I suggest that a Baker class be added to Stonehearth. Bakers would require a rolling pin (crafted by the Carpenter) and would have the ability to turn various food items into baked goods. The baker has two ‘stations’, one is a table (made by the carpenter) and the other either an oven or the campfire.
This would require the introduction of wheat or a similar grain crop as a farmable crop in order to create the items.
Items which the baker could create would include:
- Hard Loaf: 1 wheat
- Rich Loaf: 3 wheat
- Pumpkin pie: 2 wheat, 1 pumpkin
- Berry pie: 2 wheat, 1 berry basket
- Hard Biscuit: (portable food!) 1 wheat for 4
The baker would make the raw version and then set it on the campfire to bake. After a while, it could deposit it in a stockpile (a bit odd) when cooked.
Potentially, if Radiant decides to change their mind about ‘intermediate’ items, the baker could create flour first when crafting a loaf of bread for example if needed, and then create the particular item. One would not have to specifically say: Craft Flour. Instead, it should happen automatically if the baker requires it. A Miller could in turn be added who could mill wheat into ‘Rich Flour’ which could be made into better items.
