We are in the midst of our first campaign, core box only, and I'm wondering if I've missed something about endeavors. It just doesn't seem like there are very many options for spending them.

We just finished LY 4 (so we fought the butcher, which was not pretty). The only buildings we have are Lantern Hoard, Skinnery, Organ Grinder, Bone Smith, and Catarium. The endeavor opportunities I see are (1) innovate, or the bottom ability on the revised Lantern Hoard (but we don't have Symposium yet), (2) build a weapon crafter, leather worker, or stone circle, (3) use the augury on Organ Grinder... and that's it?

We don't have any gear with endeavor opportunities, nor do we have any innovations with endeavor opportunities (except maybe the bloodletting? can't recall). I assume some events may have opportunities, but we haven't seen any.

So, what do people do with all of those endeavors? After our Butcher massacre, we came back to camp with 9 endeavors to spend, and zero resources (thanks to the Butcher). We decided to just use the augury 9 times, but that seemed weird.

Augury seems to take up the most endeavors for my campaigns, but more innovations add endeavor options as well. There are several events that use them, too.

Augury is very important. You will need those people.

Yeah, auguries and innovations are the most common.

Later on,

drums, nightmare training, shrine, smelting

are also common and valuable ones.

In LY 4.. your endeavour options are indeed limited. in a few years, combination of settlement events, scripted events, inovations, other stufff..... you will be endeavor starved. Keep playing!

And Leathermaking, and also trying to extract that damn Guidepost (!) and some Bloodletting or other Endeavors for "free" insanity. And, don't forget to use the patched Lantern Hoard for the Share Experience!

Thanks, everyone! It's nice to confirm we're on the right track. The Butcher encounter kind of threw us all for a loop.
