On the topic of a fantasy novel based on Cacame, I have certainly toyed with the idea of it. I'd just need time, as I have a ton of writing projects on my plate at the moment.

And it'd be more likely to be low fantasy (as low fantasy as a world with elves, demons, and the like can get) than high fantasy, just because I'm more of a fan of low fantasy.

Soap is the most offensive thing to elves: it requires animal tallow and lye (which is made from ash (made itself of burnt wood)).

Ooh, good point.

Is it possible to make a trade depot out of soap?

That would be as deadly to the wielder as to anyone else!  You'd sever your own arm at the first swing!  It's perfect!

Soap is a building material.  Typically I use it to make roads.

You need to make said elf leather into the most amazing work of art.  Embed it with every kind of gem you have, stud it with metals, and sew images into it.  Erect a shrine outside your fort with that in the center.  Let the elves know that you view their very skin as naught more but a medium for your dwarves to work on.

Are we going to see any more of Holy Mittens' epic writing on this?

After reading this awesome thread and the great artwork I couldn't resist water-colouring one of the pieces, by Fault:

Cacame Awemedinade, Glorious:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
I'm rather new to DF so one of the things I didn't quite get is the Legends screen... how exactly do I learn more about someone specific in my world? Let's say I want to find out who was the father/grand-father of one of my dwarves... do I need to jump to adventure mode or something?

In legends mode, you'd go into historical figures and use the string entry to enter part of the dwarf's name, probably the meaningful part like "Apebalded" or "Cryptbrains". From there, find his father, and search for him using the string entry. Keep going up the family tree like that. You can also branch off to check out the histories of other interesting people that cropped up.

It's time consuming, but as Cacame and the link in my sig prove, it can lead to awesome.

What you need to do is make it out of clear glass. Then harvest every tree on the map, seize all the Elves' crap, and offer it as a burnt offering to Cacame under the magma-belching Piranha Plant.

The petals should be either steel or adamantine.

I know the conversation has moved on a bit since then, BUT...

My favorite part of this thread so far has been Cacame chasing down horses on foot and hitting them halfway across the map during that human siege.  I know, I know.  Horses in DF aren't that fast.  Still.

You just lowered my appreciation for Bowie by about 30%. No more Youtube for you.
