I wonder if the blue stuff is included in the list?

As for vampires I wonder how world gen decides if profaning the temple turns you into a vampire or a werecreature. Maybe in future versions there will be different kinds of profaning and other methods (druidic rituals, cursed items or even the old classic bored gods)

I'm a bit disappointed that it seems like we won't be able to chain sun fearing vampires outside in df mode for make-shift torches. That said it would be nice to have a definite way of creating fires now that we're going to be besieged by undead hordes that will keep coming back.

Unfortunately, if their weaknesses limited to weapons materials then... well, you can make short swords out of any stone, remember? Any of them.

Hasn't that been broken for a long time, though? Last I remember, the material for a stone short sword wound up being the *wood* used to make it, not the stone.

I'm pretty sure it's all working now, as I've made some Sylvite Short Swords in my current fort. Unless it's using the wood material and calling it the rock material, which seems unlikely. However, I should warn that they're not necessarily much better than wooden short swords.
It always worked. The old bug was that it was naming the sword after the wood instead of the rock.

Awesome, man. I've got stuck between 12th and 13th in the series.

On an on-topic note, Will were-creatures be possibly undead?

The thought of all my dwarfs turning into skeletal elves carp badgers DRAGONS terrifies me.

No, it wasn't just the name, it was the material itself. Otherwise, that slade short sword I made would have weighed a bit more. That was a long time ago, though.

There is a whole lot of music I genuinely enjoy that most other people only seem to appreciate on an ironic level. Rick Astley, for starters.

Bring on the mundane arc!  The little, tiny things are the ones that define tone the strongest.

Yes.

I think now hovels and the such will have beds, tables, chairs the such again so that the poltergeists in haunted houses have something to throw at you.

Really though, hovels needed beds, tables and chairs in the first place, more then they needed ghosts haunting them.

No one likes Journey ironically, everyone LOVES Journey.  Thinking that just shows how uncool you are, square.

The World Without Knifebear A much safer world indeed.
regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

"Fear not, the night creatures will still come for you"....

Only in Dwarf Fortress can you say this without being eye-twitchingly and brain-foamingly insane.
