I strike a lot of earth.
Thank you for the wishes, man! And of course, I extend my own wishes to all of you fellow DFers! Happy Holidays, my friends; may the season bring nothing but joy to all of you. Sincerely,
A short, sturdy creature fond of drink and industry
Oh my goodness, I can't believe I'd never seen this before! Here is a little blog called "Ask Amxu." It is a place where you ask Amxu, a goblin baby-snatcher, questions about anything! The answers and accompanying illustrations are truly !!FUN!!. I'm posting a link from the first (last) page; scroll down to the bottom and start reading!
Likin' the band, son; looks like Athens, GA actually produces something worth havin' around!
Or you'll be dying in agony alone, rather than with a partner.
Bahaha, brilliant. A kobold, I assume?
This is really cool; is it DF concept art or no?
You're right, they only smoke pipes.
Cue Dethklok's "Facefisted."
My money's on Gladiator Russell Crowe Dwarf.
This will change the game forever, and in a good way!
Oh no, it's not about HAVING a Chinese name, it's about... The name. Lei Feng is kind of a joke for most people that I know (including myself)--but hey, whatever works for you.
Well, not being critical or anything, but I've given this matter some thought--if you don't want to be sniggered at by the growingly disillusioned population, maybe you should think of "updating" your name. Let your Ma call you that, but maybe have a different name you can introduce yourself with. The ridicule with a name like that, especially for a foreigner, must be quite heavy... :(
If you ever did want to do that, you could always PM me. I'd be glad to help find you something more fitting.
When I went to go read about it (it looks ******* awesome), I realized that the dev of the game, KingHeftig, just joined our DF group today 0_o How random is that?!
Holy **** man, thanks for the Siege of Turtle Enclave alpha! It must be pretty damn good if you felt like supporting it like that. I'm really excited to try it out! I'll let you know what I think once I do, for sure, and will probably end up writing a review as well. Thanks again, brother, that was super awesome of you!
I see somebody is 向雷锋同志学习, hahahaha.
Great writing for that DF review you did!
This is awesome. Somebody liked my drunken succession game so much that they put it on TV Tropes. Awwww yeahhhhhh.
Holy carp, Toady is working on multi-tile trees, climbing, and jumping...
"With their industries and troll shearing pits most of the way there, I've reached a stopping point for goblins. There's more to be finished up, but it overlaps with dwarves and I'm going to work through the non-player dwarf fortresses first so I have a better chance of unifying what goes on there code-wise. First up though, I'd like to tackle the elves. The main features here'll be multi-tile trees (including roots and properly-sized mushrooms), fruit, flowers, climbing and jumping."
WE care about your dwarven tales. And so does Bay 12. ;P
Not a problem, man! I'm glad it helped. Truly the greatest resource out there for DFers like us.
If the world was "made of money," money wouldn't have a value. If the world was MADE of money... Nothing would exist. Except for money.
Hey man, everybody's got to start somewhere! The difference between mining and channeling might be a bit of a challenge, but you're already well on the road to building a fortress dwarves would be proud of ;P
My succession game (which can be found in the forums) has been going amazingly. Some people have voted it the most entertaining succession game currently on Bay 12--I'd be hard pressed to disagree. It's generated a lot of interest, and a lot of people are playing. Extremely fun!
Hey brother, hope you have a wonderful day today. :)
I would imagine that to be correct, hahaha
I haven't checked it out for well over a month; it's not very active.
I'm sure a lot of people would. Toady is already making approximately 40-50k USD/year on donations alone through Bay 12, though. It's been discussed a lot on the boards. From what I've seen, the consensus thinks DF isn't quite an appropriate Kickstart, given that it's been around for years and Toady already programs it full-time. He's able to live decently enough, and people that love the game enough check out the site and donate through that :-)
Yeah, but it wasn't updated on Desura until a few days ago. That, and it came out RIGHT after my last article (which combined two versions because of how quickly THEY were released, which was immensely annoying). Truth be told, I didn't realize how long this new update would take, as in the past they tend to come out once every two weeks or so. This next version is REALLY overhauling the game, and there's not a solid projected time for when the next update is coming out. So there you have it, Lord Hart!
Hahaha, looks like brewing is pretty important ;P
This is my current desktop.
I like your dwarfy DF style ;)
Did you notice the eyes glowing in the forest on both sides of the road? Dem dorfs are BONED.
I couldn't send you a private message, so I'll just write to you this way :)
Welcome to our group, Nelson! I am very happy to receive you at our Dwarf Fortress fanpage. I have edited your membership capabilities so you can now upload videos and pictures, post articles,and do pretty much whatever you want, whenever you want! I am a firm believer that a community can only be as active as its membership, so I'd be delighted if you ever felt the inclination to post anything. If you are ever bored, feel free to send me a message. I'm always down for chatting about things, from Dwarf Fortress and literature to music and existence more generally. Hope to hear from you,
You're too smart for your own good, Grim ;)
Awww, it looks so nice and cozy ;)
What happened with the FIRST one?!
Didn't you used to have a bio...?
It's to a "Free Font Silkscreen." I am so confused right now.
This maybe is stupid, but I only see two fontsquirrel links... :(
Is there a link for the alpha?
Your game looks extremely interesting, but the graphics a lot like Survivors of Ragnarok. I'm quite curious to see what it's about and how it plays!
I'm using it myself. I added a link in the description so you can get the full-sized version!
Yeah, Dwarf Fortress permeates every level of contemporary society conceivable.
"I've come for the cats."
Thanks for all of your input thus far; I appreciate your time and presence! Hope all is well in Canada,
Happy birthday, brother!
Who is John Galt?
You try out the new DF minecarts yet?
Bahahaha, this is hilarious! Love it!
So THAT'S what happened during the Ice Age...
Although I'm not a huge fan of Minecraft, I think your card game looks quite clever! Good work on that, Sam, it looks really very pro.
Number 5... Jesus. Too funny.
I had a ballista, too... But I thought my militia and war dogs were enough. Apparently NOT.
Well then, here it is! I was hoping to create this group to get Desura members more aware of DF, as well as supporting a related fanbase as a satellite of Bay12. In so doing, it is possible that Desura will update the current DF version more frequently, as well as show people that DF is both well-established and !!Fun!!. I will do my best to provide links to everything DF related so, at the very least, Slaves to Alcohol (StA) can become a DF info hub. Let's see what we can do!
If you love DF as much as we do, I have been in dire need of a friend to chat with about it! Hope to hear back soon, and much respect from China!
