The suggestion made by Kagus is also great and more viking-y as the pyramid. So for now I will go with small earthen graves for each of them.

Maybe our heroes get something special, but for now there is no room and no material to build "great" stuff.

Sounds good enough-- Small graves with a statue headstone is fitting enough for our fallen.

Although I think we should insist that the statues be built from stone to withstand the test of time--perhaps it would be a good excuse to mine out a few boulders... That and good non-burning material for our forge now that we have an anvil   :roll:

If you want a more impressive memorial, build a wall over the entrance tile instead of a floor, and then place a statue on top of that pillar.  It does a nice job of sealing the place, too.

Expedition Log, 27th Sandstone 1052

Our tame Cougar is now guarding the entrance against possible kobold thieves. I am confident that she will be able to kill such whimpy creatures.

The small earthen tomb for Bullion has been finished. A coffin is in place, but we still lack access to stone for the headstone.

Maybe we should expand and create a quarry in the east.

Bullion is back from the wilderness, looking truly miserable. He refuses to eat anything and just drags himself around in front of the meeting hall. We can't do anything to help him.

Expedition Log, 19th Timber 1052

Bullion is dead. He died in front of us, directly in the meeting area of our dining room. Apparently he starved to death, even though we had enough food.

He was just to miserable to eat something.

Expedition Log, 27th Moonstone 1052

The recent death was offset by a joyful occasion today.

The parents have not yet decided how to name their child.

Sunshine for everydwarf! Let the celebrations begin.

Construction of the Tree House Outlook is nearly finished.

Kurga's Logbook:

Brave Bullion. In the end he gave his life defending this village from the foul lycanthropes that patrol our boarders...

He withered away on the floor of our dining hall. I was present at the time, filling mugs with Elvish wine that we ... liberated from its foolish elven masters.

I'm no archetect, I'm just a humble brewmistress, but the plain grave for one of our heroes didn't sit right with me. I spoke to our expidition leader and he reassured me that once we get a quarry going we will construct a statue befitting of Bullion's deeds. We had a good discussion about it and I left reassured that Bullion's deeds would be forever remembered by topping his tomb with a headstone adorned with the bones of the warewolves he fought to protect us from.

So, how exactly did Bullion get wounded?

Anyways, diary.


"Woden's diary.

This outpost seems pretty peaceful. Small military, mostly above ground.
Still, I think it's worthy of taking over. Once Icky gets here we can begin the "Operation".
Meanwhile, I have to-

Dammit! That annoying outpost manager entered my room again!
I fear he suspects something, although without any proof I'm safe.
He'll never find this diary.

I'll have to start gathering "associates" soon."
