Oh, come on like Bonn-o-Tron. This thread was almost immediately buried. That's so fail.

Yeah.

There are also only 36 polar bears, so I figured the anchovies ate all the polar bears.

Oh crap, there are 46 million Flies.

A single cult. Kills vermin. Or you could half-starve your fort so they look for vermin to eat.

I never buy cults. I took to selling the anvil and then buying 28 war dogs.

Fortress is where it's at. Adventure mode is for people who want to... well, I'm not sure what they're doing, since the name of the game includes the best mode.

Yes, but in adventure mode you can have a troll smash you with his backpack...which sends you flying into a wall and your organs fly everywhere. All described in wonderful gory detail.

The guy who makes is it insane about it(in a good way), read the recent development log on the cite.

The completed army arc is gonna be the coolest thing ever, and by the way he does intend to tighten up the graphics. After a while your brain starts to naturally interpret the ASCII, personally I am gonna have mixed feeling when the game goes to an official graphic set.

NEw players, be sure to guard your caves well with traps...Goblins got into mine once and massacred half of my people.

Yea traps are very important, however my tactic is to seal off my fortress except for a water channel that is intended to bring drinking water in, note this typically just floods my fortress.
