We've been developing tonight, and here's what's new.
Fix: Charter Stones can now be turned on or off by lawspeakers and cheiftains. It is also always possible to start by The Ring of Brodgar, pending a better solution. If you wish to start by an active charter stone, look for a cellar door in the character creation room.
Fishing: Fishing poles now require hooks, lures and lines. All string items count as lines. A few lures are now craftable, as are a few hooks. Craft -> Tools -> Fishing gear. What you catch when fishing might seem completely fucking random. It is not. It depends on the following factors: Time of day, astronomical conditions, lure, hook and line type as well as quality on those. Where you fish also plays part. Silk moths, worms, leeches, and earthworms can be used as bait. Dig for earthworms in the forest. Baits, unlike lures, must be replaced after each attempt at catching a fish. You do not always catch fish when throwing out the line. In short, spit in the water and pray that the stars are right... and all the other less-than-obvious factors that come into play here.
All Hallows' Eve: Pumpkin Hat (scary-cool) and scythe now available. Sadly, it'll be two ingame weeks before any pumpkins are finished growing. Come pick up seeds by the blasted abomination in the middle of the map.
Edit: You harvest faster while having the scythe equipped, obviously.
"There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved."
