* {{Badass}}: [=GuerillaMedic=] is the only dwarf to leave Boatmurdered alive, thanks in part to his skill as a soldier and the fact that he's [[DualWielding carrying two weapons]] and is wearing plate mail ''over'' his chain shirt.
** Several of the elephants, as well. They kill so many dwarves, they actually manage to earn quite long titles (such as one which roughly translates to [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Lungdespair]]). Which is not a good thing, but is very badass indeed. For, you know, enraged, homicidal pachyderms.
** Sankis, after retiring from rule, survives several more generations of rulers (impressive in itself), attempts to drink magma, beats up a cow and a baby, and finally takes on an elite marksdwarf ''[[IncendiaryExponent while on fire]]'', breaking every bone in his body and setting him on fire before finally burning to death herself.
-->'''Kire:''' I bet if Sankis ever dies, she [[MadeOfExplodium explodes in an enormous detonation]] that will take out a large part of the mountain with it. Water will pool in the crater in the years afterward, and it will be remembered as [[GraveHumor "The Watery Crater Tomb of Sankis."]]

* BlessedAreTheCheesemakers: "Apparently the two most significant historical events here in Boatmurdered are elephants and cheese. Take a close look at the cheese ones actually, they aren't even carvings of cheese, but renditions of some ''other'' image of a cheese. They're freaking homages!"
** Cross Quantum eventually tracks down the work being referenced, and agrees that "this image of a cheese speaks to the dwarven spirit, and will be a cultural treasure for generations to come."

** Former ruler "Emperor Sankis" Gatinbomrek spends a few months trying to drink from the magma river (actually the result of a bug), but snaps out of it and goes back to making horrifying engravings.

So begins the tale of the dwarven settlement of Koganusân, better known as "[[http://lparchive.org/Dwarf-Fortress-Boatmurdered/ Boatmurdered]]." Perhaps '''[[TropeMaker the]]''' ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' LetsPlay, Boatmurdered was a SuccessionGame played in one-game-year turns by Website/SomethingAwful members that quickly became the stuff of legends.

The game started innocently en... actually, no, from the very beginning the poor dwarves were plagued by murderous elephants. Then came the food shortages. And the goblins. Then the floods. And then the [[LavaAddsAwesome lava]]. All of this was compounded by the usual problems of a succession game, with leaders at odds over how to run the settlement, half-finished and forgotten projects, an increasingly labyrinthine fort layout, and outbreaks of megalomania and supervillainy. By the end of the thread the fort is in ruins, but everyone agrees that they've created ''the'' root of evil in the dwarven universe.

Like all ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' games, the Let's Play ends [[KillEmAll violently]].

* StartOfDarkness: Boatmurdered started out as an innocent enough mining colony. In just over a decade it became hell on earth.
