This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Passages are cavern features that connect one cavern layer to the next, being natural tunnels connecting two layers by ramps and short, twisted tunnel sections. Passages can be easily sealed with a constructed wall, and discovering what lies so many layers below may be worth the temporary risk of attack from forgotten beasts or the like. The announcement window will let you know you've found a downward passage even if you happen to discover it from the bottom.

Note: Because of Bug:6390, you may not see a ramp when the discovery of this is first announced. You should channel that tile and the surrounding tiles (as it may not be exactly where the announcement placed it) to find it.
