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

The Objects status screen contains four tabs (Artifacts, Symbols, Named objects, and Written content), each of which is a list of special, named, or unique items.

Each list entry contains the following columns (from left to right):

  • An image of the item.
  • The name of the item and its translation.
  • Buttons to go to the item's location or open its item sheet, if applicable.
  • The entity that claims the object, if applicable.

Artifacts tab[edit]

Main article: Legendary artifact

Symbols tab[edit]

Symbols are items given to nobles in the Nobles and administrators screen. They may be artifacts, or they may be other items, but will always be named (giving a noble a symbol includes naming the item if not already named).

Named objects tab[edit]

This tab lists all named, non-artifact items in your fortress. This may include non-artifact items also in the Symbols Tab.

Written content tab[edit]

Main article: Book

Written content never has a claimant, so the last column will be empty. Typically, the work's translated name will be the same as its original name, with a few exceptions. The list will only include original works, not copies. While the majority of written content will be scrolls and quires/codices, other objects, such as slabs containing the secrets of life and death can be included.
