Liontower - 218 Mid Summer by Shurikane

Map Description:

Liontower remains strong! 451 meals and it's not about to stop!

Legends will tell of us, brave disciples of our Supreme Benefactor, fed and kept appeased for the decades, the centuries, the millenia to come!

Shuri's Note: Liontower has, at last, retired at the peak of its glory, and after I pretty much accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish with it.

I envision an artistic representation of Liontower, the skyscraper-like building standing out in the distance, surrounded by stranger and ever crazier constructions, as if the presence of the fortress bent reality itself and invited aberrations of art and nature into the world. Lion faces everywhere, towers falling from the sky like meteors, moats filled with puke, dwarves who meditate to the smell of miasma coming from years upon years of accumulated gore and bones in a contaminated soup that lies at the bowels of the structure, the environment around it becoming ever more warped and deranged as the almighty Liontower is fed hundreds, thousands, millions of sacrifices...

Point of Interest: The Crash Site

Dastot Lisatzon writes in his journal:

"We were doing our work one day when we saw this gigantic Liontower fall from the sky and crash right next to our humble fortress! The thing pierced right through our chambers, fortunately wounding none, but creating a nasty fierce crack in the ground along with an incredible amount of rubble.

We quickly cleared out the loose stones and then polished the structure. Sadly, we cannot move it - it's far too large for even all of us and our engineering put together. So we had to leave it there. We ended up smoothing and engraving its floor-ceiling-whatever-it-is and turned it into an observatory safe from the arrows of the stupid goblins." - Shurikane

wow... that is a tall, tall drop tower. At first I didn't notice the missing 30 floors, Thanks for saving us on that monotony.
Also what are those things at the top of "Cage Alley"?

Thirty layers of missing tower... you get to the top and it suddenly feels very very tall :) now where I have I read about that before...

Awesome fortress.

Sorry for the double posting, but i was wondering something.
Can you traumatize your citizens, say a kid, by placing them beneath the sacrificial drop? Shaping their mental (well)being as it were?

Dakira: You're referring to the white things at each end? They're 1x2 drawbridges, which all raise towards the inside of the corridor.

This way, while the dorfs collect and replace cages from one, they are safe while the invaders go into another, freshly opened corridor.
