Beengus, nobody
« on: July 01, 2023, 10:48:30 pm »

Beengus was a Kobold.  In 753, carrying only a dagger, Beengus tried to sneak past 10 of my steel-armed-and-armored guardsdwarves and was killed instantly. 

I liked the name Beengus and looked her up in Legends only to find out she was effectively nobody.  A non-kobold.  A nothing.  A blank space in history.

Beengus was born in 683.  She was of unknown parentage.  An orphan.  She lived an event-less life.  In the summer of 752, Beengus decided to become a thief, operating in the wilds.   She had nothing and did nothing to add to history.  Except die ignominiously to a dwarf who outmatched her 100x. 

Yet she tried.  For that, I made a monument: about the best I could do:



"This is a masterful platinum statue of Beengus created by Inod Kekimlikot.  The item is a rendition of The Arena of Flickering, an image of Beengus the kobold and a sock.  Beengus is embracing the sock.  Beengus is laughing.  The image was commissioned by The Pulley of Passion, a local dwarven government."

Rest in Peace you little nobody.  Somebody remembers you now.

I don't understand, though that is about right with anything DF related.
I just hope he dies the same death that all dwarfs deserve: liver disease.

May Beengus forever rest in peace, having filled her blank space in history with the regrettable decision to sneak into a player controlled fortress.

Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, your splattered remains will land among the stars.

Gone but not forgotten. RIP in peace, Beengus. May your wife Bingus and your daughter Beangus remember you always.

Oh, Beengus. Gone but not forgotten.
