Another year, another report to her Majesty, eh? Good to see you old friend. We have much to discuss... keep your voice down, lest those damned nobles notice you haven't grovelled at their feet today, never mind that your just arrived. We have much to talk about regarding your report and...other things.
Be very careful when moving about the valley floor. During the winter, we finished filling the glass tower, and have been deconstructing the magma duct and associated machinery since. There's only been one serious accident during that time, but many have had stones and bit of debris clunk them on the head as they walked below.
Our architects would like me to point out their addition of a domed roof to the downward stairwell. They're very excited about it, something about it making the central tower-structure look more developed, and less like it was built after the stairwell was planned.
We've also added a path to the prison, mostly to make our Guard Captain's treks to his offices less time consuming. Don't look at me like that! Yes, he works for the nobles officially, but he's actually one of ours, and those trips of his are usually whenever he can get away from the Countess to check on prisoners. When we found out the Countess was planning on traveling here, we made sure to appoint one of our more compassionate, well grounded residents Captain of the Guard, rather then let her bring one of their lapdogs to fill the post. So far he's kept most of the guardsmen from shifting their loyalties from the people to the nobles, and succeeded in persuading them to assign prison time rather then beatings when we fail to produce Pig Iron Items, whatever that's supposed to mean. - 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
