Stone crafter is the skill associated with the stonecrafting labor. Stonecrafters create goods such as mugs, crafts, instruments, and toys as well as short swords, jugs, pots, nest boxes and hives from loose stone at a craftsdwarf's workshop. On maps with an obsidian layer, embarking with a Proficient stonecrafter can produce more valuable obsidian trade goods for your early exchanges with the caravans and also provide short swords for your military and any weapon traps you choose to build.

Because stone exists in abundance and is rather a nuisance than a valuable resource in most fortresses, turning some unemployed dwarves into stonecrafters and have them creating rock goods is a good way to get rid of some stone while also creating some trade goods. See stone management for other ways to control your stone production.

Notes[edit]

  • Skilled stone crafters can produce up to 3 small objects at a time from a single stone.
  • Rock short swords can only be produced with "sharpenable hard rock" -- specifically, obsidian -- and require wood for their handles as well.
