Squashshoot - 1070 Early Spring by Dorten

Map Description:

Another long year. Ballista defences nearly finished, and the last pack of siege operators is being trained.

Three sieges has occured this year with no casualties (except goblin ones). Ballistae made of simple and fine parts SUCK!

Duchess consort all of a sudden become depressive and starved... I wonder which of her negative thoughts did upset her so much: miscarriage or lesser's pretentious dining room? I'm placing my bets on second =P

King prerequisites has been met, and as soon as King arrives I'm going to breach the pits for adamantine and fun. Other than that, I don't have any plans for future. Some stupid megaproject, maybe? Any advice here?

Point of Interest: Minor graphical bug 2

I think making a reverse-waterfall from the brook down there would look cool.

Definitely worth a try, but since I have no chasm or aquifer to flush water into, It should be planned VERY carefully.

impressive indeed. I particularly like the design of your trade depot.

Magma vents usually refill themselves slowly.

It's not a vent, its only pool...

Hey Dorten, the double spacing between the walsl look good yeah, but I don't like your 3x3 blocks of up-down-stairs; if you think about them its like a giant shaft filled with ladders that dwarves can fall down... I prefer building sets of stairs winding down into the fortress.

I'd really like to see what happens with the temple of water. I also like the design of it's chamber.

so I forgot to log in and the captcha was Adamantiumcreamy.

Anyway, my dwarves hardly ever fall down stairs.

Also, you can build floor tiles in the tree-flooded areas to provide roads for the traders.

Yep, I've also never seen a dwarf falling from stairs.

If that ever happens, I will redesign the shafts, but until then I'm happy with what I have.

I have siege engineer and operators, but have no idea of where to place ballistae... Any advice?

I love this fort. If you don't mind I'm going to use it in a DnD campaign!
