ACS Journal: Tatiana's Farming for Fortune


QH Resources & Guides

TatianaDokuchicFarming for Fortune 08.png

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.

QH Job Offerings


QH Resources & Guides

In the spirit of our co-operative, the Queen's Hamlet is now offering a number of jobs that can be performed using the Antiquity Crafting System (ACS).  Not only will workers receive experience points (xp) and coins from performing these jobs but they will also share in the proceeds.

The bread, eggs, and dairy products will be distributed free of charge to all QH workers who participate.  As they become available, you will find these items located in the refurbished Dairy.  As we've always done well as a group on the honour system it is believed that this distribution should work quite well.  Basically, if you've contributed something feel free to take an equal number of items for your own use.

It is hoped that as ACS and our usage of it matures we will add more jobs and also enhance these initial ones.  We're going to try to distribute the workload while taking into account that people may want to switch/swap jobs depending on current interests.

Let's see how it goes and we'll adjust as we go along.  Most of all have fun!

QH Getting Started with ACS


QH Resources & Guides

Rest assured that the QH is up for the challenge, Jacon!  We're definitely a hardy bunch.  I'm really looking forward to gathering those herbs.  Might even try some of that brandy, as soon as I can afford it.

Thank you, Louis for all this fun!

It's true, I left out the pirates on purpose.  Didn't want to be corrupting the good farmers of the QH with dreams of Spanish treasure ;)

Bessie Hull:

The slurls were exactly what I needed! I now have my own bag of wheat seeds and two fields ready to harvest in two days.

Excellent!  You'll be baking bread in no time :)

QH Getting Started with ACS


QH Resources & Guides

TatianaDokuchicFarming for Fortune 06L.png

This Getting Started guide is intended as a quick introduction to the Antiquity Crafting System (ACS) for the Queen's Hamlet Co-op.  It may also be helpful for anyone starting ACS at level 1 that intends to be a farmer.

Please note that my experience is limited so my strategy is still evolving.  And speaking of evolving, ACS is in its early days and changing at a lovely pace.  This means that suggestions that work today might not work tomorrow so I'll try to keep updating as we go along

ACS is challenging!  Starting at level 1 with limited funds and resources means that you are in survival mode.  As Una pointed out, we're back to our early G&S days of eating fish in the morning, noon, and night. Thankfully with community support and an initial loan we can not only survive but thrive.

First Steps:

  • Check out the ACS Starter Guide
  • Head to the Antiquity RP Help Centre to get your HUD
  • Select your Class (Noble or Townsfolk)
  • Select your first Profession (Peasant which may give you bonus experience points (xp) and coins for farming)
  • Head to the Bank in Antiquity Bath to get your weekly allowance - do this every Thursday
  • While you're in Bath fill your pockets with any edible apples you can find - free food!

At this point you have two choices.  It is highly recommended that you sign up for a QH Job (see QH Job Offerings) or you can decide to go it alone in which case you should 

  • Head to the Harvest Traders in Mont Saint Bruno (turn left at the sketchy guy standing at the corner) and purchase wheat seeds for 10c
  • Head to the Antiquity Public Farm and haul some water from the well
  • Find a vacant wheat field and plant it - it will be ready for harvest in 48 hours
  • If you can't find a vacant wheat field and/or you would like another wheat field head to Louis' Worker Fields

Whew! You're on your way :)

REVISED: May 31, 2019 with QH Job Offerings

Meet Adam the Trader Merchant.  I had big plans for Adam; we were going to be best buddies, he was going to help me on my path to riches.

I scoped him out from afar and he seemed like a nice enough fellow, maybe a little dour looking but I've seen worse.  My plan was to lay on the charm so for on our first meeting I brought him an orange.  He scowled and refused to take it.  Apparently he cannot be bribed by edible items.

Returning the next day with a basket of oranges, I smiled as I gently placed the basket in front of him and politely requested to sell them.  He ignored me.  I poked him in the chest. He shifted his gaze away from me.  I pushed him only to find him rock-solid in his stance and still unwilling to barter.

Enough was enough! I reported him to management!

Returning the next day he informed me he was "Out of service for now" and so he remains.  Good help is so hard to find!

I'm happily stockpiling fruits and vegetables while Adam is being re-programmed.  I plan to hire a huge cart to haul my produce to him on his first day back at work.

Au revoir, Adam.  I'll be back!

Sipping my morning coffee, happy at the reports that the looting of farms has stopped for now.  Must have been Louis patrols that spooked them off.

Yes!  Louis and his patrols are most efficient.  An educated peasantry who understand their boundaries also helps ;)

Thank you for the congratulations, I'm personally having a lot of fun and plan to drag as many farmers from the QH as I can into this adventure.  Some like Bessie (Satoharu) are taking advantage of my early failures.

Speaking of mistakes,I'm sure your job is safe for now Jacon but you're always welcome in the QH.  Be warned, we eat a LOT of bread & apples.
