Workedglove - 139 Early Spring by Tharis

Map Description:

So, I lost keybanners to a crash-inducing bug. So, with that, I downloaded the new version, and after far too many world gens, I landed something that, while not quite as perfect for my tastes, is workable.

Ridiculous number of Z-levels, magma, some decent ores (I see a lot of bronze in my future.) I'm less keen on having the volcano at the highest point, and not having a handy hillock to hollow out. Still, the plateau we started on has potential.

The fact that goblins can climb and jump, though, is making me nervous. I'll have to do something more creative than merely shaving off a hillside to establish security. Hmm...

Let's see where this goes. Nothing has moved yet.

Should add that I honestly can't remember whether or not there's an aquifer. Guess we'll find out eventually, though really there's enough real estate above ground that it may be a while before I explore that far.

I don't see an aquifer but as a time sink. It's so easy to go through once you've done it once properly. And with magma. I even like it that way. I hate sand hollows.

I think I'd rather have an aquifer for a water source. My vague recollection is there's one that covers part of the map, but I was going through a lot of maps before I picked this one.

What hit the fortress?

A Werecamel?

Submitted by: Tharis - 2014-08-15 to 140 Mid Summer

The werecamel hit first, scared the expedition leader into the zombie camp, which roused the zombies into a swift invasion.

The zombies had been loitering on the edge of the map for the better part of a year, along with a human squad.

There, just added a POI to show where he died.

The zombies were the killers. The werecamel just drove our expedition leader into them.
