    Back when glowing pits still existed i had a greater demon rip my entire fortress a new asshole. A miner uncovered the bottom level of the pit, i didn't even know there was adamantine on the map until he dug into the pit and got instantly gibbed from the demon. I failed to secure the stairs so i assembled the entire fortress into a rag tag band of recruits with no weapons or armor. They piled into the hallway adjacent to the top of the stairs. When the demon emerged he blew a fireball at the crowd and killed 15 of the 20 dudes sitting there. The rest were injured severely. I only had about 10 dwarves left who were all raging and tantruming at the same time. I had managed to equip a few of them with weapons, which just made killing each other easier. After some slaughter the last three dwarves were all running around mad about their friends dying when the demon approached. He bitchslapped one into a wall, turning him into a fine red mist. Another got swiped by a fireball and had a leg severely injured. The final dorf was raging so hard he tossed his sword straight through the demon's head, splattering his black goo all over the dining room. After killing the demon he went over to the injured dorf, strangled him to death and then starved himself, ending the fortress. It was a ride while it lasted.

    In something like my second ever adventure game ever (the first one I abandoned after I started swimming in a river and never got out), I had to go and kill a generic raider woman (human spear user, if I recall) for a quest. So I arrived, and started the attack. I was playing a Hammerdorf, but it was a pretty even battle- I became bruised over essentially the entirety of my body but she eventually collapsed. I beat her repeatedly until her skull pierced her brain, before realising I was being lashed in the face by her human lasher friend. So I started attacking him, and soon the bandit I had thought dead- with her skull inside her brain- picked up her spear and, being underneath me, stabbed it into my heel. And twisted it.

    Nerves were torn, and I then had the following messages for the rest of the fight.
    >You don't feel well.
    >You retch
    >You retch
    >You give in to pain
    >You retch
    >[Bandit's name] retches
    >You retch
    >You retch
    >You are deceased

    Me and my enemy had both collapsed to the floor and vomited all over eachother, before we eventually beat eachother to death.

    So what I'm saying is, adventure mode is awesome.

    I was playing a standard fort of about a hundred dwarves. It had survived a few goblin attacks and 1 siege, up until this one, which consisted of about 12 goblins and 8 trolls.
    First most of my militia is slaughtered, after driving the goblins away. The trolls roam free. My last remaining axedwarf fights a troll for 2 whole days, before a marksdwarf arrives and helps him kill it. Later, a dabbling sworddwarf and the marksdwarf kill about 5 trolls in the span of a day. Still lost the fort though.

    I once had a dorf in adventure mode who lost his left foot to a troll or ettin or something with butchers knife, anyway, he was on ground day to day erryday. Even though he was horribly slow I played him anyway and I wanted to visit mountainhomes so badly I went on a journey north meeting goblins on the way.
    Imagine a footless dorf laying on the ground covered by two steel shields biting the shit of goblins legs. And it worked, I lived through two packs of goblin ambushers, and a kobold abush, but it doesn't matter. What matters is the style I lived through this:
    The first goblin ambush left me untouched and I myself killed a goblin just by biting it. The rest was lying on the ground unable to move, so I flieed given the chance.
    Next abush started bad. For the goblins that is. I've bitten one foot off of a goblin and proceeded to smash the shit of it with my shields, the fight lasted long and I was all bruised etc at the end, but I lived.
    Later, a couple of days later in fact, another abush was upon me, this time kobolds.
    As usualy I proceeded to bite my way through them, and imagine my awe, when ordered to bite a kobold in the food my dorf spat out the goblin foot he was munching all this time. It was so awesome I actually bitten a few feet more off of those kobolds before they managed to pierce through my helmet.

    I'll share my current fort's story.

