Five full years have passed, with the beginning of the sixth year marking my longest lasting fortress to date. Much was achieved this year, and the only deaths were those of a few dogs, and the goblins.
The walls between the towers are about half finished, and I must admit to being a little frustrated at how little was achieved this year. I still need to add the second layer to all but two of the lower wall segments as well as the tops of the same. I am having smooth roads put down inside the walls to prevent trees from growing and blocking access. The insides of the walls will probably serve as storage, but not until the outer wall is finished and I can guaranty a degree of security, to prevent theft.
I've also gotten a substantial amount of work done inside the fortress, including the digging of some experimental noble rooms, and the kings rooms, in case I last that long.
The latest immigrant wave brought me up to 75 dwarves, so I'm hoping to get my baron in the next wave. I have turned off the economy for the time being, as I don't really understand it yet, and would rather not screw myself over with something so simple. I also got a Dungeon Master in the last group, in addition to at least four immigrants with soap related skills. I have not drafted them yet, as I figure I'll need someone to join the royal guard once the baron shows up.
Here you can see the walkways for the walls, as well as the top floor of the gate house, and the upper tower access. Eventually I will build the towers higher, but the walls currently hold top priority. - timmeh
