    Yes. Use a 1 tile size garbage dump instead of stockpiles.

    Cheating. Craft your excess stone into near-worthless trinkets and baubles like a man.

    Pickriddles is full of fuck.

    We got raided by sasquatches. They smashed our trade depot, killed a wood cutter and our trade appraiser, then proceeded to rip the hands and feet off of the members of an Elven caravan that just arrived before savagely beating them to death. No idea why. They were pretty peaceful when we first started. I've gotten everybody inside and have locked the gates. Nothing gets in or out.

    Our senior gem cutter went insane because of the death of the appraiser and stomped some cats to death. Miasma is everywhere. Tantrum spiral is imminent.

    Meanwhile, our dogs are fighting with racoons that are running around in the woods. We've had bodies laying around the fort now for five years that nobody's bothered to clean up or salvage.

    Thank god we make coffins and caskets for our sustenance.

    Edited:

    Now, our apprentice bone carver and senior gem cutter are apparently working in tandem. The bone carver has lost his mind and is strangling dogs.

    Edited:

    Fort's fucked. Everybody started murdering each other and everything in sight. The only person that escaped immediate death was the gem cutter, but he froze out in the woods.

    I love DF.

    Aboveground silk: Add it in as gnome beards that you can harvest if you kill and butcher them.

    Subterranean ivory: Cave elephants (GOOD LORD)

    Pearls: uh... Titan material?

    I'm still adamant on trying to get a DF Succession game going.

    Unfortunately, I have the feeling that nobody would care/would back out in the middle of their turn... again.

    Silk: Thinking of something to add to hives since, you know, there's currently only bees (and let's face it, they're kinda eh as is.) Would give people reason to make hive farms again.

    Ivory: I was thinking of Cave Elephants, or maybe a massive toothy worm with a gaping maw of 4-6 tusks connected with flesh (sorta like a massive bloodworm.)


    this little bastard

    Pearls: Probably will be either giant cave clams (both standard and black pearl variety) or a sort of animal when slain and butchered produces dozens of pearls, probably an herbivore (could be tamed/domesticated) that consumes large amounts of cave moss at any one time (along with the ground in the process,) keeps the irritant soil in it's gullet and thus forms pearls that way.

    I would care but I am awful at this game and I will probably destroy the fortress on my turn without accomplishing anything

    I'd play but the problem I find is that there is often little to do in the later turns other than to just let it tick over.

    You have to get pretty lucky in locations of individual ambitions to get a good game going.

    I would do a succession game even though i'm not that good at dwarf fortress i don't think (i can at least work everything)

    Writing up the story would be fun, but you would have to choose an interesting start location so everyone has something to do and we would need someone to organise everything.

    Lots of drop the spear, come back, get the spear today. And drop the backpack, leave, come back, see if there are still objects contained inside. You can now place a dagger, say, out in the woods far from any site and find it later on. Your adventurers that get jumped out in the wilderness will also have findable remains/objects that you can go grab in your next game or embark upon with your dwarves.

    I wouldn't mind taking part in a succession, but the main issue is the location that everyone would want, and keeping everyone to time limits (the sort of issue I'd have)
    Fuck, had left the page on my PC 3 hours ago and forgot

    Devlog
    Wonder if they'll rob items that you leave, too. You could leave a load of armour out, come around later and see if the locals have robbed it.

    I hope this means that exploring an old fort in adventure mode won't have your fort's items scattered all over the landscape but they stay at their original locations.

    Imagine making a levers puzzle in your fortress for an adventurer that leads to a treasure chamber with a suit of adamantine armour and assorted weapons. :)

    Perhaps we should do a succession game after the new update hits? That way we wouldn't have to worry about breaking anything from the update?

    And maybe we could make a list, while we're at it?

    Ask random people for quests, hire followers and don't run around outside at night or the boogiement will get you (they attack out of nowhere in swarms). Ask peasants to let you sleep inside their houses or you will get thrown out if you try without permission.

    Right, I'm bored of this fortress, I used DF hack to see that the magma was 100z down, and there's little coal. Just gonna finish my towers, then it'll be time to drop 1/3 of the fortress population off my bridge down into my drymoat, and see what happens. Then I can see if I can find it in adventure mode. (this one's only 3 years in)

    Oh god, accidently unpaused when using DF-Reveal. Time to unleash the circus.

    You should use the new version of DFHack. Normal reveal doesn't reveal the circus, reveal    hell    reveals it but doesn't let you unpause.

    Oh shoot what one of my children went on a tantrum because he got annoyed by flies and started a war by pushing half the Human caravan off the bridge into my moat filled with spikes.

    I'm going to make that fucker face the siege alone this is unacceptable!

    Definitely one of my more interesting playthroughs. Most of the time I'll just get raided by goblins or some such other monstrosity and have a bunch of dwarves die, then all will be lost because of an ensuing tantrum spiral. Sasquatches... never had that happen before.

    New fortress is called Boatsmoistened. We live in a foul, alligator-infested freshwater swamp. We build cups. And chairs.
