It is important to understand the conceptual difference between Players, LPCs and Activities.
  • A Land Plot is a geographic entity. It is the elementary geographic unit where Activities happen. 1 Land Use Activity occupies 1 Land Plot
  • Players may choose to occupy or not the Land Plots they have access to with Land Use Activities
  • A Role defines a set of possible Activities, as well as objectives and initial resources.
  • A Player is holding 1 Role during a game session. It is possible to have several Players holding the same Role (having access to the same possible activities, several farmers for instance).
  • During the game, Players can invest in Activities defined by their Role, and then once they have acquired to an Activity (once the necessary investment has been made), they can play this Activity on 1 Land Plot they have access to.
