Aprentice Harbormastering


As I’m sure many of you know, one of the few records of the prior expedition left easily accessible in the library is the notes of their Harbormaster, with the arrival and departure of various ships marked. I was inspired by this to believe it may be helpful for someone among us to keep similar track, and and focused on doing so in the time between the Festival of the Dawning and the Fire Festival.

I believe the following list is all the major ships that arrived or left during our first months. There were some smaller fishing vessels that I did not take note of, and several ships that passed the settlement without making landfall.

I intend to try and create a similar list between now and the next Festival. I am curious, however, if others find this useful information to gather. If the town does not feel it is an important contribution, I will perhaps move on to other things after the Fall.

Neighbor Hope,

I must thank you for your dedicated work on this matter. Both as a member of the Navy, and as one who grew up in a merchant house, I understand full well the value of what you have helped to provide.

As it stands I will not be able to help you with this as much as I would like. With my own responsibilities and works for this town consuming much of my available time. If you choose to move on, I will understand but so far I grateful for this service you have helped to provide the town.
