Jacob will organize some security for the growing village. Picking a handful of trustworthy warrior types, he will work out a schedule of watches, mostly for the night watches. With no overt threats so far, they can help out during the daylight hours and still be prepared to help defend should the need arise.
Jacob also finds a few ranger types and convinces them to scout for food and fresh water. With all this work going on, the people will need food soon, and water even sooner.
With Micheal no where in site, concern is beginning to grow in Jacob's gut. Perhaps he should not have gone off with that half-orc witch.
