Up to this date, the Guild Hall is one of the most recently added features in the game. By just simply knowing its name, you can immediately tell that it is as important as the other built structures such as hospitals, libraries, taverns, and so on and so forth.

In Dwarf Fortress, you should also be concerned about making a guild hall inside your fortress. If you are wondering why a guild hall is important, it is because this is where children are starting to learn their skills.

Basically, this serves as the school of the dwarves. The default jobs the children can do are hauling and cleaning. But if you have a guild hall in your fortress, children will be trained to do skilled labor.

Plus, what’s even more interesting about a guild hall is that it can be more specific. For example, you can create a woodworkers guild hall or a metalworkers guild hall, and the like.

Creating a guild hall is just basically assigning a zone.

First, you have to look for a space that you want to use. Then, click the zone tab or press z, and click Meeting Area.

Right after that, highlight the area you want to include in the zone, and smoothen out the floor to make it more visually appealing. While the smoothing is still in process, click the plus sign to assign it as guild hall.

Upon clicking New guildhall, a list of options will appear. You can choose whether you want it to be a miner hall, a woodworker hall, a carpenter hall, etc.

To help you decide, hover your mouse cursor on any of those. You will see how many workers are there in this particular job. For example, a stoneworker hall states that there are 5 existing workers and there is still no guild hall established.

Once the number of workers increases over time while there is still no guild hall built, they will establish a guild on their own. Eventually, they will ask you to create a guild hall for them.

While waiting for the floor to be completely smoothened out, you can slowly place furniture in some areas. Since this will be a place for children to train, it is better to add a stockpile, make it custom, and add toys. The reason for this is that even children dwarves are attracted to places that have toys.

It is also good if you add some tables and chairs around the room.
