Well... I got the baroness and her baron consort. I also got the tax collector and the hammerer. I had rooms prepared for the noble, with the hammer's room situated conveniently near the base of the cistern.
I've had several more deaths, one I cannot find the cause of, a wood-crafter, and the other a mechanic, beaten to death for failing to produce nickle mugs for the mayor, with our non-existent nickel supply...
I've also finished the outer wall, and survived another goblins siege, although I almost lost this time, as about half way through the fight half my soldiers left and I had to draft the woodcutters to fill in while they ate/drank/slept. I've since had enough backbaks and waterskins made to supply 75 troops, and ordered all my millitary to carry 2 rations of food and some water.
I also raise the towers one z-level, and will probably try to get them a fair bit higher this year.
This is probably one of the busiest parts of the fortress. A smaller, all-glass statue garden sits on the glass roof over the main statue garden in the south-west, and while most parties are held elsewhere, my soldiers like to hang out here whenever they aren't sparring. There are four towers, one in each corner, that all hold extra munitions and supplies in case of a siege, as well as two other towers near the entrance that serve as access to the gate-house.
The small wooded bridge in the south goes over my 2-tile wide "moat", which is fed by the brook. The animals on the right are chained in breeding groups, and are one of my largest sources of income. The farms between the southern towers and the gate-house towers are my only source of outdoor foods, and are typically growing strawberries.
The refuse piles, kennels and trade depot can all be seen here, along with the lower level of the keep that serves as one of the two main barracks in the fortress. The only other thing of note is the small hole near the glass pump, that is filled with water as a visual warning if a goblin steps on the pressure-plates near the edge of the map. - timmeh
