Right As of late there have been a lot of repeated questions that the answer for was either easily found or even worse found in a "sticky". Either that or have been posted in the wrong place.

So to aid in new members find their feet round here here is a brief over view of the sections of the Brewery plus a few links to useful parts to get you going.

First off please read here and understand The Rules

Now with that all understood lets have a look at the main areas of the brewery a young dwarf will need to find first off:

The Tavern - your reading this so you have found this part - style_emoticons/default/victory.gif This is the best place to post general questions, check stuff and any sort of advice. More often than not anything you can think of Dwarf related has gone though here. If you cant find it first try the search function, if still no luck post away (just mention you have tried searching - it helps) and im sure some longbeard will aid you

The Cellars - this is if you have a more specific question about a race ie how to counter a unit or tactic they have. Don't post whole lists just an outline of the problem and we shall try and help

The Forge - this is where you can master the art of painting from simple techniques all the way up and also a place to post what you have and others can see your throng grow

The Barracks - this is where you can show off your lists and ask for help improving it. In the titles put what points level it is for and then at the start of the post state what you want the list to do and what you play against. The more information you give us the more we can help you back. Further rules and advice on posting lists can be found here.

Battlegrounds - here you can record your victories and bitter defeats. Read others and learn from them

Bugman's School of Battle - this is where we have collected the words of many a longbeard when they have opened their mouths other than to order another ale or to scorne a short beard about something. Here you can find breakdowns on how to fight each race in the Old World, tactics, advice and much more. If you need help playing look no further

There is much more going on in the brewery than what i have just shown you but this will get you rfeet under the table.

Now also to help you (cause im kind like that style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) let me show you a few other bits to get you started:

well, it doesn't really. I mean, load the page, or check the properties, take the Url, but take out 'forge/' in the url. That should do it for you.

Sorry it has taken a while but managed to fight the goblins back from this area and it is all working again to aid the new players here in the brewery.

Remember this is just to get you started here (think of it as a free "welcome" ale from me. There is much more for you to find that is of use here.
