So, I'm just wandering along through this forest, looking for a cave where I could maybe kill some dragons or something and get their fat loot. This was shortly after I had gotten my throwing to legendary +2 (remember this).

Another example of Dwarf Fortress awesomeness. As you can see armor protects against a pike like it should and would in reality. This injury would have required a crutch (which are oddly hard to find in adventure mode) if it penetrated or I didn't have armor there.

Started off well enough. Small Goblin ambush managed to pick off a few of my dwarves, but I got most everyone inside. The goblins wanted to go after the easy pickings, intimidated no doubt by the looming presence of the vast tower of doom above my fortress and the blood-and-vomit-covered walls of the fortress' entrance.

I finally identified my resident vampire. He was a migrant bone doctor that came in my second wave. After the hammerer refused to carry out the beating he was sentenced to, I locked him in his room. D'oh, vampires don't eat or drink. Oh well, I'll dig a pit above his room and fill it with water bucket by bucket. D'oh, vampires don't breathe. Fine, I'll crash the damn ceiling in on his head.

In the year 1051, the dwarven fortress known as "AncientCats" was established by the order of dwarves known as "The Fondled Rack", no seriously, that's their name! Things went well from the very beginning and there was much prosperity for all. Masterful crafts made from the finest rocks and bones fueled the young fortress's growing economy, though in the early years the trade broker was rather aggressive and many traders left in anger. But with time comes experience.
