Rockschucked - 1054 Early Spring by Phrog

Map Description:

Well, it was an interesting year. I botched some construction when removing floors (since the game won't let you construct walls on top of constructed floors) and caused a collapse which ended up killing a weaponsmith. Normally this would be awful, but I can't make weapons except crossbows so who cares?

Also a child has gone fey and is demanding rock and rough gems. Have fun with that one, asshole.

Unlucky, you picked a site with an aquifer, not great. How are you finding the z-levels?

The z-levels are not nearly as daunting as I first thought. It was harder making stairs work than navigating around. I knew there was an aquifer going in, but I had no idea that it would be this crazy. There is literally nothing but clay and loam as far as I can tell on the map, but at least it makes for easy farming. It's actually fun doing things this way. There are enough trees to build a tower I'm planning, especially if I trade in stone and other materials for the loads of shell and bone I'm generating from the plentiful fishing in the area.

Aww hell naw. I just got 17 migrants. I hope they like sleeping on the ground.

Oh, they do. They love it.

Sorry if you already know this, but just to make sure: You are aware that there will be plenty of rock further down, right? Yeah, the aquifer (I'm only assuming there is one) will slow you down a bit, but there are guides on the wiki (as linked by Markavian) if you need them.

Yeah, I realize this, but I'm actually enjoying making a "gimmick" fort for once seeing how the last fortress I made, Claspedsack, went beautifully but was overwhelmingly vanilla-flavored. I might consider breaching the aquifer later (I'm still learning a bit as I go), but going with the wood thing seems fun, especially with so many trees all over the place.

The only downside is right now I can't really trade for very much since there is very little I can manufacture with all of my wood going to building the central tower.

Oh, I got 7 more migrants too.

I manufacture prepared food to trade with, it sells for quite a high price. Wooden tower is looking good.