    I embarked on a volcano in the middle of one of my seas, pretty cool location, magma stack 20 zlevel vertical cliffs surrounding a cove on the beach, with crazy steep hills to the top of the volcano. Cave system is equally steep and cramped, just huge pits for the most part. Since it is an island theres been no ambushes/seiges, and only the occasional forgotten beast. Traders would arrive in the late autumn when the bay would freeze over. Its been a pretty peaceful fort, until recently that is. I decided that i was going to build an obsidian lighthouse/tomb off the beach of my fort. Complete with a burning pile of lignite objects at the top floor to be a beacon.

    Things went well, until the top of the tower that is. Due to a misdesination, i had to deconstruct a part of floor, using dorf logic when deconstructing the last piece, he decided to stand on the wrong side of the, now unsupported floor. The resulting cave in shot a hole in 16 z-levels of the tower, killing the original dwarf, and 3 others that were hauling furniture. I dont know which dwarf was held so dear by the community, but the ensuing tantrum spiral was incredible. Like nothing i'd ever seen before, a fortress of 187 dwarves redued to a meager 48 before my eyes. Berserk and tantruming dwarves, starting fights, injuring dwarves, breaking stone chairs and tables like they were kitten skulls, which werent spared either. Martial law was instated, all production that was not food, booze, or coffins for the newly slain ground to a halt. Soldiers were stationed in the housing blocks, and in the dining area, slaying dwarves that went beserk before they could do much damage.

    Things looked like they were on the upswing. Until the hospital event occurred. Between dwarves tantruming, and descending into melancholy/homicidal rages, the hospital area had become full to the brim, and the 3 decdicated medical dwarves had their hands full taking care of the wounded. Somewhere along the line, something happened, perhaps his sutures were placed too rougly by one of the newly appointed novice doctors, or having his friends slain by the milita, or pets and posessions crushed while he sat, neglected in the hospital. He snapped. "Urist McHospitalslayer has gone beserk" It was the last place i expected a beserk dwarf. The nearest militia squad was tens of seconds away in a situation that required instant intervention. He channeled Armok that moment, and proceeded to slay the entire hospital zone, like a bearded grim reaper. Moving from one bed to the next, attending doctors, making a break for the door caught the maniac's attention and were made short work of. By the time the milita had arrived he had killed 15 dwarves by himself, which only reinvigorated the spiral.

    Eventually the tantrums subsided, and with the arrival of new migrants, construction began anew on the lighthouse, the lignite was placed and an aqueduct was constructed to apply magma to ignite the eternal flame of the beacon. After the flame was lit, i realized i still had a 40 tile long aqueduct still full of magma, so i decided to do the easiest thing, and deconstruct a part of the wall so it would drain into the sea. While it did/currently is working, the combination of calculations of temperatures for the torch, and resulting fire, and fluid falling a large distance, and magma entering the seawater, creating an ever larger amount of obsidian and steam. The fortress is practically unplayable. I may at some point try to chug my way through it, but itll be slow going.

    Is there a stat or something that makes dwarfs stop being such pussies around unarmed goblins?

    Oh boy don't get me started on aquifers. I've never been able to figure out how to get past them, so eventually I just said 'fuck it' and edited the raw files so now there are NO MORE AQUIFERS. Best thing I've ever done for dwarf fort.

    Unrelated to aquifers, but I recently updated to .25 and added the flora and fauna and monster hunter mods. They're pretty sweet, except now I have Forgotten Beasts and Mosswine as playable races somehow. No idea how that happened. And for some reason there are 'creatures'. Just creatures. No description or anything. And legends always crashes when I try to look at this one particular phoenix. Weird shit.

    We are under ambush by goblins and a noble ordered a swordsdorf killed for violating production laws or some shit.

    The mayor is a presser, so for being a cunt I have set up a room where he will be "pressed" beneath several tons of dirt, right next to the tomb of the soldier he ordered to be put to death.

    He doesn't seem to ever want to sleep or ever enter his new room though. What can I do?

    You can very effectively force a dwarf to a certain area by designating it as a burrow and using [c] to assign him to it. He will instantly go there and cannot leave.

