Deinol, 4th of Moonstone, 301
Fall was a very busy time. I had our mechanic install a lever operated floodgate at the entrance to the aqueduct. There wasn’t time to place on the reservoir side. I’ll have him work on that once the initial flood subsides.
A caravan of fellow dwarves arrived. We don’t have a wide selection of goods yet, but they were willing to accept a few mechanisms in exchange for some extra food. We came to an agreemant about next time. We’ll work on improving production of the following goods:
As the caravan left our first batch of immigrants arrived. 8 adults and 2 children. They of course didn’t bring any food with them, so it’ll be a scarce winter. At least we have enough extra hands to help clean the place up a bit.
With the new arrivals I’ve started work on expanding the living quarters once again. Do children need beds? I’m a miner, not a parent. We’ll figure something out. At least we can get more workshops operational.
The farming plot is ready to go. Once the floodwaters recede a little, we’ll poke a hole and install a new floodgate. We should be ready to plant plump helmets and other crops in the spring.
It’ll be a rough winter ahead but after this it should get easier.
