Roleplay / Dorf Quest

Go To

Another highly successful text adventure from 4chan, by someone who goes by the name Gnome. Unlike the other notable text adventure, Dorf Quest is mostly built upon the pillars of Rule of Cool and Rule of Funny, 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 Here.


This game provides examples for:

  • A God Am I - 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.)
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking - Among many other horrible crimes, Rary the wizard is also wanted for dine-and-dashing.
  • Art Evolution
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning - Garrelf's apparently took four days, and mostly involved non-stop sex with the queen.
  • Back from the Dead - Both Beardbeard and Garrelf. And Nevada. And Goldmoon.


How well does it match the trope?