    Hey guys, I want to play a game where i start out with my 7 dorfs, and go from there, let them pop out new dorfs now and then. And let the place grow slowly. Only one problem... I get SHITLOADS of migrants :( How do i turn those faggots of? Tried setting pop cap to 7, still get migrants. Any ideas?

    tl;dr: How do i turn of migrants? Pop cap didn't get the job done.

    The first migrant waves are hardcoded, so you cannot avoid them. I suggest carving a small room where you can shove them in when they arrive and let them starve to death. Use the method in >>14547825

    Build a cage in the room you want him to go into and then assign him to it. Or you could make him his own military squad and command him to move into that room.

    My question. Anybody have experience with plumbing? I'm trying to put in wells in different spots like my mess hall and hospital but laying it all out is confusing the shit out of me.

    Order the lever to be pulled.
    Bolt the door shut once he's in the room.

    Put your egg laying area behind a door, make it pet passable and forbid it from your dwarves. I think it works.

    Just updated to .25, and I'm thinking of trying to build a fort that's half above ground and half below. However, I'm not sure if I should vary my standard starting dorf layout from its current layout, especially with all the new stuff in .25

    Standard layout I use is:
    Proficient Miner, Proficient Mechanic
    Proficient Miner, Proficient Butcher
    Proficient Mason, Proficient Building designer
    Proficient Carpenter, Novice in the 5 medical skills
    Proficient Armor user, Novice Wood Cutter, Novice Negotiator, Novice Judge of Intent, Novice Organizer, Novice Record Keeper
    Proficient Grower, Proficient Cook
    Proficient Grower, Proficient Brewer

    Any suggestions for changes? Current embark area is woodland or heavily forested, has clay and a deep soil layer covering flux stone and multiple shallow and deep metals. Also has a stream running through it.

    Hey, figured you guys might find this kinda neat, mostly because it made me smile.

    My Militia commander was my first dwarf to begin training. He was one of my original seven dwarves, and served as a sort of guardian to fight off the nasties at the beginning when I was getting started. Once migrants started arriving, this dude was pretty badass. He has a few scars - namely a broken ear - and over 50 important kills and a ton of beast kills before I had him retire as a Legendary Swordmaster to train new recruits. He got the title "The Sullen Teacher" during a scuffle with some goblins, so I thought this was quite appropriate. The dude was one of those 'friends with everyone, no real enemies' sort of guy, decked out in adamantine and living in a personal palace overlooking the arena I built.

    Anyways, I figure he must be some sort of comic-book style hero, seeing as how he's got so many kills and everybody in the fortress knows who he is. Just a little bit ago, this child who's listed as a friend of his gets possessed. He gathers a SHITTON of materials ( over 50 bones, 10 glass blocks, some leather, gems and stone ) and constructs this 42k Coffin. Inscribed on it is a scene of the Swordmaster killing a goblin, along with some pictures of a Penguin and a Wave, and the Artifact Axe that I gave as a trophy to the commander not long after this ambush.

    I can just picture this little kid going and writing down a story the Old Veteran dorf told him, along with adding some pictures of his favorite animals.

    You want a dorfy use for those migrants? Get ready for some copypasta.

    Alright /tg/, i've had this idea for a little while now, been thinking of ways to get it going. I figure i'd pitch it and see what y'all think of it, maybe suggest some tweaks or additional changes to the basic plan. For a new fortress in this new version, I'm going to make a utopia. A glorious, sprawling fortress lined with golden statues, paved roads, plumbing for every dwarven master bedroom, legendary personal dining rooms for every dwarf and underground and above ground gardens. Now of course, this would be complex and very elaborate, and managed by an overwhelming number of levers and mechanisms manned by dwarves to operate it with success. And my glorious master dwarven race simply cannot dirty their hands with meager levers. Therefor, there will be a subrace of dwarves ( migrants lol ) living in the sewers and dark, dirty under-underground who are cut off from the above-underground dwarves who live in luxury, trade with the humans and elves and are supplied with the finest of food and drink. These sub-dwarves will work for themselves, clothe themselves with whatever scraps they can find and eat probably nothing but plump helmets they manage to scavenge and insects. They will never see the great tiled and beautiful world they run on a daily basis, but they will still exist.

