Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In the year 1050, the dwarven civilization of Kinmelbil, "The Oaken Tomes", exhausted the last of its mines. Driven by lust for gold and rumors of the priceless and all but mythical metal adamantine, a team of seven colonists was dispatched to build a new home for the dwarves of Kinmelbil in the Smooth Points of Pride. The first year of diaries from the ill-fated foreman of the mine were recovered, giving some hint as to the beginnings of the fortress that once stood there, if not its mysterious and presumably gruesome fate...So begins the tale of the dwarven settlement of Koganusân, better known as "Boatmurdered", a tale horrific even by Dwarf Fortress standards.The game started innocently eno... actually, no, from the very beginning the poor dwarves were plagued by murderous elephants. Then came the food shortages. And the goblins. Then the floods. And then the lava. All of this was compounded by the usual problems of a succession game, with leaders at odds over how to run the settlement, half-finished and forgotten projects, an increasingly labyrinthine fort layout, and outbreaks of megalomania and supervillainy.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Like all Dwarf Fortress games, the Let's Play ends violently. By the end of the thread the fort is in ruins, but everyone agrees that they've created the root of evil in the dwarven universe.Perhaps the Let's Play for Dwarf Fortress, Boatmurdered was a Succession Game played in one-game-year turns by Something Awful members that quickly became the stuff of legends.You can find an audio adaption of Boatmurdered here.

Gone Horribly Right: When a flood traps a number of dwarves outside, Sankis decides to use Project: Fuck the World to evaporate the water. Instead this ends up scalding the dwarves to death. The water, however, is successfully evaporated.

During the ruling of Sankis, one of his swordsdwarves tries to get a drink not by going to the well or drinking from the edge of the river but by wading out into the middle of the river and trying to drink from around him. Against all odds, he manages to survive.

Crapsack World
 Boatmurdered (Lets Play) / int_21d70919
comment
Crapsack World: Even from the start. Boatmurdered sits right in the middle of the territory of a huge horde of elephants. The elephants are a constant, impossible-to-get-rid-of problem until the magma tunnels are completed and the outside is flooded with molten rock. Later, Boatmurdered turns into a complicated mess, with nobody knowing what does what, and nothing being managed or completely fixed until the eventual fall of the fortress. As far as scenery, before PFTW is complete, the predominant things to see in front of the fortress are rampaging elephants and dead dwarves (and the dead dwarves' stuff, which is unusually popular...). Afterward, there's the fields of charred grass and dead ground, and heaps upon heaps of skeletonized elephants and goblins as far as the eye can see.

Chekhov's Gun: The Siege Engines. They were initially made to kill Elephants that were making it through the cage trap hallway that created a moat at the south end of Boatmurdered. After Project 'Fuck The World' was completed, they were completely forgotten for a decade. No one ever though to get rid of them, move them, or, well, do anything with them. During one of Mariguana's uses of 'Fuck The World,' one of the catapults caught fire, and the smoke lasted for weeks, driving the Dwarves inside Boatmurdered insane and paving the way for Boatmurdered's destruction.

Though StarkRavingMad displays some common sense by getting the hell out of Boatmurdered once his time was up.

Ax-Crazy: StarkRavingMad's username says it all. "I've started project 'Fuck The World,' a top secret attempt to funnel magma to the outside. I'll kill those elephants. I'll kill all those fucking elephants." Near the end, mariguana unleashes the magma on a human caravan, the only allies the dwarves had. In a bit of karma, the smoke from the burning bodies provides the catalyst for the fort's collapse into madness.

Properly Paranoid: Keyboard Fox sets up a wide array of traps, and Locus goes further by laying a vast trap field for the Elephants. Ironically, StarkRavingMad accuses Locus of having some sort of Elephant issue, but ultimately laxes on the traps, which sets off the fortresses' long-standing issues with the Elephants. Bremen. "I've taken steps to make sure the elephants never menace this fortress again. The others think I'm paranoid, but they're all fools. The elephants will return, and unless we're ready they'll trample every last one of us to dust!" He was right. Unfortunately, his preparations failed spectacularly.

Becoming the Mask: Bremen's character eventually becomes this. Bremen started as an opportunistic hobo who found Ral Swaeringen's real successor's body and the invite to become a leader of Boatmurdered, and took the opportunity to go there and get the money Bremen thought being a leader entailed (which ironically didn't happen because it wasn't until Bremen's reign that Boatmurdered became a capitalistic economic force.) Eventually, Bremen learns to respect the Dwarves under their command and takes measures to undo the problems Ral Swaeringen's reign brought in the form of Elephant sieges, starting up an elite crossbow taskforce that they join at the end of their reign.

The Caligula: The director Mariguana. (Who is a separate character from Mariguana's first director, since canonically Melor is already buried in her tomb) He is the penultimate director for good reason; he tried to make a tough-guy persona, became the mask, and issued a policy of no mercy against the Elves and Elephants after Doctor Zero worked hard to bring Boatmurdered out from the depressing spiral he had found it in. This had the effect of driving Mariguana mad with power, leading to the overuse of Project 'Fuck The World' to deal with literally every problem outside of Boatmurdered. When he used Project 'Fuck The World' a third time, however, he only realized at the last second just how much he fucked up when he burned friendly humans to a crisp...and caught the Siege Engines on fire with the smoke from the human remains that had not seen use since Project 'Fuck the World' first saw use. Turns out in his fervor to kill all Elephants and Elves, Mariguana never realized he could potentially put the rest of the Dwarves ''inside'' at risk.

