When you refine goods with the Industrialist embassy in the production phase, is that considered as 1 action with regards to storage?

Or to rephrase that, do you have to have all the goods you want to refine with the Industrialist embassy in your storage at the time of refining? (Or can these goods also come from buffers?)

No need to put the goods into the storage first. You can dirctly take the goods from a building.
As help: As long as the goods are not leaving the village they can be taken from everywhere. Some for sustenance. You can directly sustain from a hunting lodge for instance.
For paying fees, doing actions on the hex tiles etc. the goods are leaving the village. Thus have to come from the storage.

I'm afraid, Tim is probably remembering an older version of the rules since what he says is mostly true, just not in this case.

Rule book, page 11, Using Goods:

Quote:
Whenever you have to pay goods during an action (e.g., when building, refining goods, or paying the Fee), you must take
them from your Storage (i.e. Basic Storage and Storage Facilities).


Refining goods is an action and requires you take the goods from your storage. The Industrialist Colony lets you refine goods. Thus, you must have the input goods in your storage.

This actually goes hand in hand with Tim's neat thematic explanation of stuff being done within your community and outside. The Industrialist Colony refines the goods for you, so the input goods have to leave your community first to get there. Thus, they must come from your storage. (The ambassadors at the embassy can hardly be bothered with doing the refining for you. They're all lazy bureaucrats.)

So that means Sustenance is the only exception on the Storage rules?

Regarding the Industrialist Colony: In the appendix it states that at level two you can refine 1 wood + 2 clay into 1 bricks. Yet the colony card itself states that it requires 1 wood and 1 clay to refine into 1 bricks. We assumed that the colony card was correct, or should we follow the table in the appendix?

I'm afraid, the appendix is right on this one. Thanks for catching this.

Ah, good to know. In our discussion during play, we did find that the more balanced version, so we were actually on the right track

Thank you for clarifying.
