25th Felsite, 514



Well we all know what this means.





I swear, if it weren't for the fact that every time they see them they hack them to bits, I'd swear that the goblins were in league with the elves.

Our militia can't possibly repel firepower of this magnitude so there's only one thing for it - the FAILCANNON must be deployed. Due to unfinished maintenance work a former overseer attempted to perform on it, it cannot be deployed automatically. There's only one thing for it.





The deployment shaft begins to fill with the Blueness of Malodor's befouled waters and I prepare to commit to memory the faces of the goblins as they are inundated under a tide of... wait, what?



Goddamnit! They've just moved to the beach, where FAILCANNON can't reach them - wait, what?!

It's named FAILCANNON and you suspected it will work?

Honestly.

Oh Armok. The FAILCANNON is aptly named, it seems.

Also I just got ninja'd.

Thank Armok it wasn't magma.

I can't wait till someone finally hooks up FAILCANNON to magma, just so it turns out the plumbing for the pump stack is leaky and hot searing death spills over Battlefailed. Couple that with accidental deconstruction of main power valve lever so the magma won't stop flowing.

Well, at least we know the problem is easily fixed. You just need to remove that floor hatch, or find out where it leads and wall it off so it doesn't drown half of battlefailed the next time. Also, to the Elves died again - you would really, really think that they would learn about the goblin by now. Or at least be a tad suspicious.

3rd Hematite, 514



The end result of FAILCANNON's deployment are two extremely damp elks, drenched hoof-to-horn in the foul water of the Blueness.



On a slightly more positive note, the Eternal Machine is in and of itself well on its way to completion, but a curious issue strikes me. I cannot work out through which combination of its control levers it will correctly activate. I must consult the schematics further, and see if I can divine the correct method by which it should be initialised.

So we got monsters above, monsters below, dwarves in the middle and a party in the dining hall. Sounds good to me.
If all else fails, remember one thing:  kittens are delicious, nutritious little goblin-baiters, cavern explorers, and ambush-finders.

This is a great fortress, I've really enjoyed reading it.

I didn't see if you solved the problem of the floating dwarves in your arena.  Thought you might like to know, I had an eternally suspended dwarf in my fortress and I managed to get him unstuck using Runesmith.  I built a stable surface for him to stand on and then found him in Runesmith.  A suspended dwarf is flagged as being a projectile, so all I had to do is find him in the list and then uncheck the projectile Flag under the flags tab in Runesmith.  Once I unpaused my game, he started walking on the surface I built and went right back to work like nothing happened. 

Hope this helps!

And when Battlefailed will be close to finally succumbing to one threat or another, they will wake from their sleep and deliver the fury of Armok upon the enemies of dwarfkind! (Even if stuck moody dwarf prevents us from ever creating another artifact).

Also, I am pretty sure the reactor will work fine. Only thing it needs is water. The basic power station (pump+2 wheels) is something I've taken from magmawiki, so there should be no flaw there. Only problem I can envision is the gear labeled "main power gear" collapsing upon deactivation when reactor finally starts running.

Listen, can we work on a compromise? Can we unfuck the one with the strange mood, and leave the other guy there?

Agreed, but have a cave-in trap ready when you thaw him out. He may insta-berserk.
