Oh, it's going to happen, it just may take a while. I think that training them for war and assigning them to my archer squadron could prove to be a deadly combination.

I haven't done much with them just yet, but they've already proven to be a great team of first responders. If a goblin or kobold show up anywhere near my entrance, the grizzlies are usually red in tooth and claw before any dwarves so much as get armor on.

Example: recent kobold incursion, marksdwarf chases and charges kobold to no avail for a while, Grizzly joins in because hey it looks like fun, Grizzly bites through lower body and bruises the lower spine, latches on, kobold thief gets pissed but can't do anything because the Grizzly is too busy shaking the Kobold and spraying guts muscles and arteries every which way. Subsequently named: Slosumu, which is not known to mean anything.

A goblin master thief came to visit and now my other bear is named Studamotsmor, or Stud for short, I guess.

This one didn't do the entire fight on his own as the master thief took a bolt to the heart and the lower body and the right upper arm and the kidney first. But once the grizzly entered, right arm scratched, left hand bit, right leg bit (lots of shaking and vomiting), left arm bit (more shaking, vomiting), head bit (more shaking and vomiting), head bit again (repeat), then finally lower body and more shaking. All the while, he was being repeatedly shot at and somehow surviving improbably long through unimaginable bear and arrow-related pain.

Tarn Adams is an American hero.
Quote:
Hopefully people have been able to glean some enjoyment from this version! It seems you shouldn't try to talk to your deity (crash) or block an attack (crash), and there are other crashes associated to having a fort that are under investigation. Having a larger world causes the calendar to lag a great deal (which also affects fort FPS) -- I have several angles on that, and until then trying a smaller world with a shorter history can make it go faster. There are other issues, like flying animals falling out of the sky, mystery babies appearing all over the place, no dwarf-sized equipment in places where it should be, cordial night creatures... I'll try to nab as many of these as possible as we go.


The Bay12 Team also did this in response to a request for Sanic fanfiction.

A weregecko showed up and ripped an alpaca to shreds and then got confused and left. I've never seen a werebeast last more than a few seconds on the map anyway.

New development in the caverns:

Quote:
The Forgotten Beast Mut has come! A huge blob composed of vomit. It has wings and it has a bloated body. Beware its deadly spittle.

So, if it ever breaks through, I will be fighting sick that attacks using its own sick. Also it can fly. Oh god, it can fly.

edit: attacked my a manotaur. Manotaur gets shot at twice, dodges once, second time gets hit in the leg and falls over, nearby militia captain pulls out steel shield and bashes its brains in. Report on manotaur lasts all of six entries.

Mut is dead. I'm not sure how. I didn't attack it. It didn't really have a way into my fortress either. But it got in, because wings, and then near as I can figure it had its wings nicked and was shot once and plummeted to its death. I only know this because I saw a dwarf hauling its body around.

But hark, new beast!
Quote:
The Forgotten Beast Damid Nelzurinrusos has come! A gigantic buffalo with external ribs. It has a pair of knobby antennae and it undulates rhythmically. Beware its fire!


(also I killed a cyclops in what was ultimately an uneventful fracas. A dwarf got his elbow fucked up but he's fine now)

I was disappointed too! It seemed like it could put up a somewhat fair fight, but it only spat twice and hit one dwarf before going down. I think it flew up through a staircase I had going into the abyss. I forgot to lock the hatch.

I also have endured my first siege. It lasted a few seconds before I had killed about eleven goblins. There was one fatality (speardwarf, stabbed in head with iron pike. We'll miss you, Bomrek Keskalilun). My army was... sizable and well trained. Previously one of my axedwarfs ran afoul a thief and bashed its stomach in before chopping off all its extremities. Dwarves.

Longest death: 3 pages. (Goblin immediately has both arms broken, is pounced on, bit, punched, and wrestled for a few pages as spearmen poke it. Macemen then break both feet, the upper arms, shoulders, hands, before axedwarves start in with the hacking and punch it in the face and remaining foot until it dies)
Shortest death: 3/4 page (mace to the head)
Most Kills: Axewoman with five, bestowing her the title The Royal Courage of Gorges
