Sparkgear 4 - 207 Late Summer by _nil_

Map Description:

Sparkgear 4 after nil's turn. The year was pretty uneventful other than a couple artifact creations, but the fortress expanded in several ways.

Point of Interest: Tower of the Watch

Holds the new jails, which are in the portion that goes above ground for maximum unpleasentness, some bedrooms for members of the watch (currently rented out to the public since no one in fortress guard is legendary) and Captain Nil's personal quarters down in the bottom. Dwarven justice is now fully functional in Sparkgear (just had a hammering even), which should help reduce the risk of a catastrophic tantrum spiral. Hopefully.

There's also a barracks here; use with caution as anyone who gets injured will generally die of dehydration. This problem does not apply to prisoners unless you let the drink stockpiles by the chains go empty. - _nil_

Why is there a huge area hollowed out under the mountain?

One of the earlier players was going to build a big temple in there, but I guess he was interrupted by orcs or a tandrum spiral or something and lost the fort. One or two reclaims later and its just another entry in Sparkgear's long tradition of "half-built and/or looted vanity projects that dwarves never use and other players just build around."

Pretty cool how huge that miasma is you can see it from the side view well. I'd like to see this in Visual Fortress.
