There are many resources that a town will produce, trade, and use for survival.

  • Logs are produced by cutting down trees and from the work of a forester. They are used in the construction of buildings, firewood, and tools. Regardless of the type or size of a tree, it will always yield 2-3 logs when cut down.

  • Stone is produced by harvesting stone piles on the surface, or by building a quarry. It is used in construction. Regardless of a single large stone or a tight gathering of many smaller ones in a 1x1 space, they will always yield 2 stone when mined by an educated citizen, or 1 stone when mined by an uneducated citizen.

  • Iron is found in deposits on the surface, or by building a mine. It is used in construction and the creation of tools.

  • Firewood is used to heat homes, and is created by chopping logs into firewood using a wood cutter.

Wood houses need roughly 30 firewood per year, stone houses need 15.
