It's been exactly a week since I ventured into the Advanced Economic System [AES] and so far I'm absolutely delighted with my experience. I thought I would start a bit of a journal to record the progress made by Mikhail & myself and perhaps help others to learn from our successes and failures in the early days. I would encourage others that are using ACS to begin their own journals as I'm sure we'd all benefit from the community knowledge.
- Start Date: May 15, 2019
- Class: Noble
- Funds: 50c
- Start Date: May 16, 2019
- Class: Townsfolk
- Level: 1
- Funds: 20c
Starting at Level 1 means that our day-to-day objective is basically learning how to survive and thrive. My long term goal is to climb the social ladder and become a Duchesse. Mikhail is looking forward to establishing a worthy profession (as yet undetermined). It's always good to be surrounded by a supportive community so not only are the two of us working together as a team but we're collaborating with friends that are pioneering the system.
I was relieved to see that my starter kit contained objects to keep my Energy & Hygiene needs satisfied. As for Hunger, I quickly learned that there are a number of apple trees that can be harvested to provide nourishment. These are spread throughout Antiquity including the City of Bath and the public farm . I may be a duchesse at heart, but starving is definitely not a good look so I filled my pockets. I also made my first trip to the bank to receive my weekly allowance of 50 copper coins. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I pouted about this pittance until I learned that Mikhail, being a Townsfolk, only received 20c.
Looks like apples will be on the menu for some time to come!
Updated Jan 12, 2020: Changed Antiquity Crafting System (ACS) to Advanced Economic System [AES] to keep information current.
