Narrator:
Seeing how little independent really income works, that would work better.

Eh... can you clarify?  I suspect even if the grammar came out clear answering "Yes" to a "are we doing X or Z" doesn't exactly work.

In reply to Jareth Mooncalled (msg # 164):

Convert all independent income points into base. The Vejovians can squat for the moment, although no one is coming to move in and obstruct you from getting the block and its environs. If one of you had enemy  as a disadvantage, that could happen. If Nodwin throws points into ally group, the Vejovians would start accruing base as well, but under your control.

I have been looking at this for suggestions

Works for me.  Done.  That brings me to 3 in Base.

Re: Living near the street collapse
OOC Good thing Nodwin has points laying around everywhere.  He'll just have to pop open the dresser and pull a few out from under the socks, where he has them stashed.

I hope Haveron never gets wind of this, he'd probably try to find a way to leverage this arrangement.

Sounds good boss.  Jokes aside, I think it's a worthy place for him to develop.  We'll have to discuss after the next run, however, because he spent all his points from the last run.  It was important to get Shape Earth for shoring up the living arrangement.

There is going to be a general increase in the amount of points going out from this point. I have been under-serving for the length of time people have been committed to.

I will earmark some of the points I receive for the ally group.  Sounds goo, and thank you.

Narrator:
Make an engineering roll to determine what you need, and then masonry to build it, which should take a few hours to do (building a brick or ashlar pilasterto support both the wall and ceiling. The space will need six of them, and that would be about 18 man hours to complete ( skilled laborers with 11 in masonry cost $30/day)

With Jareth acting as a Mason (defaulted skill 12), Nodwin with Shape Earth, and Benito with his actual skills, and then everyone else as 'unskilled' labor/lookouts, how long does this repairing the walls work take?  And how expensive?

And I think we still need Benito to make a roll.

And how much needs to be done elsewhere down here (in our neighborhood)?

Repeating from earlier... Narrator got sidetracked with the Base stuff.

With three of you, and use of the rubble spilling in, it takes just under four hours (reduced time for shape earth) and has an added cost in masonry that I need to go and check Lowtech 3 about;
Rubble is the building material, volume is   9'x2'x2' (36 cu feet)x6.... And 80% of tgat was freely available... Cost will be based on 43cubic feet.

In reply to Jareth Mooncalled (msg # 174):

Shit, did the math a

Nd lost it. Revised: 6 collumns x 9 feet tall x 1 foot wide, x 12" x 3.82 per 1'x1" of rubble and mortar is $2475, reducd to $371 due to materials  available.

I think the costs are a bit dear but younare getting two cuirrasses worth of work for the price of a helmet. Buying some beams for construction purposes would be cheaper than stone, but that can be dealt with later.

I have been loot shy, that will change, as Jocelyn has a lead on a sizeable quantity of silver, and the Ymid will pay something like $12k in gold.

OOC: still pays better than guarding some shop, standing in one spot for hours and barely enough for a night's flop and a couple meals.

Re: Living near the street collapse
OOC Let us know when we're ready to move on.  Really about doing some math and then everything should be stable enough for us to move on.  Plenty of threads so when you have time.  :)

Re: Living near the street collapse
"After buying the stuff for Ymid, totaling almost four and a half francs," he waves the list, which shows most of the items marked, "there are nine francs and seven bits."  He pulls a disappointingly small handful of coins out of his pouch.

He carefully places the coins in a small, mixed pile on a flat surface, and draws out another, much smaller handful.

"I've got a little eating money of my own, I could chip in about half if we have a plan that'll pay within a day or two."  He shows a pile of copper larger than the combined pile of house funds, with a single silver franc on top.  "I was planning to try to stretch this for a week if needed, but just the copper will get me through a couple days."

"So one-eighty seven left t'e house funds... I figure we each pile in say, mmm, carry one, ehh... twenty seven bits worth each it's covered."

Jareth starts counting out coins from his pouch to go into Mario's pile for the house funds.

"An don't worry Mario, ain' gonna let anyone in t'e group go hungry, not while got stewin bricks left."

Re: Living near the street collapse
Nodwin will produce 50 coppers to cover for Mario and anyone else who might need help.

"I'll cover you Mario.  Put your coins away.  In a pinch Vejovis will grant me food.  You do not have that same support.  I am happy to reward your work with some coin, so you may have a lavish meal instead of some bread and water."

With the collapse averted, you might be able to pay your engineer in a less immediate way.



See what the Ymid will do with that much of the items on its list.

Transferring a point would cover 5hat, as the engineer would then have to upgrade it into a workshop... as a wealthy person, younwould need 4 points of base to be suitable.

That will take some time. Something to work towards though.

Having just arrived, Benito is out of coin. However, he is earning some coin now, or earning something, he expects!
