** As of 42.01 these stats are no longer useless, as you now can write books and perform art forms of all different kinds, of course you may not want to play as a bard, so this still applies in some cases.In fact recently some players have taken to dumping combat stats so they can be better bards! [[spoiler:Why fight dragons when you can gather an army of poets and take on the GODS?]]

** The community made more than a little noise over the fact that Tiny Pirate's Dwarf Fortress book was not published by a publisher as Brady or Prima, known for their game guides, but by O'Reilly, known for publishing technical manuals.

* HideYourChildren: Dwarf Fortress isn't squeamish about putting children and infants in terrible peril. Dwarven women will even give birth whilst in battle. Babies in fact make good shields for mothers who run into battle.

** Though if you're not careful, they can out breed everything around them. This is referred to as a catsplosion, and if allowed to continue can cause severe lag. And once it's started, culling them back down will make the cat's adopted dwarves ''very'' unhappy. Two favorite solutions are 1: to cage each kitten as it's born, then use it for meat, 2: to keep the breeding individuals in cages, eat the female kittens, and let the males roam about.

** However, as of DF2014, it seems dwarves instead become horrified by the deaths of anything with tags denoting some form of higher intelligence instead from goblins and other dwarves, down to freaking ''crundles''. Won't stop disciplined soldiers from bounding into a horde of goblins to bash their brains in though.
