I was playing around with Perfect World yesterday to get a nice volcano embark site.

Upon embarking i immediately got a message about cavern collapsing (the Volcano base collapsing into the Magmasea, draining the Volcano in the process) and the message about the horrifying screams etc ... because i had cotton candy on the SURFACE with the tube being open ...

That embark gave me a whooping 1 FPS and after about 10 minutes i got bored because everything was so slow. The woodcutter didnīt reach the trees i designated for cutting right at the start during those 10 minutes ;)

Needless to say the cavern collapsing messages kept on coming. Fun stuff !

Ah, yes, there's one thing you might want to be aware of if you try to play with this embark:

There are dozens of demons...and you are worried about capybaras?
If they were badgers, I could understand. They interrupt a lot of jobs.

Meh, half of them are steam demons. The other half don't look like they have special attacks. Your miner and pikeman might stand a decent chance of winning. And I mean decent in a relative manner.

But against three whole capybaras there will be no survivors.

yes. YES. YES!
this embark let me live a dream. I made my main entry hallway wind through the slade. I made a large combat area where I meet attackers with my forces, in the slade. Now whenever invaders show up I shout this at the top of my lungs:

Invaders: Our arrows will blot out the sun!
Me: Then we will fight in the SLADE.

"Yeah. My plan was to drop some kittens into the siege, and have my dwarves freefall into battle, landing on top of the kittens. The plan was kinda dumb though because the kittens were standing on grates, and the goblins killed them with arrows just as I was releasing the freefalling dwarves. So the dwarves weren't able to land on kittens and just fell and died."

I fear that each time it tolled out the hour, some part of our souls would mournfully yearn: "A puppy should have died just now, but didn't."

It's definitely a proper place to build a goblin fortress.

Keep embarking! Make everyone a marksdwarf and draft them! THE SURFACE HELL WILL BE CLAIMED!!!!!!!!!!

And when you do, I'd like you to post the save.


Unrelated to above:

I've heard my jokes called a lot of things, but never sarcasm.

Reminds me of something...

Oh, so they're infinite? Then here's what you do. You take a healthy swig of plump helmet wine, pull on your cat leather cap, grab your wooden training axe and go kill demons until their population reaches an acceptable number.

Or something like that.

How did I miss the existence of this thread?
(Don't attempt to answer that.  Down that path lies ... well I was going to say madness but you all run towards madness as if it was made from chocolate and puppies.  Just forget I said anything.)
