AAAGH, dwarf fortress sounds like such a great, potentially epic game

But I'm too much of a lazy fuck to start :( I even have it on my computer, but the amount of stuff is too overwhelming.

Mustavalkonen väritys muutamalla ovelalla photari brushilla + color layeri

noin yleisesti

Oikea määrä inspiraatiota niin onnistuu joskus pienessäkin ajassa.

Ah. Dorf Fortress. Perhaps the most brutally violent game to ever come out, even despite the fact that it runs on ASCII graphics.

Yes.

Basically any creature can show up zombified or skeletal in dwarf fortress. Undead whales and sharks are known to be very devastating since they tend to crawl on land due to not needing to breathe.

The history of dwarves is the history of inexplicable heroes fighting even less explicable circumstances, memorialized in art so far removed from comprehensibility it transcends into marvel.

Hmph. Everyone knows the most noble way for a dorf to die is to be slain by a half-mad artificer and made into a nice pair of shoes or a shield.

But this way is acceptable, also. Nice picture.
