Sparkgear 3 - 207 Late Winter by nahkh

Map Description:

After nil's turn, July 7

Point of Interest: Nahkh's Tour - 3 - Inside the Overfortress

This is where the original settlers made their home, back in the year 201. As you can see, none of the usual decorations are in place, which reflects the brief and violent history of the overfortress.
To the east we have the gate control mechanisms. Each outer lever is connected to one of the entrances, and the middle lever opens the Low Gate. The Low Gate was designed to allow safe passage to the underfortress, but it was not finished during Nahkh's lifetime.
To the west we have the original dining room, since converted to a common crypt to house GearSpark's many honored dead. It is disputed whether Nahkh himself had anything to do with the design, as many experts feel it exhibits none of his usual flair. It is most likely it was designed and built by one of his many apprentices.
Further down the corridor we have the original farms, as well as the kitchens, still in their original furnishings. The farms and kitchens were abandoned along with the overfortess in favor of a more defensible position. The food storage is of course long gone.

Now if you'll step with me a floor down... - Nahkh_

Hey, do those fortifications work as drains over at your farms?

"The magma fortress" should of course be "The magma forges

Demonic Spoon, while I appreciate the enthusiasm, if you're just asking about what something does do so on the board or here in the comments instead of cluttering the PoIs too much. (Also, marking something obvious like the farms isn't exactly necessary either)

That PoI on the farms is very necessary. How are we supposed to know what those farms are for?

Argh, creepy. I've never seen a magma lake like that before... I've never seen it done!

That magma lake makes me proud, Toony. I told myself I would not cry...

It's not done yet, if I get another turn I'll do the other half.
