Liberal Crime Squad was my gateway into Dwarf Fortress. As it got here from the identical creators, that’s not so unusual, and so they have a number of frequent threads. LCS is extra overtly satirical, as your revolutionaries battle a right-wing US authorities by proselytising, blackmailing, and infrequently kidnapping and torturing residents of one in all its cities.
