    It s the only one of its kind as far as I know, so if you want a book on Dwarf Fortress you don t really have many options.Luckily, it s also a good book I never played before, and this book helped be quite a lot.There seem to be two main sections to the book The first half roughly is a hand holding, step by step tutorial that gets you up and running The second half islike a bunch of guides on various topics The setup works really well.If you re interested in DF after playi

    Dwarf Fortress belongs to a class of games that are unapologetically complex in terms of depth and game mechanics Among these games, it probably has the most steep learning curve of all, so steep it s nearly unimaginable that anyone could learn it without a teacher or a book It is, however, an incredible fun and rewarding experience, once you ve got a grisp of enough of the mechanics.If you enjoy games like Civilization or Nethack and don t cower from spending a weekend on learning a

    Interesting guide to playing Dwarf Fortress, interspersed with nice little comics telling DF tales Could do with a little less how to guide and a littleexploring the generated stories Boatmurdered et al get mentioned, but not discussed Also, 30% of the book is just appendices, mostly tables repeated from the main text Captures the oddity that is this game pretty well though.

    Dwarf Fortress Seriously one of the most complex games ever coded This book is a bit outdated now as far as functionality but it does still have some good insight on the basics Prepare for all of the death umm vampires umm Fun you could ever want in a game I give it four beards.

    This book does what it says and does it very very well For me Dwarf Fortress was impenetrable but I really wanted to see what it was all about In around 10 20 hours with this book and the game side by side I was ready to go and do most of the stuff myself It s well written and humorous to boot.
