I have some work to hand in for tomorrow at 12. I've been doing it for the past week or so. After this, I will attempt Dwarf Fortress. It might not even end in failure like the last time :p

I don't think I understand. There's no way to win at Dwarf Fortress. It's supposed to end in failure, it's just the kind of failure that seems to vary from instance to instance.

JMD and Ato regard it as a form of cheating, but graphics packs can help you figure out what's going on and ease into it beyond the "this squiggle is mortal enemies of this other squiggle" aspect of it.

One of my siege operators decided to use what little flux stone I had to create a figurine of a cheesemaker, whose presence has never been vital to my fortress, admiring millstones, which I have never built.

Fucking dwarves, man.

I now have two legendary masons to go with my two legendary engravers.

Monanggikut Tharnas An, Drilleddabble the Slayer of Meditating, a phyllite hatch cover

This is a phyllite hatch cover. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It is encircled with bands of llama wool. This object is adorned with hanging rings of phyllite and menaces with spikes of yak bone and mahogany. On the item is an image of troglodytes in wolverine leather.



My fortress is the proud owner of the most ornate manhole cover in the known universe. I am also especially glad of the fact that something used to cover a hole leading underground has troglodytes on it.

Leather troglodytes... on a manhole... covered in expensive hardwood spikes. Love this game.

A giant sauropod with noxious fumes and an external ribcage broke into my fortress about a minute after I opened up the caverns. Before I could send my military squads down there, an especially curious weaver got his shit pushed in and then rotted off. The sauropod itself was then clubbed to death with little other damage except one of my dwarves had his left hand partially rot, which was cured fast enough. But now other things are rotting that weren't there at the time. Among them: one of my precious leopard cubs, running around, being adorable as its paws rot off and shoot miasma everywhere.

Contaminants, man. They spread. Anything that touches that creatures blood or other bodily fluids will probably die. Set up a mister so that it gets cleaned off.

That makes a goddamned lot of sense considering the leopards were wandering in there after the fact. Well fuck. That might take some time to engineer. I see a tutorial online to start a power mister, but I don't know if I'll have time to install it or work out the kinks in the near future, so I think I'll just not play for a week until the quarter is over. The contaminated room is way down in a z level in the 50s and getting water and parts down there is going to be a pain in the ass.

Am I going to have to kill and then carefully dispose of those contaminated and if so then how the fuck? Or should I just put them in the misty room and hope.

Just have a mister that washes the contaminants off the dwarves at a popular, public area like the entrance to the dining hall. Really, really dangerous contaminants that kill a dwarf almost immediately won't be fixed by that, but there's isn't really any way to deal with that at all.

What I'm thinking of doing is having one mister set up in the entrance where my old meeting room was and one mister set up at the entrance to the caverns. Decontamination chambers, if you will. But they'll have to be dwarf operated, which is kind of lame. I don't have any easy means of setting up a watermill near either location.

"By mister, were you referring to the mister I need to build, or did 'that' refer to the not-built mister, and you were addressing me as mister?"
'The both.'

So, here's the deal, goons. Since this was marginally popular, I'm going to be starting a new truck for a new fortress and trying to document as much of the preposterous bullshit that is happening as I can. This will be no kind of news to most people who already play Dwarf Fortress, but to the rest of us who are just now familiarizing ourselves, it'll be a lark.

Right now, there are two worlds that I've gotten decent embark sites on.

1. "Palacelands"
Stupid name. Hilariously so. I'm lodged between the haunted region of the map four squares to the south and the civilizations several more squares to the east. This could result in Fun. Near as I can tell, I have no visible iron either. And I have a waterfall! There is a great deal of potential here for horrifying things to happen, and thus it is an early favorite.

2. "Plankboard"
Plankboard's position isn't interesting. It's not too close to any other civs and certainly not to any kind of interesting terrain, though it does have iron. Where it excels is that Plankboard is in a universe called the Windy Plane, on the Continent of Bleaching, in a subregion called the Spike of Treaties, and most importantly, the river adjacent is Breakfastboys the Good Shore. HOLY SHIT.

I'm siding with Palacelands because there's more potential for peril there, and peril is inherently interesting, but being next to a river known as Breakfastboys the Good Shore is hard to pass up on.

¿Por qué no los dos?

I've started a fort now, though it is little more than a hole-in-the-ground at the top of a hill.

I like building forts at the bottom of the hill a little better. Makes it feel dwarfy.

I'll start Palacelands soon-ish. I started another fort just to dick around. Got to a population of 126 before I was attacked by anything at all. The thing that attacked me was a "weremouse." "Great. This will be comical," I thought. The weremouse spawned right next to a bunch of fishermen and tore through four of them plus a dog before it was attacked by the rest of my squad. One of them was one of my better hunters, who just happened to be fishing. It was probably for the best that hunter had her skull torn open because she was the only one that got bit and I don't need no weremice running around clawtearing up my fortress.
