OK, this is a slight variation of the "Summon the Caller" setup. Once again, I love the way you can move just a few elements of a setup with DF, and it becomes something ten times cooler.

I didn't like the way my little pit made everything center around it -- it dictated the size of every room, and I had to have one massive chamber to accommodate it. Too limiting. So I decided to divide the top floor into rooms, and then add an octagonal bedroom on the lower floor. MUCH more interesting layout. I moved two of the railings to the lower floor, to segment off a large study/presentation area, and I kept the other two guarding the only two exposed edges of the pit. Then I made the top floor a neat kind of "wraparound" setup -- the top of the stairs takes you to one small foyer with a narrow hallway that ends at the pit. Across the pit, you can see, but not access, a larger room. You can enter that room from the foyer. Then, from that room, you can enter another small study, one that you are immediately next to when you're at the narrow ledge of the pit, but you have to go all the way around to reach it. So lots of places are right next to you but inaccessible, or visible but not directly accessible, in this layout. I much prefer it to the prior version.

Thanks! Here are a few other shots, showing off different angles on this layout. I really love making balconies with the new railings!
