comment Gheed is abusing my addiction. What are my odds when gambling in Diablo 2?
@Molomby The majority of my time with Diablo II was pre-expansion, so that may be what I'm remembering.

comment How do I read the attributes for a dwarf in Dwarf Therapist?
Hm. This screenshot from the DT Google Code page suggests that the number is supposed to be the value of the attribute, which suggests that the text descriptions you're seeing are not actually relevant to the numerical values.

@SaintWacko - Good question. Still going from memory because I didn't have a chance to check this last night - doesn't DT have a way to see an overview of a dwarf's stats and skills? I vaguely recall seeing something like that. IIRC, this will show the current level and EXP to level of the stats and skills for that dwarf. That might shed some light on what the numbers you're seeing mean.

I don't have a copy of DF and DT in front of me to check this with, but that number might be an indicator of how much experience that stat needs to level up.

comment What is a Queen Vampire doing in my fortress?
Or just let her steal clothing from the migrants you put in there with her after she's gobbled them up.

comment Can I make bolts out of dead goblins?
What version are you using? I'm on v0.34.11 and it won't let me butcher goblin partial skeletons, which makes my marksdwarves sad.

comment Dealing with thieves in Dwarf Fortress
Correct. I like to place my depot well inside my fortress so I can protect it, if necessary.

comment Why am I being sent to kill Peasants?
I haven't played the new version yet, but I recall reading something in the dev notes about vampires and werewolves being able to disguise themselves as normal folk. Is it possible that there's more to your peasant than meets the eye?

comment Is there anything to do with multiple crafting items?
@Oak - Little update. I fired Dredmor up the other night for the first time in a while and found that I could split stacks of crafting items by Alt-clicking them in the inventory screen. Happy hunting.

comment How do I convert a down stairway to an up/down stairway in Dwarf Fortress?
I'm having trouble visualizing the problem. Any chance you could provide a couple screenshots?

comment Should I move my village underground before triggering hardmode?
@MatthewScharley Would it be possible to replace the first block of regular dirt in your trench with ash/clay/etc. to prevent the trench itself from becoming corrupted/hallowed? I haven't gotten to the point yet where I can test this, but will be giving it a spin soon.

comment Is it common to die at work?
I know every day I spend at my 9-5 kills me a little bit on the inside.

comment How can I make Dwarf Fortress easier?
@SevenSidedDie Before it had Linux compatibility, it ran just fine under Wine. You might want to look into a Windows emulator. I'm not a habitual Mac user, so I can't really make any specific recommendations, though.

@bwarner Sounds like I have a new weekend project to add to my list... :)

comment Gheed is abusing my addiction. What are my odds when gambling in Diablo 2?
I could be mis-remembering, but wasn't there supposed to be one rare, set or unique item per visit to gambling? It's been a while since I played, but I recall using the strategy of going in with enough money to buy everything to be guaranteed one special item and selling back all the blues.
