YEAR 11-12

        16 nomads travel by.that many would use up our food and supplies.we will use the time to clear trees and rocks.the flax garden and workplace tailor balance well.clothing is not overproduced.the trade post uses the ores to bring in 500 eggs.by year 12,3 miners are sent to the precious mine.  slowly,the trade post adds clothing.

        for this map,i moved the FO ND mod above the RK.that has worked well. houses burn thatch without needing it to be bundled.it is a slight tweak but it will save the bannies from walking far to collect firewood.the bannies have the option of using thatch if it is closer.the foresters do clear a little thatch while planting trees.

       in spring of year 12,we decide to do some terraforming.the mountain along the lake will be flattened.a small hill to the east needs smoothed  to extend our road.  again 16 nomads travel thru.the nomad mod seems to give 2 or 3 large groups and then a smaller set.

       a pine mod lumber cutter will start to stockpile more building materials. a merchant finally brings us 500 oats.a cave in causes our 1st death. though the inconsistant nomad groups slow population growth,we do progress.

YEAR 13-14

         another cave in causes our 2nd death. we have 1 builder and 2 laborers.the lumber cutter stops work to help out.as expected a smaller group of nomads arrive.a couple with 2 children.we use the lumber to build a fodder hut.a tower will keep watch and hunt the meadow.

      we spend the following year clearing rocks and trees for the fodder tp grow. we will send a gatherer or 2.there are enough foxes and beavers that in time we will need to add a trapper.if the mine doesnt cave in, we will have more workers again.

YEAR 15-16

           since the apple orchard is planted,the forester moves to the fodder meadow.another forester is planting  the cherry orchard. laborers will have to cut logs. the tower will improve our leather and more clothes can be made and traded.as we take grain in trade,health should improve.

          12 new nomads arrive.a pair will help at the mines.2 more plant strawberries in the grain fields.another couple moves to the meadow.a trapper is added to the meadow.he will bring in eggs and game as well as furs and pelts.
        with the orchards planted,the 4th couple will need to start a forest zone.east of the lake will supply logs.while the builders are busy with the bridge,the laborers plow 4 more fields.we need vegetable and grain seeds.

     a merchant brought pumpkin seed and took all our trade goods.

YEAR 17-18

       with the new veggy fields,2 of the grain fields will not be planted. we send graduates all 4 veggy fields can be planted with pumpkins.
       we'll start a maple apple forest across the bridge.this will work to make the apple cider and maple whisky.it will take some time for the forester to clear the rocks and plant trees.

    once the forest houses are completed,we need to build more for the graduates.anothere worker is sent to help move items to the TP.a house will be built near the sawmill.then we will work to build logs and food reserves.

      the merchant had to wait for goods but we do gain rye seed.

YEAR 19

         we now have grain and all  9 fields will be planted.2 workers are stocking the trade post.we do need to increase logs and stone.since the iron ore only trades at 1 and we have over 100 gold ore,a foundry will be built near the mines.the tiny gatherer in the meadow doesn't produce much.it will be upgraded to a FO gatherer and work a larger area.pumpkins don't grow well so 1 veggy field will be planted with strawberries.the bannies planted 2 of the rye fields with strawberries.guess they didn't get word of the trade during the winter.construction goes slow with us short on stone.
