Jörðgarð Map of the Week #289 - Greenwood Penal Colony

The 289th Map of the Week shows a traveling penal colony in the Greenwood in which the Northern Circle incarcertaes its prisoners. The colony settles in one location, where the prisoners do forest work and then, when they are done, it is dismantled and reconstructed at the next work site.

Key to the Map:

  1. Gatehouse, Command Center, Barracks and Semaphore Tower

  2. Prisoners' Barracks

  3. Workshop

  4. Guard Towers. A single crossbow archer is stationed in each tower during daytime hours if the prisoners are in the encampment. If most of the prisoners are working outside of the encampment in the daytime hours and during the nighttime hours, only the four outer corners towers are manned. At night, torches mounted every 20 feet/6 meters on the inner palisade wall and on the walls of the prisoner barracks and workshop illuminate the complex.
