It seems Merusk wasn't a vampire, just an asskicker of epic proportions. So, who is the hammer drawf (with a limp) I so masterfully saved? :)

Thanks for an excellent DF thread, good stuff!

Can one cure vampirism in a dwarf?
It's planned, yes. Which means it will be a very, very long time. What a shame! Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?
Why is nobody making an engraving commemorating my inglorious suffocation in magma?
You're technically still "missing", so no-one really knows what happened.
Those engravings are awesome.
I hear they're even more elaborate in adventure mode.  NDA
Soooo, how he hell did everybody turn into a vampire again?

Could the water supply be contaminated? If a vampire bleeds into water and other dwarfs drink the water, they become a Vamp. Same thing happens if they happen to drink Vamp blood...

Or Torchfatal could just have a wonderful reputation as THE place to go for the worshipers of the Vampire god!!
I contaminated the well, it is much more Fun this way. Setting it up is also what had me so frustrated a few updates back. I can post specifics if people want to mimic it for their own game.

I like that I crafted a toy hammer while Torchfatal burned. I'm like a vampire Nero.

Very bad news, it seems the save game has become corrupt as I reliably get freezes a few minutes after starting. This may be the last update in the story of Torchfatal...

Good night sweet prince.

This has definitely been one of the best radicalthons we've had, well done!

I'm not giving up on the save yet, after reading forums and bug reports I'm going to let this run overnight and see if it just needs time to chug. When their bug report site feels like sending me a confirmation e-mail I'll upload the save and hopefully get it resolved. This would be a very anticlimactic way for the fortress to end...

After trying to figure out what the bug is, I have good news and bad news:

The good news is I found a workaround to the crash.

The bad news is that the crash is occurring due to a military bug.

What this means is as soon as pretty much anything attacks the fortress it's game over. I'll try to build traps galore and simply try to survive, but the end is near. At least it will be the ending we were expecting. I still am not getting any confirmation e-mails from their bug tracker site, is it just me?

Back from holiday, and a combination of this military bug being frustrating (dwarf x is interrupted by naked mole dogs ad nauseum) and ck2 having its claws in deep will cause this radicalthon to end. It was a very fun ride, however this will in no way be the end of the Torchfatal story...

I don't know when it will happen but I want do an adventure mode radicalthon, with the purpose of training a dwarf to single-handedly retake Torchfatal from what ever brings it to its end (I'll do one last post where the fortress falls to the next invader). It'll be a lot more role-playing then this one, it will be funny to read the engravings with some sort of in-world view.

However the thoughts of doing an f13 succession game sounds exciting, and It would be much more fun running an adventurer through both fortresses. I can abandon Torchfatal and pass whoever wants to start the succession the world, so everyone can experience the joy that is horrid slime. It would be a perfect time for people who have read this thread and have no idea how to play or are beginners to try, because as we've seen, failing horribly makes the best stories. If we can't get one up and running you'll all just have to wait until my itch resurfaces to get your next fix of dwarf-brand fun!

I would love to play in a succession game.  I've played a lot of Dwarf Fortress, but I haven't played in over a year.  It could be a very fun radicalthon.

Very fun and engaging to read and follow the lives of the dwarfs of F13. I would be up for a succession game, but I am very very poor at it, so I might just burn everything down!

This thread caused me to start playing back in June.  Haven't stopped. 

How do you have so much adamantium?  I've only ever found one vein that wasn't a secret door to another dimension - and even then my dwarves didn't have enough to be making beds and stitching wounds with it.

You were the classic general behind the lines, I'm not sure how the military will function now without you to blindly throw dwarves into the fight!

You haven't died yet no (I'll have to post who is still up and running). I hadn't thought of the tickling possibilities, only a truly diabolical weapon would have alpaca wool spikes to disable foes with laughter!

Glad to see I brought someone into the fold! One of the things when I was trying to fix the bug that caused the crash to desktop caused a permanent full reveal of the map, so I know where all the adamantine veins are. A little bit cheating, but I think of it as a reward for getting the save back to a usable state. I only have a dozen or so wafers left though, so my adamantine making days are coming close to an end.
