It is really, really easy to flood this place with magma fwiw.

First things first, letís get these guys out of that hole.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
And get ourselves some more storage space.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
The Lesser Ardentdikes entrance is really quite good, but a little extra preparation never hurt anyone, especially for when we move back into Greater Ardentdikes (and really, what else can we do while weíre waiting for The Cleansing to be complete?
Given that we have two bonecrafters and a heck of a lot of bones outside in various places, Iím going to start with the bone crafts.  Itíll give us something to trade that I know we have.  Itís difficult to tell what things are in Greater Ardentdikes and which are in Lesser.
Although I just noticed we have an amazing number of things spilled around the Depot itself, must never have cleaned up after the elvesÖ

16 Obsidian
One of the new migrants has been possessed!
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Given the state of things, I hope we can accommodate himÖ

17 Obsidian
Oh no.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Youíd think a fortress that was obviously full of red hot magma would be of no interest to the gobbos.  Youíd think wrong.  Iíve pulled everyone inside, weíll have to wait this out.  We certainly donít have the manpower to fend off a siege at this point.  The trolls immediately began to smash everything outside.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
As well as a poor planter that had been stuck outside.  Meanwhile, we hunker down and do what we can.  For some reason our possessed peasant canít figure out what workshop he wants, diethering between our multiple craftshops.

23 Obsidian
There, he finally chose one.  Sadly, he needs raw green glassÖand thatís not likely to happen.  Iíve taken the liberty of locking him in.    Also think that we may have to set up a way to flood at least part of the outdoors with magma, if the goblins are going to be coming by like thisÖ

13 Granite.
The siege has made me aware that our dining area can get ratherÖcrowded.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Iíve commissioned a new dining hall.  It looks like our stay in Lesser Ardentdikes will be longer than we would like.

9 Slate
About three-quarters of the siege has left.  That one-quarter that remains thoughÖ
On another note, nobody will carry bone crafts to the stockpile!  Or gems!  I donít know why this is!

OOC: Seriously, I canít get finished goods stockpiles or gem stockpiles to work and I have no idea why.  Theyíll take dump orders there and itís not forbiddenÖ

9 Felsite.
Sending our three steel-clad militiamen out to clear off three goblins turned out to be a horrible mistake.

I haven't had any luck getting the gem/custom finished goods stockpiles I laid out in .13 to work either. I assumed it was just dwarven laziness, but it sounds like it might be a shiny new bug.

I think that all of the stockpiles in greater ardentdike might still be active, even though they are awash with magma. If so, it might be wise to deactivate some of them. I created an emergeny field hospital just outside of the old one that might need deleting.

From the Journal of Urist McDuck, Seer of Ardentdikes:

I warned her not to go, for I foresaw a great tragedy.

During the evacuation of Greater Ardentdikes, Feb Adilluk was invaluable, providing the panicking dwarves with a sense of security as they fled their homes (though, she once confessed to me, she was at best a novice with an axe). She was as sad and terrified as everyone else, but she stepped up to the role of militia commander and put on a brave face for the other dwarves. She was shy and awkward, but we all loved her.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

When it became clear that three goblins remained after their main army had left, she wanted to lead her squad out to drive them off. I told her that if she did, they would almost certainly be slain. None of our soldiers, herself included, had ever wielded an axe in anger -- even without my Vision, I would have worried about how they would fare against battle-hardened goblins from the east.

"Will we at least drive the goblins off?" she asked me.
I started to reply: "You'll all--"
"As long as the goblins think they can camp out there with impunity, we'll never make it back to Greater Ardentdikes. Will we drive off the goblins?" she demanded.
"I don't know," I admitted.
"Then we'll chance it," she said, strapping on her helm. "It'd be nice if some of us actually got to go home someday." And with that, she left.

Alas, my Vision proved true.

Farewell, brave daughter of Ardentdikes, and we thank you.

Seth will save us.  They flooded the beautiful fortress with magma.  It was a place fit for a king, now it is a place fit for fire imps.

Done.

Are we moving to .15 ?? I miss invaders :'(

Heck, I'm still using .12.  And Toady released .16, so it's fine if we upgrade to that.  (I didn't upgrade to .13 due to bugs, then .14, .15, and .16 came out so quickly...)

Also, sorry this is taking so long.  Work + framerate is kicking my butt.  Here's update 2 of 3.


With the siege over, I took care of some businessÖ
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Sadly, most of our stocks of precious metals are still in Greater Ardentdikes.  When the magma subsides, Feb shall have a real tomb.
Apparently we drove the goblins off just in time for the Elves to stop byÖ
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Unfortunately, we lost our depot to the siege.  Who knows if weíll get it up in time for them.

