Messengers are an assigned occupation at your site. They can be assigned in the Locations and Occupations menu (l), and will act as liaisons with your holdings and conquered sites. When a messenger has been assigned, they can be sent on missions from the Civilizations screen (c) to request (r) dwarves from your holdings and conquered sites to become citizens of your fortress. Only dwarves that are considered historical figures may be summoned to join your fortress in this way.


  • Messengers can be distracted from missions by other jobs/needs.Bug:10795
