Stairs connect areas of dungeons or other regions together. Most levels are completed by finding stairs leading to the next.
When the player steps onto a tile of stair, he is taken to the level entrance specified by the hold's architect, or to the end of the hold.
- The majority of elements cannot be placed on stair tiles, with the exception of orthosquares, lighting effects, fuses, obstacles, and tarstuff. These elements do not act as obstacles if the player walks down that staircase.
- The majority of elements cannot be placed on stair tiles, with the exception of tarstuff mothers.
- Briar and briar roots cannot be placed on stair tiles, but will grow onto them and render them unusable.
