Once I had particularly fun experience in adventure play. It was first time ever I visited a dark fortress, I went there to slay the horrible "chinchilla monster", didn't know what to expect back then. It had web attacks, so I didn't manage to give one single hit.

Then the screen was there for a minute or so, and I was like, hey, what's happening? Okay, I'm webbed, unconscious, but why nothing's happenin'? Then I (finally) got a message, that I am deceased. I looked at the log.

You know what was happening? The terrifying master, nearly maxed all combat skills, was hitting me with some copper earring. Over and over. It took it few days, but he managed to beat me with copper earring.

Now I am thinking of an idea... A strategy fighting goblin masters. Before they're hostile and you can still talk to them, give 'em earrings. If my assumption is true, they'll forget they have giant feet, fists and jaws, and beat you with earring. Must test someday.

This is why I love DF. Freakin' fun.

I've had quite a bit of experience with this. It usually goes one of two ways:
1. The master beats you with the earring until the earring breaks. Now you're back at square one, except now you're tired from fighting.
2. You manage to deal some damage to the master. Eventually its arms are disabled and it drops the earring. Then it bites your head off.

And that's not even getting into the masters that have powerful attacks which don't require the direct use of limbs or jaws, such as toxins, poisonous gas, fire-breathing, etc.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

Doing an adventure run that was RP-focused instead of "lol kill everything", I was walking through a village when this dude attacked me.



And then I saw lots more zombies like him, so I decided to run because I was a peasant.

So, looking at that missing organ list... What is left before it becomes a human axeman skeleton?

He's close to being a skeleton.

My most embarassing death was the time I ended up being clawed to death by a wingless owl corpse.
It was hilarious.

No more shields for me as an alligator bit my hand while I was swimming across a river and tore a motor nerve.

You still have one hand, right? Just draw whatever weapon you're using, then "r"emove the shield-- it'll wind up wielded, in the same hand as your weapon!

My peach faced lovebird woman is mortally wounded by a turkey gobbler, still alive though
This adventurer was killed by a bogeyman

Next adventurer, a cardinallwoman performer who I retired due to getting lost in caves, has recently been recontrolled by me, and found her way back to the fort. Lolor Datanan, a dwarf scholar is retching despite not having any damage, and weare underground, in fact our group of performers hasn't managed to leave the underground as of yet. Our group of 6, called Climactic Ruthlessness, is wandering the fort, trying to find a way to the surface

Huh, I figured out a trick for infinite backpack space. You have your hands full when you pick up an object, so you automatically put it in whatever available container, even if it doesn't fit.

I often use this to just pick items, as equipping, picking up, then unequipping is faster than picking the thing up then putting it in backpack.