    Also if someone could explain this to me it be awesome.

    I was playing a relatively new fortress when suddenly it said one of my dwarfs was acting weird.

    I checked out his stats and it said something along the lines of "Has been possessed by a dark force" not to be mistaken with the "Holy shit i gotta build this" mood.

    Anyway I follow him around for a bit and all of a sudden he starts flashing and a missive trail of blood starts spearing on he tiles he was walking on.

    I inspected him again and he was missing an arm causing him to bleed all over the place.

    I get bored if I don't have a lot of dwarfs.

    Mainly because I have this OCD were if I build in a room I have to have people haul out every single piece of lose stone out of the room so there is nothing on the floor before I put workshops and what not in it.

    Usually takes a hauling team of 10-20 dwarfs to make this go quickly.

    Oh wow, this old thing. Er... the story did continue on for a bit, but that was a long time ago and I've forgotten most of the details. I'll just mention some of the highlights.

    After desecrating the Just Stone and abandoning my comrades there, I swam down the river for quite a while. It turns out that if you're a good swimmer, rivers are basically XP farms. The fish come in big schools, and the shape of the river means that they can only run in one direction. If you're a faster swimmer then they are, all you have to do is keep swimming toward them and they'll die in droves as they flee before you. The best part is that as they flee, they'll often run into another school, which will join them in their flight and provide you with a never-ending buffet of things to kill.

    So yeah, I killed every single creature in the river between the Blueness of Blame and the point at which the river flowed off the map. I reached Legendary in every weapon.

    After that I went monster hunting for a bit and killed some megabeasts. In one cave, I was walking down a staircase when I suddenly received a message about a giant being struck down. At the bottom of the stairs, I discovered the giant's corpse. Yes, I killed a giant by accident. With a copper hammer. That's why I went hunting megabeasts. I remember killing a hydra with only a handful of cockroaches. By the time I was done, half of the screen was covered with hydra vomit.

    I went back to the Sacrificial Seas, the elven civilization that had furnished so many useful recruits. I retired there for a while. I then used my status as a member of their civilization to start a series of loyalty cascades that eventually consumed them all.
    >> It gets better Anonymous 04/11/11(Mon)07:18 No.14555670
    Before I went on to the next civilization, I stopped off at another goblin dark fortress to pick up some more recruits. Kids, of course. I rescued a bunch of kids--thirteen, I think? The maximum I could support--then killed everybody else, including all the kids I didn't take with me. Lot of kids at that fortress. I also killed a demon, in a fair fight this time, which was nice.

    I took my thirteen kids out into the wilderness for training. I'd wander around until we ran into a pack of wolves. I'd stand back and let the kids do the fighting, not stepping in unless one of them was about to be torn to pieces. When the wolves were dead I'd pack up, and the kids that could still walk came with. I lost five kids out there--left them sobbing over broken legs in a pile of dead wolves--but I only saw one of them die. He was unusual in that he died without suffering a single wound. No, what killed him was dodging. Dodging away from a wolf, into a stagnant pool. I had the other kids stand around the pool and watch him as he thrashed about and called out to us. Not until he had drowned and sunk to the bottom did I give the sign to move on.

    The eight remaining I took with me to the next elven civilization. We killed a lot of elves. The kids died too, one by one, while the survivors grew ever more skilled. The more forest retreats we sacked, the more their numbers dwindled. By the time we slew the last elf, there were only two kids left.

    This was a problem. I'd hoped there would only be one.

    The solution was simple. I chose one of them at random and beat him to death with a demon's skull.

    Then I turned to the last one, who was now hammering ineffectually on me with her little fists. She was a fighter, that girl. I don't remember her name. Something starting with an A, I think? Something pretty. I wish I could remember her name.

    One by one, I grabbed her clothes and tore them away. Then I saved and quit.

