Relicgrooves - 75 Early Spring by Tharis

Map Description:

Trying another one, with a more modest starting map. Also: No tower. Just elves and goblins for neighbors. Tried a different job apportionment, trying to fit jobs by skill instead of clustering them, which may end up in some awkwardness as both of our miners are multitaskers.

I'll try to make a story of POIs.

Point of Interest: Tun Tatooedbells

Can't imagine what drew them to this place. Had to doublecheck the map with Reg and Geshud, and they agree. Reg simply pointed to the topo map, pointed to the hillside we were sitting on, pointed to the brook to the east, and said "This is it. I mean, if your leadership would prefer, we could move the wagon a few feet south, but I am sure that this is it."

Geshud nodded with his friend, and complained that he didn't think he could handle much more of this hauling things around. He nodded to the mason and miner, another Reg. He'd done most of the work, and while he didn't look tired, seemed a bit miffed. He was also a silent type who preferred to work alone, so nobody wanted to bring him in, but his opinion was obvious. Already, he was going for his pick. I followed his lead.

Such a strange hillside, all sand and dirt, with only a small outcropping of flint. The trees are very tall, and strange here, but there aren't many. Hopefully there's coal in that chert somewhere, but who can say?

I fear we may have to slaughter the livestock sooner than I'd like. While the horse and yak may enjoy these exotic blue-greens, the grazing also seems very scant. Hopefully the sheep will live long enough to breed.

With these and other thoughts, cautiously, I approached Reg.

Looking good! What plans do you have for this one?

Submitted by: Tharis - 2014-08-15 to 75 Early Summer

I'm thinking of a big dome. And some towers. And some first person narratives.

I fooled you! I fooled you! I got pig iron, I got all pig iron!

Oh, you mean "pig iron" instead of "iron." Ha ha.
