and here's a random little story based on that (basically to make it look nicer to read.)

---

The soldiers of Spearbreakers stood in the great Microcline room, battered, some dead, many injured, but otherwise unbeaten. Though many of them were sore and tired and most of the animals were dead, they looked to the opening. Victory was within thier reach. They had gazed into the abyss, and the abyss had blinked first. "Come on!" Rose yelled as she hefted her hammer. "Let's burn hell to the ground!" She then stopped and considered that stament. "... Or wait, it's already burning, so-" "We're dwarves Rose. We'll figure out a way to burn it down anyway after we kick the tenents out." Fischer said as she began to hea for the opening down. "Tenents?" One of the axelords said, obviously confused. "Yes, Tenents. Because this is Spearbreakers and anything underneath it is our property. These things are just renting the space, and they haven't paid thier rent."

Thought I'd get this up. I've been working on it on and off, and I think it's ready now.
A side note: I'm not going to be on much the next few days. Just letting you guys know.

And there's that damn idealistic view or what have you again! Gawd, no one listens do they? Nah I'm just kidding. Excellent work Talvieno. Shame you won't be on much.

It's amazing what watching a bunch of dwarves fail to bludgeon a giant to death can do for one's mood.

I don't know where people are getting this place being under a state of compelete apocalypse. The Timewar story alone makes ir pretty clear that things are going well enough that most nations can afford to fight eachother AND the spawn.

The Spawn just REALLY don't like us is all. And yes, fatalistic is probably a better word.

Technically, those involved in the Timewar can manage a lot better than the dwarves can, with their extremely advanced tech (more advanced than what we have in real life), so that point doesn't quite count (or make sense :P). I seriously doubt that the dwarves have the extra resources to fight in the timewar.
Look at it from the dwarves' point of view - put yourself in their shoes.

If you don't look at it from a story standpoint, though, yeah, we're better off than we could be. :P I'm looking at it from a story standpoint, Splint. You've had the save for the past few weeks and it looks a lot cleaner and prettier for you - you're looking at it from a non-story, ingame perspective. Also, the journals are from Vanya's point of view, not mine.   She was sheltered to an extreme extent as she was growing up, and as a result, dark things have a tendency to look darker to her. I'm kind of disappointed that that's all that stood out in that whole journal entry, though. Still, thanks for the "excellent work" compliment. I'll be on when I can be.

Ah, yes. Forgot about the whole sheltered bit. And the reason dorfs are dumb enough to come here is that for the most part the fortress is fabulously wealthy, even if the bizzarictecture leads you to think otherwise ("Why are there copper doors that lead to nothing everywhere!?" - An unlucky goblin who got inside.) Honestly I think only dwarves who live here know what true horror is.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


I won't lie, I kinda feel like our dwarves have a right to be smug assholes to anyone who doesn't live in the fort since they pout up with all that shit and still stay sane. Usually. And I didn't consider Vanya's an elf, so things most dwarves wouldn't even care about after a certain amount of time probably still hit her pretty hard. Afterall, the average dwarf's reaction to baby and mother being fried is "Did I know them very well? Was I related? No? Who cares then."

And it does so make sense! If only taken in the context of the most advanced technology that doesn't belong to a megacorp being manportable firepower... Besides that I added a uranium mug to that standing so that automatically rendered it a mutated pile of shit :P

I lol'd. That was great.

I think our dwarves have a right to be assholes, too. Especially to foreigners or people who don't live in the place. Really, in my opinion, newcomers would probably call it hell, if only figuratively speaking.

Technically, that pretty often starts tantrum spirals, so... lol

Point conceded... Even if just by considering that most of our factions are from outside the spacetime-bubble anyway. :P If we're talking native nations, however... Well, none of the humans/goblins/elves are bothering to offer a full-scale war with us right now (so far).

edit: whoa, wait... Somebody used our pitchblende on mugs??

I humbly request Bombzero or whoever goes next, that you kill the tree humper diplomat. Fischer needs some elves on her kill list.
