    But I am pretty sure that I can't sell the dragon soul creation since nowhere can I find the CR of a dragon soul to support my (vain) plea with.

    * I am no longer allowed to create a simulacrum of a Deva (originally summoned via a cleric spell). The simulacrum then plays a song by the band Angel (Don't Leave Me Lonely) over and over again, as though it were on an 8 track tape.

    I once owned that album, but it was on vinyl, not 8 track tape. I also once saw that band live; they opened for Styx. And as a DM, I had that song playing in the background when an angel appeared as part of a quest ... please don't hate me ...

    In Dwarf Fortress, mermaid bones were worth a fair bit when mermaids were first introduced. Once the creator found out about people setting up seaside mermaid farms to raise and murder mermaids just for their bones, he massively dropped their value out of horror.

    {Scrubbed} that’s horrifying.

    Also I do remember that there was something like that in The Lives of Christopher Chant. The main character becomes aversive to salmon because of it. I do recommend the series in general, really.

    To be fair to the stone-dragon polymorph plan, dragons are the bards of the monster world. So what your GM is saying is that the rock is less likely to produce offspring while polymorphed.

    I'm guessing the direcat thing is a reference.

    The entire conversation is a reference to Dwarf Fortress. It's a very... memetic game. Because it goes deep on the simulation in ways that allows many weird interactions.

    Dwarfs also tend to adopt cats as pets, and whole games can be lost due to cat population explosions which will crash your fps into single digits making it unplayable. Losing is Fun!

    No no no, the cats adopt the Dorfs. This is in fact a specific feature, as most other pets are indeed adopted by the decision of the dorf in question. It's just the cats.

    Heh, didn't know about that, but then I avoided cats as much as I could for the longest time d/t playing on older computers and knowing their inherent threat to game stability.

    To be fair, while it's been a while since I've not had a PC freeze while generating history, I remember it being pretty hard to avoid war with elves. I see no issue to getting a headstart on the inevitable.

    * There are dwarf names other then Urist.
    * My dwarf ranger must wear more than socks and cloaks.
    * The first anvil was not gifted to mortal races by Urist Uristdotter, high God of the dwarves.
    * I cannot take Phobia; Carp.


    My PC suites successfully run Gnomoria for some reason, maybe I should play the inferior version.
