Relicsteel - 208 Mid Summer by gades1313

Map Description:

My 5th or 6th Fortress. Still a work-in-progress with projects uncompleted. With a name like Relicsteel steel should be in abundance in the fortress, yet alas I have yet to find any iron ore. All iron has come from Goblins thus far, and besides some suits of armor, steel production hasn't been a priority.

Point of Interest: The Old Bridge and Killing Field

The Old Bridge was originally the only way up to the plain that held the fortress entrance. Traders and besiegers then had to pass through the narrow path before entering the heart of the plain. In the event of a siege, the bridge was raised to allow the military time to get into position, then lowered allowing the enemy access. Once a good-sized amount crossed, the bridge was again raised, trapping the enemy. My champions then usually engaged in a slaughter. - gades1313

I like some of the perimeter concepts here - having a large valley all to yourself, for example, where you can farm trees with impunity. That's pretty cool!

When digging out your obsidian farm, use ramps instead of channels. You should be able to just designate the whole thing to be mined out in one go, versus doing single lines of channel designations.
