Landmarks

Landmarks and Downtimes

Landmarks are the most notable and important buildings and other features of a Settlement.  Once constructed and staffed by the appropriate members of the local Population, Landmarks provide specific benefits to the area and its people.  

Downtime Actions  

Characters who are Well Fed during an Event by consuming 3 Vegetables, 1 Meat item, or an appropriate cooked meal are healthy and thriving enough to take a Downtime Action between Events.
 
Downtime Actions allow characters to continue to make progress on their long-term goals, gain special advantages during Events, recover from setbacks, or accumulate power in other ways.  Downtime Actions usually take place at specific locations, and new locations allow new types of Downtime Actions to be taken.
 
Each Landmark lists the type of Downtime Action it allows, if any.  In some cases, a character may need to meet a prerequisite in order to make use of it, such as a specific Skill, or being part of a specific Culture.  

Key Landmarks and Settlements

Key Landmarks are the basis for a new Settlement somewhere new in the Theater.  They form the center around which the community is constructed, and play a large role in the way it develops. Key Landmarks typically have many upgrades and add-ons available to improve them over time.  However, new Settlements out in the frontiers of civilization, beyond the reach of authorities and tradition always attract Darkness to them.  

Hunting Village

1 Labor, Forest – Peasants – Commerce : Darkness

Hunting Villages are constructed in Forest Areas and center around the production of Hide Bundles, meat and leather. Characters may spend their Downtime Action living and working in the village. This generates their Hunting Skill in Hide Bundles.

Forester Village

 

1 Labor, Forest – Peasants – Commerce : Darkness

Forester Villages are constructed in Forest Areas and center around the production of Lumber and wood. Characters may spend their Downtime Action living and working in the village. This generates their Forestry Skill in Lumber, or more depending on Clearcutting Progress.

Clearcutting Progress

Special – Use increases progress

Clearcutting Progress represents how far into a forest the logging operations have penetrated.  As logging continues, larger and denser trees can be accessed. 

Every time a Downtime Action to gather Lumber is taken in a Forester Village, this Add-On automatically gains progress toward advancement.  Every 10 Downtimes spent increases its level by 1.  For each level, the outputs of Lumber and wood item generations are increased by 50%.  When this reaches its 5th level, the Forest becomes depleted, and the area becomes a Plains instead.  This makes further Downtime use of the Forestry Village impossible.
