A reported is submitted to the Council:
The House Wizard Shyntdar of Helviiryn has reported the completion of a earthern ditch and rampart wall at the end of 12 weeks. Since the settlement has already some natural advantages in defence due to its location, Shyntdar has decided that we use those to our advantage. The hamlet is in a natural bend so our rear is covered thus a simple 3 sided wall will be an effective way to set our initial defences.
Shyntdar can excavate through DIG 6125 cubic feet of dirt sand mud a day [ area effect = 7 x5cube= 875 = duration = 7 rnds = 875x7= 6125 c3 per day] . Working a 6 day week he can DIG 36750 c3 of earth which will be enough to build the following wall:
KEY= o =water X =gate
The wall is 1200 feet in length, each section 400' long with two gateways at the aps of the wall joinings. An earthern ditch 15 foot deep by 20' wide with the earth piled on the inner side making a 15' high rampart makes up the total excavations and workings.
within 2 weeks of DIGGING, the dicth could be expanded further, made deeper and wider if necessary.
Main trenches and a resevoir, a sewage pond and sewer lines will have been completed by the end of 12 weeks of the spring. Until clay and stone are available these will be simple open air drains and lines and ponds. However, water will flow due to a simple diviersion cut at a high point in the river, bringing in enough flow constantly to flush the system into the drainage ponds. Over a 10 week period, 367500c3 of earth will be moved, dug, trenched etc to form the needed ponds, resevoirs, mains lines and sewers of the town.
The next project will be to eventually enclose the sewers allowing the roads to be paved and construct Aquaducts and Gravity water storage tanks.
At the reports of a band of Duergar approaching the settlement, I propose the following action be taken -
Firstly I will send out my best scout to determine if these Duergar are here to trade or to fight. My House Captain first observe them and if able, is to approach them and will pose as a simple traveller in order to infiltrate the approaching band to learn their intent.
He will report back immediately if he believes they are a threat.
I suggest we also ready our defences in any case as they will see that this settlement is not week and will make anyone thinking of aggression to us, to calculate the bill of blood that it will cost them to finish us.
Over the last 3 months House Helviiryn has made good progress. Our farms are doing well and our weavers are beginning to show profits for the labors.
However the critical factor will be increasing food production. We are sill not able to fully feed the population sustainably so more farms must be created.
