Did I not just specify that I lost?  All dorfs died except my military commander.
And I was just WAITING for someone to say this.  Everyone always seems to doubt me.
Sorry, though, but it DID happen.


EDIT: not mad.  I just looked; I did NOT specify.  My apologies.

I know I'm being pretty harsh, but it just ticks me off when someone has the gall to have a thread proclaiming they just won the game and yet not have a single pic, then saying that something bad happened to ruin the achievement and now it's as if the whoooole thing never happened.

Bah, he's just thrilled that he dug a shaft and missed all the caverns and the lava sea.  If you want to go sour-puss, the topic is not that interesting, but I can understand why the author posted it, as one who always manages to hit cavern and have to mess with walling in before the forgotten beasts eat my dwarves.

As of now though the thread is about the kobold who pulled out the sword.  That's pretty funny.

For the OP, those kobold thieves have trap avoid, so they won't hit a trap even if they're visible.  This is something that should probably influence fortress design.  I think it makes most sense to have an entrance corridor rather than an entrance staircase, and that the first room the corridor runs into should be the main barracks, and there should be a dog chained there such that it's impossible to get further into the fort without going past the dog.

There was a thread a few months ago about how a central staircase is a huge security problem and I have to agree with this.  Unwelcome visitors can go a long distance very rapidly, fighting on multiple Z-levels is hard, you don't really want to be fighting in your dwarven reactor room or your dining room, and you'd prefer that your legendary armorsmith isn't the one who detects the intruder first.

I had epic fortress defenses already.  It was just my MAIN staircase.  But I did have a fort around it.  :l  That 'bold was just bloody lucky.

The most difficult part of colonizing HFS is the FPS drop.

Seriously. Danger Room + Cotton Candy = Unkillable dorfs (aside from the godforsaken dust)

I've literally had a squad of 10 dorfs kill off a hundred or so clowns without even a wound. But the FPS drop....oh god. I've been meaning to set a cap of 40-50 dorfs and try it instead of the 250 dwarves from immigrants and babies, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

There needs to be a story written about that Kobold. Did you happen to catch its name?

I just won the game. I have no pictures or logical account statements to prove it. I expect forum celebrations, possibly in the form of a textual parade.

I'm throwing my vote into the ring; give us the kobold's name.  I need to write a ballad about him.  Or her, even.

You won once a message shows up that you won.
Unfortunately, this message will show up after you played for infinite hours.
Also, be dwarfy, go to Adventure Mode, find the Kobolds Cave, let them cut your arms and legs off AND FIGHT BY FRICKEN BITING THEIR FACES OFF.
Steal the Candycane back and place it in your fort. Profit.
I THINK reembarking regenerates the Candycane.
I once had 3 Candycanes on top of each other.
Yes.
Each on the same square.
