Ceilingact - 302 Early Spring by Phlamethrower

Map Description:

Ceilingact - ice hovel.

A group of foolhardy dwarves on the run from the orcs decided to try building a home in the middle of a glacier. Although the magma pipe gives them heat, at the end of the first year they have no water and precious little farm land. Although the entrance has modest defenses there is no military, and it is only a matter of time before the orcs find them.

Point of Interest: Farm plot #2

( 302 Early Spring → onwards )

This time a wall of rock was kept between the meltwater and the magma pipe. However low magma pressure at the top of the pipe, combined with the extreme cold, meant that only a small amount of ice melted before the cooled and dried. - Phlamethrower

Operation GET WELL SOON was a complete success!

By which I mean it failed.

Although it succeeded in generating lots of water and killing a kitten, the water then promptly ran straight down the funnel and out a hole in the bottom of the map.

Well, you learn something new every day.

You managed to make a mini chasm by accident? How freaking cool is that.

Do Dwarves actually freeze if their beds aren't close to magma?

Sealing the fort with magma... ?

Well, it keeps the orcs out.

Everyone died, BTW. A goblin seige turned up just as the last baby died, so the goblins ended up claiming victory.