    I went into the raws and added some new body parts to our respective races. Some organs, attached to the lower body. You can probably guess which ones. I added [LIMB] and [GRASP] to mine, and [JOINT] and [EMBEDDED] to hers. I started the game back up.

    I grabbed her right leg with my left leg. Her left leg with my right. Her lower body with my new organ.

    I locked her organ with my own. Then I broke it.

    Then I started gouging.

    After she had bled to death, I sat there for a while. Then I saved, quit, and deleted the save folder. I emptied my recycle bin.

    I don't really play Adventure Mode any more.

    dig down until you hit the first caves level and farm there, the cave floors there are already muddy and farmable without needing to be flooded.

    The easiest way to farm is to dig soil layers and set up farm plots there. Or if you want a suspiciously undorfy way, simply grow gathered plants above ground.
    The supplies don't have to be in a preexisting stockpile, the target stockpile just has to have free room (not covered in stones, for example) and the dorfs have to have the hauling jobs active (by default, they are).
    And another thing about stockpiles - remember that bins are your friend, and that you can control the number of bins/barrels in stockpiles.
    >> Anonymous 04/11/11(Mon)08:06 No.14555949
    Oh man I misunderstood your point about stockpiles. Yeah, that might be a problem, check that at least one stockpile has the relevant supply types active.

    if you can get access to flowing water such as a brook or river and making a floodgate to regulate the flow of water you can kill two birds with one stone.

    this is a basic plan of how i make my farms and runoff area to make water power / well areas

    =Xxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx==

    X - floodgate

    x - farm land

    = - wall

    to the left you have a river you have tapped and sealed off with floodgates, first you dig a trench from your farm area to your river but leave it 1 tile from breaching the river.

    then you set up two floodgates and two levers leading into your farm area and dig a drainage hole about 5 z levels down and at least 8x8 wide, now make sure you have an access tunnel and hole where you want to make your well(s).

    now make sure both floodgates are closed and you have locked doors to the farm area. Breach the river by channelling from the ground above it and and let the ditch fill with water, now throw the switch to fill your farm area to about 2 ~ 3 z levels of water then quickly close it and open the other floodgate.

    if done correctly you should have a nice muddied area which will soon dry out and be farmable land and a tunnel which you can open the roof of to make a well.

    does anyone know how long the longest surviving fortress has been running for?
    >> Anonymous 04/11/11(Mon)09:48 No.14556589
    so, the forts running well, got what i think of as a pretty badass military, killed a titan with ease (giant hedgehog, fuck yeah) fucking up anything that tries to get in their way. Suddenly a siege! Well, I think, military, let's go fuck them up! Half of them died including my two mega-badass squad leaders, now entombed in gold sarcophagai. THis then causes much tantruming, but still all is fairly well. Then two ambushes. 20 civilian dorfs killled. What remains of my military defeats the gobbos not caught in cage traps. Then i find delicious magma! I find a place to build my magma forges and furnaces. WHilst exploring the area i find a pit.
    cool yeah.
    Hellish screams rise up and 15 dwarfs are lost to beings which i thought impossible. We wall off the levels past 30 but the tantruming has started anew. Berserkers, depressives and stark raving mad people abound. Eventually migrants come, and we began to rebuild with madmen still babbling underneath the goblin chute.

    i have no clue about longest but my record is a fortress than ran for 150 years before computer died and i lost all data.

    this wasn't a case of me running it constantly either just my fortress had reached a level of self sufficiency that i could leave it running so whenever i was on the computer or around the house i left my fort running.

    i remember coming back to see that my dwarves had all but wiped out three civilisations worth of troops who decided my dwarves were just in the way of their rage

    If you seal the fortress with constructed walls and ceilings, and don't dig into hell, a fortress can last forever. As long as the beasts and titans can't get inside and you don't do something like use an atom smasher to destroy some artifacts, there's no reason for a tantrum to start. But it's really boring.

