Thread: What to do with all this stone?

  1. #1

    Question What to do with all this stone?

    Has anyone figured out the best use of provinces that contain the stone resource? Yes, stone lowers the cost of all your buildings in that province, but since it's strategically smart to build your troop production centers in provinces that give troop bonuses (i.e., provinces with blacksmith, artisan or shrine), I haven't figured out a rationale for building big, expensive buildings in provinces with stone. Thoughts?

    A stone and a port are a perfect match because all that stone will be exported and you gain money out of it. If you have stone inland, make sure you build the best roads available to link the quarry to the nearest port.

    it allows you to build certain buildings. things like the fortress and citadel are not available without stone.

    its also a valuable export.

    I understand these (excellent) points, but my question is really about what to build in the stone-rich province itself. The reduced cost of buildings doesn't translate to other provinces, and yet I can't think of a good reason to build expensive buildings in the province with stone.

    If its the Chosokabe one_nothing :)

    After you upgrade the resource and build roads it just has no use. Maybe put a 1st level market there?

    Depends what clan. The Chosokabe province that has stone in it, it's with a port, but at the same time I suggest you build a market in it and upgrade it, place a metsuke inside, upgrade your farm, road and port and make sure you reap the rewards. After the market you build whatever you wish in it, perhaps a Yari Drill Yard with a Buddhist Temple.

    Making any resource producing city a center for commerce (market+sake den) is not a bad idea, but I'd rather go all out with troop production if you have nothing better like blacksmith. For example I make Iron producing cities troop recruitment centers with barracks to further reduce the cost of troops. Following that logic you should build most expensive buildings to a province with stone.
