Back to business. I've been sitting on this for a day and a half, and I'd like to get it going.
Certain frustrations with this table forced a new analysis of the wood algorithm (which has been my problem these past weeks), but I think I have it solved now. I will have to repost the previous tables, since the prices for wood are now slightly adjusted upwards across the board. I'm a little happier with how it lets be 'build' things.
None of the things on this table will cause any great stir, I think, but for those people who like to get gritty about their homes, this should be good. Establishing how big a mess hall should be, for instance, by virtue of the number of tables that can be fit inside it, with the number of men each table will serve. From the mess hall one can work out the size of the kitchen - based on the necessary number of cooks needed to serve a set number of men in a set period of time - and from both of those the size of the whole castle. If, as I say, grit is your thing.
Naturally, the item I'm most proud of is the four-poster bed. It's nice to see it come out at a price which suits my preconceptions (not that those preconceptions affected the math), particularly since Transylvania is thick with furniture manufacturing and has plenty of wood. The same bed in a desert environment would be considerably more costly - though the linen for the canopy and drapes would be cheaper.
If anyone can think of something that truly needs to be on the list, for general purposes and not just from interest, I'd appreciate a heads up. I can't think of everything.
