Too late for that. The exact same thing roguester said just happened.



The gray colored 'k' down in the bottom left is the thief, who has stolen a cheap yellow jewel. The entire camp chased him down and ripped him apart limb from limb, but not before he killed about five kobolds with his dagger and seriously wounded others. The ENTIRE GROUP of kobolds is now picking sides, some of them are listed as Friendly and some are Hostile, but the whole group dispersed and has fled in all directions, picking fights with whoever they run into. They uncovered another thief but didn't bother attacking him. I am hereby locking my doors and arming all my Dwarves with steel and adamantine maces and hammers in preparation for the Kobolocalypse.

They're actually hostile? That's strange, I had a friend who embarked in a human fortress that had some kind of demon kangaroo that was killing all the humans, but it wouldn't attack him. The Goblins that were on the map at the time also wouldn't kill him. hmm. I guess he was just lucky.

(It was actually a demon kangaroo twisted into human form with external ribs, it chanted ceaselessly.)

The Great Kobold War has ended. The Friendly Kobold faction has won, no hostile Kobolds remain on the map.

Death toll:
71 Kobolds dead
20 Kobolds alive

This all by the first Autumn. Much fun.

Looks like loyalty cascades affect non-player civs as well. Interesting.

One particular Kobold by the name of Thrukukulchmer Morultastrod Egeth Vumshar seems to be 'chief' among the Kobold tribe now. (No one else has that long a name, must have done most of the killing)

No significant change so far. Kobolds continue to gather in the pile of useless junk, rain and thieves be damned. Two full sets of Adamantine armor have been made, and a giant crocodile of a Forgotten Beast showed up. One of my bone carvers died to being stabbed by a Goblin snatcher because I didn't have any traps yet, I had Adamantine fever through-and-through.

Just thought I'd let you know how the bug of "surface kobolds" comes up. 

Notice the stream running through the site?  During worldgen, a stream got placed on the same location as a cave.  The result is a bug in which there is no cave, but worldgen still places creatures as if there were, just slapping them on the surface.  I had a similar thing happen a while back, but with a cave full of ettins and elkbirds. 

Good times.

If they're unarmed as you say, it'd be much easier just to send in a massive war dog army!

If they are friendly just leave them there to soften your first siege up a bit!

The Kobolds have been annihilated. My first Goblin ambush party just showed up in their camp, armed with hammers and spears, and wiped out the whole tribe. As they had copper or higher body armor bare hands didn't even scratch them. They are ignoring my surface Dwarves and animals and hunting the remaining Kobolds now. I consider this a perfect opportunity to test the power of Adamantine-equipped Dwarves.

The seed and stuff should be fairly easy to get... I forget the exact process though.

Yes. Just copy the save folder, load the copy, abandon it, go into legends mode and export the information. There should be a button on the bottom. I want to instigate said loyalty cascade and build a tower for the friendly kobolds.

*sigh* I should really read the post dates before replying. :-\

No need to abandon.  Just hit escape and then go to Export Local Image.  The just export a single z-level. In your base DF directory will be a text file with all the world gen parameters and seeds.  Keep in mind modded RAWs could alter the history of the world so a kobold camp may never be founded at that site.

You need to make said elf leather into the most amazing work of art.  Embed it with every kind of gem you have, stud it with metals, and sew images into it.  Erect a shrine outside your fort with that in the center.  Let the elves know that you view their very skin as naught more but a medium for your dwarves to work on.

So, uh, how did those adamantine maces and hammers work out in the end?

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.
