We can use the current one. I like the big trees and slightly smarter dorfs.

I am horribly confused as to what I missed while I was asleep.

And my dreams were horrible, but strangly unrelated to the thread. I will leave it as I am not proud of what went on in my head.

The SCP Foundation has done a pretty good job of creeping me out, occasionally. Either due to the inevitable doom invoked by some SCP:s or just being plain inexplainable and creepy.

Certainly you could argue that DF is a lot like The Sims, only... you know... with more vomit and decapitation.
If you launch a wooden mine cart towards the ocean at a sufficient speed, you can have your entire dwarf sail away in an ark.

I sank many hours into SCP... But it was more out of fascination than enjoyment of being creeped out. There wasn't really much there that creeped me out... though a couple things did, jussssstttt slightly - like the rebar creature (can't remember its number). Most of the articles on there make for really good reads.


Speaking of reads, I'm hopefully going to have one finished later today - possibly even later this morning, if I hurry it up.

LOL at all the slenderman stuff, never understood how anyones scared of that personally. I mean its basically just The Boogeyman 2.0, and I got over that when I was 10.

Awww, aren't you a tough little biscuit? *tugs on cheek*
    More to the point, this really is not the best way to introduce yourself to a thread. Dismissing others' reactions to something makes you look like a douchebag.

True, but I figure I earned a little free douchebaggery by nominating Spearbreakers for the Hall of Legends. Just a little douchebaggery though, don't wanna overdo it :P

Hmm... Possibly. Thanks for nominating Spearbreakers, though. :) It'll be a couple months before you can vote on it. Let's hope we stay epic til then.

Tomio, I sent you a PM, but I don't think you've seen it yet. I need a response before I can post the next Vanya story bit.

Thanks, Tomio. I was about to post it, but suddenly realized that for some reason it didn't save my corrected draft. I'm going to have to go through it all again.  ::) not looking forwards to that. It may be a bit before I post.

I'm not satisfied, but... I've spent forever on it, editing and re-editing. The first edit felt better. I don't like this one as much. I'm also giving links to the music I listened to as I wrote the different parts... something special this time. I think it reads better with music.

Spiffing, i say, absolutely spiffing, old chap. A thumping good read. Here's hoping the fortress continues long enough for more adventure, tallyho what!

That was great, Talvi. I loved the story... just one thing piques my interest though. Reudh is more or less recovered now from Froggie's drugging, accidental or intentional, so he probably wouldn't stalk Vanya, just be curious about her as she looks like no other dwarf in the fort.
