Dwarves are the playable race in Craft the World.

Male and female differences[edit | edit source]

Originally the game featured only male dwarfs as the playable race. The female characters, available with the Sisters in Arms DLC, are equivalent in everything: A.I., behaviour, carring capacity, tasks assignments and skill progression. They only differ in visual appearance, in voice timbre and in few attributes, like health, base armor and speed (walking, running, jumping, climbing and swimming).

Spawn[edit | edit source]

For details about leveling up, see: Level (Experience).

The player begins each new world with only one dwarf. As he/she levels up, one new dwarf will spawn, always at the stockpile — one dwarf per level. The maximum number of them being 20, as this is currently the maximum reachable level in the game.

Randomness[edit | edit source]

All spawning dwarfs are random on their:

  • sex;
  • name;
  • skill;
  • phisical appearance (skin pigmentation, hair, beard and mustache color and style);
  • t-shirt color; and
  • removable pieces of clothing, like hats and boots.

Health[edit | edit source]

The health of each dwarf is represented by 3 red hearts — Dwarf Health.pngDwarf Health.pngDwarf Health.png.

The health of each monster is represented by 3 green hearts — Monster Health.pngMonster Health.pngMonster Health.png.

And the health of each animal, usually non-hostile or semi-hostile, is represented by 3 yellow hearts — Animal Health.pngAnimal Health.pngAnimal Health.png.

When a target get damaged, the heart more on the right will shrink until it disappears. When all hearts are gone, the target dies.

Causes of health loss[edit | edit source]

Quite a few things may inflict damage on dwarfs:

  • be hit by any hostile creature, including some carnivorous plants;
  • fall or jump from a height of more than 3 blocks;
  • lose his/her footing while climbing and fall from a height of more than 2 blocks;
  • stay or swim underwater without a diving helmet; and
  • stay on or swim on the lava;
  • be hungry with zero points of satiety (when all 3Dwarf Satiety.png have disappeared)[4].

Low health[edit | edit source]

When a dwarf has less then 1Dwarf Health.png, the player will be notified:

Low health sign

Low
Health


If there is one or more dwarfs with low health, this sign appears on the left side of the screen. Clicking on this icon will show one by one all wounded dwarfs.

Injuried dwarfs run for their lifes under certain circumstances.[5]

Male dwarfs with health points lower than:

  • 25% will run away from stronger enemies;
  • 15% will run away from any kind of hostile creature.

Female dwarfs with health points lower than:

  • 29% will run away from stronger enemies;
  • 19% will run away from any kind of hostile creature.

Healing[edit | edit source]

There are some ways of healing injured/exhausted dwarfs:

If there are no health potions crafted in the inventory, the mages will heal their fellows anyway, but at a very insignificant rate.

Satiety[edit | edit source]

For the complete list of foods, see the main article: Food.
Apple.png Put some kind of food on the table, like apples. The dwarves will take the food on their own when they are hungry.
~ Task "Make some food"

The satiety of each dwarf is represented by 3 slices of bread — Dwarf Satiety.pngDwarf Satiety.pngDwarf Satiety.png. All full slices represent the maximum of 10 satiety points.

As the time passes, the dwarfs become hungry and the slice more on the right will shrink until it disappears. The losing of satiety points follow this rule:

  • -1 point each 9 minutes[6] of ingame time, if dwarf is idle.
  • -1 point each 6 minutes[7] of ingame time, if dwarf is working.

So, more tasks the dwarfs receive, more food should be served on the table.

Hungry[edit | edit source]

When a dwarf has less than 1 Dwarf Satiety.png, he/she will become hungry. The player will then be notified with the sign below.

Dwarves hungry sign

Dwarves
hungry


If there is one or more dwarfs hungry, this sign appears on the left side of the screen. Clicking on this icon will show one by one all hungry dwarfs.

When all Dwarf Satiety.png are gone, the dwarf starts losing health[4].

Monotonous food[edit | edit source]

If a dwarf eat 3 times in a row the same food, there is no other kind of food served and he/she have less than 2Dwarf Satiety.png, he/she will state:

X?! I can't eat this anymore!

