The carp catcher appears to have caught three milkfish and two carp, but we have yet to close the floodgates and pump the water out to retrieve the cages.

Along with our dragon, hydra, elephants, warthogs, explosion of lion cubs, more cows than we can throw a steak tartare at, hippos, donkeys, alligators, crocodiles, jaguars, chimpanzees, a pair of musoxes, the usual unstoppable horde of cats and a white-handed gibbon, I think that makes this fortress so overloaded with animals we could probably defend it by just making goblin hordes trigger cage releases that release enough animals to suffocate our foes. And that's not to mention the Giant Tiger we've got somewhere...

Yup, I built that ballista - but back then it was in a good place to defend against any attacks... some time afterwards, somebody built the outer wall and that meant that the ballista would then have nothing to shoot at but fortress inhabitants... oh and possibly elves, leaving the trade depot after having all their possessions seized...

Yup, the line of stones are from the catapult. Mostly diorite, it seems. Someone set things up to train a couple of decent Siege Operators for the various ballistae we have lying around... not a bad idea, but it might be a good idea to build a nice ambush point with a well-placed ballista, rather than our current one which is well behind a couple of layers of defenses, to the point where I didn't anything hostile get anywhere near it in my last year.

It's a salt shaker, not a grinder. We'll just fill it, I think.

Actually it's not a bad example of a motte and bailey, though with the bailey protecting a safe treecutting area rather than a village or anything.

This fort isn't really planned as any particular example of fortress construction, just a normal (slightly chaotic) succession fort. That's turned out to be surprisingly orderly so far...
