This article is about an older version of DF.

A Cliff is an area of land that does not have a slope to the next z-axis level, jutting up from the earth with a somewhat vertical face. These cliffs can be as short as two z-levels, but depending on the area, can reach heights much greater than 10!

While you do not need a cliff to build a mighty dwarven fortress, it can be a familiar appearance to one who played in the old 2d version. Finding a place with a decent amount of cliffs while also containing a forest or farmable soil can be a bit tedious, as the majority of cliffs are found in mountainous areas, where trees don't grow and farmable land must be made from manipulating water sources.
