* They can't identify if it's elf. They probably think the dwarves have a similar tradition of eating their enemies alive, so they just assume it's a trophy. If they did figure it out, they would be about as horrified as cutting down trees.

No computer on the planet should be able to handle that much detail. Instead, it hypnotizes the players, making them believe that they are seeing reality in it's entirety represented by ascii characters. The level of the perception filter actually allows members of the Website/Bay12 community to experience a shared hallucination.

Unfortunately, because the elven mass-production process is so shoddy and failure-prone in the first place (it's the lack of [[MagicTool beards]], I tell you), elven artifacts barely count as normal items. Because these strange moods happen so frequently, they form the base of the elven economy, supplemented by catching exotic animals in those strange elven forest retreats with their "artifact" cages.

It fits with elves' magical nature in, well, pretty much every other fantasy setting ever.

They can build perpetual motion machines with water, create magma reservoirs out of ice, the tiniest bit of water can be used to grow unlimited plants from a single spot, and entire fortress can be held up by a single support made of soap. How is this all possible? Dwarves generate quantum fields that tamper with probability, allowing them to build anything [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve they believe they can]]. They don't even [[AchievementsInIgnorance realize what they're building shouldn't be possible]]. The reason they don't ever have to go the bathroom is that all the matter they consume is broken down into energy, making the dwarves basically biological fission reactors.

Maximilian Cohen, the main character, discovers a number which could very well be the seed-number'''''of the entire universe.''''' When he tries to focus on it too much he goes insane and throws a tantrum, smashing up his masterwork computer. When [[spoiler: he stabs his head with his power drill, badly piercing his head and badly piercing his brain, he can no longer do math]], but it's OK, because he doesn't really care about anything anymore.

Aside from the lack of common sense, strange moods (artificial brains going haywire), and inability to care that they're on fire aside from thirst (the fire burns off their alcohol reserves), the only thing against this (if you count meat as technological cannibaism between the races) is the explicit detail given to body parts, which is explained by them being extremely detailed robots that look extremely humanlike from a 1x magnification level. They run on alcohol, which is why they get "upset" when they run low.

** Or possibly, the broken carp already ''are'' super-dragon-carp. These were the more powerful ancestors of the modern Magikarp. When a Magikarp evolves in to Gyarados, it is reverting to its original form. [[NonLethalKO The reason why]] [[Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily it can't kill so much as a Pidgey]] is because it was toned down by Toady.
