Staffrare Desert Outpost Log
24th of Granite, 111.
Well, I think it's safe to call Staffrare more than an outpost now. A few years ago the area around the fortress became a boom town for masons and miners. The baron who moved in a couple years ago has given more stability to the area and calmed down the local peasantry. We need their labor.
I'm sure Commander Koganarzes won't be happy to receive another report delaying progress. It has been six years since we started work here, and we still don't have a complete wall along the border... or a completed southern annex to Fort Staffrare... or a completed aquaduct. It's difficult for me to balance the growing demands of the peasants while trying to secure the lands. Maybe I've gotten too soft from being out here.
Currently all energy is being focused on getting the aquduct operational even if we have to forgo the reservoir. I'd rather not though, the river has dried up a couple of times and I don't want to promise water to the local mines if we can't keep a constant supply.
On as side note, an Elven diplomat from Coco Rise has been showing up to complain about trees or some such. He seems to think that we've been clear cutting his forest just west of the wall. We have been a bit, but he makes it sounds like genocide. He demanded we stop and if it weren't for the military already being stretched thin around Staffrare I'd tell him to piss off. So we told him we wont cut down anymore trees. Then he had the gaul to ask for 137 trees to take with him. He was promptly shown the door and if I could have gotten away with it, an axe to go with it. Maybe in the future we can build a wooden wall engraved with images of us cutting down a forest. Just for them.
This Olivine and Phyllite plaza is the symbol of the city. A Crescent and star with two rays on either side. I thought it would look good in the middle of the future lake. - Dakira
