* CaptainObvious: The drunk players to their Dwarves, sometimes. Or to the forum in general when posting turns.
--> '''Moony the Human''': Sorry, I don't drink.
--> '''Bogwedgle''': [[NoTrueScotsman No Dwarf are ye]]!
--> '''Random_Dragon''': Of course he isn't a Dwarf, it says exactly that in his username.



* CuteMonsterGirl: After the tavern update to Dwarf Fortress allowing foreign mercenaries, scholars, and bards to take up residence, came "Drunk Fortress: Exotic Goblin Pole-Dame edition" when a female Goblin entertainer with proficiency with [[BladeOnAStick polearms]] moved in. Her brief popularity was somewhere between TeamPet and {{Mascot}}.



* FailedASpotCheck: The overseers in general. The Dwarves in general. Basically, this trope is generally in effect.



* FailureMontage: Dwarves aren't smart, people are drunk, things break in rapid succession. It happens.



--> '''Scruffy''': Finally someone is going to use that depot for its intended purpose. Burning elves.



--> '''Shoruke''': is our fort infestred with [[OurVampiresAreDifferent VAMPRIE]] [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent WERELEPHATNS]]

to:

Added DiffLines:

* OneTruePairing: The Dwarves are nicknamed after the players in the thread, typically without regard for things like gender or expected lifespan. Dwarves also marry and have children. Jokes were inevitable.
--> '''Random_Dragon''': [[SlayingMantis Kamin]] and [[MesACrowd Shoruke]], OTP.
--> '''Shoruke''': ...Eh, [[RefugeInAudacity I could do worse]]. (/me leaves the internet forever before [[SturgeonsLaw terrible]] [=ShorKamin=] [[SlashFic hentaifics]] become a thing)


Added DiffLines:

* {{Squick}}: Dwarf Fortress is not friendly to the squeamish at the best of times, but when poorly managed it gets even worse. There have been clouds of instantaneous gangrene, several hallways covered in puke, many visceral fights, etc.
--> '''Scruffy''': You put a corpse stockpile in the library?
--> '''Bogwedgle''': Did you notice that the vomit monster was bitten to death?


Added DiffLines:

* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: Occasionally played with when someone new to Drunk Fortress shows up.
--> '''Havarous''': If I am trusted enough to do so, I would like to put myself forward for the position of overseer. You will see on my CV that I am well schooled on [[KillItWithFire burning to death in magma]] and tunnelling two fellas into the earth to survive [[ApocalypseHow the oncoming rampage of fiery death]].
--> '''Shoruke''': ...You're hired. When can you start?
--> '''Bobnova''': Doubly hired. Start now.

* AwesomeButImpractical / RubeGoldbergDevice / RubeGoldbergHatesYourGuts: Most of the... more creative contraptions designed by the drunk overseers.
--> '''Random_Dragon''': (to Bobnova) You've just invented the dwarven combination refrigerator/self-destruct device.



* ClusterFBomb: Can happen. Drunk people on the internet, you know how it is.

to:

* ClusterFBomb: Can happen. Drunk people Unsurprising, since Dwarf Fortress is difficult and everyone playing it is drunk and on the internet, you know how it is.internet.



* DisproportionateRetribution: One player locked a kobold thief inside the fortress. Immediately afterwards, the goblins laid siege.

to:

* DisproportionateRetribution: One player locked a kobold thief inside DisproportionateRetribution:
--> '''Random_Dragon''': I'm gonna eat whoever [[FanNickname dorfed]] me as random_reptile.
* DoubleEntendre:
--> '''Naryar''': Also more seriously, that removal of
the fortress. Immediately afterwards, giant penis was a dick move. Seriously, Scruffy took so much on himself to erect it.
--> '''Shoruke''': Was funny reading how much trouble you guys were having erecting that cock in
the goblins laid siege.volcano, but you fucked your way through it, I guess.



--> '''Taupe''': The seasons are easy to tell with this new fort. I ask myself "are people dying from mass-drowning, or mass-refreeze?"



GagPenis: After Shoruke [[NeverLiveItDown went to the Japanese Penis Festival]] and tried to BrainBleach the day away by playing Drunk Fortress, the next several forts were filled with constructions in the shape of a dick.
--> '''Naryar''': ...and my giant, vertical, erected wooden penis still stands.
--> '''[=Th4DwArfY1=]''': [[DeadpanSnarker You should probably see a doctor, then]].



* IntoxicationEnsues: All the time.
* IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow:
--> '''Scruffy''': These last few turns have raised my interest.
--> '''Taupe''': Is that how you refer to [[GagPenis the various wooden dongs]]?



