How quickly can I spawn the Obsidian Invasion ?

You'll need to have at least 3 hold and then pray to the rng god to get the huge calcite layer event
Oh *that's* what the calcite layer does!
And it also upgrade your hold three or four time over a short periods of time
But then you also lose the hold to the obsidian boys
If you just want to play as the lava boy it's an absolute win and if you have 2-3 ally you can easily beat the invasion and get a big hold out of it ! (And a nice modifier that last 100 years)
So to be clear, does the depth of your hold make any difference to whether this disaster can fire or is it instead linked to having 3 holds and seeing a certain event ?
The event can fire in any of your non capital hold so I don't think so
The more hold you have the more chances you have to get the event I think
So is there any way to accelerate the emergence of the 'strange rumours' ? I got the calcite event and then 100 years went by without the conditions being met to fire the disaster. It's basically pointless now and if I want to actually do an obsidian campaign I'll need to start again.
No but the hold can not be your capital
Fastest would be as Company of Blueshield, as you start close to the Shattered crown orcs and can bum rush them as soon as you have your own hold, getting you 4-5 holds in one war.
Those Hold doesn't count toward the total
Didn't know that, Though I would still argue Blueshield Company have easiest access to multiple holds.
Would they count if he didn't use one as his capital?
Depending on how much you’re willing to do you can probably console command the Calcite Layer event. Although I’m not sure which event it is, it’s probably in a hold, dwarf, or DiggyDiggy event file.
