- The baker is a profession for level 2.
- The baker uses flour to produce bread.
- Bread is a basic food item and satisfies 2 hunger points when eaten.
- Before you make a decision, ask your mayor if there are not too many bakers already in the town, to avoid overproduction.
- A bakery can not be sold. So changing profession or/and moving to another town cost £500 to (re)build the workshop, so decide carefully before you level up to level 2.
The trade of baker.Edit
- It is necessary to buy flour bags from the market.
- It is necessary to buy wood bushels from the market.
- The flour and wood bushels need to be put into your property inventory.
- The baker bakes this flour into bread, ready to be consumed or sold.
- 1 flour bag is used to make 3 loaves of breads.
- 1 bushel of wood is needed per 2 bags of flour.
- A baker can treat at most 12 bags of flour and 6 wood bushels in one action which gives a maximum production of 36 loaves of bread per day.
Prices and income.Edit
(NB: these figures may have been true at the time of writing: at the present day, treat them as an example of how to do the sums, and check the real average prices!)
- The average price for flour is £15.40 and for wood bushels it is £4.06
- Though free to choose the price, the price of the bread must respect a certain degree of honesty so consumer and producer can both benefit. Most of the time a loaf of bread can be sold for £6.45 but check your local prices and in the Kingdom of England prices are usually 2-5 pounds so if you live in England try to get to a port and go to a country with a steadier economy like France and you can sell bread for more then in England the crossing is usually free.
- Investment to start a full production: 12 bags of flour at £15.40 plus 6 wood bushels at £4.06. Total: £209.16.
- Income from sale of 36 loaves of bread at £6.45 each. Total £232.20.
- Daily activity income as a baker: 232.20 £ sales minus £209.16 investments. Total: £23.04 pr. day.
