agh, my head... ah? my bed! I'm alive! im happy, and now i know what must be done!
proper defenses in the cavern!
seal off the mine! no more digging down!
water for the hospital
instead we shall dig the shallow gold and trade for steel and bronze!
and a caravan! i hope they have plenty of metal.
A blind bear got out of the caverns and has caused trouble,
our troops fought well, one recruit gripped on to the bear by his teeth!
sadly the deaths have caused some tantrums, and in a fit of rage, rody committed murder.
to improve our defenses i order the digging of a magma moat, tragically Ross V fell and was boiled to death in the magma.
we traded with the merchants for some metal, in return we gave them stone and gold crafts (we brought nearly everything with about 10 crafts).
and the liaison gave this notice for what the mountain homes want us to produce;
A FORGOTTEN BEAST IN THE CAVERN! RAISE THE DRAW BRIDGE! oh it's up already? carry on, let's just leave it in there, maybe dig a shaft to drop sieges in.
continued work on defense and on industry, the hospital works well and we are getting a nice pile of gold.
agh goblins, and we don't have any traps because the last overseer has such odd hallways!
ordered everyone into burrows, forgot to include the hospital...
many many dwarfs have died now holding the front, but not a single goblin has passed!
ah... I did some head counting in the meeting hall, and well... 18... and some of our bravest and brightest are dead. are legendary engraver, our metal smiths, furnace operators, farmers... dead by those cursed goblins.
one defensive measure I'm very glad was finished before the attack is a bridge that when raised acts as a wall, this will hold them off till we think of something.
agh, this is quite stressful, an old miner like me doesn't know how to handle a besieged fort. I guess I'll give everybody a proper tour as the goblins are shut out, then we shall decide who will be next.
this is the main living flour, the giant hall is a dining hall, the set of 3 rooms above are statue gardens, with a artifact statue in the middle, the magma forges are producing gold statues for the garden. beside that are the bedrooms, some bedrooms have an office or dining room attached.
The floor above is pretty self explanatory, the forges and stock piles and workshops is all.
then far below is the enclosed section of cavern, the lever next to the bridge opens and closes it.
well my time as leader is up for now.
the next leader can take the fort from me, i just want to go back to being a simple miner.
- Code: Select all
well that's me done. semi-fail, but not as bad as my other autumn.
I ran a bit into spring as i wanted to have the fort in lockdown before handing over, as having the miltry in combat and the doors open would be difficult when you are trying to figure out how the fort ticks.
