Are they perhaps 'cool but rude'?

Will the frequency of beast rampages ever be nerfed. My current world's Dwarven civilisation has had 248 leaders over 250 years. Two of which starved to death. The rest were killed by night hags and gloom trolls.
A quick inspection of other civilizations in that world shows a similar pattern.

EDIT: Question removed for two reasons:
1. No one can kill hags/trolls outside of duels right now.
2. Kings were mentioned as overly-common candidates for necromancer training in the devlog. Similar problem.

If an Elf eats a vampire will it become a vampire?

my forts usually slow to 40-60 FPS after 4 or 5 years at 100 popcap

My 3 FPS

Let me show you it  :-X

Okay so I realized the other day that I have actually been running the SAME FORT for the nearly-a-year since the last release. I haven't had as much time to play as I used to, pesky growing up, but it has many years into it. Fortunately I upgraded to a machine with a bit more oomph and I have been meticulously avoiding things I have found to be FPS drains in the past so it's still up around 19FPS during normal circumstances.

When the new version comes out, I will respectfully retire Obeyrang as equal in fame and glory to my long-running 40d Paddlecolumns which was ended by the Great April Fools Launch of 2010.  :D

You kidding? Sometimes It feels like Rampages should occur more often then once every 4 years. What do they do in the mean time?

The issues with Important people are as follows.
A) The game doesn't project how "defended" or "unobtainable" a character would be. While a king COULD be taken (there are certainly stories of kings being ambushed by thugs) it should be very unlikely and the King's entourage should scare attackers away or even injure/slay them.
B) The Non-historical figures are not a valid target. Inspite of the fact that they should consist of the majority of the casualties.
-I think it is just somewhat of a placeholder. So during a dragon rampage it will kill dozens of unimportant peasants but the important part would be the historical figure.

Hmm can't think of a C.

Every time he updates the devlog and it isn't the new version announcement, I'm crestfallen. ESPECIALLY when the update seems to imply it'll be far longer of a wait than I thought.

god damnit.

I'm not going to complain so long as the wait doesn't pass the one-year mark.

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

I predict the new version will come out within the first few days of February. Possibly 1/2/12.

If dwarves decided to live in trees like hippies, they'd still do it better than the elves.

I predict that by saying that, you have doomed us all.

Although I sincerely hope you are correct.

What's wrong with using magma? That's almost always the easiest method.
I have issues channeling it properly to do that method. I end up flooding the fortress with magma.

Groundhog Day, eh?  If it doesn't come out, will we have to wait six more weeks? ;)
