the mining for metal has found us a strange blue metal, it matchs the legends of "adamantine" perfectly, we shall begin excavation of the metal soon.
trogs have become a bit violent, so i sent a squad down to deal with them.
and by armok are they effective!
digging deeper we hit yet another cavern.
TRAGEDY! the loyal recruit Kikrost Bisekbesmar was killed defending our fort
due to the increased number of injurys i have ordered a hospital built with a cistern filled with river water from which a well will draw.. wait, SHIT! the rivers frozen! shit! SHIT!
oh wait, water from caverns...
digging out of a catacomb for the dead has begun, for me a gold floored room with statues has been planned
Finally after much work to get to it, we have adamantine! PRAISE THE MINERS!
in honor of our miners we shall be holding a party at the great hall! free booze! all squads get the day off! everybody drop your tools and weapons! lets get drunk and eat and sing songs!
A deep rumble shakes the fort.
then loud enough to wake the dead. terrifying screams of torment echo round the fort. I yell over all the noise and organise some workers into quick squads. and lead everyone to the mineshaft that the sound comes from.
everybody charges down,i run ahead and find a banshee is waiting, it sits there and it's black soulless eyes stare at me. those eyes are the last i see.
As my spirit (a single malt whiskey) drifts though the fort i see panic defenses being made, a wall is built in the shaft to try to stop the demons while the squads i had made where slaughtered by the foul demons.
the lower barracks are quickly swarmed with vomit demons, they destroy all the dwarfs there.
as i rose i saw the chief medical dwarf, a friend to many, banging on a floor that a savvy mason had built.
far below the battle rages, cadian is flung against a wall and explodes into a bloody spray.
the remaining dwarfs;
I have paid the ultimate price for opening hell. I have paid with my life. my last wish is that i could some how undo this process by which the fort has been maimed. i will never even be in my tomb, as their are hundreds of demons between my tomb and my body.
- Code: Select all
I have a backup, and don't plan to stop here. I will replay from the end of my last update and treat this one as a dream(all mining down will be curtailed) if the backup works. if not then have fun rody :lol:
