After 38 in game years, I finally learned that it's not enough to just assign citizens to a burrow, but you also have to go into the military menus and activate a civilian alert using that burrow.  Soo many legendary stonecrafters, doctors, and metalcrafters lost to the surface...

anything that webs is extremely dangerous. Could be a sack of jelly with no limbs, if it webs, and can do damage at all to a dwarf, it can kill with ease. Dwarf gets webbed, head is nice, juicy target, dwarf gets brained.

Now imagine that same scenario with a giant T-Rex bearing down on the helpless dwarves.

......But before they get there the ocean waves wash over them, they drop their wheelbarrows and return home. Someone brings the wheelbarrow back and it all repeats ad-infinitum.

Confirmed: Urist does not like surfing.

Sometimes the caravan guards give up when the fight is really one-sided:

a little more than a page of smackdown
The swordsdwarf slashes the giant cardinal in the head with her ({bismuth bronze short sword}) and the severed part sails off in an arc!

Why would one yield after cutting off a head?

If you cut off someone's head and there's still a fight maybe you get a case of the quivers.

Ah yes, arrow holders coming to life might be a problem depending on if there are arrows inside

(I know you mean like shaking in fear but this interpretation was fun too)

Animating biomes are so inconvenient....
