God damn, what a year.
A woodcutter and her baby died during another ambush where the dwarf was surrounded from the start and couldn't escape.
A low level blacksmith that died from injuries suffered during some dwarven justice. Fucking mayor and his adamantine demands. Not sure why the jail wasn't used, either.
A low level jeweler that was employed as a mason (for wall construction purposes only) became melancholy after a failed mood despite requiring only one material and obtaining it immediately. I guess I must've accidentally forbidden the gem before he finished. Anyways, the amusing part here is how he died. You know the catacombs entrance? He jumped down all thirteen levels. His leg ended up bouncing up at least six levels before returning to the bottom.
One that's not quite a death, but during a different ambush, a baby suffered some major injuries (mangled head, several other broken limbs) while the parent fled for her life. Later on, the parent must've been the one that revealed a thief or something as the baby ended losing her left arm...from the shoulder down. Needless to say, after becoming a child, she immediately fell unconscious and was taken to a bed to recover.
The magma moat is finally being filled. Took far too long, however, due to the poor design I used for my original magma duct. Needless to say, it's great being able to see a finalized piece of the fortress.
A siege of around sixty goblins finally came in mid-winter. Was about time, too, as my iron supply was incredibly low and I won't be doing any exploratory mining for a while. The only major wound from the siege was one of my champions with a prior nerve wound ended up losing an eye to the crossbow goblins.
The queen finally arrived with the mid-spring immigrant wave. She arrived without a husband, but that's for the best as my temporary noble level is running out of room. Still at least eight levels before I'm able to build the final noble level, though :
And Endok, once again, gave birth. Her total count is up to nine total with seven currently living.
The PoI's have some other info.
Not much at the moment, but expect this to be nearly completed by the end of the coming year.
The eastern side was only recently filled, actually. The damn magma takes ages to move counter-clockwise through the moat. Beyond the magma in the feeding tube evaporating, the only change I've made is tearing down a wall and covering the hole where the magma dropped down. - Ashery
