My first deadly forgotten beast!
« on: December 22, 2010, 01:37:45 pm »

I got a zinc quadruped with poison gas that caused bleeding out. The majority of my military just died, but eventually I managed to take it down.

All my previous ones were pretty harmless, but this one makes up for it. I doubt I'll get the rot, since the afflicted died in seconds.

Only in Dwarf Fortress would you try to catch a mermaid to butcher her and make trophies out of her bones

You might be surprised. Dwarves can catch a syndrome by handling the corpse of a soldier who died from that syndrome.

I had forbidden all of them just in case, but testing revealed that it was safe to handle.
