    Dabbling surgeons are the best thing, provided you don't mind a dwarf losing all his limbs because of a damaged finger.

    That reminds me of those surgeon simulators.

    One of my dwarfs just decided that a rubber wood short sword would be the most suitable weapon to fight goblins with.

    Edited:

    he then proceeded to whack goblins on their iron helmets doing no damage at all while my axedwarfs were chopping the goblins up

    Marksdwarves. You can also just send melee dwarves after it and hope that eventually it flies low enough for an axe to chop it up.

    He says it's flying around in the inside. So basically, there's a falcon flying around slamming into windows and whatnot, making everyone uncomfortable. I'm sure if you just drafted someone into the military they could go strangle it to death.

    Will toady ever fix the glitch where workers go to the closest place on all z-levels to to get wood/rocks/whatever as opposed to the closest item by number of steps away from them, its annoying to watch them walk all the way through my fortress go to to the log that was right above their workshop, instead of the log in a stockpile 10 steps away.

    I dont get how aquifers are so easy to get through. I tried the cave-in thing, and thanks to my own poor planning I got two of my miners killed in the process. The only two miners.

    Oh and it didn't work. the caved in bit turned into aquifer.

    Its not really that easy if the spot above the workshop is outside of my surface fortifications. Stupid dorfs walking past 20 logs to get a log he sensed was a few feet above him.

    No he means that if his workshop is on the level below the surface, and there is a log directly above the workshop ("1 tile away") and a log 3 or so tiles to the left in a stockpile (3 tiles away), the dwarf will walk through the whole fortress and outside to get it.

    So I rigged up a false entrance to my Fortress that, when certain levers are pulled, floods a winding corridor that is immediately sealed at both ends by Drawbridges. I have it drain into the first cavern layer. I didn't think much of it until I got curious and had a look in the cavern itself, only to see that my constant testing had effectively flooded the entire area under my Fortress, all the mushrooms and critters having drowned already.

    I constructed an overly elaborate method of killing things I don't like while at the same time crippling if not outright destroying an eco system.

    I LOVE IT.

    Husks are the outer shell of a plant seed. In games and fantasy though, it tends to refer to something that's either been completely drained of fluids or had its sentience removed. Basically, it's what's left after something is irrevocably altered into something that's strictly speaking not alive anymore.
    Alright, so how do you get your character like that in adventure mode? That's another question I meant to ask. I had figured the definition of it, I just didn't really word myself too well.

    I just bought a male and female giant sloth from the elves. Time to start breeding (and hopefully eating) those big slow fuckers

    Edited:

    Oh damn, my fort is now being attacked by a SECOND dragon. This one's name is "One Pearlfurnace the Diamond Spark." Pretty cool title. And weird that its name is "One"

    Aw, she got revenge on the slayer of the previous dragon. 'Swift' Rockcradled the Mechanical Domination of Serpents. An uncharacteristically fitting name.

    Edited:



    Is it normal for the game to straight-up tell me that the human diplomat is a vampire?



    NEVER MIND, NONE OF THAT SHIT HAPPENED BECAUSE MY GAME CRASHED DURING ITS SEASONAL AUTOSAVE

    Started a fortress on a volcano, channel out the gap to get magma to my forges, lo and behold, my engraver sets himself on fire by running too slowly, sets fire to everyone and my 150 logs I had floating around on the ground, the whole mountaintop's on fire, and my 7 dwarves are probably all gonna die.
    I fucking love DF, and I love fucking up.

    It's just set fire to my wagon. My wagon is FULL of bituminous coal and wood.
    Victory!

    So despite being in an Evil biome the only adverse effect I've had is it rains repellant filth that causes bruises all over someone's body. No evil mists or undead fish skeletons yet. I feel cheated.

    So I'm making my first semi-above ground fort, mainly because I embarked on a flat area, just dug down and didn't have enough water or effort to make mud and just worked the shallow soil.

    I've got 3 walls and I plan on making decent above-ground fortifications, but what do I use as a front gate? A pit and a drawbridge, underground tunnel filled with traps, a locked door, what's a good way?

    all of them at once?


    I go for the underground path with a flood trap personally.

    I have the same effect, but called "heinous ooze" (it starts as blistering, then becomes bruises it seems). One of the cats refuses to stay inside, so it's basically a big blob of blisters at this point. I'm half expecting it to just explode when the game decides to put it out of its misery.

    Meanwhile, I've built a giant tunnel system searching for a way around an at least 4 z-level aquifer, I've got as far down as is possible from where my fort is. I guess I'm going to have to wait for a caravan and hope they have enough stuff for a pump.

    Okay guys, making a semi above-ground Fortress on a terrifying glacier. Should be FUN.

    For a hoot I'm also going to Dorfify people from the thread.

    Edited:

    Wait, no, it's a Terrifying tundra bordering on a glacier.

    Oh god, my entire fort was just slaughtered by a goblin ambush, and one vampire just went crazy.

    Also, keeping a vampire walled up would be a good way to have a self perpetuating fort, I reckon.
