Ah, it's been a while.

How is Lorric coping with the loss of his foot?

Ah dernit.

Coffin for me, yo!

Also, if Hobbie has a child, redorf me into him/her as Hobbieson. Or another dorf. Whatever's free. :P
In the arena of logic, I fight unarmed.

So apparently I'm a real boss.  That makes me a Legendary what else in addition to mining?

You could imagine this being a vicious cycle.

Gets it out of his system by killing someone - takes a beating - angry again, gets it out of his system by killing someone - takes a beating - angry again, gets it out of his system by killing someone...

Vicious cycles are the core mechanism of dwarven society.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.

Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.

Be weary of necromancers.  :shaking:

I just had a well-establish fort go down because my mechanics didn't think it was important to rig the panic lever to the main gates. All 212 undead elves, dwarves, and humans subsequently had a party before I could find their master.

As well as any dwarf could be expected to: as in, if they don't die or snap, they just shrug it off. You'll be on a crutch for the rest of your life (Toady, why haven't you implemented prosthetics yet?), but you can continue to work and live as normal. You will be a bit slower than usual, and have less-than-stable footing in a scuffle, but are otherwise unchanged.

Yup. Already have you interred in the Hall of History, and I think you have children, so the line will continue.

So apparently I'm a real boss.  That makes me a Legendary what else in addition to mining?
I believe that a moody dwarf's highest skill is counted when making an artifact, and your highest skill was Mining. Which means that, unfortunately, you gained no new skills from your artifact.

More beatings.

This is actually how a lot of tantrum spirals start. Which is why Stoker McAngry had to be melted down. He wasn't able to pour some cheerup on his paincakes, and his apparently hulk-like strength would invariably kill somebody important/popular and piss off the rest of the fort. I don't enjoy deliberately killing or dooming my own dwarves (unless they're an unrepentant cocksucker noble), but this was the most expedient way to handle the problem. Hm... maybe some "isolation time-out" cells are in order....

Ah, that's good. I don't know much about this game, so it's good to know Lorric shouldn't be a ticking time-bomb. Though if he did go mad, I wouldn't be putting money on a one-footed dwarf in an ass kicking contest. :)

Heh. I guess it made the same kind of sense to the creator too. Well, if time-out cells would work, it would be a good idea, save you having to squander additional dwarves.

Is it still go?

 
Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
You might be able to calm down chronically angry dorfs by making some ridiculously nice rooms and assigning them for a while. This also has the added bonus of pissing off the nobles.

September is shaping up to be a busy month for me, but I'm going to try my damndest to get an update in this weekend. Stay tuned.

Re: Let's Play some more Dwarf Fortress, HLP!
So..... there WAS going to be a hilariously terrible story associated with today's update, but Dwarf Fortress decided to do THIS to me:


I swear on whatever you all will accept that this is a complete accident. Truly, I was fully prepared to roll with the disaster that had unfolded, but Dwarf Fortress decided it wasn't to be. Basically, a shortage of pants caused a near-tantrum spiral since dwarves apparently cannot handle being uncovered. A LOT of adult dwarves bought it, including many Named. This even follows a distribution of iron chain shirts to all adults. At least the final stage of the Armed Citizen Initiative did in fact wind up saving lives- most of the dead were berserkers put down by the militias, unequipped children, or dwarves who snapped non-violently and starved.

Not that it matters, since the crash rolled everything back. I'll try and update from this very rare reprieve from disaster as soon as I can.

I imagine that's good for me. With the place in chaos, I can't see the one-footed Lorric having a very good survival chance.

I tinkered with chemicals. Dunno if that's a good or a bad thing.

But at least I can't be the cause of that kind of a problem... I think. :nervous:
