Amost Fathtoral

18 June 2012, 19:05 Rating: 6 [+]

I was sieged by several squads of goblins including some marksgoblins. But because I had so many champions I figured it would be no problem so I sent my guys out. Only too late did I realize that everyone except for axelord Amost Fathtoral were sleeping or partying. So Amost Fathtoral did the only logical thing, he went out to face the hordes alone. As he approaches the horde both his lungs are immediately pierced by a crossbow bolt. But this doesn't stop him, he charges their ranks and cuts down goblins by the dozen.

I tell my dorf: "Hey, go put that harmless unarmed GOBLIN into the pit".
Dorf says: "Right you are sir. One GOBLIN in a pit coming right up."
Opens cage.
Dorf runs off like a fucking idiot, leaving the Goblin to wander aimlessly around the fortress, until it either runs into one of my war hounds or falls into one of my cage traps and is caught again.
Rinse, repeat.

Tantrum spiral

I embarked on a volcano in the middle of one of my seas, pretty cool location, magma stack 20 z-level vertical cliffs surrounding a cove on the beach, with crazy steep hills to the top of the volcano. Cave system is equally steep and cramped, just huge pits for the most part. Since it is an island theres been no ambushes/sieges, and only the occasional forgotten beast. Traders would arrive in the late autumn when the bay would freeze over. Its been a pretty peaceful fort, until recently that is. I decided that i was going to build an obsidian lighthouse/tomb off the beach of my fort. Complete with a burning pile of lignite objects at the top floor to be a beacon.

I once had a dorf in adventure mode who lost his left foot to a troll or ettin, or something with butchers knife, anyway, he was on ground day to day, everyday. Even though he was horribly slow I played him anyway and I wanted to visit mountainhomes so badly I went on a journey north meeting goblins on the way.
Imagine a footless dorf laying on the ground covered by two steel shields biting the shit of goblins legs. And it worked, I lived through two packs of goblin ambushers, and a kobold ambush, but it doesn't matter. What matters is the style I lived through this.
