This page provides important tips on how to expand the village and deal with any issues that arise as its governor.

The most important information about rebuilding Pribyslawitz

Marius, whom you save in the Lost in the Woods quest, will assist you in expanding and developing Pribyslawitz. You can seek his advice on managing the land and instruct him to build new structures in the village. Each time you give him instructions to build something, you must visit the construction site, where Marius will check if you can afford to begin the building process.

Marius does not work for free, and in the A Place to Call Home quest, you can negotiate his salary. By default, he requests a salary with a large bonus, but if you pass the Persuasion test (aim for at least 12 points), you can offer him a smaller bonus or a basic salary.

Reconstructing Pribyslawitz will cost tens of thousands of gold pieces, so it is wise to have at least 20-30 thousand groschen in stock when starting the village expansion. The money for village expansion and operating costs is not automatically taken from Henry’s inventory. Instead, you must store it in a chest located at the provisional headquarters of the Governor (shown in the picture above). You can store gold in it without fear of theft.

Gold is needed not only for constructing new buildings but also for covering other costs, such as salaries for people working in the village. Ignoring the financial needs of the residents may cause them to stop working and lead to trouble with Sir Divish.

Initially, the village will operate at a loss, but as you build structures (such as a smithy or butcher’s office), Pribyslawitz will be able to earn money. The goal is to make each day of the village’s existence successful, meaning to end the day with a positive financial result.

The game won’t let you build all the structures in the village because some projects are mutually exclusive. The butcher’s premises and the baker’s premises, as well as the stables and the guardhouse are examples of this. You must choose the building that suits you best or the one for which you have already gathered the required resources.

There is a book (register) about the village that is a very important object in Pribyslawitz. In the register, you will find all the information about the village’s current balance. You can determine the profits/losses and how significant they are during the last periods of time.

The balance sheet is influenced not only by the buildings but also by additional factors. It may change as a result of decisions taken on disputable issues, ordering goods to the village, or a possible departure from the village by some inhabitants.

The book also allows you to get acquainted with the objectives of the current quest and to browse the available buildings. You can order the construction of new buildings by using the register. It also provides information on possible improvements that are only available for specific buildings.

As the village of Pribyslawitz expands, you will have to take into account not only the supply of gold but also the order in which the buildings are erected. Attracting experts is an optional step, as every new building has its own staff. The second issue is the materials needed to construct buildings. Gaining them is connected with the quest Resources. You must first build a house in the village and then reach the indicated places in the game world to get required raw materials.

Occasionally, minor conflicts may arise in Pribyslawitz, but they can be resolved. These situations may include conflicts such as citizens accused of poaching. It is important to make a decision that does not harm the general well-being of the village or persuade the inhabitants to leave. If a potential resident appears, invite them to settle down. It is worth saving the game before making a decision, as each situation puts you in front of a choice that may have negative consequences, such as bad relations with Sir Divish or a negative impact on the condition of the village.

Pribyslawitz is a safe village that is never attacked by bandits. The From the Ashes expansion focuses on the peaceful development of the village.

Earning Extra Money in Pribyslavitz


Once the village starts earning money, Pribyslawitz can be an unlimited source of funds. By unlocking the Contemplative perk, you can streamline the process of taking the gold from the governor’s chest. The pattern involves positioning yourself next to the chest and using the rest/wait option to jump 24 hours a day. Then, you can remove the gold and repeat the process. With the Contemplative perk, Henry will not be tired or hungry, and you can earn 1000-2000 gold for a single “jump in time”.

Essential Buildings in Pribyslavitz

When expanding Pribyslawitz, it is important to build certain buildings in a specific order. The first building to construct is the Woodcutters’ Camp, as wood reserves are required for further investments. The camp costs 2,500 gold pieces. The second important facility is the Trader’s house, which is required to advance in the Resource quest and to begin obtaining building materials. The trader’s house costs 4000 gold pieces, but a Bridge and a Road must be built first for another 4000 pieces of gold.

Once you have the Woodcutter’s Camp and the Trader’s, it’s a good idea to focus on obtaining more materials and saving up money for other constructions in your village. When choosing which buildings to construct next, it’s important to avoid rushing into constructions that don’t add anything to your village’s budget and require gold to function, like the church and the fully constructed Rathaus. Instead, prioritize buildings like The Forge, Butcher’s or Bakery (you can choose only one of these) or a Tavern, especially if your budget is small and you need to quickly start making a profit.

The List of Village Buildings That Can Be Constructed

Below is a list of the buildings that can be constructed in Pribyslavitz. Some things to keep in mind:

  1. Aside from gold, some buildings may have other requirements, such as having to construct another building first or having certain resources like grain.
  2. Place the Trader’s house in order to collect the resources needed for some buildings during the Supplies side quest.
  3. Buildings can generate income or costs – the more expensive the building, the higher the value of gold generated or spent.
  4. Some buildings can be upgraded, but never for free. Choose upgrades that are cheap and can increase your income first.
  5. Some buildings are mutually exclusive, such as the bakery or butcher’s and the stable or guardhouse. Choose according to your preferences and the materials you already have.

Temporary Rathaus

This is the basic “building” available from the start, which includes a tent with Marius, the register, a bed, and a chest for gold.

  1. Prerequisites: None
  2. Generates: Basic structure: -20 gold. You can also get a penalty for its underpaid locator (Marius).

