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: Where it all started

As the wagon was lapped the shores of the ocean and pushed things around, it was clear it was no place to burn down the hundreds of sand and lye brought on embark.

At the time, the entire-sea-sealing fire clay and wood walls weren't even dreamed of. Up went tower-cap walls, and then, a little exploit:

Coins stockpile on the items on the ground, then digging ramps underneath. All the gear dropped down without breaking the floor for ocean.

As the area was plentiful in kaolinite, beyond clear glass production I used this place for porcelain block and statue production. The minecart tracks you see above were used to transport raw materials to bridge. Altogether, I emptied 6 kaolinite large clusters in addition to the hundreds of clear glass blocks I made.

This wasn't enough, but I found replacements. - 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.
