236 - 202 = 34 years
Actually, that was when he got his first legendary.

Anyway, now Morul has legendary shield user he should be a nightmare to even hit.  How's his armour user coming along?

Ironblood vs Morul
Natural badassery vs intense lifetime training
Nothing will survive.

The fortress was founded in 201, so about 35 years now.

Morul is professional armor user, a bit behind shield, but shield is more important IMO, so all is good. I might have him drop shield after a while to speed up armor while sparring, but I really want shield +5.

His social is now Adept/Expert and moving along much more steadily. I've got 4 of each type of silver weapon - no modifier. So far no major injuries while sparring. I've not seen any on Morul and the others usually just get grey wounds. We'll see how things go when they pick up the pointy ones.

I'd like to see a Morul vs. Ironblood battle.

Don't make Morul angry; you wouldn't like him when he's angry.

Really though, talk about your fortress destroying tantrums; I'm betting Morul would take out the entire military without breaking a sweat before he calms down.

Morul has stopped work: Throwing Tantrum.
Morul has broken the fortress.

Urist Austin, Axedwarf.  A dwarf barely alive.  Gentledwarves, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic dwarf. Urist Austin will be that dwarf. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.

Sheerly from a mathematical standpoint, Morul would wipe the floor with Ironblood. Ironblood would be a comparative pansy. Ironblood is legendary in about 8 skills. Morul still wouldn't look as cool doing it though.

That isn't necessarily true.  Dwarves can continue to get stat increases from raising the same skills more.  Even past Legendary + 5 they will get stat increases if they work on that particular skill enough.  It's hard to measure just how dangerous Ironblood really is.

With [SLOW_LEARNER], dwarves probably don't sit around and talk anymore. They just stand in the same corner altogether, staring at each other, sticking their bearded lips out trying to make sounds. And giggling when someone actually says a whole word.

Yeah, Morul would technically be tougher if instead of training every skill to legendary he had just spent 30 years doing record keeping.  He wouldn't be as awesome though.

...
A morul - Ironblood showdown could end in 3 ways:
1: Ironblood is instantly struck down, and explodes, some parts fly all the way around the world of Nist Akath and land on it's north pole, some other will go into orbit, past the speed of light, and destroy life as they know it the next world over.
2: Morul is batted of the map with a gabbro cabinet, then crumepts.
3: Both are simply immortal, playing tennis with each other as the balls for the rest of eternity. All copies of dwarf fortress, EVERYWHERE, would be shocked so badly that whatever they are installed on would explode violently*


*This means I should get rid of the DF instal on the USB key I always have in my pocket, please warn me in time.
