If Armok Was In Dwarf Fortress How Could We Offend Him?
« on: January 13, 2021, 05:04:12 pm »

Like, I don't know. Killing Dwarfs in they're sleep as a dwarf since dwarf killing other dwarf is forbidden and dwarfs being "chosen race" in Dwarf Fortress makes sense. Does he see Dwarfs being killed from above or can we hide it by doing it inside fortresses? That would be so boring for him.

Being friendly to elves, goblins, and humans, for a start should offend Armok.

Creating a boring fort where no blood is ever shed.

Abandoning your fortress, most likely. Especially in the face of something you couldn't possibly recover from. Mega tantrum spiral? About to get murdered by the clown car? A goblin siege on the horizon and you accidentally disassembled the lever to your drawbridge, and you chicken out and flee without letting blood be spilled? That would make the old man mad, I think. Face your problems like a real dwarf.

Armok is the third word in the title of the game this forum is mostly about. It stands for ”arm_ok”, a variable used by the brothers Adams in earlier game to check whether a character still had its limbs attached.

Of course, roleplaying is fun regardless of what Armok really is. What about an altar? The wiki has some ideas for how to do one.

Armok is unconcerned by all of these things. Armok will always get what he wants in the end, regardless of your actions. It would be pure folly to assume you could do anything which he notes as anything other than mildly amusing.

Generating a world without HFS seems like something Armok would frown upon...
Also hating kobolds. They are blessed by Him with special insight, which is why they speak in tongues.

If Armok didn't want kobolds killed, then why are they full of blood?

Ok, so whenever killing kobolds is offending him or not is a subjective statement.

Armok is very finicky, sometimes he's offended by kobolds dying other times he's pleased.
