It all started with a bear.
A Grizzly Bear managed to wander in the south entrance to the Hamlet. As it began towards the housing sector, I ordered the newly appointed Captain of the Guard to grab one of the Steel war hammers we bought (with plans of melting) to kill it.
The bear took one swipe at him, and killed him. Little did I know apparently the captain of the guard was buddies with the rest of the damn fort. A farmer, took one look at the guy next too him and went berserk attempting to deck him in the back of his head.
He missed and the Miller, gingerly turned and ripped his head off. With the Battlestar Galactica Theme Music this began a tantrum spiral. As if this weren’t enough, a goblin ambush started.
But wait, there’s more.
To those of you new to my tumblr it’s worth mentioning I tend to play with a modded race in Dwarf Fortress because frankly dwarves get boring after awhile and well, if it wasn’t obvious I’m a scalie (Think “Furry” but Scales instead of Fur) and enjoy using scaley races. XD
This means The dwarves aren’t my starter race. To those of you new to Dwarf Fortress for best results, check what races dislike you before embark. I did not. I was apparently at war with the Dwarves. A siege happened.
With everyone apeshit in the fort, blood, bodies, and junk everywhere, goblins killing people in the streets, a small dwarven army attacking I figured things couldn’t get worse.
Since the goblins were nearby, I loosed the bear we locked in a side room in the fort on them in hopes of it attacking them. Both the goblins and the bear went separate ways without so much as a sideways glace and returned to killing my people.
A few more Goblin ambushes popped on all sides of the fort, including the siege side, who began fighting the dwarves oddly enough. As the goblins died off the survivors retreated, the dwarves were defeated. I had two Nagas left, locked in their quarters soon to die from dehydration I unlocked the doors and let them run to what was left of the Great Hall.
Only to discover, the Bear was still alive, drunk, and pissed.
It began with a Grizzly Bear, it ended, with a Grizzly Bear.
