Early winter, the insane craftsdwarf died of thirst, and shortly afterwards a metalsmith was posessed and claimed the carpenters
He has so far taken 3xMalachite, and 1xOnyx in there
He's asking for blocks, more ore, and wood still. I have mandate the construction of some rock blocks, in light and dark sorts to see if we can get him to continue his work.
We have also started construction of a magma kiln now so we can product more varieties of glass.
In the coldest months we also saw our first birth, from one of our wrestlers.
As we hit late winter, the metalsmith began his construction. We hope it will be finished in time for the history engravings.
History this year started poiniantly with the engraving of a dead dwarf. The now professional engraver often visits the tombs. He made his first masterpiece engraving this year. A submissive demon :)
The rest of the engravings involve demons looking confused, references to the horse bone armour stand, submissive demons and dwarves talking with dwarves.
We have connected up the channel to our masterpiece and legacy, though the dwarf who mined the final strand nearly drowned in the attempt.
True to form, as the year drew to a close, the metalsmith revealed his masterpiece. A Bronze Flask. Studded with platinum and copper, spiking with copper and pine, and with images of dwarves labouring on it - it is symbolic of the work-break my dwarves cherish so.
The year ended with our first production of Perlash. May 1056 be a year of Clear Glass!

Crop planting has started, and the installation of the green glass floodgates (which look way cooler than regular floodgates) has been finished. Final touches to the walls are being performed by the miner right now. - matryx

Engraved each year by a dedicated historian, these rooms will progress into the mountain as the fortress ages.
1053's showed images of squares, dwarves travelling, dwarves labouring, and several pictures of stars.
1054's showed dwarves talking, walking, travelling and one image of a dwarf withering away.
Also oddly was an image of a dwarf embracing two goblins...?? And the yearly submissive demon image. - matryx

Saving the wood now for steel production (for aqueducts) and Ash production (for other glass types) - we have produced a few magma workshops.
Also - it means we can compact the space required by those ore clusters sat around the fortress. - matryx

Started construction in early 1055 as an ambitious project, this Mural is a testamant to how hard the dwarves can work.
Made almost entirely out of green glass. - matryx
( 1054 Early Autumn to onwards )
More glass blocks than I expected went into the production of this. - matryx
( 1055 Early Spring to onwards )
It seems fitting somehow that the dwarves should be remembered near the history they worked so diligently to create. Alcoves leading off from the History Rooms lead to the tombs. - matryx
( 1056 Early Spring to onwards )
Finally being moved inside, although currently we have to keep the outside one because a young tower-cap is blocking the path in our hallway. - matryx
