Rayya's Children Issue

So I just started a Rayya’s Children game on Normal mode in the Desert biome.
Problem is, I didn’t take the Wooden Sword as a starting item, figuring my townsfolk could defend themselves.
At least, long enough to get a carpenter and make my own, and they’ve been doing fine.
But now 3 Goblin Thieves spawned, and they’re raiding my town 24/7.
If I put the town into Defense Mode, my Hearthlings just stand by the central flag and don’t fight them.
If I turn off Defense Mode, they just run around cowering and don’t fight them.
The Goblins have now taken half of my town’s storage and I have no way of stopping them.

Move the main town flag close to the stockpile, as that’s what the hearthlings gather around.

Also in the citizens menu (shortcut C). there is a tab at the bottom named groups. There you can assign militia, which will fight not only near the flag.


I am playing SH now for a little more than a year, but I’ve never realized that this groups tab exists. Thanks @BrunoSupremo :clap:
