FriendlyWorks - 216 Early Summer by Cheshire Cat

Map Description:

Welcome to Friendlyworks, one of my largest fortresses to date.

attractions include the huge dam in the lower left corner, i selected this site specifically for the brook above a cliff, and lucked out with both a cave and HFS as well.

the upper right has a maze of doors with the tombs, and under the fort are some soon to be water caves, which should be good for adventurers. this fortress was only somewhat planned, so the top few levels are messy.

the desert is populated by camels, giant leapoards, cougars and giant desert scorpions. the hills have giant eagles and sasquatches. surprisingly the camels actually seem the most dangerous, they kept getting into bits of the dam while i was building it, going crazy, then killing the masons.

interestingly, just about every goblin civ is within a few world tiles of this fort, and it seems to have made for the biggest sieges i have ever seen.

Point of Interest: Cave

so i lucked out and got a cave with this map. after i my hunters brutally slaughtered all the ratmen and the one lonely black bear who lived in here, i used it for burial. this map proved pretty hostile for dwarves and initially i had no time to make proper tombs, so this cave sufficed. every coffin you see as you scroll down contains a dwarf, and lots and lots of them are children. every season now i get the message "no migrants even considered making the journey to your deathtrap"

interestingly ive never actually felt under threat while playing this map. ive had such a constant overpopulation i only tended to notice the sudden loss of entire work shifts of dwarves to mad camels and the like when everyone would stop sleeping in the entrance hall as beds were suddenly free. - Cheshire Cat
