    If we look at 3:56, in a few seconds after that, we will see a goblin girl with purple lips. That's by the artist InCase. InCase draws traps getting fucked by chicks with dicks. I see Sseth is a man of culture.

    Galena, 251
    A wereass invades my fledgling fortress. My underdwarfed and novice militia, mostly unarmored and unarmed still, meet the foe outside. With a heavy price the heroes of Dipboulder manage to defeat the creature of the night. The wounded are carried into the hospital, the dead are laid to rest in rock salt coffins and the few lucky soldiers who managed to stay unharmed promptly go to the meeting hall for a drink.
    A few dead dwarves would've been relatively easy to recover from. Unfortunately though, the dwarves wounded by the frenzied Ass of Night now carry his were-curse. They transform into monsters within my fortress. In the hospital, in their bedrooms, in the meeting hall. The fortress is filled with carnage and screams of terror as the beasts tear the population into pieces. Even if a dwarf manages to survive the savage mauling from one of these monsters, they will then also be inflicted with the curse.
    Even with just a handful of dwarves left, Dipboulder will not be abandoned and given up to the forces of darkness. The survivors, those who have not succumbed to madness, wall themselves inside the medical ward. The doctor, the carpenter and the fisherdwarf who has several deep cuts and bite marks on his body...
    Months later, after the mentally ravaged dwarves have starved to death and the total population of the fortress has been reduced to just one fisherdwarf, migrants arrive to discover a scene worse than their most horrid nightmares. A fortress seemingly devoid of life, filled with torn apart corpses, hallways painted with blood, the miasma of rotting flesh permeating the air within and the vengeful dead haunting the living world having not been laid to rest properly. The newcomers are deeply and permanently traumatised, many beyond their breaking points. Some fall into depression, some are taken by melancholy, a few taken over by a berserk rage. Each bit of unhappiness further contributes to the overall atmosphere of misery.
    Word gets out of the misfortune the fortress has faced, but those courageous pioneers who brave the danger are met by a deeply scarred and devastated population. Arguments, abuse and even outright violence are everyday events among the population of Dipboulder. The wereass curse might be contained within the old, sealed-off hospital, but the inhabitants now carry a curse of misery of their own. All newcomers are eventually worn down by the negative atmosphere of the place and become angry, depressed and bitter, just waiting for more unfortunate souls to arrive and perpetuate the misery even further.
    9/10, could've gone worse

    Holy shit you probably single handedly increased the number of people who tried DF by an irder if magnitude. If as many of them succeed as I expect, you've probably added one new person ti the fanbase.

    Hey Sseth, I love your videos but at 6:12 you implied certain fictional characters were 'traps'. The term trap is a slur. Transgender, non-binary, or otherwise gender nonconforming characters aren't deceiving others, they're presenting themselves the way they want to. Trap implies that they're trying to trick people (presumably men) into sex under false pretences. This is not true and joking about it only perpetuates a stereotype that does real, tangible harm to human beings. I know that your reviews aren't totally serious and are meant to be entertaining above all else but I would really appreciate it if you didn't use 'trap' in that manner in the future. Thank you.

    I remember trying to play this, I don't remember the whole story but here's the gist. My Dwarf fortress was going well it seemed, we had beer and some other places to build things. Then one day one one of the dwarfs bring in a dead animal I think, which stank the whole pace up with miasma. I though, "I'm pretty sure if I set up a locked area for corses and dead things, this will fix itself." But that was quite the opposite, even though I designated that area as such, no one bothered to pick it up. I was wondering what the hell is going on, many more dwarfs died because of this. I eventually learned I did something wrong; probably having to manually tell them or something else. It worked but sadly the damage was done, my fortress was mostly dead from the dank smell.
