No, more along the lines of lying on the ground with five skelks kicking several shades of crap out of him.
I was keeping track of what was happening in a list, so that after the muskskoxen fight was over, I could post a report on the bravery of my troops. Then things started to get out of hand, so I'm just going to give you my notes straight.
Kaamanen is the first to fall, taking a shattering kick to the foot that temporarily stuns her, allowing the muskskox to tear off her right arm and kick her in the head twice. Alas poor Kaamanen, we hardly knew ye. Ye shall be remembered.
Gamemaster gets in a few good attacks, but is kicked in the stomach a few times until she vomits.
Deathsword and Not Aussie are whacking away at the muskskoxen while they're busy attacking other militiadorfs.
The muskskoxen have been overcome, and Remalle's ghost has been laid to rest, but a group of skelk are approaching from the south.
The skelks appear oblivious to the dorfs for a while, until one of them makes a break for a hauler. The militia is sent in to kill the beast. A dog is first on the scene, and gets its skull caved in.
One of the skelks bites Phantom in the hand and shakes it viciously, tearing it to shreds. Rurik enters a martial trance.
Ogrin takes a beating, until he falls over and gets kicked in the head. Exitus Ogrin.
Rurik leaves the martial trance, right in the middle of three or four skelks. Do svidaniya.
Urist McJoeBloggs takes a heavy beating, gets his spine almost snapped, and then bleeds out.
arcangelsd apparently forgot to pick up crossbow bolts, so naturally walks right up to the skelks - and gets his arm torn off. He rolls around on the ground while the skelks are using him for wrestling practice. arcangelsd soon joins the choir of angels.
Gizogin gets used for bowling practice, until the skelks get a strike.
opti plays matador with a skelk until she falls over and gets her brain splattered all over a skelk's hoof.
A nameless nobody wanders blithely into a second group of skelk that has appeared elsewhere, and becomes a smear on the landscape.
Phantom dies like many others, getting bowled over and kicked in the head.
By this point, the second militia squad has been wiped out.
I order the survivors to break off and run. The day has been lost. Fully
a third of half the militia now lies dead in the snow.
Urist Imiknorris gets upset at all the death and throws a tantrum.
Andreus starts beating on Ledi for no apparent reason. EmeraldWind throws a tantrum but calms down after screaming for a few seconds.
Deathsword is still lying unconscious in the snow.
Meanwhile, a Skeletal Blind Cave Ogre has ambled into what will be the perimeter of the second cavern outpost. Oh goody. What's left of the militia is dispatched to deal with it.
The Skeletal Blind Cave Ogre is trying to attack Rentorian, but fails because Rentorian keeps moving and the Skeletal Blind Cave Ogre is, well..... blind.
Meanwhile, Urist is still tantruming.
The ogre gets a good grip on Rentorian's toe and tosses him into a wall hard enough to make his extremities come off.
I go down to take a look at the beast, and it somehow sniffs me out and chases me. It takes great pleasure in squeezing my fingers, toes and teeth. Finally, it BITES THE TOP OF MY SKULL OFF. BLOOD EVERYWHERE.
Urist has calmed down. Insolent wretch. My death should have made her melancholy at the very least.
Andreus and Urist are grappling on a chair in the dining hall. An evening's entertainment in Hellcannon.
Gamemaster is down in the caverns, fighting the ogre. The ogre rips off her leg.
Andreus is now officially throwing a tantrum. No, really? You've only been using Urist as a punching bag for two days now.
The ogre chases Gamemaster around the cavern, as she rolls and hops to avoid its strikes. Everyone who goes down to build the walls panics and runs.
reteip9 makes it to the cavern and fights the ogre, but gets his wrist broken for his efforts. The ogre has apparently earned the name "Twinkletruss" at this point.
Another Skeletal Blind Cave Ogre shows up. Fun times.
EmeraldWind thought it would be a good idea to saunter up into the snow and attack a small herd of skelks. Alone. With her baby, Remalle. DOUBLE KILL
Andreus has calmed down. Maybe now he'll stop playing "punchbuggy clay loam wall".
Urist, meanwhile, is still having a punch-up with the fortress at large. The fortress at large is not amused and caves his skull in. Also one of the ogres bites a nameless pump operator's skull open.
Lord Reudh bites and punches one of the ogres, but it doesn't do much of anything.
Dr. Mengelbel joins the fray. Lord Reudh and Creiydrek are throwing tantrums. Some pets die. These are apparently all unrelated.
LordSlowpoke and Andreus are throwing tantrums. Andreus says he's calmed back down a few seconds later. I doubt it.
