There is an evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful.

I think it looks more like a toilet bowl or colonoscopy. But never blinking eye is far less disturbing.

I really think that the label Siberian bear hunting armour is a euphemism at best, if not a smoke screen....

I'm pretty sure I saw that bear-hunting armor somewhere before. Smokescreen indeed.

Seventy members of an Islamist sect who have been living in an underground bunker without heat or sunlight for nearly a decade have been discovered living on the outskirts of the city of Kazan in Russia, local media reported.

The sect members included 20 children, the youngest of whom had just turned 18 months. Many of them were born underground and had never seen daylight until the prosecutors discovered their dwelling on August 1 and sent them for health checks.

A 17-year-old girl turned out to be pregnant.

I'm not even sure how you work this on into a game, unless it's the origin story for the dwarves or drow in your DF game. But it's real-life, and it's weird. So here you are.
