Mr Red and Mr Eb  ;D yes, Tom Sawyers Hunting & Gathering tool places a bow and arrow symbol on the ground near herd and laborer goes there and hunts. Very handy at start of game before hunting lodge is built and especially good for Adam & Eve start.  Hunting Season increases the size of herds and longevity, also increases the harvest amount or frequency I believe.

Chapter 2


  We were impressed by the wonderful berries and other wild foods our gatherer collected, some we never had before.  Our foresters were also busy collecting fodder and flowers and several kinds of ore as well as logs.  We would add more foresters as soon as we were able to.  The deadwood that was collected took care of our firewood needs but we were often short of logs and we needed lumber to build a tailor.  We would need hide coats soon, and thanks to our hunter we had a supply of leather in the storage barn.

  By spring of year 3 we laid the foundation for a blacksmith.  It would take more iron ore to make tools but at least we would not have to process it into iron first.  We also planned to build a woodcutter, even though the lumber mill could be used to cut firewood if need be.  We wanted our town to prosper and grow, we would need to learn to make other building materials besides lumber.  We needed more logs and more workers.

  We were very happy to welcome 13 nomads that spring.  They came from the southwest where it was still very hot and dry.  It was warm here in Red Rock but we did often have a refreshing light rain and we had plenty of shade trees, we hated to cut them down.  The families agreed to stay here with us and we agreed to build more houses.  We also built a safe place by the school for the children to play, and a cemetery.

  By early autumn Red Rock had a population of 41, 23 adults, 16 young children, and 2 students in our school.  Five new houses were being built.

i think those longer menu lists for the forest buildings will be helpful.

Chapter 3


  Besides the need for the new houses, we also needed more storage facilities. All these building projects needed a lot more logs.  We did not want to cut too many of our shade trees close to town so cutting trees and transporting logs took longer than we had hoped. We found an area just west of town in a small valley that would make an ideal spot for a second forester.  Problem was there were bears that were often seen there in the small clearing.

  There were also buffalo and elk in the area.  These animals must have come down from the mountains in the north and from the prairie  in the west to escape the cold and the floods.  Perhaps the Animal Refuge had rescued and later released these animals back into the wild.  We did not want to overhunt any of these animals and we did not want to collect all the goose eggs either but they were so good for breakfast with a bowlful of wild berries.

  Our variety and quantity of food was good but we had no grain.  Our health was suffering.  By early spring of year 5 we built an herbalist and hoped our overall health would improve.  We considered building a trading post but we were still constructing more storage units and as always we were short of logs.  We also needed more houses for the 4 nomads who arrived and were willing to stay.  Two of them would work in the new forester station that was just completed.  By late autumn a trading post for seed & stock was constructed.  By then we had several different sized barns.  It was difficult to know what we had a surplus of to trade.  We needed a town hall in which to keep inventory records.

Chapter 4


  A building for town records would need a lot of light, and those records would need protection from the elements.  A town hall would need glass windows.  Glass was made from sand, well we sure had a lot of that around here.  Hopefully we had someone who knew how to make it into glass.  It just so happened that one of the 5 nomads who arrived in Spring of year 6 knew how to make glass and knew how much sand would be needed.  We dug a sand pit according to his specifications. 

By the time Warnet, the seed merchant arrived, the sand quarry was completed and a stone quarry was begun.  Warnet only had banana seeds which we did not want but we did learn the trade value of the items we already had at the trading post.  Our leather was worth 12 and the silver ore we found was worth 11 trade units.

  By spring of year 7 the quarry was complete and so was a glass maker workshop.  We had no coal and were concerned we would have to use more of our firewood.  Our supply was usually low because we were always short of logs.  We would need to be sure to collect plenty of deadwood so we would not be short of firewood too. 

 In Spring of year 8, 6 more nomads arrived and we again welcomed more workers and built more houses.  We need the workers for our newly constructed clay pit and kiln.  Our wet red sand on this side of the small creek would make good roof tiles and red bricks, only problem was we needed more firewood.  We did have enough lumber and glass to begin construction of the town hall.  Our glass maker was now making glassware. Our blacksmith was making iron out of iron ore.  He could return to making tools when the building materials were delivered to the town hall site.

  It was good to have a place for our town records and for town meetings although up until now the others have been leaving decision making up to Wavery and myself.  Maybe because we had more time, we only had 2 children.  Red Rock's population was now 71, 39 adults, 14 students, and 18 young children.  Our education rate was 33%.  We needed more housing for new families and our health was still down.

Chapter 5


  In spring of year 9, 7 nomads arrived.  We needed more workers.  We built a 3rd forester, we were always short of logs.  We also built a 2nd gatherer hut and hunting cabin, and more houses.  By autumn our food supply was quite a bit lower than it had been.  We just could not seem to get ahead.

  The seed merchant arrived but only had lemon seeds, we ordered wheat seeds and cleared a 10x12 field.  We hoped the wheat seeds would arrive by spring.  Riverboats have been few and far between and mostly they have been livestock merchants who came from Animal Refuge.  There were not many suppliers upriver from here.  The Refuge usually took what merchandise the riverboat men had in exchange for livestock.  That made this a good location for a supply of stone to Riverboat Junction, the riverboats had plenty of room by the time they got here.  That fact didn't help us much but hopefully we would have enough stone to trade for special orders.

  By winter we were low on firewood, the lumber mill was helping out but we were still short of logs.  The labors began cutting more trees as well as gathering more wild foods.  Lenn, the laborer, died of a weak heart.  It had not been a good year.

  The river boatman returned in spring of year 10 with the wheat seeds we ordered.  It was too late to plant the seeds, peas were already planted in that cleared field.  The boatman said if we build another trading post it may lure other river boatman here.  Also if we made perfume out of all our flowers we would get a much better trade value for them, 6 units instead of only 1 for the flowers.  So we began construction another trading post and a perfumery nearby.  Much to our dismay we realized we needed a foundry to turn our copper ore into usable copper.  This would take awhile. 

  In the meantime we built another school.  Being busy with building projects and wood and material shortages we miss the fact that our school was filled to capacity.  Some children missed getting an education.  The wheat was planted in Spring of year 11 and the foundry, trading post, and perfumery were completed.  We had glassware but needed water to make the perfume.  We built a watertower nearby and a fishing pier.

  Our hard working laborers were so busy hauling heavy building materials and ores that we neglected to gather wild foods.  Our food supply was quite low, as was our supply of tools.  The foundry began making iron and a 2nd blacksmith was built nearby.  Of course we were still short of logs.  Laborers were sent to help the foresters cut more trees.  Hopefully we were in time to avoid a tool crisis.  We were all exhausted by this time.

 :D yes, I do like the ground texture color, it has a nice warm autumn tone to it.  :)  And speaking of autumn, it looks really good when fodder and flowers are changing colors in autumn too.  :)

sorry, I guess that wasn't too clear  :)  I think your fodder and flowers would look great on whatever ground texture they are put on  :)
