    Plus, if you have ONE good Recipe, you actually have TWELVE good recipes. Everything iterates one position, but a reliable Recipe will work everywhere.

    Did you know this about expiring production building?

    Not quite on the mark, but AFTER the building has expired, you can find it on the Move/Sell map without the Buildings showing. The expired building has a transparent GREY base. At least in the Android mobile version.

    This post is a quick and dirty look at a validation recipe, which is what we used to corner the two Recipe Space anomalies. It's also useful if you've accidently clobbered your spreadsheet, and have to figure out what you messed up. Cell E18 has a -2, rather than the patterned -1 (like the cell...

    Only if you're willing to throw Diamonds at some of the Ingredients each week, because each week 4 of the 12 Ingredients "aren't fresh."

    Folks can opt-in for promotional emails from Elvenar, so a similar communication from your Fellowship would fall in the same bucket. I'm NOT suggesting routine Fellowship emails, because we have Fellowship Chat for that (such as it is.}

    I've got the Google Sheets Solver working, and I'm getting some interesting results. My standard recipe format will be changing to the following, for each Diploma Level aka Effect. The model works the same whether you use Witch Points or Diamonds, and I'll eventually add an occasional...

    "Everybody Knows" that your weekly Witch Point allotment is determined by the running total product of Number of Techs*Chapter Number, but I couldn't find a list anywhere. So I got to try out my new Touchscreen Monitor! My in-game Brewery shows 1715, and I've completed 13 of the Techs in...
