what am i doing wrong?[edit]

My loom is not being build - it says "needs weaving". Doesnt that normally mean its waiting for a weaver to finish the job? I have now weaving activated on several dwarfes, still nothing. --Koltom 22:33, 11 February 2008 (EST)

built a second loom, was done in no time. removed the other. Can only imagine access was blocked somehow. Or i tried to build one from stone which is a bit smug even for a dwarf ;) --Koltom 22:54, 11 February 2008 (EST)


I have a chasm which has quite a bit of cave spider web in it. It also has slugmen etc all over the joint.

How hardy are my silk gatherers going to be, and how clever are they at getting access to spider web straight down cliff faces?

Is it justifiable to dig an up/down stair more than a couple of levels to get to a cluster of web?GarrieIrons 02:44, 17 February 2008 (EST)

Depends. If it is normal silk, it isn't worth the effort unless you REALLY need the silk to make stuff out of (or just as an odds and end for when your dwarves get in a strange mood and want random stuff). However, if it is GIANT cave spider silk GO GET IT. That stuff is very valuable. --Toloran 19:02, 1 November 2008 (EDT)
you just have to watch out for the sucker that laid the GIANT CAVE SPIDER!!!! silk Corhen 05:06, 19 February 2009 (EST)
Eh, a giant arachnid nearly twice the size of any dwarf, with a paralysing bite attack and the ability to shoot web at anything it sees, which feels no pain nor any remorse? What's the worst that could happen? --JT 16:34, 20 February 2009 (EST)
