Savage Tide Pathfinder Style
A 15-foot-high wooden palisade surrounds the landward approach into Farshore. While functional, the fortification was built by colonists who didn’t have an experienced engineer to lead them, and a simple glance by someone knowledgeable in such matters shows the wall isn’t nearly as strong as it could be.
*Upgrade – 50 VP; One week or more
A character trained in knowledge (architecture or engineering) can plan several changes to the palisade, including adding sharpening poles on top, and jutting from the base, greased walls, a low moat, and still other changes.
The character must spend two hours a day supervising the work. At the end of the week a DC 25 knowledge check is needed for success, while failure indicates another week is needed. Each additional week grants a +2 bonus.
