The rest of the late summer months had been mostly uneventful. We finally dug out enough bedrooms (Literally the minimum amount, I advise digging more) to house our current populance. The dining room is mostly
furnished, as is the statue garden. We have a nice metalworking, carpentry, ceramic, (and sub adequate masonry) industries set up, with many iron weapons and pieces of armor having been constructed. We're running very
low on coal, and our fuel stocks are dwindling, so I've started to explore the depths for a source of fuel...
Success! I was awoken by a dwarf, (Whose name I cannot remember for the life of me) telling me several veins of coal have been discovered! Just in time too. Not in time however. We ran out of fuel and I had to manually tell my metalsmiths and furnace operators to get
their sorry asses
back to work. Lazy shits...
I hear news of a dwarven caravan arriving tommorrow? Perhaps our luck shall hold!
Not a chance... The caravan arrived today. With many goods, and many, many ambushers
. I counted 8 kobold thieves, at least 10 warlock snatchers and 3 goblin snatchers. My newly enlisted macedwarf was killed by a warlock, who fired a bolt of lightening at him, causing him to bleed out from literally
every orifice of his body. Nasty. I'm in the hospital again
with broken arms, as a warlock got lucky and hit me with some sort of energy beam... We killed most of the snatchers. In other news our new marksdwarf squad ran out of ammo when attacking a goblin snatcher and proceeded to beat the goblin to death, only for all of them to fall unconscious due to fatigue
They look so cute when they're sleeping!!
Oh well. The trading went well. I traded several clay crafts for a bar of platinum, a bar of slade, pig tail seeds, logs, thread, leather, cloth, a mastiff, a few plants, and one piece of lousy frickin coal. I had to give them 1K in urist bucks in profit
for those cheap bastards to part with the stuff... I promptly transmuted the platinum into steel for our fledgling weapons/armor industry. Anyway, I've been called back to the mountainhomes as some
noble needs a new assistant... or something... Goodluck to whoever is running this pit in my absence! I'd advise using the steel bars/slade bar (Actually I think I used the slade bar) and i've just set up an amrory.. use it to make copper
plates and start making us platemail! Oh and I forgot to mention build a lever for the bridge spanning the river. may be useful.
