You do the physics in your head and start to form a plan. Waiting for the dog to fall asleep was crossed off the list early on because this dog looks like they have a lot of energy and who knows how long before a dwarf comes wandering by.

If you don't throw the mantis meat far enough the dog will be alerted to your presence AND you won't be able to get past it.

If you throw the mantis meat in the corner of the tunnel you should have just enough time to slip past but there is the chance the dog will alert the fortress to your presence.

If you throw the meat to far, however, the dog will not be able to reach it and will turn it's attention back to you. If the chain is long enough, you may be able to trick the dog into hanging itself...

Last but certainly not least, you could throw the meat through the dogs skull. This has been known to work in the past and it is the most FUN option.



After dealing with the pupper you still have to choose your next hidding spot. You could start your way down the massive ramp, the tunnel to the left, or the tunnel straight ahead.





The tunnel on the right wall is sealed off.

Set up a poll for which door, please.

Anyway... screw it, lob the meat at the dog's head and make a mad dash.

I will start with a quick poll to decide how to deal with the dog. Then another quick poll to decide the doorway. It's too bad I can't poll both of those questions at the same time.

I would kind of like to watch the place a bit. See where the major thoroughfares are, look out for where the people with all the shinies hang out, see if we can cantch a whiff of a certain recursive curved knife...

Throw one of those at the doggo, then dodgeroll past him!
+1, everyone knows that throwing in DF is unbalanced and much too powerful



The spinning +Prepared Giant Mantis Jerky+ strikes the doggo in the head bruising the skull.
The doggo's lower body slides along the ground bruising the muscle!

Doggo is now taking a nap. Where to next?

I vote for the tunnel ahead; it has the most writing above the arch, therefore there must be more stuff that way.

Just take a moment to be proud of yourself. You've successfully put every enemy you've encountered to sleep. Kea may not be as big as, say, wolves, but they are still a large predator.

Like I said I won't be able to update until Monday so I will leave the polls up until then.

That actually does sound reasonable to me but it is up to yall to decide!

This has been really fun so far! You guys actually did really well  as a community and Grawr only got a few scratches. Don't get to cocky though because there is a lot of FUN in store.

Go straight forwards.
Also, retrieve the mantis jerky. It now has dog juice in it for extra flavor.

My second turn's unnoficial goal was to turn everyone into vampires, and it backfired so bad, I ended up making the fort a more efficient, safer and friendlier place.
Apparently they evolved a taste for everything I love and care about
