If detailed reproduction becomes a thing, then as an obvious extension bards in worldgen should be able to write erotic literature.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

When you retire or save-quit, you get a list of all those in your fortress which have died or been injured and its compared with what a 'good player' should have gotten in similar circumstances (enemeies encountered vs minerals etc). This list is posted and updated online. Any particularly bad player is highlighted and shamed.

Dwarf fortress moves over to an invented runic language. This language is proceedually generated for each civ and world. Everything is in this language.

Procedurally-generated runes would actually be really awesome, though ideally there would be a translation available.

RNG then leads to only one translation existing in the world, currently stored in a roc's nest. After retrieving the translation, you discover you cannot read it due to the fact it was written by a kobold shortly before the roc paid a visit to its cave. Thus begins your quest to find a translation for the translation.

Kobolds should compose works, and these should be absolute gibberish, yet still somehow convey their meaning to the viewer. Or not, it's funnier if you can't tell wether a poem concerns the seasons or that time a roc visited the kobold cave and only some of them died instead of all of them.

Kobold stories are written in crude pictograms.  So crude, even the game doesn't understand them.

"This is a llama parchment scroll.  On the item are kobold pictograms.  First is...um...a dragon?  Or, like, an eggplant, maybe?  The second one's definitely a sword and shield.  Unless it's actually a tomato.... And that there's either a tall crown or a stubby celery stalk.  So, it's most likely describing either an epic tale or some kinda recipe.  Either way, it's utter shite."

Every single civilization starts at this level and has to evolve over time. Different races make progress at different speeds:
*Dwarves and goblins - 1.5x speed
*Humans - 1x speed
*Elves - 0.85x speed
*Kobolds -0.001x speed

If a world is old enough, words describing stuff like computers or chemistry might appear.

This actually sounds good, though I think animalmen might be able to be added

Female birds can enter strange moods, requiering specific seeds to be supplied. If the mood fails, they go berserk. If the mood succeeds, a forgotten beast egg is laid and any future eggs laid by the bird are ☼eggs☼, which hatch into an entirely new procgen bird species.

[cracking noises] "SKWONK!"
"So that's where they come from!"
Your fortress has crumbled to its end

But also, procgen birds raises the possibility for you to have an actual, literal Golden Goose.

Pretty sure there's already at least one Pokémon mod out there, and phoenixes are included in quite a few mods. A golden goose could presumably be modded as well (though it might take a bit of work).

Kobolds advance as fast as whatever race they're stealing shit from.
