Dude, in reality farmers have to work the whole year for one harvest as well!

I know, but just want to be sure, otherwise you could let your entire work force harvest food in the summer and fall and do something else in the winter and spring.

No, you do not need to allocate any labor to build structures. Mostly because it'd be sort of annoying to have to pull people from other jobs for 1 season just to put them back again.

And yes, farming requires year long attention. You need to have labor on it for an entire year in order to get the food. For the first turn, you'll collect food even though it hasn't been a year when the season comes, but you need that labor to stay there in order to tend to the fields.

Also just a note guys, you only need to repost your assignment of labor if you change the allocation. If nothing changes for a labor force for a certain resource, there is no need to post it in your turn.

Chaotica: I'll be sure to note that your people live in caves next time!

Yes, you can contract mainland tribes. I originally thought about using boats to reach your island, and I may impliment it later, but for now just assume that you can build some small boats to send small parties of emissaries over.

Also note Kjell, since no one is inhabiting Irirann Foothills, you may trade with the Tusks and the Chipped Hills. You can still approach the other territories with diplomatic relations, but you can not trade with them, unless they are your allies or vassal.

I'm unsure: is it fall now or is it winter? 'Cause I was kinda counting on another season of foraging before winter comes...

Can I have my people drink alcohol? They don't really have cups or something yet in the game, but I like the idea of my guys drinking ale or mead to drive off the cold.

The current season (the one I just posted) is Fall. Next turn will be winter.

And if you want your people to drink alcohol that is fine, there just is no impact on the game other than for lore purposes.

hmm, it could be that I am wrong, but I think I am missing around 700 stone as resources. Could it be you just overlooked the 50 people I put into stone working?

Thanks.

As you have just allocated labor to stone this past turn, you will not get any return on it until next turn (winter). So look for your 700 stone next season. I recently clarified and standardized my method of getting resources and such in order to prevent the abuse of some labor issues that may have come up. The update is on the turns post.

That's really nice to hear! It encourages me to update the turns and not go to bed earlier!

I'm going to be forcefully progressing the game along a little bit so watch out for some interesting developments. Also, be sure to command some of your people to explore your territory! You never know what you might find!

just another small question:

In wich season you need to assign your people for a good harvest that year? In the Summer? Winter? or possibly Spring? (and of course, one season earlier for maize)

You have to give things some time Bryndon.

I remember that you did and don't worry, you have found something.

Assign it in the season that it is harvested. You must have labor on it for a year before you haverst the food.

So if you want to allocate labor to wheat, do it in the fall and the next year you will be able to harvest it.

If you allocate labor in any other season you won't make it in time for the next year.
