Swordsmokes - 127 Early Spring by Salmeuk

Map Description:

Year 2 of Swordsmokes. 11 dwarfs, 20-odd rabbits, and 5 dogs. Plenty of food and wine. This land is rich in precious minerals and gems, including everything you need to make steel: lignite, magnetite and marble. The fortress is unsecure as it stands, but in the coming months my dwarfs will finish the outside wall. There are worries that if more migrants never arrive, there won't be enough bodies to draft a military when the time comes.

Point of Interest: Entrance

After the completion of the wall surrounding the open-air workyard, this 30-metre span of patchy grass and stone is the only entrance or exit. - Salmeuk

Nice tileset. You know how to make it cool.

If you survived your tantrum spiral maybe you could take the risk of breaching to cavern layers? You could get some nice soft fungus beds.

Oh but you don't have caverns?

Not bad. I like the blue X in the smelter room. I do wonder what this "unforeseeable" security breach was.

I updated the default POI to the location of the issue, which wasn't quite a breach. In a convoluted way it was closer to blackmail.

Also, here's that platinum hammer and description, take a look. Not bad for a first artifact after a long time away from DF. (link to imgur).

Oh, now I see. Those overlooks are dangerous.

I do like that spiral ramp.

Wow, i like the magma metalsmithing. The lava channel is real nice. Also it's nice to see how you stock refuse outside the fortress side.n Other things worth mentioning is the food production line and the central lobby, that makes the fortress breathe.
