Firegear - 1051 Late Summer by Markavian

Map Description:

Autumn has almost rolled round bring a cool breeze to the end of summer. The salty pools dry, but the dwarves have carved out a hearty home for themselves.

Point of Interest: Quarry Lookout

( 1051 Late Summer → onwards )

This small lookout tower is built alongside the quarry wall, separating the stripmine from the beach. The wall was originally to prevent ocean waves from splashing water down into the excavations. The wall now serves two purposes; as a defensive barrier, and as a shortcut between the highlands. Marksdwarves can keep watch over this route and possibly cut off attackers making their way off the map. - Markavian

I love the way you just move in and merge fortress and landscape so fluidly. This is such a unique layout for a fortress; I'm always building stuffy little square ones, so you have my applause and admiration for taking on something so unique.

On a side note, what is the tileset you're using for this? I don't think I've seen it before.

Bedroom layout is stylish.

Hey Chayfox, the tileset is my own, available off my user page on the wiki or from the graphic tilesets page with a revised version of Sphr's object graphics for 12x12.
