Libashsakrith Zustashgostangustosbidok Uthgar - 131 Mid Autumn by Zachary

Map Description:

This is the first fortress I've ever really taken seriously. So far, it hasn't been attacked too often. Only one Goblin Siege and about 5 Goblin Ambushes. Too many dead thieves to count, though. Also, two dead Forgotten Beasts, a dead Warecavy, and a dead Minotaur. I've also royally ticked off the Elves, first by offering them wood before seizing their goods. After that, I slaughtered the merchants that brought them. Yeah, I don't like the Elves. I did this twice. Looking in Legends in a copy of the world, I saw that the second group was a different government. I think that next Spring, I'm going to be under siege.

The fortress currently has 7122866 wealth in created goods. 279081 is imported. 97631 is exported. The only reason I'm still a County and not a Duchy or the Capital is because I haven't had enough time. I was upgraded from normal to Barony to County in two caravans, so the third arriving later this season will be making me a Duchy. I may have to raise my population limit in order to make it to Capital, though. It's set at 100 right now.

I got really tired of all the trees blocking Wagons from reaching my Trade Depot, so I cut down a 3-wide passage all around the edges of the map and built Paved Roads on that space to prevent more trees from growing. I then made roads from all 4 edges of the map to the entrance of my fortress, insuring that Wagons would always be able to reach my Trade Depot.

I did not export many of the layers below the main fortress. They are not pictured. Because of this, the scene will take a jump from the second cavern layer directly to the magma caverns as you go down.

Keep in mind that all dates mention in Points of Interest are estimations. I can't remember exactly when I did some things, so I just took my best guess.

Translation of the name "Libashsakrith Zustashgostangustosbidok Uthgar" is:
"Axeblazes the Ancient Awe-Inspiring Angry-Act of Demons"
Started in Early Autumn of year 126.

Graphics pack used is "Phoebus' Graphic Set 0.34.11v00" (not most current)

Point of Interest: Aprox. Location of Embark Wagon

( 126 → onwards )

This is approximately where the Wagon was when I first Embarked onto this stage. - zackman0010

Really liked how you design the entrance defenses of this fortress. How did you even sustain enough booze and food for the archer barracks when they where training?
