Finally, after several epic struggles, the internal fortress is ready to be lived in. Getting to this point has been a bit dicey, several mishaps [lost all three initial miners], lack of barrels and beds, several near-tantrum-spirals due to massive casualties fighting off elves and gobos.
Even though things are still a bit messy, currently status as follows:
-internal river and venting systems
-internal farms [and flooding system]
-suspended trade dais [on supports]
-sluse system for purging of 'clutter' on said trade dais and
-catch system for any 'clutter' that might have found it's way onto the trade depot dais
-water-locking system allowing to ensure that all the clutter off the trade depot is actually dead before flushing.
-secondary purge system [aka, fire them out the front gates - for emergencies or when there are hostiles still in the main entrance tunnel]
-all waterways are reinforced with paved road to deter Tower-Cap growth
Tested yet not functional:
-power systems are tested though not hooked up
-magma bottle is nearly ready to be filled, though there are some decisions left to be made regarding magma forging and obsidian generation on the lower levels.
-Discover Magma [rough location is known and close]
-Discover 'Other Features'
-Discover underground pool
-Fill Magma corridor
-Get Forging up and running
-Build the lower warrens
Casualties to date: 53
As a second tier of defense, plans are developing to flood this area with magma. The main entrance will only be accessible by a pair of covered bridges going to a small entrance hut suspended within the magma jacket.
Since plans are still in their infancy, the level of engineering required to pull this off may turn into a multi-decade endeavour. - azemute

Reservoir Top-side is the home to the main well, allowing access to a clean water supply year-round. The well is constructed from gold block and gcs silk rope. - azemute

While main fortress constructions were underway, the establishment of temporary food storage and production was required. These small rooms housed the materials to fuel the main fortress construction.
Originally there were plans to attach these existing facilities to the main fort, but the magma-jacket design will probably take precedence. - azemute

Grated floors to the central trade area catch anything of value that might have been flushed in defense. - azemute

When closed, this gate contains all the water from the reservoir to assure any and all threats are neutralized. When released, any water in the main shaft is evacuated through the proceeding corridor and back into the existing river. - azemute
