Why should I breach a cave?
Caverns are wonderful source locations. In a regular first degree cave you'll locate fungis for food, tower caps for logs, crawler silk, water, and also huge open locations that are muddied currently and also make superb dwarven ranches. My bro has actually required to in fact constructing his dwarf ft in the first cave due to the fact that all the sources you require are primarily right there.
The first cave is rather secure, I have not seen anything horrible appeared of it. The 2nd cave can get a little bit horrible. I have a military of 10 wrestlers I sent out down there and also shed 1 while they were removing the first wave of pests. Yet note that the 2nd cave additionally has lava.
I have not breached the 3rd cave yet. yet you can visualize the fad. The much deeper you go, the scarier it comes to be.
Basically, the response to your inquiry is sources. caves are a huge financial increase to your ft. The pests are a tiny hassle in contrast to the value you leave the caves.
Underground water, huge fungis that you can cut down and also make use of as timber, perhaps crawler silk. You will certainly likely intend to have a substantial military if you intend on breaching right into the cave and also not walling it off!
To add a little bit concerning the safety and security of caves : it is feasible, though not assured, to have aggressive creatures/civilizations in the first cave degree. And also even if they are not about when you first violation does not suggest they will not turn up later on!
