You guys did fix laptops, didn't you? I'd hate to not have any ammo for them...

Also, traps can be pretty effective, particularly magma-based ones... although I suppose not against Haxxor, the way they're trapavoid. I also seem to remember flying fireball-casting creatures... Honestly, this mod is more of a challenge to defeat than the Spearbreakers mod. lol   (Maybe not Spearbreakers II, though... And definitely not the God of War mod I've been working on every now and then (that thing's crazy hard).)

Oh, and don't forget minecart traps. A nested array of rapidly-moving minecarts will totally wipe out almost EVERYTHING that moves through, even in a major siege... provided you build it correctly, and you make sure that you autoforbid EVERYTHING, both in there, and outside the fortress. Otherwise you'll hit your own dwarves.

Yes, and it's yours and BFEL's brain child! Ain't you proud?  :P
I think I would be if I'd actually put some effort into Necrothreat II. lol    Instead, I just feel kind of bad that I didn't.   You guys get full credit for this epic mess, I'm not going to steal any of it. :P

Oh, and here's a song I wrote a while back which I now find suits NAV down to the ground  :P

To the Bottle!

To the bottle, me lads, to the bottle!
Let’s drown our woe and raise our glass
To Old Armok, our Lord of Blood!
Drown the Woe! Down you go!

Your beard is bushy when you drink,
With tassels spreading down like silk!
A beardless elf enters the room,
And shows shaven chin to you.

What to do? What to do? An elf he is!
We’ll burn his wood, the tree-sworn monk,
And sow his land with salt and brine-
His house we’ll burn with beer we’ve drunk!

To the bottle, me lads, to the bottle!
Let’s drown our woe and raise our glass
To Old Armok, our Lord of Blood!
Drown the Woe! Down you go!

The magma rises in the deep,
It fills the halls while we yet sleep.
The smell of burning drifts on up
And seeps around my drinking cup.

Release the sea, quench its thirst.
Rise the steam, do your worst.
Boil and kill, maim and steal,
For we are Dwarves, and made of steel!

To the bottle, me lads, to the bottle!
Let’s drown our woe and raise our glass
To Old Armok, our Lord of Blood!
Drown the Woe! Down you go!

In the deeps a beast comes fast
And kills our dwarves with misty blast.
Laugh and cheer, then sober jeer
As Beast sheds a single pain filled tear…

So watch it cry, then help it die!
Give it booze, a drunken beast,
Feed it high with malty yeast.
Then give it light, a !!torch!! so bright….

To the bottle, me lads, to the bottle!
Let’s drown our woe and raise our glass
To Old Armok, our Lord of Blood!
Drown the Woe! Down you go!

The booze is gone, our revels done,
We go to work with the rising sun.
We mine and hew, we work all day.
But then the night comes, and so we say…

Open the barrels, the booze and the beer,
Go have a laugh filled with good cheer.
Remember times of Dwaven lore,
Then pick up an axe and go to war!

To the battle, me lads, to the battle!
Let’s drown our ire and raise our axe
To Old Armok, our Lord of Blood!
Drown the Foe! Down you go!

Seriously, we need a deep-voiced scotsman to sing that for us. That's awesome.

Heh. Thanks.

I'd sing it, given that a lot of my blood is Scottish and I can see Scotland on a clear day, and my voice is reasonably deep. However, I'm a terrible singer, so nope  :P

I can't even read poetry I write out loud without people covering their ears-understandably!

But, hey. Bound to be more Scotsmen out there. Or at least deep voiced singers.

I know you're probably sick of me....eh...kinda Necroing Necrothreat  :P But oh well.

The stars on high are sentinels,
The ground is bloody turf,
The sky above is stretching on,
O’erlooking mournful earth.
Our heads are raised in deathlessness,
A creed that we desire
To keep a-beat within our chests,
Beside our living fire.

The stars on high are blocked from view
By spreading darkling ruin
Which thrusts its points into the air
Where dead in piles are strewn.
The ground below is rock and mud,
The grass above is burned,
The land about is covered in
The sores of earth that’s churned.

There swells the sea of magma’s wrath,
There dwell the dead that walk;
In blighted vale and dale they are,
These beasts that scorn the rock
That Forumites have wracked and hewn
In craft, in wall, in lock.
The ruins cry tears of mortar’s woe
For life the dead have mocked.

Oh, it came apart one summer’s day
When in the sky the sun
Was baleful, big and roundly seen
From night to fleeting run.
The dead in legion’s marched about,
The magma mocked what was;
For in its glow the sun was killed,
In doing what it does.

And Sprin the Doctor laughed in glee,
In swelling, bursting mirth,
To see the flame that wreathed the land
And razed the budding turf.
He clapped, he danced,
He spun around, his heels he clacked,
His eyes agleam with light,
His form with laughter wracked.

Now up, and up the towers stretch
Beyond our mortal sight.
But down on earth where death is sown,
There lives no thing but blight.
The Mad Destroyer’s left this place,
His hands with blood are wet,
But still brood walls and towers high,
Of fairest Necrothreat.

Oh, and I wanted to thank all you people! You're helping me get into university  :P
Now I can show I have an interest in poetry/writing. How? *Gives a shed load of poetry and stories*

  How do you do it?

  Also, am still working on that piece I was drawing. Delay's due to Spring cleaning=Disorganization & Chaos.

 I see what you did there.

Ninja'd: I think it was a pun on his writing of epics?

Double Ninja'd: it wasn't?!

I was thinking of passing it off as something witty.

Damn my sticking to the truth!

As per always, I've added your poem to the OP, Th4DwArfY1. It's gotten to the stunning 11 poems so far.

Sorry about the delay on the ending story. I've been having to study for a really important thing and have a ton of other work. I'll try to finish it sometime next week.

Bravo!

I can almost see written, propaganda-like, on the poster: "Necrothreat! Where the un-dead meet death!"
