Bessie Hull

    I'm not sure why I'm still just level one, but oh well. I just keep my nose to the grindstone.

    Hello Bessie!  You probably know this but just in case here are some of my observations regarding experience points (xp).  The Experience meter turns blue when it is maxed out.  I try not to do any tasks during this period, I just keep wearing the HUD to gain back more room on it.  I believe that the last thing I read said you gain back 1 point of room per 30 minutes.  Depending on the current level you may have to wait a number of hours before being able to earn the most xp per task so I tend to spread my work out across a full day.

    I've also found that doing different kinds of tasks, e.g. harvesting, cooking, grinding, making extracts, provides a better yield on xp than just straight harvesting does.

    Hope this helps!

    The month of June saw us establishing a small market presence for the Queen's Hamlet.  There's nothing more satisfying than seeing the fruits of your labours out on display and the coins earned are being used to purchase additional fruit trees for the garden.  This month it was a peach tree; next month I have my eye on apricots and perhaps another hen.


    Myriam and her fellow NPCs have taken over the role of Trader Merchant which was hastily vacated by the feckless Adam.  It's always interesting to see what she will offer me on any given day and I've found her to be quite fair in all of her dealings.  Though I tend to under-cut her prices a bit with the QH merchandise she doesn't seem to mind, in fact she never bats an eye.

    The Tea & Toast gatherings continue to be fun & informative with participants sharing the latest news along with their culinary creations.  Thank goodness I can work off some of those calories in the garden, otherwise I'd be letting out the waistband of my skirts for certain!


    I'm trying to apply my experience gained with G&S to my mid/long term strategy for using AES in the Queen's Hamlet. G&S seems to encourage a bit of industrialization which can lead to pointless grinding for little reward if you're not careful.  With AES I'm more conscious of the joys of limited scope and I intend to concentrate on producing key products while buying (or trading for) whatever else is needed from the community.  Time will tell if I can stick to this strategy but at the moment it seems like a much more enjoyable way to live my days in the hamlet :)

    Both Mikhail and I have embraced the Peasant profession.  The coppers earned are enough to pay for our seeds and the double xp are more than welcome. Feeling more secure in our own farming lives allowed us to turn our attention to the QH Co-op as a whole.  With the purchase of both a hen and a cow, official QH Jobs were initiated guaranteeing that, at the very least, there will be bread, eggs & milk free for our little farming community as we get established.

    The inaugural meeting of Tea & Toast was held and it was a whole lot of fun!  I definitely learned a lot and I can't remember when I've ever had so much to eat & drink at a gathering.  It reminded me of the story Stone Soup as we started out with very little but thanks to the generosity of the community ended up feasting.  One of the stated goals of the ACS is to encourage social interaction and this was one bright little event where you could actually see it succeeding.

    Bessie Hull:

    You have a dairymaid in Bessie. She has very clean hands for a peasant!

    I'm delighted to have Bessie working in the dairy!  With Una looking after the chickens and myself baking the bread we're off to an excellent start.
