Let me share an idea about a mod, which came into my mind recently. Would be interesting to hear if this kind of mods would be interesting for more people than me, so fire away with your feedback ;-).
Working Title: “Gutenberg” - Introducing the “Typographer” as a new profession
Requirements: The Typographer might require a letterpress which can be created by the carpenter and maybe he is a specialization of him. As a resource he consumes wood to create paper (another tool and additional resources might be required for that).
Function: He could have two functions. On the one hand he could print flyers which are distributed within the city and which might increase the mood of your townsfolk. Maybe could be also distributed to the “enemy” and could lower their moral… or to neutral NPCs and increase your standing with them.
The second function could be much more interesting (and was my initial idea with this class). He would be able to write down your achievements in a personal chronicle, incl. Screenshots. Depending on Stonehearth (if there is an achievement system and how it looks like), either Stonehearth or you could trigger the Typographer to add an entry into your chronicle. This should be a nice black / white kind of newspaper which you can read ingame but which you maybe can export and share with friends (e.g. as a pdf).
For sure the details would have to be worked out, but you might get the idea I am heading towards.
What do you think? Having kind of a “diary” or story of your people which you can share outside the game…
