I don't remember him confirming material definitions for natural attacks beyond material breaths.

That would certainly be interesting.

Haha, yeah, I remembered that after I posted and posted a question about it.

LOL. This game is a simulation of real life. Why do you think dragons went extinct?

He'll have some extra backbone for sure.  I'm going to experiment with all manner of spongy creatures in the next version, especially a shroom man with plump helmet flesh and tower-cap bones.

Are magma men already made out of pure magma, and ice men out of pure ice?  Of course, that means he'd start to "burn" if he leaves his glacier.

How about a creature which is made out of pigtail?  Might lose limbs quite easily.  And be highly flammable, of course.

Wait: for the most dwarven creature, we need one made of pure alcohol.  If you can make something out of magma, why not alcohol?  Equip them with fire balls and you have yourself some suicide bombers.

My first Forgotten Beast (which was made from water) killed about 16 dwarves with his deadly dust, then got snapped in two by one hit from a Macedwarf.

EDIT: Whoops, just realised this is a massive necro. I found this topic through a TV Tropes link...

Same here. Though a ratman killed it in five seconds.

A roc visited my fort once. A random hunter shot a bolt through its heart before fleeing. The end.

I find it sad, that dragons fall like wet tissue paper... while random Forgotten Beasts show up as iron humanoids that spray deadly webs, capable of massacring 5 champions, legendary in five different combat skills apiece.

I've only had Minotaurs come to my fortress. Two of them, in my entire career. I only fought one. He died, but caused a soldier to bleed to death on the field because no one would take him inside. This was before I figured out hospitals. I'm hoping to build a serious above-ground castle real soon. Maybe that'll spur some heavy combat.

When a Roc Visited my fortress, I had intended to capture it with my DEADLY HALLWAY OF CAGE TRAPS. When all my dwarves where sealed inside the fort, I assumed it would path to the hallway.
NO, it went inside my castle (because why not?) into a space that I thought was sealed, it moved down a z level DIAGONALLY into my food stockpile, spooking a cheese maker.
All in all, 12 dwarves dead, couple of animals, and 1 Roc. Only a [FLIER[ could have pulled this off.  >:(

What the fuck. Is some random undorfed recruit now our new Darkwing? Hell, even Darkwing just managed to kill two clowns before he went down. It's beyond me that a frigging recruit in the Official Voidspawn Feeding Detachment managed a triple kill on Forgotten Armokhumping Beasts.

EDIT: Just encountered my first dragon. It killed my militia quite quickly, then chased a cat for a while.
