The hammerer is now an appointable position from the beginning...

Does this mean the royal guard is gone, or will the hammerer promote into it like the sheriff does as the captain of the guard with the fortress guard?

There is a royal guard in DF2010?!

Is the hammerer still going to need a hammer, or will he improvise if no hammer is available?  Can we set his weapon/equipment preference in the military screen?

Hm wonder if we are limited to hammers at all.  I can imagine getting a really big hammerer and giving them a two handed sword.

Son, I present to you our prized family heirloom passed down from and named by the very first hammerer... 'The Pillows of Softness' the peasant crafted, low quality, featherwood hammer.

I'm thinking of a situation where your hammerer is assigned both the "beat the craftsmen who didn't fulfill a mandate" detail and the "execute the depraved and powerful vampire who has been feeding on peasants" detail.  Equipment becomes a bit of a dilemma.

This new hammerer might actually solve the problem of doctors never getting any practice and losing skills.

In the latter case, you can send a military detail with him.

I have never had that problem.

I guess its not a huge problem since it seems that unskilled doctors do the job just fine, but it bugs me. You notice it when you first get some good security set up in your fort early in its history so that few get injured, yet you have decades to go in your planned megaproject. Every five years or so you'll have some catastrophy that will require every doctor in the house, but that's not enough work to keep skills up over time. No doctor has ever gained skill in my forts unless he was unskilled to begin with.

From the dev log, it sounds like you're done with Justice. You haven't mentioned implementing the Grudge mis-accusations that you earlier said you planned on, though. Did you just not mention them, are they going in soon, or did you change your mind? What about a converse situation with friends of the murderer being the only witness(es)?

Which is why he made the hammer from wood! It doubles as a really blunt stake!

It'll be interesting, if your "loves tradition" hammerer prefers to keep the old traditional hammer (becoming immediately attached to it, maybe) while a "defies tradition" hammerer instead chooses to get the best hammer in the fort.

The new hammerer sounds fun, but do we have any news on the new dungeon master?

Dungeon master to tame vampires, werewolves and necromancers? I like the way you think.

Presumably it waits for either the proper bugfix, or until entity positions like the "official hammerer" are "a priority within the larger framework again".
