Sealing the mine tunnel to Sarghress area

Postby Thaluka2 on Fri Oct 30, 2009 10:43 pm

Made a little poll to see what people think. Before I've argued against this, but the situation has changed. We're now under direct threat of disruptive Sarghress raids, spies, and assassins infiltrating our cavern in order to hinder our production and slow down the Sharen war effort. I think it's time to seal this off as best we can. While it won't be perfect it will slow anyone down and make it obvious if we *are* getting unwelcome visitors from that direction. What do you guys think?

Whoever voted no, you don't have to, but I'm curious as to the reasoning? x3

Alright:

It's really tiny, and I think that closing it off takes time that we should spend elsewhere. Plus, we might have use of it later.

In my response, I think sealing it off for now, would be a good defense for us for the moment. It doesn't have to be a permanent seal which we can never have access to again, but I think a blockade at the moment would be in the interest of safety.

However, that's my opinion. Thinking a bit ahead there.

It's incredibly small, and we have no idea if it's been discovered yet. While it's better safe than sorry, time is of the essence right now.

If it is so small, it won't take much time to seal it up. It's a small price to pay for something which could potentially cause us a lot of trouble in the future, particularly given the obvious Sarghress threat.

Oh, right, that reminds me: Sealing the hole would likely cause meta-game issues, since, to our knowledge, we've never been threatened by the Sarghress.

If something is to be done about that mine passage, then it should be obstructed, but not 'sealed' due to reasons of mine ventilation. When we first found this passage, IIRC there was a faint whistling sound that indicates air flow. I do not think it would be a good idea to stop that.

We know the Sharen declared war on the Sarghress at the council. We know random people came out of nowhere and threatened to destroy us after they took out the Sharen if we helped them in preparations for a war. We know where said tunnel leads because we've been through the other side.

Honestly?

It's a completly useless thing to think about. It's barely large enough for the (unarmored) scouts to get through. Image if we had people wearing weapons and armor going through.

Also, in direct terms, the unknown people were most likely shadowing the Sharen

Unless anything direct comes up to make me change my mind. I'm case closing this. ^^;

if one of our guys have made it though to see the sar land and we know for certain that 2 sar somehow got into our land ,we don't know if they used it but they have the skill to usae it if they want to , and the mine could be helpful to them why not, If its so incredibly small drop the wall on it and cave it in that won't take much if u ram it with a golem it is "incredibly small"

I think Lt is right. Those 2 probably came to Ther'avare by following the Sharen representative. With all the activity in the mine, they would have a much harder time remaining unnoticed than slipping into the Ther cavern with the festival crowds. It is still very likely that the Sarghress don't realize where that small hole in the wall leads.

Come on, a few blocks to fill a tiny hole. A couple hous work by a couple of builders to eliminate what could be a huge problem for us. Even if we supposedly know no danger, caution would seem the best option for a clan so small as ours.

I agree withthe LT, and just want to add my 2 cents.

We know the hole is there. We can watch it for signs of passage, we can say, "here is a weak point we know about" and use it to our advantage. Keep it looking weak while we strengthen the shit out of our position. It becomes a spy trap. :)

I say we secretly expand it and use it a possible escape tunnel if things with the Sharen go sour.
