Is there any advantage to HFS?
« on: May 12, 2010, 10:46:44 pm »

I'm wondering if there is any possible positive effect of accessing HFS, or if its just a show of a fortresses power when people do it intentionally.

Adamantine mostly. Though its possible to be careful when mining out the super metal, you'll more often then not breach the HFS on accident. It'll also boost your fortress wealth, I think. As the articheture of the Hell counts as a part of your fort.

other than adamantine theoretically yes, if you have demons made of valuable materials and can thoroughly and efficiently kill them without destroying the bodies.

actually the architechture counts before you breach it. at least for some types (curious structure) I embarked on a map with a demonic fort, and it had 180000 created wealth at the start, though that may be due to the masterwork adamantine sword.

Its an old bug that first appeared from 40 series and vanquished. It should go away again, eventually.

Phew. I was worried I'd be getting high level nobles from the start.  :o
