When mining goes bad!

So here I was happily playing a new world on Dwarf Fortress.

 

Oh. Look at that lovely gap. A bridge would go just brilliantly there, don’t you think? Well I’ll just mine some of this sand away – I’ll just select the whole lot, no need to worry about anything happening here. Let’s just get a nice gap so we can widen the floor and make the bridge.

 

 

Oh…

Oh.

It turns out that even leaving one unsupported block will create a landslide with enough force to knock both of your miners off the ledge, falling 3 z-levels and breaking many of the bones in their body, therefore scuppering your chances of actually making a fort. I love Dwarf Fortress.
