Lightning the Blind Crossbow Champion by Silveron

Movie Description:

Lightning never strikes twice in the same place.

This is my crossbow dwarf that lost both eyes early on in his career. I think he was a few steps below skilled at the time of the accident. But thanks to his amazing dedication he is now a Champion. Just watch the results of countless hours of target practice...

Follow your dreams, you can achieve your goals... I'm living proof. - Ilral 'Lightning' Sarammebzuth

Important: If the movie appears blank or fails to play it is because it was recorded using a corrupt version of Dwarf Fortress. This is a known bug and is reported in the tracker, bug 2489. The DFMA administration is in the process of cleaning up these movies from the site; and hopes bay12games will fix the game functionality soon.

If you play it backwards he's shooting himself.
Also, this is awesome.

He fired one shot... BACKWARDS! How blind must you be to fire over your right shoulder! Awesome!

You should have named your dwarf 'Rudy'

Hah, I'm amazed that blindness actually does affect Dwarves like this. At least he found the right room to train in.

At first I was like.. why does he change target so fast?
Then I realized he was actually trying to hit a single target.

I laughed.

I was really hoping he'd hit that dumb peasant that wandered in. Anybody walking by past those fortifications better duck, too.


Do you only see a blank space instead of a play button?
