Fountainnotch - 136 Early Winter by Tharis

Map Description:

Breaking my old pattern of narrative fortresses, I decided to wait until I had something that felt like it'd reached a finishing point. Eleven years in, I think I've reached such a point.

Behold, Fountainnotch, home to the Squashed Gem, duchy of the Puce Arch. Terror of the Torment of Freckles, friend to the Nation of Fangs, tolerant of the Bold Gale. Breeder of cougars, mountain of stoneware, home to the famed Atis Glowdiamond the Eternal Pine of Earth.

Pop: 206
Created Wealth: 2,895,304
Imported Wealth: 407718
Exported Wealth: 36628

Point of Interest: 17 Living Quarters

Before we move down the great curve, I should point out the living quarters, which start below and keep going down. Each room is engraved once occupied, simple four by fours with little variation. The captain's room is a bit bigger, you'll see it on the third floor or so. At the bottom the architect got bored and switched to a flat layout.

Oh, and those brass doors? That's the manager's bedroom. Aban Standardparched and his wife sleep there. You should see how that woman weaves, man...

Oh, whose office? Oh, wait, let me check the marker...

"In memory of Amost Dodokuvar
Born 102
Went missing in the year 130
Baron of The Puce Arch, 129 to 130
Loving husband
Admirer of turkeys"

Of course, we're a duchy now. I always wondered why they wouldn't grant us a duke. I guess once you lose one, that's it.

Ah well, I like my mom better anyways. She keeps us safe. - Tharis

How much FPS do you have in DF2014 with 200+ dwarves?

It was running kind of slow but not horribly. I'll have to start it up and check, I don't usually leave that feature on.

Currently it's at 16 (16.) I have a pretty decent computer, I think.

Don't expect to. It felt finished, so I retired and haven't picked up a new one.
