The caravan arrived as promised. My report to the King is not a good one, I have yet to get any research at all done. The caravan has a special request, seems that there's a high demand for dwarven cheese and noone has been supplying it. I suspect if we corner this market we could get whatever we want from the caravans. We need to get into the caverns for farming anyway, might as well trap a few purring maggots while we are down there.4th of Opal 100
"Troglodites! Troglodites in the caverns!" Some dwarf came running up from the mining "Just thought you might like to know." Then fell asleep.
"Do they have a way into here?"
"No, we haven't gotten a stairwell all the way down yet, but the stairwell is open to the cavern so we can see them." Talvieno reported.
"Well just for extra protection we need some hatches set up to ensure the safety of the town. And would some dwarf get the bedrooms finished? I think we are all a bit tired of sleeping on the ground... and stepping over others who are."1st of Granite, 101
One year in, and the town is shaping up reasonably. We have bedrooms up for every dwarf, we are getting closer to breaking into the cavern, and preparations have begun for creating some water in case anyone gets injured long enough to need it. The entire stock has been moved down to the proper level, and we have enough to last us a few seasons longer.20th of Slate, 101
Even more migrants, seems the warning I gave about the difficulties did reach some ears. Only two this year. Lady took the tally.

A wereiguana ambushed the new immigrant couple. The new waxworker tried to fight it off. She was beaten to death then the creature turned back into a human and ran off. We are creating a burial ground now. The husband volunteered for military duty.7th of Felsite, 101
The first daughter of LostPages was born today. A happy note after the last entry to be certain. I doubt she will be the only one though. This many couples around, I suspect we are in for a deluge of children.