    Construct a Wooden Cage at a carpenter shop, then place it with b -> j. Then assign your animals to it with q -> a and they'll be stored there. You can train them as War / Hunting dogs to aid your Soldiers / Hunters at a Kennel ( b -> k ) or slaughter them at a butchers workshop for food and leather. You are also able to place them at key points on a Chain / Rope ( b -> v ) the same way, and they'll stay in place while detecting any thieves / ambushes that move into a square next to them. In the case of an ambush, they'll like die, but they also scare off thieves if you place them at the only entrance to your fort.

    Started a new fortress.
    Dig down deep, managing to make it all the way past the great magma sea without hitting anything.
    Start looking for a way below the semi-molten stone.
    Discover a cavern. "Hmmm, this is nice, plenty of animals and not a creature to be seen. I think I'll build my city in here."
    Only have one "unarmed" soldier dwarf.
    After building farms, workshops and beds in the cavern I get attacked by _something_, not sure what it was really.
    Fortress wiped out, the end.

    Only herbivores require food, which unfortunately Elephants are. Dogs aren't so they live until they die of old age or wounds.

    Sounds like you broke into Hell and encountered Demons. I'm surprised you lasted long enough to actually build anything in there.

    Silver War Hammers are a great choice for soldiers, probably the best weapon choice other than Adamantine Spears/Swords/Axes. Otherwise, swords are a good multi-purpose weapon, make it out of anything but wood for combat purposes. Armor is always a plus.

    Oh, and as for your first caravan Rock Crafts are usually decent enough for the first trade. Build a Craftdwarf Workshop ( b -> w -> r ) and use up your extra stone. The crafts are sent to Finished Goods stockpiles. I would HEAVILY suggest you make bins from your caprenters workshop if you have any extra wood after beds, they keep your stockpiles nice and organized. You don't really need barrels any more, since you can make Stone Pots at the Craftsdwarf Workshop that do the same thing only without wood. Your wood should usually now only go towards making Ash, Beds and Bins, maybe bolts if you don't have enough bones yet.

    That means that his highest skill is some form of woodcrafting. He's going to request ( and take ) random materials and construct something wonderful. If you don't have the materials he needs, he will die. Eventually. Usually they either start ranting, throwing their clothes and running around the fortress or mope about in their room until they starve to death. Rarely, they will go berserk and start breaking things and trying to injure your dwarves. If he finishes the artifact though, he'll become Legendary and you'll have a very expensive item of some sort.

    I started a new fortress in a heavily wooded 3x3 area of wilderness with a nice river. I decided the build an above ground village, Bugman's Brewery, and the fort has been running quite smoothly for over a decade now.

    My starting group consisted of a Zamnil "Samuel" Bugman, Head Brewer, the manager/brewer of the outpost and novice in mining and woodcutting; a female cook/doctor, who would eventually become his wife; plus 5 farmers that had additional farming-related skills. (I had to reembark once to get the genders right). Right from the beginning I made Samuel dig underground cellars for food and booze storage, and then made him cut down most of the map's trees. The rest started gathering plants and building wooden buildings.

    The dorfs began to grow all types of non-dorfen plants I could gather and trade for. An elven caravan brought the rare sunberries to Samuel's attention; they are now the most precious drink that Bugman's Brewery can offer to thirsty travellers from lands far away, and barrels of this fine liquid are reserved for the Original Seven (new inhabitants only get to taste this delicious drink on special occasions).

    By trading away high quality alcohol, Samuel Bugman made his Brewery famous throughout the mountains, and the outpost was quickly bolstered by waves of new immigrants. Fearing goblin ambushes, Samuel realized he needed an army to defend the Brewery. Thanks to the hard work of the five (now legendary) farmers, food was aplenty, and all of the immigrants could be assigned to military duties. The military's strenght has varied over the years, but it now consists of four marksdorf squads of five sharpshooters, three eight-dwarf squads of able wrestlers, two small teams of combat engineers and artillery operators, and a team of three medics, who recover the wounded, perform first aid and help the doctor in the hospital. From time to time, a "boot camp" squad under a legendary wrestler is formed, so that new recruits learn the basic minimums in hand-to-hand combat and swimming in specially constructed training areas. The only one wielding a metal weapon, Samuel Bugman himself, rarely takes part in combat, but he is still a respected and skilled master axe dorf and legendary in the art of wood cutting, and is as tough as steel and quick as lightning.

