Just managed to kill my first ever enemy in dwarf fortress :D
A cyclops wandered in and started to kill my turkeys, and after hastily checking out a military tutorial video I just managed to get a squad of soldiers to the fort entrance armed with bronze axes.
Luckily it wasn't a strong cyclops, and perhaps it was winded a bit from running after my livestock, because the axedwarfs easily killed it. Still, I had to reload a couple of times to get the military squad orders and equipment right, and I confirmed that the cyclops was more than strong enough to kill a several dwarves before being taken down by a gang of inhabitants.
The kicker of the whole thing was a little 2 year old kid that randomly decided to join the fight from the adjacent tavern. The rest of the dwarves were quite taken aback by the death scene, but she clearly wasn't fazed at all. I'm going to have to keep an eye on her! Future captain of the guard or something.
