Stonetower - 1054 Early Spring by OHakubi

Map Description:

Construction continues on what I have suddenly realized is not a tower but rather a tall, round, normal building. Assuming that each 1 x 1 x 1 block is a cube, of course; in that instance the whole thing would be about 16 units tall and 31 or 33 wide in the end. Plans have begun for either digging around the base of the tower to make it seem taller or to just give the entire thing a pass and stick wooden pillars on top to turn it into a giant stone birthday cake.

Other notable features include a finished dining hall, actual rooms, a fey mood resulting in a 67,000 sheckel bracelet, several more immigrants (bumping the population up to 90) and an invasion of goblins about two days after this particular moment in time.

I love your residential design for a circular tower and I'll copy it as soon as I can.

Well, that's a damn shame. Is anyone at all still alive, or was it a clean sweep?

I like project MURDERHALL, by the way.

Basically a clean sweep. I say "basically" because, after the first deaths, everyone (and I mean everyone) was so upset that tantrums were happening all the time, the tantruming dwarves would break stuff/hit other dwarves, who would then tantrum in turn, keeping everyone on edge. Eventually one of them would go berserk and kill someone (or just give up on everything and starve), upsetting the people who knew the dead party and adding to the overall sense of despair.

Near as I can tell there's no way out of a death spiral like this; as long as there's dwarves and dead dwarves they're going to tantrum. I abandoned it in the middle of the thing, mostly because events spiralled out of my control extremely quickly and dwarves weren't going berserk fast enough for my tastes. Had things continued, though... yeah, they'd all probably be dead.
