Welcome, messenger. I'm afraid this year your report will be less exciting then last year's but feel free to look around.
Hear that rushing water? That would be the cave river! Between you and me, I was rather skeptical it was there. I have heard the geologist who did our pre-embark survey work was good, but I never trust someone based on reputation. Plus, the lad has a very....elfy name. What self respecting dwarf names a kid Reveale?
We still need to make the area safe, though, so I'd stay away from there if I were you, even if we hadn't sealed it off again. It is teaming with scaly creeps, and our hammerdwarves are reluctant to try drawing them out of the water. It's probably just as well, there are enough monsters that they would probably get dragged under the water. A pair of immigrants volunteered to join the guard as marksdwarves, so we'll let them have some target practice here before we go about making the river useful. - Razin

You may have noticed a group of statues on your way in, depending which path you took through the forest. Oh, you missed it? Well, had you come from the north-west, you would have seen these statues. This marks the first battle to take place on our new home. In Mid-Autumn of last year (76), the caravan from the mountianhome was ambushed by the filthy Green Menace, you may have heard about it back in the city.
Be the time our lookouts spotted it, the trio of goblin bowmen and a horde of wrestlers had butchered most of the civilians. The brave caravan hammerdwarves managed to break the cowards' resolve and forced a rout, though the few that survived were mortally wounded. By the time we got there, there was but one surviving dwarf, and his mule. It took a while to get the story from him, as he had gone quite mad. Our would-be rescuers ended up being witnesses to his wedding (to his mule, who also seemed to have lost it's mind).
After salvaging what we could (we desperately needed the animals and supplies we had ordered from them the year before), we decided something should be done to honor the brave soldiers who drove the goblins away from our home. These statues were commissioned to do just that. Admittedly, they're rather plain, as our mason was still learning his trade. Though if he asks, tell him it does indeed look like three armored dwarves killing a green goblin. He's a rather sensitive lad. - Razin
