After returning from the wrecked township just east of Centek, the circle disbanded to get some rest after the excitement of the day. Tamlin, however, remained awake for several hours in an attempt to give the town some sort of defensive edge against their foes from the Realm. After devising a plan to place wooden spikes along the remains of the wave break in the harbor, he, too, retired for the evening. The next day, Captain Raven began the effort to enact the plan by having the townsfolk begin to chop down some sizable trees. Ivory, looking to use her martial prowess to help the town in other ways, went to seek out the training instructor at the soldier’s barracks, and trained with them into the afternoon. Silent, River, and Krail all were woken the next day by Ginger, who hen informed them the captain would like to meet with them at the docks, and then excused herself to inform Tamlin the same. Tamlin, woke to find 4 injured trainees in the clinic area of his house, likely left there by the Master Trainer, earlier in the morning. After seeing to their injuries, he was greeted by Ginger, given his message, and then headed to the docks to meet the others. The young page boy, at the request of Raven, asked for Ivory to meet him at the docks to discuss more tactical options for the city.
Captain Raven, stood out on the furthest standing pier and stared down the ships as he waited for the circle to arrive. Once the entire group was present he informed them that he had started men on the task of gathering the wood for Tamlin’s plan, and asked if they had come up with any other bright ideas in the mean time. A few ideas were raised, but given the seriously short supply of resouces int he town, not many were plausable at the time. Requested that the circle keep an eye on the enemy ships, and the logging operation. River, Tamlin, and Krail stayed at the docks to keep an eye on the enemy ships while Ivory and Silent went to the gates to watch over the logging operation. Ivory, looking of extremely northern decent thought it would be a good idea for her to dress as an Air Aspect officer in the Lookshy army, as it might draw any attackers to strike at her before mortals, giving them precious time to take cover from the attack. Raven agreed, giving Ivory the closest thing he could to help her disguise.
Silent, having no issue with manual labor, did his best to blend in as a laborer while out helping to keep watch. In the last hours of the day, Ivory caught movement out in the wooded area and insisted that Silent investigate. Silent, sneaked out to the area Ivory pointed him to, to find a roost where someone was watching the gates, and the logging operation. But, with the low amount of light, and the amount of forest the spy could hide in, he and Ivory both thought it best to head back to report their findings. After a short conversation with Captain Raven, they decided it would be best to try to get someone skilled in both stealth and woodland tracking to find the observer.
Meanwhile the rest of the circle had Noticed some interesting activity on the realm ships: They were running ropes along the rails of their ships. Tamlyn sent a runner to warn the Captain of activity among the ships, though there was no discernible reason for such an action. The rest of the night was uneventful for the town after nightfall.
The next day, the groups resumed their duties from the previous day.
