To the Build action, after the “Choose a Block” bullet, add another:-

* Perform their Specialisation’s Bonus (if they have a Specialisation)

Enact a new rule, “Specialisation”:-

Each Engineer may have a single Specialisation from the following list, being publicly tracked by having the first letter of that Specialisation prepended to their Safety Checks (and no letter prepended if they have no Specialisation). Each Specialisation has the Bonus effect listed for it.

  • Architect: Swap any two non-Empty Blocks in the Building
  • Carpenter: Change any Block in the Building to Wood
  • Decorator: Change a non-Empty Block in the Building to the Material listed directly below it in the Building Contents table
  • Electrician: Gain 20 Focus
  • Logistician: Increase three Engineers’ Stone values by 1
  • Stonemason: Gain 1 Stone

An Engineer with 6 or more Safety Checks may set their Safety Checks to 5 to set their Specialisation to any valid value.

If “Underlay, Underlay, A Rebar, A Rebar” enacted, move the Rebar Material to be above Stone, in the Building Contents table.

Bringing back the Guilds idea as a reward for successfully building.

Don’t we already have Safety Checks as a potential currency in the pipeline?  This seems a bit redundant.

Oh, I’d missed that as the intention. I’ll drop the creation of the Merit stat and just use Safety Checks instead, then.

Shouldn’t the Logistician and Stonemason decrease the Stone in the Quarry by the same amounts, or is it intentional to generate Stone from nothing?

[Jonathan] No deliberate intention either way, propose to amend if you like.
