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.

Impressive painting of Boatmurdered. I've finished reading the tale not too long ago, and this somber rendition of possibly the most (in)famous fortress in all of Dwarven history looks, well, somber.

"The dwarves of Khazad-dm 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.
