spent some time dabbling into army finding and found a good middleground on a script that shows the adventure's and another army that is on top of the adventurer's for poking around how * tick.

ended up crashing the game twice digging around this code, and ended up realizing army commander type for companions waiting is 10 while army commander type for waiting to invade a place is 7 or 5?
slowly working on sending folks out to attack towns, to later swoop in and recruit everyone then send those folks out to raid others.
the issue is figuring out how to create the rumor of an attack happening in town that needs to send folks for rescue.

...You are making sending squads off the map in 43.05?(Or separate squads as adventurer? Didn't get)

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

telling companions to wait, then using dfhack to order them to do stuff in the travel screen.
so far it more discovering what does the army controller stuff do, than any concrete setup.
also heavily crash prone stuff so causally poking into this is a tad hard to do.

edit: so poking around adventurer camp sites I discovered one of my old scripts that adds all historical entities work well on newly form civs from camps
thus the game could allow the player to start a fort from the camp civ they made.

the only downside is the civ the adventurer makes is extremely barebones and the folks that embark from there start with only 3 wood from the wagon and nothing else, combine with the lack of nobles and military.
So kinda a challenge to build up a fort from scratch, and dependent on guests to wander by for armor, tools, and a helping hand taking care of the wildlife. oh and praying an axeperson wanders by your barebones tavern so you can take their axe and use it to chop wood.

didn't get my adventurer to pop up into the fort but I guess that more of a "noble has arrive" event. hopefully this doesn't end with a crash.

Adventuring in a wonderful new world. Started my first adventure as a dwarf, in a city around mid latitude. Hired a couple elves out of the keep and killed a bunch of bandits. Eventually went to investigate a tower nearby, and learned it was inhabited by fire summoners. I didnt get the chance to grab the slab before one of them summoned a fire man, which promptly set me and my companion on fire. I managed to kill it and toss away our burning clothes before either of us started melting, but then as we were running away into the forest another fire man appeared in the doorway and set us all ablaze again. This time we werent the least bit lucky, and though i killed it and jumped in a pool quickly i died of blood loss.

Second adventure started as a wizard, and but only in an abandoned cave far from civilization. I survived bogeymen by making camps, and found a hamlet inhabited by bandits. Got one of them to join me, and in a city a ways to the north of there he was killed by a patrol that decided to mug us.

I fled successfully and returned to the wilderness, where my killing of an echidna (the monstery snakey type, not adorable little pokey hamsters) gained me favor with a bunch of gnolls and some hamster people, who have become my companions. We built a little hovel in the desert and travelled to human lands looking for work. The gnolls had to remain behind after i found out humans immediately try to kill them.
Never heard of or seen fire summonrs or "Wizards" mod?

I just found a mountain titan that shoots fireballs. I found that I could only evade them by jumping, which I did until I was far enough away to fast-travel.
Upon stopping, I found that my companion, who had engaged the titan in battle, had come with me.

Fireballs are real annoying in that regard, similarly to webs - for some reason they cannot be blocked at all.

Oh, and the titan's fire breath showed up as 'fire' on the k-menu, but it was the golden color of dragonfire.

At least the game gives you web immune spiders to play as, there no vanilla fire immune creature to play in adventure mode.

so in a massive experiemnt on the playing as the Adv camp civ for fort mode I learn a good lesson, in making sure your adventurer won't starve to death before retiring.
as chances are if the fort has no booze the adventurer will sit there and die on their own.

Which might make testing to see what would happen "if you embark on top of the old campsite would the adventurer be playable?"
Ended up getting a new ruler of the camp when I discovered my adventurer's corpse on the fort and the game changed one of my citizens to a noble.
overall what I got out of this is learning how to manipulate labors with dfhack.


edit: well the new update is here. rolled a spider in hopes to see if toady change the bogeymen behaviors in any way.
so far they are still non hostile to you just now they lost the ability to comment on your performances. they will join you in musical number and performing just go silent while your performing or... well you get
Code: [Select]
bogeyman : during the whole performance.

Trying the new version, got an artifact quest, and was promptly killed in an ambush by a very aggressive dwarf vampire.

I was ordered to kill a howling beast in a lair a few days away. So I tread through the snow and reach the location. All I find is a naked peasant screaming at me about my weapon. I accuse him of being a demon and he just calls me insane and starts running away. So I air-decapitate him like the good anime character is supposed to. Get back to the lady, tell her about the peasant I killed and yet no one believes me he was the beast. What.

Quickly tested the new DF version to check if there was some change to the ai, created a regular human that for some reason spawned in an elven retreat despite there were human settlements around.
After fetching a couple of soldiers from a human meadhall that was filled with empty pedestals, i went to a dark pit to see how the identity stuff would work with the goblins asking for them.

I was disapointed to see while travelling that companion ai are still unable to follow you when swimming through a river, so i had to recatch them in travel mode as usual, but finally after navigating those annoying goblin area, i got into a tower as my AI were re-stuck in front of a river that was running through the site (and with being unable to use travel mode in the pits, no recatching the AI unfortunately)

So alone on top of a tower, a goblin asked my identity, so i could give a try to create one , things worked, i talked back to the goblin with my new identity and he immediately attacked after the greeting, i guess i gave an enemy identity :)
I fought back, and once i had hurt him enough, as usual the gob ran away.

But to my disapointement i noticed that despite -i was not sneaking- the several goblins that were around never once tried to attack me despite apparently i claimed the identity of an enemy (considering the asking gob immediately attacked) or at least help the gob i was fighting.
I thought maybe for some reason they were too terrified as everyone is with the emotion system, but none of those gobs ever tried to run away, it looks like the passivity problem is still there :/

I could then walk without any problem back to the river, withouts any gobs chasing me, swim through it so the companions stuck there could get back to me, leave the pits and walk back to a human hamlet and after killing their goblin lord (again the soldiers AI in the meadhall never went to fight help their lord, only my AI companions joined against the gob) i claimed the site to check what would happen after some more world updates in the legends.

I hope Toady will do something about this passivity problem.

Sounds like you found the wrong lair.
Naked peasant == Untransformed werebeast.
Howling beast == Probable night troll.