    The Brewery has become a large village, surrounded by a sturdy wooden rampart, with at least two squads of marksdorfs guarding it constantly. The gate to the Brewery is always open, should any weary, wandering hero require a pint of golden booze to quench his thirst. The gate is guarded by four bears, so that the military in the nearby barracks, armoury and shooting range can be quickly alerted. There is also a grand tavern attached to the main facility for brewing, a mansion for Samuel and his wife, some houses for civilian workers, a small hospital with a bath house near the town well, and a chapel next to the cemetary. The cemetary sadly requires constant enlarging, as hordes and hordes of goblins attack the Brewery, jealous of the skill the Head Brewer possesses, and are then repelled by the stubborn defenders. Needless to say, the wrestlers, who are armed with nothing more but their strenght and bravery suffer most of the casualties. The marksmen usually fare better, but can be picked off by skilled enemy archers if luck isn't on their side. It is quite easy to see who's a veteran of many battles and who is green; the eldest, battle-hardened, scar-covered longbeards have only their body hair and patches of goblin vomit covering their privacy - their clothes having rotten away long ago. Nevertheless, the brave warriors of Bugman's Brewery are taken care of, and the survivors of battles are always able to feast on delicious alcohol in the Grand Hall.

    Samuel and the doctor fell in love and got married some five years after the foundation of the Brewery; their marriage was the first occasion when the commoners were allowed to taste sunshine, the finest alcohol available. The doctor gave birth to a girl, and later, to a baby boy, which made Samuel glad as he now had a suitable heir. The boy was named Josef, and aye, he is a fine young lad, now six years old, skilled with his words, partying like there's no tomorrow, and already requires booze to get through the working day.

    There is one notable event of the Brewery's early history that must be recounted. This happened shortly before Josef's birth, during the month of Felsite in the spring. Samuel one day awoke to find his wife in a macabre mood, and having heard from his friends what could happen to perfectly good dorfs under such a condition, he to his horror realized the village did not the have the required remains of beasts available. The village had only a single pair of bears for breeding, and Samuel did not wish to see them butchered. He quickly arrived at the trade depot to consult the Elven merchants' opinion, and hoping to buy animals from them. Sadly, they had none with them, and Samuel's mood turned grim. Aware of the dire need to help his beloved wife, he did the only possible thing he could think of. Without saying a word, he started hacking the Elven merchants to pieces with his trusty axe. The merchants were no match for him, but his axe was jammed in one of them. Samuel proceeded to fight the Elves with his hands and teeth, ripping off various body parts, throwing them around the market square. As the military hurried to help their master, they saw Bugman strangling the last poor Elf with her eyes gouged out, and they quickly finished her moans of pain with well-placed wooden bolts.

    Samuel was standing in silence atop the corpses of the slain when his wife came to the depot, picked up a corpse and claimed a workshop. Seeing that she now had finally started her work, and that all was well, Samuel spit an Elf nose off his mouth and walked to the food stockpiles. He picked up a fisher berry wine barrel and drank from it for a long, long time.

    In the summer, the doctor revealed what she had been working on. It was a legendary pair of Elf leather mittens. They weren't expensive, but they were made with love. The Elves have now joined the goblins in the war against the Brewery; but with the help of the stalwart dorf military, commanded by Samuel Bugman wearing Elf leather mittens, the village stands strong.

