I remember someone saying dwarves who'd lost their fat were nearly impervious to heat.  Could you manipulate syndromes this way to have a surgeon remove all that unnecessary fat from a few lucky cadets?

Dwarven liposuction? Actually, that would be useful since dwarves always get really, really fat in my forts.

This solution would not be very dwarven, were it possible, and otherwise the answer is 'no'. By this logic I am 100% sure that 0% of what I have just said has helped to answer your question. Sorry.

In all seriousness, a solution like this would be glaringly obvious. It might have been among the first things he has tried.

im trying that, i mean if it works it means ALL dorfs are blind. theres only one way to know, a terrifying biome.



It would appear that I have succeeded. All my dorfs were killed by zombie horses, none tried to even run.

So... male elves destroy the eyes and cause pain, while female elves rot the fat and paralyze for some time?

In Runesmith, there are vision flags when you select a dwarf ranging from good to missing. I don't know if you specifically want their eyes plucked out, but checking the missing flag ought to make them blind.

Everything about that successful operation was astounding.  Someone needs to make a comic about the movement from testing forts to successful eye surgery.  From the "Dwarf cancels ‼Science‼: Interrupted by Dragon" to "The stray elf has exploded!" to plummeting elves onto unwary soldiers and the accompanying clumsy woodcutter with poor spatial sense, culminating ultimately in the statue of darkness.  That, my friend, was astounding.  I cannot put into words the amount of awe and majesty that you have so casually lain down upon us.  And that should mean a lot, as I write fairly well and know many words.

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

I'd assume it is possible to mod out eyesight or find a much easier way of distributing the syndrome , But I find the the awkward method I'm using leaves the game more balanced and gives me wonderful opportunities for weaponising elves.(i'm now considering an orbital elf canon that will rain squishy whining disease ridden destruction on marauding groups of goblins)

I'm liking the dwarven liposuction Idea , very curious to see how survivable it is especially since I've been getting some pretty good doctors recently.

I'm also liking the comic Idea, I may just blow the dust off my drafting table...
@Girlinhat   yes, your lack of kind words means very much  ;D

Exactly. Ethics in DF are very realistic - trivial and pointlessly selectively ex/inclusive.

Blinding your loyal citizens brutally just because the sighted variety runs away from goblins. I approve.

So sig'd. Even if I am a few pages too late.

"'ey Urist, are them Elves lookin' a little... weird?" Duran asked.
"That's rhetorical, innit?" Urist scoffer.
"Yeh, but... that one's vomiting fire." Duran stroked his beard.
Urist decided that this was indeed a little weird, and looked up from the wagon to look at the elves.  Of the several domestic slaves that had been brought along, one of them had begun screaming endlessly, his shrieks echoing off the mountain sides until it was strangled off by the thick fire pouring out of his mouth.  Urist just sort of watched as the next elf, then the next two, and the next five began spewing liquid fire out of their mouths and eyes, melted flesh and bone sloshing to the ground.
"Well, that..." Urist was interrupted as the first elf suddenly erupted into a blaze, exploding outwards in a burst of blood and fire.  This triggered the others, and in an instant the whole line of slaves had exploded one after another into an enormous bloody bonfire.
"What is this shit?!" Odom shouted from nearby, grasping at his head as he stared in shock.
"Run!" Urist shouted, "Run for the cave!"
"What about Odom?" Duran asked.
"Leave him!" Urist shouted over his shoulder, already sprinting towards the cave as well as a dwarf could sprint.  Duran was right behind him, ushered on by Odom's screams as the grass under his feet caught fire.  He made it to the cave, peering out to see charred elf limbs scattered around the burned wagon and the corpses of five other dwarves.  Two years worth of food and drink, and the raw materials to found a fort, up in a blaze of elf flame!
"This is your fault!" Urist shouted.
"My fault?!" Duran shouted, "It's you who left Odom out there to burn!"
"Don't you go accusing me of anythin' now..." Urist narrowed his eyes, gripping his copper battle axe.
"Yeh?  Well maybe I'm accusin' you anyways!" Duran continued shouting.
"That's it!" Urist declared, closing the few steps between them as his axe rose...
