v0.34:Sphere

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

Deities, demons, and megabeasts are aligned in spheres. A sphere is an aspect where a being has influence. Civilizations have sphere alignments as well.

[edit] Understanding spheres

A being such as a deity, demon or megabeast may come to represent or epitomize certain things like emotions, qualities, terrain, and items. They are called "spheres". As an example from real-world mythology, the Greek goddess Athena is goddess in the "spheres" of wisdom, warfare, handicrafts and reason.

Gods and adored megabeasts can grant secrets related to their spheres. In unmodded DF, this means that death gods can teach the secret of life and death to worshipers, turning them into necromancers.

Dwarves and other creatures will come to worship certain "powerful beings" and as such will follow that religion, and have a relationship with that "deity"

As extracted from the string dump, the spheres available are unchanged from 40d; their relationships with each other may also be unchanged.
