I tend to train the entire adult population for three months out of a year, on rotation.  This allows me to have 150 slightly competent meatshields when the time comes for a fight.  Armor tends to be rare though in those cases.
There's a reason why my metal industry is always absurd in my forts. About 1/3rd at minimum is enlisted into the army, with about 10 or more (depends on how lucky I am with getting the smiths) metal workers on armor and weapon making duty on 8 forges while 12-15 chumps of any skill puke up bars on about one furnace per chump. Anything not masterwork gets melted down, and I always forge in rotation of armor, so I tend to build full suits at a time. Its always regular iron at best, but working in tandem with the pig tail industry I tend to start on VERY early (I end up planting them first, alongside plump helmets), I end up having a solid set of armor for everyone in my army within the year, possibly two years if I have less than adequate forge workers.

This ends up being my end game focus though, so until then, I tend to make enough leather armor to last until my metal production rivals the industrial revolution. In the odd chance I run out of metal or I struggle to find anything better, I'll piss off the humans and abuse cage traps

Jee wilikers, I think Highmax is near invulnerable, must have been dunked in the river styx like achilles was.
Just make sure he wears a boot.

I have found over three dozen forts, only three forts with iron.  It simply doesn't happen with me.

Generally I don't touch them, besides setting the world to small/medium.  Sometimes I crank up the materials, but not all that much.

Don't set mineral frequency to the max. Iirc it makes it hard to find iron.

Actually it was the complete opposite.  I found iron.  Lots of it.  There just wasn't a grain of flux anywhere.

You realise you can search the map for sites with flux using the search feature?

Marble counts as flux but doesn't show up on the search thing. Marble tends to be everywhere too...

I love getting marble. Pretty colour, good flux, good value.

I tend to have stockpiles dedicated to just marble if I get enough of the stuff. I see why Greece and Rome loved it so much :P

I wouldn't make the claim in certain terms without checking.  Not a single trade caravan had any of the flux materials as they show up  in the wiki.  It was a good spot too, ignoring the lag problems of falling water.

We're a day over the current turn limit, including your story post bonus. How fares the fortress, Flame of Necrothreat?

SAVE: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=13508

So, let's see, what have I accomplished in these eight months?
 - Cleaned up the entire fortress
 - Melted a shitload of enemy equipment
 - Doubled the number of bedrooms in the fort
 - Only lost like 3 forumites, none named
 - Population increased
 - Entire military armored in steel and cured of cave adaption
 - Booze produced

Well folks, that's as close to a win as they come in Necrothreat. Red Hammer happily hands off the overseership to the next forumite.

Flame, did you  have any closing pieces?  It's just a little too open on my end for crafting a transition story.

Basically, Red Hammer did what she set out to do, which was improve the fort. She doesn't have a reason to be in power any more.
