==Basic Settlement Rules:==

At the end of each week the party will discuss what they wish to build during the next week of play. The party may begin construction on any number of buildings so long as they have tool sets to use. A set of tools contains the following.

2 Hammers
2 Tamps
1 Shovel
1 50ft length of rope
1 Pully
2 Axes
1 Saw

Tools can be built at the woodcrafter's shop and Blacksmith's shop.

Constructing a building requires a set number of sessions. Most buildings only require one session to build but some require more. If it requires more it will be listed in its description.

The party is given a sheet of graph paper that marks out their settlement. They will chose where buildings go and where they will build defenses.

Whenever there is a raid the city will be drawn on the map and the raid played out. If the party builds proper defenses the defence of the town will not be difficult.

The Party gets to determine where builds are set, allowing them to build a city that funnels enemies into areas where they can be dealt with. Defensive structures and magical devices may also help in the defense of the city.

==Gathering:==

The settlement has a set number of gathering parties that it can send out each day. The majority of the game revolves around gathering resources for the construction of buildings and protecting the gathering parties.

Each session the party determines what materials the gathering parties will work for. Each party earns 500gp worth of a resource and then returns, storing it in the storage pits.

The group may send up to 5 groups to gather resources. And there are specific tasks that can be preformed to increase the yield of a certain resource like mines for ores and the like.

At the beginning of each session the parties depart and gather resources. For every group sent there is a 15% chance they will be attacked by something or otherwise need assistance. When this occurs the party is dispatched to assist them. The reward for this is extra resources, either from the enemies they kill, or from something discovered during the battle.

If nothing happens the party will be tasked with other things, such as exploring, delving for information or special materials, or raids on enemy encampments.



==Consumption:==

The civilians will consume a set amount of your food every day. 10 civilians consume 1gp worth of food. Farms produce food at a set rate and gathering parties can supplement this ammount. During the winter civlians must eat more to maintain their weight and warmth... making them consume 1.5gp per 10 civilians.


==Deaths:==

Raiding parties will take every opportunity to slay civilians. They will burn buildings, destroy materials, and ruin crops if they are left unengaged for more than 4 rounds. Any time they are near civilian buildings with people inside them and unengaged roll 1d100. If the result is greater than 80-HD, where HD is the number of hit dice the raider has, that raider will try to find and slay a civilian. If the first % roll is succesfull roll another D%. If this roll is greater than 50 the model is engaged by a member of the militia. The raider takes 1d8 damage and is engaged for 1d4 rounds. If the roll fails a civilian is found and slaughtered.

Buildings

==Buildings:==

The Settlement can sport a variety of buildings. Early on in the campaign the primary goal will be to gather the materials needed to build housing for the 100 people drawn into the portal during the casting. Without homes with which to retreat during bad weather and monster attacks the civilians will become prey to the antagonists, causing more casualties per raid.

A running count of materials is kept and the actions taken by the party aid the other workers in gathering materials. When the party has enough materials for a building they may begin construction. They may build as many buildings at one time as they have tools to do so with.

Settlement buildings are split into four types.

==Settlement Buildings:== Settlement buildings are meant to improve the lives of the civilian population, allowing them to focus more on advanced tasks. These buildings aid them in organization and protect them from enemies and the elements.

Hut: (Provides Living space for one family or 5 civilians)
Materials: Wood x100gp, Thatching x100gp, Plaster x50gp
Size: 3x3

Hutch: (Provides Living space for 2 families or 10 civilians)

Size: 4x4

Domocile: (Provides living space for 5 families or 50 civilians)
Materials: Wood x1000gp, Thatching x500gp, Plaster x200gp
Size: 6x6

Town Hall: (Provides a meeting place for local government to be run. If a town hall is built, the city will be better able to function and defend itself. This provides the settlement with several bonuses stated below)

Materials: None(Produces 100gp in stone when built)

==Defensive Structures:== Defensive Structures improve the defendability of the small patch of land that the settlements claims. Weakening attacks or forcing enemies to take routes that funnel them into kill zones. Or outright denying them access at all without siege engines.

==Workshops:== Workshops produce finished goods. From weapons, to armor, to other materials used for more advanced projects.

Materials: Wood x300gp, Thatching x75gp, Plaster x100gp
Size: 2x2

Stonecrafter's Shop: (This shop allows the party to craft items made of stone, such as simple stone hammers and weapons. It can also enhance the creation of stone walls and buildings made of stone)

Smokehouse: (This workshop helps your hunters preserve their catch, increasing the amount of food available to the settlement. This increases the amount of food garnered by a gathering party by 50%. It does not increase the output of farms)

Size: 3x3

==Arcane Structures:== Arcane Structures are the last type to be built. They require large amounts of materials and special items but their ability to enhance the settlement goes far beyond the other building types.

When the hammer activates any enemy within 20ft must make a reflex save DC24 or take 6d6 electricty damage. If the weather is bad the damage is upgraded to 6d10 and the save DC is increased by 2.

Teleportation Link: (This building links the settlement to an ancient and often faulty teleportation system created by the first group of Agalians to come though the gate. It allows access to many sites almost instantly, drastically reducing travel times and allowing the party to better defend their homes [given that they will almost always be there when stuff goes down].)
Materials: Stone x3000, Wood x1000, 1 Arcane Crystal, 1 Mithril Rune Circle, 1 Crystal Ball, 2 Runes of Teleportation
Size: 4x4

=Material Gathering and secondary resources=

When a gathering party is sent out they are sent out to gather a specific primary material. The following are primary materials.

Wood
Stone
Ore
Food

During the gathering process gatherers will bring back a percentage of their primary material gain in secondary materials, materials that are needed but are gathered as part of the process as opposed to outright going for that material.

The following are secondary materials and the primary material they are linked to.

Thatching - Wood
Plaster/Grout - Stone
Gemstones - Ore
Alchemical Supplies - Wood/Food
