Summary of Activities from the 22nd of June
Fifth line of Cabaret grapes required additional pruning. Bloodmoth larvae infesting over one half of plants. Low damage to leafage. Recommendation is to continue to monitor leafage through summer.
Relative humidity in wine cellar at seventy and eight percent. Will continue to monitor. Recommendation to implement air exchange system by enchanting wooden rotary blade to push volumes of air through drilled chute leading to ground. Dolores disapproves of methodology. Her recommendation proposes using Gust of Wind once per day to blast six hundred cubic feet of air through space. I must admit the efficacy of the plan, but would rather not have any expend the mental focus necessary to cast such an evocative spell on a daily basis.
No precipitation today is of mild interest. Dolores suggests that we keep a druid on retainer in the event of drought. I would rather nature run its course, and if necessary, construct a water tower for an irrigation system.
Planks purchased from the Loggers’ Guild are of high quality. Will need to expand barrelling output and secure a trade agreement with a fishing village to the South in order to expand production. An audience with Minotaurs to inquire about this will soon be necessary.
An adventuring party came through Titan’s Reach on the morning. I’m suspicious about their intent, particularly if they’re looking to excavate at the ruins. They are likely looking to revive a magic item, and that is going to attract trouble once word catches on about the origins of Titan’s Reach. This location is flowing with innate and wild magic, which I’m certain will be open to exploitation if we aren’t careful. Mauritius has done an admirable job keeping the Panther’s Claw in good repute and repair while his family secures fame and fortune, but they will not be around for several weeks. He may need to act in order to address this threat to our town’s safety.
The adventurers travelled past the vineyard with our resident rogue. He must be following them to ensure their safety. I would’ve preferred to have a chat about this before he decided to help, but he’s an impulsive lad and difficult to reason with. Alas, the festival is approaching and after the noon I will be preoccupied with the New Year’s festival.
Addendum to summary of activities from the 22nd of June
I am currently in transit to rescue the adventuring party from a terrible mishap in the ruins. Their cleric has noted that the party was attacked by giant spiders, which is highly peculiar. Spiders are not normally active during the day, and I have not heard word that any pods have as close to Titan’s Reach as the ruins. Go into the Wending Woods for a day and you might encounter giant spiders, phase spiders, even sword spiders if you are truly unlucky, but this is of concern. Mauritius is leading this search, and I have offered my services and have prepared rations and rescuing equipment. Dolores cautioned that this is not like the old times, and that I am out of practice for adventuring. I admit that I will not be flinging fireballs into the fray - those days have long since past - but this old wizard still has a few tricks up his sleeve, despite the dust on his spellbook.
