I like Tink. He's given me answers to my questions that have been quite the opposite of condescending.

Speaking of which, I got another one, "How do I send workers back to my town from a quarry?" I can't seem to find a button for that.

for the n00bs out there ...

Having played the first couple of weeks without the scripts, and now having the scripts, I have to say that the scripts are worth it. You can see at a glance what you have, what your staffing levels are, and what level everything is at.

Did that first thing. Since I'm only 99% certain I had nothing up (though when I did put stuff up, my stock went down immediately, not when it was bought), I'm not that disconcerted. If it happened repeatedly, then I'd be concerned.
Thanks

Pretty certain.

I put some oil up a little over week ago, but it sold in minutes. None since that time.

Weird market sale

Hi Folks, I'm a little weirded out today when I checked my city. Somehow I managed to sell 100 Oil for 600 Bread an hour before I logged on. Problem is, I don't remember ever putting 100 Oil on the market, prior to this point that hadn't already sold, and my stock is down 100 from what it should be....

OK, you got me with that one. "Stele collapses"? What's that?

Because there is NOT any that actually answers these questions, much as you did not.

How about explaining the "ways of playing the game" vs just handwaving?

Thanks Guys ...

Thanks Guys, you've been most helpful.

I'm sure I'll have more questions, but during the time this thread has been running I've got my first trades going, first barracks built and I'm building my Palace up to level 5! Now I just have to kick over one of those monument plots.

OK, I have another n00b question. What's a "quarry plot"? I see city plots, monument plots owned by bandits and monuments.

Some n00b questions that don't seem to be covered.
