[edit] Mandates

Bismuth items (not bismuth bronze, but bismuth itself) can be mandated. Obviously this mandate can only be fulfilled by smelting bismuthinite. If you don't have a granite layer and one of your nobles likes bismuth then you'd better request bismuthinite stones (not blocks) from the liaison.--Another 17:31, 28 September 2008 (EDT)

I still like the execution bridge. --GreyMaria 22:01, 28 September 2008 (EDT)
My tax collector just mandated three bismuth items. My first thought: It's winter and I don't have any bismuth, so getting any would be impossible. My second thought: Making items out of bismuth is impossible anyway. I don't want to kill the tax collector, but I don't have many metalworkers and I don't know if they could survive a hammering.--Pyrite 18:38, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Execute the tax collector. They'll just send another one, and then you won't have failed to complete a mandate. --Squirrelloid 19:34, 16 December 2008 (EST)
He seems to have rethought his mandate, and dropped it without anyone having to see the hammerer. Maybe he noticed I was staring at the door to his room... First time I've seen a production mandate go away without being fulfilled or leading to consequences.--Pyrite 23:53, 16 December 2008 (EST)
From what I understand, you can make bismuth items as easy as with any other ore stone, by removing it from the prohibited list of economic items. But yeah, mandates for using it are tremendously annoying. -Fuzzy 09:47, 17 December 2008 (EST)
Wouldn't that make Bismuthinite goods instead of Bismuth though?LegacyCWAL 22:05, 24 January 2009 (EST)
