Dragon Horde

    @halfgiant said in Dragon Horde:

    So a few times now in game the DaermaDM has referenced the Laputan’s lack of expansion over many many years to the island nations, and other continents because they have hit a resource constraint on manacite. (Correct me if this is wrong, or i misunderstood)

    I can only assume they have the ability to scan for manacite some how, or do they still actively look for deposits on their continent? The reason i bring this up is they complete overlooked or didn’t see the 4000 year old vein (dragon’s couch). I’m curious if this is because thier ability to detect manacite is limited to refined manacite and they couldn’t see the raw stuff - or the dragon’s abode masked it from their scans?

    Or something else?

    The presence was masked.

    Inquiring Artificer’s want to know.


    Refined - High quality - 50 pounds
    Refined - Average quality 250 pounds
    Raw - 4000 year old vein (dragon’s couch)

    Is it age that defines quality of manacite?

    Did you ever find your notes on the ore breakout?


    Discussion, pasted below found here

    Self recharging will recharge at a rate of 1 spell point per hour.
    Non-self recharging will recharge at a rate of 1 spell point per week.

    Self recharging costs about 10 times a non self recharging to create due to the cost of the denser manacite.

    I have still to set costs for manacite…

    From above … “Raw - 4000 year old vein (dragon’s couch)”

    So how much would a 4000 year old vein translate to in terms of refined manacite weight?

    Manacite ore weighs about 150 pounds per cubic foot no matter its age. The older it is the more hard it is as it is becoming more crystal like although it is still stone.

    There is no exact conversion to refined weight.

    Using Gold Vein deposit information found here as a reference.

    Vein deposits include most gold mines, many large silver mines and a few copper and lead-zinc mines…

    Veins range in thickness from a few centimetres to 4 metres, the average mining width being around 1.2 metres (e.g. at Bridge River). They can be several hundreds of metres long and extend to depths in excess of 1,500 metres. Mineralization commonly occurs in shoots within the vein structures. These may be up to 150 metres in strike length, 30 metres in width and greater than 250 metres vertical.

    How wide was our Dragons behind, to be relaxing on such a nice couch?

    Manacite is not metal ore. It is stone that has changed.

    It is mined along with the stone it is formed in, typically located with the use of divination spells.

    Refining can happen more than one way. The dwarven mountain, in which you let Dregnoth ruin their garbage disposal, uses a solutoin of liquefied mana, among other things, in the refining process.

    @daermadm @dwarf What did we find during CabinCon (besides the Axe of Dwarvish Lords)? In terms of Loot from the Fallen Dwarven Kingdom.
