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: Fractal bedrooms

these were the first bedrooms i made, and where my dwarves moved after sleeping in the dining room above this, which doubled as a barracks when i started.

this is the first time ive tried fractals and i dont really like this arrangement i have here much. i like my dwarves with 3 by 3 rooms, its more interesting to come back and explore as an adventurer, so im considering hollowing out these rooms and making them into something else. there is plenty of space down on the much nicer main living area.

just above and below are some small dining rooms, which turned out in a nice arrangement due to their being made for stairs access to the bedrooms you see here.

lower end of the screen is the start of my farming and food stockpiles. i allways have too much food, which is demented considering ive only got 2 farm plots going at any one time and over 200 dwarves. there are two fisherman as well, and when i had migrants i used to make them all into hunters. - Cheshire Cat
