I'm in the habit of naming one of the dwarves after me. Right now I'm chilling on a bed made out of gold opal with obsidian spikes

That's not so bad just a little annoyance when you roll over, you want really uncomfortable? Try sleeping in this.

Spikey bed

Oooops sorry bout the big image changed to link.

No, only a cut NO LINKING FROM THIS HOST can be used for encrusting.  A large NO LINKING FROM THIS HOST cannot. 


On a completely unrelated note, imageshack.us is a free image host, which will automatically convert bmps into pngs when it uploads, allows hotlinking, and has automatic thumbnailing.  I highly recommend it.

Menaced with spikes of leather? How the hell would you get leather spikes?
You've apparently not been playing Fortress Mode for long... a dwarf on the bring of insanity can turn anything (yes, anything) into menacing spikes.

Yes - I've had an artifact that menaced with spikes of pig tail cloth.

One of my first artifacts was a pig tail cap that menaced with spikes of pig tail cloth. I decided it was meant to be a jester's cap, and interpreted it as maybe having studs of brass for bells.

This is a fox skull helmet. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It menaces with spikes of fox bone and is encircled with bands of fox leather. This item is haunted by the ghost of Alfador Angrorung the fox.

In order for it to include any tiny brass bells, the loony who made it would have had to pinch at least ten metal bars from your stockpiles, in addition to the cloth ;)

One of mine has just knocked out a pretty face-veil (yes, a pig-tail-face-veil) that references some of the other artifacts my fortress has seen: there's an image of a pig tail shirt (in pig tail), a pig tail dress (in pig tail), and "a diorite mechanisms" (in... diorite. What the hell?!)
...the concept of artistic interpretation is clearly lost on this dwarf.

Obviously what's really on the veil is a dwarf wearing a pigtail dress, veil, and shirt, who moves in a lifelike manner due to a complicated internal mechanism.

Words cannot express how much I laughed at this yet at the same time so disapointed by it.

If you look at Waffleimages homepage it says "Uploaded images will not work unless posted on the Something Awful Forums."

My best artifact was an Aluminum battle axe worth 120000 something.

That kind of deductive reasoning is undorfy!
You know what you have to do.

Amalenir Lorbam Izkil, "Teachbeguiled the Standards of Intricacy".

Behold! I have encrusted my masterpiece with cassiterite, decorated it with mountain goat bone, and encircled it with bands of giant cave spider silk and iron! It is made from the finest giant cave spider silk cloth dyed midnight blue, menacing with spikes of silk. On it I have made the image of Litast Oarvoice the dwarf in silk, relating to his settling of Echowails the Iron-Vice of Torment in the late autumn of 201. Upon it is an image of itself in emerald.

Oh, what is it?

Its a pair of boxers.

I should probably have my head checked, because I find myself in complete agreement with Nikov.

*THONGZ!*
The best part is the gypsum pixies.  "LOOK AT MY FAIRY CODPIECE! LOOK!" ;D

My current fort has a Native Aluminum hatch cover worth 163,200.  Of course, it also has a tower-cap chest worth only 6000 :-\

I have no leather in the whole fortress, and my hauler/leatherworker goes fey...
I take the pains of sending a squad to hunt a camel, set up a butcher/tanner...
He crosses all the map to fetch the piece of tanned leather...
He starts working furiously in a leatherworker workshop permanently immersed in a miasma cloud...

He produces:

Code: [Select]
Kebon Rafum, The Odor of Coincidences, a two-humped camel leather thong
::)