Driven to Suicide
 Boatmurdered (Lets Play) / int_6d332aea
comment
Driven to Suicide: Not uncommon throughout the Let's Play, mostly due to routine fey moods. Later, smoke and miasma cause a lot of dwarves to "wander into the flames." DF players like to say that there is some kind of secret suicidal fire cult in every fortress, as this is a common ending to a fortress.

Crazy Enough to Work: When one of his miners accidentally digs into a water main (and subsequently floods the whole fortress), Sankis makes the desperate decision to save the fortress by triggering the trap that will fill the tunnels with lava in the hopes that the two will cancel each other out, the lava evaporating the water and the water extinguishing the lava. Against all logic, it actually works.

My God, What Have I Done?: Sankis, despite what the rest of this page and the character page will attest to, started as a well-meaning but bored-out-of-her-skull director for Boatmurdered. She felt that taking up Ral's Project Fuck The World would do wonders for Boatmurdered. It does stop a flood that would have stranded Boatmurdered indefinitely, but also ends up killing dozens of Dwarves and a dog. The trauma of it all starts Sankis down her Mad Artist path, as immediately after she creates her first engraving; a dog burning to death.

comment
Too Dumb to Live: The dwarves, of course. An elephant kills a dwarf and starts to walk away, but then a bunch of other dwarves rush outside to loot the body, thus provoking the elephant and beginning the cycle anew. Former ruler "Emperor Sankis" gatinbomreknote The name seems to mean "Pantherwhip" spends a few months trying to drink from the magma river (actually the result of a bug), but snaps out of it and goes back to making horrifying engravings. Another dwarf somehow falls down a well and begins to die of thirst. All of his friends are able to get water around him while the stuck dwarf dehydrates. During the ruling of Sankis, one of his swordsdwarves tries to get a drink not by going to the well or drinking from the edge of the river but by wading out into the middle of the river and trying to drink from around him. Against all odds, he manages to survive. In character, one of the later overseers throws out the documentation of the fortress's various Pointless Doomsday Devices. This ends about how you'd expect it to end.

A few of these arise purely by accident, due to abandoned and re-purposed projects. "In looking for the lever to the farm, I found something that might be it nearby. It might also flood the siege workshop, but I'm not exactly sure why that would be a good thing." It does indeed, because originally, that's where the farm was planned.

Cloud Cuckoolander: Unknowing, a diminutive human booted out of his house by his mother and passes off as a dwarf only through his stature and beard. He's also an obsessed with Wizards and Warlocks fanboy who tries to recreate chambers from the game as rooms in the fortress and (unsurprisingly unsuccessfully) casts non-existent magic spells at enemies.

Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: At one point a force of kobolds shows up, takes one look at the place, and immediately leaves. StarkRavingMad ends his turn by paying off some guy to pretend he's him, digging an escape tunnel, and running into the night. The next LPer does a Call-Back to this by accidentally entering the fort through the same tunnel. It collapses behind him.

If You Die, I Call Your Stuff: StarkRavingMad loses a lot of dwarves to this because of Artificial Stupidity. Some dwarves died to an elephant siege. The rest of the dwarves were safe inside, but rushed out into the midst of the elephants to loot the corpses, and were promptly trampled to death themselves. More and more dwarves followed until StarkRavingMad has to lock them in so they wouldn't rush out to their deaths. Making matters worse, the elephants were actually trying to go away, but the dwarves running out aggro'd them again, resulting in them going back towards the fortress.

Disaster Dominoes: As expected of Dwarf Fortress, this is how Boatmurdered dies, with a chain reaction of murders that leads to hospital patients attacking each other in their beds while the fort burns down around them.

LARP: Unknowing plays his character as a Wizards and Warlocks-obsessed nerd who stumbled into Boatmurdered after being kicked out of his mother's house and was mistaken for an actual wizard. He tries to cast "spells" during battles, but laments that he fumbles all his attack rolls.

Got Volunteered: StarkRavingMad's starts his section as an innkeeper with no plans to change. Then a group of guards tell him he has the great honor of being appointed governor of Boatmurdered, and turning down such an honor would be ill-advised. He has a sneaking suspicion this has something to do with his recently discovering gold. Toward the tail end of mariguana's second reign, Amused Frog suggests that new "migrants" are actually adventuring parties who get kidnapped and Press-Ganged into joining the fortress.

Creepy Child: Dodók Sabrefrenzies, who while Boatmurdered was tearing itself apart in a haze of ash and flame, happily spent her days playing in the bonehoard. "In all cultures, both name and place will come to elicit hushed tones and ultimately grow to be synonymous with doom of the very soul, itself."

comment
True Art Is Angsty: In-Universe example: much of the art produced by the inhabitants of Boatmurdered focuses on elephants killing dwarfs, or the results of magma floods. Unknowing's character is trying to write the next fantasy epic between managing the fort. "The halls echoed with a cacophony of screams from the unspeakable atrocities the dwarves endured before succumbing to the sweet embrace of death. On the positive side, progress on my novel has increased exponentially." "That boy needs counseling."
