I think Ultar can get me much more than just an extra noble. Good prices on everything he sells and everything he buys? Yes please.

Folks, you're welcome to move on to day 3, I'll have myself and events caught up tomorrow. I'm officially done with a semester of college as of ~30 minutes ago, so NS has me for a straight two weeks once I wake up in the morning.

My bad, I spent 90% of today napping, and the rest scheming for G's RP :p Events are around a quarter done, if you got one who know who you are, the rest will be done tomorrow. Ralnis, your hunt results are up first when I wake up.

Alright, my plan is to follow them around as they prospect for iron deposits, but we would need to find a way to sustain long-term mining operations by...three people. A (semi)permanent settlement is on order.

Long-term goals:
-Built a mud-brick house
-Build a plot on which to farm tubers
-Create an earthen bloomery

And to those ends, here are some short-term goals:
-Find flint for flint tools
-Create flint tools (axe, hoe, chisel, spade)
-Create flint weapons (3 spears)
-Find tubers
-Create mud-bricks (using mud and long grass)

Secondly, do we have some sort of "tech tree" on which to use expansion points?

I believe that our expansion points are far less linear. While we cannot simply go about inventing guns or teleporters or the like, I am under the impression that we can add anything from animal taming to glass working, with no set pattern on how it must be done. Just be reasonable and think of what would make sense for the possibilities presented by the setting.

And I figure learning the ability to create flint tools and mud-brick houses will need expansion points or nah?

Presumably so.

Though you should know Gregor’s next goal, after establishing a nascent source of income, is to begin a tool-making industry from copper. So you can just buy copper tools, probably just about the time your first set will begin wearing out.

We could tag team since I would think a hunting and adventuring lodge will be good for business. Especially for equipment and repairing.

It would, though just as G is planning on starting a copper tool industry, we'll be pumping out iron tools as soon as we have a smelter and smithy up in Aherrad - which honestly probably won't take all that long.

Gotta recruit that domestic labor as swiftly as possible - the secret is that the true currency of any frontier is neither gold, nor silver, nor skill. ‘Tis sweat.

It would, though just as G is planning on starting a copper tool industry, we'll be pumping out iron tools as soon as we have a smelter and smithy up in Aherrad - which honestly probably won't take all that long.

The smelter would need...60 blocks of cut stone and five starns of clay.
A furnace needs 30 blocks of cut stone or 90 mud-bricks.
The anvil will require 20 ingots of iron.

Hmm, I guess I made the right choice of trying to make flint chisels for the job. Can I use 1 Expansion Point for flint tools, or would this be not worth it?

You don't actually need a proper chisel to make cut stone - a pickaxe will do the job. I could be persuaded to arrange an increased work pace with a dedicated chisel, but flint probably wouldn't cut it.

I see. Though, I could start off with making flint hoe so I can get to working on a small plot of land that I can grow tubers on.
