Another highly successful [[ChooseYourOwnAdventure text adventure]] from 4chan, by someone who goes by the name Gnome. Unlike [[Roleplay/RubyQuest the other notable text adventure]], Dorf Quest is mostly built upon the pillars of RuleOfCool and RuleOfFunny, making just about everything possible.

Beardbeard is a dorf who set out on an adventure to get a name for himself, earn some cash, and get drunk. Other characters include Garrelf, the only manly elf in existence, Aldwin the human rogue, the neckbeard apprentice Lily, and the orc Cultist of Xom. The threads can be found [[http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Dorf%20Quest Here.]]

!This game provides examples for:

* [[spoiler: AGodAmI - As of the most recent thread, Beardbeard is the God of Strength after defeating Heracles. Although it would fit the trope better to say it was the fan reaction to it (since they, after all, ultimately control Beardbeard.)]]
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking - Among many other horrible crimes, Rary the wizard is also wanted for dine-and-dashing.
* ArtEvolution
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning - Garrelf's apparently took four days, and mostly involved non-stop sex with the queen.
* BackFromTheDead - Both Beardbeard and Garrelf. [[spoiler:And Nevada. And Goldmoon.]]
* BodyHorror - Xom is all about this.
* CaptainErsatz - Cultist is one of "Cultist-chan", a parody of the Chaos Cultists of the first DawnOfWar game.
* CastHerd - Beardbeard and Garrelf. Aldwin, Lily, and Cultist. Later, [[spoiler:Garrelf and Arialla.]]
* CatapultNightmare - Whenever Aldwin remembers a certain horrific event in his dreams...
* CerebusSyndrome - Started out as random craziness, but developed a real plot later on.
* CharacterAlignment - Most have been revealed by Gnome.
* ChekhovsBoomerang - Xom's blessing is something everyone knows about, but it hits so infrequently that its always out of nowhere.
* ChekhovsGunman - Nevada.
* CosmicKeystone - the Leylines.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - Xom, being the god of chaos, is a random, cackling fool. However, if he ever becomes serious he can be a deadly force: the planet used to have three moons at some point.
* DeathIsCheap
* DramaBomb - Several, and often with MoodWhiplash to boot.
* EvilerThanThou - The showdown between Garrelf and Beardbeard, * both* having been declared the big bads of the world.
* TheFaceOfTheSun - SunBeard is pretty cool.
* FateWorseThanDeath - [[spoiler: Queen Arialla. She deserved it, though.]]
* FightUnscene - [[http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/3512634/#3513231 Man that was an epic battle. Good thing I didn't draw it panel by panel]] - [[NoodleIncident just the Lasso Scene would have taken forever!]]
* GenreSavvy - Lily.
* GoOutWithASmile - [[spoiler: Garrelf]]
* HitmanWithAHeart - Goldmoon and her associates.
* ImprovisedWeapon - Doorshield, Axefoot. This is one of Beardbeard's powers: 'Anything is a weapon'.
* IndyPloy - All the time, by everyone from Gnome, through players, to characters themselves.
* InTheBack - Partly subverted: Glittergold challenged the god Oona for a fair battle in order to gain her divinity for himself... except that she was currently on her deathbed because he had poisoned her for an entire year beforehand.
---> Rary: "Very sportsmanlike of him."
* LaserGuidedAmnesia - [[spoiler:Poor Mado was largely motivated by getting her friend/[[ShipTease lover]] back to life, only to forget her entirely by a convenient head wound just before she finally came back.]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters - At first we just had Beardbeard and Sunbeard. Then Garrelf, Musclebeard, and Satan. And then Aldwin and Lily. And then Finlay, Cultist, Arialla, Fate, Nemelex, Glittergold, Goldmoon, Nevada, Mado, Kav, Nana, Mace, Yami, Presley, Mah-Mee, Coco, Djinn, King, British, Jeeves, Krann... And we will likely meet more.
* NeverFoundTheBody - [[spoiler:Garrelf went missing recently, after apparently dying. WordOfGod says he's still kicking.]]
** [[spoiler:Finlay.]]
* OfficialCouple - Aldwin and Cultist. [[spoiler:Mado and Nevada too.]]
* [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Our Dorfs Are All The Same]] - Taken to a violent and psychopathic extreme.
** Slightly subverted. Beardbeard no longer looks remotely like his fellow dorfs, but he still behaves like one.
*** Actually, if Musclebeard or the King are any indication, he ''doesn't''. Most Dorfs are... well... ''[[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarves]]'', albit highly [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]]. Beardbeard, on the other hand, is psychopathic, violent, bad at crafts, and maybe just a little bipolar. He is a [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] version of a [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] Dorf. Beardbeard is a Dorf as viewed through a cracked mirror.
* ParentalAbandonment - [[spoiler:Lily, but for a good reason.]]
* {{Pride}}
* PyrrhicVictory - The [[spoiler:battle with Garrelf.]]
* RageAgainstTheHeavens - Beardbeard [[MeaningfulName Godslayer]] didn't earn that last name for no reason. And his current plans involve usurping a different deity.
* RetCon - [[spoiler:The father of Cultist's child was changed due to fan outrage. Although Gnome hadn't exactly revealed the true father at that point, only strongly hinting it, it still counts.]]
** Kav's [[spoiler:death from being eaten alive.]]
* ShieldSurf
* ShipTease - Gnome gleefully supports all shipping with art.
* ShoutOut - Mostly for Linley's Dungeon Crawl and ''Roleplay/RubyQuest''.
** And Pokemon. And YumeNikki. And Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda. And MsPaintAdventures. And many many more.
* SubordinateExcuse - Mado to Nevada.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics - Girls are pink! And gods are blue! In fact, the widespread acceptance of this trope allowed Kav to be noticed as a girl long before people knew anything about her.
* TookALevelInBadass - Garrelf.
** Driblis took TWELVE levels in Badass.
* TortureTechnician - Garrelf.
* UnsoundEffect - HORRENDOUS BEAST!
** I'm pretty sure that was just Don Quixote shouting, not a sound effect...
* VillainProtagonist
* WillfullyWeak - [[spoiler:Mado is holding back her true strength so that she could remain as Nevada's apprentice instead of being moved elsewhere.]]
** Also applies to Garrelf. He can 'power up' by taking off his bracers, but its a one-way ticket to eternal banishment.
* [[BreakTheCutie Naga nurse]].
* WordOfGod - Gnome is significantly more open about his game than [[Roleplay/RubyQuest Weaver]], frequently commenting and revealing stuff.
