Now how am I to drain this moat?

Check out the southern pump, I added a release valve over there.

I was studying that.  But I have this idea of using the aquifer as drain...
Code: [Select]
z100 _     _  surface
z 99 h77777w  sand loam / moat. h=channel this last.
z 98 BW.....  yellow sand - dig here. B=raising bridge; W=constructed wall.
z 97 hww^www  red sand (aquifer) h=channel above to expose aquifer

Now to fill it, need to have a building to pump up water to fill moat, even with built in water reactor.

I'll take a break from playing tonight and look over my notes. 

My last save is 12th Felsite, 240, Late Spring.  No crash.
I cheese it by creating a empty stockpile which prevent growth.   
Then I slowly remove an area and floor it with rock salt blocks. 

As much as I want to bring magma up by the minecart loads, I have to dig for it and find it still.
I'll just think on if I want to drain the moat and refill using the aquifer.

The body parts are getting dump as fast.  So I have a solution for that.  But the submerged body parts will be a problem if not addressed now.

How big is a giant hamster, really?
Bigger than a grizzly bear, smaller than a tiger. More cunning and predatory than both put together.

Chapter 3 (Mandate #1 Clear Glass)

Not even a minute in my way to the barracks when mayor and trader Quasar approached me with her papers to sign, and questions…

Quasar asked, “what did ‘he’ offer you?” emphasizing on “he.”

I paused a moment, then looked her in the eyes and whispered, “my own drowning chamber.”

That seemed to impress her in my “sacrifice.”

We met the manager, Hiddenleafguy in the hall and we sat for a moment for drinks and talk.  I am mostly interested in the drinks.

We talked about my Clear Glass mandate.  Besides the bags, sand, ash, potash, pearlash to make raw clear glass, it also needs to be processed into clear glass blocks for construction. 
I will assign four citizens, “ClearGlass Duty” with all the necessary labor and see how they progress to 420 clear glass blocks.

The digging may begin, but the indoor farm will have to wait.

scribbled on a note: Build 2 Glass Furnace, 1 Kiln, 1 Ashery, 2 Clothier Shop-make bags, Next roof, Build 2 Wood Burners, 1 Kiln, 1 Ashery.

Chapter 4 (Mandate #2 Expanded Burrows)

“The moat surrounds Breadbowl, and has walls for the most part.  This grant flexibility to work outside still,” I argued. 

“Outside is not pleasant every time,” mused Quasar.  “We must set aside time for merrymaking.”

Me, “How about I separate ‘Outside In-Wall’ burrow, and add ‘Wall Construction’ burrow for the duration?

Mayor Quasar, “I will agree to that if only active times are when the weather is clear.”

“Agreed,” as I touch mug with Quasar and drank rye beer.

Hiddenleafguy dreamily stares at the rock salt statue of hippos.

Chapter 5 (Mandate #3 More Stone)

“1,250 stone blocks exactly, nothing more,” reads May from her books.

“And the stones themselves,” I inquired.

“Twelve,” she said in a nasal tone, “is that all, I am busy.”

May is our bookkeeper and chief medical dwarf, and is quite unfriendly and disagreeable and will not be content with debate without giving me grief.

“One more, the hospital floor is nice enough with the dirt floor,” I baited.

As if I said something more horrifying than chaining hamster in Commander Taupe’s bed, May blurted out, “that is not acceptable.  Would you like me to take long breaks and attend parties when you most need my skills when they bring you to my bed?”  “My hospital bed, that is,” she added.

In a plaintive gesture, “I will see to it that hospital floor is tiled with smooth rock salt stone blocks Miss May.”

This act placated her and I took my leave muttering, “this is a crying shame to have only 12 stones in Breadbowl.”

I ordered the expansion of the Safe Indoors burrow to include more dig areas down the Mason’s Guild.

Add 3 Mechanic’s shop, and 2 Jeweler’s shop, and 6 separate small stone stockpiles for rock salts.
If rock salts run out, the next level has more, after that, there is quartzites.

Set the 8 Mason’s shop to make rock blocks forever.
Set the 4 Craftsdwarfs’ shop to make rock pots forever.

Chapter 6 (Mandate #4 Metal Equipment)

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Cloth, leather, and rotting headgear should be replaced with metal helms first.

I heard that Iron High Boots encrusted with "swooshes" makes you jump higher, so I ordered for everyone currently wearing rotting footwear.

Iron bar count is low, and I don’t want to use copper. 
Order more smelt hematite and that new magnetite dig.
Order 5 iron helms, 1 iron mail shirt, 4 sets of iron high boots for The Shaft of Fortifying.
Order 1 iron battle axe, 1 set of iron gauntlets, 4 iron helms, and 4 sets of iron high boots for The Earthen Assaults

Book II

Born amongst the scorching shrubs and decaying woods in a terrifying land known as The Hill of Death, a cloud of profane smoke drifts from the east.  Formless the cloud may be, malice describes its presence for it battled the strong gust winds of The Round Gulf in the southeast long before the history of time.  And so the cloud lingered a top the trees to the north and east where unknown barrier guards The Jungle of Twilight for any westward intrusion and molestation.  The malice intensified as if it paused to witness a slathering of itself further in the west and south lands where the barony "Breadbowl" sprouts, akin to mushroom being trampled.

