Um. Glass is apparently not particularly phased by magma. It crawled out and is headed back into the fort again.

This idea of Fortress>Adventurer>Fortress succession games is really interesting to me. People need to do more of them.

Also, the idea of a glass FB makes me laugh. Why not just hit it with an arrow and sweep up the resulting mess?

Alright, so, the glass FB wasn't too bad to kill. Once it climbed out of the magma, it got beaten on mercilessly by my military and eventually shattered apart.

While I was fighting it, another two FB's showed up, one made of peat and one of almandine.

The peat one went to pieces just by looking at it, and the almandine one was actually easier to dismember than the glass one.

Now I've got a pile of really weird body parts in my bone/shell/tooth/horn stockpile.

Use drawbridges to launch your beast parts at enemies.

Oh. PirateBob, this might interest you.

I've been making statues to line the road in, and I like to see what sorts of subjects my mason is focusing on. In addition to a half-dozen or so of my Countess cowering while surrounded with giant roaches - I guess he REALLY doesn't like her - he made this little gem:

Here's where it is:

Awesome :)  Glad to hear things are going well!

Scheisse. I don't want to go down with a tantrum spiral, it doesn't leave anything for an adventurer to do.

I'm doing my best to salvage this but... I might have to reclaim again after everyone is dead.

Maybe soem siegers will show up and put the survivors out of their misery.

Berserk people don't count in terms of population, so the fort can end while berserk people are still alive and thus hold someone for an adventurer to fight.

I suppose 'kill the berserk candy-coated legendary dwarf champion' is a pretty good Adventurers Needed. I hope that if they spiral that's how it goes.

I've decided that I'm interested in this. I am only a Dabbling Adventurer so... FUN.

I also don't follow (as in, don't understand) if there is a turn list for adventurers or not, or who is on it.
The way this works is after your fort falls an adventurer is sent to clean things out prior to a reclaim?

Well, it's more of a periodic challenge. I'll put the save up when something terrible happens and requires an adventurer to solve it, and we'll see who accomplishes their objective first.

If you lose adventurers that's cool, keep the save and keep going. Failures are history too!

So there is no turn list? I'll keep watching this thread, then. :)

Oops.

So I guess it's a race to see if some invaders who up to finish the fort off before the spiral gets everyone.
