Development Plans for Midmarch
Or how the various settlements fit into Henry's Plans.

Henry's commission is to create a province that forms self-sustaining safety buffer to the south of Brevoy.  It should be economically viable and stop bandits and monsters from operating along the borders of southern Brevoy.  Ideally, it should also provide a defence against military actions from the south.

Henry's plan is to build a road from Varnhold all the way to the East Sellen river - and use that as his basis for development.

Northern Midmarch
Northern Midmarch will fall under the direct management of the Governor of Midmarch.

Narlemarch Reserve – the area surrounding the Fey Home in the northern Narlemarch.  This area will be developed as a managed wilderness area, under the auspices of the Druids and Rangers of The Green Faith.  It has little prospect for economic development.  The following are already in place or planned.
  • Elkwall – Shrine to Erastil in his aspect of Patron to  Hunters and Trappers, overseen by Rook Sanderson.
  • Hunters Rest – Permanent base for the scouts who patrol the reserve, and the woodsmen who work in the area, overseen by Aris’ta.  It also acts as a safe haven for hunters and woodsmen who make a living in the Narlemarch.
  • Bar-Z – a rural area with a watchtower and a Horse Breeding ranch by the druid Zorah.  Although part of the reserve, the village is open to sympathetic developments.
  • The Top Road - a section of road, patrolled from Westgate, that passes through the very top of the Narlemarch.  This  will stay as a wilderness area and is  only open to wilderness developments.


Western Road
 A road will be pushed through the forest to open up to connect Tusk to West Midmarch.  I would like to see a settlement built, close to the Wyvern Bridge (just left of hex-1) to establish a water-based trade route to New Stetven.  The road is already under construction with sections built at Tatzleford and Ironkeep.  It will exit the Narlemarch via Erastil's Statue and then head straight to the Wyvern Bridge.

Southern Narlemarch - While outside my Jurisdiction, the druid Zelona intends to develop a holding based on The Old Keep.

Outpost – Outpost and its surrounding area will be developed as the rural heartland and  ‘Bread Basket’ of Midmarch.  It is good growing land and will be filled with farms and other rural businesses.  There is plenty of room for secondary and rural developments, such as Country Estates, Vineyards and ranches.   Developments of that nature will want support from Taverns, Road houses, Breweries, Shops, Markets etc ….

Olston – Oleg and Svetlana have agreed to let their area develop into a small town, which will serve as the community and economic hub for the Northern Narlemarch.  Following conventional practices, Olston is open for economic investment.  It can only support limited development in town, but can support the development of  two hamlets.

East Midmarch - Eastgate marks our furthest expansion to the east, and that part of the Kamelands is open to development.  I do not intend to settle South of a line marked by the Sootscale holdings  (Burial Mound and Hex-28 only.

West Midmarch - Now that the Top Road has been established, land to the west of the Narlemarch has been opened up for settlement and development.  I am open to all suggestions for this high quality arable land.

Family Holdings
Delem Trading – an established trading company with bases in Restov, Brundeston and New Stetven – that represents the core wealth of my family.  It has a presence at Newgate and Tusk, and will continue to support developments in Midmarch.

Newgate –  will develop as a small town and will provide a gateway to Restov and further into Brevoy.  Newgate will form the basis of the estates that I leave to my heirs, and as such will be developed to suit my immediate family needs.  However, there will be room for other economic and social developments.  It will also act as a last resort defensive buffer between Midmarch and Brevoy - should Midmarch fall, Newgate will be the last line of defense for Brevoy's southern Border.  It is open for investment.

Eastgate / Westgate  Two new outposts for House leMaistre.  They will help control traffic as it flows through Midmarch, perform a defensive function, and may well grow into small towns.  Both are open for investment.

Rikka’s Armoury – Rikka will continue to offer a special initial discount to all members of the Midmarch Chapter.

The House of Pharasma, under Mother Beatrix, will continue to support settlements across Midmarch by building graveyards.

Ringbridge
When Valoria and I were granted title to Ringbridge, it was on condition that we made sure that the bridge across the River Shrike was properly secured – and that will always be at the front of our minds.  However, Ringbridge also has the most northerly jetty on the River Shrike, with a good road link on to Restov.

We have walled the town and expanded  added a second district that will favour new development.   The original district will concentrate on trade  and mercantile interests, while other non-military developments will be welcome on the new North District.

The Ringbridge Bastion, will become a palisaded village,  and is an ideal spot for military based developments of all sorts.  Close to the main road and jetty it is a convenient location for mercenary companies -  while students form military schools and colleges are welcome to home their skills patrolling with our guards.

Eventually we expect to build a second bastion on the far side of the bridge - that mimics the original bastion.

Tusk
Tusk is expected to become the economic centre and Capital of Midmarch - although any development plans are down to the Tusk Council.
