Focus on learning part by part. Make a fort with an intent to get better at one area of the game and don't worry about it failing because of some thing you didn't get to practice yet
Have dfwiki always open
Learn how to use the workload plugin from dfhack, has a gui too
Oh and finally keep in mind df is a lot closer to sims than you would think, so expect that individual need managment of dwarfs is a large part of gameplay
This were fortress mode tips btw, only when I sent them already I figured you might prefer adventure mode
Well either way I'm not that at adventure mode anyway
