|“||The contents of the previous three scrolls, in a compact roll for easy transport.||”|
Gaanv ka Mukhiya: Village Chief. This rich man employs the majority of the village and owns most of the land, and so faces little difficulties in getting "chosen" as leader.
Rajput Senapati: Rajput General. From a distinguished Rajput family line, he oversees the defense of his village from the security of his fort. If he can get enough work out of the villagers, his fort will become a mighty fortress.
Mahilaa kisaana: Peasant. These lower-class women perform difficult and thankless tasks such as tending the fields, delivering food and tools, and interacting with the player. Without them, the village would grind to a halt.
Malkin: Rich women. Their gold-embroidered saris are only matched by their reluctance to do any work.
Kisaana: Peasant. These poor men aspire to raising their own chickens one day, but for now are forced to construct buildings, produce bricks for the village, and tend the fields with their wives.
Lakarhara: Lumberman. These dedicated men, with their imposing beards, tend the village groves.
Khanik: Miner. These men spend their day in the quarry, performing back-breaking labour. Unlike their Norman brethren, they don't even have the comfort of a visit to a tavern at the end of the day.
Rajput Sainik: Rajput soldier. These men were raised as military men and have been trained to fight since childhood. Their role is to defend the village - and be careful, because they take it seriously.
Loohaar: Smith. Their profession might not be the most prestigious, but what would the villagers do without their tools?
Sena ka Loohaar: Army Smith. These military blacksmiths are specialized in the smithing of weapons and armour; difficult work, but more rewarding than making farming implements.
Muurtikaar: Sculptor. As both artists and craftsmen, they have the great honour of crafting the statues which adorn the temple.
Pandit: Priests. Born to Brahmin families, these wise men serve as priests to their villages. Their endless knowledge of Sanskrit hymns is matched by their endless refusal to do actual work.
Larki / Larka: Girl / Boy. Live with their parents until they are old enough to be considered youth.
Kishori / Kishor: Youth (F/M). Still young, but old enough to have their own profession and household once they move into their own home.
Mukhiya ka Ghar : The chief's house. This brick house serves as a home for the chief and his wife, as well being the village center. The many chests are there to collect the generous "contributions" of the villagers.
Qila : Fort. This small brick tower can be transformed into a powerful fortress by the Rajput general who lives there. It aids in controlling the surrounding area and centralizing the peasants' property.
Kisan ka Ghar : Peasant's house. A simple building made of sun-dried bricks, this modest house can be expanded to accommodate a chicken pen and a terrace for rest and relaxation.
Lakarhara ka Ghar : Lumberjack's house. Crafted from wood by the woodcutter, and upgraded with cooked bricks, this home only grows more beautiful with time.
Sikaar : Quarry. A simple hole dug down to the deeper rock. It's here that the miner extracts the rock and sandstone required by the village.
Bhati : Forge. The day-to-day tools of the village are made here by the smith; his anvil is nearly as close to his heart as his wife.
Sena ka Bhati : Military forge. The armoury, constructed of sandstone, houses both blades, armor, and the smith who crafted them.
Muurtikaar ka Ghar : Sculptor's house. This little house has an attached workshop in which the sculptor transforms rock and sandstone into statues of Hindu gods.
Sainik ka Ghar : Soldier's house. Made of solid stone, this cottage houses a fierce Rajput warrior and his wife.
Pandit ka Ghar : Priest's house. This beautiful house, more elaborate than those of the peasants, houses a priest and his wife, each as idle as the other.
Inta bhatta : Brick kiln. This building is essential to any Indian village. Here, bricks are prepared, either by leaving them to dry in the sun, or after the addition of an oven, baking them.
Kunja : Grove. Carefully maintained by the lumberjacks, groves serve as the primary source of wood for the village. The rich soil and the careful ministrations of the lumberjacks help the trees to regrow much faster than normal.
Puraalekhagar : Temple archives. It is here where the priest and his wife keep all of their gossip and secret information on all of the other villagers.
Dhaan : Rice paddy. Rice, an essential staple - what good cuisine doesn't involve rice?
Masaalaa udyaana : Spice garden. Turmeric grows here easily through the attention of the village wives - and it's just as well, because the village's food would be extremely bland without it!
Gannaa baagaana : Sugar plantation. You can't make good rasgullas without sugar, and there's no better expression of affection amoung villagers.
Gaanv ka Mandir : Village temple. This beautiful building is a testament to the faith and piety of the villagers, or possibly to the influence the priest has over them. Three statues carved by the sculptor adorn a finished temple.
|Denier. For reasons unexplained by historians, Indian villages use denier as their currency, just like Norman villages. Three types of denier exist: bronze, silver worth 64 bronze, and gold worth 64 silver.|
Rice. A staple food for the villagers, rice can be purchased from the village. By itself, it has no flavor, and cannot be eaten by the player. The village children grow faster if they have rice at home.
Turmeric. This powdered spice is obtained by grinding the root of the turmeric plant. It is a necessary ingredient in curries. As with rice, its presence accelerates the growth of children.
Vegetarian curry. Prepared by combining a portion of rice with a portion of turmeric, this simple curry restores two hearts.
Chicken meat. Obtained by farmers who own a poultry pen, chicken meat is used to prepare delicious murgh curries. Indian children who have it grow up more quickly. It can be eaten raw, but will only restore half a heart.
Murgh curry. Murgh curry is prepared by combining rice, turmeric, and chicken. This delicacy restores a substantial four hearts.
Rasgulla. This dessert made of fried cheese and sweet syrup is prepared by village women using sugar cane. Purchased by the player, it will restore one heart, and stacks to eight. Eaten by couples in the village, it increases the chances of conceiving a child. No, you can't have any more details.
