My fortress if filled with hateful dwarves
« on: May 26, 2010, 07:54:40 am »

I embarked to a beautiful location. a wide fast flowing river, plenty of forest land for lumber, and about five miserable dwarves.

i havent even had a migration yet, and already there are conflicts...seems that there a three main contributers a Miner, a doctor, and a farmer.
My doctor has a grude againts my farmer and miner
My miner has a grudge againts my doctor, carpenter AND the before mentioned farmer.
The farmer has only a grudge againts the miner
My Carpenter also hates the same two as the doctor
The farmer hates the doctor and the caprenter
My OTHER farmer hates the miner that hates the other farmer..
The only person who DOSENT have a grudge is my second miner
Who is freinds with them all..
So my question is Has this happend to an one else?
This is just insane...its like a really awful soap oprea...They are all angry and have the negitive thought of "talked to someone annoying lately" excpet that one miner.. who is just doing FAN-FRIKIN-TASTIC

Hi!

O.o I have never seen something like that. Having just one mutual grudge is the worst my dwarves ever came up with, but that setup ...

I hope you give this a try as it may be interesting to see how your fortress develops under those conditions (would probably make for interesting wedding parties).

Hi!

Of course, it lends itself to a divided city with all the factions angry at each other. If you are 31.xx, then this fortress would probably be a candidate for the separate burrows people have suggested.

Dwarf 1: Welcome to our fortress, my friend. By the way, where you heading?
Migrant: I thought I'd go to the dining hall down there and see what's up.
Dwarf 1: Ah! That dining hall is frequented by those dwarves from the Eastern edge. A good dwarf should not have anything to do with them.
Migrant: Thanks. But I think I will still first go there.
Dwarf 1: Get out of my sight, you filthy Eastern-lover!

That's pretty awesome, actually. You should have locked them away from the world and made the Dwarf  Fortress version of No Exit.

Lock the dwarves into an arena along with their grudges and wait for the blood to fly...

Two dwarves enter, one dwarf leaves!

Have them all be miners or woodcutters. Make sure lots of mining picks and axes are available.

Create a tiny 1x1 meeting zone.

Disable all other jobs except for farming.


THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!

I think I figured it out from one anecdotal incident in one of my forts: check their personalities. If they have opposing tastes in 2 or more areas, they'll develop grudges I think. In my case, I had someone who likes new ideas (intellectual discussions) and loves tradition become a mutual grudge with someone who dislikes intellectual discussions and is put off my tradition/authority.

Congrats, Psieye. This is the first time I've seen a derailed thread get put back on the rails.

You have a dwarven soap opera. I insist you dress them all as vikings and build the fortress out of soap.

Yes. Clearly a bug that ought to be fixed in the future, but exploit it in the meantime.

Brilliant. This will be saved for later.
