It was all according to plan after all, no self-respecting dwarf will allow himself to be cornered by elves and not be planning to tear each and every one limb from limb.

I was so slow because I was hauling a bunch of severed heads and bodyparts to make an undead army from. I resurrected them all and survived, but I had to leave the area because there were literal hundreds of elves coming in and it started to seriously lag the game. I think about forty or fifty of them died, but I did not count.

I've been assassinating powerful historical figures and dragging them back to my base in a frozen wasteland. I call it the "corpse library", because it looks a little like a library. As you can see, I have already begun the assembling of my army. I chose to build it in a frozen area adjacent to a wasteland so that the bodies would perhaps preserve a little longer.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
The room on the bottom right is a freezer, exposed to the elements for maximum chill. It's to store trophies, bodies which are too irrelevant for a shelf, and planned weapons. For instance, there is a huge polar bear population in the wasteland just west of me. I intend to fill backpacks full of their severed heads and give them to a companion, as a kind of undead suicide bomb.

The room left of the freezer is for historical figures which are large and imposing enough to face a real threat as zombies. So far, it's just night creatures, but I know of a location where a dead titan is, and I intend to bring the body back with me.

The room that I am in is intended for historical figures which have enough relevance for their corpses to be stored, but may not be physically large enough to truly become powerful undead slaves. So far, I have killed few worthy of my criteria. The only one who fit was an elf-turned-goblin who was responsible for tens of murders and hundreds of babysnatchings before joining back with his elven civ, but I threw his body into a volcano after I killed him by gouging his face off and breaking his neck, for stealing my (now undead) companion's only child.

The room to the right of me, above the freezer, is just a shelf for bodies with no historical relevance but statures which make them very useful to the army. I intend to travel to the ocean and kill whales to bring them back to the shelf. If I can find elephants or giant creatures, they will also be put there.

When I am done assembling my army, I will pay a tomb a visit for the sake of getting some meatshields, then I will track down the elven armies and give them the fight they deserve.

A crash that made me extremely annoyed, that's what. Don't know what caused it or why it happened, but now I need to restart completely. :(

Oh and a recent adventurer of mine "Tolzir Ancientblood the Amusing Buck" is legendary in Knapping, Archery, and Throwing. Now what to do with him...

Praying helps?

I was trying to craft some masterwork bone rings. But they kept coming out exceptional at best.

So I tried to gain a little focus by talking to my deity.
Greet: "Hello Etest".
Express your emotions (something general): "Do your duty".

Needless to say the next bone ring craft came out as a masterwork. I guess you just have to tell them gods what they are supposed to do.

I am a human demigod of the confederation of crystals, a small beleaguered human civilization tucked directly in the middle of the continent. While our people have no great armies or epic cities, we have an important place in the history of this world, having created the only three artifacts in history associated with a human civilization. The first religious order, the faith of lobsters, had an artisan tradition- when the grand apex of the order perished, their successor consecrated the death with the creation of artifact clothing, a jute skirt, a rope reed hood and a silver earring. This tradition was cut short in the year 79, when the elves of the woods of dying waged a savage war- launching 41 attacks, culminating in the siege of our capital dreamdistance, the ruining of the temple and the theft of our religious treasures. Since then the temple has been an empty husk, the line of leaders broken and no worshippers. 
 
I set out for retribution, to restore these artifacts to Dreamdistance. I quested for a while, making my name as a slayer of foul night creatures and a protector of the innocent. My name established, I set out to find the descendants of the last apex, and recruited them and a gang of other soldiers to lay siege to Rainwomen, the capital of the woods of dying and home to the elven queen Thone, holder of the artifacts. My monster hunter career left me with one working arm, but even so I could still climb, and I systematically laid waste- leaving my companions at the bottom of each tree I climbed up, stunned the pitiful elves with my warhammer and tossed them from the trees for my companions to brutalize. I cornered Thone at the top of the tallest tree, subdued her, poked out her eyes and ripped out her tongue. I crushed her head into an unrecognizable pulp and retrieved the legacy of my people, restoring the artifacts to the temple of my god.

Well in experimenting with Vermin eggs I ended up with a Newborn frail Fairy that I decided to just raise. Learn that you could convert vermin into a creature by hatching vermin eggs.

now I wonder if one could adv reaction an egg and dfhack that to hatch, also realize with adv fort one could take a kobold egg build a nestbox with it and over time the egg will incubate itself especially if said egg was fertilized

That's unusually wholesome of you, Rumrusher. Most of the time your DFhack experiments lean more toward the "abomination against nature" end of the scale.

If only hatching vermin eggs could be accomplished without dfhack... You can't get them to sit on a nest box in fort mode, because they're not creatures, and once they're off the nest box, the eggs will die.

this did is off the backs of discovering one could hatch a fluffly wamblr creature, and that the process setting this up came with the realization of Eggs when fertile flag is set and used in construction of an nestbox building will incubate themselves with no mother or foster mother needed, and if you set the incubation timer to a high number like say 200,000 the egg nestbox will instantly hatch into the newborne. I guess with fort mode there probably a check that kills the egg if not met.

edit : well same goblin ended up the parent of 10 pixies.

I wonder if that would work in fort mode. Normally it does check if the mother is sitting on the nest box, but if it's already flagged as being incubated just because it was in he nest box when it was built, maybe it doesn't check again? But how will you get fertilized eggs into an unbuilt nest box in he first place?

I'm an Outsider who acquired a slab through DFHack and became the world's first necromancer, swam to the practically uninhabited island east of the mainland, raised all the corpses at the shrine of the Hill Titan my previous adventurer and his entourage killed, used them to overrun and massacre the Dwarven colony I set up a few years back called Problemcave, raised them, then led my combined army to the nearby town of Springtrial, which said previous adventurer and his surviving followers had built for themselves.

They were all legendary fighters after the ordeal with the Titan, as well as the many battles they fought passing through Human towns on the way to the coast before swimming to the island (Note, every single civ is at war with each other in this world).

After they drowned in bodies they too joined my undead legions, after which I stepped into the town's temple, which housed a simple wooden coffin containing the Hill Titan's body.

Guess what I did, answers on a postcard.

I then used my 200+ thralls to build a grand palace for myself, stocked with all the cooked meals I liberated from Problemcave. Now I wait for myself to bring all the wars to an end in Fortress Mode, at which point I shall make the journey to the mainland and bring The Golden Age to an end, making room for the Age of Silence.

I also plan on donning a disguise and sneaking into my old fort, now the Mountainhome, called Skinnedseals. Deep within it's walls lies a vault I made, guarded by legendary hammerdwarves weilding silver hammers. Inside said vault is enough adamantine weaponry to equip the entire Dwarven military. There's gonna be a bit of a heist. I plan on lifting an adamantine spear for myself as well as any armor that will fit. The Lord of Silence should look the part, after all.

There's naturally a contingency plan in place should I be killed; I plan on writing many books on the secrets of life and death to leave at any libraries I pass by. I may fall, but death will still come knocking.

This is truly an inspiration to all.
