Those are some of those words I hate.  "Dying" just looks so wrong, even though it's correct.  Darn you language for not bending to my aesthetic sensibilities!

As far as taglines, here's a few that represent where I have the most Fun:

Dwarf Fortress: Fight the dragon? [INDIV_CONTROLLABLE] I am the dragon!

Dwarf Fortress: Or Goblin Fortress. Or Kobold Camp. Or Human City. Or Lizardman Cavern. Or Antman Hive. Or...

Dwarf Fortress: Mod new plant, embark with purring maggots.

And for good measure:

Dwarf Fortress: ...ere the leopards get hungry.

Dwarf Fortress: A game with a lot of character.

Carpe diem.

That's the tunnel to the caverns... we don't go there anymore.

Dwarf Fortress: The Mordor construction kit.

Dwarf Fotress: Death is the only way in.

Dwarf Fortress: The things we do with unicorns would make your litle sister consider genocide.

Dwarf Fortress: We don't smelt ore, we smelt goblins. And elves, even though that doesn't yield anything usefull.

Mordor was actually a dungeon crawler with randomly generated dungeons, so this would be a scary amount of recursion. Unique feature: to resurrect a fallen adventurer, you'd make a new one and go recover the corpse, then drag it back to the surface, where a necromantic temple offered services for a fee.

On Topic:
Dwarf Fortress: Hell? Yeah.

I haven't actually tried in .31 yet, but I assume it works pretty much the same as before - if you add the [INDIV_CONTROLLABLE] tag to the [CREATURE:DRAGON] entry in the raws (creature_standard), you can "Play Now!" as a dragon in Adventure mode.  Tip - add [CANOPENDOORS] before you do that, or you'll be trapped if you start inside a closed building.  (Assuming [CANOPENDOORS] is still a valid tag.  Haven't yet investigated.)

Histories of Avarice and Perseverance.

Point taken. I think this thread is more about making up funny catch lines.

Also :
Veni, Vidi, Pompeii.
This one is made of win.
