Moonhome - 42 Late Autumn by Fleeting Frames

Map Description:

The mountainhome of Rhyming Occult-Palisade. Bred 19 to 146 dwarves over 39 years and 10ish days irl. Trained Hydra, killed 29 megabeasts, built half of a minecart ocean-jump platform for adventurers to get artifacts.

Point of Interest: The Royal Red Moon teems with Life

Ew, vomit. All the dark blue is vomit. I know it is usually green, but changing colours may make bue closer.

The ash-glazed porcelain statues and clear glass bookcases delineate the location zones. For library, this meant building floors to build tables and chairs, then deconstructing those floors.

All the artifact instruments are hosted in the tavern and temple to north and south, with wagon wooden and cobaltite statues. Sadly, being surrounded by ocean on multiple sides, I never got any invited visitors...Oh well.

On the west, there is the library, boasting 88 written objects. Most are imported or copies, granted, but most of the starting seven have written a book there. An adamantine coffer Sardal, and Draltha bone table Omernabar are hosted there.

And in the center, under the floors...Are the royal areas. The reigning queen is queen of the people, ruling alongside the rest of the original seven who hold noble positions and will be the ancestors of the entire dwarven race. Her artiact adamantine bed, native gold coffin, fungiwood table and gold animal trap are for everyone to see. As is the bone bed Inenud of outpost liaison. Altogether this z-level hosts 13 artifacts.

Unfortunately, her lover turned out to be a cheating coward who fled the fortress after it was retired. - Fleeting Frames

Nice tower, wish I could see it in 3D.

Beautiful fortress! Your writeup read like poetry. The moon design is evocative.

Also, it warms my heart that DF can occasionally confuse even the most knowledgeable of players.

Hey, Tharis, finally got that screenshot you asked for, thanks to mifki's 3dviewer

Here's an image of what the person leaving the fort via ocean-pult sees and a link to fort to scroll around in, until mifki takes it down.

Here's another screenshot of the tavern area

And thanks, Salmeuk. ^^;;

Confusion comes easy with forgetting, but I still see new things in DF everytime I spend a day on it.
