Practical Vampire Use
« on: July 22, 2015, 07:46:17 pm »



"Eruth Nakuthdeler". If that is his real name. Infiltrated my fort in 251... Took two seasons and a bloody killing to catch him. He took his beating without question and we threw him in the brig for what he was assured was 120 days... But he didn't know that the chipping of stone he heard behind his cell wall was the construction of the fort's control room. The miner who dug out the entrance for the vampire scum had the door locked behind him, as a sort of 'last feast'. The vampire was mine now, and he would answer the call to pull any lever at a moments notice. Without sleep, without food, without even fresh blood, he sits in his cell. Two years as official lever puller vampire man. o7

Yes, VLAD (vampiric, lever-activated defense) systems are certainly a good way to put your local leech to work. I'm partial to having them spearhead my exploration of the caverns, personally; they're also wonderfully suited for testing out Forgotten Beast syndromes and being the first to test fiendish deathtraps for dwarves that displease you.

I prefer vampirizing my entire fort and fixing the sobriety issue, but that's just me.

What would it be like to live in a world that was copy/pasted? Would we even notice? If not, how many times have we switched celestial harddrives or whatever?
