Situation: In the past week NME forces have assaulted and occupied a tourist town designated 'Stronghold.' Most of the population has fled leaving the town and historical sites open to fortification. The most relevant structure is a stone fortress originally built in the early 1300's to protect access to the nearby harbor.
