An alternate version: "Place 3 stone on 3 empty spaces on your farm. You receive the stone when you plow those spaces."

I think I prefer my first version, but this would give it something visual.

I like the alternate version, but then that limits the card to only 3 Stone and makes you plan your fields first. So I guess it would weaken the card. Therefore maybe keep as is.

You could strengthen the alternate version by saying "Place 3 stone on 3 empty spaces on your farm. These spaces now count as Used. If you plow these fields, you receive the stone."

The reason I limited it to 3 stone in the alternate version is that the alternate could give all three stone for one use of the Riding Plow, whereas the original only pays 1 stone/use. tacticus

i like the original version. i good plow is already a strong card and the alternate version makes it even stronger. i like rewarding the guy/girl without a plow who keeps plowing away anyway. i also like that the original doesn't benefit field watchman, which is obviously strong and already combo with lots of cards. hunter

Agree with hunter. This version is the best. hala

Why does this require 3 occupations?

If you remove the requirement and the vp, this will reward early plowing

Or is there a thematic reason I'm totally missing?

There is no thematic reason for occupation requirements in general.

I don't like free cards without prerequisites, particularly free cards without prerequisites that can give you 5+ stone. Feel free to suggest an alternate prerequisite or cost.

Well, the most common play style is to plow 0 fields before round 9 and have at least 3 occs by then. This card rewards exactly that playing style, which isn't necessarily a good thing imo

I did vote yes, but I'm just on a mission against high occ requirements

Yeah, you make a good point. I'll mull it over. I don't want this to be purely free, and I'd rather not put an actual cost on it either, so I need an alternate prerequisite. tacticus
