Every time I start the game the sound is at 255/255. Is there any way to make it start at a different level?

In your init file, you can turn sound off by default with [SOUND:NO] or set the sound to a specific volume with [VOLUME:100] or whatever level you want. The init file can be found in the Dwarf Fortress folder under data/init/init.txt


Set this in your init files.