Being "X" the food eaten 3 times. This dwarf will have to eat at least 1 time another nutriment before he/she can eat that food again. So, there is no need to have a huge variety on the table. If the player can serve at least 2 kinds of food, there will be no monotony problem.

Regen bonus[edit | edit source]

All dwarfs with more than 7 satiety points receive a health regeneration bonus of 1 health point each 5 minutes[8]. So, if food with healing properties — like apples (growing only in the forest world) — are hard to get, it's still possible to heal the dwarfs by keeping them well fed.

Death and respawn[edit | edit source]

If a dwarf dies, all his equipment will fall on the ground and another dwarf must carry it back to the stockpile in order to be used again. If he/she dies and his/her body fall into the lava or in the ocean at the map extremeties, all the equipment will be lost.

Dwarf Died Sign

Dwarf died


When a dwarf dies, this sign appears on the left side of the screen. Clicking on this icon will show where his/her body lays down, along with the dropped equipment.

Normal mode[edit | edit source]

A dwarf soul.

In a Normal mode game, when a dwarf dies, a replacement will spawn at the stockpile in:

  • 5 minutes, if only one dwarf is dead (and the player has at least another one);
  • 2 minutes, if more than 1 dwarf have died, but not all of them. In this case, the 1st dwarf respawn in 5min and all the others in 2 minutes;
  • 20 seconds, if all dwarfs are dead. In this case, the 1st one respawn in 20s and all the others in 2 minutes.

If a dwarf respawns it will lose all skill progress and will only have 1 skill at level 10, following the spawning randomness.

To avoid this loss, the player may use a soul keeper, available from tier 7 of the tech tree, with the basic alchemy.

Permanent death mode[edit | edit source]

In a Permanent Death mode game, if a dwarf dies, it's lost forever, there will be no replacement. In this mode, each dead dwarf is 1 less to the population cap. So, if the player has lost 3 dwarfs, e.g., and get to the maximum level (20), he/she will have only 17 dwarfs available.

Direct Control[edit | edit source]

Dwarves can be controlled allowing you to manually move him, place and mine blocks etc. This is done by selecting a dwarf and clicking the direct control button.

When controlling a dwarf you can:

  • Manually move the dwarf.
    • Dwarves seem to get a slight speed boost when being controlled directly (untested but 50% movement speed increase according to files).
  • Place and mine blocks.
    • Dwarves gain a mine and place range increase. This means dwarves can mine and place blocks up to two blocks from his location.
    • It is unknown if this is a bug or not, but when controlling a dwarf you can place any block without the dwarf having to get it from the Stockpile. This is useful for when building things far away, or when building big projects.
    • Currently (patch 1.0.008) you can instantly mine any block (not all blocks tested). This is done by having the dwarf start mining a block, then cancelling and immediately start mining the same block again.
  • Attack enemies.
    • Currently, dwarves will not run to the target if you click to attack it. You will have to manually do this.
  • Eat and sleep.
  • Use portals
    • You can jump through a portal while on it by pressing W. If there are multiple active portals, press W again, until you portal to the one you want.
  • Interact with objects.
    • Eg. cut wool, gather water etc.

Skills[edit | edit source]

For the complete list of skills, skill items and skill books, see the main article: Skill.

Each dwarf starts with one random skill at level 10, which can be improved by doing their related activities and using skill books up to 100 points. Skill items will accelerate this process and overcome the 100 limit. Each dwarf can develop a maximum of 3 different skills.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Equipment Menu

Dwarfs have silly looking hats and need you to create their armor, boots and helmets, along with better weapons, tools and accessories.

Dwarfs may be equiped with:

Look for the reference numbers at the image on the right.

The accessories may be a backpack, a tough backpack, a parachute, a quick ladder pack and/or any skill item.

There are though items that may be used spontaneously by the dwarfs, without the player having to open the "Equip Menu": the bucket, the fishing rod, the diving helmet, the Elixir of Fire and the Elixir of Ice Arrow

Carrying capacity[edit | edit source]

All dwarfs have a natural carrying capacity that can be improved with equipment.

  • natural: 3
  • with a backpack: 4
  • with a tough backpack: 5

Beware though that the more they carry with them, the slower become their movement.
