Dwarven hobby's
« on: August 17, 2008, 03:05:43 pm »

I just made a new nanofortress to make trade and tranquille life for them. but after i a found a really dwarfy hobby for my dwarfes:
there were roaming many [animal]man in the map becouse i use a modpacks option wich make them, they are more dangereuse and not temable. so i just caucgth them, but their stockpill around a cage and i try to put them in the middle cage (for later arena use) so some numbers:
2 page alredy captured
4 named (from wich 3 in the cage)
8 dwarfs lost for this hobby(the bigger rampage was a wollen mamutman how killed 3 or 4 and he was so strong that he go througth 3 stonfall cage)

considered that i don't have a strong military all i can make is cage traps at the exit of the caging zone but it is funny. i think my dwarfs likes it ... they civilisation worships a hydra more then their gods so it must be their hobby to mass with dangereux animals

so anyone a comment on this or other dwarfish hobbys to post?

You are thinking of a zoo- a great alternative to sculpture gardens.

Also, do you come from a non-english speaking country, or have a keyboard with small buttons?

Honestly, it's okay if you do not understand English- it is one of the most poorly designed, jury-rigged together with bubble gum and wire languages around.

Also, I tried to learn Spanish once, I know how you feel. I'll show you where I'll shove your pronouns

I took a course on the history of the english language last year at uni. The professor described english as "the schizophrenic language."

That'w shwat happens when your language is 28% latin, 28% french, 28% german(ic) and 16% everything else.

I don't recall whose this was, but it wasn't mine.

English doesn't 'borrow' words from other languages.  English follows strange languages into dark alleys, hits them over the head, and rummages through their pockets for new vocabulary.

There's a quote, I may be misremembering it, but it goes something like:  English doesn't borrow words, it corners other languages in dark alleys and beats them up for loose vocabulary.
