and now, for multilingual taglines!

Latin:
Dwarf fort:Sola * Bona est * Mortua. (The only good * is a dead *.)

replace * with any of the following:
Elf
Cat
Kitten
Puppy
Dwarf
Carp
Elephant
Hippo
Goblin
Human
Magma (because I can.)

Magma est potestas! (Magma is power!)

German:
Meine heise liebe, meine tasse magma! "My hot love, my magma" or something like that. a slight conversion from a messed up song about coffee.

Spanish:
Yo tengo magma en los pantalones! "I have magma in my pants", or close enough. never was good with spanish.

That'd be "My hot love, my cup of magma". Which is actually even better.  ;D

Now we just need a photoshop of that "Have a nice cup of STFU"-army-guy with magma in his cup. And a dwarven beard.

thanks for catching that XD the only German I really remember are the numbers, so I was kinda guessing a little bit there. And I agree, that does make it better lol.

I'm actually kind of partial to "The most awesome mod for notepad EVER!"

But since early 2009, I have always used this when I talk about Dwarf Fortress:

"If you can't build a tower upon a sheer cliff face over which you may throw precisely one hundred and fifty-two kittens and seven stalwart dwarves to their explosive doom some fifty stories below, then brother, your game ain't much of a sandbox, is it?"

Dwarf Fortress: Blood and Iron!

Also, doesn't someone have a sig that says something like "if your sandbox doesn't let you do..."  followed by something dwarfey like casting an obsidian tower and throwing goblins off the top "then it's not much of a sandbox, is it".

I liked that one

Edit:  How the crap did I get ninja'd on that?  That's the quote, answering my question before I got done asking it

Dwarf Fort:It's all the things your Anger management and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings said would never happen.

Dwarf Fort: Just because you can't win doesn't mean you have to lose.... but you will.

Dwarf Fort: It has fluffy wamblers. Who doesn't want to play a game with FLUFFY WAMBLERS! FEEEEEP!

Dwarf Fort:Slowly turning its user community into dwarves, one tantrum spiral at a time.

I think this is where the DF-players-are-Hitler jokes go from being just jokes to still jokes but lose some of their irony.

Still. Someone has to open up a chain of McUrist's sooner or later.

Magma est potestas! (Magma is power!)

Magma auctoritas est.

Your translation is fine, but I think mine has funnier (read: more threatening) overtones.

Respect the magma. It has authority.
