My name is Imli Na'Sera, I've volunteered to explore the area surrounding our settlement due to rumors among the other races that their fellows have been disappearing.
I've got a heavy maser, a gas mask, Some food, some water, a cutter, and a scanner.

Hmm, it looks like both the Miners and the Warriors have come to us for help. They hate each other, but both will trade with us, mainly for medicine. The Miners are off to the left, the Warriors down the middle tunnel. The right tunnel goes to a large chasm, and has several branching paths, most of them have not been explored. Since we found ourselves in this wierd system generations ago, we've managed to find some interesting but dangerous ore and refine it into an extremely powerful energy source. Coupled with our pre existing technology we've managed to carve out a nice living down here. Only problem is that we don't know where here is, and the tunnel the original explorers found doesn't go back to where they came from.

Hmm, OK, I have two of them chained to the tower caps up above the chasm, but if I unlock the chains on either one of them they will go hurtling into the pit as the weight of the rest of them drags them into the chasm, they will probably either break their arms or die if they hit the wall.

Would cutting the chain between 5 and 6 cause too much of a swing? Would you then be able to pull 3 up at once, or instead cut 5 off while still keeping her from falling?

Oh DUH. I got faked out, thinking it was a puzzle where you have to cut the chain in the right spot, and not a "use the fucking key, dumbass" puzzle.

Unlock the hand cuffs so they can grab ahold of you/the chain to keep from falling, then unlock the leg cuffs. They could climb out by themselves, or you could carry them up if you've got a good enough grip on the wall.

I know the goblins are all free now but I thought of another solution. You could've taken the chain off the three freed goblins, then reattached it to the hanging chain.

Cooked Mole Rat is not bad either.

Why did you let your slaves go? You aren't planning on freeing them, are you? You will need to find a way to regain control over them. I'd suggest forcing them to put the collars and hand manacles back on at gunpoint. Odds are one of them will try to run. Letting her escape would set a bad example for the rest of the group. Sadly you are going to have to kill her. That's what you get for doing something silly like giving them a taste of freedom.

For traveling take off the leg manacles and find some way of attaching them all together. If you incapacitate one of them somehow, the whole group grinds to a halt. Doing it by using one leg would be best. Classic stuff.

For the night arrange them like you found them. For Christ's sake don't chain them up near the edge of a cliff.

Remember that you don't have to treat them badly. As long as they remain submissive, you can treat them any way you want to. You can even be nice to them.

Choose one of them that would be the most suitable traveling companion and keep her and sell the others. Whichever one you keep should be able to be free except for the collar. Stockholm syndrome is your friend.

He doesn't know where they're going to, or why that slaver attacked them in the first place. He didn't actually see the slaver, as it came in while most people were asleep knocked the guards unconscious before they saw it. Normally he says they only have trouble with the "dorfs"

>Can we use a mushroom cap as a cushion, slide
it under the egg and carry it back to the city carefully?

That's a good idea if we could reach it.

>Can Doug chop it open enough to reach in and grab the egg?

Hmm, we could try that but if he slips it could break it.

>jam sword into edge of log away from troll egg. slowly pry it open via leverage

Hmm, the sword is too springy for that.

Also is there a suitable piece of stone we could use instead of the sword.

What's about the cutter? Isn't it some kind of tool actually? It should be possible to tune the beam steplessly. If so, use a low powered beam to cut the log.
No. 64701 ID: 8ca61a

Use the silk rope, and your bandages, as well as your new buddy's weapon for length if you need to enshroud the egg with the bandage and slowly lift and retrieve the egg securely, loop the silk rope if necessary.
No. 64702 ID: 9e9b47


Putting a beam of heat that close to the egg might damage it I'm thinking. Or kill the baby troll inside. May wanna try this last.
No. 64706 ID: 632862

Hmm. There's mud inside the log, which the egg is sitting on. Slide the log out from under the mud so that the egg stays in one place.

Or... if the egg floats, shove some water into the log so that it floats out the other side.

Thirdly, try tilting up the log so that the egg rolls out.

Well first he has a "particularly vicious" naked mole dog. The other side of his mouth grins, he seems proud of taming this one. They don't have any of this 'cash' stuff, whatever that is. There are some other animals he can show me, too.

The last thing he's got that he can give me is some kind of dark grey hair ball. He says it doesn't do much, but sometimes it opens its eye. It can make a cooing trill as well. One of the patrols found it by a dead magma vent.

He's got some more animals, but apparently they are 'too dangerous' to let out.

If the mole dog is supposedly tame, it should be more likely to kill your enemies than you.

It's twice as cute as any of the others, and ten times less likely to bite or gum your face off.

It was found by a dead magma vent? This thing probably isn't doing much right now because it's not in its proper environment. It needs more heat. I can't find it in the DF creatures index though. I wonder what it is?

I'm leaning towards the Olm.
