That's absurdly dwarven of you, I'm so proud to be here to see it.

"the old wizard struggled to remember the sequence of his combination lock."
I like little normalizing details like this.

"immune to normal forms of violence" is also a cool phrase. Seems a bit of K6BD.

Regarding the analysis, it might be cool to get a bit of a setting document, for RPG purposes.

I love Threetoe's stories. I always look forward to them!--They're insightful, interesting, memorable, and deep.

THANK YOU!!!

Zach, you're really VERY talented! Have you ever thought of writing, on a professional level? I'd call your stories here already at least semi-professional, as it is. I think that you could easily write a book, or an anthology, or even just publish the stories here, that you've already written.

It would be very nice to have them, in book-form. I'd buy that book! And, it might bring more people into Dwarf Fortress, if your writing had a wider circulation. I love that they're free, in digital form--don't get me wrong--but, to me, physical books are special. The look of them, the ease of reading, the feel, even the smell of books--as weird as that sounds--they all add to the experience.

Plus, like I said, you've really got the chops to write professionally, and I think you'd find a welcoming audience.
