Dwarf Fortress is a single-player fantasy game. You can control a dwarven outpost or an adventurer in a randomly generated, persistent world.

The world is randomly generated with distinct civilizations spanning over 1000 years of detailed history, dozens of towns, hundreds of caves and regions with various wildlife. Command your dwarves as they search for wealth in the mountain. Play an adventurer and explore, quest for glory or seek vengeance. Extended ASCII character set rendered in 16 colors (including black) as well as 8 background colors (including black). Although Dwarf Fortress is still in a work in progress, many features have already been implemented.

Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.

I'm thinking of making a group to properly archive epic fortresses and the happenings within them. I've got quite a few stories myself, that I've documented. One involves a "Werecamel."

Once you figure some of it out, it peaks your interest to where you love it, and want to keep learning. Eventually, it becomes a tolerable level of hard. Sometimes it becomes easy (but not for long, for FUN things start happening). If you have any specific questions, feel free to message me as well! Good luck to you my friend.
