Tuesday, August 5, 1650
Evening. Dinner has been eaten, and a baptism performed in the chapel. There are 20 stones on the top of the lighthouse, hoisted by the unsupported crane. The net for the supported crane has been laid out and concealed, with food upon it (I will need a % roll from Nine-toes for setting the trap). The counterweight has been created using the other crane's net, and now sits, full of pieces of wood, on the top of the lighthouse as well, linked to the net on the ground.
Silvius and Nine-toes stand at the top, along with Zanfrancesco, Gerhard, Hans and Rupert. Hans is tending the lighthouse, spreading the oil over the wood. In order to lift the stones and drop them, Silvius is stripped of his armor, and neither is carrying a weapon (they are laying next to their feet, if needed). The crossbow is 3/4 loaded, but will be difficult to use.
As the sun sets it only now occurs to people that the space immediately under the lighthouse will be the darkest area, and difficult to see. This becomes more pronounced as Hans lights the wood, and the fire spreads and casts its glow on the island.
Before anything else happens, please correct errors or forgotten points.
