I'll sign up for a turn, though with no experience with handling forts of this size in any kind of recent memory I can't promise much progress within that turn.

Its the 22nd of Galena.

Two demons broke into the fort today, while the masons were instaling the new draw-bridge. The ensuing figth told us we were at a serious disavantage, something met first hand at the head of my battalion. We lost 3 dwarves almost imediatly, wile not doing even a scratch to the enemy, and I was contemplating having the masons wall us in, and dying a hero's death, when the demons suddently looked back at the entrance, as if sensing a force beyond our understanding, and started to walk back to the fort's perimeter, while we just standed there, dumbfounded.

I imediatly called the masons in order to wall-of the fort's entrance for now, at least untill we have a more experienced military, and went to check on what had happened to the demons. The scene in front of the gates, close to one of the glowing pits, was so fantasticaly retarded that I almost puked while lauphing. The demons had been lured out of their figth with us by a DUCK! I have absolutely no idea how that thing got there, but I just sit back and prepared to enjoy the show of that litle plumy thing geting blown apart by the oversized demoniac things. I got more than I wished for.

One of the demons charged the duck wich, somehow, dodged and tried to hit the demon with his leg. The demon managed to jump into the nearby glowing pit to dodge. The last we heard of him were his cries as he fell down the unending hole, semmingly unable to fly anymore... The other used his dust atack and managed to blow the duck to oblivion, but also project himself into a nearby slade slope and get himself cripled.

I got several things to conclude from this.

First: Good thing we sealed out the fort, since a damm duck was able to do more damage to 2 demons than our 14 soldiers, including myself.
Second: We sould use those ducks we have "stored" for some scouting work...
Third: I hate most demons. I still like those steamy things we killed before, their remains are great as blankets!

The aftermat of the batle:

We lost 3 soldiers in the melle department. All recruits, and better yet, one was that anoying pissant Krosan, the one always whyning in the dinning hall about how wrong our justice sistem was, that we couldent arrest animals. However, another damm pissant soldier started calling himself Krosan. I think we may be dealing with a unknow retardeness disease here...

Also, there seemed to be some side-effects from that dust atack the demons had...

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Damm things hitch like hell, dint seem to go away either, fuck's sake...

Also, it appears all the engravers were busy pissing their asses of in laugher and forgot to engrave pictures of the duck figth. I had them throwed into the duck pit for 1 hour as punishment, when they came back they coulden't even speak, good for them.

In other news, it seems there was a mass of goblin ambushes during the time I was on the hell fort, all were either killed or taken into the cages. More meat for the arena. Also, the human caravan was killed by one of the squads, whatever.

The arena is almost complete, the initial part atleast. I ordered the placement of the first of the spike traps, the first goblin prisioners and the other furniture. The time is soon to come, were the grounds of the arena will get their first drops of blood...

You know something's wrong when the livestock has a better combat record than your military.

I got shown up by a fragging duck.

I got. Shown up. By a duck. A duck. A DUCK. A DUCK, A DUCKING DUCK, did more damage than me.

Fraggit, Noodle, clearly this is your fault for vicious torture of physics. Tampering with things beyond our ken has clearly come back to bite us in the form of Angry Physics. WE MUST SACRIFICE THE BATTEREY.

Never retreat!  Never surrender!

If physics wants to be angry, then we need to get angry too!  Beat physics back into submission!  Deploy our own duck hordes to battle the ducks of the Angry Physics!

The sacrifice this duck has made must be commended. His name shall be praised forever in Hall of Bestial Legends. Alongside Paindeer, we shall also chant the name of Netherfowl, the great avian hero who struck down two demons singlehan- erm... wingedly! May his beak glisten with blood eternally!

Speaking of which, I grabbed a save and tried finding him. Did Paindeer wind up dying?
