LoR - Port Emerald Harbor Watchtower

This is a watchtower on an island in the Port Emerald Harbor. It is one of the first finished buildings built out of stone in the new colony. It is part of the part of the formidable harbor defenses, and its garrison watches at all times for pirates or anything which would threaten ships. It has three colored lanterns at the corners which are used for navigation at night, and a powerful catapult weapon for use against enemy ships. This catapult is of a new type which uses arms made of an elastic wood found

in New Lenfald to provide its power, since the twisted rope torsion springs of normal ballistas stretch and become useless in the humidity of the tropics.

 

This tower is from considerably later in the history of the colony than my New Lenfald series so far has been, since it is built of finished stone. I think it is roughly contemporary with GC XII.
