Is revenge for your civs failed raids/sieges or against groups who've raided them going to be an option during this release? Say, outpost liaison tells you how one of the greatest generals of the civ was captured during a siege, and they'll give you so many urists worth of stuff for free in the next caravan or they'll promise a large steel shipment or something similar in return for his return?

Most likely in economy update, which is due in about 20 years.

Damnit people, this is why I said to keep the truce. Because now everyone's ganging up on the cats.
Also, don't forget to contact your local Eldritch Being(s), so that they can help with our mission to destroy the universe.

Yes to both. In some worlds. Why do people assume there will be a single magic system?

Just for clarity, and because I've seen people worried about it:

The "claims" made on Fortress Mode made artifacts are just "flavor text" for the purposes of the creating fortress, correct? There's no current or near-future fortress impact based on claims like: "He/She offers it to <entity>", "He/she claims it as a family heirloom", "He/she claims it as a family heirloom in the name of the family ancestor <figure>", "He/she claims it as a personal treasure", etc., even if lost and recovered within that same Fortress Mode play-through?

I've seen Twitch streamers begin to plot the unexpected deaths of valued weaponsmiths they thought were going to hide an artifact steel battle axe in their bedroom, so many dwarven lives could be saved depending on a clear answer here!  ;)

When has saving dwarven lives ever been a priority for this community? :P

Well obviously in that case you wouldn't want them to die. It was just a questionable attempt at humour.

I hesitate to ask, because if this is just a bug I should have spent my time writing a bug report. I'm just not positive it's an actual issue, so . . .

. . . is it intentional that criminals and mercenaries cannot have creature tiles specified for them?

As mentioned in another thread, I can imagine that you would make the point that criminals and mercenaries don't have "a dress code", so how could you tell what they are? In other words, you intentionally didn't allow a tile to be specified for those two professions and that's why they fall back to the civ default tile. Working as intended, so to speak.

At the same time, if you [l]ook at the person in question you'll see "criminal"; so the information is provided. But maybe that's a bug: that the game currently tells you via [l]ook that the person is a criminal and not that you can't specify a tile for that profession.

Mercenaries just seem to list the weapon type (e.g. "maceman," etc) which follows the same logic as mentioned above in regards to no dress code/no tile.

Again, I'm just not sure. But, based on your answer, I may or may not submit a bug report. Heh.

Thanks for your time.

Actually, if you killed off the hoarder and then gave the artifact axe to your military, you would be saving lives in the long run.

How did you come up with the name Bay12?

A few questions about dummied-out features:
1) How did the game classify demonic fortresses? Were they landscape features (like volcanoes and streams,) a property of map-tiles (like savagery or elevation,) or something else entirely?

2) What purpose did Important Locations serve?

3) Why were human forts removed?
