    Dwarfs are VERY narrow minded

    Dwarfs: Can colonize hell. Uncreative when it comes to buckets.

    I think the best part is that the Dwarf somehow got into a situation where he was more bothered by the lack of a container to store the water, than a lack of water itself.

    Get the "Lazy Newb Pack"

    Its a nice little tool to help you set up games... Make sure you set the tile set to something playable... the default ascii is a bit rough.

    So I set out! I began digging a hole into the mountain, but then I accidentally channeled a flow of water in front of my mountain. So yeah.

    I have a feeling this is going to be fun.

    I'm up to winter of my first year, and things are largely proceeding smoothly. My fisherdwarf refuses to fish for some reason, but I've got 200 barrels of food set aside, so I'm okay there. I'm concerned about my seeds though; I've actually run out of Plump Helmet seed, but I have some already planted, so I've cut all food production and focused on booze making so I can get seeds instead of burning them.

    One of my dwarves died, sadly; one of my miners was channeling and managed to die in what was probably ankle-deep water... The dwarves took a long time to haul off a donkey's corpse (which starved to death. I guess nobody was feeding it or something) so it miasma'ed the fortress for a few days.

    I've got my Mason churning out stone statues so I'll have some things to trade the next time some traders arrive. He's made a few masterpieces, so I'm confident in his ability.

    Somehow I've managed to avoid having any major catastrophes so far, so I'm a bit proud of myself. To be fair, I was reading guides so I knew how to make things and wasn't totally stumbling around in the dark.

    I started a new adventure, and on the 5th day all of my livestock walked into the river and were just devoured by eels and Otter beast men.....I got the feeling that the game just hated my spawn. Then, six days after that the Otter beast men walked out of the river and murdered my dwarves..........I literally looked away and then turned back and all my dwarves were dead. WTF!!

    It wasn't that they were tough but it was more the fact that there were nine of them, and the kept killing my dwarves as they came out from the mines.

    I had my first Strange Mood today! One of my dwarves happily took over the Craftdwarf shop and is now milling around the fortress, stealing all the wood he can get his hands on.

    I hope whatever he makes is good.


    Edit: He made an Alder Scepter. I guess that's nice.

    Okay, one of my dwarves lost an arm, and my other dwarves are happily ignoring the miasma it's making. I have refuse stockpiles, but nobody bothers to take care of it. What's going on?

    Edit: Well luckily, the arm fucking rotted, so I guess I don't have to worry about it anymore.

    I learned today I valuable lesson about slopes. I dug into an exposed area in the cliff, and found it there's a slope leading into it, which means I basically opened up a back door to my fortress, though which gobbies have snuck in to steal things twice, and snatch two babies. I'm less concerned about the babies; they were stealing my booze from my working dwarfs.

    In response I began the construction of a lot of walls. The masons will be busy for a while.

    Edit again: I found out you can just REMOVE slopes, silly me. So now that's fixed. Everything's going smoothly, got a nice inflow of iron and gems now. I'm starting to wonder when Fun will begin.

    One of my Axedwarves died taking on a goblin thief. I guess my military needs more training.

    Question; if I set my military's uniforms to metal armor and posses said armor, do I need to manually get each of them equipped properly or will they do that on their own?

    They *SHOULD* do it on their own

    The most fucking bizarre and stupid thing ever happened. Two dwarves decided to sleep IN THE FUCKING RIVER ONE DAY, despite having perfectly good rooms. I'm not saying on the surface and floating along, they nestled into a bizarre dry path a z-level beneath the surface.

    Then winter hit. THE FUCKING RIVER FROZE AND TRAPPED THEM. Good fucking riddance.

    Edit: I managed to get them to dig out. In other news, one of my bedridden ex-military dwarves with only 1 leg gave birth to a baby. The baby promptly died of thirst. The good news is that at least the dwarf probably won't be able to do much damage when she goes insane, being largely confined to a bed and all.

    The Fortress suffered its first raid today. Four goblins came to ruin use, but I quickly mobilized the military. Three of the goblins fell to my proud dwarves; the last fled for the hills. Alas, one of my hammerdwarves was badly wounded in the fighting. I had him relieved from duty so that he could rest and recover, or perhaps spend his last days in what comfort he can get.

    Edit: Seems he might live. He was bleeding from the head and chest, and his fucking upper spine was broken, but that didn't stop him from mining the moment he was relieved from duty. I promptly took away his labors XD

    After going through the Fortress' stocks, it came to my attention that we were sitting on about 150 wild strawberry seeds and 250 plump helmet spawns. I immediately ordered more farmland to be prepared, and then began to keep a closer eye on the farmers. It turns out most of the "farmers" that probably got booted from the Mountainhomes couldn't even be bothered to plant a seed. I quickly corrected the issue; the Fortress will need more booze!

    Well sadly, my first fortress died today in a pretty lame way. A Goblin Seige arrived, and I discovered too late that about 80% of them were archers. My military got pretty much torn up charging up a hill to reach them.

    Lame, It wasn't even something fun like a tantrum spiral D:

    Tantrum spirals are the worst...

    You are using Dwarf Therapist right?
