I'm figuring Johann's Day 1 actions would be venturing out into the Aherrad Plains with Kaye and Nakhu.

Aye, I assumed such. We're 16 hours into a 36 hour trek.

Hopefully we can actually manage that price, because I most certainly did not do the math. It sounded reasonable, though. :p

The math works out from my end, but not knowing your end... eh, even if you fall through, at least I can sell the timber!

We can manage the price. I still have my five nobles, you each have one noble, making seven. Then with your wages from yesterday we already have a combined 9 copper nobles and eight copper knaves, and that's after one day of work. I haven't done the calculations on how much a fishing trap should cost, but you got us a reasonable price. Well done, for a fisherman.

Yeah I gave y’all a good deal since I figure it’s something to do. No spoilers, but timber is about to become very expensive.

Well, assuming our expedition down to LEV doesn’t go poorly and get devoured by something, the deal will certainly be worth your while.

We'll need a furnace eventually for the distillation, but you have a pickaxe, no? We'll see if we can't pay you for the stone and then it's light blue city for us all.

My plans mainly revolve around whether tools wear out - if they do, establishing a copper smelting industry is extremely important. If not, silver is the road forward, or gems.

Well, the prostitution mechanics are finally getting a workout.

Ooh, gems!

You could be a jeweller! Sell ladies of the Empire the fantasy of this exotic new world, filled with magic and possibility. You could go the snake oil route and sell necklaces and rings with gems that will reveal one's future husband if only they stare hard enough into them. Nothing wrong with a little marketing to inflate prices.

Here's what I am thinking of doing at day three when we get to the Aherrad Plains and start mining:
Day 3
  • 0000-0400H: Travelling to Aherrad Plains (36/36)
  • 0400H-1600H: Looking for tubers (1 bushel)
  • 1600H-1800H: Looking for Long Grass (x2)
  • 1800H-Next Dawn: Sleep (6h)

Yes, I am going to sleep for just six hours. A small price to pay for future endeavours, so to say.

Any word as to how many mud-bricks I need to make a simple mud-brick house?
Palmyrion is here to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And he's out of bubblegum.

Well your average adult (but Johann is something of a young adult lmao) can function in the range of 6-8 hours of sleep, so 2 hours short is probably going to be a tiny penalty to pay for long-run endeavours.

Secondly, it hasn't been one IC week since we started - we're at Day 2, IC-wise. Also the fact that one can already make mud-bricks means one can make a mud-brick house. Thirdly, one can make a bloomery with some leather, mud, and long grass, and get on with smelting iron from ore; the (earthen) bloomery is literally the first iron smelter mankind ever made.

Fourth: what do I need to gather to make a simple A-frame lean-to shelter?

Perhaps, perhaps. I suppose we’ll see.

Everyone starts with one Expansion Point - and that’s what the Mud Bricks are for right now, smelters and things, not homes. Unless I missed something, currently the only home that can be constructed is the Stockade.

Everyone starts with 2 expansion points, actually. In regards to everything else, my computer is out of commission for the next ~2-3 hours rendering a video, so expect more responses and potentially a day advancement after that.
