You are all monsters.
« on: October 16, 2010, 07:25:15 am »

I've been reading. I've been reading as if this was real life, and we are all managers of dwarven colonies.
(Omnipresent will-o-teh-dwarves managers)

"I've been keeping some puppies in cages so they can't be adopted, and I can slaughter them."
The same thing with kittens. Other furry animals even. Not even the ugly ones, like cows.

You are all sociopaths.

Especially the trash compactor drawbridge maneuvers, regarding immigrants.
Burning people alive to save resources. That's not the worst, moders, who burn
people alive to garner resources. Baby bones. Baby Bones.

The mayor just wants some leather hats. Give him the hats, Jesus.
  • He need not be drowned, or burned, or both at the same time.
  • Fall down large pit and then drowned and burned.
  • Impaled as well?
  • *Noble bones are worth the same as baby bones*

Are there any others affected in an emotional manner by these atrocities? Please, let your voice be heard.

Yes, we are.

If you don't like it, don't go onto the forums.

That's the great thing about this forum. We can derail any discussion into any other topic.
It's not an embark so much as seven dwarves having a simultaneous strange mood and going off to build an artifact fortress that menaces with spikes of awesome and hanging rings of death.

Hmm. That's either someone really failing at trolling (hopefully not, since it's just pitiful) or someone weak-willed playing DF for their first time.

I'm going to do with the second option - Macalano, nobody's forcing you to kill nobles, puppies, or such. You can play just as you want to, but this game DOES have cruelity potential, and you must understand that if it's possible, it's a small tradition here to try it at least once.

So, yeah. Don't like it, don't do it, even better, don't like the game, feel free to delete it, it's not like you paid for it, no?

You forgot the part where we kill children with severed extremities of their parents.

Don't do that.

This game makes facists of us all. A wave of unwanted immigrants arrived, so I labelled them all, 'X' and placed them in a holding room to await execution. Not that dissimilar from WW2 death camps. Being less harsh, useless immigrants get put into hard labour and used as military cannon fodder where required.

I never kill nobles or immigrants, it's kinda fun having to deal with the problems they cause. And what is wrong with raising animals for their meat and leather this is something that happens worldwide and obviously you don't want people to adopt them.

Maybe sometimes I kill of the elf caravan, but they are only elves, noone gets hurt by it.

I don't really see why you'd have a problem with all this.

I once had an entrance that at the pull of a lever dropped anything entering into a Colosseum filled with megabeasts, goblins, and whatever else I could get in there.

One year, wave of useless migrants arrived, so I pulled the lever. One migrant happened to be an axe-dwarf. After all the other migrants died their bloody deaths, he went into a trance and cut down the entire goblin horde I had trapped in there. Then he just stood perfectly still for a while (I assume he was making some epic pose). I had dwarves drop him food and booze to keep him alive, but I didn't dare let him into the fort proper.

Entering his new home he was betrayed and dropped into an arena to die at the enjoyment of the fort-goers. If I let him out he would probably murder us all for revenge.


edit: this post seems out of place, I had started on a different note, then it evolved into this story as I was trying to show just how cruel we are to nature, but I had already written it and didn't want to re-write it somewhere else so, enjoy.

Why does that remind me of the Slap Chop Rap?

I can just see some dude with an auto-tuned voice singing "You're gonna love my Baby Bones.  Baby Bones.  B-b-b-Baby, Baby, Baby Bones....

We're not monsters. We're +Sociopathic dwarven killing machines+.

Impaling migrants is fun. As long as you keep the process nice and slow you will have fun.

Babies are fun to burn alive. Their fear soothes the sociopathic soul. It's even more fun to drown them.

Nobles are the scum of society. They deserve to be left for the forgotten beasts so the forgotten beast dust rots out their eyeballs and makes them bleed to death.
