You are Urist Twelfthbay, the moe personification of Dwarf Fortress, and you are a short, sturdy creature fond of drink and industry. Right now, you're grimly keeping your balance on an explosion-propelled space rock that's hurtling through the cluttered hyperdimensional void at cataclysmically unsafe speeds.

Praying to Armok that you won't crash into anything hard enough to turn you all into chunky meat sauce would be futile, since your plan to arrive at your destination does, in fact, involve crashing into it hard enough to turn you all into chunky meat sauce. Heck, the very act of STOPPING your hollowed-out asteroid REQUIRES that you crash into something with enough force to turn you all into chunky meat sauce, while steering to the left or right requires that you detonate one of the munition piles cobbled together on either side of your makeshift vehicle.

And here you are, riding this deathtrap to the nearest stranded adventurer, who's probably just sitting on a floating island not that much larger than your hollowed-out asteroid. You ARE intent on helping her- although now that you think about it, rescue missions normally fail if the rescuers accidentally vaporize their target and her immediate surroundings upon landing.

... see, THIS is why you try to avoid working with people who both agree with your suicidal dwarfy plans AND have the power to make your plans a horrific reality.

Your awed stargazing is rudely interrupted when a fist-sized piece of debris smashes into the 'ground' a few feet away, making you jump.

"Get in cover, idiot!" Tiff roars from somewhere underneath your feet. "We got incoming!"

Another rock nearly takes off your head as you dive down into the hollowed-out asteroid, landing in a main chamber of sorts. Inside, the screwy 'gravity' is strangely stable, unaffected by your high speeds, and there's a twisted sort of normality going on. Doomgirl's got her face up against a hole in the wall, as excited as a car-riding dog faced with an open window, while Tiff continues bashing her Engineer aspect's trademark wrench against the wall, her expression grim.

What immediately grabs your attention is how there's a big gaping hole where the back wall should be, allowing you an unobstructed view of the hyperdimensional void and the madly-whirling stars in the 'sky.' Your summoned dwarves, of course, continue mining out the Seganium like there's nothing strange about this at all.

"We lost a good chunk of the asteroid when the main thrusters went off," the Team Fortress says without preamble (although you can't see how ANYONE could call a haphazard pile of one-time-use explosives "main thrusters" with a straight face), yelling over the roaring winds. "And as if that wasn't enough, we're off-course!"

"Oh FUCK yeah!" Doomgirl roars. "More monsters to play with!"

You scurry over to a hole in the wall and peer out, your blood running cold. A pair of void sharks- pitch-black, blank-eyed, and filled with more teeth than you've got problems- are undulating through the void and gaining on your ride, drawn by the mutilated corpse of one of their own that's still just- sort of sitting on the roof, attracting every predator in the vicinity with the scent of blood.

Crap.

"They're huge. I want to kill them," Doomgirl states like it's the most reasonable thing in the world, twitching sporadically in what you now know to be excitement. To your growing alarm, she shoves the barrel of a particularly nasty-looking weapon into the window, the grizzled marine giggling like a schoolgirl. "Let's go fight them!"

We don't know if they even KNOW that we're here, you retort, shoving aside Doomgirl's gun (and ignoring her warning growl). For all you know, they were drawn by the noise, or the bloody corpse attached to the hood of your ramshackle rock car, or-

((Or Arfoire sent them,)) Neptune interjects cheerily, the goddess's voice echoing out from somewhere inside you. ((She's always like, 'monsters rule!' and crams them into CDs and stuff! She's gotta catch a better hobby!))

"The bloody corpse attached to our /what/?!" Tiff whirls on a completely unrepentant Doomgirl. "I thought you were going to get rid of that!"

You roll your eyes and leave them to their brewing argument, clambering up onto the 'roof' before they even know you're gone- although you need a moment to get your bearings (and, you know, not plummet to your death). And wasn't Neptune going to NOT talk whenever Doomgirl's around?

((It's okay! I don't think she remembers who I am just by my voice alone!)) the representative personification of Sega stage-whispers. ((And even if she does, she can't hurt me when I'm in you!))

... yeah, fat lot of help that's going to be when she rips YOU to shred. Filing that under 'shit to deal with later,' you dash over to the bloody void shark corpse and give it a /shove/, praying that its kind is cannibalistic. With most of its mass depleted, the monster's body doesn't need a whole lot of force to get going, spinning off the asteroid with surprising ease. (You make a note to yourself NOT to jump too high when your ride's moving).

