Author Topic: Dwarves shouldn't panic from seeing a dangerous creature that can't reach them  (Read 653 times)

When you have a monster stuck in a room with fortifications, dwarves freak out when they see the monster. They should be able to detect that there is no pathing possible for the monster to reach them.
Any monster with a ranged attack should be an exception, of course.

'WHY DO YOU MANIACS HAVE A DRAGON IN YOUR FORT?!!?!?!' Sounds like a reasonable reaction from the unsuspecting dwarf. ;)

I like the idea, but I think you should instead be able to tag monsters as safe in the military menu (obviously overridden by any actual attacks), this would require a bit of micromanaging, but would honestly be more realistic than all the dwarves just chilling because the colossus can't reach them but, still, good idea.

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.

This does sound a lot better, to be honest.

Or even better, make cowardly dwarves always scared of monsters, even if tagged as safe, and courageous ones never fear them.

Has possibility for a new social behavior, "Dare", wherein dwarven youths (and/or drunken adults) challenge each other to get close(r) to the angry beastie.

Dwarf Fortress -- kind of like Minecraft, but for people who hate themselves.

The dwarven equivalent would be to dare someone to get sober and, for once in their life, do something not completely stupid.
