Ashpage - 1033 Mid Spring by hyndis

Map Description:

Trying out a new fortress layout built around a big central square. The map is unique because there is a huge granite spire sticking out from otherwise flag ground. The entrance bunker is carved from the spire.

Population: 233

Point of Interest: Bunker Entrance

Carved from a natural granite spire and shaped into a bunker complex. Entrance is below the bunker floor. Lever off of the main stairway controls the drawbridge. - hyndis

i'm not always impressed with 2d-layout underground fortresses, but you've done it with class here

what are those things in the northeast part of the great hall, with the anvils and tables? some sort of custom workshop?

This is a rather half-arsed fort, just sort of got bored before finishing it. Don't even have any bedrooms yet, dwarves just sleep on the floor next to the well outside of the throne room. =D
Those buildings are classrooms where dwarves can practice skills. While its sort of cheaty, in that they can gain experience without consuming any materials, consider the time factor. All of the time they're spending in the classroom is time they're not spending doing other stuff, and so its balanced out.
All of my highly educated dwarves do tend to be unavailable for work for about a decade of in-game time while they finish their education.
