By Armok, it's BACK! Boatmurdered!
« on: January 10, 2011, 01:07:45 pm »

Oh good god, it seems that the enthralling story of a one particular fortress is so well known, that even my dwarves know about it:

The engraver has put this monstrosity on a wall in my Exped's Leader's quarters.

................. but but but. What is that? Is that a randomly-generated nocturnal monster name, like "groom of the shade wife" or "night freak" or... oh, what the hell.

I don't mean to alarm you, but it appears that your Dwarves are all in fact elephants.

That's what happens if you use a non-vanilla game that adds various engravables.

I have a feeling your descriptor_shape_standard.txt has been modified to add a "boat-murdering horror" shape, which would make this completely meaningless.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

Not anything I've made myself, nor knew about.
Still, it's funny to see it, especially in someone's bedroom, hehe

Engraved on the wall is a image of Sankis Gatinbomrek and the marksdwarf Kadol Lokumad. Sanking Gatinbomrek is striking down Kadol Lokumad. DID I MENTION HE IS ON FUCKING FIRE!??

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.
