    Of course, once I learn how, of course.

    Before I cancel the save, I'll make a fuckton of coins and other trinkets to sell to various traders, so you'll be able to find pieces of my fortress that will set you on the right track to find it.

    Looking back, I should've captured the male Dragon that came to visit the fortress so I could tame it, then proceed to put it somewhere in the fortress.

    Final question: How should I effectively trap Demons in cage traps? Should I just line a hallway with cage traps and hope for the best as they run over them?

    They're like dwarves, they only get caught in cage traps if they fall asleep or are knocked unconscious on top of them. So, you'll need to drop rocks on the demons to catch them.

    I believe there is a video of this on that video site.

    I have an idea for a cheap, yet effective way to do this.

    Turn off Cave-Ins, make a room that would easily fall if Cave-Ins were turned on, then line the entire thing with cage traps.

    Lure the beasts into the room with a bunch of peasants turned into recruits (they run fast since I have speed set to 600) and will sacrifice themselves so that we may have Demons.

    I know it's not Dwarvenly, I'm just trying to set this thing up to be perfect, I intend on this being fun and enjoyable for people to try and hunt down.

    That definitely works as well, can I set a lever up to destroy a support?

    Doing it now.

    I just hope it doesn't collapse the Pyramid in the process.

    Also, while I'm doing that I'll start up another mega construct which will hopefully be easier then the Pyramid, yet just as effective: Four large, curved guard towers which overlook the intersection of my fortresses Highway (5 tiles wide, I'd call that a highway.)

    I just got a Tax Collector and Baron/Baroness, they are demanding rooms.

    I'm sick and tired of petty follies like room arrangements, I'll just ignore them until they eventually go batshit insane.

    Pansy! Support your entire pyramid with several z-layers supports. Hide all of your treasure in one big room. If someone tries to get to it, they hit a pressure pad and...


    SINK THE WHOLE FUCKING THING!! :black101:

    That... That... Sounds perfect.

    Death by Pyramid has to be new.

    However, what about the extensive trap/demon/flooding system?

    Will mean nothing when the entire pyramid sinks and is surrounded on all sides by straight cliff walls.

    That's the point. Pyramid sinks, no one gets the treasure again. Anything inside is eternally trapped.

       Until you go back and dig the pyramid out.

    That could be the punishment if they go down the wrong tunnel.

    Of course, the layer the player is actually on will probably be safe, meaning they'll be trapped in the pyramid forever! That works.

    I can just do one support, which I was planning on doing anyway.

    I think I have an idea for my next fort. I want to build a GIANT tower. It will gaze across a rocky wasteland, a monument to Demonkind! :hist101:

    Edited:

    Whatever works.

    Regardless, watching a pyramid suddenly sink to the near-top in a massive hole would be incredible. :aaa:

    Build a secret enclave under said collapse area, to be sealed away by the Pyramid on "accident".

    I'm unsure on how to do most attacks. I can grab people by certain parts of their bodies, but I can't break it, choke them, gouge their eyes, throwing doesn't seem to send them anywhere, etc.

    Also, bows don't work. I press f, move the thing over where I want to shoot, but have tried every way I can think of that would let me shoot to shoot, but it does not work.

    Wait, so how are you going to get the pyramid to safely sink? If you just put it on 1 supprt and collapse it, won't the whole pyramid collapse?

    Also if you abandon an adventurer in there, can you find his bones on Dwarf mode?

    Abandoning would mean they teleport back to life as a peasant, you'd have to wait for them to die from lack of food/water/attack by demon.

    Also, my pyramid is big enough so that, if it fell down, it would still trap the adventurer.
