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.

I just thought of something... but when you build a constructed floor on top of a metal vein and then deconstruct it, it reverts to layer stone, right?  Does this apply to slade as well, or is slade already the layer stone?  Also when you cast obsidian it creates an obsidian floor tile no matter what was originally under it, so could you cast obsidian over slade and then dig through it?

This intrigues me.  I cant test it at the moment due to not being able to channel water and magma into Hell. Yet.  When I have a moment to cobble together some channels and floodgates for a controlled test, I'll perform !!Science!! to see what happens.  Though if it actually does gets me down through slade, there's no reason I cant keep digging one layer at a time (pour, cast, dig, repeat).

At this rate you're going to find an even more underground hell so bad it makes hell look like.... Well everything in dwarf fortress is messed up but still.

Considering Hell is downright pleasant now, I'd expect to dig so deep that I'd pop out in the sky above Swordthunders.  The fort's front doorstep is almost covered with troll, goblin, yak, elf and human bones and there isn't a spot anywhere on the external map where you won't find the corpse of someone or something.  I've not only taken Hell, I seem to have swapped it with the surface.

And eventually you'll dig deep enough to go down into Boatmurdered.

That's right, if you Dig Too Deep, you get stuck in a two-dimensional plane of magmaphants.

You'd find yourself in an elven retreat.

From the Failcannon thread:

Low FPS: The one thing deadlier than the HFS.

The HFS is deadly?  Nobody told me... *whistles nonchalantly*

Something tells me this was not coincidence.

Good news:  The elf traders went beserk and the Swift Tombs hacked them to pieces.

Bad news:  It didn't happen fast enough, or they didn't have what was needed, and Mego II's gone melancholic.

At this rate, I'm on course for being the Andreus of Swordthunders.

More good news:  You didn't die the way the melancholic usually do.

Bad news: How you actually died was kinda hilarious


Incidentally, that Yak Cow is now known as Etewenami, or Scaleinsights
