Keep running into the situation where my Goblins run out of food and sticks by the second winter, and either starving or freezing to death. Since Goblins burn through sticks so quickly, perhaps there could be alternative, more renewable ways to produce sticks?
currently thinking that woodcutters and lumber-mills (the places that make logs and planks) could perhaps produce sticks as a byproduct of their craft. Making logs would involve breaking off branches that could become sticks, and making planks would involve cutting logs up into sections in which the waste portions could also become sticks.
Just my thoughts on the matter at least.
