Your heart is pierced.
you die from blood loss
The flying Darkness pierces the flesh, bruising the skin, fracturing the bone, and tearing the heart.
anonymous2 convulses in pain.
anonymous2 has been stricken down.

PEASANTS TO BE GROUND INTO THE EARTH

Can you add me too :3 ?

Well, after much delay, Day 3 is here!
I'm going to do be doing this one a bit differently; recording and making this post while playing the game. That should keep things fresh or something...
Right now, the entire crew is working on bringing all our odds and ends into the new stockpile; an area I set up on what was originally going to be the trash heap. I wanted to bring all the stuff indoors so, if it rained, we wouldn't be left with rotting wood and spoiled food. I'll also show you guys the current progress on the fort:
As you can see, Rex and Hero have came across some rocks; the reason you only see a few in the back of the fort is because it is the first stone they have came across. Thus far, everything has been easy-to-dig sand, but now Mudstone has been located. Mudstone takes longer to dig through, but leaves behind... well, mudstone. Mudstone is a decent building material, so we will be keeping it!
Meanwhile I took a look at the local wildlife; we have deer, several species of fish... and a giant panda?! If this thing sticks around, I think we will be seeing dwarves riding armored war-pandas into battle!
Right now the dwarves are taking their first break; superpow is getting drunk and Taeshi and Nik are eating some mushrooms. Nothing too exciting... Meanwhile I have been planning the next floor of the fortress; this floor will be devoted to the craft of woodcutting; here we have two 3x3 areas to house our Carpenter's Workshop and a Wood Furnace. I want to get this up ASAP in order to create some beds for our dwarves. A few nights of sleeping on the ground will get them all in a bad mood!
I probably should of mentioned we brought some livestock with us; two water buffalo. Both are female, so breeding is out of the question, but we can let them get nice and fat and butcher them for their meat! Or keep them around to scare off any pesky wildlife, considering we have no defenses whatsoever. The only self-defense in our entire fortress is Taeshi's biting skill. I don't think that counts as a reliable goblin-deterrent
Let's have a look at the finished progress of today's work:

Once you have the materials just set up layers of traps they work pretty well against early ambushes and the occasional thieves.

I will be using by own traps, but not ones you can just place and forget about. Drowning chambers and all that
Anyone have any suggestions on any changes they would like to the Let's Play? More/less pictures, longer/shorter updates, different kind of narration, etc.

Of course these are just suggestions and I suggest you go at whatever pace you feel is best.

so rex what kind of defense plans did you have in mind for the fort? aside from drowning chambers.

I plan to use magma, cave-ins, and of course, dwarves!
They aren't really day by day... its 2-3 months per update. A DF day is only a few seconds. But I can change that to be seasonal updates, if you so desire

Seasonal or yearly updates would be best in my opinion.

also, as a last ditch defense when we are down to our last dwarf and without any other options, I vote we use a TNCS (ThermoNuclear Cat-Splosion)
video and explanation provided by codysseus.
it also spreads a wave of fire and destruction across the dwarven lands, killing and burning all in it's path.
