How useful is this dictionary?

Absolutely useless.
Still useless.
COMPLETELY USELESS.

Don't forget to mention how soft skulls are and how easily they're penetrated.

There's dragon, Dwarf, !!DWARF!!, and Dwarfy, but it appears you are missing one very important thing which all of these words have in common,

"Death"

Unfortunately, that will have to wait until the next spring cleaning of this thread.....
It's only just going into Early Winter out here in the U.S.

And besides, I was going to publish the Dwarven Dictionary, with my own "true" definitions. You said this was supposed to be humorous.

Humorous, yes, a pain to the grammatical-minded, no :P

Death
N.
1. The state a living being transitions to when it ceases to live. Death usually comes to dwarves in the way of cave ins, dodging into a pool or pit, social grievances, dehydration, starvation, combustion, drowning, crushing, amputation (malicious, accidential, and sometimes intentional), headplosion, infection, blood loss, suffocation, and once in a million years old age.

This is Dwarf Fortress. Where torture, enslavement, and murder are not only tolerable hobbies, but considered dwarfdatory.

You just know you're screwed when a dwarf dies of old age.

I have never had that happen, nor will it ever happen.  Most common cause of death amongst my dwarves is 'death by accidentally remembering there is a FB there and oh crap it broke through'.

If it does, I will personally see to it that something dies. Maybe the internets. ALL SHALL FEAR MY MANY SOCKS.

Don't tell anyone that you can see their shadows. If they hear you telling anyone, if you let them know that you know of them, they will get you.

Dodging
N.
1.To move quickly to one side or out of the way. 2. To purposely launch ones self into an inescapable pit (usually full of magma) in order to narrowly escape an otherwise mundane threat, most commonly observed in military dwarves with legendary skills.

Love it... Though with the advent of Quern, now X is the only section without a word :(
