Gateblows - 1051 Early Winter by Chthon

Map Description:

More migrants arrived and a dwarf caravan. However noone has seen any other werewolves since the first pair. Maybe they learned their lesson? With the onset of winter though hopefully we won't have to find out.

Point of Interest: Migrants and trade

7 dwarves arrived in the fall:
Kivish the Engraver, Skilled Marksdwarf, Competent Armor User, Competent Dodger, Talented Engraver
Ushat the Jeweler, Accomplished Gem Setter
Mosus the Smith, Novice Wood Cutter, Accomplished Weaponsmith, Novice Armorsmith
Zasit the Jeweler, Expert Gem Setter, Expert Gem Cutter
Dakost the Veterenarian, Adequate Animal Caretaker
Oddly enough he's taking over as Chief Medical Dwarf now.
Degėl the Glassblower and Trader, Accomplished Glassmaker, Competent Appraiser
He's taking over as the village broker
Etur the Fisherdwarf, Fisherdwarf

Late in the fall the dwarven caravan arrived with much needed supplies. Degėl opened trading offering 2550* in stone crafts. He recieved 2110* in goods. A list follows:

(steel bars)
(tin bars)
(raw crystal glass)x2
(raW green glass)
(lead cage)
(-copper cage-)
(-ashen barrel-)
(dwarven ale Barrel)x3
(-oaken barrel-)
(+chestnut barrel-)
(oaken bucket)
(iron crossbow)
(bismuth bronze pick)
(pig tail fiber bag)x2
(cave wheat seeds bag)
(pig tail seeds bag)
(-donkey leather bag-)
(-elk leather bag-)
(dwarven sugar bag)x2
(draltha leather bag)
(cave fish leather bag)
(leather bin)x3
(silver bolts )

After witnessing what happened to the 2 werewolf casualties he decided that some silver bolts and a crossbow would be handy in the future. Will he be right?

He also picked up some leathers to fashion into nice padding for that chaffing mail and plate being smithed at the forge. - Chthon

Good to know werewolves can be defeated...

It would be fun to know that dwarves that get bitten and survive would turn into werewolves themselves too, but I guess that'll have to come later with disease and magic.
