Lady Consort invader!
« on: July 14, 2017, 06:58:05 pm »

Never saw this before. A Lady Consort dwarf is invading with some goblins. Probably going to capture her in some cage traps the way she's going.

I'm guessing, but goblins kidnap kids and bring them into their society. Like those occasional Human Recruits that come with the goblin raids, but she also has a noble title. Check the civilization screen and she is probably listed as consort to the goblin king. As to why she is along for the raid, maybe she is a bad-ass warrior as well.

Hmmmm but the king is some kind of demon, is that possible?

Also I didn't think interspecies marriage was possible!

It's also possible she's simply a naturalized goblin citizen--they captured her home site and she retained her title.

Well she's in a cage now.

Science time.

The scouts have been fighting a giant capuchin for the past month now. They still haven't killed it.

The Sentries are still fighting the capuchin. For two monthes they have done nothing but punch this monkey.

Is it not the consort of a Lady (noble title) and therefore a man?

I highly doubt that, considering:

That's not how it works - in Dwarf Fortress, the spouse of a Lord is a Lady Consort.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

Definitely cage her and find her former civ. Then let her go back with that civ's caravan.

Be sure to advise them that this person may not be entirely stable ... given her imprisonment by goblins.

It is advisable to complete your trading and remove all dwarves from the trade depot before unlocking the cage ... with Dwarven patented remote levers!

Hm, if you market a sentient -trained-  before trading, maybe you even could (otherwise, vanilla, they're going to release her from cage and trade just the cage). I guess you'd get an announcement that they've been kidnapped?
