Kobold thieves have been sighted in the area apparently wanting to steal children. I've activated a crack squad of dwarf recruits, armed them with crossbows and stationed them at the entrance. I've also armed my fishermen with crossbows since they tend to run into these buggers on their travels.
I have a crafterdwarf churning out stonecrafts non-stop (This is the way to buy stuff from the traders folks) and I'm still waiting for my puppies to grow up so I can turn them into sleek killing dog missiles.
I think something must have died in dining room number 2 since it's currently filled with a purple miasma cloud. Not good if you need to eat your lunch.