For once, your prayers are answered. Immediately, one of the void sharks veers off to intercept the bloody meal, misshapen maw tearing into the cadaver with speed borne of either gnawing hunger or horrific gluttony. Too bad the other void shark doesn't even /look/ at the free meal, and you're reasonably certain that its eyes narrow at the attempt to distract it.

((Jeepers! Did you turn this one down at prom or something?))

... you really wish she'd just let you stare down rapidly oncoming death in peace and quiet.

You hear Tiff clamber up besides you. "Did it work? Are they gone or SHIT!" she hisses, eyes wide.

"What?" Doomgirl growls, clambering up to stand next to your other side. "What the hell's wrong with yoooOH!" Of course SHE'D sound happy.

Almost contemptuously, the swimming monstrosity rams its nose into the asteroid, nearly ruining your footing and VERY narrowly avoiding ruining the asteroid's trajectory- although a large chunk of space rock goes spinning off. You're going to have to deal with this, and deal with this /now/, other

Tiff's costume seems to swirl into multicolored lights before settling on some sort of Soldier's uniform, but you stop her right quick- you all need to save ammo, because knowing THIS place, you'll have to fight some jerk or other the moment you reach your destination!

She nods tersely and swaps back into her Engineer's outfit, and you turn to Doomgirl to tell her the same- except 1) she's no longer standing next to you, and 2) there's absolutely no need.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYTVIWnj6sg

"More for me!" Doomgirl howls, already leaping off the edge of your hollowed-out asteroid. "Come to me, big mama!" Not expecting its prey to be so goddamned stupid, the void shark rears back out of instinct instead of snapping the marine out of the air, caught between surprise and murderous intent.

That gives your ally just enough time to smash its snout with her fists.

The impact actually snaps the monster's head to the side, but it's pulled back as Doomgirl actually /grabs it by the throat/ and continues pummeling the void shark with her free fist, the damage all out of proportion to her smaller size.

"Rip!" she roars, punching out a tooth. "Tear!" Her fist plunges into the flesh, mere void-hardened armor plating apparently no match for those god hands, and the monster screams in enraged pain, thrashing in midair. Right- this IS the adventurer who demolished the /last/ void shark from the inside out, after all.

((All in favor of just pointing her at Arfoire, say aye!))

For once, you're sort of in agreement with Neptune on this.

((I mean, look at her!)) she adds in amazement. ((She's kicking that void shark around like it's some sort of puppy! This should count as animal cruelty!))

... oh. Oh!

Struck by a sudden thought, you dash forward, ignoring Tiff's surprised yelp as you pass by her turrets (and Neptune's frantic questions). Muttering feverishly to yourself, you pull out some of the spare items you'd had lying around your inventory, look up to Doomgirl and the void shark's battle, gauge their relative positioning, and start slapping various mechanisms and parts together, willing yourself to hurry up and praying that you chose the right location-

It's done. No time to second-guess yourself. You scream out to Doomgirl, telling her to chuck the void shark towards you- and although it takes a few moments, she actually /does/, punching her way around the doomed monster before bashing it from behind and propelling it your way.

Luck smiles upon your harebrained scheme, which reinforces your belief that she's both blind and dumb.

"Hey! We're not done yet!" Doomgirl roars, casting around in vain for her opponent. "Where'd it go, dammit!?"

Ignoring her for the moment, you unhook the cage from your trap and nearly buckle under the weight; only your allies' intervention, arms around your shoulders, stops you from getting crushed by the darn thing.

"Mother of god, don't tell me," Tiff mutters, squinting down at the cage in your shaking arms. Giddy with exhilaration, you put it down and flip your braids back over your shoulder, a feral, toothy grin on your face.

Yeah, you confirm, slapping the side of the impossibly small cage containing the impossibly large creature. You dig through your pockets and come up with a prepared meat biscuit of some sort, shoving it in between the bars. Once the training process ends, this one's going to be all yours.

Isn't that right, Carp?

((What?! Can't you at least give it a better name?)) Neptune whines. ((Like... Uristnep! Or Nep Jr.!))

Nope, not nearly fearsome enough. You're sticking with Carp.

((Awww, Uriiiist-))

For all its bark AND bite, the void shark doesn't take very long to train. TAMING it will be harder and will require just a little bit more time, but that's really not going to be a problem if you're going to be living in the hyperdimensional void for an extended period of time.

