Goldparch - 1056 Early Spring by Yojimbo

Map Description:

1055 was a year of firsts. Our first trade ship, ambush, siege, baby kidnapping, combat casualty and murder. The Count's wife went stark raving mad after we failed to explain properly why we couldnt make any trifle pewter anythings after which she promptly broke several armor stands then beat her husband and child to death with the left over pieces. Needless to say the fortress was quite upset, those were some very nice armor stands and will be missed.

Point of Interest: Northern Road

( 1056 → 1100 )

The Northern Road has been started. Made of marble blocks hopefully it will give a good first impression to any travelers. - Yojimbo

Goldparch was founded on the mandate for a port in the region to handle a major trade route through the area. This will include a light house, port facilities, warehouses, roads leading North and East and a garrison to defend all of it.

Goldparch had a very good first year. Housing and initial production of food stuffs and building material has already gotten underway. 11 immigrants have already joined the work force and have dove right into the projects at hand. The only down spot was that the first caravan wagons coming from the North were unable to make it.

It would be very cool if you could build boats (wagons) in DF and send expeditions off. It could be an alternative to "abandonning a fort" ... you could go off and start a new outpost somewhere else.

Good work with your fort sofar.

Awesome. This is the first, "port-fort" i've seen.

Well themed, love the great map room.

Wonderful fortress! I love all the non-functional elements, particularly the docks, map room, and lighthouse. The golden roof is a great touch.
Definately gives me the feeling that I am looking at a port city.

You have inspired me to make my own port fort Yojimbo. Hopefully I will be releasing it soon.

the HMS DwarfHammer is incredible! I'm very impressed with the design, it looks like a real ship!

still looking good. I wasn't expecting the HMS DwarHammer and now the idea of a submarine pen is in mind.

Dwarves sailing the high seas?! This is madness!

This is one of the most unique and awesome forts I've ever seen. Good job!

From now on, every fort i make that reaches at least 30 inhabitants shall have a McUrist's Pub 'n Disco.
