Linela continued to play each day to keep spirits high. The daughter of a sembian merchant, she was accustomed to a life of ease when she came to the coast. She was thrust into a world of doing for herself, and she prided herself on the fact that she adapted. Still, as she watched everyone else toiling, she began to feel like she was not contributing enough. She wandered over to the site and tried to hammer a few nails or carry materials.

She had never seen herself as strong. She was tenacious and could dance for hours, but she was not overtly powerful. Even so, to her surprise her strength just seemed to leave her suddenly not long into trying to help. By now her dizzy spells were known, and she was shooed away to rest. Disappointed she busied herself again with song and story telling.

Finally the new smithy was erected in Ulgoth's beard. Through the combined efforts of the owner's of the Last Anchor, and various friends the land was cleared, the materials were bought and an old house was hollowed out an re-purposed. The local blacksmith was so thrilled by his work space, and had so much work backed up, that he hired an apprentice.

Image
Late in the evening Lannia and Derik stopped by to deliver some cupcakes in celebration of the opening of the smithy, and to make a list of materials that the smith needed to better equip the local militia. They set off afterwards seeking better armor, boots, shields and weapons to bring back to the smithy to be customized for the militia. Silver was high on the list. The Ranlosses clearly meant to see to the growth and the protection of their home.

Last night Derik Ranloss, one of the proprietors of the Anchor, arrived back at the inn and pub with several hundred pounds of fish, including halibut, bass, flounder, and a number of other types.

Fresh fish on the menu again for the next few days!

A young boy walked into The Last Anchor looking for the proprietors of the establishment. His shoulders were held tight up as he looked out into the room like a bundle of nerves, avoiding eyecontact with John at all cost. He waited patiently for the Ranlosses to appear, refusing to hand the letter over to the man behind the bar. Once they did, he greeted them ever so politely before looking through a large stack of envelopes on his bag, taking his time at is as well...
Image
"This letter came a long ways from, for the two Ranlosses.." He looked up. "..you. Well you both. You're the Ranlosses, right..?" His eyes shot from Derik to Lannia, as he held the letter out toward them to hand it over. When they took the letters his hand disappeared into his right pocket. The boy stepped a few steps back, as though gathering courage.... He suddenly pelted Derik with a handful of pebbles in fast movement and skittered out of there like his life depended on it!

Derik would take the letter, then blink as he is pelted, watching the child disappear from the Anchor.

Lannia only snickered as she dove out of the way of any misdirected pebbles or any bouncing off her husband and took a look at the letter.

Derik was seen passing along through the farm by the beach, inspecting the ground prepared for the barn raising, making sure everything was still in order.

The workers hired by Barbryn Glori are hard at work constructing the new barn. It is said farmer Tom, one of the village elders and spokesman for the farmers, plans to buy another cow to celebrate the new structure.

In other news, repairs and new boats are in the works for the fishermen, thanks to Aidan's hard work. Barnacle Bob is overseeing the progress.

Derik was seen looking over the new barn that has just been raised in town.

Image

He smiled, conversed with Tom for a moment, then headed off to the ferry.

*After the building of the Barn was complete, Barbryn Glori would send a letter to the Last Anchor with the balance of the bill which contained the 75,000 gold cost minus the personal Labor the members of the Anchor and friends contributed, which was estimated to be nearly a third! -25,000 = Total cost upon completion 50,000 gp to be given to a representative of the Merchant League as paid in Full for the jobs.*

*Derik would pay the 50,000 happily as well as 5000 extra for appreciation to the architect for her work and bonus for her workers, and tip the messenger 100.*

For the last week to 10-day, Derik has been seen in the Anchor's main room fairly sparsely. He seems to be spending a fair amount of time downstairs in the office or out on expeditions of some sort.

When he is seen, those that know him can easily tell he's a bit more distant than usual, possibly even a little depressed.

At meeting took place at the Anchor today with Elder Mergus to discuss the recent building of the Smithy and Barn, many other subjects were discussed to see what further improvements could be done.

Derik and Lannia brought up perhaps bringing in tutors from Candlekeep to help with formal education for those that wished it. Mergus promised to take this to the other elders, though a location for these classes might be an issue.

Derik and Lylan also offered to train the local militia, small as it is, in better fighting techniques. A separate meeting will need to be held with the Guard Captain. Derik has stockpiled a fair amount of gear from "donations" collected from areas like the Serpent Hills and Cloudpeaks that he noted he was willing to donate to the militia for short term, while Niy will be looking into possibly contact the Dwarves residing in the Trollclaws to bring in raw materials for the smithy. His supply was almost completely used up making new tools for the surrounding farmlands for their harvest season.

Another discussion was had about possibly hosting a town-wide Harvest Festival, which could just be fun.

On a more somber note, discussions were also had regarding the cultists and pirates that often plague the small town. However, that's a subject that will have to be explore far more carefully and slowly than just throwing a party... It could have serious ramifications for the whole town.

A proposition of possibly finding or providing temporary physical help for the local farmers for Harvest became a real possibility.

Even finding a way to perhaps provide the town a golem for protection was discussed!

After the meeting, Lannia made a huge dinner for those that remained. She and Derik invited everyone down to the beach and held and impromptu celebration for their one-year anniversary. Dancing, talking, and general merriment was had by all!

* With the donations of Armors and Weapons from Derrick and silver from Lannia, the Blacksmith and his Apprentice get to work on new and heartier Masterwork Armor and Weapons for the Militia Captain and his three guards of the little Hamlet of Ulgoth's Beard.

With all the improvements and changes of Ulgoths by the Last Anchor and friends the mood and atmosphere is positive and upbeat. Perhaps this will attract new citizens in the coming months. *


Some of the Improvements to Ulgoth's Beard include:

* Paid for construction of New Blacksmith area and Apprentice Blacksmith added.
* Paid for construction of New Barn for the farmers and additional Cow.
* Paid for and donated armors and weapons to equip the 3 or 4 militia guardsmen.
* Will be holding classes for literacy soon. - player run - minimal assistance.
* Will be training guardsmen on fighting techniques - player run - minimal assistance.
* Aiden Thatcher repaired the fishing boats.
* Barnacle Bob got new nets and gear for fishing thanks to the Last Anchor.
