Oh, wow. Helmauthors is truly a cursed place. Also, forgive the .bmp. I was using Paint and got sloppy. :3

I have a really bad feeling about this... I've been watching this fortress for 1 minute, and this happens already?
Ingiz has gone mad, and is running through the fortress on a killing spree. Everyone is sick, thirsty, hungry, or wounded, so they are basically lying in bed waiting for the woodworker to bust in through the doors to get them. ;o
I designated a new dumping zone for bodies and refuse, and a new 20-slot tomb to store some of the bodies, but nobody wanted to do any work! They just lie around and wait to go crazy/berserk/die.Opal 7th, 205:
Oh dear...Opal 10th, 205:
Ingiz's rampage eventually came to a halt, 3 days later.
We're down to 11 now... it's not looking good.
(also, sorry for not taking more general pictures of what's going on; it was all pretty confusing scene of miasma, blood, and refuse, so I just kept with logfiles.)Opal 17th, 205:
Mere days have gone by since the big outbreak of Ingiz... and NOW THIS?!
Now we have an ex-champion running through the halls. Just great. Opal 25th, 205:
Should have turned your head to the sky and drank it, fool! Opal 28th, 205:
I guess I didn't take a picture of these events... but it looks like we're down to 6 dwarves. They're all mortally ill and lying on their beds just waiting to die. WE NEED MORE BUCKETS!Obsidian 16th, 205:
Deler Ibdesmar was the last remaining adult dwarf to die. All that remains is one little child...
Whoa... that's a lot of blood.
And finally... it was only a matter of time... Tekkud let herself fall asleep, and hunger overcame the poor dwarven girl. With that, Helmauthors had lost it's final resident.
So, it only took about a month ingame to lose 22 dwarves. Everyone was sick, hungry, wounded, crazy, or thirsty, and nobody wanted to do anything. I really doubt this save is recoverable, but if anyone else wants to try, be my guest!
I'd be down for a remake; I'd love to put in a full year on a fort that isn't doomed from the getgo. I swear I'll spend more time taking better pictures, too. :D
