Dwarf Fortress Gladiator Tournament IV on Reddit
« on: July 23, 2019, 02:40:57 am »

Better late than never:

The annual Dwarf Fortress Gladiator Tournament is live on Reddit. Unfortunately it's too late to submit a Gladiator, but it is not too late to bet on the fights.

It is also never too late to submit art relating to the tournament, that will always be appreciated. We have had a lot of it already this year, but we want more.

If you haven't already, please stop by, even if you are just going to read the stories and watch the art. Dwarf Fortress is all about the stories. The tournament hasn't started properly, yet people truly care for their favourite gladiators.

Uping this for awareness.  A wonderfully fun tournament, with so many great entries.

Sadly, two of my favorites are about to go head-to-head:
  • Comrade Bull, the revolutionary minotaur fighting to seize the means of production;
  • Fleeb Bottomist, the leechman former-doctor with a thirst for blood.

Whoever wins, Hopefully they make it all the way to finals, where they might face other favorites of mine:
  • The Bear, a bearman of unknown origin, who detests bees but lusts for honey, weilding a deadly platinum beehive.
  • Hannibal, the naked elf cannibal wielding an iron carving knife and fork
Though Hannibal did eliminate Meph's champion (the foul blendec Mephisopheles), so cheer for him with quiet shame.

why limit these tournaments to once yearly, can we get a weekly automated tournament? where we can truly stretch the combat system to its limits...

Spoken like a true volunteer to help with the organizing of such an endeavor  ;)
