It’s time to come clean.
Fortress Mamea is not an actual fortress. I have described various parts of it with fortress-like words (like armoury) — all of the parts exist… but in a real-world Kiwi quarter-acre section and house kind of way. (Hey, what did you expect? I’m a writer.)
And the reason for this moment of truth is that the inhabitants of Fortress Mamea are leaving West Auckland and moving north where — with, as always, the Goddess’ indulgence — a new home has been established.
Located in the rolling hills outside of Whangarei, the new, more substantial and redoubtable Fortress Mamea is over fourteen acres of land, bounded on three sides by a
moat stream, and includes:
- paddocks for the Cavalry troop;
- airfield and hangar for the close air support element;
- one defensible official entry point, easily upgradeable with dragon’s teeth and balistraria;
- at least 500 square metres of
arable landgardens, orchards and … edible-stuff-growing areas;
- and nine acres of woodland for company-size manoeuvres.
More space. Less excuses.
