Afraid of goblins, the local wildlife, or what? Unprovoked dragon attacks? Mass cave-ins? Starvation?

Hm. you have a good point. This game rivals NetHack for the number of causes of death you can carve on headstones.

To be honest, in-fighting. I've lost two previous forts to tantrums and general dwarf-on-dwarf violence. Although given the size of the first immigrant wave, starvation may rear its ugly head soon.....

Have you considered making a decent-sized (6 by 6?) dining room in rock? Regardless of the quality of tables and chairs, wallpapering the room with engravings tends to send it close to legendary, which helps avoid terminal cases of depression a little.

For some reason, I'm getting the "Ate in a Legendary Dining Room" thought already. I'm thinking it's the shear size.

Could be, yeah.
All in all, they're a bit easy to get 'legendary', but it helps stave off rioting and general mayhem.

timmeh, would an embedded map be useful for your journal - so you can put maps and points of interest directly onto your site?


Might be useful elsewhere.

It would, although this fortress has gone down the tubes. I would love to have an imbedded map for future journals, how would I do that?
