Patch Notes 18/MAY/17

The Almanac!

  • Crafted with sheet of paper and string + 2 leather strips, the almanac will hold reports you create about the nature of the tree, bush or trellis and estimate the harvest times.
  • Reports are created by studying a harvestable tree, bush or trellis during its harvest season.
  • You then can write down the record using a reed pen with ink or dye on paper.
  • Forestry skill will determine how much information is collected.
  • Resulting quality of the report will determine how far in the future you can see harvest times.
  • These reports may then be stored inside the almanac.
  • The almanac can then be used to check on harvest times and read up on information about the reports they have stored inside.
  • The command /almanac will tell you what is in season as long as you have the applicable reports.
