Moonchannel - 257 Early Spring by Dwarfbux

Map Description:

By other standards perhaps this was a quiet year, but given how peaceful things have been, for the most part, this was an action-packed year!

Two incidences of violence took place. In the first, the human traders had just left the trading depot when one of their guests, a former lady consort, turned into a werewllama and attacked the traders near the edge of the map. She managed to slay four of them before being felled by a fifth, who wandered off the map missing an arm and some buddies.

The other instance of violence came when a roc, Posa Shellshores the Foggy Yell, came to the fortress looking to kill anybody she could find. This roc had something like two-hundred kills to her name during the history of the world, so she clearly knew what she was doing. Sadly for Posa, she got bum-rushed by the fortress military and was slain in rather short order, though she did manage to sever the arm of a marksdwarf and throw her. Luckily the marksdwarf walked away from that fight, and like with the human who killed the werellama, she lost an arm for her trouble.

Lots of megaproject progress has also been made. All in all a good year, and here is to greater things in the future!

Point of Interest: Water power plant

Lots of water wheels will power various contraptions around the fortress. This should provide a large amount of power for a large amount of fun little death traps for people to run through and get killed by. - Dwarfbux

Well... Good luck with DF2014! It's only a few months at most for DF2015. I'm interested by the fact that goblins have joined a dwarven civilization. I had dwarves join goblins, or maybe they were raised from kidnapped dwarves or a clan of dwarves.

Enjoy the improvements, I'll be following your maps from the archive, I like your dwarfcentric playing.

Yeah the entrance doesn't hold a lot of gloom glitter nor glory atm. It's interesting to read how you talk about resourcing. But hey, you're only on year 2!

That was actually at the end of four years. I didn't upload the first few years since I didn't know if I would bust through understanding the military interface this time. Luckily, I did!

Man this is a GREAT fort!

I love the big X hallway in your Legendary Dwarf Quarters level.

When I look at the legendary dwarf quarters, a certain long forgotten feeling emerges... like something falling around the lungs or stomach. Jealousy? Awe? Pride?