Chapter 7 (2nd Granite, 240, Early Spring)

“Good morrow, boss” return greeted by the citizens who are laying stone walls above “CLG,” Cloth & Leather Guild building.  The architects ensure me this wooden building will support stone fortifications.

"The air stink," I muttered looking north.  I frowned on this damp weather.  True to my word, the Wall Construction burrow will not be active today.  A “give” to mayor Quasar, and me “take” to keep Outside In-Wall burrow active in building this fortification.

"Watch," Neighborhood Watch, reports in and alerts to activate Safe Indoors burrow.
A goblin scouting party has been spotted emerging from the west-northwest.

This is trouble that will be handled. 

A vile force of darkness has arrived!

Ensuring all citizens are within the walls, a well-crafted microline lever awaits in the center of the hall for the order to pull.

“Shafts,” The “Shafts” of Fortifying, and “Earthen,” The Earthen Assaults muster behind CLG, Watch will gather inside.

All constructions have been cancelled.  “Who is pulling the lever?”

“No one.”

“Do it now!”

“Preliminary report?”

ooc: I post this now to get it moving instead of many more edits.  I hope it's "concise legible" enough.  I also want to finish the dramatis personae post because I need to refer to it as I write. Feedback is appreciated if the tale spinning make sense. Thanks.

Chapter 8 (First Blood)

Alath of Watch calmly relayed, “I counted 40 goblins coming from the north west.  A pack of 6 trolls strides along. One of the goblin scouts has been captured in the cage trap.”

Taupe bellowed, “pull the lever!” and points to Likot of Watch, “to the hall, emphasize ‘do it now’ to whomever remains sober. I want that lever pulled now.”

It’s only discipline that Shafts remain on station rather than charging the incoming squad of goblins.

One, two, three of the green creatures are on the bridge already.

Taupe, “Let them come in within the walls.  Earthen, hold this CLG position. Watch prepare to move to Butcher building on my command.  Shaft, march to Boneyard.”

--

“Ahhrewww,” cried Tode who is trapped in a wooden cage that blended between trees.  “No! No leave,” he pleaded, “I join raid, I join glory,” to no effect for he is left behind by the scouting party.

“Halt,” commanded Bax but the lack of discipline with the three recruits is lost to the promise of bloodshed.  Instead of slowing down in caution, eyeing suspiciously the long slab of stone spanning the murky moat, Utes overtook his point position.

With little choice, he hesitantly followed to his dismay.  Bub also tried to overtake him on the narrow bridge.  Bax stepped on Bub’s left foot and they almost tangled over.  In that moment, stone grinding noise filled his ear as the bridge start moving to retract beneath the earth.

Zom’s momentum from behind will lead to an eventual crash on to Bax and Bub, unless she does something athletic…  Zom used Bub’s foot to step up, and Bax’s shoulder to vault over them and ahead.  It would have been an impressive feat if not for the bridge disappearing. 

Splash! Some faint cheering can be heard beyond the walls.

Bax glimpsed Utes making it across before tumbling onto the submerged loamy upright slope.  His spear tip poked his left eye, leaving it mangled beyond recognition.

Bub fell in the murky water with a bruised left foot.

Zom, having hang time momentum shifted midair into a perfect swan dive and floated in the middle moat, unhurt.

--

And splash!  The bridges of Breadbowl retracted to the jovial cheer, of a mechanic? Medtob ‘Tick Slayer,’ mechanic and VIP citizen with baby Lusle is by the Butcher building with some other citizens observing out here.

Taupe orders, “Sanctume, escort these fine citizens to Safe Indoors.”

Mason Lord Brassroast, and Brewer Tonnot are among the citizens being escorted. 

Taupe orders, “SQman, see to it that Philosopher Aristotle in the farm also go Safe Indoors.”
SQman runs north and talked to Aristotle and some time later, Aristotle starts following Sanctume to the hall with the others.

--

Of the four goblins leading the scouting party, Utes is the first to step on the road inside Breadbowl.  She howls a war cry, “Araaguyyy,” unobserved that she is alone.

While Shafts are waiting for a clearer battlefield, Utes followed the wall curving north. 

Taupe orders to move Shafts north and intercept Utes; and to avoid line of sight of the west bridge at all cost.

But Utes is quite fast and rushed onto the Boneyard where a stray puppy is busy chewing on boar bones.

Cackling in glee, Utes charges, and shakes the puppy violently, and punches it in the head collapsing its skull.  Utes began bathing in puppy blood, moaning in contentment.

