Following the advice of other settlements, a majority of the general workers have been conscripted as military reservists. Clad in leather armor and armed with wooden crossbows, they've proven to be a reliable first response to low level threats, like thieves.
One unlucky kobold thief attacked Ushat Fissuretour while the unarmed dyer was helping to clear out the aftermath of a siege. Immediately, the nearest haulers let loose with their bolts. The kobold only managed a minor cut to Ushat's lower body before being chased out of the trade tunnels and slain. Tosid Freeoil landed the killing shot. Ushat the dyer only suffered a cut to his lower body and was able to walk to the hospital on his own :).