Rathaus

This building can become your headquarters in its basic form, but don’t buy this upgrade if you’ve just started the DLC as it’s expensive and requires a lot of money to function.

  1. Prerequisites: 5,000 gold, Temporary Rathaus, Woodcutters’ Camp
  2. Generates: Basic structure: +4 citizens, -150 gold. You can also get a penalty for its underpaid locator (Marius).

Extended Rathaus

This upgrade for the Rathaus makes it even more comfortable, but it’s not important during the initial phase of rebuilding Pribyslavitz.

  1. Prerequisites: 9,000 gold, Rathaus, resources: stone.
  2. Available upgrades: Alchemy Bench – 800 gold, Herb Garden – 500 gold.
  3. Generates: Basic structure: +5 citizens, -300 gold. Alchemy Bench: -5 gold. Herb Garden: -5 gold. You can also get a penalty for its underpaid locator (Marius).

Church Basic Repairs

This is the first step in repairing the church, but prioritize buildings that generate income before rushing into church repairs.

  1. Prerequisites: 11,000 gold, Woodcutters’ Camp.
  2. Generates: Basic structure: +1 citizens, -150 gold.

Church

The second phase of rebuilding the church is more costly, so it’s recommended to consider it as the last investment. The prerequisites for this upgrade are 17,000 gold, Church Basic Repairs, and stone resources. The available upgrades are Altar for 4,000 gold and Frescoes for 3,000 gold. The basic structure generates +1 citizens but costs -300 gold. The Altar generates +2 citizens, while the Frescoes generate +2 citizens. The Forge is one of the most important income-generating buildings, providing 500 gold from the basic version without any upgrades. It’s advisable to build the Forge after the Trader’s house. The prerequisites for this building are 8,000 gold and charcoal resources. The available upgrades are Swordsmith’s Tools and Armoursmith’s Tools, both costing 2,000 gold. The basic structure generates +5 citizens and +500 gold. Swordsmith’s Tools and Armoursmith’s Tools generate +250 gold each. The Horseshoes upgrade for stables provides an additional 35 gold, while the Weapons upgrade for the garrison also provides 35 gold. The Bakery is a cheaper income-generating building, with prerequisites of 4,200 gold and grain resources. The available upgrade is Drying Shed, which costs 500 gold. The basic structure generates +4 citizens and +250 gold. The Drying Shed upgrade generates +85 gold, while the Honey cakes upgrade provides +80 gold from the beehives. The Cakes upgrade for the tavern provides an additional 50 gold. The Butcher’s building is another income-generating building with cheap upgrades. The prerequisites for this building are 4,200 gold and livestock resources. The available upgrade is Smoke House, which costs 500 gold. The basic structure generates +3 citizens and +290 gold. The Smoke House upgrade generates an additional 100 gold, while the Meat upgrade for the tavern provides an additional 70 gold. The Stables should be placed later since it’s not a cheap income-generating building. The prerequisites for this building are 5,000 gold, the Forge, and grain resources. The available upgrade is Saddler’s Equipment, which costs 2,000 gold. The basic structure generates +8 citizens and +140 gold. The Saddler’s Equipment upgrade generates an additional 70 gold, while the Horseshoes upgrade from the Forge provides an additional 35 gold. The Horses upgrade for the merchant provides an additional 120 gold. The Guardhouse doesn’t need to be built immediately since there won’t be any bandit attacks. The prerequisites for this building are 5,000 gold, the Forge, and the Tavern. The available upgrade is Archery Range, which costs 1,000 gold. The basic structure generates +13 citizens and +110 gold. The Archery Range upgrade generates an additional 50 gold, while the Weapons upgrade from the Forge provides an additional 35 gold. The Tavern customers upgrade provides an additional 150 gold. The Trader’s building is one of the most important buildings since it allows buying resources from other NPCs. The prerequisites for this building are 4,000 gold, the Bridge, and the Road. The basic structure generates +3 citizens and +50 gold, while the Cart horses upgrade provides an additional 120 gold. The Tavern is a larger and more expensive building that should be constructed after placing the cheaper buildings. The Tavern has several upgrades, some of which are related to other buildings, making it the most profitable construction in Pribyslavitz.

  1. To start building, you need 8,000 gold and resources such as stone and grain.
  2. You can upgrade with the Brewery for 2,000 gold or Dice Games for 1,000 gold.
  3. Basic structure generates +15 citizens and +500 gold. Brewery generates +300 gold, Dice Games +200 gold, Meat banquet +70 gold, Excellent cakes +50 gold, Mead +100 gold, and Thirsty soldiers +150 gold.

Bridge and Road

Bridge and Road should be constructed immediately after starting this DLC to build Trader’s house.

  1. You need 4,000 gold, a Temporary Rathaus, and a Woodcutters’ Camp to build the basic structure, which generates -20 gold.

Woodcutters’ Camp

Start with the Woodcutters’ Camp first, then focus on Bridge and Road, and finally Trader’s house.

  1. You only need 2,500 gold and a Labourers’ Camp (which is automatically fulfilled). The basic structure generates +10 citizens and -150 gold. Beasts of burden generate +60 gold.

Beehives

Although Beehives cost money, you can combine them with a Tavern and Bakery to provide honey and generate income.
