“A Grand Census of Blackengorge.”
Apparently, that’s what Tymander Small thought to call it. A list of the people in the town and what they do, so they can start to be taxed. Only a small amount, mind you, but a little put aside to ensure that when trade comes flooding in from the Islands, the town can purchase any essential supplies from a central pot.
Tymander is absolutely convinced that it will be very soon when the first ships come across the waters to our new town. He wants to be ready as an independent community, and not be swallowed up whole by some profiteer.
The Town Council spent hours in the Bronze Lion discussing it, with heated arguments on all sides, so Skillet says. Although the decision to tax people hasn’t been made, the decision to perform the census has, so as a professional scribe, the task has fallen to me.
There are sixty-five folk in our humble town, including seven of the Hillfolk, two of the Woodfolk, and two of the Smallfolk. There are six main families – the Smalls, the Goodberrys, the Draxs, the Lowfields, the Greenwoods, and the Ironshields – although there are a handful of others that have made the initial trip across from the Islands. Alongside these are ourselves, the Priests of Pelor, and the sturdy Guards.
With farmers, lumberjacks, hunters, blacksmiths, miners, masons, millers, and tailors we are a very self-sufficient community. The town owns eight acres of plantations, mainly barley and wheat, but also potatoes, beets, pumpkins, and beans. There are also three cows, as well as a number of chickens.
The town is governed by the Town Council, consisting of Morninglord Tremak, Guard Captain Barghest, and Tymander Small.
