    I don’t think it will be a problem for them to get at all. I am sure she is resource rich. A bit of finagling and she will have it all in a jiffy. They probably know where to go dig for what they need. I just don’t see them hoarding gold, silver or platinum. That’s not saying they can’t obtain it rapidly. I just don’t think according to the story line it means enough to them to keep it in large quantities.

    To me this does beg the question. Could allies jointly use SP’s for a allied purpose?

    Could SP’s be given to another party or could they be used as a payment?

    If Ricther decides to use his magic core for some greater purpose at the hearth tree could the HM use SP’s to instantly help improve that structure?

    For instance if Ricther built a magic forge for the Hearth Tree it would still be Ricthers forge. To instantly improve upon it in leu of forge points. Could the HM use SP’s to up grade the smelter with a forced air intake?

    That was just gold. That’s not including the star dust, dragons bone, platinum, etc...........

    But I am with you 1oo and 10 percent!

    Pretty sure the sp used the most expensive version of the apprentice portal, so it might cost a quarter million gold to build?

    Dragon's bone, star dust, platinum and so on are unlikely to be part of an 11.000 gold estimate. I'm not even sure they can be bought in the peninsula, its too backwards.

    Kind of some weird phrasing to conclude much from.

    So it sounds like Richter heard Hisako say that "he can earn them once he has unlocked the potential to gain his second level Power bonuses". Hisako's wording from book 7 is... ambiguous. Given Richter is usually Aleron when things like this are said as statements of fact, he may be right, but it could still be that he has to actually "unlock the second level of all [his] Powers" before he can start to earn them. Once more we set something aside until 'Lord Gyoti' either stumbles into victory, or finally decides to ask for clarification.

    So how many settlement points will Ricther earn a week?

    How will Ricther be able to increase his settlement points?

    1 a week to start
    Specialized PoP quests, or further leveling of his powers

    Agreed.

    I think anything that amplifies his pops powers would increase his settlement points.
    That might even include the celestial tree improving his PoP.

    At later levels I could see the tree having that effect. But leveling it seems certain to take a while even with the pixie births and its natural growth.

    The tree wouldn’t be much of a factor if sp generation was 1/month. Sure that is 15/year with a 12 month calendar (we don’t even know that yet though). 15/year is still a tiny amount that can’t accomplish much. Especially when we still don’t know if there is a storage cap Or time limit for them. You could speed research or begin a extremely longterm and Well planned “public works project”.

    I think a normal PoP might earn one SP a week. With Ricthers PoP I really expect two a week. That is due to him always knocking everything out of the park in comparison.

    i am still having trouble with the idea that richter didn’t use his settlement points to build and level his mana storage building. He could have gotten a level 3 version. Far fewer concerns about the village pool.

    Agreed.

    He could have easily powered thru several low level techs also.

    What does a magic core have to do with the mana storage building? He has blue prints for a level 1

    Using the core for that is in my opinion a total waste. A defensive structure or a crafting type building would be best. Potentially a library as well but any benefits that has is too uncertain atm to really support the idea.

    Nothing directly. The point is Ricther still has the options of the core token and a magic core. He could use either or neither on a mana storage building. Personally I don’t think a level one or three mana storage unit would make that great a difference. Even a higher level or a core mana storage won’t likely make much difference. It would take some time to store enough mana to make a big difference. Would a core mana storage offer unlimited storage? Would it grow to fit the storage needs like racks and shelves in the forge and cauldron?

    Ricther would get a more immediate benefit using the core on the Sepulcher then using the core token to upgrade it. It might be better level the Sepulcher to two higher then the town hall.

    I know Dark was some what disappointed in how Ricther didn’t use some SP’s for his mana storage structure.

    I to wish other things would have been considered. Ricther should not only consider playing into his own strengths but the strengths of his trusted officials. A level 10 town hall would have been a big help. Randy’s bonuses for diplomacy and espionage would definitely add up. Not to mention the additional abilities they would gain from any additional trophies. I wouldn’t be surprised if a level 10 town hall did offer additional things that we haven’t been told about. A level ten town hall would also make the core token worth more when being used to create a non core structure.

    A level 10 town hall wasn’t in the cards. Max level was village +1 for town hall. All other buildings town hall+1.
