Spring Year 4:
Two gnomads, Fab and Fimimi arrived with the spring rains and were welcomed by everyone. They were both given hauling duties as we really need some stuff moved around. Golems continued appearing, but not as many as last season. Progress is progress...
Creating the grand fortress envisioned by our founders has run into a bit of a snag, as apparently one side of the fort was measured in cubits and the other in yards. We spent most of the season reworking some rooms and the great hall. The architect has been flogged.
The goblins are continuing to probe our defenses with more and better armed troops. Both raids this season contained five goblins in total, with the second raid having well armed bronze wearing troops. Both raids were repelled with only minor injuries, but we should probably begin work on our own bronze weapons and armor for our rank and file. Also Hestumpepixil, squad leader of The Primitive Manglers, will be awarded the title Defender of the Fort for being the first gnome to reach ten confirmed goblin kills (in addition to four golems). May she continue being an example of gnomish bravery and spirit!
The attached is how many boxes it's going to take to send that last raid back to their friends.
