Jörðgarð Map of Week #123 - Miners Camp
|Description:||With the 123rd Map of the Week we take a first look at the Miners Camps in the Auðarhome enclaves. Three camps house the miners of the five mines. The three are nearly identical. When Count Arnošt reopened the five mines of the Auðar, he built three camps to house and supply the miners and to provide support for the mines. The one exception is the high southwesternmost camp which serves only the cassiterite mine. It has a two-story bunkhouse rather than a four-story bunkhouse because it serves only half as many miners as the other two camps. In all other respects, the layout for all three mining camps is just about the same.
1. Latrine. These house serves as a common jakes for the entire camps, and they are the only jakes. They house four inner stalls with separate doors and a jakes in each.
2. Distant Trails Trading Co. Office. These offices are minor stations for the trading costers. Each employs a merchant as a manager and a commoner as a laborer. Both are human males and females. They are responsible for seeing to it that the costers' wagons are in good condition and that the draught horses are fed and rested. The second story of the building has bunks where the coster's teamsters can sleep.
3. Bunkhouse. The buildings have four stories with open bay sleeping barracks, each with 25 beds. Each miner has his or her own foot locker. All of the miners are human male and female commoners. (The bunkhouse near the cassiterite mine has only two stories).
4. Distant Trails Trading Co. Wagonhouses.
5. Distant Trails Trading Co. Corral.
6. Distant Trails Trading Co. Horse Barn.
7. County Store. These small stores sell all the things that can be considered basic needs of the miners. They also can order other items from the larger county store in Mineville, which Distant Trails then transports to the camp store.
8. County Canteen. This is where the miners get their meals as well as beer brought up in barrels from the Miners Inn in Mineville. Each miner and those who work for the county or Distant Trails is entitled to three meals and one quart/liter of beer daily. Those who stay evenings and drink more beer must pay 2 copper pieces per pint/half-liter tankard. Visitors pay the same price for beer, 3 copper pieces for breakfast and a bronze piece for a noon or evening meal. Everything runs on a self service basis. There are no waiters or waitresses. The canteens are run by a merchant manager. They employ an artisan cook and a commoner laborer. All are human males and females.
9. County Canteen Woodshed.
10. Ore Wagon.
