Have I turned breaching the HFS from the most terrifying and challenging thing a dwarf can do into a simple and hilarious thing that anyone can do?

Well, I scrounged some time to explore Swordthunders. After the game had crashed, I had to make my way back to where I was. Unfortunately, Vehudur and Doren were nowhere to be found. A FB was there though, and I managed to kill it. Reg Lekzaneg lost a masterwork, somewhere, somehow. Found some long downward shaft, apparently made for a vertical axle.

My troops found me. The three of us started down the shaft. We will see what is down there...

Mist, clothes and small armor. Continuing down.
I made it to the bottom of that shaft. The floor was 2/7 full of water, but there were floor hatches to a lower level nearby. Continuing...
Same happened again.

I'd hazard a guess that your PC can't cope with the sudden amount of flowing magma being generated when you reached the magma sea.  I drained it a bit around each of the pumps, so it'd all be slowly refilling. Where was the room with 2/7-deep water?

Actually, the "Same happened again" meant another small room 2/7 full of water, and floor hatches. Sorry for any misunderstanding.

The room was at the bottom of a some sort of shaft, 3-4 up/down stairs in a nearly-square formation. Also included short path north, then east to a vertical axle. No idea where the axle was going.

I'd also enjoy trying to reclaim this horrid little fortress, but I wouldn't have time to manage the thread... hmm... What can be done with this...

I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

Perhaps Aussie should manage the thread?

I realized how bad of an idea that would be just after I typed it.

I realized how great of an idea that would be just after I typed it.

I TOTALLY AGREE.

Oh no-no-no.  I built the damn place, so it wouldn't be fair - I know where everything is and what all the levers do.  I'm not going to deprive any of you the surprise of finding out.  There aren't any that would utterly ruin a reclaim (anymore.  I dealt with them before saving), but they would provide a few moments of excitement.

You could still manage the thread.

The fortress is half-flooded, Hell is full of magma and abuse, and I unwittingly created a waterfall that is systematically killing the animals that lived in the fortress one-by-one.


I'd say my work, and fortress , are done here.

This is the worldgen with Swordthunders having been abandoned so it would stay half-flooded on the upper levels and offer a challenge

Though I don't want to start it, I heartily endorse anyone insane enough to launch a reclaim.

Is that how we're doing it? Next person to post in here starts the Swordthunders Reclaim thread?

See you guys later.

Alright, I'll start and keep an eye on the reclaim thread, but I'm not taking a turn.  Whoever wants to lead the initial expedition, let me know before I start it and I'll PM them when the thread's made.


Here's the reclaim save again.
