Sizzledlanterns - 156 Early Summer by Jebraltix

Map Description:

Using reveal for this one to further look for gold, silver, and copper. The baroness arrived 2 seasons ago. I found 5 GCS using dwarf companion and unhid them for this upload. No sieges yet but I'm building up a large army for protection and to get ready to storm the adamantine pits. Any suggestions on how to break into the pit? If anybody wants to see anything special done I'll do my best, I want to try and fight the demons though. But If they're fire I'll dump a load of water on them. It could either be the begging of the adamantine age, or the end of my fortress. The whole fun of it is finding out.

Point of Interest: Giant Cave spider

My weaver somehow collected 4 GCS webs from somewhere, other than that I only have cave spider webs. Theres 4 other GCSs spread out around the chasm. - Jebraltix

A castle compound build into the side of a mountain, excellent positioning. What population are you aiming for?

I've started moving away from stack designed forts and tried to spread out and wide more, I get the feeling floors aren't far apart at all.

Well I've taken a different approach to this fort due to the adamantine, One dwarf has one labor and one labor only. Right now I'm aiming for probaly 200, but I might have to lessen that because of the amount of creatures in the chasm, or I could just rush in there with an army of champion crossbowmen and hope for the best. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by stack designed forts though.

oh wow! i would love it if you could uppload the world and a picture of the embark site somewhere!

I honestly have no clue how to upload the world, but I'll figure it out. As for the picture, I'll do my best.

To find the seed go into the folder where you exported the images to, and open the notepad file called sizzledlanterns-param-regionX-XXXX-XXXX.txt
This should contain the world seed and history seed.
I don't think it tells you where you embarked though.

Hey Jebraltix, by stack fortresses I mean having a central stairwell and everything is a layer centered off the stairwell. I don't like the idea of having a central shaft into my fort, I prefer to have deeper levels and ornate staircases that gradually wind down.

Entirely due to personal preference.
That and dwarves slipping and falling 20 levels.

Oh, I definitely like a central staircase more than a 1 level fort, I tried having a flat fortress about 2 forts ago, didnt like it very much. I more enjoy taking advantage of the z-axis.
