The Dwarf Fortress interface is made up of several different parts besides the main game area.

  • A: Combat, Hunting, and Sparring reports. Press r to view these reports. A red C means combat, a green H means hunting, and a blue S means sparring.
  • B: The game Menu.
  • C: The number of idle dwarves. This may appear at the top right instead of bottom right.
  • D: The z-level you are currently viewing.

Above z-level counter column, at top right, there is a moon phase indicator.
