Seasonal visitors for shanty towns revision




This is like the last post a revision adding 50 entries to the Seasonal Visitors to our murder hobo shanty town

A few interesting developments in murderhoboology.


The Empire has bought in over a thousand convicts to labour and settle the south of Exile Island. Many of them have been put on labour details into open cut dungeon mines. Everything is run by the military with many prisoners with skills being freed and given land.
