to give you an idea of the kind of people who play Dwarf Fortress, mermaid bones used to be really really valuable. the player base reacted by making threads detailing how to capture, imprison, and breed mermaids, “air-drown” their children, butcher them for bones, and sell them to elves to the point where Toady One nerfed the value of the bones out of horror for what he had created

people reblogging this seem to be under the impression that this is the most horrifying thing Dwarf Fortress players have ever done and i would like to point out that when someone made a thread suggesting a dwarven “child care” system consisting of throwing babies into a 3x3 pit with a caged dog and 12 year’s worth of food to produce super-soldiers with Legendary experience in dodging and punching and asked for feedback on it, someone replied “you should zombify the babies first so the dog doesnt kill them”

The sadistic insanity present within the Dwarf Fortress playerbase is one of the reasons I love this game and wish to learn more about how to actually get started playing.

has nobody mentioned the whole thing where the only reliable way to separate a mother dwarf from her baby is to throw them into a stream of high pressure water and let it pull the baby out of her arms

Oh my god what

The playerbase continues to amaze me with their ingenuity and downright evilness. I like it.

Well if you want to  use female dwarves in your military you have to separate the baby from the mother otherwise she uses it like a ballistic shield straight out of CoD

With the same level of bullet-stopping power.

the altar my

suddenly ancient face-

I remember her

my grandmother

at the moment she

could not remember

me I could have

been anyone and

she was afraid

of the man who

stopped to kiss

her on the cheek

and o god this

was holy, this is

how I abruptly

knew god

it was in the furrows

of my face as I

saw my grandmother

not know me. don’t

matter that I don’t believe

I could have

killed him between

my hands

Here are three elements we often see in town names:

If a town ends in “-by”, it was originally a farmstead or a small village where some of the Viking invaders settled. The first part of the name sometimes referred to the person who owned the farm - Grimsby was “Grim’s village”. Derby was “a village where deer were found”. The word “by” still means “town” in Danish.

If a town ends in “-ing”, it tells us about the people who lived there. Reading means “The people of Reada”, in other words “Reada’s family or tribe”. We don’t know who Reada was, but his name means “red one”, so he probably had red hair.

If a town ends in “-caster” or “-chester”, it was originally a Roman fort or town. The word comes from a Latin words “castra”, meaning a camp or fortification. The first part of the name is usually the name of the locality where the fort was built. So Lancaster, for example, is “the Roman fort on the River Lune”.

This president takes more disrespect than any other president in my lifetime. Even Richard Nixon in his last months in office was treated with more respect. Personally, I am disgusted with the dismal behavior of many of my fellow citizens. If you don’t like the occupant of the oval office, you should have good reasons and you should have a well structured logical argument as to why you don’t like him. In no event, should you ever disrespect the office holder. We are just not seeing this in the case of President Obama and that is wrong!

Drones. Killing American citizens abroad without a trial. More pot arrests than any president in history. Backing Israel. Letting Detroit rot. Only becoming pro-lgbt after we made progress without him. Not doing a damn thing about Guantanamo. Not allowing the single-payer people in on the meetings during the negotiations of the Affordable Care Act… How many reasons do I need? Because I can fucking list them.



Visits Standing Rock Rez and promises to renew the country’s relationship with Native Americans. Two weeks later gives the green light to steal more tribal land.

I want to show this to people who hate “Bama”. Because 90% of the people I know who hate him, dislike him because “he’s going to steal our guns that damn communist!” like……. come on. there are real reasons to dislike him and that’s what you’re going with???
