Hey Joseidon1Hello there,
here comes the whaling station application. A good amount of whaling research is already in this thread (https://forum.westeroscraft.com/threads/on-ibbenese-whaling.2508/), but I'll give a short summary. The plan is that the whalers from ryamsport are whaling North of ryamsport for smaller and mid sized whales. Eld promised me a lookout tower further North in the bay, which will allert small boats which will pursue the whales, kill them and bring them to the station for processing. The whales will be dragged onto the shore where the flensing will start. During the flensing the whale blubber will be removed from the carcass. It will later be cooked to whale oil in furnaces called "tryworks" and then stored into clay pots/barrels, which will be stored in the warehouse for a short time until a merchant from vinetown or from a ship buys the oil. The oil was historically mainly used for lamp oil and machine lubricant, which both could be pretty useful in the wealthy reach region. Additionally, parts of the whale meat will be removed from the carcass and processed in a butchery, where they will be saltened and then distributed among the local whalers. The inspiration for this is the Faroese whaling. The beach has a just recently killed whale on it.
Note: A historical whaling station usually included a cooper and a smith, but these professions are already present at Ryamsport, so they will also supply the station.
The test for the station can be found elevating on my plot (/warp joseidon) next to an older version of the test.
Sorry for the long wait, this app is approved, I'll let you know when I paste it (waiting a few days before opening the new section of Ryamsport).
Also, I'm thinking we could have a whaler near the beach/on the beach.
