Excerpt from To The Void And Back: The Saga of Deathgate and Murdermachines

Early on the Second of Hematite, year 259, two elven traders came upon the Dwarven fortress of Murdermachines. Little did they know that they were approaching a fortress infested with the blackness of the Void. The inhabitants of the fortress had been possessed, their personalities subordinated to the souls of those from Deathgate the Doom-fortress. All new migrants, sooner or later, were consumed in this manner. The two elves, however, believed that Murdermachines was just a freshly-reclaimed Dwarven fortress, eager to trade. As they approached the fortress, they attracted the menacing glare of one who is now known only as "the Void God". Unnerved, they continued on past the heavy ballistae guarding the entrance and into the fortress proper. They set up their goods in the depot and waited for a trader to come and barter with them. Unbeknownst to them, as they entered the fortress the Void God followed behind. As they were waiting in the trade depot, they were attacked. The Void God set upon them with a rage, disemboweling and then shattering the skull of the first trader. The second trader turned to run, but was overtaken by the Void God. Analysis after the fact revealed that the merchant had his left foot, right leg, left hand, and right hand severed, in addition to grievous wounds inflicted to the stomach. The two traders vanquished, the Void God returned to his position at the entrance to the fortress and waited.

Void God don't give a damn. Void God chops off all four limbs then guts you before you hit the ground like it ain't no thang.

This is a Dwarven corpse. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It is encircled with bands of pathetic and menaces with spikes of fail.

Quick, check him for rum! The bastard's probably spirited some off to his lair office, to act as pleasant refreshment as his evil scheme unfolds!

You do realize that having our military basically consist of one dorf at this time is a recipe for utter FUN right?

This fort really does sit on the event horizon of madness and catastrophe
No. I suppose there are similarities, but I'm fairly certain angry birds doesn't let me charge into a battalion of knights with a car made of circular saws.

I's not just AnimaRytak. The other squads spend pretty much all their time in the danger room or the archery range. That's where 1st squad's barracks is. Anima was closest, and it was the most...theatrical. Also, I think it bears mentioning that he didn't really go straight back up to his station. He went for a beer first.

The other dwarves could probably defend the fortress in the event of a siege consider there all mostly axe lords.
But the Void God could single handedly slaughter a voidspawn war battalion without a single scratch.

Once a military is properly outfitted and trained, Void God can abandon his guardpost and reside at the secret temple section, locked from inside. Others dwarves are to bring sacrifices (booze, food and prisoners) for him.

Any avatar of God should know when to leave mortals up to their destiny.

I just saw a guy with two broken legs push a minecart with a corpse in it. Yeah.

We hope he can slaughter a voidspawn war battalion without a single scratch, because the Void God being turned would probably be a disaster on the scale of Holistic Detective.

I am amused.  The first thing the Void God did was knock his sock off.  At the thigh.

The closest thing we have to what some call 'allies' gets slaughtered in front of our gates. Unfortunately they don't transform into mindless beasts, trying to kill us.
Today is a sad day.

Socks and sandals... the Void God does not approve of the elf's fashion choice.
