A Giant Bat attacked my woodcutters. Three Woodcutters, and a Leatherworker were chopped into confetti before I mobilized half my fortress into idiot recruits.
An Engraver brought the Bat down, although mainly it was just tired from making mincemeat out of my woodcutters. One woodcutter was chopped into eight (8!) separate pieces. The Engraver had serious lacerations on his lower body, and will most likely spend the next few months demanding food and water from his sick-bed.
Other than that fiasco, we named our resident Batman, and finished the skylit attic statue garden.

I had a pretty good idea how my tombs were going to look like, and then HOLY CRAP A CAVE RIVER! The seventh pioneering dwarf gets one sweet tomb room. It overlooks a 4-Z waterfall. - ClsfdKidd

The Vaults are going to be filled with goods, and then sealed up so that even a kobold won't be able to steal the wealth. I believe the correct word is "hoard". Yes, we will hoard the wealth of Angelbane, and let our enemies drool. - ClsfdKidd

Good luck! You should add some points of interest to let us know what your forts up to.

Tombs, you mean, TREE FARM?
Are you going to seal the hoard with magma?
Submitted by: ClsfdKidd - 2009-03-30 to 236 Mid Winter
Well, I know for sure that I need a tree farm. The Giant Bat incident really was a kick in the seat. I'm thinking that I'll make some sort of indoor room with the natural waterfall in the center, then maybe use pumps to make a really big, curvy, natural-looking cavern and irrigate the tower-caps into it. Some fishing spots would be nice, too.
As far as sealing the hoard with magma, WHOA Markavian, that's an awesome idea. That's makin' my brain go 'round. I'll have to think on all the engineering aspects for a bit. I certainly don't want to burn my artifacts, cause THAT would suck.

A GCS killed by a kobold? HAHAHAHAHA.
Submitted by: ClsfdKidd - 2009-03-31 to 237 Late Spring
WELL! My GCS is precious to me. I may never get another one even after years of playing DF. So I just want to be careful.
BTW, does this mean I could basically let him roam free killing critters and spewing silk? Cause if he's not gonna die, I might do that.

Love the layout, especially the tendency to avoid square or ugly rectangular rooms.

I love the tileset you're using. It's very squiggly.

Nice. I like the way all the bedrooms are "lighted" via fortifications.
