Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Chimeras are fanciful creatures which are merely the stuff of legends. They do not actually exist, appearing only in engravings as the fancy of artists.

Some dwarves like chimeras for their terrifying features.

D4Dwarf.png This article or section has been rated D for Dwarf. It may include witty humour, not-so-witty humour, bad humour, in-jokes, pop culture references, and references to the Bay12 forums. Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Chimeras are known for their uncanny ability to write stories that are intentionally poor to the point of humor. Their most famous works speak of warriors fighting the Hidden Fun Stuff and of researchers recovering unusual forms of smelted pitchblende.

Half-lion, half-reptile and half-goat. That equals six halves of pure evil!
