Re: Has anyone read Encyclopaedia Dagudashaag?

You can use architectural magazines for plans for homes and offices.

You could use maps of existing cities, and rename streets.

1. Two hundred tonne free trader.

2. Detachable bridge seems an obvious upgrade, which is probably the only thing I find interesting in this design.

Re: Who Would Spec A Budget Power Plant?

It's the labour involvement primarily, not just the aesthetic effect.

Kids handweaving an intricate pattern on a large carpet.

Women chewing leather until their teeth wear down to create soft leather for moccasins.
