When I read @Atralane 's post about Curators it got me thinking. If our stonehearth’s towns had a culture rate similar to that of Civilizations culture. By having things like Museums, Statues, Libraries, Schools, Music, Great Art etc. it would increase your culture rate. By having a higher culture it would increase the amount of people who would move into your settlement. It would also increase your citizens overall happiness.
Since all good things have negatives, the higher your culture gets, the more often attacks come. As well as a higher thief rate.
