The Production Background

The Production background is used to represent unique or particularly outstanding resources that can be used to generate significant benefits over time, based on investment. Production may be used to temporarily depleat one other background type, in order to generate another. The new background is generally available indefinitely, but it is disposable in a way that backgrounds purchased with experience generally are not.

Examples include:

  • A factory cathedral, which may be used to convert Resource dots into Artifact dots, as basic materials are built into wonders.
  • A stupendously rich mine, which may be used to convert Backing dots into Resources dots, as underlings mine precious materials for sale.
  • An orichalcum Essence-harvester, which may be used to convert Manse dots into Cult dots, as installing the device temporarilly deactivates the Hearthstone but permanently creates a secondary Essence-font directed to the Hearthstone's owner.
  • A miraculous waterfall, which may be used to convert Followers dots into Allies does, as its waters bless mortals with a potent-but-fragile Essence-enlightenment.

The base rating for Production is the maximum out-put it will generate. The basic in-put required is one level greater than the out-put, so a basic Production 3 mine requires Backing 4 to generate at most Resources 3. That rating may be modified as follows:

+* Increase the out-put to in-put ratio by one (from 5->4 to 4->4, for instance) - this benefit may be purchase up to 3 times.

+* Add an additional out-put type - this benefit may be purchased multiple times.

+* Add up to two additional in-put types - this benefit may be purchased multiple times.
