« on: June 02, 2017, 01:02:38 pm »


How did they find out about every building in this world?

Both the fact that the player is Armok and the fact that if a dwarven caravan sees buildings in the distance they'll notice that that's not the land they'd want to settle in, because it's alredy settled.

My second turn's unnoficial goal was to turn everyone into vampires, and it backfired so bad, I ended up making the fort a more efficient, safer and friendlier place.
Apparently they evolved a taste for everything I love and care about

TBH, in my view Toady is Armok.  The players are more or less his prophets or something along that sort of mythological line.

The computer creates the world. Your CPU is Armok. You're merely carrying out his will.

Elves do it in trees. Humans do it in wooden structures. Dwarves? Dwarves do it underground. With magma.

That's because Dwarf Fortress is in essence a god game (see : Black and White, Populous)

The *player* has that sight. Not the dwarves themselves.

And that "player = Armok" seems like heinous blasphemy to me. Clearly there needs to be more sacrifices to Armok.

How about the fact that those are mostly men pretending to be women pretending to be men?

FYI, that's from Monty Pyton's Life of Brian.  I can't recommend that one enough.
