My nightmares jumped from barely 5 straight to 8.  Now I'm stuck in a hotel that's 100% not a mental asylum.

Stomped by the ork warboss.

I was doing well in my first attempt and got to the second to last phase, but while trying to stomp gretchin for health, the boss ran me over and killed me.  What followed was 6 more attempts where he rapidly stomped my butt.  I'm not even sure what I did differently that let me win the next time.

Entered a sewer in Godsreach, Mournhold. Got instantly pummeled to death by a goblin.

For my first game after a few years of not playing, I created a world with high savagery and a high number of beasts. I remember my previous few forts just becoming boring, as my biggest challenge was making bedrooms for all the migrants.

As if to punish my hubris, a wereantelope arrived before I had any weapons or traps to speak of. Of course, he neglected to kill any of the peasants or children that arrived in the last migrant wave, but instead murdered my hunters, miners and farmers before running away.

Always bring a weapon.

picks are decent weapons.

Actually I always bring like 2-3 picks and a copper helm.


Guess what the helm is for?

I bought Transistor in a recent sale.

I made it to the first named boss. I think it's the double-attack she does that keeps doing it to me, because the first one destroys any cover.

My setup for the curious/advice-givers.

One of my favorites that I've yet to complete...

Can't give much advice about avoiding attacks, but remember that backstabs do more damage, Crash inflicts a status effect that makes the enemy take more damage, and those two stack. A good way to do a lot of damage to one enemy is to Jaunt behind them, use one Crash, then a bunch of Lances. Lance already does a lot of damage, and it'll do even more with the bonus for backstabbing and crashed.
