You ought cover them partially with grates so the ambient glow can light your resort.

And you really should spend some time on insuring you have plenty of mood-worthy goods lying around.

I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

I fully intend to buy a crap-ton of random items from the next trader that visits for that very purpose

Assuming they make it all the way to the fort.

Also, if you still have any unnamed, non-champion dwarves, could you make one of them Oliolli III? You did Mego three times...

You all turned Swordthunders into a bastion of madness that seems to warp in on itself under its own hatred of sanity.  I'm so happy!

For once we had a successful mood.  And a very weird artifact as a result


It's worth 1,892,400 dorfBucks, if anyone's interested.

I do, but I'm steadily running out of generically-named dwarves

Why do I get the feeling I've truly ruined the mystery, danger and excitement of Hell for everyone in favour of a chuckle at building a resort town in it?

Ruined the mystery? Loss of danger and excitement? Thats such an understatement coming from one such as you, because of what you've done and many others, the Great Toad will have to make Hell more FUN in future versions!

My good man, you have invested in a wonderful property that pays back tenfold! You should be happy that your dwarves are enjoying themselves in Hell!

And on a side note, I should've specified my gender as a dwarf...Oh well. If its alright, can you not kill my little dwarfette intentionally? Wait, the nobles will handle it. O no...



And back on topic, it seems that you made a real nice bet over a game of Red vs Blue with the demons, you dealt with the devil and now have an empire!

Any chance that you may want to leave a small gap in your walls to let demons trickle in only to be slaughtered by your military? You know, to show them who conquered hell?


edit: It just hit me, isn't this eligible for a spot in the Hall of Legends?

I like to think of it as dealing with the devil and winning the deed to his property.

Oh, and there's a disproportionately large number of female dwarves in the fortress.  What you get is what there is, sorry.

edit:  If someone wants to nominate the Dwarven Checkerboard and me sealing off the walls of hell, go right for it.

I wouldn't call this discouraging.  We've seen what hell has to offer, and we've seen someone beat it.  Now we're going to waltz into a hollow spire and get our collective asses kicked.  Then we'll do it again, and only get our asses smacked.  And then again, and we'll defeat the demons even as our last dwarf goes insane.  Then we'll make our way into the pits themselves.  And through the process, we shall grow stronger, and more prepared for the horrors that Toady unleashes with every new release.

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.  What does kill is makes us unstopable.

And down there you'll find my dwarven avatar sitting on an adamantine throne, eating strawberries and asking "what kept you?"
