|This article is about an older version of DF.
The Rest job is activated when a dwarf cannot do most normal tasks (like walking around). The dwarf with the rest job is either rescued and put in a bed, or moves very slowly to the bed leaving a very annoying trail of blood. In most cases, the dwarf will stay in the bed until the injuries are fully healed. A notable exception is the situation when the bed is located aboveground, the dwarf is capable of walking (has both legs uninjured), and the dwarves stay indoors order is issued.
