This article is about an older version of DF.

The observer skill represents the ability of a dwarf to spot a stealth unit. The higher the skill the bigger the distance. The skill is particularly good to have for guards at your entrance or marksdwarves on your walls.

Soldiers will gradually increase this skill while training. It is currently uncertain whether this is related to observing combat demonstrations or is relevant to sparring or combat.

It may also influence the probability of receiving the message "You feel uneasy" instead of an ambush in adventure mode.
