It started raining today. The magma pipe is open to the sky but hopefully the dwarves will not grumble too much about it.
Elves! What the hell are they doing here?
Turns out the elves wanted to trade with us. I still don’t trust them. Sneaky bastards, that’s what they are, all of them.
The elves brought a ton of worthless wood and cloth. Why did they think that dwarves would be interested in that? The only useful goods they brought were five sun berries, which I bought for a couple of shiny beads. I think I got the better deal. Elves are so easily distracted by shiny things…
A goblin pedophile came to hand out candy to the children, but our wrestlers spotted it and gave it a good beating. Here you can see the goblin flying through the air.
9th Slate, Mid-Spring
Another goblin came strolling today, but suffered the same fate as the first one. Maybe an even worse fate, actually – I took a look at the corpse when the wrestlers were done with it, and I had a hard time finding a body part that wasn’t broken.
The hull of the Magmadepth is finished! What remains now are some of the doors, the roof, the furniture, the controls and the storage room. But the hard part is finished, and no one died despite the hazardous working conditions.
Yet another goblin, yet another horrible death. They just don’t get it, do they?
We will make an overground farm to plant the seeds we got from the sun berries. This can let us produce sunshine booze!
Ah, fresh blood for the fortress.
As the new citizens got themselves registered, I saw that we have received 1 axedwarf, 2 clothiers, 1 pump operator, 1 siege engineer, 1 engineer, 1 weaver, 1 lye maker,1 furnace operator, 1 leatherworker, 1 thresher, 1 gem setter, 1 butcher, 1 tanner, 1 animal caretaker, 5 peasants, and 1 child. Mostly crap, but a few gems in there. With the population so large, Alåth Gídthurzuntir has been made mayor (under my supervision, of course), and the Fortress Guard has been created under the new Axedwarf Fikod Tileshmonom.
15th Felsite, Late Spring
The carving of grand rooms for the nobles is underway. They want a lot of furniture. Alåth probably deserves it, after all she did for the Magmadepth, but I can’t see what Fikod has done.
Mayor Alåth mandated the construction of three iron items today. This would have been easy IF THERE WERE ANY IRON HERE. Thank Armok for the iron daggers that the goblin pedos dropped.
3rd Hematite, Early Summer
Another possession! And this time it is a peasant. I wonder what she will do.
Later the same day: Degël ran into a craftdwarf’s workshop and kicked out Led who was working there. Then she stole a plank from a nearby carpenter’s workshop and started carving it furiously.
The Magmadepth is finished! Our hauldwarves are loading up the storage room with food and booze, and then we can set off… as soon as we get any volunteers for the crew. Strangely, no one has signed up yet.
Note to future rulers: The YELLOW lever pulls up the drawbridge. The RED lever releases the ship. Don’t pull the red lever until it’s the real deal.
With this project finished, I consider my work here done. I leave it to next overseer to continue the saga of Razorcaught.
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.
