You could also try to capture every sea serpent both female and young in a cage then place the cage on a and use that to release the once you want to keep. The rest can be killed easily.

On Evil biomes, isn't to possible to get only one of skeletal, zombie or evil creatures? IIRC, an evil biome with skeletons will never have zombies or evil monsters. So no skeletal Sea Monsters.

In my experience, single undead embarks are more common (*only* zombies, or *only* skeletons) but I've had both on one map before. Not as *often*, mind, but it does happen.

Anecdotal evidence. Take it as you will.

This fortress is turning into some kind of supervillain lair or something.
You do remember that you've been farming gigantic wingless dragon-fish for profit and Fun, right?

Very impressive, this certainly marks a significant progress in "dwarfology".

Maybe embarking across a Haunted biome and a Terrifying biome?  I remember hearing there was a difference between the two in terms of undead stuff they like to generate.

There should be ghostly undead. But that would take up tons of fps.

I can't get a savage ocean to generate. How'd you get it to appear?

Low elevation, high evil, high savagery.

I used the default settings, but I had to generate many maximum-size worlds and search them extensively by hand to find an appropriate site.  It took a while.

Has anyone figured out yet how Sea Serpents work in .19? The raws say that they lay eggs - does that change how we breed them?

Looks like I'll have to start a new seaside fortress and build a sea serpent farm from scratch again to find out.

I'm already working on a 3x3 with 2 savage oceans. My money is on Sphalerite getting the serpents up and running first though.
