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.
I decided early on to stick with a modular design, so every room is a 12x12 block, and serves a specific purpose. The bedroom blocks each house 8 dwarves, and contain a chest for the dwarf's personal belongings. The dining rooms each have 15 tables and 15 chairs, while the workshop blocks have room for 4 workshops, and some extra space for temporary stockpiles. Each storage block has a 3-wide path, and has space for 100 barrels, bins or whatever else I feel like sticking in them.
The stairway (actually they're ramps...) blocks are unusual, in that they are actually 10x10, but are otherwise empty and boring aside from the ramps or stairs. You may have noticed the strange round block near the south-east corner. That is a small cistern, filled by the brook whenever necessary, and is the primary in-door water source for my fortress. - timmeh
