ExiCorp architectural competition

Fliers are distributed to various bodies and guilds within Sundren City, Mirakus Post and Port Avanthyr announcing the opening of an architectural competition.

The full details of the site and purpose are omitted from the fliers but the request for "A bold and innovative design to act as a flagship facility, reinvigorate a local economy and become a focal point for the work and social lives of its local community" leave little doubt about the intended development to those in the know.

Those seeking further information are invited to apply to Squirrius Heap at the Exicorp offices in Mirakus.

Squirrius Heap
Mirakus Trade Headquarters

What with the big shift to Mirakus and the issues with trade from Avanthyr that we all know so well, I've been a wee bit cut off from the good word.

But if you're after a bold facility, Stouthammer Ales could have just what you're after. I'll remind you that I crafted the girls here in the Brewery myself, from copper ore to sprocket.

Whether it's a Water Treatment (tm) Facility to keep honest folk hale, a Keg Delivery mechanism for Sundren, or my Project XXXX, I've got a flavor-packed plan to suit any need.

After all, when writing in Common, architecture starts with an 'a', and ends in an 'e', just like ale.

May Stone and Good Ale preserve you

I'm unsure of your purpose and, as usual, it's the Blackwood policy to not ask questions. However, if this situation requires any special security measures, please feel free to let me know. The Blackwood is at your service.

A short, but neatly written note is left within the Exicorp office. It's short, and to the point.

To those concerned,

Should none of better quality step forward, I will gladly lend my knowledge in architecture, and economics to this project. I would require a view of the site, however, to properly evaluate what could be done with the land.

James Frazer makes his way to the appropriate offices, introduced himself as an 'Artifax, Grade G', explains that his resume and employment and confidentiality documentation are on file in the archives, and that he seeks to invest time, effort, and innovation in the architectural project with funds to be provided as required.

All those who have shown an interest in the project receive a package in response.

The package contains:

1/1000 scale surveys (in many parts estimated) of Mirakus Post and its environs.
1/200 scale elevations of the town, running North-South and another East-West
1/200 plans and elevations of the current ExiCorp fort

A brief, largely legalese combined with Archi-talk.

The brief calls for applicants to provide nominal plans, sections and elevations for a facility to replace the existing ExiCorp fort and production facilities. Submissions should include a large, powered (alchemical or other) workshop facility for at least 200 workers, the space should be capable of being subdivided or re-arranged to suit. The workspace also requires secure storage facilities for wet and dry goods, alchemical and constructions supplies, changing facilities, showers and decontamination facilities.

Alchemical laboratories to house in excess of 50 staff, facilities as above.

Arcane research facilities for 20 to supplement work done at Schild Mountain Facility (SMF), facilities as appropriate.

Temple facilities to honour the gods of inspiration, forge, craft and industry.

Office facilities for a further 70 souls, shower, changing and decontamination facilities, incorporating a barracks to house 10.

A secure guard house with hard and soft armouries, strong rooms and any to house equipment deemed necessary to deal with an arcane containment breach, outbreak of sentience amongst constructs or other such disaster. the Guard House should also include temple facilities dedicated to Tempus.

Proposals for increasing the security of the Post as a whole, including new barracks and training facilities for Blackwood mercenaries, gate house, replacement palisades and any necessary anti-seige weaponry are also being accepted as a part of the brief.

Somewhere, a little black haired elf woman swoons over a parcel as she thoughtfully plucks through things.

Plans and miniatures. A document that might take her three days to fully sort out each and every word of it. What more could Thresh possibly ask for? The elf would be found studying each and every detail she can glean, in between her work of checking her fliers and hand outs. For once, on sight, she seems nearly on the verge of outright rapture, having work to fill her otherwise too thoughtful head.

Within a building in the Port, a stout figure pores over the contents of a package away from easy hearing.

"Curse these human scrabblings. No decent runes anywhere.."

"Hmmph, will you look at this, Noland. It's all buildings and no brewery. Hmm, ah. Here we go, 'Wet Goods Storage' and 'Alchemical laboratories'. That's our ticket. We'll keep this valley afloat one vat at a time. Time to have a chat with a few folks, ay reckon. Ho!"

Goggles peer briefly over the document, flipping through the pages like a deck of cards before tossing it onto the nearby workbench and turning their attention to the schema.
"Well, that was straightforwards. Though, I am presuming it is meant to be humanoids, rather than just souls. A bookshelf would probably suffice for seventy souls. Now, where are the nearby subterranean rivers. . . Aught to be useful for hydraulic walls. Are we allowed to mine out safe-rooms? Oh, it'll probably be altered if we aren't, so we can just put them in there. What thickness of doors would we need...?"
The elf begins to look through lists and tables comparing explosive yields and iron-golem combat capacity to penetration through Rolled Homogenous Steel.
