v0.31:Fortress name

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

Every fortress has a name. Sometimes you forget what that name is. If you are playing in Fortress Mode, press z to look at your status screen. The name of your fortress should be displayed at the top left part of the screen.

You can choose the name of your own fortress during the Embark process. When you reach the stage where you are deciding on your founder's skills and starting items, press Shift+F to choose your fortress name. You will be given a semi-random name automatically. Fortress names are often compounds of two dwarven words. You may craft a more elaborate fortress name than what's made by the name generator.
