Twolancers - 226 Early Winter by ryo!

Map Description:

Well, it's time for another Twolancers map. I've begun digging out a large underground cathedral to give my miners and engravers some work, as well as produce some more stone for my above ground constructions. I've also started building a library to...well...I dunno. I deforested almost all of the map before I started to get more wood to build the 'bookshelves' (cabinets), but I barely got halfway - I'll need to cut more down soon.

Before I started digging out the cathedral, my dwarves hadn't made any artifacts for a while, probably because of the 'revealed subterranean tiles / 2308' limit. But soon after I began, the craftsdwarf's workshops were constantly churning out useless legendary crafts. Mostly from children.

Yes, that formatting probably was a waste of time. - ryo!

Liking the battlements, what is that road made out of leading east?

Submitted by: ryo! - 2008-09-02 to 215 Early Summer

Bauxite, with small microcline roads either side.

I want to see this Colosseum you're building.

Submitted by: Lord Dullard - 2008-09-03 to 216 Early Winter

A zombie dragon AND a zombie hydra..!? Upload that fight!

And nice map, a lot of neat ideas here.

I think your pyramid needs a gold top.

Also, yay Colosseum!

Submitted by: Dakira - 2008-09-20 to 221 Early Summer

Woo Gold capped pyramid!

I'd like to see what happens with that temple you're building. Are you going to keep the second floor curved at all?

Are the buildings at the ground z level, northeast corner of your fortress green houses?

Submitted by: pharoah - 2008-09-21 to 221 Early Summer

by the way i love your fortress!

Submitted by: ryo! - 2008-09-21 to 221 Early Summer

I'm not really going to change the temple at all (Apart from removing the three staircases at the sides).

And those (phyllite) bridges are basically greenhouses - I don't really need them there, but it makes it easier to access the doors to the northeast.

What I think you need is a giant underground construction. You already have loads of aboveground buildings and you are running out of stone, so why not dig out a gigantic pit or other elaborate structure to throw your goblins into. Or even better you could dig out an underground cathedral like this one: Ectosack

Use the format: [map=3036] for internal links, sorry about that.

...I'm new, so I might be mistaken, but do I see some sort of goblin prison on the surface??

Submitted by: ryo! - 2008-09-29 to 222 Mid Summer

Heh, it's actually the aftermath of a goblin ambush - though sieges always require me to increase the size of my refuse stockpile.

Loved the road :-) when was the fort founded?

Submitted by: ryo! - 2008-10-17 to 226 Early Winter

I can't actually remember, but fortunately my dwarves can - according to the engravings in the fort, Twolancers was founded in the early spring of 212.
