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: Pretty looking storage and shopping area.

again, i did this because i had so much time to kill waiting for the dam, this time to fill with water. its all done by hand, there are some little problems with the symmetry here and there. each oval shaped room is used to store something different, the stockpiles for raw materials near the workrooms take directly from the ones here, which occupies all the jobless dwarves and keeps them happy.

in the middle are the majority of my shops, above this is the main dining/living level, and down a few z levels below this is the many levelled hollowed out water caves area, which should prove interesting for adventurers. right now they lack water.

again, i did not sit down and plan this level. it sort of grew, first with me thinking i needed a few little rooms to store stuff for the shops, then with me going crazy and making the entire left side, then with the long hellish task of me trying to replicate it on the three other sides.

the passage down leads to some of the stuff im working on for advanturers, and you can see the dam down there.
