It also shows that the greatest fun can be had in playing on untill your fort erupts into bloody chaos instead of quitting when something seems to go wrong. It is the pure embodyment of the motto "losing is fun".

Holy crap, i just realized how long ago this thread started.  I'm curious, though, can a fort go through a similar story in 2014?

Not unless you're using the candy canes. Curious underground structures have been removed.

Every so often I'll get back on here, answer a question or ask one of my own, and every so often I'm always drawn back to this thread. It just makes me smile whenever I read through the comments, and see the people who've complimented me on playing or more likely, my writing. I'm glad I can still, three years later, show people that Dwarf Fortress can be awesome in more ways than one. Thanks guys. <3

Had it not been revived, I might never have found it.  It was a beautiful story that epitomizes everything I love about this game and its players.

I have a 20 years-old fortress running peacefully and successfully ... dare I, also, mine too deeply and too greedily in the same way?

I HAVE BEEN SUMMONED.

*cough* but yeah seriously, I love it when I get on and see this under my 'new posts' page. This is probably my favourite thing I've ever done, and it pleases me immensely that people still read and enjoy it. Though, I was unaware that the curious structures had been removed. I thought they were just absurdly rare. Though, you could always build your own underground pyramid and THEN breach it. I always make a self-sustaining fort with a military capable of facesmashing goblins like it was their job [spoiler alert: it is.] so I have to force a failure in my forts. Once I've had my fun, I'll crack open the Nether just to see how many of the bastards I can send back to hell before I fall.

I love this game, this thread, and all of you. <3

If a DF shirt was ever made, it would be an admantine sword, with the words CLAIM THINE PRIZE under it.

From the Depths of Hell it rises once again...

Because of course it does. What is dead may never die, but rises harder and stronger.

Haha this thread needed to be necro'd, so glad I read it. I too, in the past, found a mysterious sword. Still my favorite memory of DF.

I think the curious underground structures really exemplify the essence of Dwarf Fortress itself.

Like, in most games, it would be a fitting secret reward.  Tunnel to the center of the world and fight your way through the zombie horde, and you get an ultimate weapon as a prize!

But this isn't most games, this is Dwarf Fortress.  Your reward for slaughtering the zombies is to have your fort overrun by the legions of Hell.  Enjoy!

It's definitely slathered in the DF essence. It's really kind of sad that Toady took them out. At least, I'm fairly certain I read that the underground structures were removed. It's been a while so I guess they could have been added back since then. If they have, maybe I should hunt one down. You guys could get a low budget, direct-to-DVD sequel.
