I unretired just to get caught in another goblin attack. This time, there was just one of them, though.

--------------------------------------------------
Now I've encountered some goblins trying to invade a castle in a human town. It seems like, in this world, the goblins are not only at war with the dwarves, they're at war with the entire world.
I had a conversation with one, who was rather polite.

His friend, however, wasn't so nice.

Luckily, my companions took care of him.

The only person the goblins managed to hit was a dwarf criminal with a crossbow.

Looks like I'll have to start watching out for goblins now.

New world, starting with human civ close to some goblins. Adventurer was from hamlet near capital, so I get quest to hunt snakewomen vampire. To much suprise, I was killed quickly, so I decided to hunt down the critter. Maimed her both arms, but she just chewed my next four adventurers. Now, I made another one, and this time I started as hearthperson from said capital.
Instead of normal annoucement, with "In rush of excitment", or even "A foolhardly soul might try to rescue kidnapped childrens, I get this:

Then I asked my Lord about the vault and he knew about it. Even random people from town knew its location.

Before, if I would ask about troubles, I would get info about missing treasures and beasts, now everyone in town speak only about army marching on it.
Additionaly, there are two groups of asteriks, one west of city and one north-east of it. If I try to come even near them, I instatly crush. But there was one child far enough from them that spoke about running away from home, so I guess this are refugees.
I have to say that I admire things like those, when it turns out that there is a script acknowledging rare occasions. But at the same time shouldn't vaults be so widespread known? Moreover, if not for this "quest", I wouldn't be able to ask directly about vault.
Anyone had similiar?

I did already know adventure intros had special messages for sieges (and bandits), but not for vaults. That's interesting to know.

well after a great deal of puzzling experiments I discovered that habits do have a factor with how inhabitants are spawn in.
so the shaman group all have a habit that starts with any melee weapon(probably came from the notion that these are custom night trolls) so uhh I guess if I want to have a camp filled with folks with bows and guns I need to make a race of creatures with ranged weapons for a habit.

One of my adventurers found out the hard way that antmen prefer ranged weapons, specifically blowdarts

Every damn night I get to a tavern, the only tavern-keep is asleep.

When will they hire someone for a night shift?

Somewhat amusingly I'm pretty sure the tavern keepers currently live in their places of business, seeing as AFAIK they only ever leave to get a drink from the well (or to visit the local temple if they're religious).

They also live by "never consume your own supply" it seems.

Well of course, they know perfectly well that that's for the customers. :P

My game has this bug where thawing ice at campfires doesn't work, which was a real problem for a while... until I went to a tavern and found out alcohol doesn't freeze...

Speaking of bugs: is it normal to find tree pollen catkins growing in farm fields in adventure mode? Lately I've seen them popping up even when there's no trees in the immediate vicinity.

used dfhack’s bodyswap for the first time, to get my companion some better eq. way less hassle than doing it through the exchange goods screen! in the process i got to discover that, despite being a hammerdwarf, he has below average strength  ::)

anyway, now that we’re equipped, probably gonna die of something dumb

I finished an adventure play, testing my modded frog men. I thought it would be good to make some nice art novel for Community and Games, 'cause it was epic story of frienship, treason, vengeance, wrath... At first. Then it was just... Wrath. Burning a tower, raiding a dark fortress (Legends Viewer told me 400 goblins + lots of trolls 'n' beak dogs died that day), but couldn't defeat a master, so I escaped and settled.

Then I built a camp and became lord, retired, reclaimed every free fort for our great civilizations, then opened Legends Viewer, and looked what my adventurer did in the meantime. RAGE!!!
You know what the super powerful frog wizard warrior did? He left his beautiful house he had built with his own hands, and moved to the dark fortress he raided, and became member of their civilization, that even raided his house he had built with his own hands, killed all his friends... Like... What? But it was fun. Lots of fun.

didn't die, but near enough to. accidentally fast-travelled while my companions were still "wait here"ing in the wilderness and lost them forever, then wandered into a lair hoping it was indoors enough to sleep safe from boogeymen, but "you cannot rest until you leave this site". there was a starved horror in the lair, who i took down in two hits but he got in a grab and a shake, and tore my lower spine's nervous tissue in the process. crawled for three nights (sleeping by day) back to where i started, and retired

Now that he manage to rid himself of his possessor, his first act was to go against everything he's done while he was being controlled. Makes you think just how much we now about them, the beings we control.
