Bats?!
« on: November 03, 2007, 11:41:00 pm »

The area around the entrance to my new fort just started swarming with bats for no apparent reason. Just ordinary little bats going nuts all over my entrance stairs. Is this some sort of portent of doom I should be worried about? I can honestly say I've never had any computer game make me as worried as I am about flickering storm of gray dots has me right now.

Maybe you scared them out of wherever they live? Or maybe something dark and ancient buried deep beneath something-or-other spooked them? You didn't, er.. dig deep, did you?

the spinning bb round hits jack johnson, scumbag in the lower body!
it is pierced through entirely!
his right kidney has been poked out!
his liver has been mangled!

jack johnson, raider has been shot and killed.

The above (including bbcode) neatly weighs in at 255 characters. Fallout meets DF

I had the same thing happen on a hot desert map - bats would swarm around my entrance every now and then.

Nothing bad ever happened... till the dwarf liaison bugged and got stuck inside my cave and went berzerk killing my first dwarf of this version.

So yeah. I doubt bats can predict game bugs... but all the same I'd be careful!

I had bats once. I'm still digging. And I've yet to find anything interesting under the sands, save a lot of iron ore, and a shitton of pale, almost-worthless stones. Ah well. They pay well back home for instruments, even if it's made of rock. Now if only I could get some mail-order trees...

I found a large cluster of roaches in adventure mode. I just walked around and it said: "Many large roaches have been disturbed." Perhaps this also can happen in dwarf mode with bats.
