A kobold is hidden away here
« on: April 30, 2009, 11:26:21 pm »

What does this mean??? I got it during a siege

Of course, why else would dwarves risk life and limb to retrive one sock during a full scale siege onslaught.
The depressing thing is that they quite often lose life and limb(s) in the process.

I haven't either. Keep us updated. The kobolds seem to be getting smarter.

where was it found? in the loo"k" menu? or where announcements usually are?

if in the loo"k" menu, itll be what replaces "kobold" when you hover over a hidden 'bold square.

I'm guessing this is the case, maybe it's another Easter Egg sorta thing.

This is Dwarf Fortress, a masterly crafted game. It is adorned with bands of epic, and is studded with spikes of awesome. On the game is an image of a toad and many dwarves. The dwarves are worshipping the toad. The toad is laughing. The dwarves are dying.

Nah, it's there. I make it all the time. I think the Easter egg is old. If I remember right, Toady used to think Electrum was made up, until he did some real research on it. He just left the Easter egg in the code even after Electrum took its rightful place as an alloy.
