Another busy year passes, construction has gone onwards and upwards, but the obsidian factory claimed the lives oh so many dwarves... fortunately the quality of life (or should that be food?) kept the population happy during the worst of it. Two batches of peasant miners were recruited... and killed trying to clean out the crud, the plain mess that was the obsidian factory. The factory was drained and fixed, making it much safer all round.
After several applications of the new obsidian factory it was decided to drain the moat and prepare some significant improvements. By winter it was decided to press on with expansions south east to claim the giant pit as part of the fort.
With the rock put to good use constructing walls and floords up high the workshop layers are much better laid out now, although more space for storage will be needed. Store rooms to the edge of the meeting hall were drawn up to deal with the mountain of shells and bones being produced from the fort butchery and fishery. A muskox died of old age and all of its siblings were put to death to claim the meat, bone and hides.
Population is at a high of 202, but 49 of those are children or babies, but the fort can idle at at 79 dwarves if all is quiet. Strike the earth once more! Plans of expansion are afoot!
( 308 Early Spring → onwards )
With the construction of a steel corkscrew several layers below requiring power from windmills at the surface, there is a fear that the pressurised magma may overflow. To prevent any unfortunate problems the magma pipe is being sealed, creating an an expanded courtyard at the center of the fort. This may well be the location for (dare I whisper?) dwarven bedrooms... - Markavian
