Salvestone - 229 Early Spring by Drone

Map Description:

Another Year in Salvstone.
A lot of buildings are taking shape, and the cave river has been found. Not a lot of exploratory mining has happened. I'm intended to search the sedimentry layer first, as a block of magnetite will do nicely for all my iron. A Miner drowned in the cave river.

Point of Interest: Cave river

He Died as he lived, Pickaxing Giant toads to death while drowning in an underground river filled with snakemen. - Drone

This sounds very interesting to me as there are a lot of ways you could go with this.

I had no idea water could freeze in the chasm. Looks like I'll need to rethink a strategy for one of my winter forts.

Build a pool of magma underneath the constructed sections of channel that freeze. ;)

Yeah, putting magma under it, or casting the actual thing out of magma would cause it not to freeze (I think water only freezes if it is outside or under a construction)

So how come coming across garnierite was fortunate considering the lack of wood? What does garnierite allow you to do?

It meant I could make bins and barrels out of nickel, rather than the wood I didn't have.
