I embarked on a dark fortress. It only took 60 embarks but I got a sweet tower out of it and found out what hell was.

spoilers dude

But that sounds like an awesome first encounter.

How?  I could swear that post 40d dwarf fortress didn't allow embarking on other people's sites.

Only vaguely. Made of the same substance and put to the same use, but a bit like comparing a castle and a doublewide trailer.

Embark-anywhere. I've seen them myself and they're pretty imposing. Took bit of inspiration from one for Moonhome.

Not sure why it took thoa 60 embarks though.

I've talked about it before, but I've used embark anywhere to embark on vaults and tombs before as well. Tombs are admittedly rather uninteresting because the mummies don't seem to spawn, and vaults are FPS hogs, plus most of the residents are labeled as pets for some weird reason.

Old masterwork, semi-evil biome(no evil weather or revival). After attack of garpies only two dwarfs left, on healthy and inside, and horribly wounded blacksmith, Thekkud God-forsaken camps. After the fight, he started to veeeeryyy slowly  crawl  to the fort cave in a hill. He was starving and dehydrated, but since he was able to move(?) second dwarf won't pick up him. When he was about 20 tiles from entrance, he gone crazy, then walked to the food stockpile at normal speed immediately.
Why you... cuckoo, need to go insane to get to food to save your damn life?

My dwarf went to "attend a meeting" with expedition leader TAD. In Horrofailed, meeting the expedition leader means hitting them. Multiple times.
Again, we were meant to scout out the place, bribe the right people, get intel, sneak in, sneak out. We are currently somewhere beneath the crater, fumbling for gasmasks

Making a huge above-ground-Fort with a big moat. Then a siege came and I totally forgot to build the last wall. The attackers just swam through my moat and slaughtered my dwarves.

totally closed underground fort - goblins show up and everyone runs in and we close the front bridgegate.
still some dorf are fighting from time to time with beakdogs, trolls and goblins...
it took me a week to realise the roof of my farm had a hole from the last treecutting.
we still fought them off there, closed the roof and then a coppertitan showed up killing half of the remaining gobbos, who then fled after they killed him.

Accidentally made my stockpile for trash compacting under a bridge be the stockpile for masterworks. Oops.

The dwarves fell to their knees as the sky cracked open, and the Art God came forth from the shattered heavens and declared, "What the actual hell dude?"

First look at the image please. (In spoiler)

Explanation:

When I wanted everyone to haul stone, I made a profession stonehauler, which was only haul stone.
While stonehauling appears to be broken, because they did not haul the stone even though there was no reason for them not to,
when I turned autolabor back on, most of them kept the profession name.

To be fair, I sometimes do gen highly customized worlds just to see how they turn out, without any intention to play them beyond at most Legends Mode.

I was wondering why my FPS took a nose dive...

My dwarf in the middle of the swamp was on his way to pull the level one z-level up that turns off the pump. He very nearly drowned.
