Welcome to I Play Dwarf Fortress – (And You Can Too!) This tutorial is written for those who have little to no knowledge of Dwarf Fortress, but you can use it as a handy how-to for various things. This is designed to be played along with a supplied save game (available in section 2.0) so you can follow along the tutorial the entire time!
