    Big mama is making her way to the village along with a few other chaos seeds. What do you guys expect to see, other than the elven librarian (basically confirms Richter will build a core library, this entire family is made up of convenient people XD) and big mama herself? I expect

    1) Rat the goblin. 90% chance he is a chaos seed. Also it seemed like a pretty big clue that they found him wandering around aimlessly, thats what I expect quite a few chaos seeds are doing.
    2) Between 200 and 500 new citizens.
    3) A bunch of other nonhumans, few if any of whom have professions - I doubt even mama can get to the really valuable nonhumans, crafting professionals are worth a lot of money. Might be a dozen or so that have sufficiently advanced skills but haven't had the time yet.
    4) A dozen or two (might be more) chaosseed nonhumans that spawned within the borders of Yves. The relatively benign - compared to the goblins and gnolls - and internally stable kingdom would be one of the places with a high survival rate, so I think quite a few chaos seeds could have made it to a village, town or city within the kingdom and from there onwards to Law (at least in some cases, going to the biggest city around is one way of finding other chaos seeds or information). That said, nonhuman chaos seeds would likely want to go somewhere where they would not be second class citizens, making them prime recruiting material for Mama. No family and no possesions keeping them in Yves either.
    5) Bad news. I expect some kind of crackdown on the nonhuman community to have taken place, to appease the count and the other holders without the expense of a military campaign out in the middle of nowhere.

    I am split on the idea of chaos Seeds traveling with Mama. She is Very strict about who she trusts to bring with her. It depends on how quickly earthlings were able to build relationships points with her. Completing enough quests for Mama in particular specifically will give us a rare individual, let alone finding mama ma that big ole city to get a quest from her.

    I agree this will be the top end nonhuman crafters and their families. They are the people with (prior) influence to make this caravan happen. Unskilled labour...there should be a much larger group of them as a mass exeduce.

    As for Roswan's ex-wife, Roswan will be able to smell the brimstone coming off her, and stay inside the Dungeon where she can't venture.

    This will be the best Richter gets, not the topend of nonhuman crafters. The more valuable, the tighter the watch and the riskier it is to try to get them out.

    The majority of unskilled workers would have already been expelled from the kingdom, the crafters were the ones that they held onto. There are plenty of humans to do grunt labor.

    Finding Mama isn't that difficult, there is a nonhuman quarter if I remember it right, where any wandering nonhuman would be "guided" to. Since Mama organizes the workers, they'd almost certainly end up facing her or her people if they want work within the city.

    A core library, then the skill boost is auto relegated to research, and he can choose the technocrat specialty where all his new skill levels in research will be passively added to the research potential of the village, possibly even passively leveling the skill for him constantly...

    Hey a guy can dream.

    They might be able to find her if they know who they are looking for, but she is one of many contactors, and requires papers. She deals with lots of human laborers too, so I'm thinking she will be bringing people she knows and trusts. Which should not be new earthling, unless I miss my guess. we are weird compared to the local norm, and don't have a backstory that can be verified.

    Rat could easily be a chaos seed. Wasn't it mentioned in the book how unusual it was for a goblin to be a cook?

    Also looking like he didn't know what the hell was going on, characteristic of those who don't speak the language

    Rat, the one redeeming goblin of the race. If he is a earthling, the whole goblin race is evil (Mielikki was right).
