:By the way, at the moment I tend to one tutorial page like "learning DF", explaining how important things work, maybe with [[losing|fun]]-parts or an [[losing|fun]]-ending. And another one like "first fortress" helping the player through the first years, but not more. --[[User:Kami|Kami]] 12:20, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

thought -- it might be worth it to have, either as part of the "your first fortress" article or as a fifth category, a basic guide to burrows, military, and defensive planning. Those areas are complicated enough now that a new player is going to need some serious handholding, and I can see a *huge* amount of frustration hitting new players who get through their first year or two just fine, following all the guides, just to get half their fort slain by the first group of goblin ambushers that happens along.[[User:Calenth|Calenth]]
