  • Template:QualityTemplate:Av Fortifications are arrow slits used in the defense of your fortress. They are probably most commonly used along the outside walls of your fortress so that marksdwarves and siege engines can fire at enemies from within your walls.

Fortifications allow ranged attacks (including siege weapons), fireballs/breath, water, magma, steam, etc. to pass through. Archers firing through

  • I sent a party of seven dwarves explore the ruins of the Pearlrim outpost, a fort that was destroyed by a gigantic monster in the last century. Every room is filled with metal forges and statues. Perhaps they were too heavy to take by the survivors and rescue teams? It's kinda odd that no other kind of workshop is here though. Not even a stone carving one, for all these statues. They must have really loved making statues. Some of them depicts creature I never heard of. Elephant men? Crab folk? ....Mud men??? A lot of them show a forgotten beast though. Kinda odd, knowing how the fort fell. I wonder if they somehow knew what was about happen.

Dwarf Fortress Stone Carving (2024)


What is the difference between stone cutting and Stone carving in Dwarf Fortress? ›

Stone cutting is making things at a mason's workshop (I've confirmed this) masonry is building buildings with stone I assume (I haven't confirmed that or any of the following), Stone carving is stone crafts I would assume, and engraving is smoothing and engraving walls.

How to start Stone carving? ›

Start carving by cutting parallel rows about an inch apart in the stone, creating ridges and grooves. Hold the chisel at an angle that just bites into the stone, but not so steeply that it will bury the tool.

Metamorphic: Metamorphic rocks are formed when a sedimentary layer is exposed to heat and pressure and undergoes a chemical change which forms a new crystalline material.

What do you make with stone in Dwarf Fortress? ›

The normal way to deal with excess stone is to make something out of it that does compact (mugs, furniture, stone blocks if you still want to build with it). Stockpile em out of the way, or just ignore them for now. Eventually, you will make enough stuff out of rock that they'll use up all the rocks laying around.

Stonecutting is also more efficient than crafting for certain recipes. Crafting stairs is more efficient with a stonecutter than a crafting table, as 6 full blocks are crafted into 4 stairs, while stonecutter yields 1 stair per full block.

What is the hardest stone to carve? ›

The hardest stone frequently carved is granite, at about 8 on the Mohs scale. It is the most durable of sculptural stones and, correspondingly, an extremely difficult stone to work. Basalt columns, being even harder than the granite, are less frequently carved.

What is the most valuable material in Dwarf Fortress? ›

Heavy metals are also great for blunt weapons (basically just silver). Copper is very valuable (for weapons/armor) if no iron (or little iron) exists, but it's better as an alloy. Iron is most valuable as steel but still valuable regardless (for weapons/armor and magma safe material).

How do you turn stone into mud in Dwarf Fortress? ›

You can muddy a stone tile to turn it functionally identical soil. It just needs water on it. Run a river through the planned location or dump some water with buckets from a z-level above. Place stairs going up one tile, may need a single tile of floor as well on the top part.

What makes Dwarf Fortress so special? ›

Dwarf fortress is amazing because it doesn't use randomness. Random generation is only used to make the world's starting conditions and the unique personalities of every living creature, and from there everything proceeds based of something that happened. In addition, dwarf fortress emphasizes time management.

What is the difference between smoothing and engraving dwarf fortress? ›

The stone carver generally uses a shallower stroke at this point in the process, usually in combination with a wooden mallet. Eventually the sculptor has changed the stone from a rough block into the general shape of the finished statue.
