Year 3

Roll: 3, Rough

The foundational damage from the previous year has continued to spread and new cracks are forming around the base. The tower will need heavy repairs soon and will collapse if not taken care of.

Year 4

Roll: 5, Awful

Roll: 1, Ice Storm - 3

The antenna has bent due to the weight of the ice and has been slowed in sending messages by approximately 1 minute for each message.  

Total Damage: 10/12

Year 5

Roll: 5, Awful

Roll: 6, Meteor -6 

Structure Notes: 

Due to lack of financing by the government, the tower has been completely exposed to the yearly meteor shower and has sustained fatal damage. The tower will fall within the next year. 

Total Damage: 16/12

The Fall

Roll: 4, Shattered by extreme weather

Structure Notes: 

The light drizzle of the spring has caused the tower to completely collapse. This happened sometime during the night, in which the locals took the opportunity to loot whatever valuable metals were in the antenna and any remaining salvageable furniture that was still inside. 

Teneneron Semaphore Tower 26A is completely unfit for repair and should be further demolished for public safety.
