Finally finished reading this.

Wow.

I'm really surprised you managed to hold out for so long despite all the insanity. The combination of thorough documentation, masterwork journals and some bizarre outbreaks of madness and horror made it a wonderful read. I saulte you all.

Fun read.

Now.. to compile the story and fan fiction on a page that doesn't have all the out of character chatter.

If I wanted to do things the "easy way", then I wouldn't be playing Dwarf Fortress.

A very nice story: a lot of FUN, lots of ups and down.

My favourite part is definitely the tantrum spiral that almost got the fortress. That was an awesome recovery. How the two-miners-that-got-stuck bug got explained and participated in the story. The FAILCANNON was awesomely FUN.

That last FB was definitely the gods trying to solve Andreus' soul imbalance.

Anybody still trying to make a reclaim work or is that completely impossible?

Congratulation to everyone who participated.

I've got a reclaim kinda sorta running. It's only early summer and I just lost an axedorf.

Yeah, I tried that, drafting dwarves to the military and including boots in their uniform, and it didn't seem to help really.

Okay, let us begin the process of organizing a sequel.  First we should figure out how to proceed.  The turn list could continue on from Andreus, for everyone that's interested in it.  I'd like to start things off with a prologue adventure quest to Battlefailed as seen in the final save, if that's okay with everyone, I downloaded 'Battlefailed_TheEnd.zip,' and just need to do the cannon-oar word swap and raise the value of the now-highly-rare nickel silver.

Any advice on dealing with Stuzang?

Yes.  Have a coffin ready.

Slightly (slightly) more seriously, try throwing adventurer after adventurer at him.  Might actually get lucky.

Drop a cave on him.

And, remember to write in how and why we can make blocks out of bone now. Recovery of Alchemist's notes perhaps?

Continuing with the current turn order sounds like a plan. I agree with Zathel about including the bone block discovery -- I hope we can create an actual dwarven alchemist in the sequel.

I'm sure we all look forward to seeing what you put together!

create a long winding secondary entrance that is equipped with a ballista, with any luck you'll be able to shoot him with a few giant bolts before he goes down.

Get the body, make a forgotten beast chitin coat.

I found a potential site for FailCannon:

If you guys like it I'll start a new thread.

I wholeheartedly approve a second iteration of Battlefailed, Failcannon would, of course, be a superb name.  I will humbly submit myself for a year of stewardship when the new thread opens.  I want to know what happened to Zon, he was my favorite.  It sounds as though the FB didn't fight fair suffocating everyone (that it didn't rip limb from limb).
