Burnkegs - 136 Early Spring by Salmeuk

Map Description:

End of the first year! This is a serene biome, with an apparently high density of kangaroos. Things won't be serene for long, however, since I settled nearby one of the largest gobbo populations in the world.

Currently sitting at 13 dwarves, though I expect plenty more in the next wave of migrants. I need to start soldier training.

I'm experimenting with major terraforming here, and hope to build some nice glass domes over these limestone circles. I also have a few smaller circles planned, around some yet-to-be-grown peach trees.

Quite a bit has been done for just one year.

At one point, a giant olm attacked via the first cavern. It's meager bites failed to do much of anything, and after a few lame engagements it ran all the way to the surface and escaped off the map. I like to think that it's still scurrying about ineffectively, harassing the local population of kangaroos.

Point of Interest: Depot

Eventually the bridge will become the only point of access to the fortress. For now, I've added a little doorway on the right so I can bring in wood and whatnot. - Salmeuk

Domes! I like the farm design, it's pretty and symmetrical. And having a natural circle of limestone is a nice touch. Good luck with the goblins. My experience was that producing glass in bulk was a pain, but the results can look nice.
