Mafolzasit "Chamberknife" - 127 Early Autumn by Servu

Map Description:

Dark days are upon Mafolzasit. The filling of the great lava lake of Greaterplans has drained The Fountain of Unions, the volcano that has kept the dwarves that dwell there warm for so long. Now the magmafall that once yielded it's warm embrace to the dining hall and the tunnels near it sits cold. The forges, once teeming with busy dwarves bending metal to their will with the glowing heat the Fountain provided them, are now covered in dust and cold has found it's residence among the workspaces. On the southern mountain and in the forests, ogres have begun to wander about, their wrath scaring any workers that happen to be crossing the bridge across the chasm, while the orcish armies continue to pound the outer defences. And while the foes have yet to cross the Bridge of Despair and live, the ever increasing reports of goblin squads being met inside the perimeter area are striking fear to the general populace that now is reluctant of leaving the underground halls without either the fortress guard and the military patrolling the road. But the greatest danger the fort is facing are not the goblins stalking the unwary peasant, nor it is the mighty orcs that keep fiercely charging through the defences. No, the real danger lies in the very heart of the fortress, in the most distant mining tunnels that have dared to seek the very core of The Wild Spines.

It seems the image exporting went haywire. I hope all those errors won't bother you too much.

Point of Interest: The Palace

( 127 Early Autumn → onwards )

These hall are where my king Logem Kolshamed lives. The throne room is a 3 z-levels high hall with fully engraved pillars an walls (I know, I missed a spot) and a mosaic on the floor. The hall is warmed by a magma pool that circles around the King's masterwork adamantium throne (I'm hoping of replacing it with an artifact one) Behind the throne, there is an artifact lever. To the north is the King's 2 z-level dining hall and next to it his bedchamber (I was expecting a consort so matching facilities lie to the south) The eastern hall will be the access to the burial chamber as soon as I dig one. The dig designations you see around the Palace is a plan for an additional central heating system. - Servu

Awesome entrance, multiple magmafalls, and a room with both water and magma to go into it.

5/5, my good sir. Bookmarked for future viewing.

As soon as I get back to my Dwarf Fortress computer I'll upload the current status and a little video. The waterfall is completed and is running rather nicely. There are many other expansions on the way too.

You can't hide that pentagram in the bottom floor.

Satanic fortress!

Hey my dwarves don't mind. They have even scribbled some pentagrams to the walls themselves.

I don't know, but HFS in this map would make great justice. It would be awesome to find some in the only free mountain tile...
One can always dream.

Great map, and I loved the stories and your writing style! The "trampouline" room was hilarious.

Thanks Barbarossa. I might even get an update up in a few days. There has been some Fun stuff happening once again.

edit: the update is up! I still have some PoIs to put up and a video to upload, but I'll do those later.

edit2: the video is up!

Damn, you have seen quite a few slaughters in your time, haven't you. Sweet fort.

I like how there's a bunch of puppies in the middle of the magma pentagon ._.

Yeah the place is actually just next to the orc capital. They can siege me multiple times per year, and usually bring full armies complete with the dreaded crossbows.

Love it, awesome and badass fortress.
