I started a new game today and as I was preparing for my journey (not at all carefully), I meant to get rid of the more expensive training axes to allow for more points to be put into things like food. However, after about 10 minutes of trying to figure out why my miners weren't doing anything when I obviously designated places to be mined out, I realized that neither of my miners had picks on them...and that I hadn't gotten rid of the training axes, but rather the PICK axes...I will no longer assume that MinerMcStoopidDwarf isn't doing his job as he was programed to...

Hmmm, it's been a while since my last siege, let's check who is outside my fort... Ahhh, not much, my legendary miner is a fair bit away but I HIGHLY doubt anything is going to happen... how funny would it be if I got a sie-OH FOR FUCKS SAFE DWARF FORTRESS

He's dead, not surprising with that many lashers and pikemen stabbing you, I have four more.

Speaking of my other miners, one of them is arranging a party now that the seige is broken. Charming.

I just had this Doh! moment.

I setup legendary McSmithy to gold stud all my masterworked adamantine armour, with all doors to other items he might grab locked - double and triple checked all access. He starts working and grabs from the armour pile I wanted, so I leave him to it.
Unfortunately, McWeapons at the forge beside him was making copper bolts, but must have been getting a drink at the time.

I didn't become aware of any of this until, I got curious about what my archers were shooting at the target range.

Apparently, while channeling the water out of a 1-z-level deep pool produces a decently fast stream, tunneling into the bottom of a 2 z-level deep pool creates a water cannon.

Luckily, my miner managed to get a hold of something apparently, and somehow is now inside the pool. Otherwise he'd have been blown out with all the water and over the edge of an underground deep pit. That'd have been messy.

i was removing ramps. with four or five miners in a 2*3 moat.
it spanned several z level.
the ones at the end decided it would be a lot of !!fun!! to dig out from beneath the feets of my legendary miners.
porridge of dwarf ensued.
because i still hadn't filled the moat with water. or magma. and those down decided to finish the job of the legendary, digging away the ramps by standing on top of them. hell yeah. lost 6 miners in one shot!

I was trying to figure out why all my dwarves on the surface were idle and the medical dwarves weren't using murky pools for water, when I realized that after a not so deadly clown made of steam broke down the door to the caverns (It came out of nowhere), I had panicked and sealed off the surface from the rest of my fort.

I tried to tame enemy mounts from a siege. Game gave them the 'stray' prefix so I thought all was well. Went to butcher them, they escape and kill my mayor. Major tantrum spiral begins and leaves me with 3 dwarfs.

One of the dwarfs is killed by a ghost.

Damnit.

While I was trying to get all the valuable metal out of the moat I was digging, I accidentally breached the brook I was planning on filling said moat with. Luckily there weren't any dwarfs in the moat at that moment so I only lost one room before I could get a wall up to save my fort.

In a metaphorical sense. The tantrum spiral has begun and the seige isn't even over yet.

I'm jealous. Haven't been sieged in ages... (It would probably help if I played more, though. :P)
