Diary of Alias
Chapter 2: Spring
5th Granite 557
It seems that the time an overseer succeeds another is a little off. It is now the new year, but only the second part of my term as overseer. Perhaps progress can be made now that my predecessor's orders have been lifted. We are in okay shape according to the records of supplies and nobody died yet so that's a plus for my term.
Excellent! the dwarves are finally listening to me and progress is being made! Though they still refuse to link up the front gate, I will be making a second small entrance with a gate to circumvent the problem.
13th Granite 557
Rith has finally completed what he was working on -- A copper cabinet. A little bit of history on that artifact, but again, pretty lacking in the menace department.
25th Granite 557
A number of dwarven children appear to be dying of dehydration and starvation...in the food and drink supply storage...Perhaps the orders of one my predecessors still affects them. I will have a talk with them and tell them that order is lifted.
I've also designated an area to place many coffins to respect the fallen and their sacrifices to Necrothreat. (Also no more ghosts so yay).
1st Slate 557
A forumite barges into my office and states "Sir! The black bear in the temple has gone completely wild!"
Upon hearing that news..."S***."
It is chained up pretty well. Maybe the citizens will learn to avoid the fluffy murder machine.
It seems pretty docile actually. It isn't trying to eat any citizens or their pets yet. I will have to pay close attention to it if I wander about the temple.
About 1 week later, the side entrance has been finished and we should be able to freely enter and exit the fortress. I cannot find the gate lever for the life of me still, but a new side gate lever was installed.
17th Slate 557
The survival bunker is nearly finished. Once completed, should necrothreader or dragon appear, some dwarves will be able to continue surviving.
Migrants have also arrived today despite how dangerous this entire area is. Four new arrivals it seems! (One has already become part of the fortress and is heading inside).
Among them are two new military dwarves. An axemite by the name of Stodir and a spearman named Ateb. I quickly drafted them into the New Wave Warmen squad. We now total a 7 dwarf strong military.
3rd Felsite 557
It is about time we set an example to those politicians for attacking Necrothreat. I will be taking our captured Rand Paul flag waver and dropping him down the trash chute.
Well he isn't dead yet. Maybe he will suffer inside there until he eventually dies. (He died moments later).
10th Felsite 557
Vomit. Vomit everywhere. The moment they went outside again after a long time of hiding in our mountain, that's when it started. The side gate is completely covered in a trail of vomit now and they are trailing it everywhere. (Other than an average frat party, this part of the season is again uneventful for now).
A little over a week has passed and the citizens are quite overloaded with work recently. They have a lot of hauling from the outside to catch up on and a lot of friends to bury in their final resting place.
21st Felsite 557
Upon touring the grounds of the fortress, I believe I have located the control room. One of these levers is probably the one that lowers the main bridge...Though nearby one reads "INSTANT DEATH"...so I may not want to touch those levers.
Urvad has been acting strange exactly as the last dwarf had been. He even claimed the craftsman's workshop for his own.
(End of season)
So far everything has been pretty stale except the scare of that bear. Would be more exciting if the bear would start eating some dwarves xD.
Uhm I may have spoke too soon...
Anyways it is pretty late where I live and I will write the next two seasons tomorrow.
