5.Quest (by doing quest you get need buildings items and resources its a god way of getting silver.)
6.Diplomatic phase: in the comments you can offer and trade or buying from colonist or the outpost. or just make a deal or anything you want.
the back bone in every colony. every week you can move your workers around. workers can only do one job a week. workers cant do quests alone.
most workers is eating one food a week. more advance buildings need 2 food.
the player is and better worker you don't eat food and you can do quests.

how to get workers.
its two ways. silver is a rare resource you can get it in mining you need a silver mine or in questing and trade.
you need 5 silver to hire one worker the next one is 10 and 15 and so on.

by Delegation to the @darklands you can get workers to and a bigger up vote and more of them.
10 sp 1 workers
20 sp 2 workers
40 sp 3 workers
80 sp 4 workers
160 sp 5 workers
340 sp 6 workers

how much resources make my workers.
lumberjack and miner has a 1-6 dice (the game doing it) +-Modifiers
Forager has a 1-4 (the game doing it) +-Modifiers
special buildings make a stable amount
NB: you need a silver mine to get silver.

your first 3 weeks.
wood is the most important in the beginning.
Recommend and hire a lumberjack from the silver you are starting with.
and put him to work. you have 3 weeks of food in the colony so u don't need to worry immediately.
The player. starting quest or Build the fireplace/bed.
normally you will find some food and some weapons on the Discovered the immediate area (easy) so this is good to start with. also this will unlock the specialty of your colonye. and maby its better to mine stone and selling it to get more wood faster. the outpost is always trades resources.
all colonists has +- Modifiers on their wood ,stone and a food specialty.
its two ways to do questing either playable or passive
passive the game is doing all the work. on playable you a quest on the quest post
on Wednesday.
easy quest (passive no combat)
medium (playable or passive) Recommend to have some armor and weapons.
hard (don't go alone u need good items)
Only real rule in the game is participation.

If u have a question it's helpful to make a separate comments marking it with OOC (out if character)

Range attack working exactly the same as and normal attack using the D20
throwing Range weapons has a max range of 3 square. like the spear and javelin. Bows-Crossbows are unlimited. "line of sight" .
Example You must draw a line from the center of your square to the center of the square your attacking. If it crosses over any walls you can not attack.
Recover throwing weapons take one action
Example action one u throw your spear, action two u recover it the last action u stabbing the enemy with it. turn over. (by recover your spear u will move to where your spear is and if its hit and enemy u are now in melee distance to the enemy.

Charge attack you can Charge up to 3 square and do a melee attack. You get a +2 on the attack

  • Green and dark green can do a Charge attack this will put them in the same square as the "Red enemy"
  • Blue and turquoise can not do a Charge attack blue is in the same square and turquoise is 4 square away.
    Example you have used you javelin from 3 square range. you take you stone club and ruining at the enemy. your base 5, +4 weapon (+2 charge attack) now on your d20 its a hit 1-11 next action dropping down to 1-9

walls are around 8-10 ft tall
if and enemy is standing in the same squares or next to the wall he is cower. out of sight rule is Applying to see him you need to be max 3 squares max away.
if he is out side this distance you can see him. if you are next to the wall on the inside.

Sneak attack. by performing and Sneak attack u can do this attack only one Time in a quest
U need to do a Sneak roll. using the D6 dice. and success roll is set to 1-3.4-6 is a miss. if success u get a +10 on your first Attack.
Example you are sinking on to and enemy u roll the d6 u get a 2 now you can add +10 on your first attack working wit all weapons but Only working on your first turn special condition may apply its always going informed to you in the quest post.

hide you can move to a location out of sight of the enemy's (forest,darkness, behind house, mountains etc.) and roll a @ rollthedice if you get same value as and Sneak attack 1-3 (or special number depend it on the quest) Then you are hidden you next attack has and +5 to hit.

shield attack the shield has a knock back skill. D20 dice. if you are in the same square
as and enemy u can do a shield attack on success the enemy will be moved two square back, allowing you to be in Charge attack range on your next attack. its only working same size enemy's not on a ogre etc. its also do 2 damage.

magic spells
you need a wizard tower in your colony to activate the option to use magic

  • normal one spell take one Acton to do. if not it will be in your colony file

  • Touche spells you need to be in the same square or next square to and enemy to activate it.
    see in your colony file if the spell require and dice. normal passive spells dont need a dice. damage spells do. on a dice add your staff has and base value of +5.

  • Range spells working the same way as a normal range attack using the "line of sight" rule.
    the activate is the same as and Touche spell.

  • On a quest you can only have three spells whit you they are in your wizard staff.
    u can bring and wizard worker whit you and he can have his one staff whit three spells also.

Hit points all players has a 4 hit points
if you get hit down to 0 you are out of the quest. next week your character get a -3 on hit if you are going to a quest and u get a -50% on production and u dont get any loot on the quest.

Armor when u get hit your armor is socking up the damage when its gone you are losing hit points

Can you recover hit points and armor?
yes you can. by using health potions or magic spells. you can give a health potions to any coloinst it take one turn to do so, you need to be next to the colonists when you do so. the Basic health potions will immediately give him/you 4 hp. magic spells give back armor and hp (see how the spells work to do it.) big health potions Also do this.

workers/unit players can take one worker whit them on a quest.
the unit can have the same Equipment as the player.
if the worker getting killed you need to rehire and new one the next week.

-you have two weapon slots
-if you using a shield its take one weapon slots. it cant be used whit a bow or crossbow.

Very interesting and fun RPG game reminiscent of Dungeons and Dragons meets the computer game Civilization! I have been playing since the beginning and really enjoy it! The upvotes are a nice added bonus as well. :) I highly recommend this game.

Thanks much appreciated

-Armor is a 5 set. boots,legings, chest and helmet.

What do you mean by a 5 set? That the set provides a total of 5 damage protection, or that there are 5 pieces to the set?

Boots - 2 pieces
Leggings - 2 pieces (or 1 like an apron or skirt)
Chest armor - 1 piece
Helmet - 1 piece

no its a mistake. ty for spotting it a have fixed it now.

Ah... the 5 was just inserted by accident and copy-pasted, because I saw that before but didn't question it before. Now that I saw it again, I thought I best ask. Thanks for clearing that up.

jepp am just wondering how am calulating this to 5 anyway…:D
