  • Although rope bridges can be only one tile wide, they function as any other bridge and can be passed over by large carts and wagons.
  • Uses ropemaking skill. See skill requirements for exact levels.
  • Unlike other bridges, rope bridges sag down in the middle, sagging less when the planner has more body strength. This can make them impractical over shallow areas, or between areas with significant difference in height.
