Frostbridged - 306 Early Spring by Demonic Spoon

Map Description:

Another year has passed. Only a few more days left before the new version comes out, I hope I get all the stuff I wanted to do done. Didn't do as much as I would have liked this year, though the smelting of ores is coming along nicely. The Dungeon Master arrived this year. Soon after all the creatures on my map starting popping babies like crazy. After consulting the raws I realised what I had done wrong, I had put in pet_exotic in the creatures I wanted to let breed instead of pet. The troglodytes are happily popping out more babies as are the lizardwoman but so far sadly no giant batlings.

Point of Interest: The Great Wagon Massacre of the Summer of the Year 305

It was the summer of the year 305. The humans had just arrived at the site and were making their way to the fortress. The dwarves of Frostbridged anxiously waited inside, hoping that the caravan would make it safely inside behind the trap lined entrance before the inevitable goblin ambush showed up. When the wagons had just reached this spot, and the dwarves had thought the danger past, disaster struck! Two goblin ambushes set upon the caravans at once! The dwarves, from their viewing point inside the safety of th fortress, gave a collective resigned sigh, thinking that this would be the end of the human caravan. The caravaneers thought otherwise. Using ancient wagoneering techniques passed down form one human wagoneer to the next, the wagoneers urged their animals to great speeds and RACED OVER THE GOBLINS, CRUSHING THEM INTO A BLOODY PULP BENEATH THE WAGON WHEELS OF JUSTICE and riding on into the fortress, leaving the caravan guard to deal with the few remaining, heavily wounded, prone, unconscious survivors.

Tl;DR: The Human Caravan's Wagons rode over the goblin ambush parties, killing and wounding them.

I'd wanna see this map continue just to see how crazy the pillar of history gets. Knowing the game, it will probably consist of:
-Founding of Frostbridges
-First leader of Frostbridges
-Artifacts made in the fort
-Finding the HFS
-The guy who engraved any of the top things (lol recursion)

Maybe you'll get lucky and get a cool one, though.

In reply to your wagon and doors Points of interest crash. I'm planning to make a museum type thing for the wagon, a history of the founding of the fortress etc etc. As to the door I just like doors and place as many of them as a I can, the happy thoughts are just a side benefit.

A comment on your "Aqueduct to be" POI.

...Yeah water is almost completely ineffective against the clowns. Either they evaporate it or can swim through it. Only the hentai clowns can drown.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that horrible feature of the clowns, I guess instead of flooding their funhouse I'll just make a nice waterfall into the red pit of endless clowns for the future royal quarters I'm planning on placing there once the clowns have been evicted for crimes against dwarfanity.

You know, I'm sorta surprised that you still have just a line of cage traps defending your fortress. You seem like the kind of person that would build a ridiculous (and probably very messy) fortress defense system.