    One day, Josef Bugman will inherit this all.

    my first fort just collapsed:
    > cozy little area on the downslope of a river valley
    > brought a bunch of animals with me because i didnt know what else to use the points on
    > fort gets up and running, constant surplus of food, kittens, puppies and guineafowl running everywhere
    > get a master engraver as an immigrant, he engraves charming rustic scenes of animals on all of the walls and floors
    > goes on like this making tons of cheese and food for two years until a vile force of darkness arrives
    > goblins kill all 60 of my herd animals and 15 of my 100 dwarves almost instantly
    > get everyone inside and settle in for a siege
    > run out of drinks because all my barrels are full of all the damned food i keep harvesting and i cant figure out how to empty them
    > people start dying of thirst, tantrums ensue and magnify
    > fortress is full of dwarf corpses and miasma and covered in blood

    I've been having weird glitches with my oceans lately. Specifically, they freeze and thaw about every thirty frames. Not only that, but it does it in an odd pattern across the ocean, meaning that if you have over a 2000 speed, you can outrun the freezing death forever.

    It was fun to explore in adventure mode, but instant death and a dead framerate kind of killed the fun of it.

    So a unicorn just massacred a dwarven trade caravan parked in my depot. Holy shit I was just about to send my militia out to fuck with the unicorns for training. I am happy I didn't do that.

    Anyway my question is am I going to catch flak for this from the dwarf civ that sent the caravan or are all these delicious items mine now for free?

    If it keeps happening things might go south, but not after only one massacre. You can take all that stuff for free now though.

    This will be the last record of what happened at this camp. THe men who fought so bravely and endured so much must be remembered. At first the fort was thriving. Then we dug too deep. The magma was abandoned along with many dwarves. Just after this slaughter siege came and our grief was great. Many went insane, but still our fort clung on. We began to rebuild, we thought we were safe. We were wrong. A second siege came, so much stronger than the first. Hordes of goblins and trolls. Our population was halved in minutes. Everyone, save I (reserved for medical duty) was drafted to try and fend off the horde. By this time we had only 20 of our people left. Still our army fell like flies, there were three of note. Datan the swordsdwarf was first to the fray. A militiaman he was used to battle. He drew his sword and began his work. MOunt and goblin and troll he slew. More piled onto him, 7 he killed without taking a hit. He stood in the barracks, panting, leaning on his sword. Suddenly he was struck. A goblin pierced his iron boots and smashed his foot. Still Datan fought. Into the corridor he charged, roaring hacking left and right. But he was slowed. His parries failed. over and over again they came at him and their numbers outdid his strength. He fell. Then came Urist the miner. When the siege came he took his bronze pick and charged. He did not even take time to don armor. Naked he killed a troll, smashing his pick through it's foot then bringing it through the skull. Alas, as he tried to remove it another troll ran into him toppling him. He was ripped apart. Finally i tell of the mayor who lies with me now. When the goblins breached the perimeter he was running to the armory but they reached him first, 7 goblins and 4 trolls attacked him but with fists and teeth he escaped them. We are now both resting in the hospital ( i took a few scratches myself). The door will not hold long, we will not survive but I hope I face death as bravely as those others did.

    Alright, question two. I have encountered a forgotten beast. It is a giant feathered slug with wings and a poisonous bite.

    I don't really know how to go about this as this is the first thing that has wanted to kill me that is bigger than a goblin. Any tips?

    Just lock it in the caverns until you've got a couple legendary soldiers.

    The menu's didn't used to be so clusterfucked, Toady just hasn't changed them since he started - he's just slowly added more and more to it. Since I've been with DF for a long time I've just grown with it, but I understand why people new to the game would have problems. As far as I know there's no menu replacement, but Toady has stated that he has plans to re-do a lot of things once he's got major features of the game done.

    He's pretty much said that he would do it now except anything more complex than the basic menu would probably break with updates and be more trouble that it's worth.

    What's this "tileset" you're speaking of?

    It's ANSI.

    I use the 800x600 font in ANSI. I think it looks much nicer than the default, along with a modified colorset. I'm colorblind, so I have trouble seeing the default Dark colors on the Black background.
