Earthringed - 216 Early Spring by Drone

Map Description:

Glorious Earthringed, after it's 4th year. Held off a couple of sieges and improved the walls of my fortress. Magma smelting proceeds at top speed, after the successful dropping of the magma piston last year. Killed off all the forbidden beasts because I got sick of em.

Point of Interest: Cursed Corpse

This is the forgotten beast that had an extract associated with it. Since I didn't want an outbreak of forgotten beast sickness in my fortress I Killed it with arrows from a distance, which incidently buffed my militia squad of archers up to at least competent (and the militia captain upto Grand Master). After that I didn't know what to do, so I tried crushing the corpe under a collapsing floor. However, This didn't actually crush it, merely buffet it around in a cloud of exploding dust and stone, however, what it did do was scour all the forgotten beast extract off and replace it with a layer of diorite instead!! this could be worth remembering for anyone who needs to decontaminate dwarves or critters of the stuff. I then started building a chenobyl style containment around it but decided against it half way through since it meant leaving my fortress open to the outside of the caves. - Drone