Gamemaster and one of the ogres are running in circles, Benny Hill-style. Gamemaster is actually damaging some tendons, so this one particular fight may be ever so slowly drawing to a close. Yes, this would be the same Gamemaster that HAD HER LEG RIPPED OFF. I promote her from The Strategist to The Unstoppable Force.
Conchobar calmed down. I didn't even know she was tantruming. It appears as though everyone is. Also, a nameless leatherworker is no longer enraged. When did he rage? I think the announcements screen is lying to me. It said there would be +beef tallow roasts+.
reteip9 was enjoying a nice lie down in the caverns, resting. The lazy git caught an ogre fist to the head. Said ogre is now chasing two nameless dorfs around the cavern.
Creiydrek and Lord Reudh calm down. I'm pretty sure they'll find another reason to go into rage mode pretty soon though. Probably the fact that everyone is dying horrible, horrible deaths.
The ogre catches up to the nameless stoneworker and does what it does best - bite through the skull. Yay.
Eric Blank is tantruming. One of the ogres disappears. No report of its death, no body, just..... gone. I suspect reality isn't quite as fixed as it should be.
Now that she can no longer dodge, Gamemaster has apparently been immobilised. Oh, and the surviving ogre appears to have found the staircase.
Zeratul is tantruming, a nameless stoneworker has ambled into a drift of skelk topside, Mego is tantruming and Eric is attacking the mayor. Conchobar throws a tantrum and calms down immediately.
Andreus runs off into the snow and gets scared off by a skelk. He's pretty much done for. Eric Blank calms down. Riiight.
Gamemaster and Conchobar are throwing tantrums. Gamemaster presumably because she can no longer amuse herself baiting Skeletal Blind Cave Ogres. Conchobar just for the hell of it.
Darvi volunteers to be the new militia commander. Wait, when did Not Aussie die? During the skelk fight, apparently. Sneaky little git.
The ogre, Apessiege, has descended the stairway - phew - to the magma pipe level. One of the skelk has found Deathsword lying in the snow.
Apessiege is chasing a nameless herbalist around. Zeratul calms down. Deathsword's internal organs have pretty much shut down. Looks like the ordeal might be winding down.
MomuzC goes berserk. Never mind I said anything. He's chasing a bunch of dorfs into the stone stockpile.
Deathsword's torture continues. Her heart is broken. (No really, that's literally what it says.)
Darvi is being an idiot and goes to pick up equipment outside. He's startled by a skelk, and stops moving entirely.
Mego calms down. MomuzC abuses and murders a tame blue peachick, somebody's pet. Another skelk saunters over to participate in the slow murder of Deathsword.
The Skeletal Blind Cave Ogre, Apessiege, has by this time apparently bullrushed the nameless herbalist it was chasing..... into the magma pipe. So long, sucker!
Gamemaster calms down. I disband what's left of the militia.
MomuzC and Lord Reudh fight. Lord Reudh eventually punches MomuzC in the head. Brain bits everywhere. Andreus is melancholy.
There are four skelks pummelling Deathsword now. We have come full circle.
Another skelk finishes off another nameless herbalist. I swear we have (or rather, had) more nameless herbalists than you can (could) shake a +bismuth bronze spear+ at.
Lord Reudh is upset at killing a fellow dwarf and tantrums. Mego calms down, then tantrums, then calms down again. Lord Reudh calms down. Several others are still tantruming.
A child is tantruming. Is this news?
Andreus XIV has his arm torn off by a skelk, like many before him, and bleeds to death. The skelk in question goes to beat up on Deathsword. Lord Reudh goes stark raving mad.
Deathsword bleeds out. She was apparently wielding a battle axe, a buckler and a war hammer. Very badass, but that means that we now have a battle axe, a buckler and a war hammer we can no longer use.
The Skeletal Blind Cave Ogre, Apessiege, is apparently STILL ALIVE (or rather, UNDEAD). IN THE MAGMA SEA. Also, in support of my "universe is still broken" theory, it keeps getting caught in clouds of Gamemaster's boiling blood. Quite aside from the fact that this generates smoke, inside 7/7 magma, Gamemaster is still way up in the second cavern layer, lying on the ground and being pissed off. So how does her blood keep getting down into the magma? My guess is wormholes. If it was just a coating that Apessiege had picked up, it'd have boiled off by now. Therefore wormholes.
Mego throws a tantrum and immediately calms down. It's rapidly becoming a Hellcannon tradition.
The topside wall has been closed up. Finally.
And thus end the first three weeks of Hematite.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to stave off PTSDwarf by playing some Mass Effect instead.
