Dance of Spears - 448 Mid Summer by RedWick

Map Description:

Dance of Spears in the year 448. I need to uncap my population 'cause running around trying to do anything with only 11 dwarves is really slow.

Point of Interest: Grand Dining Hall

This is the main dining hall of the fortress. 2 z-levels tall. When I build the tall dining halls, I like to engrave the top level as well as the main level, but unfortunately, I ran into soil for the top levels so no engravings. I do have statues of ancient dwarven heros standing watch over the hall though. :D - RedWick

RedWick I love the way you're not ruining my eyes with secondary graphic tilesets. Yes, and the courtyard is the coolest thing yet today. Og my hosh, those farms are just pretty! Looks like glass but I guess it's just microcline because I use a mod in which I can't make anything out of microcline (it's like nuclear waste, won't melt in magma either)

And then to the magma! I suggest you just be very dwarvenly and burn down the jungle! It looks cool! Presuming you have magma to pump on the forest. Also, alcohol is a cool thing to blow up in a magma pit! Else it's pretty useless.

I'm used to the old rogue-likes, so I have a hard time switching over to using a tileset.

As for the farms...I had some miscellaneous microline blocks, and thought it might look interesting. The effect ends up looking like there's a ditch full of water sitting around each farm. I rather like how it looks and I think I'll probably do that sort of thing in future fortresses.

And alas, this map has no magma! In fact, I don't think it has much of anything other than the road running through it. Hehe...
