** This being ''Dwarf Fortress'', this quite often results in players [[TakeThatScrappy killing nobles with all manners of ingenious death devices]].

** This being ''Dwarf Fortress'', this quite often results in players [[TakeThatScrappy killing nobles with all manners of ingenious death devices]]. The simplest being a fancy room that locks from the outside with a fancy lever as well. Get the noble in there, have a commoner pull the lever, and watch as the noble burns to death in lava. Rinse and repeat.



* TheCaligula: Nobles often qualify as this, making absurd demands and ordering anybody who doesn't comply severely punished.

* DropTheHammer: the The appropriately-named Hammerer.Hammerer, who administers Dorf justice with a big hammer and a worse attitude. It's advised you build a jail as soon as possible because if the Sheriff doesn't have one a noble can have an important Dorf executed because they didn't get their diamond encrusted soap-carved spoon.


Added DiffLines:

* NameMcAdjective: As dwarves have their own names and tend to share first names, the name "Urist" (dwarven for "dagger") became the standard placeholder with "[=McJob=]" being a reference to how generic dwarves are in other fantasy worlds. With this it makes it easier to talk about specific dwarves and their jobs like "Urist [=McCarpenter=]" or "Urist [=McSheriff=] or "Urist [=McUselessNoble=].

** "Live training" involves capturing invaders in cage traps, stripping them naked, and carefully releasing them for your fully armed and armored dwarves to butcher. More dangerous creatures like trolls can be dropped into pits and used for target practice by marksdwarves.

** The non-meat, non-metal portion of goblinite becomes this. Until industries pick up, a "[[FanNickname Goblin Christmas]]" is a windfall, but after the inferior loot piles up, it becomes such a chore foisting it on the caravans that players come up with more selective disposal methods.

* AIGeneratedEconomy: Showing us the pitfalls of giving the AI control over sectors of the economy is the DummiedOut [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/40d:Dwarven_economy eponymous feature]]: when some conditions were fulfilled, all dwarves were awarded private accounts to spend on food and other items they could buy from shops--except for nobles and [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority legendary dwarves]], who could take whatever without spending anything. Dwarves were able to buy shops and sell items in it for their own benefit. This lead to bizarre things like children of nobles/legendary dwarves being ''poorer'' than average and dwarves spending all their time counting their coins.

** In adventure mode the game is perfectly fine allowing you to use a limb from a being made of magma or something seemly hazardous to hold as a lawn dart.
