A pretty image showing the temple of relics starts the video today. Every day in Forge of Empires should start with collecting productions, restarting them, and to use the forge points that generated over night.
It is always great to make the city's building space a bit bigger. Each single expansion helps.
Today will be a great day as we will build our first great building. The story questline requires us to collect 100 supplies. In return a blueprint for the Oracle of Delphi is offered. For constructing a residential building we receive a second blueprint and a third for producing two flacons. Another one is given to us for the research of a technology. Even 2 blueprints are offered for a banana. Bananas in the Iron Age? In deed this is a question that you can find often in the web: Where will I get bananas from in Forge of Empires? You simply produce them in the fruit farm. The old Romans definitely did not have the possibility to do that, but you have and then you have a total of 6 blueprints.
Next we invite a friend. That is already enough. It is not necessary that this player accepts the invitation to get this quest completed. This is rewarded with blueprint number 7.
Now we motivate and polish a bit. This is what happens randomly when you press the 'aid' button in your friendslist. This makes our set of Oracle blueprints to be nearly complete.
The last blueprint we receive for selling a building. Selling a street would be enough, but I decide for the hunter as this also creates the required space to build that great building. Our reward is 20 forge points, which I invest into research in the technology tree.
A side quest requires us to log in the game using the app. I do so immediately, using this opportunity to do something that is not possible easily on the desktop. I write a message to all my friends, begging them for spending 5 forge points each for the construction site of my new great building. They will get this investment back as a sponsor bonus as soon as the first level is completed. As soon as the message is sent out, I switch back to the browser version. Now I have to wait until my Oracle is filled. Of course I will have to provide the remaining 10 forge points on my own.
While waiting, I try to find a guild to join without requiring an application and granting at least 1 forge point. I find such a guild in the top 10 of all guilds. I join the guild MAYHEM and collect from my town hall, receiving that extra forge point for being a member. Then I help all other members of that guild and leave the guild again.
In the meantime my Oracle has been filled completely. I will keep it on that level, not planning to upgrade my first great building further more.
Also today, I again can expand my tavern a bit. This time it is a bigger table.
This was our last day in the Bronze Age. Tomorrow, on our 5th day in the game, we will move forward to the Iron Age.
