All of these items are only available for a limited time so don't miss out!

Regarding the Orchard Kits planting a "farm plot". Is this the same size as a parcel? If not, can we please get an idea of what percentage of a parcel a farm plot is? Thanks!

Regarding the Orchard kits:

From Caspian:

"K1 and K2 are Mild
K3 is Temperate
K4 is Arid
K5 and K6 is Tropical

OCE:

K1: Mild
K2: Temperate/Arid
K3: Arid/Temperate/Tropical
K4: Tropical

K2 Shrublands is Temperate/Arid hybrid
K3 Semi-Arid Desert: Arid
K3 Bog: Temperate
K3 Grasslands: Temperate
K3 Marsh: Temperate/Tropical

However, it's biome specific. So there are some biomes in the kingdoms that don't follow those guidelines precisely."

Hey 2 questions,

  1. As a logistics guild is it worthwhile to pick up the trade post or is 3k still the best bang for the buck?

  2. Is there any mechanical value to the sister city monument?

From Snipehunter:

"You can divide a parcel into a 4 x 4 grid of farm plots, holding a total of 16 plots."

Very nice items. The orchard kits are good even for those who do not intend to farm intensively. I know a lot of people have been asking about falconry, so it's good to see that kit. A trading post seems like a dynamite way to bootstrap a single steading or hamlet into a larger settlement.
