    Let us discuss the psychology and behavior of Fortress Dorfs. I'm planning on running a game sometime where the PCs will have to seek refuge within a Dorfen fortress.
    I've already decided on the appearance. Sickly pale bastards who dye their beards certain colours depending on occupation. If it's civilian, it's a long, straight beard. If it's military, it's a big bushy beard. They constantly seem to be in drunken stupors and are covered in blood, vomit and mud. Military dorfs commonly seem to lack socks.
    How do they act, however?

    Entirely single-minded, but easily distracted. Completely anti-social unless socializing is the task at hand.

    Upon the death of a comrade, they must immediately retrieve his socks as evidence of death.

    Or their gloves, if their socks are missing due to sparing.

    And only amongst themselves. They will talk at each other with all the fervor of a pitched battle, but will completely ignore outsiders in their midst unless they are pissed off by the theft of a sock or the murder of a cat or the like.

    Why do socks fly off during sparring anyway?

    Seriously, my barracks is always littered with socks that I can't do anything with because someone still owns them but the owner won't pick up.

    Only the leader will talk to your group, and even then he'll finish whatever tasks he wishes to beforehand.

    Wrestlers wrestle away one another's clothing. Dwarven training is, fittingly, latently homo-erotic.

    When wrestling, dorfs grab limbs. I guess socks just come off exceptionally quickly when feet are grabbed.

    They are massively strong, each dwarf being able to carry a caged elephant or solid gold throne up fourteen flights of stairs. However, they are intensely afraid of any and all wild animals and will either flee or attack at the merest sight of them.

    Fishermen are the most honoured in their society, for they risk horrific death by carp every day for the good of the fortress.

    Have one dorf "fond of humans for their haunting\enchanting\beguiling voices".

    The moment he sees the party he instantly cheers up and begins to follow them around asking them to speak (or moo), maybe he'll try to make one into a pet.

    To quote the DF Wiki...

    "Sanity is not a right, it is a privileged, one that must be EARNED."

    Case point in which Two of my Champions were sparring, one (an Axe Dwarf) having been with the fort for 8 of the 10 years and been one of my most trusted soldiers. (When a Goblin got knocked into a Pond in the middle of a fight during a siege, he fucking dove in after it and mermurdered that son of a bitch with his axe.)

    So I check up on the barracks, and see some blood, and two soldiers who are lying there on the ground. Both of them have a mangled leg. I put 2 & 2 together and figure out that they were sparring, and check their inventories. AxeDwarf Rakust was fine, just had varying Steel Quality equipment. Turns out though the other one, my Spear Dwarf, decided it would be a great idea to go pick up a Masterwork Adamantine Spear and practice with it.

    Now here's where it get's funny. When my civilians rush in to help out, they go over, hoist up the good for nothing Spear Dwarf, and completely ignore the wounded 40+ kills Veteran who's one of the oldest soldier's in the fort. They just leave him there. I try to build a bed where he's stuck on the floor, but nope, no one helps him, some asshole actually sleeps in it.
    (To be continued)

    The worst part is that every day they would feed him and bring him water, but absolutely refused to put him in a hospital bed. Eventually after a Season, he finally snapped and went Berserk...while still lying helpless on the floor. The barracks swarmed down upon him like an angry mob curb stomping a Hobo, and promptly stabbed out his right eye, broke his arm, mangled his foot on his mangled leg, and then cut off his head. .... and a Dog ran off with his one good leg.

    All while the Spearsdwarf sat in his bed just 4 tiles away and watched. He watched the ordeal for two seasons. He'd been watching the whole time. I think he got satisfaction from it too. He already had managed to heal his leg to broken status, and I imagine he'll be good as new by next year.

    An interesting note before I go. Good ol "HELP ME, PLEASE, ANYONE?" Rakust the Axe Dwarf, he had 5 dogs, and no friends. He was devout to his god Madush the keeper of Fortresses, and his animals. He was a Dwarf who devoted his entire life to upholding the principles of Dwarven Society and ensuring the safety of everyone. Fucking Iton Beardmist the untrustworthy Clam of fortifications? Fucker has 8 friends, and is passing acquaintances with half the fort.

    oh, and Rakust's Corpse has been sitting there in the Barracks for half a season now.

    I love dorf fortress, even if I can´t play it to save my life.

    Last time, I didn´t know how to make a fort and my Dwarves starved to death. I-I just can´t turn on the game anymore and stare at their dead corpses, rooting and rooting...

    You pick a spot with tree's and mountains, and usually there is a dirt layer you will dig into before you get deeper into the mountain. Depending on how thick this layer is, you could set up a small farming production here.

    Usually I dig into the mountain, and then in the area of loam outside my fort, I set up an underground farm so I don't have to irrigate.

    The one thing that they love above all else is a really really really nice dining room.

    All the dorfs live in the worst kind of squalor, but they have a fucking beautiful dining room engraved with pictures of dwarves talking with dwarves, with furniture encrusted with gemstones.

    Their obsession with dining rooms is such that, even if multiple loved ones have recently died, a dorf can still be outright cheerful as long as they have access to a sufficiently decorated dining room.

    But this might instead be a veneration of all things food-related, as dwarven civilizations have been known to demand upwards of $5,000 for a set of ten well-cooked meals.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that. We shall PIERCE THE DEPTHS WITH OUR PICKS!

    Not every area has "hidden fun stuff". Only mountains and even then only specific regions of mountains. You can set your game to display the cyan & or whatever it is that shows the location of adamantine+demonpits. The adamantine doesn't actually surround the pits (which I don't like, it's supposed to be holding the demons in) but instead radiates in straight lines in 3d. So you can find adamantine several levels above and a dozen squares away from a demon pit.
