This thread is intended for people who are interested in building in Oleg's Trade Post hex.
Cyrus and Valoria Lebeda-Ondari have the final say in any building decisions in the main hex.
Henry makes decisions for the lighter coloured outer area - afte consultation with the Lebeda-Ondaris



Cyrus Ondari has been appointed Master of Ringbridge with a remit to build a settlement that can defend the bridge across the Shrike River.  He and his wife control development in that Hex.

Cyrus's troops can patrol the lighter outer ring - so they are available for development.  Those hex's are still under Henry's control, but will not be developed without consultation with Cyrus and Val.

This is an In Character thread.

Cyrus had spoken to many over their journey back out to Midmarch, taking the opportunity one night around the fire to offer the following encouragement, "Henry has honored Valoria and I greatly in the gift of our home and I want to extend that opportunity to any of the Officers. Come, settle or build in Ringbridge. Vik, Adoven, establishing a jetty in Ringbridge and opening up trade between our two settlements will only allow our people to thrive. Percy, it is good to see you out here once more, I would be remiss if I didn't extend the invitation to you as well. A caravan hub would also make a nice addition. Lex, I'd love to have my men outfitted with bows and arrows made by your hand. Mariam, Marik, Jicca, Tansy. You are all welcome in Ringbridge anytime."

He paused and added, "Though I would never pressure any of you to, of course."

OOC: Please feel free to invest in Ringbridge. I will work with any and all on making it worth your while :).

"With Lady Valoria's kind offer of financial backing, my partner and I feel we can establish a water-borne trade betwixt Tusk City and Ringbridge, building Jetties in both settlements. We hope to have her fully paid off within a year, with interest. We will need craftsmen, but that should not be a problem" Adoven declares.

"My goal to build a proper inn at Ringbridge seems like a matter of expanding as resources provide themselves," Cass added. "With that in mind, I would like to begin the project by starting with a tavern as basis as soon as possible. A restaurant might serve nearly as well, but a tavern is always good for local morale."

Cyrus nodded to Adoven and Cass, "Indeed! Both plans sound grand to me!" Turning then to Adoven, "Your business partner has been a dear friend, it is the least we can do to invest in your future prosperity and I daresay our own!"

Cyrus turned then to Cass, "And I can only imagine the benefits of your touch on Ringbridge. I know your tavern and eventual Inn will help attract the best and brightest to our growing settlement."

Finally, to Gandred he says, "I think we might have a surprise for you dwarf, in addition to overseeing our more utilitarian interests, The Lady Valoria and I have decided a chapel to Torag would be a most welcome addition to Ringbridge. You may not know this, but this place forged my commitment to Henry and to my allies and I think it only fitting that we honor the forge father here in Ringbridge. Will you oversee that development and ensure all is prepared to honor Torag appropriately?"

In reply to Adoven (msg # 3):

Valoria puts a friendly hand on Adoven's shoulder. "Yes indeed, Viktoria is a very good friend of mine and I wish for nothing more than to see the two of you succeed. Besides, the Jetty that will be built we be a boon to the people who live here and add a little increase in tax revenue. I will just need repayment as soon as you are able, as we have our own projects to advance. We will both go far helping each other."

"Cass, your tavern will be a welcome sight to all who live and visit. Good food, good drink and merriment."

Having some of the better wine passed out, Valoria lifts her glass to the made plans. "To our health and prosperity."

Cass accepted the wine with a gracious nod and lifted his glass along with the toast as well. "To our health and prosperity."

The bard become businessman had listened to the plans that the others were proposing and he was glad that each venture was starting off so well.

"A Symphony of Swans should reach Road House status as soon as the overnight guest quarters can be added on to the tavern. It will start to look like a proper inn from on that point on. And hopefully it will become a beacon of hospitality in Ringbridge."

Cass felt it might be a good idea to divulge some more of his plans. "I also have hopes that a promising young merchant will join me in business and act in my stead while I am tasked with my other official duties as an officer of Midmarch. Hospitality and entertainment will be the primary focus, but I do believe that there may be other business ventures in Ringbridge that I can help bring to fruition. With the careful guidance of the Lord and Lady Lebeda-Ondari, of course."

Gehron entered, not generally comfortable or skilled at putting his point across, but if he was going to come to these new lands, he wanted to make his mark, as well as have something to do.

"I would like to propose two... establishments. Whilst drinks can be had at The Swan, there are other ways that we can all be entertained, without having to go to Tusk. The first is somewhere for games of chance, cards, dice. Better all in one place, than scattered at the back of taverns or folks homes. The other is where people can go and get their rocks off. No-one likes tetchy guards, and if that builds up, well it can get ugly."

"We have decide on the immediate development plans for Ringbridge," Cyrus says glancing across at his wife.  "Lord Henry is going to build a Serai that will help link our trade to Restov, while Torag's House will be rewarded with new accommodation for the priests.   We have decide to decided to build a small wall around the town, that will keep  the local wildlife out and make it easier to control intruders, and to build a public bath, to help maintain hygiene and cleanliness withing the town.

We have also started to build a watchtower down by the bridge, to be known as Bastion, which help fulfill our commitment to guard the only real crossing point on the Shrike."

"That would be a welcome addition to the town." Valoria agrees, smiling across at Robert.  "The extra population and business it attracts would help the town out greatly.  However, the more people there are the better the facilities they expect in the town.  So a donation towards developing a civic building would be most appreciated.  However, the town is growing so fast we aren't quite sure  where we will be by the time that spring rolls around ..."

Tib rocks back in his chair and runs his fingers through his hair.  "Lord Henry asked me to drop by and tell you that he is signing over control of his Serai, here in Ringbridge, to Domitius.  He doesn't want you to think he is abandoning the town, but  his business priorities have changed slightly over the last few weeks.  He  has asked me to say that, as Governor,  he will continue to monitor and support the town as best he can."

Tib stands, and with a by-your-leave to Cyrus and Valoria draws a document from his jacket.  ”Lord Henry has asked me to make an announcement on his behalf.” looking down he starts to read  …

”After careful consideration of my Charter Duties to protect the southern border of Brevoy, I have decided on a slightly different strategy for Midmarch.  From now on, I am going to concentrate my efforts on establishing a new ‘South Road, that runs from Varnhold, east across Midmarch until it reaches the East Sellen river.  From there we will be able to forge trading routes with New Stetven, Drelev and beyond into Pitax. That will complement the other trading routes that we have established to Restov and Mivon – although there is no reason why they can’t be developed further.

To this end, I will not be sending any more expiratory groups south of tusk.  Come springtime, I will send trade envoys east to Varhnold, and send a group to explore the area weat of Oleg’s.  A third group will continue our work in the Narlemach, after all we don’t want any more surprises such as groups of Gnome eating Kobolds on our borders.

That doesn’t mean that any of you are banned from  working in the southern hills, just that my focus will be elsewhere.”


With that, he sits down and surveys the room, looking at the expressions on people’s faces.
