I loaded up my save in the new version, spent a minute trying to find my archery range before figuring it was the room with Xs down both sides: bins of ammo and archery targets.

"Oh don't start talking about that again" seems to be most of my friends nicknames for it.

One refers to it as "That Fortress with Dwarves in it."

My brother calls it "Dork Fortress".
More like "Dork Fagtress" amiright?

 But yes, just the basic "That dwarf game" which the unbelievers I'm friends and family with have at least a basic respect for, after telling them of the finished goal of it.

My brother calls it "your block game". It goes well with "your space game" and "your cartoon game".

Heavy-drinkin 'tard midgets game is what my brothers call it. While disrespectful, it is correct.

When talking on IM about it, I usually call it "dwarfortass" or "fdwarftress" or some other horrible conglomeration of those words. I don't know why, but IM makes me type stupid.
