  • Animal pens - Civic holdings pens for animals and beasts of burden.
  • Night Soil Collectors - Civic service that collects Human Excrement for private toilets (etc) and arranges for its disposal (Treated and then used as a fertiliser)
  • Tax Office - used in some towns and cities to assess and collect local taxes.
  • Community Hall - Rarely built in urban areas, community halls are most commonly found in the Hinterlands and are little more that large sheds. It is a place for bring and buy sales, cook-outs, barn dances and other communal activities such as recruiting fairs, weddings, sewing bees or religious meetings - and it is may well be used as extra storage by the whole community. It is sometimes built by the community, for the community.
  • Office of Public Works - Oversee and maintain public buildings and infrastructure.

  • Park – a recreational area with lawns, flowerbeds and trees.
  • Jail – a lock up for keeping prisoners secured until their sentence confirmed. There are no long term prisoners, as they are way too expensive. Other forms of justice such as fines, branding, outlawing, exile and death are preferred.
  • Court House – where many legal cases are heard and punishments decided.
  • Orphanage – provides basic accommodation for children without parents. Brilliant place for ‘charity’ donations.
  • Hospital – Non-clerical basic medicine for your citizens. It isn’t the best or quickest healing – but it is something they might be able to afford.
