 Nice guide - thank you!   Do I understand correctly there are only the 2 discoveries available from the quests?  When a player has both discoveries, is there any value in doing more quests?Question

I finally got Block and Tackle in my capital today after, yes, a trade quest. Only took 9 weeks. Wink

Block and tackle will be gained from trade type quests.
Remember, chances of getting the discoveries are randomized.  I was one of the last people to get the first discovery when they first came out, sans everyday newbies.

Ironically, after about 8 weeks of doing both types of quests, my capital has Inquisitive Populace but not Block and Tackle. My second city, after about 4 weeks, got both on the same day...same level tavern as my capital. My newer cities have only been doing quests for a couple weeks (same tavern level), and no discoveries. So, in my experience, Inquisitive Populace was the easier of the two to get.

That Diplomatic Discovery is hard to get.  I've been wondering if it is easier for smaller cities to earn it vs. larger cities.

I've also heard people say that the higher the level your tavern is, the more quickly you'll get these discoveries. This may be true, but I have no proof unless a GM would like to confirm it.

Recently, I saw GM SC on GC mention that higher taverns have a better chance at discoveries.

I believe Trade Discoveries are earned by Trade Quests and Diplomatic Discoveries are earned by Diplomatic Quests.

I have experienced almost the opposite of the above (higher level taverns = higher rate of discovery).  I believe at some point, they tweaked the rate at which the diplomatic discovery is made to roughly nil.
