So I started playing Dwarf Fortress again

So as always, when I start up a new world, I go through the Legends file and look at all the weird stuff the game has cooked up for this world’s history.

There was a book called “My Friend Gatshi Sharkblazed” which was written by some necromancer named Gatshi Sharkblazed and was an autobiography all about Gatshi Sharkblazed and I was like man this Gatshi Sharkblazed person is kind of full of themselves, so I looked up what else Gatshi Sharkblazed did.

She left home at a young age and went to the north, and “tamed polar bears across The Fleshy Blizzard".When she was 23 she became obsessed with her own mortality and tried to extend it by any means necessary, and at 27 became an apprentice under some other necromancer and soon after became immortal.

Then she lived in some tower with 4 other necromancers and started writing books, specifically one 80 years after attaining immortality called “Choose Mortality”

She continued to write books but stopped 40 years prior to my game starting. The file doesn’t mention a death, so she’s still around, she just hasn’t done anything in 40 years. The other necromancers in her tower still write books and shit, but she just sorta sits there. The last book she wrote before stopping is another autobiography called “Gatshi Sharkblazed Bright”

Sometimes I wish I could draw because I would totally read a comic about Gatshi Sharkblazed
