    Patience, please. Vlad needs Grim's expertise at information warfare. Our man may be retired, but it wouldn't be the first case of patriotism making a grizzled veteran taking the axe up again :salute:

    Man, I am glad I have a few hundred bars of soap to clean up them blood :D

    8 years into the game, I have had about 12-20 forgotten beast appear. One of the first is still around, throwing fireballs as things and burning up half the first cavern before disappearing into the dark. Another just appeared, a big ass tick with wings and poisonous bite. The others?

    3 were killed by another forgotten beast (well, one of them was made of snow, so it was basically sneezed on and turned into a puddle of water).

    The rest were killed by magma crabs. I kid you not. There are two fumaroles in the third layer right next to each other and the FBs love to dance on its edge. The crabs come up, spat at them, and they dodge right into the magma. It was pretty hilarious.

    But what I really want to show was this:

    [​IMG]

    I really don't know what to do with them...


    EDIT: Dear Lord. Less than 5 minutes after I wrote that, the FB tick got into a fight with a magma crab and rolled into the magma. This one kicked the magma crab to death before the magma dissolved it. No corpse left.

    I usually trade my food surplus for high value leather and instruments/books because I can't be bothered to make them. Also afaik the seed cap for each plant is 200 or so, so you have a tonne of different seeds you're probably not replanting, you can cook/mill/press some of them into various things or just dump them in magma. As for the drinks you could try hiring more entertainers in your taverns as they seem to make your dwarfs drink more and as an added bonus, poison any non-dwarf loiterers.

    I have been buying entire caravans with a few barrels of food. I have 5 caravans of humans, 2 dwarves and 4 elves coming every year, and the supplies are growing rather than reducing. I blame the dwarf caravans, who bring in tons of food, which I compulsively get, cook and clog up my food stores :D

    It is a vicious kapitalist cycle: buy raw food, cook, sell at a premium, buy more raw food...

    Did that a couple times and then I almost had a tantrum spiral when it lay rotting in my kitchen area. Now I just "sell" whatever I want to get rid off and buy whatever strikes my fancy at exorbitant prices. The human caravan is almost entirely full of leather and I buy any kind of high value pelt so most of my bags are made from giant lion fur, also cheese basically anything with a non-automatable supply chain : P



    Aren't you running into some pretty shitty fps with all that junk lying around?

    The animals are far worse, but yes, the FPS is not pretty. I am trying to slaughter them all, resulting in the 1400 meat pieces lying around, despite 10 kitchens and 4 stills going full bore.

    Yeah my fortress has sadly gone full chink after after a cursplosion started bringing my fps into to single digits, I'm back into the 30's now that I've locked them into a room with butcher's workshops and farmer's workshops for fast gelding and it's slowly going down. But I'm considering expanding my magma trash disposal system to include pets because can you really abide your dwarves feasting on masterwork cur brain cake...

    Nice all the elves have given me so far is a breeding pair of Giant Kestrels, which at least help my hunters to clear the skies. The Rutherers look nice, I'm hoping to get some beefy breedable animals so I can try out some mega necrobacon with my captured necromancers, who has been stuck in cages since the first year... I've kinda been ignoring the caverns though, I embarked in a savage tropical biome hoping for some Giant Rhinoceros but so far no dice, all I get is swarms of buzzards...

    Ask not what your LP can do for you, ask how drunk you need to be to finish your LP.

    Don't be racist. Shitting Buzzard is a great and honoured name in certain cultures, along with Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse.

    Is your kingdom dying or dead? My best miner just turned into a queen, had no caravan and just got my 2nd migrant wave, turns out I'm the only non gobbo site left in the world so I think it's time to hunker dahn!

    Edit: turns out I can't read - try poking around in legends browser, see if your king is captured by goblins or something weird? maybe you somehow lost access - do you have any holdings that are economically linked(I haven't poked around a lot in world mode as my games tend to brick occasionally when the troops return)

    The King is still there.

    There is a goblin town that is economically linked to me. Don't know why...! I have never invaded it or done anything to it. In fact, I don't even have a military, just a TON of strategically placed cage traps, and a heavily trapped tunnel linking my side entrance to the outside world that the gobbo invasions run through.

    My depot has a clear path out.

    The caravans and migrants just stopped coming after the first year or so.

    Yeah had a gobbo town linked as well at some point, thinks it just makes raids more likely.
