Dwarves experience hangovers.

That's unpossible. They'd have to sober up first.

Trampling. If an upright creature moves over a prone creature(or creatures), it does blunt damage dependent on the size difference between the trampler and tramplee.

Is it bad that I actually like this idea?
That depends. Have you ever looked at a high-traffic, 1-tile wide corridor inside a generated dwarf fortress and thought to yourself, "these walls aren't red enough"?
Only every day of my life.  The effect should be multiplied if the trampler is wearing armored boots.

Given their relative lifespans, if humans become adults at age 12, dwarves should become adults at roughly age 21.
Implement this.

This actually makes sense to me TBH. :P

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

Giant wolf sponges: all the fun of pack-hunting predators with none of those pesky, vulnerable organs!

Sponge Giants -

They're so absorbent, that if they touch your stockpiles, all liquids are absorbed by them instantly.

Question, do they grow or heal upon absorbing liquids? Cuz that sounds cool, do they take up multiple squares? Is it even possible to code a creature that takes up multiple squares?

I mean, wagons do and they're coded as creatures currently, so I assume it's at least possible.

The same goes for bodily fluids and the magma sea.

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

Yeah, but it would get frustrating pretty quickly, especially for folks playing for the first time.

I'm imagining this as a possible symptom of a forgotten beast attack, maybe combined with the effect of duplicating raws. "The forgotten beast Ixilub the Wet Horror of Boredom has come!...Beware his reality-warping spittle!"
