It’s hard to run an efficient business when you have to mine your own ore and when the trader who delivers food needs quite a bit of time to get his order in. One of my employees goes hungry and I unwisely invest in a new room too early. But after I feed and allow both my smiths to get a full meal, I manage to open the shop with a solid reserve of ore and, after hours of forge and hammer work, I make quite a bit of gold, even after dealing with a noble who’s unwilling to pay for his swords.

The concept is simple: become a blacksmith in medieval times, grow your business, deal with a looming war, and try to get the girl. All this is accomplished via a focused take on management mechanics.
