Beat me to it, lol.  I just got home, and will be gone most of next week.  The library is yours, sir.  I'll update the list of who needs a Dwarf and leave that to you.

I'd like a dwarf.
Feel free to pester Deus now :P

Huh, correction to my "1500" pig tails: Add potash. Also, use two burrowed farmers for 50 tiles. It's been so long I had completely forgotten about the second, and had forgotten to mention the first.

I'd like to be dwarfed as the raid leader if that's not taken yet. Name can be "Dozebom," that's the usual abbreviation. It's a bit different from my usual dwarfing tendencies, but I'll be a book-recovering soldier. That's pretty awesome.

I'd also like to be added to the turnlist.

FF: can't you make glass book bindings? I know that for some reason, you can't make glass scroll rollers, but I could have sworn I saw bindings in the list.

Edit: the wiki explicitly states that glass can make book bindings, and implies that glass can make scroll rollers as well. I know that the latter implication is false, unless I'm just very bad at finding options on a list. But perhaps the two tools are inexplicably different. It's annoying, since scroll rollers are far more useful. They're simpler to use as well.

Eh, like you said, quires work fine.

Um, you totally can make glass scroll rollers. From my last post in Solstice Chronicle:

(The magnetite ones are the random ones.)

If you can't find the option, you can always use manager (useful with, say, instruments or metal mechanisms as well).

(I'm going for scrolls since they keep the name of copy in item name plus can be decorated further (ex an image of the battle with buzzard in named buzzard bone) and produced preemptively.)

Deus Asmothís Journal - 301
1st of Granite
So it appears Iím taking charge of this fortress for the time being. To be honest, I took the position of chief medical dwarf here to get away from the capital. Start over somewhere quiet and all. I wasnít really looking to be in control of anything, but with only fifteen of us here so far I imagine itís more of an honorary title than anything else. For now though, Iíve ordered the others to finish off the outer walls, since it looked like there might be a few ways around corners for agile invaders. Weíre also going to dig a well inside the walls Ė after all, a hospital is going to need some fresh water.

18th of Granite
The miners reported finding cassiterite while digging some exploratory shafts. Since we already have copper ore in one of the lower levels, weíll be able to smelt bronze as soon as we get some proper forges up and running.

26th of Granite
Some migrants have arrived from the capital. At first I didnít pay them much attention, but they didnít stop coming for a while. This brings our total number up to forty-one dwarves, though six of them are but children. One of the migrants is apparently a legendary gem cutter, but Iíve never heard of him before.
17th of Slate
Our expedition leader, Asmel Kudustoddom has been running about, possessed by forces unknown. Weíre keeping an eye on him, but with any luck he should come out the other side with no ill effects.
23rd of Slate
Asmel has completed a millstone that he claims is going to be a family heirloom of his. I donít really see what sets it apart from other millstones, but heís very proud.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
30th of Felsite
Spring draws to a close with no sign of any traders. Weíre still trying to get more bedrooms to accommodate all the new arrivals, but the fortress is doing well.

Deus Asmothís Log Ė 301
15th of Hematite
A dwarf called Meng Shemasiz arrived today to study in the library. He claims to be a naturalist, though heís wearing a full set of clothes.

30th of Hematite
Another group of migrants arrived, bringing out population to fifty-three. Several dwarves had some medical training, so Iíve established a second library beside the hospital where we can hopefully share our learning and perhaps even advance our knowledge a bit.

22nd of Galena
One of the planters decided he wanted to make a millstone as well. Iím hoping this doesnít mark the beginning of a trend.

10th of Limestone
Our outpost liaison has arrived, along with traders from the Mountainhome. With any luck theyíll have something worth buying.

14th of Limestone
King Zultan has given birth to a baby girl. One of the stray sows has also given birth to piglets, which are significantly more useful to our fortress in the short term.

15th of Limesone
The others decided to elect a new mayor while Asmel, our expedition leader was in the middle of speaking with the outpost liaison. The liaison doesnít appear to have taken kindly to this, and left without finishing the trade deal.

18th of Limestone
In the end, we only got one scroll from the merchants. Itís called An Introduction to Anatomies. Hopefully itíll be useful in training any aspiring doctors here.

11th of Timber
Some of the visiting scholars have left, and taken some of our scrolls with them. Iíve banned any visitors from the libraries until we can come up with a better solution.

1st of Obsidian
I've used some migrants that weren't going to be doing anything useful and a visitor to let Dozebom create an... ahem, "acquisitions department". It currently has fourteen members, and will hopefully result in many new pieces for our collection.


Notes for successors:
- So, the militia is mostly untrained at the moment. They have weapons but no armour, and once there are some more members it may be worth separating them out into squads by weapon.
- I'm pretty sure we still need more bedrooms, but I left the miners digging out ores and such for a while.
-The entrance is slightly changed:


Militia barracks is just by the entranceway, and the well it on the top left. The original well is in the middle left, but it turns out that freezes over from late autumn to spring.

- The second library, hospital and church are all on one level here:



- Another fishery might be good since there seems to be a lot of raw fish coming in at the moment. I don't know what to do with all the mussel pearls we have.



I think that's pretty much it. The fort doesn't seem to be on the brink of collapse.

Props to Deus for his enthusiasm on this little project :)  Sadly, every other person who expressed interest has not reported back, so I'm afraid this particular Fort is DoA.  Perhaps the idea can be used as a community Fortress for the aspiring story teller.

Hey, look at that!  Scourge, feel free to take over.  You might even be able to get a few books written, even if it's just copies.  Though having a Dorf write a brand new book would be sweet.

Honestly, I didn't play yesterday, and now I've entered the fort and all the tiles are broken because I don't have the graphics pack or anything else that comes with the LNP

EDIT: I had a tactical victory.... but it MAY have been a strategic error
EDIT:Entire year will be tommorrow
