Is this everything thats good about PC gaming? Seriously, its free, complicated, amazing, unforgiving, funny, unique. Try it! I use the Mayday tileset (to quote PCGamer, the original looks like you keyboard sneezed); May Green and a good newbie guide is here; The Complete and Utter Newby Tutorial for Dwarf Fortress – Part 1: “WTF?” « After Action Reporter and trust me, you will need a guide. The combat dynamic is so detailed, all creatures have bone/fat/skin etc so you can break a bone without breaking skin. In PCGamer there was a funny quote for a developed where they discovered an executioner dwarf who had broken both his arms, in order to kill people he used his teeth and carried the dead people's limbs around in his teeth for years. Please play it!
