Just to help me get this straight, the continuity snarl is primarily caused by the fact that the surface of this realm should be solid obsidian, right?

Pretty much.

----

From a small bedroom in the heart of Spearbreakers, a message is sent. Both the medium of the message and the means of sending it are unlike anything which would be discovered by the dwarven race for at least 10 millenia (the exact timescale varies somewhat between iterations).

The following is a rough transcription of that message...



(Take the above as canon if you like -- I'm really just writing it because I'm bored.)
Oh, wow, fantasy + sci-fi... And a Dwarven secret agent? :\ From the future?

ARE YOU TELLING ME TALVI'S BEST MECHANIC WAS CHEATING WHEN HE MADE HIS MECHANISMS?!?! D=

If you can figure out how to make a gun shoot non-solid ammo in this game be my guest. I like the railgun Idea more. it breaks things.

Plus, I'm pretty sure a laser-based weapon would only be good for torture. A weapon that instantly cauterizes any wounds it inflicts would only really be lethal after an extended headshot.

Actually only the point of impact would be cauterized. The area around it would likely be a bloody mess from the water evaporating all at once, causing cell membranes to burst, in turn destroying surounding blood vessels, although depnding on the power output of the laser and the crap in the atmosphere it might not even do either and just make a really nasty sunburn. Or cook you alive in your armor.

Am I the only one thinking it's odd we 're discussing dwarves killing things with laser guns and time travel?

Apparently I'm the only one understanding that I was making a joke... or attempting to... blasters kind of fit in a little better with sci-fi dwarves, don't you think?

And yes, I thought the time travel idea was a little over the top too... lol   Cool, maybe, but still.

No harm done.
It seems like we're setting up one hell of a jacked up setting now.

Honestly, I was just trying to come up with an explanation for the whole But-Holistic-Pwned-The-Whole-World,-It-Said-So-Right-There fiasco that doesn't leave me banging my head against the wall. Of course, there's still a 99% chance that one or all of everybody else will now be banging their heads against the wall, but I have entirely too little empathy to really care.

I also put a list of links to the fortress posts in my first post in this thread, because the thread's kind of getting clogged with banter.

It seems my character is degrading a little mentally... butchering yaks for a hobby, and choosing one in particular because of its gibbering...

i may just continue this trend on my turn.

No, no, you misunderstand. You weren't butchering the gibbering yak. You were butchering the berserk yak, who got its skull caved in over half a month before.

Good call. The only reason this is happening is cause the updates are so damn far apart we end up babbiling like a stark raving mad pack of chickens.
