This article is about an older version of DF.

The mayor noble arrives once your population reaches 50 and you have completed enough diverse tasks (see below), changing your fortress from a Village to a Town. Your sheriff will also be promoted to captain of the guard at this point. The mayor will also make guild mandates if he receives complaints from guild leaders (if said workers are not given enough work to do).

The presence of the mayor is also required in order to permit the arrival of the Count. Once you are eligible to have a Mayor, the Goblins will begin to attack your fortress.

In order to trigger the arrival of the Mayor, you must complete a sufficient quantity of "diverse tasks" during the previous year, consisting of at least 4 of the following:

  • 25 crafting jobs
  • 25 metal-related jobs
  • 25 wood-related jobs
  • 10 gem jobs
  • 25 stone jobs
  • 25 food jobs
