DF has only one ending:

Losing :P

It's Fun.
Not to be a smartass but one of the reasons I like DF is because when it ends, it's in a diffrent way.

"Hmm...was that bauxite or what...?"
"Nope..it wasn't bauxite"
-Everything dies to very slow moving magma.-
Etc...it's one of the things I like about the game.

When you quote, don't remove the person that actually said it :)

But yes DF have different ways of getting to the same end of Fun.

That is technically 7 more endings that DF has....

Death by magma
Death by goblin invasion
Death by goblin ambush
Death by human invasion
Death by drowning
Death by wildlife
Death by skeletal wildlife
Death by zombies
Death by fish
Death by tantrum spiral
Death from old age/no migrants
Death from berserk champion
Death from mass cave-in
Death by hidden Fun(3 versions)

And the more embarrassing

Death by elf invasion
Death by kobold raid

Don't say DF has just one ending, just because they all mean the game is over it doesn't mean it's the same ending..And even then it's not the true end, you can start a new fort..Even reclaim your old fort,

 DF doesn't need a sequel, DF is it's own sequel.

I think you missed his maybeeee.
I thought he didn't mean it like that, more a "It's a never-ending story." if you want it to be.

I was allso going to say that I may have confused what you said, but i'm to tired at this moment.
Well..this is a pointless argument..
You can end DF, but every-time is most likely going to be a different way...it's not scripted...where as Bioshock 2 is. Argh now I've forgotten the original point and everything. Time to sleep...

When I turn on the computer in the morning, DF turns on. It dosn't turn off until 2PM at night. DF is the bane of my life, like cocaine for a drug-addict. Except, much more deadly.

Plus, I just noticed I'm viewer 1337. . .that has got to be an omen.

Just to clarify, I mean that a game/world of DF can last as long as you want it to if you want, and fort 2 can be the sequel to fort 1. Just like Silent hill 1 is one story(fort), Silent hill 2 was another story(Second fort after the first ended), and then Silent hill 3 continued with the original story(Reclaimed fort 1)


So, yeah, I admit it was also late at night when I wrote that, so I might not have made/make a lot of sense.

DF forums are addicting too, making me post past midnight.

Dwarf Fortress: Losing is fun, Evil is good, and the first hit is free... Actually, all the hits are free... Dang, no wonder it's so addicting.

And, they came. My fingers tingled, my nose twitched and my toes tickled... they came around the corner, over my bridge... Into my courtyard... Onto my trade depot...

Then everything near it exploded in a cloud of blood.

Yeah, I haven't played other games much since I found Dwarf Fortress a few weeks ago.  I've still got my unfinished save of Dragon Age, which is currently in the Dwarf Fortress.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

DF eats up most of my time. It's nearly as bad as the Sims was for me about devouring time. I still play other games, when I'm frustrated with DF because my fortress exploded into an orgy of violence and death, with a sprinkling of fire and magma, but I always come back. It's almost like an abusive boyfriend sort of thing, except he's only violent when he drinks, and he only drinks when he's angry.... I lost my point somewhere in there....

I'm currently making a nice room for my legendary clerk. I always treat my legendaries with the greatest respect, giving them the best rooms and so on. Although the walls are mostly engraved with pictures of my miner starving to death after he fell down a well, so it's not too cheerful.
