Will your dwarves die of thirst?
However injured dwarves will drink water, and water only. In such a case the dwarf will eventually die.
Are you sure your biome has no water? Just because none is on the surface doesn't mean there isn't any to be had. You may have:
- Aquifers. Simply digging down may yield an infinte water source.
- An Ocean. You will have to desalinate the water by running it through a screw pump, but it'll do.
- Ice. You will need a source of magma to melt it, but it can be done.
- Murky pools. Murky pools are surface ponds that will refill when it rains, and often dry out over summer.
If your settlement doesn't have any of the above, you're kind of screwed. As long as you can keep your alcohol production up your dwarves won't die, but you may have to say goodbye to any and every dwarf that gets injured.
