Taxes are collected more to prepare for poorer seasons, usually collecting things of value or coin for if harvests go bad and they need to buy food from elsewhere.
The Feroian Province requires a yearly tithe form of tax, which has been coming in the form of beef, grains, and lumber.
Ever since the Daggermark Ravine was bridged, trade routes along Old Road have been put back into use, allowing for the town to grow in size.
When the town came under the protection of Ferish the Half-Orc, the people had met her and thought she was a simple brute until she arranged for the town to be protected by those who would serve in her warband. These warband soldiers work in their off hours in the town as farm hands, assistants, heavy lifters, and loggers alongside the locals, making them more welcome additions to the community, even if they live at the camp.
Industry & Trade
The main export for Oakenfield is lumber, and now with the bridge bringing the Old Road back in use (renamed the Orc Road by some who speak under their breath), merchants from Tormyra now have a more direct route into Theydim instead of [middle of Theydim town name here].
The town does not flaunt much wealth, though it does have wood carvings of value.
Guilds and Factions
In Oakenfield, there is a general agreement that the three main sources of income and survival help each other, or else they all fall apart. The loggers clear out the woods for the farmers and provide wood for the merchants to use in their own trades. The farmers grow and provide most of the food found in the town, feeding the people. The merchants (shop keepers, traders, blacksmiths, etc) are the ones who sell things and bring in business from outside of town.
From the citadel, occupied by Goblins, an apple would be brought up. The apple was of magic, able to cure all ailments. There were rumors of an apple capable of being the ultimate poison, incurable at all. In attempts to grow their own curing apples, the people of Oakenfield had taken to planting the seeds, only for the saplings to be stolen away, presumably by the goblins wanting to maintain a monopoly.
The town shrank in size, but survived until thirty years ago, a band of adventurers came into town. The General Store Owner, Kerowyn had gone to Feroian Keep to seek help in rescuing her two children from their foolish attempt at joining the adventurers who had gone into the citadel with another party.
Only this small party accepted, the two dwarves seeking to make the citadel their new home, a half-elf who sought adventure and some glory, and a half orc who saw those in power refuse to help a simple request.
The children were returned, unfortunately they had perished before the party found them, with a tale of an evil druid who used the dead as his puppets. The Dwarves made their home in the citadel, the Half-Elf returned to the Keep, and the Half-Orc went on adventuring until she returned to place regions under her control as the nobility had failed the locals.
She ordered the bridge to be rebuilt.
The rebuilding is very recent, and it appears to be less well built, and more built to house the sudden increase of new inhabitants. The houses outside of the wooden wall seem to be damaged.
The lake to the north-east provides for fertile farming land for growing crops.
