Who says we can't have another Boatmurdered?
« on: August 16, 2011, 05:26:23 am »

It's only late spring of the first year and already the skelephants have got my mechanic and a donkey. EDIT: And the cat.

Come back when you have repeatedly flooded the world with magma, have an on fire dwarf dual wielding for mayor, and engravings of elephants on fire.

I doubt we're going to get to that stage, the expedition leader just got stomped into the dirt.  EDIT: And there goes his replacement.

I say we can't have another Boatmurdered.
Take some pictures, make ridiculous traps, and post here. We'll see what happens.

Check out Battlefailed, Failcannon, and Ardentdikes in the Community forum (all handily linked from the Hall of Legends sticky).  They're quite comparable.

It is really, really easy to flood this place with magma fwiw.

Doors stop fire, right?

Well, the skelephants got everyone but a cat by mid-summer, and on the reclaim I discovered that skelephants are actually very easy to kill with seven untrained unarmed dwarves. Hopefully Toady will be able to get rid of the HP system soon.

Everyone remembers the elephants but that alone is not what made Boatmurdered the glorious NICEBOAT it was. The butterfly corpse blocking the door, the repeated magma washing of the surface, the legendary berserker on fire, StarkRavingMad's bad language, the cheese and elephant engravings... it all adds up.

Congrats, Psieye. This is the first time I've seen a derailed thread get put back on the rails.

We cannot. These things are spontaneous. Anyone trying to deliberately reentact it will fail.

I wasn't trying to reenact it - it was just that I thought that an element long thought lost (vicious, dangerous elephants) actually still existed in skelephant form. Unfortunately it turned out on a reclaim that a couple of untrained wrestlers could take down a skelephant.

i think theres somethig about the chaos, the players and the succesion basis that makes it impossible to create a boatmurdered by accident
