I'm after him, so I WILL be able to do something about it! :D and the fact that we're growing Dimple Cups for some reason...

Well... It makes a decent export.

(Like freaking dye is going to get noticed by the merchants when you're mining silver and gold out of the caverns..)

The only dye dwarfs should use is MAGMA. And the only thing dwarfs should dye is ELVES.

Urist McBroker: Here Elvish friends, take this glowing red barrel of finest red dye aboard your wooden wagon! Our gift to show the respect we feel towards you.

Elfy Mcpansy: Thank you my friends, our fortunes blah blah blah blah blah....

(Shortly After Departure)

Elfy McOneArm: Well that wasn't so bad... Usually some catastrophe befalls us by now... Anyone else smell something strange?

1st of Granite

So, I've been appointed as head of this little fort and-

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

oh dear, do we have work to do.
First off, there's only one damn miner in the entire fortress, and secondly NO BOOZE! :'(
I found the problem. We're growing Dimple Cups and Quarry bushes in the farms, neither of which can be brewed.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I drafted one peasant into the army, and made the other a much needed miner.

Hmm, everything else appears to be-

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

What.
I swear I will use the dwarf who thought THIS was a good idea as FERTILIZER!
I have ordered the masons to build a wall around the exposed cavern. And if anything dangerous is in that water, I'm getting rid of the well, too.

3rd of Granite

Damn it, the caverns are too tall, and walling them off is not worth it. I'm sealing the level via floor-hatch until gold or silver is needed. Also, I've begun expanding the metalworks, as roughly 1/5 of the fortress consists of metalworkers. Additional mason's workshops are being constructed for the same reason.

More will come tomorrow, I'm kinda swamped with schoolwork today.

Edit: Added spoiler tags to pics. Update arriving posthaste.

I got finished a little early so small update.

17th of Granite

I've had fuel production increased (in that all but one smelter now refines either coal or lignite), and begun a...project of sorts...
Also, I don't know what Branded is doing with that shield, but it can't be sanitary.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
(sorry, I couldn't resist).

26th of Granite

I've begun construction of a small well to replace the one in the caverns.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The picture shows the cistern, the well will be safely up one floor.

3rd of Slate

I've begun digging out some more housing.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

More tomorrow. Am tired.

Edit: Oh, right, and I've dorfed the new miner "!!Urist!!" for ya, Scaraban.

Ughhh, a glitch ate my update, so footnotes until the next update.

Migrant wave brought the fortress to 71 dwarves, and drafting increased our military to 9 dwarfs strong.

A weaponsmith is possessed, and creates Ticksadmired, The Brave Sorcerors, the steel short sword.

!!Urist!! gave birth to a boy.

and then the ELVES arrived with their caravan.

I will post RESULTS either tomorrow or later this evening.

(The secret project is also going along smoothly...)
