Has anyone tried the adventure mode? Is it any good?

I have only played Dwarf mode and it is epic fun. Maybe it is too easy to survive though. I usually just quit my games when the fps drops too low. The system requirements for that game are a bit unreasonable.

Adventure mode is mildly entertaining at best and extremely frustrating at worst. All of the quests right now consist of "travel to lair/cave/temple and kill critter X". It gets dull after a while. Quests increase in difficulty as your reputation improves, but once you're killing Titans there's no more to do.

Combat is sortof interesting, but also frustrating as dismemberment and/or nerve damage will cause permanent disability even if you survive the fight. Occasionally even a groundhog will get lucky enough to chew your arm off.

The most fun can probably be had by exploring your old fortresses, looting them for high-quality steel equipment, and then attempting to purge the nearest civilization of all life

If you find it too easy to survive then it's time to delve deeper See how many of the *CENSORED* you can kill before they overrun your fortress.

I haven't gotten very far in adventure mode- it seems kind of sluggish (not performance wise, just takes forever to do anything). I've had a few characters win their first fight or two, but then the town doesn't have shops for me to upgrade my equipment and I end up taking a quest against pike-wielding thieves or some night-ogre-spouse that takes me down in one shot. I also find the day-night-sleeping thing hard to get a handle on.

I haven't really gotten very far in the fortress mode either. I've watched a video tutorial on setting up squads in the military but am still pretty baffled about getting them to train, equip things, etc.
