** PetTheDog: Player!Rotpar is the one who finally ''does'' create the crisis (namely, he breaches hell), which results in the death of most of the adult population of the fortress. Of course, the players all leap to the defense of their alcoholic minions. This is what led to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Operation SLAYER]].

* NamesTheSame: The fort had two Rotpars, both of whom are now dead. Which is odd, because Rotpar isn't actually a dwarven name.


* ShoutOut: Rotpar's first turn has many to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', while fishsicles' second [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann goes the other direction]]. ''The game itself'' gets into it at the end of that turn and a child's fell mood creates an adamantine artifact flute Drillcrusher, engraved with images of itself like a never ending spiral. Various other points have included references to everything from "[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Stop Meeting the Heavy]]", to ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway''.

* {{Badass}}: Ultimatepheer, Big Damn Hero, who at one point kicked off a demon's head. Even given that the demon was made of snow, that's pretty cool. Adil Aristcatten, too.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential All the players.]] Most of the thread's discussion is centred on the fact that there is nothing horrible happening to the fort, and how to create a crisis amusing enough to make the game interesting.

** Back to kicking with Dorku walling a guy up to disprove the existence of ghosts...a task doomed to failure.


The primary feature of the landscape is the weather pattern dubbed the "evil gloom", a mass of fog that pass over the landscape and induce profuse bleeding followed by death in anything unfortunate enough to get caught up in them. Flocks of giant insects flit across the landscape, and two ocean inlets beat against their narrow shores.

* DifficultySpike: fishsicles' turn was spent ballsing about with an aquifer and building a massive amount of water wheels, with the evil glooms as just a side note. Tuefel Hunden IV's turn featured the death of several dwarves to glooms (including one that spawned right on the entrance), followed by [[ItGotWorse a tantrum spiral]].
