Head pulled off by a goat? You’re playing Dwarf Fortress!
One of the best things about Dwarf Fortress is the way it lets people tell stories. Fortresses rise and fall on a mis-placed lever, a dwarf accidentally dropping a baby into a well can lead to massive civil works and then emo-death spirals see manic dwarfs bashing each other to death and making fine leather skirts out of each other’s skin.
The good news is that despite the bugs in the just-released version the potential for telling stories is now even greater than before. Take the case of the dwarf whose head was ripped off by a skeletal goat, or the adventure-mode player who stabbed an NPC guard to death with the crossbow bolt that was lodged in the player’s chest.
I can’t wait to play this some more!
