Oglethorpe is the name given to their camp by the crew of the Double Down, an exploration and trading vessel from Savannah, Georgia. While the camp itself is only a few thousand square feet, the territory frequented by its members encompass a portion of the Broken Occident (mostly around Mersey Cove), Shiloh Hills, and Ethereal Eclipse.

1.  Area

Travel-worn paths are evident throughout the area, with much regular travel occurring between the camp, the dock, and Rabbit Lake, as well as the northern end of the territory, near Wolf's Peak. In some areas, rocks have been set down specifically to kill the grass, making the pathways even more obvious.

Finn McGuff is often patrolling the general area and is the most likely first point of contact for visitors. Occasionally, Bluebonnet Mississippi and Hurricane Cardiff can also be found on patrol.

1.1  The Camp

Four tents and four lean-tos currently comprise the main area of the camp. The structures, each a few dozen feet from its neighbours, are situated in a circle with a fire pit at the center. The tents and lean-tos are made from various animal skins and furs, held together by wood and rope, and are relatively stable. Each crew member has their own "bunk" while the two camp guests, Forest and Gemini, share a lean-to.

The largest lean-to is being used for storage of food and contains a variety of wooden boxes, some containing dried meat, some containing fresh fish half-covered in seawater, and some containing fresh meat. There is also a small, deep pit, half filled with water, which contains a box of fresh meat.

Off to the side of the camp is a large tree with several metal meat hooks strapped to a branch just above eye level. There are often deer or boar carcasses hanging here in various states of processing. Further off to the side are a collection of prey bones.

1.2  The Dock

As of early December 2020, construction of the 60 ft dock is nearly complete. The dock is comprised of a mixture of red pine and white ash wood, stripped of bark and waterproofed with a variety of fat and oils. Some portions of the dock feel a little unstable and wobble slightly, especially under heavy loads, but it's probably fine!

The Double Down is tied to the end of the dock and sits in the water parallel to it with a ramp leading up to the ship. The Double Down is a Caravel-type ship, about 40 feet in length. While docked, its sails are drawn. Most of the material goods the crew has for trade are stored in the ship's hull.

1.3  The Beach

The coast around the dock has become a wood processing center. Trees that have been cut down are dragged here where their bark and branches stripped (for fire wood) and they're waterproofed. There are a dozen or more logs in various stages of processing at any given time.

1.4  The Village

The village is not much of a village yet, but is situated halfway between Mersey Cove and Rabbit Lake. Construction has begun on two large cabins. As of early December 2020, the foundations have been laid in wood.

2.  Animals

The crew currently has one horse!

Brody

  • Stallion
  • Born 2016
  • Obtained from Salsola, late November 2020

Smaller than a draft horse but still "heavy." Noisy, pushy, stubborn. Trained for both riding and pulling work. His size allows him to carry more weight than an average grade horse. Usually being handled by Tobi or Hurricane.

3.  History

After months of unlucky weather, detours, and delays, the Double Down lands in the Broken Occident near the end of October 2020.

The crew set up tents and lean-tos for their camp while they begin construction on a dock in the harbour and proper cabins.
