Salveday - 1054 by Wang Commander

Map Description:

Mining has been initiated in full. Have legendary armorsmith (copper buckler artifact) and weaponsmith (iron battle axe artifact) and enough steel to build a magma smelter. First task will be to make more steel for a forge, as I used my second bar on an exceptional battle axe.

Point of Interest: Strip Mine

This will never be a pretty fort. - Wang Commander

I feel like I'm in the shadow of Copperblazes, considering it's a glacier map, so I'm going with a low pop limit and a small, rough fort with a frontal focus. Intend to put legendary weaponsmith to work on endless spears, will probably trap entrances heavily or do a moat. The bridge back past the river is a drawbridge, so that's safe.

That's a pretty nifty design. Good work.

I like it, too. Though my wrist aches just looking at it.

Yay for castles, looks really cool. Can't wait to start building maps like this in proper 3D. Also very cool with the glacier.

This would take a ton of work, but have you thought about protecting the castle itself with some blocking channels, then making a channel (maybe multiple) for lava flow into the frontal glacier areas. Also, maybe you can hook each of those bridges up to a switch so they all flipped up.

Added a moat with drawbridge. Not sure on channelling magma to the front yet, with the trade depot like it is, and the fact that I might wind up with a lake, but I'm contemplating nuking the chasm. Made a lever to flip up the bridge that leads behind the river. Will probably do the same with the chasm.

A little barracks, dining room, and plump helmet stash back there by the magma, along with a well, seem to keep the vast amounts of hauling somewhat in check.