* LevelAte: Taupe constructed a building in the shape of a giant 3D taco. There was talk of filling it with garnierite furniture and magma as spicy taco salad filling, but the fort died before it could happen. Also the magma pump stack got flooded with both magma and water during construction.



* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Due to the nature of Contagions in Dwarf Fortress.
--> '''Shoruke''': is our fort infestred with [[OurVampiresAreDifferent VAMPRIE]] [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent WERELEPHATNS]]



* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: There have been infestations of Weregeckos, Werehogs, and Vampire Wereelephants.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis:
--> '''Vyro''': Fuck. Me/ Sideways.



** Naryar did one in French as well.
--> '''Naryar''': how do I lizard werewolf
** And then Scruffy did one partly in Finnish.



* UnderTheSea / UnderwaterRuins: Scruffy started a fort atop a lake. No points for guessing what happened to the fort...
--> '''sign''': Welcome to the city of DRUNKFORT VENICE, Land of "That worked about as well as you'd expect"
** Another fort was started atop a frozen lake. Guess what happened to the fort when summer hit and the ice [[CriticalExistenceFailure all melted instantaneously]]? [[labelnote:*]]The actual fortress was fine, but all but two of the Dwarves were standing on the lake. They fell into the water, cracked their heads on the ground, and drowned.[[/labelnote]] Bonus chaos points for having a volcano under the ice.

--> '''Vyro''': ok now hereís a hint, itís a subtle one: THERES A FUCKING [[NeverSmileAtACrocodile CROCODILE]] [[IncendiaryExponent MADE OF FIRE]] AND [[FailedASpotCheck ITS RIGHT INFRONT OF YOU ASSHOLES]].

--> '''[[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Shoruke?]]''': That indeed seems to be the case, for I too, am Shoruke.


Added DiffLines:

** Several polls held in the thread had [[{{Understatement}} more than one]] vote for "I am Shoruke".


Added DiffLines:

* RecursiveTranslation: Shoruke, while living in Japan, did an entire turn in Japanese, then ran the whole thing through Google Translate before posting it. Bearing in mind that he was drunk and doesn't speak very great Japanese at the best of times...
--> '''Shoruke''': I don't know what I said to cause Google Translate to say "baboon baboon".
--> '''Yoink''': I don't know, I'm tired but I think this turn made more sense than the usual ones in a language I sometimes understand.


Added DiffLines:

* UndergroundLevel: As with everyday Dwarf Fortress, fortresses tend to be dug out underground, and there are also naturally-occuring underground caverns. The caverns can be !!fun!!...

* AlienGeometry:
--> '''Shoruke''': Also, did nobody notice that at one point all the rocks seem to be ''negative hundreds of thousands'' of spaces away from the crafting rooms?!?
--> '''Taupe''': Yeah I was like "''who dropped all the crafting materials on the fucking '''sun'''?''"


Added DiffLines:

* MesACrowd: Nicknaming the dorfs is standard practice in Dwarf Fortress, more so in community games, but when drunk you get things like Kamins # 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 77, and 88.

* CantHoldHisLiquor: Considered an advantage, since you need to spend less money on alcohol to be eligible to play!



* DeathWorld: Forgotten Beasts, magma, freezing water, cave-ins, infinite demons, Goblins, badgers and keas... what [[EverythingTryingToKillYou ISN'T trying to kill]] the poor shumuck Dwarves who immigrate?



* DrinkingGame: While Drunk Fortress itself does not strictly count, since one is only required to "be drunk" to play, one of the (oft-forgotten) rules is that players can make a rule for the next player to follow (assuming they are not too drunk to remember it). Creating a drinking game is a popular "rule".



* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Just like in regular Dwarf Fortress, except you can add [[UpToEleven the rules of the game and the previous players]] to the list, as well.



* InTheirOwnImage: Several players have "signed" their name as a digging zone, or made an office in the shape of their own name... Standard SuccessionGame stuff.



** After abandoning and reclaiming the fortress, Shoruke found out the hard way that the Forgotten Beast [[SealedEvilInACan they'd walled into a side room]] wasn't gone, but rather waiting in ambush (and therefore invisible until the moment it started wrecking things again).



** In a meta way, this trope is, itself, ShmuckBait. Someone tries to set up an unlabelled doomsday lever, only to accidentally flood the fortress with magma because they're drunk...

** Of particular note is Wrex's wholesale disaster of a first turn, wrought from slamming back shots of [[http://www.thedrunkenmoogle.com/post/1204475764 an approximation]] of ''[[Franchise/MassEffect ryncol]]''.
