Garlicgrass - 204 Early Autumn by Aquilegia

Map Description:

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 : )

Point of Interest: Dining Hall

( 204 → onwards )

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

This is actually pretty cool fortress already. :)
You are doing very well if this is your first fortress!

Thanks :) I actually read almost the entire wiki before getting started so that might have helped a bit, but I intend to keep playing with this one until I understand also the late-game so my next fortresses won't fail just after I spend days on some magnificent designs for them : )
