I'm about to start learning how to play Dwarf Fortress again!

I'm afraid I'm going to turn into a neckbeard!

Yeah, the game is one of those simple looking roguelikes, but it has a metric fuck-tonne of details. So, you'll get these stories where you just get a few lines of text telling you what's going on, but the way the stories are told just shows that the game brings out the imagination in you.

What's also great is that [strike]if[/strike] when your fortress has to be abandoned due to raiding parties/floods/cave-ins/demons, you can actually visit that fortress in an adventuring mode included with the game, so you get to look at all the depraved shit your dwarven craftsmen made.

If/when you turn into a neckbeard, you should join my beard growing contest!


AKA Ass-Bandit
I'm already growing a goatee.

And no, I don't want to shave it.
So I just spent roughly 10 - 20 minutes watching a bunch of dwarf sprites building a bunch of bedrooms for some migrants to my tutorial fortress.

So, no more Borderlands and other such games for me, my path to neckbeardom has begun!

I've never heard of this before, you cruel, cruel man.

This game is going to consume me. :shake:

I stabbed a Cheetah some 20 odd times with a copper spear before realizing I was a woman, and then gave into starvation. :nod:
