YEAR 36

      since the frost hit us last fall,we deciede to expand our food production.we send a 2nd worker to the mill.1 chose to hunt ducks.another strawberry greenhouse is planned also.there are still mostly males,though there is 1 couple.a pine cabin and a FO storage will be built near the grape forest.an indian hut will be built along the north road in the village.
        the NMTers say they are building a playground and park for the kids to play.must be nice for them to have such time.they say that way the children won't get lost and stay safe.just before spring,we all take turns walking up to get our hair cuts.before we come back home,the potter hands us a bowl or dish.the villagers always comment about their nice huge houses.how do they have enough energy after working to climb all those stairs?

        a builder stops and the NMTers trade 40 marble for 110 lumber. they say they have plans for it.there is much excitement as the company merchant returns.everyone comes to see what seeds and animals he hauls.they aall have hopes he remembered their requests.his boat is quite heavey and crowded.he has cows and domestic animals and a variety of seeds.
3 cows, domestic animals,tomatoe and bean seeds in exchange for the 400 marble,150 leather coats,100 pelt coats,all the logs,and 200 mead.it is such a huge trade,the traders demand help to move everything. they are quite tired and wore out from hauling the heavey marble stones.our tailors take inventory and will restock the trading post over time.even with 3 tailors,they figure a couple years worth of pelts were traded.

       now we will be busy. a small pasture will hold the cows thru the winter and a larger pasture will be built then.the farmers begin to adjust their fields.a pepper field will change to tomatoes and a potato to beans.a rabbit pen and chicken coop will be added to Fernie's ranch in the south.they will need another cabin for workers too.construction continued thru the winter.
       
       the NMTers stopped processing iron. they had over 100 stored already.they began building an old dairy for us to process milk.they also cleared land for their own cemetary and continued working on thier stone roads.there was 600 marble hauled out of the quarry.

YEAR 37

       WOW,it got busy quick didn't it? there is still some fences to finish and some clean up to do. then we can start the large dairy pasture.we should add a barn and a house for the dairy worker as well. everyone so far has been good at pairing up except Doshiko and Landy,her husband. there are no females of age yet,so the newest house does have a single male. he just moved in and got settled.being so far from the school,it may be a while before he finds someone.

      the NMTers finished the dairy for us. i like this old dairy. it will process milk and the output is a variety.there will be an assortment of cheese,cream,and butter instead of just 1 product.they also build a caretaker to the transparent cemetary.since they stopped processing iron, they do have the extra worker.he says he'll plant blueberries around their twon and use them to make ale in the winter.it will keep the factory workers happy.
   
       a town meeting was quickly called when 20 newcomers arrived.the indian villagers didn't want them to stay.we were busy enough and had spent lots of resources helping the other groups.though the marble had been helpful to trade for the cows,there had been lots of food and logs used. it will take time for the cows to multiply and give back enough milk to compensate.plus the NMTers were having children so they were eating more food each year.
     the Bernies overrode the descision.the land to the west of the river was theirs to use afterall.these were friends and family memebers from Bernie mountain. they had tried to grow crops after the mine flood but nothing grew well.they had a very hungry winter. most of their livestock had been butchered so they could survive. there was a small patch of land not contanimated by the fooding,so a few stayed behind.there would not be enough food to support them all,however.
       2 families will build by the dairy.they will plant 2 more fields and tend to the cows.this will repay us for helping the Bernies.the rest will build west of the river.they are 4 families,a young couple,and 2 orphaned children who's parents had got sick and died during the last famine winter.the NMTers let them use the hostels to rest.

       while most helped with construction,1 took to trout fishing and another went to help the west gatherer.a 3rd hunted deer along the river.hopefully they can produce as much food as they eat.

       they did work fast. they had 2 houses and both fields cleared before we finished the pasture.some had built river houses along the west bank and began working the small forest across from our duck hunter.by winter they all had homes.the 2 orphans were adopted by the NMTers and remained in the hostels.together,they did manage to produce over half the food they needed.
     
        we had held off on building any houses for our young male villagers for the year.Landy did move back in with Doshiko. their oldest son kept the house near the south meadow and walked to school.what merchants did stop by were from a pine forest operation or carried clothing,nothing that we needed.

Tell me now, how did you manage to put this couple together? The other day, you were scared. Are they older and wiser and will stay with eachother, or split again? Maybe itīs one of these couple, I think most of us know, that canīt live together, but also not without eachother.  :-\

YEAR 38

     let me take a minute to explain the chain from Fernies ranch.water and fodder to stable gives fertilizer. fertilizer and water to corn greenhouse.corn to mill,corn flour to bakery.extra corn to the 2 animal pens.it does balance well. with 2 workers,the fodder runs out just in time for spring.the stable is still stocked and functions.i allowed the fodder to work several years to build stock and clear the stones and trees.then the fertilizer i let build up as well.it is over 1400 with 2 workers.there is almost 1400 corn in barns to stock the mill and feed the rabbits and chickens.i did hold the mill with 1 worker so the corn built up.there is more flour than the bakery uses also.i like having the reserve stocks as insurance.if there is a hiccup anywhere,it buys time to catch it.by now it feeds 2 greenhouses, corn and a squash.we have cornbread,pelts,and eggs.2400 food+100 pelts plus some reserves from 9 workers,not counting processing the corn.
   
       NECORA does have a cow,goat,and sheep pen for options.they do require domestic anmials to build and are fed corn.in keeping with his sherbrooke set,there are color options also.i do use 3 greenhouses.1 is CC and uses the bonemeal,KID's  bakery garden set that doesn't require fertilizer or water,and RED's garden utility that includes the fodder.each has a different purpose and function.they also give different outputs of crops and amounts.there are other parts to RED's and KID's sets that i haven't used in this map.

    our oldest is 78 now.we have several bannies in their 50's and 60's.there is a mixture of ages.we do still graduate more males and will for a few more years.
     the NMT engineer has dug a tunnel south of the fodder meadow.there is another mountain south of the clearing.to extend the meadow will mean working both sides of the river.the laborers will have to carry materials a ways and begin to clear for a road and a bridge.

    there is a plan to my madness.i try to keep some laborers in each area. each area will expand as it has graduates.at the moment the extra help is mostly in the village.sice we lack females for couples yet have extra workers,now is a good time to expand farther out. it will go faster with extra help and as the bannies pair up will push laborers out there later.
   
    the NMTers built a larger blacksmith to make rough tools for the quarry and clay workers.the more they do for themselves the less the villagers grumble.a 100 marble did get traded for barley and oats.still the merchants don't take enough marble for it to pay off.
    the NMTers designed an expansion to the trading post to help with the marble.they added cranes to help lift the marble making it easier on the traders.they also took time to help stock it with marble and pottery and some of their furnace fuel.the villagers were impressed with how much 1 worker could move using the crane.everyone wondered what those odd specialists would do next.
   
    once the corn dropped below 500,we dropped back to 1 worker at the mill.it had balanced better there.the bakery had enough flour to keep him busy.the poor Bernies keep finding too many onions.the spare mill worker is sent to make more soups for the winter.hopefully, they will not over use the firewood.
     even though we expand each year,our food production is close to break even.with a farmers stand added to the forest,everyone is fed a healthy diet.the 1st aid doctor continues to treat scrapes and cuts and twisted ankles but no diseases.now and then she takes time to train the bannies to work safer to avoid accidental deaths as well.

     the 2 orphan girls went to work the new meadow.they each wanted their own cabin.as such,our laborers remained living in the village.the girls are quite young,13 and 11. to ease the Bernies' concerns,a hunter will be sent to protect them in the spring.
      late in the winter,a protein merchant stops. using up 200 marble and bribing the merchant with some mead,we gain over 1800 meats including lobster.the peppers were sent back to the barns. the villagers are happy to see the gains.

YEAR 39

        the NMTers have been busy. they plowed a field and built a new factory.they have a root cellar now for storage.the library has been busy lately. the children love to go through books and look at the pictures.they are amazed at seeing far away places and cities.each of the specialists takes time to tell a different sory now and then.the barber has cut hair on 2 continents.the archeologist tells of lost cities and cultures.the dentist has worked on people and animals.we do think he fibs when he says he pulled a tooth from a bear.the potter tells of making bowls and cups with metal. he claims he made a gold flower pot for a queen even.the geologist says there are statues made from the marble in far away towns.some of lions and horses.many to honor warriors or important people.they can tell stories in the winter as long as they are busy in when spring comes.

        the Bernies have worked hard to expand their storage as well.special covered piles for thatch and a barn for the cotton.the foresters made adjustments. the grapes are doing well enough they sent 1 to help plant apple and maple trees.

       we send our builders to construct a lookout tower for the orphans.the workers will widen the road and help clear some rocks.a new butcher in the village will cut the ducks into roasts. the hunter didn't want to move in with the orphans. he took a different wife, and we built them a cabin.the Bernies with the engineer built a farmyard shop so they can make cloth from the cotton and ropes from reeds.they wait for approval before they will make root beer.
     
      we decide to expand the greenhouses.another corn greenhouse will go behind the rabbit and chicken pens.the NMTers have a spring to access to fill a water tower.the Bernies are busy building a plantation  house since they have a 16yr old female.

    Doshiko's mother passed away.something to do with her heart according to our doctor.she was in her 50's.her husband and younger child  moved with Nickie and her son.the older daugher kept the house she finished school and her husband worked at the drying shed.funny how things go in circles. rememeber Doshiko 1st got pregnant working there.


pic 1: root cellar and ketchup factory

pic 2: Bernies storage.the construction pile will store thatch,it was extended with a general storage to store stone and logs.the crate piles come with or without a roof.they also have options to what is stored.the pine market holds a lot for its size. the vendors move between the  markets keeping items moving so there is always available space for the workers.
 
pic 3:meadow lookuot tower.note  covered lean to storage near the cabin. to run the fodder field takes multilple storages.
1 is RED's misc to store fodder.while being cleared and planted the pine storage is used to store thatch,stone,and logs.the general lean-to will store food and textiles from the bannies finding left over traps or beaver lodges.

YEAR 40

      the Bernies plowed a field for peppers and built another plantation house.our trading post was expanded again. a storage barn was added and a new house for the workers.a tannery was planned to use the extra leather and salt.the NMTers were busy building an EB wharehouse to move and store more materials.when any laborers had time,they would clear rocks from the forests.
      Milliss passed away in her sleep. she was the wife of our oldest member.they lived in the wigwam in the thatch meadow. while he trapped, she was always with him hathering berries and roots.we wonder how long he will survive without her.we also lost one of the young mothers to be during child birth.
      by fall the Bernies were able to start making rootbeer at the Pilgrim's rest.our food outputs had improved to 2000 more than being used.all 3 of the fodder greenhouses were over 1000 each.KID's bakery greenhouses maintained at almost 500.

YEAR 41

      to expand the indian village, we need to work east.the laborers begin clearing a road by the dairy. a bridge will be needed to cross the stream.this will give us lots of land north of the thatch meadow.since we do have some females graduating this year we will add 2 huts in the village.

     we want a mixed forest south of the maple-apple. chesnuts,walnuts,and apples.with a gathering hut centered he will be able to work all of it.we have  one gathering hut working pears and grapes already.the foresters sent 2 workers to gather to see how well 2 will collect.they left 2 foresters working,1 planting grapes and the other the maple and apples.it is a long ways to travel and storage and a road will be needed.over time we will build houses and add a hunter.
it is a project and will be done over several years.each set of trees will have to be planted in stages.

      i should point out a couple things.the EB wharehouse did not move fertilizer. it did move other materials and gave the small markets enough space that it started to move and stock fertilizer.this will help the NMTers squash greenhouse.
there isn't a market to move the misc items only.under my gear icon,i do have a priority tool.i can use this to send laborers and builders to spot B or C even though they might be busy building or spot A.while the foresters and storage is being built,i can use this tool to call them back if something else is needed such as the bridge across the stream.a tool that can be handy when nomads arrive and everyone is busy. i think this is a CC tool, not universal to all games.

       th seed merchant brings a couple seeds.he really doesn't have many.sweet corn and sugar beets.he had mushroom and bean seeds that we didn't need.he does take 590 marble.the villagers have a requests,mostly for fruit.he says he will try to get back early next year. they do hope he would before spring planting.our village is on the edge of an industrial region.there is more demand for other materials and food than seeds or livestock.hence the food merchants have no need to travel this far,all the food they carry is bought up river.he is headed downriver hoping to locate more farm communities.
       a bakery supplier did make it down river.he had many goodies.we took all his oats and cheese bread and 1500 rye. for 500 marble,we gain 4500 food.plus the traders would send the 1000 potatoes back to our barns.
     
       after the merchants left,we began to clear fields for the new seeds.the builders were already working on storage an a duck blind across the new bridge.the Bernies are busy building their own school.the NMTers used the spring to build a bathhouse.they said it gave the factories a warm relaxeing baths for their tired backs.the new tailor company would use the cloth,cured leather,and feathers.now they were making their own tools and clothing.

     before spring,the planter did make it back. he filled some of the requests. carrot,watermelon,and tobaco seeds. he takes 1000 marble from us and some furnace fuel.the fuel he says he will trade for supplies up north before heading out to bigger cities. our laborers will be busy in spring clearing and plowing fields.

