Dreambrother - 206 by Jurph

Map Description:

My first upload to the archive. This fortress features a hammer-shaped Founders' Hall, with the (deceased) expedition leader entombed in the head of the hammer. The forge area down below will soon be anvil-shaped.

Point of Interest: Dragon monument #1

On this site in the year 203, my sharpshooter squad The Round Lenses slayed their first dragon. This was my first ever megabeast in DF, and I was incredibly lucky to get the drawbridge up.

The commemorative statue is masterwork copper, and the off-color tile to the west is a smoothed and engraved boulder. I had really hoped to get an engraving about the dragon on that boulder, but no such luck. - Jurph

Nice fort you got there ^^, i just love the hammer, and the chess set is cool to :P

Thanks! The two north-south wings flanking the hammer are going to be capped off with magma pools to make them look like torches. The magma pools will have the added benefit of being usable for glass-making on the next floor up.

Nice fort. How long have you been playing?

I've been playing Dwarf Fortress since the second-to-last 2D version was released, quit briefly after a siege, and started again when the 3D version came out.

Grand efforts... I can see you're used to playing in 2D - the Level 14 shapes might look even better if they spanned a few z-levels. Height and depth can be used to great effect.
