At some point we should have a summit on the general feasability of a reclaim, after we've each done our own research into the matter. I would highly value SethCreiyd and Urist Imiknoris' inputs on this matter as I get the impression they're the experts in the Dwarf Fortress field.

Why thank you. I have the save, now to crack it open and see what horrors await in the world of dwarves.

Now would be a good time to mention that I have no clue how reclaim works? Personal Science Time. Or has it changed from 40d?

EDIT: Something ambushed something down on Z-96. Checking with dfreveal.

Result: A gobbo lasher found our buddy Stuzang.

And another beast (Nagnod, water blob) has ambushed as well.

Thank you for the excellent epilogue, Andreus!

Note to self for future succession forts: implement panic rooms & plan for anti-flyer defenses. I'm having a problem with giant bat-mounted goblin siegers in my current fort. Stuzang looks ten times worse.

Holy fuck this place is awesome. The entire goddamn fort is flooded, there is (as far as I can tell) no breach point for water to get in, and the only feasibleway to drain it involves the third cavern layer so GET DIGGING YOU STUPID DWARVES. I know it's damp stone, just mine it out.

EDIT: Ambush #3. My guess is that the diamond slug is still on fire. If it is, I can stop digging and just let the fire evaporate the water.  8)

"Living on" means training and farming while the fort drains and reclaiming Upper Battlefailed one z-level at a time. I have no hope for Lower BF.

My adventurer scout died rather quickly. I don't want to talk about it, it was like something H.P Lovecraft would write.

I'm kind of sad, but I'm also kind of relieved that battlefailed didn't end on my turn :p

Guys, you have done a marvelous job. It was truly superdwarvenly. Andreus, i think we all knew that it would end with you. It seemed fated. And what a way to go. Im still not sure how one forgotten beast was so badass, ive never had that much trouble with them, but still it was awesome. Poor Twobeard.

I shall raise a keg to Battlefailed and drink to its glorious misfortune

We shall remember them... The sons of Battlefailed.

Lets just say that you wouldn't look at skeletal elk the same way ever again.

EDIT: Until i get my far superior computer back in the mail, I have to use this piece of junk. So temporary out of the business of saving battlefailed.
