I strike a lot of earth.
DoD seems to have quite the following, especially with Bay 12ers.
This game is heavily influenced by DF and Lovecraft. I can't wait.
We should play together sometime. Pogo has the rights from Hasbro.
Do you like the game Risk?
I have no idea what I just read. So I guess that means you are definitely still Lord of the Geeks. Or at least Meganerds. ~kakakaka
But if you were born in China, you are Chinese ^^
Although I will need to get back to your PM (my response was deleted -_-) and your SWBF comment, why in the world did you change your name to something not understandable? I clamor for the return of the Lord of the Geeks.
Since I am not aware of what the acronym means, I guess not... Hahaha. I don't play a whole lot of games; I tend to just read a lot and talk about games I really like.
I'm not entirely sure how I missed it until today, but I stumbled across a Let's Play of epic proportions (think Boatmurdered). It's so epic, in fact, that people have even written and tabbed out SONGS for it. Yeah, it's that insane. I'm pretty excited for this massive reading project, and I hope all of you are, too! My fellow strikers of earth, I give unto you: Gemclod! Gemclod.goondorfs.net
Ha, I'm on a roll today! I have since stumbled across yet another excellent Let's Play, one which is both lengthy and STILL ongoing! The last update was on the 24th, so we can actually read along as the story continues to unfold. It looks very well-put together, so I think you'll all be able to get into it! I am quite excited for the adventure ahead. Now welcome to Bravemule; be sure to enjoy your stay. Bravemule.com
Sorry, I do not like to advertize that I am a writer. I realize now that the deletion of my comment probably made me look rude for leaving yours up and out of context.
Haha, I have many friends there, I attended 理工大学 for a time!
This is actually pretty hilarious.
So where are you now？
哈哈哈，俺不是什么“人马”呀! 开玩笑啦， ~咔咔咔。 感谢你称赞俺的英语水平，学了好多年。 你知不知道新疆那边？俺妈是维吾尔族。 两个月前俺就是在山东住的，但现在俺留在芝加哥。。。 这边挺容易提高口语！
I'm using it myself. I added a link in the description so you can get the full-sized version!
Magma solves all problems.
Do you teach in China?
Here are two interviews with the creator of DF, Tarn "Toady One" Adams. The first link is to his most recent interview with Alternative Gamer, which came out at the end of June. The second is an extremely in-depth article that was featured in the New York Times a little less than a year ago. Happy reading!
Yeah, Dwarf Fortress permeates every level of contemporary society conceivable.

Thanks for all of your input thus far; I appreciate your time and presence! Hope all is well in Canada,
Hey gang, I just wanted to welcome our 3 new members (which I normally PM, but am unable to well without a computer)! I have updated your statuses within the group so you are able to post content such as artwork, downloads, videos, and the like. This group is only as active as its community, so I happily urge you all to pitch in as you please! As always, feel free to message me with questions, concerns, or feedback.
Really? You don't think so? I'm not saying it's an absolute replica, but I definitely think it IS kind of trying to be. I've played it and found it extremely similar. However, it is not without its merits! For one thing, it's more accessible to a more general playership. Another thing is that it looks good (and we all know DF will never win any graphics contests). Thirdly, it will give DF more exposure and perhaps be the first rung on the ladder to playing it.
Hail, fellow strikers of earth! As I am still computerless in my travels, I have not been able to do much recently. However, I HAVE found a site you might be interested in: Tales from the Fortress! You can not only read the stories of other players, but you can also submit your own! A fun little way to cut some downtime out of your day. Enjoy! Talesfromthefortress.com
I saw that like two days ago... I'm thinking of giving it a shot, although I think we ALL know how much less in-depth it will be ;)
Yeah, this is a Dwarf's errand--not to be confused with "a fool's errand," of course.
To be honest, I don't think it ever will be. I realized that it may not be the fault of Desura so much as Bay12; they never go on their Desura account, and I believe it's up to the developer to upload stuff. I post all of the articles myself currently, even though it normally falls to the developers to do so.
All that being said, it's JUST as easy to download from the DF homepage! It's right at the top for the newest version!
Well, it's still not too late to move to Chicago! Hahahaha--if you did, it's probable we'd party some day with the other Poles there! "Su Polska?" "No, I'm not Polish." "..." "I just want to buy some kolatschkies, sorry."
Your English is -awfully- good for a Pole... Are you sure you're not just an ethnic Pole in Chicago, the only city in the world to boast the 2nd highest Polish population outside of Warsaw? ;)
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 :-)
A hilarious little story with awesome concept art! The story of Bronzemurder (no, not the one with the ninja pachyderms). Timdenee.com
And another wonderful DF comic by Tim Denee: The Saga of Oilfurnace!
Finally, for those of you who are interested, here is some really, really excellent DF concept art. Dwarf-fortress-art.deviantart.com