Kubuk who is amazingly agile, traverses through the Butcher doors and approach from the blindside of Utes.  Kubuk executes “Cat on Hot Sand” sword form, punching the right lower leg bruising it to distraction and followed up with a slash to the left lower leg to gash opened an artery!

“How fragile we are… begone fear,” screamed Utes striking Kubuk.

Kubuk does a “Cutting the Clouds” with block and follow up counter with upper slash on the right upper arm.  The resulting mayhem is another opened artery, many nerves severed and tendons torn.

“Death… This is truly horrifying,” says Kubuk as she stabs her iron short sword through Ute’s skull.  FIRST BLOOD!

The immediate area is clear.

ooc: edit 10/05: Added "Chapter 9 Siege Unit Report."

Chapter 9 (Sword Form)

Shafts station at Boneyard, Earthen remain outside CLG (Clothing & Leather Guild).
Activate Outside In-Wall Burrow, and get this fortification built on top of CLG.

--

Back in the hall, the duke spills beer and slurring “pull the lever.”
To the merrymen of the crowd, everyone follows suit and chants, “pull, pull, pull...”

--
Atuk who was lagging behind for a member of the scouting party witness Zom dive in the moat.  Atuk waded in and swim across the moat, and climbs up the gaping entrance.

Taupe points at Atuk who ducks in the murky pools in the southwest, “he is near the bridge gap, so rushing him would expose anyone to goblin archers.  Wait him out.”

Atuk manages to sneak further south of the CLG and strikes at Axeman Olon of Earthen who blocked.  This ruckus scared the construction workers, and scattered about fleeing. 

Olon hacks Atuk’s left upper arm. Captain Vortex hacks the left shoulder, lodging her iron battle axe in the wound. 

Atuk flees up the ramp on top of CLG.

Marksdwarf Kogan shoots Atuk in the right lower arm with a silver bolt, “Our time in The Dimension of Visions is so brief… This does not scare me.” 

Olon gave chase and decapitates Atuk’s head with her iron battle, “Gruesome wounds! Begone fear!”

Captain Vortex, “Can it all end so quickly? Begone fear!

--

Back in the hall, Hiddenleafguy was swayed at the chanting, and pulls the lever repeatedly in tune to “Ol’ Miners Find.” “hi-ho, hi-ho, …”

--

“No! Retract that bridge now,” bellowed Taupe.

--

Nako is on point of diamond formation, spear glistening forward.
Bosa and Kuts flank each side with crossbows.
Az completes the rear with his bow.

The bridge retracts and the goblin assault squad crosses unchallenged and unscathed. They immediately ducked into the murky pools.

--

Taupe ordered, “Cancel Outside In-Wall burrow.  We...”

Time slowed enough to observe the last drops of Ute's blood, the slayer of puppy, drips off the iron short sword.  As if it was a signal, the last twitch of the puppy's life jolted Kubuk free.

“Nooooo,” mouthed Taupe as Kubuk does "The Boar Rushes Down the Mountain" towards the murky pool.
Silver bolts and arrows alike spews out of the ditch, all missing.

“Come back here Kubuk,” ordered Taupe, but then hand signals to the rest of the squad.

Nako with spear surfaced up.  Bosa crawls up awkwardly and loading a bolt.

Az mutters below the murky pool, “Has the tide turned? I must press on!” Az jumps out of the ditch and quickly shoots his bow.

The lone Kubuk charging, ducks below the silver arrow from Az.

Nako lunges the spear for a head shot and missed.

Kubuk dodges another silver arrow from Az.

“Plucking the Low-Hanging Apple” sweeps low that mangled Nako’s right root.

Nako says, “Those injuries… Begone fear” as he falls over.

As if retreating, Kubuk continues to dodge flying iron bolts, copper bolts, and silver arrows.

“Heron Wading in the Rushes” surprised and knocked over Bosa as Kubuk charges with ferocity and connecting a shield bash to Bosa’s left lower leg. 

Taupe, Tekkud, Fairybrow and Sanctume follow behind Kubuk’s wake. 
“Watch move to Boneyard, Earthen stay as reserve,” ordered Taupe.

Nako’s spear strike is blocked.  The “Viper Flicks Its Tongue” stabs the left elbow causing the iron sword to lodge in the wound.  Ligament and tendon torn, Nako loses hold of his iron shield and gives into pain.

Bosa stands up but was shield bashed on the left lower leg, “I’ve been wounded.  It’s annoying” and fails to reload iron bolt.

Kubuk shield bashes the head of Bosa, but wood is deflected by the copper helm. 

Kuts shoots a copper bolt that missed. “Threading the Needlle” slashed through Kuts’ kidney, and shield bash broke bone to his right lower arm.  Kuts gives in to pain despite the repeated shield bashes to the head are deflected by copper helmet.

The grinding noise of the retracting bridge finally stopped giving no more easy path for the invaders to come in.
