Huh. Just noticed slay the spire's creator has explicitly acknowledged the reach heaven/through violence card is a kill six billion demons reference. Apparently they're actually a fan.

... I guess it's not that outlandish, really. KSBD's pretty well known. Next thing I know it'll be oglaf references or something, somewhere odd. I still get a bit of a chuckle at the Devil Went Down to Georgia nod in one of the Avernum games...

If DF dorfs were actually alive, then it's not just unethical to hurt them deliberately, we'd now have a ethical Trolley Problem, since the same harm can come to them with you not actually doing anything, just observing. If you left the machine running as the goblins invaded and killed everyone then you're just as guilty as someone who deliberately tortured the dwarves, since you could have stopped it.

You could avoid it by not running DF at all, I suppose.

I wonder if PETD guy is originally from that "is playing DF ethical thread" that got locked a while ago.

Reach Heaven Through Violence is a card? I should play the new character some time.

Feel it pass through you. The cycle, they say.
Life, death, blood. The cycle of life. No way out.
Trapped, cornered, pained, bleeding. No choice now.
Let them see your claws. Let them see their cycle.

Yeh. Two part deal, actually. Reach heaven does some damage and shuffles through violence into your draw pile. Through violence was a 20 damage 0 cost exhaust, last I saw it. On a character that can potentially triple its damage for a turn, heh.
