One problem is that even though I've dug out some new bedroom areas, they are still cluttered with stone. I've hollowed out two otherwise useless areas on the path into the mountain. One is holding stone, and the other useful garbage. Even with the extra stone storage, I don't have room to store all my rock. I'm going to have to work on that.
I've got quite a bit of ore, but I'm low on charcoal to do anything with it. I'll have to expand my tree cutting and charcoal burning. One good thing that happened is that I've got an artifact leather shield. I'm sure that will be useful if I can get someone to wear it. I did have one dwarf die of melancholy because I didn't have any turtle shell when he wanted to make an artifact. I've traded for some, so hopefully I won't have to start fishing. I've got more food than I really need from farming already.
