23a:Murky pool

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This article is about an older version of DF.

Murky pools are small pools of water which can be found outdoors on most maps. Dwarves with the fishing job active will attempt to fish in them. During summer in sufficiently hot climates, murky pools can dry out.

Drinking from a murky pool will give dwarves an unhappy thought. Dwarves will not normally drink from murky pools if they can at all help it; they will prefer to remain thirsty instead of drinking from a murky pool, holding out for the hope that well water or some alcohol will be produced in the mean time. However, if there are no other water sources that present themselves, dwarves will eventually force themselves to drink from a murky pool when they become very thirsty.
