Alright so I'm at page 47 and wanted to post this before I finished, so apologies if someone has done so between now and then. Also, judging by how much DF playing goes on here, I can't believe I'm the first to use this little tool here.

These are taken during the barbarous invasion. I spent a couple minutes looking for Holistic and the others tomb before I remembered they weren't built yet. Also this means the tower isn't in (and any other changes in the past umpteen pages).

Also, I have never played this game, I only just started because of this thread. A great read.

This is the entrance of course. It doesn't show the trade depot as a room.

Here is a shot of the river/caldera/glacier, those starburst-y waterways or brooks or whatever were what I was going for.

I never noticed, but I guess an entrance was dug over here(?)

Statues in the gatehouse at the entrance, I guess.

Side entrance to the gatehouse, also the moat.

The golden hallway.

Anyway, it's pretty neat wandering around the fort, there's plenty more to show.

I found it while browsing this on this page. Here is the viewer page itself.

"Look, just because it came to you in a dream doesn't mean you're a pr-"

"IT'S GONNA HAPPEN! ... Okay? It's gonna."

"... I think we should lay off the cigars, Screaming Idiot."

"You're not smoking them. Who's 'we'? 'We' is me and you are he and we are all to-"

"I'm leaving before I catch the mole fever."


Entry - ???
It's good to be alive, I think.

Strange dreams and nightmares. I do not think I will be having cigars again soon.


Have we had a premonition? Was some great disaster averted? Or was it a shared vision of the future... or a torment concocted by the demons of the deep? I fear to question too closely.

Found a drawing of an engraving in my journal. It shows Icedrake dead.

I don't care what anyone says, IT WAS REAL


I must work diligently to prepare for the coming slaughter.
