Hey, watch it when you're talking about murderous raccoons!  That was my Uncle Bert who got ahold of some raisins that had been fermenting in a can of old apple juice!

Once I had a forgotten beast made of fire; I just flooded the entire fuking fort and that killed it.

Good times.

A game where the freakking BALROG is met by the most awful cries of "Monday already?!"

That's why I install lava pumps in all my mines. And they on fail 50% of the time! That's pretty good for Dwarf Fortress.

Right. I want to do a variation of this to a bunch of elves, and drop them into the circus.

I would if I knew how to. :| I don't even know how to build a fortress but somehow I managed to get my dwarves to dig a channel I think on my first world ever.

Thanks for the link.

My new fortress in a world that I recently created is going to be completely militarized. And I think my crowning achievement will either be turning criminals into expendable shock troops with dwarves that have gone insane being some of the best fighters in the fortress; or building a tunnel straight under to the closest elf compound and digging another tunnel to the circus with a door that can only be opened by a lever. When the elves have crossed the line, I'll unleash the clowns.

Would it not be better too dig lots of hundred z-level staircases and unleash them ALL?

Neat. I still prefer tactical magmafilled mine-cart strikes before more drastic measures. Still, I'm old-fashioned type who would use magma for everything, as long as it is lethal application.

Mountain-collapsing doomsday lever - for when it ABSOLUTELY HAS TO DIE.
