“My sore throats are always worse than anyone’s.”
– Jane Clawsten, Enticement
Turn Deadline: Saturday, Mar 03 @ 11pm EST
As the plague situation has grown most dire, it is hoped that Mayor Tidewell’s commitment to procuring medicines from Brittania Prime will yet bear fruit. The very best of Weatherby have the opportunity to rise to the occasion.
Turn 3 Group Mission:
Mayor Tidewell asks the landed and titled classes of Weatherby to contribute to the cause of importing cutting edge medical supplies and personnel from Brittania Prime. Of those elected to Leviathan’s, she asks for a total contribution of 2400£ to the endeavor. If you wish to contribute to the cause for example, you may do so with the order:
If the threshold is reached, it is almost certain that relief from the plague will be received next season. If the threshold is not reached, relief ships are less likely to arrive in proportion to the shortfall.
Meanwhile, one might expect the following:
Turn 3 risks: Fair chance of a decline in health that would likely be moderate. Average chance for any existing condition to either improve or worsen.
Turn 3 rewards: Poor chance to see improvement to an existing holding.
Choose only one of the following options as well as how much you wish to invest in that option. Greater investments results in greater economies of scale. A higher relevant stat will further improve outcomes, but to a lesser extent than the size of the investment. For example:
Invest 1 300
Option 1: Invest in municipal projects: The public offerings of Weatherby need repair and improvement.
Purchasing bonds will assist in the construction of orphanages, libraries, sanitariums, and other essential services .
Rewards: Good chance for good income improvement, below average income improvement otherwise.
Risks: Fair chance of being on the receiving end of a bad deal. BUS > 15 reduces the chance to poor. BUS > 25 reduces the chance to lousy.
Option 2: Move into industry verticals: Additional industries are available to convert raw materials into refined goods: textile mills, canneries, warehouses, smelters, and the like. Specialists and engineers are available for those looking to convert existing holdings into products for local and offworld consumption.
Rewards: Above average chance for very good income improvement, average income improvement otherwise.
Risks: Fair chance of being on the receiving end of a bad deal. BUS > 20 reduces the chance to poor. BUS > 30 reduces the chance to lousy.
Option 3: Invest in remaining tracts: Although the remaining tracts are not as productive as those that have already been snapped up, they are sold by professional brokers. Sadly, some brokers are more professional than others.
Rewards: Outside chance of outstanding income improvement, good income improvement otherwise.
Risks: Fair chance of incurring future legal risk.
Attend a Social Gathering
Optional: As the season turns to summer, invitations are sent around for games and pursuits in the out of doors. If you wish to attend an event, for example:
Option 1: Receive an invitation to proper Lagoderm Polo - a sharp and daring game, those that receive invitations represent the social standouts of the current year.
Requirements: Rank of 400 or higher at the start of the turn.
Relevant stats: MIL
Rewards: Average chance to make a star play - improving rank by 10%, otherwise a 5% improvement.
Risks: Poor chance that you will be thrown from a lagoderm, resulting in minor injuries.
Option 2: Receive an invitation to a rousing game of Badminton
Requirements: Rank of 350 or higher at the start of the turn.
Relevant stats: FSH
Rewards: Fair chance of making a sporting play - improving rank by 7%, otherwise a 3% improvement.
Risks: Average chance that you bean another player selecting this option, resulting in a very minor decrease in health to the other player.
Option 3: Receive an invitation to a spritely game of Croquet
Requirements: Rank of 300 or higher at the start of the turn.
Relevant stats: EDU
Rewards: Poor chance to win the game, resulting in a modest increase in rank (+15)
Risks: Average chance to roquet a fellow player, resulting in a small increase in rank for you (+5) and a small reduction in rank for the player that was roqueted (-5).
Optional: One may choose to wager on this season’s Lagoderm race. Merely select a promising creature from the Sports & Leisure section and also indicate the size of the wager. Example:
Wager Hamdinger 100
The goods in the market district will be available from turn to turn, although prices may change. One may upgrade or downgrade in any given category from turn to turn as needed.
Optional: Specific professionals may become available for hire from turn to turn. As long as they continue to be paid a salary, they will serve you to the best of their abilities. Only a certain number of professionals will be available per turn. Availability is not guaranteed from turn to turn. In the event that more individuals want to hire a specific profession than is available, those of highest RANK will be served first. Example
The following individuals are available this turn:

Physician (3) 100£ per turn Improves health by 1-2 ranks per turn
Butler (1) 50£ per turn FSH+2 each turn of employment
Optional: One may procure personal quarters within the city at the current market rate. Any change of quarters comes with an additional 25£ fee for moving services. Each improvement represents a move to a better neighborhood with a more impressive address. Example:

150£ Subscription to the Weatherby Street Journal (BUS+6, EDU+2)
