Is it possible to name your weapon in adventure mode? I want my adventurer's sword to become an artifact. (abd most importantly make sure it doesn't break.

It is, I do it on accident all the time when trying to thaw my waterskin. Hit |I| (that's capital i, or shift-i) and it should open an advanced interaction screen, where you can select an item. Select your weapon and then you'll have the choice of naming it.

I'm not sure if it stops the weapon from breaking, though.

Edit: Formatting was wonky

Naming a weapon will indeed prevent it from accumulating further wear, though it won't remove existing wear.

Is morale and conversation fixed? The last time I played adventure mode I had a few problems:

- All NPCs would start crying and not defend themselves at all during combat

- Pages and pages of conversation messages between NPCs made it really hard to do anything in towns

Been trying my hand as a hippyelf, and I'm wondering if there is a way to actually follow the ethics of the hippycivilizations. By that I mean, can you actually pray to forces somehow (like you can to dwarven gods)? And can you acuire wood without harming innocent trees?

Does anyone remember the last version where morale and loyalty and stuff weren't entirely broken in adventure? Like where you could actually fight bandits or where killing vampires didn't make you a murderer? I have a feeling it happened in the 0.42 transition so the last would I guess be 0.40.24 but it might not have happened until the 0.43 transition, making it 0.42.06. Anybody remember?

Edit: Just tried 0.42.06 and it doesn't even run anymore at least on linux, probably because it's expecting 3 year old dependencies, so I guess this doesn't matter to me. I just miss the old days of adventure mode where there were things to fight other than megabeasts and random animals. Like, at the moment, you can walk into a bandit camp and nothing happens, then you can kill one of the bandits and maybe a couple of his pals are like "oh im sad" but still nothing happens. You could hunt down vampires before, and now they're just allowed to wander around freely. Adventure mode literally doesn't work anymore and hasn't for several years now and since I really only played adventure mode that means the entire game is broken for me.

has toady said anything about this BS being on his radar for improvements?

The vampire stuff definitely is an issue, yeah - I recall it still working during 40.x where vampires would actually turn hostile when exposed and nearby villagers would start attacking them - the main problem with bandits seems to be that the AI doesn't have a reaction for responding to nearby sounds (like the sound of fighting) - so most of the time the reason bandits dont fight as a group is because they just don't actually see you fighting anyone. Don't remember if its on the radar for being fixed next update, we'll have to see.

Bandits also ordinarily don't aggro you. They just get friendly and chat with you even if you walk into sight. The only bandits that aggro you are the ones harassing hamlets. The goblins that patrol outside dark pits and towers also don't aggro anymore in my experience.

i can't tell for adv. mode, but in 44.12 they reintroduced the dwarven psyche and needs. i use 44.09 because of that.

any tips for surviving gcs encounters in adventure mode?  turns out a named one is now roaming the surface in my world.  "tank the webs, let my companion get the kill" as a panic strategy backfired spectacularly when my companion decided there were other places he would rather be, and just ran off

Bow or crossbow. Also grab some companions as distractions and meat shields.

I've heard that it is possible to switch between Fortress mode and Adventurer mode on the fly via using DFHack but all my Googling attempts only bring up really old and obsolete results, and the Wiki doesn't have any guidance on this either. I have never played Adventure mode before but I would be interested in it if I could dynamically have one of my dwarves adventure out from the fort and then return, without having to retire-reclaim the fort as that brings up bunch of issues.

It's the changemode command. Switch from fortress -> arena -> take control of a creature -> switch to adventure mode. Works in reverse in a similar way.

Can adventurer vampires drink blood from things like cows and dogs and such?