... either way, you're a little hesitant to let it out of its cage. Most animals sort of wander around the fort and its exterior, but if THIS thing wanders off into the void, you can't exactly waltz up there and drag it back to your 'territory.'

Doomgirl's still sulking. "I wanted to see what it drops," she grumps, crossing her arms in a manner that WOULD be petulant, if not for the countless layers of blood caked on her body.

"Later, later," Tiff soothes. She turns to you, adjusting her goggles. "'Fraid we've got a bigger problem right now. First, we're kinda off-course, and second, this baby right here-" she pats the surface of the asteroid "-can't take much more punishment. Any more collisions like that and we won't HAVE a ride."

Aren't asteroids supposed to be a little less flimsy?

"This one's got more holes than a honeycomb, Urist," the Team Fortress shoots back. "It ain't exactly the epitome of sturdy, if you catch my drift. It's a miracle if we'll still be able to steer this thing!"

... well, looks like you've got a decision to make.

"This was a terrible idea," Tiff grumbles, squinting down at the floating island.

What's she talking about? This was a GREAT idea.

Doomgirl sniffs. "It was a shit idea," she grumbles, still sore about her stolen kill.

Oh, get off it already! There'll be plenty more things to kill in the future, you'd stake your life on it.

Tiff points down to the island, where the thinnest sliver of a shaking and crying adventurer- Thravar- can be seen from the thicket of trees she'd hid herself in. "Doesn't look like she's willing to come out to ME."

Better than slamming into an island at full speed, ain't it? This way, you actually managed to /park/.

((Yeah! Don't listen to them, Urist! This was a great idea!))

... oh gods, now you're convinced it WAS a terrible idea.

Well, okay, look- strapping Carp onto the asteroid worked out better than you'd thought. Trained animals don't pull things back in your fortress, and the void shark /had/ been reluctant, but you'd managed to jury-rig a way to do it, mostly through liberal application of brute force and more Seganium threads.

That, and getting Carp to start moving, was the /easy/ part. The HARD part was getting your void shark not to go after every living creature it came across. Like other void sharks! And those darn will-o'-wisps. And, if Doomgirl gets too close, human meat.

... and other adventurers. Like Thravar, who you came here to save and instead cornered using an asteroid /bigger/ than the floating island she'd been camping on, and also a monster she knows is REALLY BAD NEWS.

"Go away!" Thravar yells- her shaking voice is a little deeper than you'd imagined. And even at this distance- you can't even see her, just the glimpses you catch when the void shark stops snuffling at the trees, straining at the leash- you can't stop feeling like your skin's crawling. "Leave me alone! I'm sick and tired of this- this horrible, horrible place! I've been fighting for days on end, and I can't take it anymore!"

You take another look around the island she's been camped on. It's peppered with the yellowed white bones of what must have been her minions- they're mostly humanoid, and they're all decaying at a startling rate, slowly sinking into the ground as you watch, leaving behind nothing but rapidly-fading fantasy-style armor. A few scraps of flickering light are all that remain of her opponents, MORE of those darn will-o'-wisps that nearly claimed Mojang's life when you first arrived.

The void shark snaps its jaws at the trees, and you hear the adventurer scrabbling as she backs deeper into cover. "Stop that! Stop poking at me! Leave me alone! I don't want to come with the likes of /you/!"

((Aww, she's just scared, Urist. Let me talk to her!)) In your head, Neptune puffs herself up in pride. ((I'll sort her out lickety-split!))

"Actually... lemme take a crack at it," Tiff says suddenly. She's squinting down at the glade in slight suspicion, frowning as something occurs to her. "Those trees aren't natural. I got a bad feeling, here."

You glance over at Doomgirl, half-expecting her to say something, but she remains uninterested in the proceedings.

... right now, you just sort of want to go home.

It depends on the type of change! If it's really drastic, like a sequel or a spinoff, or even a big update, then it'd probably kick in the next time that adventurer goes and clears a dungeon, gaining an upgrade.

Urist is sort of an outlier, since a lot of her changes affect the dwarves' quality of life and are more incremental (updates that pop very rarely). In her case, it's more gradual, and on top of that, her dungeon-clear upgrades have been utilities and stuff like that.

>>43941719
It's only certain kinds of actions that cause Neptunization, and a lot of them are related to combat! Just acting on a dumb Neptune idea has a much, much, much lower chance of causing Neptunization.
