It would appear that Untrustedlife is indeed using width parameters already.
Ack! I guess I'll have to live with the size then >_<

I used an adv mode crafting mod to make spleen-filled donuts. My current adventure companion is a harpy vampire (didn't find them as a vampire, I modded harpy wings to have [GRASP] and gave them a goblet of my blood).

So drinking blood to become a vampire is working properly in your game? When i tried in my 2025 year old world i drank a vampires blood and didnt become a vampire.
Yes but it might not have worked on ME, I just used the temple method.

What's the book about? Anything ironic?

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

I massacred an entire fortress, and I returned after some vault diving (through the death-defying magic of DFhack) and now there are dwarf and goblin corpses and their clothes stuck in the walls. Bizarrely, nothing else was shifted into a wall.

Not particularly, sadly. Just a generic title about heliocentrism. :P

So a lord named Rope Tellvault who was the lord of a local meadhall sent my adventurer, a wide eyed young ambitious swordsman named Ino Pointedstable. On a suicide mission to a nearby tomb called Bowbent. How did this happen you ask? Well.

You see in my ambition to become the legendary hero i was destined to become I had inquired about local troubles and Rope notified me that bandits had moved into a nearby tomb, called Bowbents. He told me to go to a tomb and take out the bandits there. Being the ambitious swordsman i was, and thinking nothing of bandits, as why would a bandit be able to kill me, HA. I took him up on his challenge. I traveled to the tomb, and started looking, and in the process of looking, and breaking into several tombs, every single one in fact, i ran into several traps, breaking my legs, destroying my liver, and brusing my spleen. My cuts later became infected, but i was still looking for the bandits as they have to be here somewhere, right. Several very dangerous traps, and no bandits anywhere later. I decided to bail, and was easily slaughtered by bogeymen in the night.

However, it Turns out there were no bandits there, in fact no bandits had ever moved into that place in its entire history. I checked legends later to see what was up, and it turns out he (Rope) had recently become obsessed with his mortality and sought to extend his life by any means.

I unfortunately died looking for the non-existent bandits there.

The only time i've ever been lied to in this game before this was when a vampire told me to go to a cave (with a dragon in it), to take out bandits. So this came as a surprise to me.

TLDR: In other words, i was sent on a mission to my own oblivion, probably because he was worried i would kill him later. Or, as i like to imagine, as some part of a ritual to extend his life, by any means. Via the death of unwitting wide eyed young adventurers.

That's really cool! :) I had no idea NPCs in the current version of DF were capable of that kind of foresight or manipulation. Guess Toady already had a basic framework for villain schemes, he just needed to expand on it and get a bunch of convoluted networks in order. :P

How did Eri Exitcreatures settle in a tomb without disturbing it? Did that guy just settle in the area around it?

You arrive, and then you never leave. Sounds pretty "settled" to me.

I've been messing around and adding entities things to my Masterwork world. Recently, while my human hero was visiting a village's well for water, he ran into a crowd of (fully geared) dark-elf prisoners crying for help, being driven along by their grey dwarf captors. He offered to free them, and the dark elves suddenly decided that they were free and joined my party. My company of three grey dwarf mercenaries ended up being supplemented by 10 dark elf wrestlers and an arquebus-bearing master crossbowelf. We easily overwhelmed their former captors. Later, we ran into another group of prisoners, but this time when I took the initiative and ambushed their captor, the prisoners panicked, perforated my hero with crossbow bolts, and then fled after wounding most of my party. I guess they thought that we meant to kill them all. The hero's adventure ended when visiting a dwarf fortress that had been claimed as a base by a fledgling necromancer. The undead hordes decimated his party and he plunged his body into the magma forges to avoid service in undeath.

Maybe the giant alligator managed to kill a lot of people in world-gen, and so it seems a greater success than it was?
