Welcome to this wiki! Dwarf Fortress rapidly becomes more complicated, and we're always glad to have new writers.
Since we prefer that you try to follow our wiki's standards, we've made a list of basic guidelines. This is a template.
- To let us know who you are, please sign your posts on discussion pages by typing
- Never, ever, put a question mark in the title of a page. This is not an undoable mistake. The rule list elaborates.
- When making comments on a talk page, use one more colon before each line in your comment than was used in the comment you reply to. Put exactly one empty line between comments by different users but do not use blank lines inside of a comment. If your comment has no indents, use
<br>after each line.
- Avoid making many small edits to a page. Instead, try to make one large edit. This makes the history of the page a lot easier to read.
- Don't edit the user page of another user. If you want to tell them something, add the comment to their talk page.
- If you put a comment at the bottom of a talk page with section headers, you've probably put it in a section. Don't put things in the wrong sections. If necessary, create a section.
- Most importantly, read and follow the rules. Really. Read them.

an interesting item
This is a basalt ring. All craftsmanship is of the highest quality. it is encircled with bands of cedar. It _menaces with spikes of_ basalt and "cave spider silk."
Thanks for the info

My jeweler has claimed a still and is using a turqoise stone... to brew artifact beer?
Your edits to Chain mail
As shown at  you made several edits in a row... it is better if you either mark most of them as "minor" or use the "show preview" button repeatedly until you are happy with your work before hitting "save page". Crotchety wikistalkers like me don't like seeing so many edits to the same page from the same person in the recent changes list...
Having said that, hook in and improve the site!GarrieIrons 21:11, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

Have you tested that rain fills arbitrary depressions in the ground? Are you sure what you've seen is not just for murky pools and similar? VengefulDonut 06:06, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

- I don't think rainfall is usually enough to fill an empty pool, in most environments. I will do better, I will make two dwarf made pools with grass and stone floors, and test if they will retain water in a tropical environment.
