I tried starting a fort in a Sinister swamp the other night. There were some zombie echidnas or some stupid creatures there, but nothing much else. "Great, — I thought. — a relatively safe start should give me enough time to establish a fort capable of holding its own in this scary bog."

So last night, my fort was in the middle of building a grand sewer system to provide water for all living areas, hospitals, and random pit stops in the caverns. All wells were at least 2 z levels deep, cisterns were fuckhueg reservoirs, all the water came from a river up at ground level to protect against random swimming evil baddies crawling into my shit.

A Forest Titan attacked my fort and my squad of Axedorfs fought back and forth with the bastard for a month trying to bring him down. The only loss was the right arm of one guy when the Titan clamped his jaws down on it and ripped it off. He trailed blood all the way back to the Fort after the battle was over, but instead of going to the hospital to get patched up, he went straight back down to the barracks and started training to use his axe in his other hand.

The very first time I found Hidden Fun Staff (HFS), I ended up digging into the very bottom of the pit. You know what came out after me? A Demon Lord. Not Toads, not Tentacle Rape (that came later though), nor a few Spirits of Fire. Just a single Demon Lord. He then ascended my giant elaborate ramp staircase, and despite my best efforts, proceeded to open up a can of whoop ass on my entire fort. In the very first moments of battle, he struck down 5 dwarves including my leader. He then proceeded to go on a rampage throughout the warehouse/stockpile district of the fort, setting people on fire, and in total killing over 40 dwarves.read more

I drafted two dorfs into the army, pretty standard procedure. Decided to have them spar with each other so they wouldn't suck in an actual fight. Now, I was pretty new to the game at the time, so I didn't realize that my dwarves had both picked up iron spears instead of wooden weapons. The result, of course, is that one of them was mortally wounded.
