Ceilingact - 305 Early Spring by Phlamethrower

Map Description:

No Orcs last year - they must be preparing for something big.

The quiet spell has allowed me to rebuild my military, and finally produce some suits of armour for them to wear. Meanwhile, the miners helped make operation GET WELL SOON #2 a success, have dug out the extra rooms to accomodate the sudden influx of nobles, and have almost finished the new, larger metalsmithing area.

Point of Interest: Operation GET WELL SOON #2

After the complete failure of operation GET WELL SOON, a new, improved well-building operation was started. Whereas the first operation focused on carving out ice floors and collapsing them, this time a solid block of ice was carved out. Once the ice falls below ground level and into the rock layers it will melt. The resulting water was then funnelled into four cisterns, being careful not to expose the bottom layer of the map to the falling ice, to avoid creating another bottomless pit.

The floodgate system at the bottom of the cisterns allows each one to be drained individually, and there's plenty of scope for adding extra plumbing to move the water to new locations. - Phlamethrower

Operation GET WELL SOON was a complete success!

By which I mean it failed.

Although it succeeded in generating lots of water and killing a kitten, the water then promptly ran straight down the funnel and out a hole in the bottom of the map.

Well, you learn something new every day.

You managed to make a mini chasm by accident? How freaking cool is that.

Do Dwarves actually freeze if their beds aren't close to magma?

Sealing the fort with magma... ?

Well, it keeps the orcs out.

Everyone died, BTW. A goblin seige turned up just as the last baby died, so the goblins ended up claiming victory.
