If you're looking for things to craft, I suggest double stacks of foundation blocks with wall torches on the side, braziers on top, and optional wall-mounted signs under the torches (rather than separate standing signs).

I went ahead and did this to blaze a trail from the Dagon obelisk to my base.  Check it out, it's a fun little hike.   DRILLING AND MANLINESS

I made that run. Dagon is a slumlord. That coastal property is totally going to ruin.

You know what I wish? I wish they had divided up the resources better so that their might be actual reason to trade between us. Right now I think we are all just going and getting whatever we need, instead of mining/harvesting our particular local goods and then running them over to the next region. Once you get north of the barrier you can be pretty much self sufficient for all the upper level stuff.

Do you have access to iron in the jungle there? I'm asking because I snagged a few potions of Set from Trad'R Sam's and wanted to drop something off for them. I mean, it is "Trad'R Sam's" and not "Take What You Want Sam's."

I can always use moar bricks.   awesome, for real

also, for those unaware of the story behind the name Trad'r Sam

The jungle is kind of a useless appendix to the game overall--I mean, it's visually interesting, but there's almost no unique resources there, especially now that the lizards don't routinely drop volatile glands.

I have begun building the colusseum.

It is going to be quite gargantuan.

Wish me luck.

Good luck.  I've been slowly building a half-assed version of the Pantheon.  Gathering all the mats for this shit is slow going.

Maybe Schild could spawn a bunch of monsters in there when you're finished. We could drive in our thralls and watch them get eaten.

Hell, can you make thralls fight each other? We could have actual gladiatorial games...

Tame thralls will definitely fight wild thralls.

I posted a pic in discord of the initial rough out of the base of the colusseum. It is not a replica of the roman one (I didn't elongate my "circle" into an oval, probably could/should have but fuck it.)

I think your Pantheon might fit on the main arena floor.  why so serious?

Spent some time today showing the wife all your various creations.

Some of you, I literally don't know where you get the time, but I'm envious nevertheless.

So just for the foundations (square/wedge/fence) for the colusseum I will be using:
16,000 Hardened Brick
3,800 Steel Reinforcements
4,200 Shaped Wood

I have not estimated how much the terraces and walls will cost yet.

I guessed I would need at least 100,000 hardened brick last week. I think that was a conservative estimate   ACK!

I think my villa at Mounds of the Dead took about 17k hardened brick. I had 5k stockpiled, wasn't nearly enough. I still have some placeholder blackice, just so much easier to make.

Shaped wood is the part that is going to be my biggest bottleneck I think.

There is a ton of stone nearby to the construction site so I can just make brick as I go. I have enough ichor and twine on hand at the site to make about 20k hardened bricks I think.

Hardened brick is my bane. That and not having a lot of online time right now.

The main structure (walls, terraces) of the colusseum is complete and all in marble.

Judging by how many bricks I had to make each day this week after I ran out on the weekend, I think the total number of hardened brick used was around 50,000.

I still have a lot of "finish" work (benches, statuary, braziers) to do but I think it has mostly come out nicely.

Aquilonian gateways are bugged and won't let you attach the long side of a wedge to the inside of the top edge so I had to make "hats" for the gateways which pissed me off. But I'll survive.

I have mostly completed the Colusseum. Just have to make the armor for my archers/royal guards and clean-up the "work site". Oh, and make/hang some banners and add some braziers in a few spots.

Benches and awnings all around, throne in the royal box, Axe-throwing archers on the pedestals on the arena floor.

Eventually I will populate the stands with some thralls.

So where is this marvel? I want to come see it.

It's just north of the unnamed city, southeast of fingerfang rock IIRC.  I added it to the first post.

I've been working on a shopping mall above the Dregs.  If you take a map room to the southernmost obelisk (the one that lights up dark blue on the map) you can't possibly miss it -- or go to the Dregs via the noob river and it's a quick run up the hill.  Haven't outfitted it yet (it's mostly built in sandstone and am converting it to marble now) but the idea is to set it up as a neatly laid out one-stop-shop for all your crafting needs.

It's actually almost directly outside the West entrance to the city. Take the desert obelisk, head down the stairs and run to about 1 o'clock and once you go over the first set of dunes it will start to appear.
