Default Any Dwarf Fortress geeks here?

November 23rd, 2007, 19:13
I just started dabbling in Dwarf Fortress, and I'm hooked. It took me about one evening to figure out the extreme, very, total basics, and yesterday I got far enough to accidentally drown my dwarves in a horrible irrigation accident (it turns out that water runs downhill). I think I know what I did wrong so I can start over with more luck. Maybe.

I.e., once past the insanely irritating UI where sometimes - means up, sometimes u means up, and sometimes up arrow means up, I'm starting to have fun. Without the wiki, I wouldn't have a prayer, though.

Any suggestions for a total newbie, anyone?
