My first and only (at the moment) fortress. The design is quite bad I think to run a fortress efficiently; long walks between stockpiles, not really much utilization of the z-levels, but at least it works and I'm learning : )
Here I build the first basic bedrooms and dining room of the fortress. The original dining room is the smaller rectangle room in the northwest. Above it you can see a part of the 'moat' of the first entrance. If you look carefully you can see I had to rebuild a wall since I accidentally channeled through the roof of the hall. A bit to the south you can see the second dining room which I build a little bit later, since there wasn't much space in the first dining room with the extra ornamental walls and columns.
One z-level up are the workshops and stockpiles which create too much noise so I'm planning to at least abandon the bedrooms in favour of those at the bottom of the fortress. - Aquilegia

This is my newest addition to the fortress: The big dining hall. Sadly it's actually TOO big since the 'dining hall' zone doesn't span the entire room. I had to remove a stair and build a table in the middle to cover as much as possible, now only around 5x5 parts on the corners are excluded.
The dining hall can only hold 96 dwarves at the moment if I would only put the tables in the secluded middle parts of the hall (allowing for walking-corridors), although I could of course make it more crowded if I have to. This is my only room currently which is 'royal' but I hope to change this once I got a more efficient and more specialized economy running. Engravings will come later when all my engravers are legendary or when everything is already smoothed. - Aquilegia
