note the comments are really disgusting, do not read the comments
@Canageek I do wanna make a special note of the bigot in the comments complaining by giving a sarcastic "congrats to Dwarf Fortress for appealing to a tiny minority of people" -- like buddy pal friend second of all it's fricking DWARF FORTRESS.
@gaditb I like the one that points out that real dwarf fortress fans will celebrate this because it means more exploitable subsystems
@gaditb like I think the most dwarf fortress thing I've seen in a while with the thread on how to use lesbians to optimize your military
@gaditb I don't, it was on Reddit. I looked it up to see what the community's reaction to gay dwarves was, and as I recall it was excellent lesbian dwarves are much less likely to combat. so dwarven militaries have gone from being male only to male, ace and lesbians.
@silentmonkfish @gaditb dwarves only get children's from having sex while married. lesbians only marry other women and those never have children. Dwarven mother's have the bad habit of carrying their children into combat where they get killed. Therefore dwarf fortress players were really happy that they can now expand their militaries from only men, to men, lesbians, ace dwarves oh and also by dwarves who are married to same-gender partners.
To a point.
Wild animals, if captured, can be trained to behave more or less like truly domesticated animals, at the cost of occasional retraining to keep them from going wild. Animals born to a trained mother (I'm not sure of the exact condition for eggs) are domesticated in the sense of dogs or cows.
How hard it is to train an animal depends on the trainer's skill but also on how well your civilization understands that kind of animal. As you train animals in your fort, you gradually improve your civilization's understanding of those kinds of animals, making it easier for future fortresses from your civilization to train them.
You can't get all the way to full domestication, though, alas.
