We’ve learned a lot over the past two years! When the QH Co-op first started out (see Brag About Your Firsts V1 & V2 for a trip down memory lane) most of our Co-op members were eager to try EVERYTHING. Now that we’re a bit more “mature”, perhaps it’s a good time to suggest some specific roles that people might like to tackle. This makes sense since the G&S system has also grown, adding complexity to old tasks and several new items. It can be exhausting going it alone so let’s harness the power of the Co-op to simplify our daily lives.

From felling trees to sawing lumber to crafting items, carpentry can be a rewarding activity and I personally find it more relaxing than smithing (which, to my ears, is extremely noisy).
Hight Demand: Custom barrels for our winemaking. Boxes can always be used for packing our produce. Drying Tables for the new Cacao.
It’s definitely a challenge to produce an item from scratch because there’s a lot of labour involved each step of the way. It might be advantageous to break this role into two; Mining (extracting the raw materials) and Smithing (creating the final item). Smelting the raw materials into ingots probably falls somewhere in the middle.
High Demand (Miner): Iron & Salt
High Demand (Smith): Barrel Hoops. All kinds of tools. Repairs for tools, especially Master Tools are also required. It would be great if a Master Blacksmith would take over the role of repairing all our broken items.
Back in the day we ALL use to fish and it was most enjoyable. We had fish and seafood coming out of our ears! When G&S changed the seafood so that it expired it became more realistic and harder. I’m looking for a way to put the FUN back in FISHING and so I’m looking for suggestions.
I’m wondering If people would be willing to sell their seafood raw (unpacked) via vendors in the Market? They could announce (here and in group chat) a new shipment which could then be purchased by others willing to do the processing (including Mikhail our Estate Manager). Do you think this would work?
High Demand: Everything Raw. Tea Seeds. Sushi, Cooked Lobster, Lobster w Oysters, Tuna Steak w Sake
Nothing like the smell of fresh baking! While most of us can whip up a pie or two, we need experts who can learn and maintain the knowledge necessary for various delicacies.
High Demand: Cake House, Custard Roll, Eternal Kiss Cake, Sweet Kiss Cake. QH Cocoa is on the way so any chocolate recipes (especially secret ones) would be a welcome addition.
Some might say that we’re overrun with goats! We also have a great supply of free goat meat just waiting to be used up.
High Demand: Verr skewers, sausage, chorizo
Our winemaking with the new 3.0 system is coming along nicely. Spots are limited but if you really wanted to try your hand at growing the finest wine in the land I’m sure we could find a spot for you.
Our crops are doing really well. If you have the urge to dig in the dirt we can arrange to place you in a plot or two.
BASKET WEAVERS & POTTERS
Baskets & Jars can always be used. A great way to make some extra coin especially since the raw materials are free.
Please support your fellow members by purchasing locally. You can’t take those coins with you when you go so spend them now!
The best way to move your goods is to become a merchant, selling your products in the Market. There are plenty of stalls & carts available so grab an empty one (or two or three) and start selling. Note that there is no charge for Co-op members selling in our Market. Contact Tatiana if you need help setting up vendor boxes.
QUESTIONS, QUERIES, COMMENTS? PLEASE ASK 😊
IF YOU ARE ALREADY DOING OR PLAN TO TACKLE ANY OF THESE ROLES PLEASE TELL US HERE.
