Now, we've done a big ol' Dwarf Fortress Tutorial link before. Which was all very well, but they were video tutorials which are trickier to actually reference in play. Which is lucky that I picked up TinyPirate's series of DF tutorials for total newbs from Qt3 which he's finally completed. Full index to all thirteen (count 'em!) DF tutorials beneath the cut.
The Complete and Utter Newby Tutorial for Dwarf Fortress

- Post-tutorial Dwarf Fortress links and resources
And I think that should avoid us ever having to do such an amount of hard-work ourselves, yes? Get to it, stunties.
