    Default StratEdgy: Build a Village

    Edgy strategy game time. We build a village gradually, one addition at a time. Some rules:

    • One suggestion per player between each update
    • I am the GM, I rule on all factors of the world not related to the control of your village
    • Mechanics are exploratory and emergent
    • Format suggestions in bold and preface with ">"
    • Format in-game questions in bold and preface with "*"
    • Format meta discussion normally
    • Suggestions will be chosen over others with decreasing prioritization of: player consensus, GM preference, order of posting.





    You currently have

    +1 Villager
    +1 Rickety Shack

    *To the immediate Northwest there is a small River, beyond that a Forest.
    *To the immediate East are several Trees.
    *The closest village is a Prosperous Fishing Village to the South

    !!There are wild boar in the Forest but without some kind of Enclosure you will only be able to obtain Game Meat

    !!Currently you have access to farmtools and tools required for gathering Raw Materials. Your only Weapon is a Hunting Spear, which will allow you to obtain Game Meat but will be less effectual in combat. More sophisticated Weapons will empower you in combat and grant higher yeilds when hunting.

    -You fell the tree closest to you and yeild +Low-Quality Wood. You earn +1Woodcutting Experience. Wood materials you gather in the future will be of higher quality.

    Guys seriously feel free to discuss the relative merits of these suggestions. Else I've got little to go on when they conflict. :B.

    My main motivation for wheat is that wheat = bread and bread = sandwiches, but I am cool with maize if it's a better option overall, I really don't know anything about farming.

    I'm rooting for a pungi ditch because it'll keep out bigger things, and possibly serve as a trap should you chase a beast into it. Also because a ditch full of spikes is metal as hell.

    They're both more or less interchangeable in terms of their role in the diet. Wheat is slightly more versatile but Maize gives us a cool exotic flavor to the setting.



    -You plant two rows of Wheat and two rows of Maize. You now have a comfortable excess of Food.

    !!Excess food means you can safely accommodate more Villagers. Alternatively it can be stored in a Warehouse for Trade with other Villages.

    !!Building a trap trench is a good idea but this doing as you described this early in the game it may prevent vital expansion later on

    when in doubt, grow more maize. GROW MORE AND DONT STOP GROWING. Amaizeing results

    *when you say you yielded low-quality wood, what physical quantity of wood did we obtain, as in how much do we have to use?

    Could you tell us the type of weather/temperature the region usually experiences? That would help with planning on what to actually build.

    We can't trade with other villages without leaving our home completely unattended, we'll need some more people.
