As the title says: I imagine (maybe one day …) we could have an “upgraded” miner(?) who can assemble a party with 1 footman and 1 assistant(?) then go for an expedition (at a predefined place or imaginary = just disappear for some time, i.e. simulates that is on a mission, though it would be much better to draw a rectangle and make them “explore” the site!)
They can : excavate and find dinosaurus bones, which then can be (puzzle-like) collected and assembled in the City museum! or maybe find other useful artefacts, which can have trophy value OR be used to enchant/improve existing equipment/skills of professions, rare ingredients for cooking and … here we’re limited only by our imagination.
Well, I wish … :))
