Tanah-Chook (Guide)

What needs work: Unclear if all wait options reduce a menace or just the one in the House of Exertion


There are three locations within the Republic. The Main Marketplace serves as the central hub, and from there one can travel to the House of Exertion and the Great Library of Tanah-Chook. From those locations, one can only travel back to the Main Marketplace. From all locations, however, one can choose to stop exploring the Republic and return to zee.

The structure of life within the Republic is highly structured, as benefits those without excessive physical structure. There are four types of activities, and each causes Time Passing (Time) to increase. Regular activities will cause one to become more knowledgeable about File:scandal.png The Ways of a Minor Republic (Ways), which one can cash out at trade in activities.

Grandfatherclock.png Time Scandal.png Ways Results
regular +200 +5 E 0.5 of an item
trade in +200 -20 E 8.5 of two items
wait/travel +100 (not always shown) possible menace removal
sleep =900

Note that the actual Time Passing ranges in game have been changed to reflect values actually accessible to the player. (That is, 900-1259 has been changed to 900-1200 since no activity advances Time Passing by less than 100).

EPA Analysis[edit]

It's not entirely clear why an enterprising zee-captain would want to seek economic gain in such a place, but the maximum theoretical EPA is 1.75. This is achievable by immediately moving to the House of Exertion and staying there until one has enough Ways to cash out twice. Of course, there is the opportunity cost going to visit, but perhaps one has great need of Mourning Candles...
