    Yeah, use channeling. If you make the channel in the right order you can make a big enough gap between the hole and the floor above the channel that you can not have your room flood, but flood the one below it.
    If that's too hard, just sacrifice a fish cleaner.

    I know this is late but I'd just like to apologize for my turn. I didn't really do a whole much other than "clean up" the fort's population. I got a little caught up in the narrative that I was making, and didn't really have a goal set other than MURDER CHILDREN, though that should make things run a little bit faster so I guess it's not a wasted turn by any means

    Before:


    After:


    I didn't make it very clear in my reports what I actually did do so I,ll rattle a few things off: I reorganized labors, nicknamed all of the dwarfs, and named soldiers after former overseers, made armor and expanded the military, expanded our mechanism industry, created a mass execution chamber, and smoothed a bunch of stuff.

    Also something I thought was hilarious but didn't share: I named all of the dwarfs at the beginning (fuck children) including myself, who I named after the mayor. As it turned out, I discovered half way through the turn that "I" was a vampire. I thought this was hilarious because the vampire was currently only targeting children, and at that point in the narrative I established myself as a total child hater. Another funny thing, I tried to kill the vampire by drowning, as I documented but I remembered too late that vampires cannot drown. I nearly lost my bookkeeper trying that.

    Everything in my turn was true, except for the backstory of DeathDoom where he killed the real overseer, I made that up; but it sounded cool so eh.

    I'm writing on a phone so sorry if that this long winded, I literally cant see what I'm typing.

    Notes for next overseer:
    - Finish off DeathDoom, he's marked as death row on his profession so he shouldn't be hard to spot.
    - There are two forgotten beasts in the caverns. Try not to get everyone killed.
    - The room with all the spears in it on level -4 or so is the "daycare" There are probably still bodies in there, so make sure that they get buried.
    - If you kill all the nobles, spare Worm. He's just a bookkeeper!
    - Don't forget that temperature is still turned off (I think)

    (Amid the tattered blueprints and incomprehensible forms, a small book can be seen, the cover reads: 'Journal of Vābok 'Pokey' Tobulgatin')

    4th Granite, 258

    After the recent... impeachment of our previous mayor, following what can best be described as late birth control, we decided to draw straws over who the task of administrator of this lovely little place would fall too.

    I drew the short straw.

    Fuck.

    8th Granite, 258

    Wandered into the stockpiles today, noticed we were awfully low on booze.
    Had a fair few more produced.

    In order to keep the miners busy and away from the dwarves without great big pickaxes, I've set them to construct something.

    (A rough sketch of something lies on the page)


    What it shall be used to power... we'll see when the time comes.

    13th Granite 258



    Recently received reports of a bizarre feathered, fire-breathing caterpillar.
    Considering what other horrors have clawed their way from the caverns, I'm sending the militia after the beast.

    Upon hearing the call, the soldier known as 'dogchow' went berserk.



    While armed.

    In the barracks.

    He was put down fairly quickly, before he could harm anyone.



    Tis' a shame a brave militia dwarf was lost to madness, but such is life.

    They slew the creature, but several burns due to the fire-breathey-ness did arise, otherwise, no incident.

    21st Granite

    SHUT THE FUCK UP SNEEZY NO-ONE CARES



    27th Granite

    I've had it with these ghosts.

    I'm having some memorials to them created, seeing as no-one wants to entomb them or find their fucking bodies.

    I was also informed today, that as our interim mayor, I must make mandates.



    Decided to ban exporting quivers, because we don't export quivers.

    2nd Slate

    Work on the Device continues slowly, due to the miners' pre-occupation with a million other jobs in this sprawling madhouse.

    On the upside, Sneezy finally shut up.

    The ghosts are also complete tossers, knocking over furniture.

    12th Slate

    Decided to seal the gap in our defenses.

    after this, anything that wants to get in will have to go across one of the bridges, or fly.

    Or swim.

    Or jump across.

    Probably not completely secure, then.
    But it's a start.

    Decided to pin all the cold cases on that wretched vampire.
    Because he probably did them.

    Sneezy broke a bridge and punched a bunch of people.
    Might see if I can stick a murder on him.

    23rd Slate


    Oops.

    nothing that a bit of drainage can't fix.

    The drink problem still hasn't been addressed.
    Mainly due to the fact that we have a single brewer available at any given time.
    Made our best brewers dedicated to brewing only.
    With any luck, that should address the matter.

    Filled in a hole leading to the caverns, should prevent more troglodyte incursions.

    4th Felsite

    One of the children woke up screaming something incomprehensible in someone else's voice before rushing off to a workshop.




    on a side note, I've had to wall off the smelters to prevent the magma cooling.



    And the elven caravan has arrived.


    21st Felsite

    The little crazy tit has finally started working on... something, i guess.

    Yet more ghosts have risen.

    Miners still slacking on Device.

    Sneezy Still irritating.

    26th Felsite




    How do you mortally wound a ghost?

    The miners have finally finished excavating the Device.
    Now to fill & fit it.
    Oh, and the broker's still asleep, despite the caravan.

    Edited:

    And that's it for spring, will do summer and whatnot tomorrow.

    Hematite

    In order to save on journal space, I will create new entries monthly, as opposed to whenever.

    Despite his being a murderous vampire and still imprisoned, Deathdoom was voted mayor again.

    As the Device approaches completion, thoughts as to a use swim throughout my mind.
    Most of them involving magma.

    I think I have an idea.




    Using a minecart to draw magma from the pipe near the underground fort, bringing it to the cistern.

    Malachite

    Nothing much happened this month.
    Plans moving towards completion, miners slacking, Sneezy not shutting up.

    Galena

    The Device is finished.

    It shall power the Automated Repeating Magma Obtaining Kart system.

    Producing 2600 power, it should be more than enough to power the rails.

    My plan to be rid of that loudmouth once and for all is nearing completion.

    Have fun when a building destroyer gets into that doom machine. I had that happen to a magma pump fail-safe once. It was a pretty bad idea to have the fail-safe be dependent on power, in hindsight. I think the flaming, melting mass of dwarves that died though it was a bad idea too.

    I'll update later tonight, just going to eat dinner and such first.

    Edited:

    nope, no dwarves called drugunit.

    Edited:

    Limestone
    Work progresses steadily for the main cistern for the A.R.M.O.K system.
    Soon, the upper levels of the fortress will be filled with able to use a large supply of magma.
    This should speed up the metal industry significantly.
    And get rid of certain... elements within the fortress.

    Which reminds me, I haven't heard anything from that loudmouthed goon for some time.



    ...


    Shit.

    The fortress is swarming with dogs.
    At least we have food for all time.

    Another has been acting strange recently:



    Here's hoping something good comes out of it and nothing gets lopped off.

    Grabbing a single rough purple spinel, he started working.





    Our militia should bathe more often.




    How wonderful.

    Edited:

    All i'm going to be able to do tonight, sorry.

    Will do the rest tomorrow.
