Wetbolt - 191 Mid Summer by Caranha

Map Description:

Wetbolt, founded in 190, is a fortress located in a Valley right between the Gobbos and a Warring elven civilization. It's surroundings are untamed wild jungles.

So every dwarf that embarked had some sort of military training, and I loaded up on weapons.

However, all the danger I saw so far came from rampaging deers...

This is the fortress after one and a half years. I wanted to post something earlier, but my first map got corrupted somehow. There is no overarching plan for the fortress, but I have some projects in mind already.

Point of Interest: Immigrant Quarters

Even when I have other plans for sleeping acommodations (this time twarted by a Limonite Vein), it seems that I always fall back to this design when the immigrant waves start to pour in. - Caranha

I'm liking the setup you have here. The central shaft looks a bit scary, I wouldn't want to fall down there, but the lower levels are well decorated. The multiple entrances and exits make the whole place much more interesting to navigate.

Try hiding the stones along the river channels.

Thanks Markavian!

I have already hidden the stones: the channels will look much cleaner for the next update.

But multiple entrances and exits? What do you mean? The Fort has pretty much only one entrance: the green bridge over the magma.

Not entrances as such, but you've got paths at the top of the map which have been walled off that are only accessible from inside the fort.

Oh yeah, those :-D

I wanted to mine the magnetite that I could see from the hills, so I dug to them from inside the fortress... the walled off parts are places where I got careless with the digging designations X.X

Neat waterfall design here!

Thanks! I had to add a few more grates, though, because the 9 golden grates are not able to contain all the flow...

I'd suggest the baron has an appointment with the magma. ;)

The Baron Consort has behaved this year. (he was the one who was ordering adamantine items). The Baroness, on the other hand, has never done anything other than ordering the production of armor stands.

Sure, whatever - you don't mind them being built of rhyolite, do you mam?

Big fan of that wall of knowledge.
I'm sure that the prison may be depressing, but the heat probably makes it quite comfortable.

For some reason I want to see trees growing in and around the extended green house... request: potted plants and tree planting skills for DF.

Submitted by: Dakira - 2008-11-05 to 198 Late Summer

Request Seconded.

Love the fortress, specially the treasure room and the wall of history.

Noice work :-D

Submitted by: Caranha - 2008-11-06 to 198 Late Summer

Thanks Salmeuk!

Dakira/Mark - It would be great if I could have trees lining the road to the fortress. Next I'll try an arrangment of walls/statues/channels that block all other Caravan-paths into wetboat.

Submitted by: Dakira - 2008-11-13 to 200 Early Autumn

The statues along the road are a nice addition and it looks like your waterfall over the wall of knowledge has flooded a bit.

I checked the DF suggestions board on the forums and there is already a "planting" suggestion.

Submitted by: Caranha - 2008-11-13 to 200 Early Autumn

Yeah, because of the three water outputs and all the splashing, I get water everywhere whenever I turn the waterfall on.

However, thanks to the many sinkholes, I never get more than 1/7 squares, even if I get a LOT of them.
