Hello Clan! Summer brought many new plants to our Clan, and our old tools could barely keep up. Acre, Igrork, and Ata have a few Ideas on how to improve things.
It all starts with a seed, a tiny powerhouse that provides for the clan. There are no stores, and traders are too infrequent to get these all-important parts of farming life.
When you return from the wilderness with a seed, it will first grow as it did in its wild form. As you tend to the plant, the Clan will gain “Knowledge” about its needs. This will change how the plant looks, and it will start bearing a domesticated version of the original wild yield.
The more we sow and harvest a plant, the more Knowledge we’ll accumulate. Once a plant is domesticated, its yield quality will improve as it’s tended. This quality will affect contribution, refill rates of stamina, and even how much a Clan member will like that item.
It has always been our adoptive grandad’s dream to tend to plants and, although he is too old now to till the soil, he wants to help. Once you reach a specific Knowledge of plants, he’ll come up with the idea to create a “Plant Nursery.” There, Igrork can help by tending to the plants and providing a new source to get seeds rather than out in the wild.
The hands of our Clan have accomplished a lot, but it was their innovation of tools that allowed them to do more.
After you find obsidian for the first time, Acre will have the Idea to build a workstation that will allow her to work with these new-found materials. With the necessary resources, you will be able to improve your tools from flint to obsidian, tin, copper, and even to materials that require smelting.
Ata, the ambitious kid with a Hammer as a sidekick, will have the idea to start smelting metal. With her and her parents' help (she’s little after all), the Workstation will be improved to accommodate her wild idea to make metal stronger by mixing it.
These upgrades will allow you to accomplish more with less effort.
Cooperation is important to us, that’s why it plays such a pivotal role in Roots of Pacha. Our intention with the Discord bot is to have something fun that reflects that and brings everyone in the server together.
Starting July, instead of giving the alpha keys to the top 2 contributors, we’ll raffle 2 keys within the Top 15 contributors. But that’s not all, we’re also bringing back the community goals to increase the number of alpha keys raffled. Depending on how much contribution we all make as a Clan, we’ll raffle up to 5 alpha keys per month, the first 3 among the Top 15 and the last 2 among the Top 50.
A 3rd alpha raffle has already been unlocked !! 🔥🔥🔥
We just started working on updates to the bot. We’ll begin with mini-quests for the whole Clan, which will unlock new plants, a hummus item to save for whenever you’re hungry and need more stamina, random campfires for you to rest at, increased max stamina for a limited time, and new emojis for the server.
Some other things that are in the works for the next update:
A New Season
The leaves are changing, and the air is getting crisper. Fall brings with it lots of exciting visual changes as well as a toe-tapping festival for all to enjoy.
Fall is coming to the Land Between Two Rivers, but it’s still warm by the beach. We’ll be able to explore the area and find new plants and fish.
The next month’s edition will be a stream showing off this mammoth-sized alpha update. Stay tuned! You rock!
