Yes, those are fantastic suggestions and I think it would do a lot towards making town claims much more user friendly and less exploitable.

I think there should always be a place for tricks and exploits in Salem, but when they can be used to take away such a large investment from another player they should be carefully monitored.

Day 54: New Alcohol Part 1

I didn't play Concord so I don't know what Alcohol did, but I assume it was unbalanced if it didn't make it to Providence. This might step on old Alcohol or be completely different.

I see Alcohol as needing to have a positive side and a negative side but also still be worth making and despite that negative.

4 major types of Alcohols: Vodka made from Potatoes, Ciders made from Fruits, Moonshine made from Corn, Wine made from Grapes.

1 minor type of alcohol, Beer made from Barley.

Alcohols decrease the drain/damage for one bile while increasing the drain/damage for 1 other type.

Cider decreases blood drain while increasing yellow bile drain.
Vodoka decreases phlegm drain while increasing black bile drain.
Moonshine decreases yellow bile drain while increasing blood drain.
Wine decreases black bile drain while increasing phlegm drain.

There are 3 states to this buff. The first is Buzzed, drinking up to 50% effectiveness. Drinking up to 60%

Drink 6 - 10 sips will be Drunk. Each sip increases the buff's potency by 10%.

Unlike other buffs this buff's effectiveness wears down over time, so it can't be refreshed only added to. However even as the Buff wears down it does not change the Buzzed/Drunk distinction. If you drink any major alcohol while under the Drunk buff it will automatically start you at 50%.

The Third state Delirium Tremens. This state increases your drain on all biles until it wears off. Only getting Buzzed will not cause Delirium Tremens when the buff wears off but getting drunk will. Additionally any time you drink more than one Major Alcohol it will cancel your buff, cause you character to vomit, and cause Delirium Tremens.

Drinking Beer, the Minor Alcohol, will not add to your buff, instead if you drink Beer while under the Drunk buff, it will prevent you from going into Delirium Tremens for 1 hour for each sip.

Example of how this all works, cause I'm having trouble explaining these interactions:
You drink 5 sips of Vodka and you lose 50% less phlegm say while running or digging or chopping wood, but lose 50% more black bile when placing structures or studying. At this point you

At this point you have the Buzzed buff. It will go away over time and will not cause DTs. However drinking a 6th sip, either at the start or to refresh the buff will cause you to lose 60% less phlegm, but 60% more black bile but now you have the Drunk buff. Letting this buff expire will cause DTS. However if you drink a sip of Beer it will prevent DTs and keep your Drunk Buff active. Drinking another hard alcohol while your Drunk Buff is active but at 0% will instantly put you at 50% effectiveness for whatever hard alcohol you drank, and as long as the Drunk buff was at 0%, there is no penalty for mixing alcohols.

Yes, Salem is the wife of a sailor whose husband has been out to sea for too long. Sure we make do, but we long for a man's touch. At first we would imagine our husband JC, surprising us, "I've returned early" he would shout, bursting through the front door and sweeping us into his strong arms and carrying us up to our bed, giggling. But now our thoughts have wandered, the neighbor perhaps, we have even been flirting a little with out ex Jorb. We haven't been unfaithful, but at the same time its nice to feel wanted...

At least I think that us what you were trying to say.

Day 55: Making Cider

Apple, Cherries, Pear, Peaches, and Plum can be placed in an Oil Press.

Each fruit pressed produced .1 liters of cider. Cider cannot be pressed if oil is already in the press and like wise oil cannot be pressed if Cider is already in the press.

Normally fruits are destroyed while pressing them but rarely they will be replaced with the appropriate pit, or in the case of an apple, apple seeds. Pits and seeds can also be planted but don't rot. They are also low quality inspirationals.

Drinking Cider gives the warm and cheerful buff which restores 5% of all biles for each sip and adds +1 to your body temperature, this also removes the body temperature cap so you temperature can go above 100, which if the outside temperature is also warm will cause heat exhaustion.

Placing a pot over a fireplace filled with cider and 1 stick of cinnamon or cloves (found through floating crates in the ocean) and boiling will give you Spiced Cider, which restores 10% of all biles but raises body temperature by 5.

New Recipe - Cork + Glass Jar + 5 L of Cider, 1x Cheese Cloth makes Unfermented Jar of Cider. You must be using a Butterchurn to craft this recipe Leaving an Unfermented Jar of Cider in a container for a few weeks makes a Jar of Hard Cider. Right-clicking and selecting "Uncap" will drain the Hard Cider into a bucket or other vessel in your inventory. Jar and Cheese Cloth are returned, but the cork is not.

Right-clicking Barley on water will created Soaked Barlery. Soaked Barley that is placed in a container for a few days will become Germinated Barely. Germinated Barely Can be placed in a Kiln, after 5 hours it will be come Malted Barely.

You must be using a Butterchurn to craft this recipe. After leaving it in a container for a few days it will become a Fermented Jar of Potato Mash. Right-click and select "Uncork" to drain the Potato Mash into a vessel. Jar and Cheese Cloth is returned, but the cork is not.

Each bunch of Grapes pressed produced .1 liters of Grape Juice. Grape Juice cannot be pressed if oil is already in the press and like wise oil cannot be pressed if Grape Juice is already in the press.

Drinking Grape Juice gives the Young At Heart buff which increases the speed of all tasks (ie crafting, whiting, chopping, digging, mining, building, etc) but increase the phlegm drain as well. Additionally Swim and run speed is increased.

Day 60: Alcohol Follow (aka stuff I forgot or want to add now)

Germinated Barley spoils and Becomes Spoiled Barely after 72 hours.

New Recipes:
Unbaked Clay Jug - 8x Clay. Baking in an Kiln for 5 hours makes a Clay Jug. A Clay Jug holds 25 liters of any Alcohol and can go into your inventory. The Black Market Vendor in the Harbor District will buy full Jugs 350 silver pieces.
Using 8x Misshapen Clay makes an Unbaked Toby Jug. Baking it in a Kiln makes a Toby Jug, an inspirational.

Moonshiner's Flag - XXX flag.

Cheese Cloth, Cork, Clay Jug, Moonshiner's Flag, and Alcohol recipes unlocked from a new skill Aqua Vitae which unlocks from Advanced Cooking and Distillation.

Room for other Alcohols. Hard alcohols need only to slow drain on one bile and increase another so there are quite a few combinations still left to fill. I've been told Kvass (made with Rye Bread) and Mead (made with Honey).
