Damn, this really sucks.

Looks like the game couldn't take us down with a bronze dragon so it resorted to crashes instead.

Seems to be the case. The crashing persists regardless of whether its in the modded install folder or the vanilla game or my personal game, so I dont think that's the problem.

I downloaded the save, and I noticed the crash seemed to hit right after the kaminoan's clone tanks outside finished working. I wonder if that's the problem.

I made it to Sandstone. I think the problem was the clone tanks outside. I was able to get past it by giving the cloning interaction an immensely long countdown so they'll never activate. If we need to, maybe we could just take off the syndrome's endpoint entirely.

Here's the current save, there's a new forgotten beast swimming around in the caverns.

*I've also noticed that we're down 15 citizens and 8 pets, but I'm still fine so that's no problem. I think I found the hole the glass forgotten beast climbed through. Here's a picture, it's on the left side of the mines.

Yeah, I've found four or five holes beasts could get through and have been plugging them as i go.

Also, I'll just copy over your raw changes for that and continue where I left off.
I'm thinking of letting the droidekas use their blasters as hands, just so we dont have to listen to them bitch about how they cant stockpile items or clean because they have no hands.


Sandstone 2, 108

Limestone has come and gone, and besides the edenian mages killing other visitors and the rest of us spending a lot of time working, not much of interest happened. However, come this month we're seeing some interesting times.

Firstly, our last suspected vampire, Innu, somehow got into a fight with a pignite, who won.

We've begun furnishing our library;

and two more forgotten beasts are roaming around the caverns.

They're horrifying honestly.

23rd Limestone, 108

A wizard arrived today. Perhaps he can show us something of magic.

(I am super excited because I was worried spellcrafts would be utterly irrelevant on this game because monsters cant do the magic things.)

Hopefully we will live long enough for a siege to happen.

I like how the sauropod forgotten beast has spatula feathers.

Hello. I've just finished reading up on this today. So I thought I would leave this as a PTW and a request to be 'Monstered' I guess? Anyway I've never really posted in the upper boards before. So it is nice to meet you if we have never met in the lower boards.

I haven't died yet, I've just been kinda busy. Anyway, a quick update on what happened the last two days before I go to bed


Winter came, but you can barely tell. The edenian mages seem to have gotten over their urge to slaughter random tavern goers, and that wizard has occasionally enlightened someone in the inner workings of the world.

We haven't really been lucky, regardless, and a couple animals are suspected of being possessed by pretas, and I've had them holed up in an unused room. Hopefully of they get the urge to kill something again, it will be each other.

Work on the mug ended up stalling just because I haven't told anyone what to do with it, I've been focusing more inwards, setting up a library where hopefully we collect some enlightening tomes, and more stockpiles. Dug a tunnel to the magma sea, and proved the rumors dwarves spread of adamantine to be true; we haven't touched the metal yet, I was hoping to learn more specifics about the dangers that are rumored to follow.

Oh, and a caravan from the homeland arrived. They made it all the way to the depot, before something went wrong. The underbrush of the taiga is on fire again, the merchants are leaving and their wagons were destroyed somehow. But nobody can tell me what actually happened.

Anyway, we got some of the at-rt's we ordered, for free no less, because the merchants just dropped everything and turned around.

This seems to be a recurring theme around here.


After speaking to the liaison, Mayor Whim was informed we could become a barony. I managed to argue him out of nominating himself, and instead nominating Temi the miner, one of the crew that followed me here to found this place.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Oh, and the fire in the trade depot lot hasnt gone out. There is apparently a piece of lignite burning indefinitely there. Probably one of the fire monsters set it off. I'm about ready to lock them all in a room with a bridge and test what the dwarves call an "atom smasher." Just burn everything. None of it matters. Burn it all.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I'll have to just find another place to build the depot until that lignite burns away, because I cant get even the fire monsters to touch it.
A sith caravan also arrived but we dont have a depot at the moment.

We've had more vampire related deaths, and nobody's come forward with suspects.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
It's frustrating, truly. Especially since the tavern is packed at all hours.

Wait, make that three
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Crofica was on our guard squad, she was a valuable trainer in martial arts for our monsters. We need to find whomever is responsible for this and deal with them.


The liaison mentioned they're willing to buy scepters and amulets at higher than average rates next year, so I've asked our craftsmen to make some. If the caravan doesnt spontaneously cumbust again, we should be able to make a reasonable trade. I ordered some galvantulas, leather of various species, alcohol and raw plants, and steel and iron bars, among other things.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
A fight broke out between a charmander and some other pokemon when I pastured all the fire types I was aware of in one of the nesting rooms. Three of the pokemon ended up dead.

There's been fighting going on in the tavern again too. A couple mercenaries we hired into the guard went after a couple visitors. No idea what the fighting was about, but two visitors were killed.

Oh, and grillby got tired of running around naked and tried to put some pants on. The pants were made of pig tail cloth, and now he's complaining about choking on the smoke of his own burning pants.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

And finally, Temi is officially recognized as baron. It's all his problem now.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)


My time's up, its someone elses' problem now.

I gotta say, I've very rarely had a fort where this many fights break out in a single year. Especially since I cant see any reason for the animosity between them.

The thought that Borechanced has survived another year...

It fills me with Determination.

Who wants to go next?

Good to see that Borechanced didn't burn down this year.  :P

Technically, it did. Several times. I've built fire breaks across the halls through the soil section but occasionally something on fire walks across them anyway.

Pretas are the reason for the regular fighting and vampire-related deaths.

They were originally conceived as a single element that makes this relatively easy game harder, and in particular to punish players who turtle in their fort too much.

Upon possession, a preta enters the "shuffling" phase where it will turn its host berserk for a tick and jump to any available host who has not been possessed recently.  After settling down, they will turn their hosts into vampires for a few months (typically enough time for one feeding), then they enter the "mature" phase of their cycle where they will jump to any creature their host is in lethal combat with, provided that creature has not been possessed recently.  If a month passes and they do not get into lethal combat, they will turn their host berserk in order to force them into lethal combat.  After jumping to a new host, they enter the shuffling phase and the cycle repeats.

The idea was to have a single preta jumping among your population, causing occasional chaos every few months until you managed to either trap and kill the current host or coaxed it into jumping into a wild animal.  Unfortunately they seem to appear more frequently than they should and now are known as fortress destroyers.

The main preventative measure should still work; send suspects to fight wild animals regularly.

Maybe remove the vermin_eater tag from their raws, which will stop them from clustering around the food piles.  Or lower their bite frequency.
