I embarked on a border between a Wilderness and Haunted biomes. I get about 15 minutes of carving out an initial space and stockpiling everything, when a herd of zombie elks arrive and begin killing my dwarves — including my military dwarf. My mason goes down shortly after, and I didn't have doors built yet, so the elks took out my entire fort. After laughing about this — I've never lost a fort that quickly ever before, especially not in a pretty mild territory — I put together a second squad of 3 military dwarves and 4 peons and attempt to reclaim.read more

I was rocking along with a fairly successful fortress in a untamed wilds tropical forest, the most advanced I've ever achieved. One hundred a fifty dwarfs (about a third of them kids), indoor plumbing, huge stocks of supplies, a ring of traps to catch snatchers - not a lot of metal equipment or serious defenses but my twenty or so militia had been able to handle everything up to light goblin sieges and wandering minotaur without breaking a sweat up to this point.

Goddamn. Note to self: embarking in Joyous Wilds with an aquifer, near a necromancer tower... this was a Bad Idea. Met a pretty cool fellow who called himself Bembul though.
