The Lucky Fate Squad goes all over the lands and invites people and their leaders for a seminar. It’s located just outside of Port Unen. Notable factions and people invited (or their representatives): That old guy who showed up, Mag Buskt, Olgog the Olgog (not acting for Mag Buskt), Jamie (a.k.a. Lord Grimaldus), Lord Blake Jorn Ar’Lash of Chooru (a.k.a. Black Lorne), Yagogi’al the Og’ab tribe, Lord Mada, (the guy with the nightmare penguins), Der’al Collective, G.U.T.S, Resurgent guys of the Provincial Colonies, Krodnok (why not?), anyone else we forgot, even the UTR.
Godart gives out books, locations of where to get seeds and equipment and tries to encourage trading and sharing of knowledge. Any one who can’t show up we help with what we can and encourage them the spread the know-how.
We tell them this story:
“Normally 1,000,000 acres feeds 1,000,000 people - 1,000,000 tons of food per year
An acre is defined as 1/640 of a square mile
A million acres would be 1,562.5 sq miles
A person on average eats 1 ton (2000 lbs) of food per year, which works out to about 5.5 lbs per day”
“Most modern farming has devolved over the years and years since the first “goblin” genocides. Food is tough to come by and when Olgogs farm, they deplete to land over 5 years before it needs time to lay fallow. These are bad habits that we’ve picked up. We can break 'em and do much better. We got three examples.”
“Natural farming, the proper Olgog way is the 5 no’s:
No pulling weeds
No outside chemicals
Add some crop rotations into the mix and this is the basics that can sustain an acre of land for a good
long time. Simple to learn. Still, this doesn’t feed more than a couple of people per acre.”
“Permaculture, make the land work for you:
This is a design ecological design choice that changes the land to feed you and feed it’s self. It’s the big boys version of natural farming. By combining and layering different types of plants and animals together, you can create a whole environment design to feed lots of people per acre until the end of time. Not simple to learn and this take years to get going even with leyas and technology.”
“Agricultural engineering, brute but smart force science and leyas:
This is for the places that don’t grow nothing or are too dangerous. Useful when time is short, like now. This involves creating artificial ways to grow food and raise animals. It ranges from more than simple to very complex. Tricky to learn. You can feed a lot of people with very little space with efficient inputs. I mean a l o t. This is the way the Lucky Fate Squad grows it’s food.
Example: 1 Acre Indoor “Leafy Green Pink House” : 40,000lbs of food per day or 20 tons per day (14,600,000lbs per year or 7,300 tons per year) Meaning that it feeds 7,300 people per year.
Material and space requirements:
1 acre of space for building
knowledge of hydroponics, plumbing and electronics
17,500 ten watt “pink” led lights
175,000 watts (less than 1 MW) for power
.08 gallons of water per square foot or a total of 3 500 gallons of water per day
About 9 000 plants for lettuce, herbs and other leafy greens (grows in one month)
Good if you’re a SO-SO engineering, but… You can substitute this list with low leyas tricks that put high level leyas users to shame. Well, until the high level leyas users learn these tricks. Then it’s nuts in a good way.”
Lastly, Godart sends Igor Yerin Abulard of Dead Domes of Deldoroon in the mail some books on vertical farming and the location of a striped spaceship hulk. The cargo in stasis should have seeds and equipment they might be useful.
