Is this where the "Execution Tower of Gibbing" comes in? IIRC if drop the "tame" beastie far enough it explodes on impact you can butcher the pieces? (Note, it's been a while since I actually played, so I may be misremembering).
I tried a tower of gibbing, but it didn't work for me, they just dragged the dismembered corpse bits back to the corpse stockpile to rot

My fisherdwarf just drowned himself. There weren't any carp or anything around, he just straight up died.

Goblin: General? We were told by the Dark lord to kill the dwarves, so why are we throwing socks in the pond instead of attacking them?
Goblin General: HehehehehehehehehahahHAHAHAHAHA

I just realized you could use Carve Track (d-T) to make Impulse Ramps. Previously I had always Built them, which took a lot more keypresses and stone blocks.

Yup, the various weapon lords are very very hard to hit. You ought to see what the combat log looks like when one of 'em gets into the goblin grinder. They pretty much never get hit. In fact, they are the reason that my goblin grinders are now   hatch cover, pressure plate, weapon trap, weapon trap, ..., weapon trap, cage trap, pressure plate, hatch cover. The normal troops get diced and sliced fairly rapidly among the first few weapon traps and the weapon master dances and avoids all the weapon traps before being grabbed by the cage trap at the end of the line.

Upon closer inspection, the typical angry honey badgers caused him to jump into the pond.

That idiot.

Also, the game gives you a notification when someone is stung by a bee.

This calls for a comic.



EDIT: Oh, lol. My dorfs kept engraving windows on the wall of the dining room.

Embarked on a volcano with a tiny bit of forest in the corner, set my dwarfs to build a bridge over the crater, carve a massive awesome entrance, only to realize the only soil is aaaaall the way over in that tiny corner. Had to dig all the way to the caverns, and thankfully got a large chunk that was easy to wall off, but now I'll have to build most of the fort far away from the awesome entrance hall, waaaaaaaay deep down.

Would certainly be an order of magnitude worse than having ol' uncle Urist get up on a table and give a sober toast to the couple.

Spending about 30 minutes carefully planning my embark, and then realizing I forgot to give any of my dwarves the "Miner" skill.
I didn't even make it to the first migrant wave, all seven dwarves were slaughtered in an alligator attack.  :-[

Cage traps.  So awesome.  A line of them by the river and a pastured animal.  Worth it if you have wood.

As an aside, am I the only one who notices that there is an awesome animal for taming/capture on the map (or one that shortly migrates onto the map) when the game starts and once it leaves it never shows up again?
