The Most Awesome Mayor of Ustomondul by kruggsmash The Most Awesome Mayor of Ustomondul by kruggsmash
Just a story of something that happened to me in the game Dwarf Fortress. Listen..the game takes a LOAD of patience to learn but it is, without a doubt the most creativity inducing video game I've ever played. If you see yourself as a creative person and you like video games then you owe it to yourself to learn this game. There are so many useful videos on youtube and theres the dwarf fortress wiki as well to help you get started. Totally worth it!

Oncem while managing a community fort, the fortress was divided in two: the eastern part of the fort being inhabited by all the normal dwarves, a million crundles and a goblin archer called Smuntsu that was walled in the ex mayor's office (we called him the minister of agriculture). And the western part, inhabited by a millenia-old vampire lord who singlehandedly took down a siege of 60 goblins and 42 trolls. The fort was divided by a wall and the only way to enter the western half was trought a bridge, a wall and several locked doors.

Eventually, two kobold thiefs managed to lockpick their way into the western fort. They got well inside the fort before being found by the bloodsucker. The two kobolds ran into a room that used to be a dormitory, when the vampire entered that room, I forbidden the doors to the room and left the vampire locked inside, allowing me to reclaim the fort and to throw the ceiling over the vampire's head.
Do you know what the best part is?
One of the little kobolds managed to dodge the vampire and run back to his tribe with some scratches, a gold ring and a hell of a story to tell.
Gotta love DF.

I guess I would try to. I'll need to see if my scanner gets fixed someday. (Also, I lack any knowledge about any programs to draw digitally).

Vampires.
The body of a dwarf crossed with the survival abilities of a sea sponge possessed by Hannibal...

I once imprisoned a vampire inside of a high, thin tower, far away from everything and preparing everything so I could flood my entire water system with his blood...
He managed to become mayor too xD

Yeah, Ive heard that because they are alive so long that their social skills are very well developed and they tend to get a lot of friend easily who in turn vote for him  or her as mayor....awesome!

Aren't Goblins at peace with nature? Creating 'Rancor Pits' was something I was always fond of until I discovered that goblins thrown in would peacefully mingle with monsters....

the croc is just doing his thing, the goblins would all drown. Thats why the trolls got along with the crocs though.

Though, I'm kinda surprised that he died in the hand of a mere goblin spearman.
I mean, he beats trolls, crocodiles for years.

Did sunlight cause that much damage to him?

Honestly I have no idea what happened there. It wasn't really a constant battle like I had depicted in the comic. Everyone would just kinda swim around at random and if he bumped into something he would hack at them and they would both continue on. He DID manage to kill quite a few of them like this though.

Nope, dwarven vampires aren't affected by the sun

maybe its because the awesomeness of it destroyed the brains of the less devoted followers of the series >.> but anyways, so long as you play dwarf fortress in order to conjure up stories like this, your ability to be legendary will never drop in my eyes.

  Only in Dwarf Fortress. The vampire mayor spent all those years in the Moat in conflict... only to be killed by a mere goblin spearman.

Vampires can't drown, so as long as he survived conflict, he'd have been fine.
