Farming Neighbourhood

By:

The siege was bad, and with fire decimated a large part of a town. As life returned, several people returned to their roots and prospered.

The siege was bad, and with fire decimated a large part of a town. As life returned, the abandoned ruins were teared down, new laws against fire raised the taxes for most houses, depending on the number of their stories. A few Hobbits have returned to their roots (so to speak), and built their holes as in old times. Naturally good in agriculture, and close to a needy market, the business proved lucrative, and soon other farmers followed their example.

The neighbourhood is a sort of village inside of a town; however, due to many thieves and poor people nearby, fences are everywhere, and to have several guarding dogs is a must. The neighbours have seen little movement in the last few decades, so everybody knows everyone else. While generally friendly, ‘outsiders’ are instantly suspicious, and many tend to ask of one’s intents while here. In these parts, trespassing can’t be a mistake, so watch out where you tread.

Half point off because I hate Hobbits and Podlings. Other than that, it makes sense to have such a place. Just now that the seige is over, why are they still farming? Can it be that profitable?

Good point that deserves a detail more: not only was a large part of the town decimated, but many people have died as well (and many have fled before the war, too). This made farming inside of the (formerly) crowded town really possible.

Farming close to a needy market is likely to be profitable, question is if there are not more profitable avenues to pursue. Once the city grows enough again, farms will surely give way to other enterprises...

...add plot hooks about conflicts of the farmers and wealthy merchants that want to start new business on their land.

Its alright. Now Kendra, if you hate those poor hobbits so much why don't you go and do a remake of the race?

Sugarheads

       By: Murometz

These little beetles have heads at both ends of their bodies. This allows them to feed on leaves at twice the rate of their normal cousins, causing great damage to crops. They look like ladybugs more than actual beetles, but have no wings. They have a funny way of moving if one stops to watch them, as both heads seem to vie for picking the direction at any given time. Their favorite nourishment is sugar cane. After feasting on these for some time, they develop short bursts of frenetic energy, and can be seen racing back and forth without purpose, which looks quite comical to onlookers. They are otherwise normal bugs. Of course the pc's might not know that.
