I'm now thinking of a turtle-shaped tavern where the koopas and trolls would be playing cards.

Maybe once the fort itself gets enough migrants that could be some kind of project? A large turtle-shaped tavern, so we can see what kinds of freaks from all around the world come to visit.
Speaking of which, in light of the latest version's breakout bug, 'twould be best to stick to 44.03. We neither want nor need 200 semi-citizens within the first year.

Huh, thats annoying - thought this was a one-off weirdness in my own fortress.

It seems to be a misbegotten fix to the bug where mercenaries returning from raids would apply for sanctuary. First it was the dogs doing it, then the rooms weren't being reassigned, then the mercenaries broke, and now this. And there are almost certainly others I've forgotten about. Suffice it so say that the raiding system is proving an abundant source of borkery.

Turtle shaped tavern would be great, I'll make sure to try to do that instead of my usual square tavern. And thank you for alerting me to the problems of the new version, I hadn't made any progress in moving the raws to it so I guess I'll just leave them in 44.03. Is 44.03 stable enough to run a long fort? Either way, I'm going to make a copy of the save just in case something goes wrong and we have to emergency switch versions or something.

Yeah, thats the main dilemma.

Do we want megabeasts/forgotten beasts to path properly, or do we risk having migrants that dont work?
Admittedly, for the latter case we could always write it off as "unruly koopas that were forcibly sent to Modded Hell and refuse to work for one reason or another". Not sure how the former would make sense story-wisethough.

I set up a poll for it, personally I'd rather have mega beasts. There's also the possibility that by the time we're ready to start there will be a new update that fixes everything, but until then we should probably decide which version we want. And for clarification, is it just a small percentage of migrants that won't work, or a large percentage?

Overpopulation issues have a pretty easy fix, you know...  :P

Any screencaps of this wonderful budding mess as updates start to chug?

I'll definitely be taking screen shots while I'm playing, both to help show the events and to help people weed out what I'm making up for the story and what's actually happening.

Ach! I'd forgotten about the pathing bug. We're caught between Scylla and Charybdis, it would seem.

EDIT: I suppose the obvious solution is to make a drowning room or an atom-smasher and designate it as a tavern.

Ha, the Shell Catina, I like it. I'll add it to the art section, as well as the quote. Even though the poll has only been up for less than a day it seems that the people want the game to be updated, so I need you all to start planning visitor death traps.
