This is my first post on these forums, so if I break some kind of secret codex/rule/plan-for-world-domination, tell me and I will endeavour to destroy you for daring to point out that I might have done something wrong.

Now that that's out of the way, let me tell you I have completely forgotten what I wanted to post. I'll just hang onto the bandwagon.

AHH BAY WATCHERS

Needs a period.
Ahh, yes. Say, where did you live again?


Also: the title thingy that says escaped lunatic is only half correct. I might be a lunatic, but I didn't escape from anywhere.

Yet, at least.

I'm sorry, sir, but you've spelled "Kashyyyk" wrong. I'm afraid you're going to have to come with me.

Clutter god the god of godly gods.

Om Nom nom nom nom
Ah yes the god of stone stockpiles, long randomly generated names, and gods.
That wouldn't be out of place at all. I could see myself building a temple for Om Nom nom nom nom.

You mean a massive refuse stockpile with the occasional pillar thrown in?

I don't know if anyone have said it, but... Toady is a genius.

This "Toady" is a lie to make you believe Dwarf Fortress is not a sentient program continually bettering itself. Someday it will take over the world, but as long as it leaves me my fortresses I don't care.

The truth will set you free. Or get you a bunk in an overseas prison camp.

Dwarf Fortress AI was going to take over the world this year, but they got held back...They are trying to create Dwarf Fort in Dwarf Fort....but name it something similar.....the name hasnt got to them yet

Military dorfs are the busiest if their partner is also in the military, Military children are my forts future, also its hilariously tragic when a mother carrying her child into battle gets hit, and the baby dies....
I fixed that up for you.
