Cagemerchant - 15 Mid Autumn by Noble Digger

Map Description:

Now in a more readable tileset ;)

Construction of the perimeter wall is done, and goblins charge headlong into my trap fields. I have a good 30 in traps and I'm thinking of a way to dispense with them. I believe a good magma furnace pit is in fashion!

Got weed, got DF, time to build!

Point of Interest: 12. The Lurking Deep

( 15 Mid Autumn → onwards )

The fortress was planned without knowledge of the existence of this deep watery pool, laden with snapping, scratching, crawling creatures. Upon efforts to build a gem vault to the south of the fortress proper, miners detected water. After a survey drill on levels above confirmed an underground pond, the dwarves built an accessway to the east edge of the pond and prepared a sluice to pour its water into. The sluice would return water to the long-dry ponds around the area, at the same time draining the underground pool to a manageable depth.

Once the pond was sufficiently drained, the dwarves labored at risk of life and limb to entice its inhabitants out into traps. At long last, and three dwarves the deader for it, the pond was cleared of dangerous beasts. This legendary artifact, "Temptclans the True Greennessses of Charring", a granite grate, marks the occasion for all time.

Yes, the triple "s" is actually in the artifact's name! - Noble Digger

Nice fort.
What really amazes me is that you A: have a girlfriend and play on DF and B: that you have a girlfriend who PLAYS on df.

It's possible, there is hope for all of us :)

Find the right girl and give her enough attention in between forts that she'll stick around. Thanks btw~

I'll add a new set of images for this fort, it's progressed 2 more years and looks really nice, but I've been messing with Windlancers today (flooding a goblin tower from the top, mwuauauauaghaafgsg hack cough)

A secret pool in the mountains surrounded by all manner of gems and treasures... no really, I didn't make it up, I saw it with my own eyes *hic*
