Sometime in the next 24 hours we will be switching European Tribune over to a new layout. This will involve a little downtime and no doubt some teething troubles. Do not adjust your set. - Colman

Note the Farmers' Market, but the absence of farmes. Are we to suppose there are several square miles of farmland around The Citadel? Do the farmers live in Neighborhoods within the walls, or in their farms? Does the Martial community have to police the surrounding countryside to protect its farmers?

Indeed. Farmers' Market seems a bit fancy/tofu/latte/metro/coastal/elitist.

(If this were comics curmudgeon I'd make a comment about Pluggers.)

Note also the "defensive walls" around the "neighborhoods", but the lack of such protection for "power" and "water".

With all those weapons in a confined space they're also going to need a hospital and a mortuary.

I guess they use slaves for farming like other civilised people do - probably old liberals, at a guess.

What do the weapons have to do with it? Weapons don't kill people, people do.

Oh wait. They're going to have people as well....

It's a pity they've never heard of artillery.

There aren't enough brains in there to attract them anyway.
