Nope.

A word meaning no. You can't unsee it. You can't deny it. Will your fortress survive? Will everyone be happy?

Awesome idea this. Maybe it can do with a bit more D-for-Dwarf-iness, but I think this will definitely be a (humorous and) helpful aid to beginners.

Armok: 5. You haz rage and you must punch things, but you haz no arms. Pray to ARMOK - Dwarf Mantra

Almost fell off my chair laughing about this one. Great practical definition of Armok. Sigged!

This is an exceptional Post, well crafted with paragraphs and encrusted with attempted punctuation, bad non-native-English-speaker glitches. May exhibit great insight and/or stupidity.

I hate English. It may be my first language, but I hate it. It doesn't make any sense.

Awkward moment when you realise your sig now contains subliminal messages about making doors, blowing stuff up and brewing melon milkshakes. Ty XP

L
Legendary:
1. What happens to a dwarf that becomes too good for his/her own good. 2. The term applied to a dwarf that you cannot bear to lose-- once lost, the player may encounter fits of depression, anger, madness or overall apathy. "Meh." is the usual response. 3. In the Military [link it], this means you have a living weapon of defensive destruction in one sense and in the other, you have one dwarf that needs to be pleased [See Tantrum Spiral].
