Has Doren ever had a strange mood? If not, she's doomed, DOOMED I SAY! We're all DOOMED! DOOMED to a life with no leather! Woe! Woe!

Someone didn't eat their Cheery-o's this morning.

Oh and Khearn?  You're currently sitting in the mason's workshop screaming for stuff.  One of the items is 'rock bars', which I'm fairly certain don't exist....  Scratch that, looking at the items in the shop, it seems he's missing leather.  I'm trying to get a tanner's workshop and leatherworkers workshop up ASAP.  Certainly enough roaming animals about in the fortress...

edit:  Damn.  Khearn's melancholic.  21 dwarves now, not including Khearn.

Of course I didn't eat my Cheery-o's this morning. I wanted to eat them out of a magnificent stone cereal bowl that menaces with leather spikes, but we didn't have any leather. What's the point if there's no leather? I'll never eat Cheery-o's again. Or anything else for that matter. It just wouldn't be the same. Woe!

Have them killed. Nothing solves a problem quite as effectively as simply having it killed.

'Rock bars' are generally metal bars. Blocks are always specified as an artifact ingredient.

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.

rock bars are stone blocks, metal bars are "Shining metal bars". I have tested this, producing blocks when they want rock bars causes them to rush over and grab them. take my word for it here.

Yeah, it was going to be a kind of blocky stone cereal bowl. With a picture of Doren in amethyst. And a picture of a caravan being slaughtered by goblins just outside the front gates. A caravan that was no doubt carrying bins full of leather! Leather that could have been used for the spikes on the bowl! LEATHER!!

‼LEATHER‼




BTW, don't take me too seriously, ThatAussieGuy. I'm just role playing and giving you a hard time. ;)

I used to have an avatar, but I was told to remove it after it kept making people go insane.

Probably killed in some gratuitous, voilent way.

She's ecstatic at the moment.  And I don't mind Khearn.  You were melancholic after all.

Probably wandered outside during a goblin siege.

Let's be honest here.

Oh, there's now four Villas.  Three that are almost fully-furnished (Just waiting on dwarves to go get some tables out of the dining hall up in the fortress) and one that's under construction.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Those three finished ones belong to Loud Whispers II, Captain Mayhem and the third one down the bottom was given to Eric Blank because that dwarf is an INSANELY good engraver.  He's earned it.

If only there was anyone outside.

Hell is a lonely place right now

What? All of his engravings are blanks! Mine were at least Ok!

No respect. I don't get no respect.

Nor any LEATHER!!

No and quite frankly, I really doubt any god, spiritual or fell being would go near Doren lest she took her spear or adamantine pick to them.

Bah! They'll just fool her by saying "Hey! How would you like to make a legendary weapon to use? It would be cool! Just let us help, and go get some leather..."
