The time my modded flyer team (two, but I sorta hung back and watched the other guy) took on an army of cave swallow men in the arena, and the first move it made? Fly up, fly over, and spin kick one into the magma below.

That one then proceeded to single handedly slaughter the entire (They started off with equal skills, and the swallow men had better euipment, but the modded ones are basically silver collossi with the flier tag) Army of swallow men. His sword wouldn't work so he started punching and kicking them to death. Usually causing them to fly all the way to the edge of the arena and lay there stunned.

I knew I'd made them tough... but not that tough...

The least you could have done was throw down some booze and seasoning. Abyssal Monsters that Creatures of the Light Know Not Of aren't savages, y'know. Sharing's caring.

I am still getting used to the game and while traveling back from a nasty fight against a Minotaur, I was ambushed in the night by a bunch of harpies and ogres. I killed what I thought was all of them, then went back to sleep only to be awoken by more harpies and ogres. This went on for 3 or 4 cycles before I realized that two harpies were flying 3 z-levels above me. Not able to hit them by my normal means of attack, I knapped a rock, throw it at one and managed to cut it's wing off, sending it Earthbound until it hit the ground, whereupon it exploded all over me. The other harpy then ran away like a bat out of Hell allowing me to once again rest for the night.

Unless you plan on playing something with me, don't friend me on Steam. I try to keep the list as small as possible and only with people I know IRL or want to play a game.

What the hell...? That's just... freaky.



Anyways, my own WTF moment was when I was facing someone with a copper scimitar, and I had a silver longsword. I whacked him with the flat of my blade, and it bruised the skin. The whole ordeal went down like this:

You slap The Swordsman in the head with the flat of your silver longsword, bruising the skin!
The Swordsman strikes You in the head with the pommel of his copper scimitar, bruising the muscle, jamming the skull through the brain and tearing the brain!
You have been knocked unconsious!
You have been struck down.

WTF. I thought that blunt attacks for a silver sword would be as effective as they would be from a normal attack from a blunt item. Guess what? APPARENTLY NOT.

That's actually a pretty common occurrence.

I had near-maxed out skills, had slain minotaurs, demons and a dragon without using a shield. Then a horse one-shotted me. This isn't the first time this has happened. Screw wolves, horses are the real foe of Dwarf Fortress.

I carved a path of bloody carnage to assassinate the king of the dusk elf empire. When I got there I snuck inside his chambers, revealed myself and prepared to fight him. First shot I whack him in the head with my pommel and knock him out. I find it so funny that instead of killing him I take all of his clothes cut off his phallus and leave.

Once again, this occurrence is more common in Dwarf Fortress than it may seem.

I know it's fairly common but I killed 180+ people in his civilization before I went after him. I was kind of hoping for something a bit more substantial than a sucker punch and penis theft.

Probably when a i killed a bunch of ambushers by picking up rough rocks and pelting them till their bones broke. Despite the fact these same ambushers killed 12 or so of my "guards".

The most recent wtf moment i had was a cave, the entrance itself was huge then the cave was bigger, and what was in this might cave? A single crocodile and a bunch of wooden figurines. Biggest anti-climax ever

WTF. I thought that blunt attacks for a silver sword would be as effective as they would be from a normal attack from a blunt item. Guess what? APPARENTLY NOT.

actually i am more commonly killed by weak animals than powerful opponents.

also slap attacks are seemingly weaker than a pommel strike. my guess, a slap just has the weight of the blade, a pommel strike is like a punching somebody while you have a dumbbell in your hand.

i figured out what happened by looking at exported combat announcements. apparently the goat kept kicking people and knocking them unconscious which led to the turkey gobblers slowly killing them.
still i consider that the worst way ever to die.
