For my next fortress, I want to make a fur trading post.
Short-term goal: Either hunt or farm fur (maybe both?) - Which leads to my question, do any animals actually have fur besides trolls?
Medium-term goal: Have a thriving "fur" industry. Every dwarf not feeding the fort must make fur! Also, some sort of defence might be necessary. Maybe dogs? They fit well with trading posts, right?
Long-term goal: Fur harbor! From the fortress and into a vast ocean, a pier for docking ships. A grand lighthouse (magma at the top? Perhaps! Though that took forever for me last time). And perhaps a bronze/copper statue. Just because.
Overall though, the question remains: Do any animals have fur or should I just presume that leather is good enough and try to make a consistent industry out of that?
