Cavy boar chases away a Forgotten Beast
« on: October 14, 2011, 01:31:48 pm »

Seems a fairly normal body composition for a flesh beast, it's the details that are odd. Giant hairy snail with leathery wings, fur and a poisonous bite. Sealed up fort so it went on a rampage killing the migrants and livestock outside, until it came upon the cavy boar. I have half a page of the cavy boar dodging followed by it counter attacking and denting a wing which seems to have made the FB run away since the Cavy boar is still alive. Trying to work out WHY, in amongst the laughter. The only injury was the dented wing, the Cavy boar was completely unharmed.

I'm tellin' ya, Capybaras are scary.
Who said anything about capybaras? This is a guinea pig.

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.

Eeyup.

Yes, this thread is about a guinea pig, chasing away an unimaginable beast that can likely shoot some kind of toxic chemical, fly, and/or breath fire. I love dwarf fortress.

Did the cavy have a switchblade? Are you sure it was a cavy and not a bad-tempered mini-lop? Sounds like Bun-bun to me.

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

You do not understand the ways of Toady One. He is not a business, he's just a guy trying to make a fun game. He's invited people to come along and experience the journey with him (and help him test it out as he goes along). At the end of the day, I don't think his main goal is to sell Dwarf Fortress, its just to create the best game possible.

of course it wasnt a capybara, if it had been all you would have seen would be the capybara's silhouette with glowing red eyes slowly dragging the fb towards a small pond, all the while the beast would be clawing and biting at the ground in a vain attempt not to get stolen away. the capybara would slip into the water and drag the colossal beast under, there would be a few bubbles then silence, and thats the last you would have ever seen of the fb...

Do not belittle the power of the cavy!

I used to have a pet guinea pig IRL that could scare the neighbors' grown cats. she ultimately succumbed to age + infection, appropriate for a DF thread

My random guess: smaller creatures receive bonus to dodging.

Or they just have a higher inherent agility. ;)

I once had a rampaging Giantess stumble into a spike trap and very nearly kill herself, but the coup de grace was administered by a Tame Small Kitten who casually strolled down my trap hallway, grabbed her by the head with her jaws and shook her around for 63 pages until she decapitated her.

That's gonna be a badass vermin killer when it grows up.
