Helpline / Re: Winter food production on Dwilight.

Dwilight is a testing island and EC is not.  These are features that have already been implemented that appear to not be working properly.

Helpline / Winter food production on Dwilight.

This may be broken as well.  Looking at the statistics, winter started September 14th which should have a significant reduction in food since autumn gives a boost production and winter gives a penalty to food production.  It appears that most realms saw an /increase/ or relatively no change to their food production for winter.

Tol Goldora's food production raises further questions, though. Is there something broken or imbalanced in the monster/undead spawn code on Dwilight that allows TG to produce so much?

This is my opinion of what is happening based on my understanding of how undead and monsters choose their targets.  They go after the places with the lowest noble density.  All the rogues in the north try to get to Arnor, but have to go through Westgard to get there.  This seems to coincide with Avernus losing a significant portion of their western territories.   All the rogues in the south try to get to Madina, but have to go through Zuma lands to get there.  That is probably why we see so many rogue battles with Zuma on the turn reports.

IMO it shouldn't be possible to keep regions permanently on half rations.  Astrum has 3 cities and 1 rural region. That alone should be a red flag. None of their allies have a food surplus to sell them so how are they surviving? 

Perhaps it should be 3/4 , 1/2 and 1/4 rations.   Move the 1/2 penalties up to what 3/4 would be, and move 1/4 up to half and make new penalties for 1/4 rations.   I just see very little consequence for running half rations and it's letting skeletal realms like Madina and Astrum linger on for far longer than should be possible.

Avernus- 181k peasants.  362 bushels per day needed for.full rations.  2500/wk (Not including militia) and produces ~2000 food per week.

Astrum- 152k peasants.  Need 304 bushels per day 2100/wk. They produce on average 1500 bushels and they have/had a crap ton of militia.

So they almost have to have their cities on half rations.  Do lowered rations penalties get worse over time? Or do they have a cap?

It looks like it's still 1 bushel feeds about 500 people by doing the math on Flowrestown.  It doesn't appear that militia eat food.   Dividing the population by 500 is 130.2 and comes out to peasants eating 129 bushels after production.  I don't know what the city produces for food every day so I'm missing that number.  I seem to recall that militia eat 10x the food that peasants do.  Am I misrembering?

I'm not sure which regions are at half rations etc...  I'm assuming they are using half and quarter rations in Avernus, Arnor, Astrum and Westgard simply because.of their populations and food production.   The numbers of rural regions/City and bushels/populations makes me wonder what is going on. 

Is my assumption correct that the longer you are on reduced rations the worse the penalties are supposed to get?

Is food consumption broken?  Is half or quarter rations penalties broken?  I'm trying to crunch numbers and I'm not understanding how some of the realms on Dwilight are even functional.  Some realms have more cities than rurals.  (Astrum and Dhara) and some realms are close.(Arnor 4 rurals 3 cities. Avernus 2 cities 3 rurals)  Westgard produces less food or nearly equal to Astrum and has 50k more peasants to feed.   

Realms with more cities than rurals shouldn't be viable.  Is there some way to check the coding and see if food consumption or lowered ration penalties are working correctly?  If they are working correctly then perhaps food needs to be readdressed.   Makes it easier for some of the skeletal realms to hang on when food is not a factor for some reason.

Some areas just shouldn't be taken by realms.  Don't want to be dirt poor?  Don't build your realm on top of a badlands or desert.  Look at the Desert of silhouettes or the palm sea on Dwilight.   Never intended to be a region in a realm.  They were meant to be a limiting terrain. 

OI is irrelevant because they chose to build their realm in a !@#$ty place.

. Also, the main evidence Zeb/Dusty used throughout were the family records that "proved" Stheno was a commoner. No, they "proved" Stheno started a life of adventure. Its semantics, yes, but apparently this entire matter started with semantics.

The part of the family history that's most important is what's missing.  Theirs no affirmation of her becoming a noble.  According to the family history she was born a commoner and she died a commoner.

Also, doesn't having a commoner declared a noble and your heir circumvent the 1 noble rule? 

She was declared a noble and Ranias Heir.  Several other nobles participated.   Not just her daughter.

The Vahanian quote was what I was referring to.  After I posted my question here they changed their characters point of view.   I didn't post quotes to start with because I didn't think they would be needed.  My main question was about game mechanics trumping RP.  I will do better in the future enunciation my questions further.   A commoner is a commoner and not a noble.  RPing that they are a noble seems like it should be against the rules.

Convenient ass covering by antonia...  I was told I was not allowed to be Marshal or lord because I'm a 'commoner' and now I've been accused of multi cheating.

Despana forgot the part where the commoner was declared a noble without without using the game mechanics to do so and was declared Ranias Heir.  As for accusing fornication with a commoner or Daimon, no not quite....

Your Grace Rania,

Your own family doesn't recognize her either. Also, you didn't answer the question. Who is the father? How do we know you didn't fornication with some dirty commoner or abused by some Daimon? No, your daughter is not and never will be a noble. Wish all you want. Bluff and bluster all you want. It doesn't change the simple facts.

Rania declared her commoner to be a noble and heir. The game says she's a commoner and not a noble.  The commoner was being treated as a noble in RP's and such.  I protested such things as it goes against what it means to be noble.  If they were going to declare a commoner to be heir to a Royal and a Duke I started asking pointed questions to gain more details.  Now I'm the bad guy...  yes I pushed buttons...  the gist seems to be that family history isn't accurate and now I've been 'demoted' to being a commoner.   No one wants to speak up against it even though the guide to adventurers goes against all they are doing. Rania is quite popular so no one is going to question her.     A noble being declared a commoner should cause riots and no one seems to care
