This article is about an older version of DF.

Dwarves will sometimes make friends, and this gives them a happy thought. The likelihood of two dwarves becoming friends increases as both spend time socializing instead of working. But be warned, although Dwarves get happy thoughts from making friends and talking with them, they will become quite sad if a friend dies. This is a common source of fun.

Thus effort must be made to avoid any socializing, there are several ways to do this: The first and hardest option is to ensure no one ever idles. The second is to designate a HUGE meeting area, so large that idlers still wont be anywhere near each other. The best way however is to provide everyone with a personal bedroom. When this is combined with the absence of a designated meeting area, idle dwarves will spend their time in their bedroom, alone.
