I will begin writing up the epilogue of Battlefailed just after I check if a reclaim is possible or not.

EDIT: PRAISE BE TO ARMOK! Reclaim possible but point-buy does not look like it will provide either enough skills or enough equipment to allow for Stuzung to be taken down. Given that bolts are back to being ridiculously deadly I figure my best hope is to make seven crossbowdwarves and make a show of it. I was possessed of enough foresight to pull the lever that opens the front gate, so the fortress should be accessible without knocking anything down. I'll keep a documentation of the reclaim whether or not Stuzung dies, but if it doesn't, I think I'm going to declare that Battlefailed has had its time, and that all things must end.

You know whats odd
When you started posting all the pictures of the dead, i got mad world stuck in my head. And now you just posted a song that is also from the donnie darko sound track.
Could battlesfailed be the fortress verison of donnie darko?

So the fort died to a slight spike in hostility?

Also, can I get the site and worldgen params?

Considering the site and state of battlefailed, a slight spike in hostility is jargon for the universe decicding to kill you.

I bring tragic news gentlemen - although embark is possible, the fort cannot be feasibly reclaimed because the reclaim has reset some of the flood prevention mechanisms that we used to stop the Blueness flooding in, and... well, now the Blueness is flooding in. Framerate's dropped pretty low and the dwarves can't enter the fortress because the water's in the way. I'm getting messages about workshops being toppled which means Stuzung is still down there, but without some means of blocking the flood there's no method of getting to him.

I think we've had it, people. I'm really sorry. Want me to write a proper epilogue now?

It is over.

The fort was hillariglorious, and also, lived to it's name by unability to battle siegers.

Just mine into the side and build New Battlefailed.
Let Stuzung drown in a mess of his own making. We can always de-flood old battlefailed when we get the resources too.

Bad Framerates are not going to be the cause of battlefailed downfall! It shall be the gods who have to break the game themselves to destory this fort!

Battlefailed is more then a fort, its an idea. Battlefailed represents what dwarf fortress is all about, and if this fort falls, then dwarf fortress falls. We have been though so much with battlefailed, so I ask you, the people, to suffer some more. Not for battlefailed, but for what it represents! It represents fun! AND I WANT SOME MORE GOD DAMN FUN!

Losing is fun.  Cheating just to prolong losing is not.  Nevermind.  What I mean is, at this point in time we would clearly lose if it weren't for the glitched miner.  The most natural course of action at this point is to die gloriously and with honor.