26 Felsite
Well, we threw together a depot, but we didnít have the manpower to move all those unbinned bits of bone, what with people cleaning up after the siegeÖ
So I just took a bunch of drink and berries from the elves.  Come on, what do you expect us to trade in our condition?  Besides, it gets them out of our beards.

1 Hemetite.
Summer, and itís still raining.  Iíve spoken with our resident seer, and heís told me that the magma is simply not reaching the point of greatest concern.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
I believe weíll have to route some magma in there directly before we can contemplate draining Ardentdikes.  Iím going to have to muck about with the dike plumbing, sadly, but it can always be fixed in the future.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

7 Hemetite
Dariush seems to have some inspiration.  Let us hope he fares better than the last oneÖ
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

17 Hemetite
I feel much safer for some reasonÖ
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Dariush seems to need cloth.  Iíll see what I can do for him, but Iím putting a door on his workshop as a precautionary measure.

24 Malachite.
Sadly, we did not have what Dariush needed, and seems to have fallen into a depression
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Life goes on as usual for Ardentdikes.
The same day, 11 stout dwarves have decided to brave the dangers of Ardentdikes and join us.

Who knows?  They may even survive to see Greater Ardentdikes reclaimed.

27 Malachite
Weíve got a fisherman, a carpenter, another bonecrafter, a craftsman, and a smattering of useless skills.  And a siege operator.  I just donít know why some people come here.

4 Galena
I just realized that since we havenít sorted out the paperwork from Greater Ardentdikes, most of the jobs that our manager assigns end up going, via, the normal sorting process, to workshops that nobody staffs.
Whoops.
Iíve told TauQuebb to visit the shops himself to make sure they got the instructions.  He grumbled, but thereís nothing I can do about it.  Also, the stockpile designations finally went through and people started hauling!  Itís amazing what will only be done after you produce the proper paperwork.

OOC: I have no idea why the stockpiles started working.  Oh well.  Also, now that weíve flooded the whole place with magma, but I did some tests with letting dwarves in it and they all got instantly reinfected somehow.  I canít find the source, so Iím using DFClean at this point.  Also, the amount of blood is hideous after that siege.  If the person after me wants to upgrade to .16 and turn off blood spatter tracking that might be a good idea.

14 Galena
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
The humans have arrived!  Iíve sent what bins we have full of junk to the depot so we can get some food from them.  With the extra mouths, our stores are looking a bit thin.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

17 Galena
Of course.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

23 Galena
Now that Rimtarís bestirred himself, heís purchased all the food and drink the human caravan had to offer.  Itís really too bad their armor is too big for us, given how much of it they had with them.
11 Limestone
A moment of silence for yet another unavoidable death.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

19 Limestone.
I didnít realize how many unburied dead we had.  Sixteen coffins in and I still havenít gotten to Feb. I suppose Iíll just have to keep making them.

21 Limestone.
Now the food stockpile papers seem to have gotten lost.  This entire bureaucracy is a horrible mess.
OOC:  Yep, food stockpiles now not working.  Go figure.
5 Sandstone
Greater Ardentdikes is almost completely drained of magma!  Weíve decided to have a party.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Once the fires die down, we might start moving back in.

16 Sandstone
This could be bad.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

18 Sandstone.
Whew.  Seer McDuck only needed two pieces of tetrahedrite.  I imagine this will be an interesting creation.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

22 Sandstone
Well, itís certainly an elaborate bed.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

2 Timber
9 more hardy souls have braved the danger of ardentdikes!
That, or they really like the smell of freshly magma-scoured stone.  I know I do.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

4 Timber
Finally!
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

13 Timber
Ahh, the caravan from home.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

OOC: I think the stockpile funkiness is due to Greater Ardentdikes objects being tasked to fill the stockpiles, but of course they canít be moved thereÖ
Iíve begun a few cautious, very restricted forays into Greater Ardentdikes.  The magma leak still needs to be plugged, Iíd all but forgotten about that, but it otherwise looks clean.  Other than the burning coal.

14 Moonstone
Success!
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

4 Opal
I have the beginning of the goblin-grinder style entrance finished.  I got the idea from one of my contacts in the Mountainhomes.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
At the moment itís only connected to Lesser Ardentdikes, but when we reopen Greater ArdentdikesÖ

24 Opal
The general good mood due to incipient reopening of Greater Ardentdikes seems to have infected a certain peasant.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Weíll see how this one goes.

3 Obsidian
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Well, itís a nifty figurine, but alder?

1 Granite 1062
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
And here we are.  Iím ready to pass off the actual task of repopulating Greater Ardentdikes to someone else.  Itís going to take more than a year, I expect.

And Save
