This actually happened.
I walked into a Goblin Dark Tower, I went to the very top, and there I saw dozens upon dozens of goblins.
I was scared, I knew I was going to die. So I ran down the stairs as fast I could. But then, the goblins started tumbling over me, and upon reading the announcement screen, I could hear that they were screaming in terror. This mass of goblins were more afraid of me than I was of them.
So I just stood to one side, and watched as they all fled to the base of the tower, and out the entrance.

I suppose I can't blame the goblins for running away. After all, I was an adventurer brandishing a sword, and they were all common folk living in a tower. They weren't soldiers or anything, just normal professions like bakers. I suppose I'd be pretty scared too if I was a goblin and I saw one of those sword wielding maniacs known as an adventurer, come into my home.

Still, it was a bit of a surprise.
I have since then, modded the goblins to have the no_fear tag, so they don't run away from you. But I just had to make a comic about that surprising moment that's still in the game to this day.

You've got to love the realistic standards Dwarf Fortress sets for fantasy tropes.
