Cbox

Cbox is short for chatbox and apparently it is the newest thing on blogs. I've just posted mine on this blog and it's also at http://xenina.cbox.ws/. I used to use xchat, but this chatbox seems much cleaner and I'm all for that.

It's totally free to setup at http://www.cbox.ws. I think I like it.

Cow Ranching Tutorial

Up to four cows are available for each ranch. Each cow costs 45 pounds to purchase from the Sheriff.
When nourished every day, cows should maintain weight or improve it, but as they get older their growth becomes unpredictable. Cows can be milked every three days and slaughtered at any time for their meat.

Cow Facts and Costs Sheet

1) Breeding: Some counties do not breed cows. Check with your Town Hall to see if your county has cows.
2) Costs: Cow ranching can be costly. I do not suggest it as a first or even second field. Also, you should really be able to remember to feed your cows EVERY day. If you do not, you will lose your profit and your ranch will actually COST you money to operate.
a. Here are items you'll need. (These are worst-case costs because buckets don't break with every single use and knives break 1/3 uses):
Cows ________ 4 X 45
Buckets ______ 4 X 38-43 pounds
Knives _______ 4 X 14-15 pounds
Milkers_______ 4 X 19-25 pounds (Milkers should have 20+ intelligence, so you should hire for more than 19)
Slaughterers__ 4 X 15-19 (If your cow does not HAVE to die today, you can hire for 15, but make sure you don't mess up your milking days.)
Suggested Investment Capital = 500 pounds.


c. Make sure you get milkings or slaughters when you should or you could lose capital or an animal.

d. Consider investing in your buckets and knives before purchasing your animals. If you can't find buckets and/or knives, place a note in the forum or ask the mayor for help.

3) Selling:
a. Milk will sell cheaper in fishing towns (both milk and fish give intelligence). As with anything else it is a free market item and varies in price a LOT.

b. HC prices should coordinate with HHW prices. An HC is double an HHW.
4) Yields:
You get about:
=> 8*4=32 bottles of milk
=> 3*4=12 hc (Your HC will vary greatly. Some cows will be skinny when slaughtered. Most will never get as fat as normal.)

(This schedule is based on the Breeding of Cows guide in the Renaissance Kingdoms Forums.)
1.day => Purchase of 4 cows for 180-200 pounds
2.day =>
3.day =>
4.day => hire a worker to milk your cows for 19-25 pounds
5.day => (+8 bottles of milk)
6.day =>
7.day => hire a worker to milk your cows for 19-25 pounds
8.day => (+8 bottles of milk)
9.day =>
10.day => hire a worker to milk your cows for 19-25 pounds
11.day => (+8 bottles of milk)
12.day =>
13.day => hire a worker to milk your cows for 19-25 pounds

15.day => hire a worker to slaughter a cow for 16-18 pounds (+3 hc)
16.day => hire a worker to slaughter a cow for 16-18 pounds (+3 hc)
17.day => hire a worker to slaughter a cow for 16-18 pounds (+3 hc)
18.day => Purchase of 4 cows (+3 hc)

Schedule #2:

Cow Schedule Two


Additional Variables

  • Zero intelligence required for slaughtering.
  • 20 + intelligence required for milking.
  • Wages differ from town to town.
