play my character. After doing some research I discovered four dogs had confronted my rule in insurrection, and defeated my grand adventurer. They weren't particularly good dogs either, just your regular run-of-the-mill dog.

Has anyone else experienced something similar? I wasn't aware dogs could hold insurrections, let alone slay an immortal, legendary, and incredibly handsome adventurer.

I would provide an image as proof, although I'm not entirely sure on how to upload it.

I think as long as a creature is a member of the civilization it can start insurrections.
A similar thing happened to me once. While I was retired my companions took over my city. I found my adventurer on the outskirts of the town.

Drinking the blood of a merchant in front of a full market probably played a role in that.   :-\

It's terrifying what our adventurers get up to when we're not watching...

You are surprised? Imagine how the dogs owner feels...
"Where's my dog Midas!!!!"
Other person: "He's at the keep"
"Why in armoks name would he be there?"
Other person: " Oh you didn't hear?"
"Hear what?"
Other person:"He lead a successful rebellion against lord Arseknuckle!"
Other person: " He is now our Lord, I don't care one way or another"
"It was inevitable"

Upload images to imgur or something btw.

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

I think something similar happened to Mojo Jojo once...

Anyway, maybe it's something like The Emperor Has No Clothes, where one kid supposedly started the Emperor's downfall?  Maybe the dogs just bit him, and revealed that he wasn't so invincible after all, and the rest of the town ganged up on him...

I've seen that in Legends mode. There were two eras in that world, the Age of the Hydra and Mountain Titan and the Age of the Mountain Titan. The Hydra was killed in Year 57 by a giant tick. Not a named giant tick, just a single, random giant tick. Plus the Hydra was rampaging at the time, so just imagine a tick sitting in an alleyway, the city in flames, watching one half of the major powers in the world eat five swordsmen at once, and thinking "yup, that looks good to eat".

Never happened to me personally, but it'll be interesting to see what'll happen to my main vampire adventurer when I retire him. I know all sorts of tricks that mean the fact that he can only use one arm doesn't matter in combat. Break arm, strangle, suck blood, stab like a maniac, rinse and repeat when necessary. But as an NPC he'll probably try to fight like a normal person; if someone hits his left arm he could be screwed. No weapons and no strangling. Doesn't help that he's seen as a potential murderer in the peninsula he 'liberated'. He is a necromancer, so I might just drag a bunch of corpses into the throne room before retiring, let him summon a zombie army when threatened. There's also a zombie elephant that may or may not be tracking him down with revenge in mind for completely unrelated reasons, so he might get squished before someone more competent comes after him.

Playing Dwarf Fortress since that version when I found it on that one day multiple years before!

Giant ticks are ruthless, though.  I had an adventurer get slaughtered in a one-hit kill to the torso through a steel breastplate.  Their stinger is basically equivalent to a steel pike.

The worst thing in legends mode is that the game won't care about materials (so things made of salt can kill entire civilization for no reason) or skills,only luck and type of creature.

I've uploaded the images to imgur, although I'm not sure on how to imbed them into my reply. Instead I'll just post the links.

Here is the image of my adventurer, I somewhat shortened it to present the main facts:

Here is the ruthless fiend of a dog:

Supposedly the animals declared a war, instead of an insurrection:

And here is the battle in which my adventurer was slain:

The attacking group only consisted of these animals.

Armok's blood! The animals are revolting! It is unclear at this time if the elves have backed the coup, but it's a reasonable assumption.

No cats were known to have participated in the attack. It is uncertain what the current threat is to dwarfkind. More coverage as the situation develops!

And yet another bit of proof that RNG is toying with us. We do 1984, it does animal farm :P

I notice that's only the first battle in the war. What else did the rebellious livestock get up to?