YEAR 42

      since the extra gatherer didn't collect much more pears or grapes,he is sent to start planting the mixed forest.he will start with chesnuts for about 5 years.hopefully by then the laborers will have time to clear the road.
        according to the math,we are break even on houses.the family count says we are 2 short.as there is a farmer and duck hunter across the stone bridge,we will add 2 houses and another field.as the laborer count goes above 10,we will add more there this year.
   
       we double our firewood limit.the coat and tool limits were increased to 500.since we used up so much marble both trade posts are set down to 500 each.food is already set to 50,000 and luxuries to 2000.extra clothes and rootbeer will keep the traders busy moving goods.

       mid-spring brings an interesting development. an industrial merhcnat brings 24 nomads to us.they don't want to mine and are better suited to farming and hunting.with the new seeds,we can put some to work quickly and a few can hunt and trap the mixed forest.a meeting is called to discuss it.assuming their is half as children,gives 12 workers. so 6-10 houses 2 are planned across the stone bridge and the NMTers have 2 large hostels.though we will need 4 fields just to feed them,2 are being cleared already.the potter says he'd like an apprentice.the quarry would like help.a third to the north,a 3rd to the east,and the rest split between the forest and south meadows.everyone is happy to have more help.

      6 familes and 2 young workers with 11 children.the NMTers will start on 2 houses.the young male moved to the south meadow with the orphan girl.4 remain homeless after others moved in the hostels.by the time they got settled it was to late to plant this year.1 did start hunting near the NMT cemetary.

       the baker brings us rice,oats,and donuts.he takes most of our mead and extra clothes.

        snow comes early but 4 houses are built so everyone is warm.1 hostel is almost empty even.with the trade,2 rice paddys are built on the lake shore.next spring, there will be enough fields for all our food seeds.with everyone working hard,we broke even on food.considering the 24 nomads,that was an accomplishment.

YEAR 43

      soon as the spring rains stop,work begins on a dock house for the rice workers. then 2 cabins are built in the mix forest and a hunters hut.there are several barns to be finished and roads to clear.

        once the construction in the forest was completed,there were many requests from Fernies ranch.for now an apiary and florist would be built.another hut and teepee are needed to the east fields.most of the laborers continue work on the forest road.
     
       the bakery merchant has been reliable and stops once a year.he brings corn,wild oats,and sugar cookies for marble and some pottery.a protien merchant trades us 1650 mixed meats for 150 marble.

        we produce 3000 more food than we eat.1 young couple remains in the hostel.we have 10 workers that need a workplace.

YEAR 44

      we are using tools faster.a blacksmith and shed from KID's workplace mod will be built beside a Bernie plantation house.these are nice quick workplaces and very handy.we do need more of these style places.
       once the new houses are built to the east,a farmer can plant the tobacco field.one 15 year old couple moves in while 1 is still a student.we wont need more houses unless i bump into an older female somewheres.next step is to figure out where the extra laborers are living.i still try to keep 2 in each area.the main village is getting older and will need to replace some workers.
     there is a cluster of laborers between the forest and the village school.1 will work on a potato field. between the soup and bannies,the potatoes have been ate up.all markets wil be enabled.up til now the vendors have switched markets during the year to keep them stocked we send 1 to plant walnut trees.otherwise,there is land to clear and roads to be ran yet.

      the baker stops twice this year. we take 2000 wheat both times.at least someone is hauling our marble for us.finally a livestock merchant brings beef cows.it is already snowing. good thing we have the holding pen to keep them through winter.
   
     the NMTers had a stone cutter die.he had arrived with the last set of nomads.they built a house for the 15yr old who replaced him.they have also constructed another factory,a sugar refinery for the sugar beets.our oldest is now 85 and still trapping rabbits and foxes from the thatch meadow.
