!!Fun!! Caves
« on: May 03, 2016, 07:50:18 pm »

Add small caves underground, maybe surrounded by a thin layer of adamantine.
When the dorfs mine through, display a pop-up saying something like the old HFS message: "You have dug too greedily."
Then have a forgotten beast inside.
To make it more of a Mines of Moria thing, put some parameters on the types of forgotten beasts that can spawn. For example, no liquid or gas beasts - that doesn't fit the idea of an ancient beast locked away in the heart of the earth.

Suggestions are helpful!

...isn't this basically what hell is, with slightly different flavor? You're suggesting that he re-do what he already removed after 40d. No. If he wanted it, he wouldn't have removed it.

Actually, this is pretty much what still exists.

I honestly am more inclined to believe this is a sockpuppet performing some trolling. If someone knows about the HFS, then they almost certainly already know it includes "digging too greedy and too deep" and that it already IS a Moria reference.

In the off-chance that I'm wrong, however, AdeptusEldritchus, you're talking about unmarked spoilers. Please at least spoiler your comments or mention in the thread title that you are discussing spoilers.

Well, we have large infinite caves. He wants small finite caves. But meh, same difference.

I apologize. I've usually lost before I hit the HFS, so I didn't really know what to expect.

SPOILERS like never before

Helmacon, are you aware that we are discussing hell? We do not have any small, finite hellcaves. We used to. We also used to have demonic fortresses - gone. Now we have vaults, which technically do not contain demons (they're more like angels).
