Yet another in the long list of artifact 'WTF?'s
« on: July 23, 2008, 11:55:05 pm »

Artifact 1: *Some obscure name*, a cedar statue
Artifact 2: Cedar Statue, Cedar Statue, a pine ring.
Really? Really?

Not as bad as the artifact thong that menaced with spikes of stuff though...

My first artifact on this Fortress was:

Tabarvucaredir, The Faithful Dungeon-Urn, a large roach chitin earring

Most of the others are wooden bracelets, with the exception of a neat brass statue and a goblin bone chain (which is currently restraining, ironically, the dwarf who made it in my Fortress jail.)

Lets see so far on this fort I've got a bracelet out of three woods (with images) $4800, a bag (do bags get destroyed when you make glass? I'm not sure where it is), and just now a mug made of native silver, picture jasper, dolomite, and leather worth $43200 named Odgubsarek (I think, hard to tell with accents).

I think the thing where artifacts get a name that isn't in dwarvish (like named after a dwarf or something) is a bug. I've had it happen a few times but couldn't get it to reproduce even with a save before the artifact was made.

I once had a dwarf make a barrel with his name listed, then his name again as if it was a translation. But the whole name was in english since I had a nickname replacing his last name.

You guys are lucky. In my current fortress, I have about 4 one-piece artitfacts, and three of them were made of normal wood. The fourth is a golden shoe. I've heard of bronzing baby shoes, but this is absurd. At least it's worth a huge amount.

In my last fort I had a turtle-shell crown, a morganite weapon rack, a cage made out of some kind of gemstone I forget, and a door, also out of a gemstone I forget.

I'd never had an artifact door before, it looked like a wall with a gemstone in it. XD

My first artifact was an Iron Anvil, menacing with spikes of Iron. Then, my weapon crafter knocked out an artifact hammer, thus proving that the sight was thoroughly blessed by the dwarfish gods and destined to be a mighty fortress of dwarfkind.

I have no idea, but then, why else would it be an artifact?  :P

Last night, a child made an artifact Cat Bone Door.

An entire door.  Made out of Cat Bone.  And menacing with spikes of Horse Bone.

...that's one messed-up kid.
