Sun Sep 22nd, 2013
With the 123rd Map of the Week we take a first look at the Miners Camps in
the Audharhome enclaves. Three camps house the miners of the five mines.
The three are nearly identical. When Count Arnosht reopened the five mines
of the Audhar, 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

9. County Canteen Woodshed.

10. Ore Wagon.
