Cavernsmiths - 204 Mid Autumn by Drone

Map Description:

The Lack of Iron and the slow speed of production of Stone blocks is really starting to drag the fortress down. The lack of armour means my dwarves cannot safely spar (I already have 3 Nerve Injured Champions from wrestling unarmed alone) If goblins come heavily armed and armoured and I am unable to defeat them, then gods help us all D:

Where are you getting your stone from?

Theres a Quarry just to the north, It goes down several Z levels. That's mainly why the top level (the only one visible in this) Is completely devoid of stone.

You should get yourself a wall... if you get attacked, it won't look pretty.

Goblin Ambush came, tried to get in through the trade depot entrance and ran straight into my stack of legendary wrestlers.

Goblin Bone bolts, Anyone?

You mentioned a statue people live in... I am greatly intrigued by this.

Yeah, I kinda want to build some giant monument. But I'm not sure what. Currently I'm thinking of building a giant sword or something and then dividing it up into rooms. What I've started so far is "The Project" So it hasn't started very well.

Failing that, A Giant lava-cast obsidian Monolith. With smoothed walls. And stuff.

Edit: Hey I know, I'll make all these useless metals into blocks and forge a GIANT SWORD with golden statues on to symbolise those lost in battle defending the great Cavarnsmiths.

Also will give me some peasants to draft. Hopefully.
