My first attempt at a 'No traps' Fortress. It has been going for 2 years now with a population of about 45. Just recently my untrained military was forced to face two ambush groups of crossbow goblins. It was a massacre, over 12 dwarfs died as my outside structure was not yet finished and not prepared for the onslaught. If it weren't for my legendary miner's suicidal rush at the gobbos, causing them to retreat, my fortress would have been ruined. He died of blood loss after taking over 6 arrows to the chest.
Here is where the goblins ambushed my masons who were building the external structure. I also ordered my engravers to create a memorial after the fight, but sadly only one of the engravings had anything to do with goblins. - A_Fey_Dwarf

Lol thats a shame, it was looking like a pretty cool fort. It's too bad the engravers never engrave what you actually want 'em too, but that sheild and sword look pretty hot any ways (excuse the pun).

If everything else fails, Dwarven Atom Crushers™ are the way to go.
Of course, you're screwed if you reach the pit the moment you reach the admantine...

Actually, atom crushers BREAK on demons.

Wait, WHAT? Dwarven Atom Crushers™ are not the ultimate weapon?
Oh, my god, that's just perfect... And they're immune to traps, too. So, you HAVE to fight! I don't really like military, but traps do just fine for megabeasts and sieges, so I'll never, NEVER choose HFS.
Well, maybe I will one day, but not now, not as a noob.

Awesome way to end a fort! I've got hidden fun stuff on my current one too, maybe my dwarves will end the same way? The toad demons from my last fort were fairly easy to dispatch, but these spirits of fire seem far nastier.
