One: NEW RELEASE??!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D WHERE??!! (FP 1)

Two: Playing with Genesis mod, get sieged by Beastmen when I had 38 dorfs. Win, but go down to 23. After five minutes, I yell "STUFF THIS! TO THE ADAMANTINE VEIN!" But I had forgotten where it was, and it didn't appear on [a] because of the job cancellations (see above: Siege) (FP 2). I find about three others, NONE WERE HOLLOW! (FP 3) SO i dug down to hell, and let all hell break loose.

I did NOT intend that pun. (FP 4)  ::)

Edit:Demons decimating fort, half of living dwarves severly injured...
A dorf caravan is here! Meh, where be the Brine Devils? Oh, there's one--
The Forgotten Beast Ath Sosmzuzar has come! UGH TOADY YOU MASOCHIST

When I ordered my Urist McHunterMilitiaCommander to kill the berserk cook who didn't get his shells, I wondered why was he just punching him. Then I realized that if there is no squad uniform set for the dorf, he will not wear any.
I do not remember if he went and stashed his hunter crossbow or simply decided not to use it. Punched to his death. Good thing I had another ranger.

There is a finely-engraved image of Ascimator on the wall. Ascimator is slapping himself in the face. The artwork relates to the loss of the only anvil in Perplextombs in the late winter of 6.

My ... dwarves just elected a vampire into the mayor's office. Several weeks after she was found out and convicted for two murders.

I don't know anymore.  :-[
wow, it's almost as if Dwarfs are little psychopaths. :o

Lost limb will fighting a necromancer, picked it up and beat necromancer to death with it (dual wielded with limb and axe  :D)
But I should have thrown it out the window, because I dropped it, it reanimated, and then killed me

Would that count as suicide or murder since it was.... y'know, your own arm...

I had a nice operation set up with magma smelters and forges. Occasionally magma crabs appeared. This one had been shooting at a fisherdwarf really often but now it took a different target. Nish Morulamost, Metalsmith and avid dodger. Yeeeep. He's going into the velcaner. So I tombed him while he's still falling. Blaggard.  ::)


Edit; he left a wife and two passing acquaintances. May he toil in peace in Armok's forge. And may he study in Mishtem's library.


Also, magma-death seems changed. He didn't drown nor did he get combat reports about how the magma is sizzling him. He left a plume of smoke at -156

Magmacrab is named Istamlimul. I wish it meant 'little bitch' rather than 'lightgold.'

New player here, so there's going to be a lot of these.  :P

Started a new fortress because I had exciting new design ideas. Digging... Digging... Digging... Noticed there were spots with really nice things like high value gems, gold and.. some type of rare rock that I forget what it was called. Noticed that walls look exactly like smooth stone, so I dig out the parts of my almost uniformed living area and put in walls that match so I have a color coordinated fortress. How clever is that!

I get to the dining area and find it's nothing but clay. Pretty red clay, but you can't smooth clay so I do my clever little trick and put in pretty walls.

Then I go to engrave them to find.... this is not a feature of this game and I have ruined the entire layout of my fortress. :/

I can just imagine the necromancer going "Stop hitting yourself! Why are you hitting yourself? Stop hitting yourself!"

The guy who dodged magma crab shooting and fell into lava has returned as a ghost (in the lava sea) and I can't slab him. I can slab three others, though, but I never lost those others. ::?

Edit; Nish the dead is now haunting my food stockpile. Hm. What to do?

Edit2; his ghost appearing meant he was no longer thought to be missing at least. And he's disappeared again, too.

Yea, you can't engrave constructed walls, only smoothed rock walls.

Lurker emerging, alert alert beep boop lets go.

Face palm moment involved a horse, and my sub-equpied, ill-trained military. The combat reports all show the same thing, page after page of poor dwarves being kicked in the head, until one of the few equipped dwarves got a lucky strike on it's neck until it bled out. The face palm, I had a legendary hunter that could of done it easily without any casualties involved. Keep on forgetting about hunters...

I just facepalmed after a comical situation involving a horse, a goat and a goblin lasher.
