Proposal: Brick by Brick

Popular, 9-2. Josh

Enact a new rule, “Buildings”:-

Each Settler has a publicly tracked list of Buildings called a Settlement, which defaults to being empty.

The Buildings that may exist are listed below, with their Cost in brackets and their effect listed after their Cost:

* Farm (2 Wood, 1 Sheep, 1 Wheat) As a Harvest Bonus, gain 1 Sheep or 1 Wheat.
* Quarry (2 Brick, 1 Wood) As a Harvest Bonus, gain 1 Stone.
* Church (2 Stone) Applies to a part of the Harvesting the Crop action.

A Settler may pay the Cost of a Building from their Stockpile, to add an instance of that Building to their Settlement.

Add a bullet point to the end of the “Harvesting the Crop” action (at the top level, not as part of the “optionally” sublist):-

* Apply the Harvest Bonus of any number of Buildings they control, in any order

And replace with “Replace the number for one of their domains with another up to two higher or lower than it” with:-

Replace the number for one of their domains with another up to two higher or lower than it (or with any number, if their Settlement contains a Church)

against  No fast exponential growth, please.

This doesn’t quite uncork fast exponential growth by itself, but that would kick in as soon as Harvest Bonuses can supply any resource.

Also, as a separate objection, harvest bonuses here are calibrated to swamp the domain gain as soon as they apply.

A resource cap earned per turn could fix the first problem. Your objection seems patchable.
