The Fall of Koganusan by majicxiii The Fall of Koganusan by majicxiii
The fortress of Koganusân burns, without and within.

All is smoke and fire.




I've been playing quite a lot of Dwarf Fortress recently, which is a perhaps surprisingly engaging game despite its quirks.

This particular picture is based on the now-legendary saga of Boatmurdered, a tale of equal parts tragedy and hilarity.

"The dwarves of Khazad-dűm dug too deep and awakened a daemon of darkness and fire. 'Tis not so with the dwarves of the Smooth Points of Pride. These creatures, having long abandoned any trace of sanity, did craft a much greater monster from the earth itself."

This picture is very epic, by the way! (yeah, I'm about 4 years slow, but...)

Yah I have to agree, nice quote. The Balrog has nothing on the legendary mismanagement and insanity that was Koganusan.

When I did a search, this image popped up right next to this [link] image. Those 2 right next to each other creates both a striking contrast, yet are so similar that it seems like one has merely looked at the same scene in reverse. It perfectly sums up boatmurdered. Just something I thought I'd share.

"All burns..."

A moment of silence for those few, great Dwarves.

That is exactly how I imagined that. Great work, this should work as concept art for a massive 300 million $ movie production about Boatmurdered. Pure epic.
However didn't you forget about enormous gecko monument?

Everything burns. Even the Rocks burn. Koganusân is lost.
