Hi there!

After reading the rulebook, I have no idea how to produce/get ore or alpacas?
The only thing i could find is that there are characters who already have ore or alpaca at the beginning and that there are extensions, whre you can get them.
Did i overlook some important deatail?

I'm grateful for fast help. Want to play the game tonight! Thanks!

Another way would be to get one of the boats for ore/alpacas, they'd each give you one

Only Farmer can produce Alpaca by using Food.
Miner can produce Ore by using Food.

Other than those 2 role actions, the only possibility to produce those goods are extensions. There is listing of available extensions on page 12 of rulebook.

Extensions are bought by visiting Market and paying it's cost.

Keep in mind that player characters in this game are somewhat asymetrical and in most cases there is no need to produce all kind of goods. Instead focus on what your character can do best and cheaper than others. However extensions can sometimes give you new option.

Also take a look on cocoa extensions as none of starting abilities and actions let you do it and it's very usefull.

And yes, buying boats of your choice gives you 1 tile of specific good.

This is incorrect. The farm produces food, wool and cloth. The mine produces stone and silver. Alpaca can be used to produce food, wool and cloth (latter two need a food too). The mine produces stone with 2 food and silver with ore and food.

Think you may have mixed those up a bit.

You misunderstood "Farmer" (starting role) with "Farm" (location) and "Miner" (starting role) with "Mine" (location).

The starting roles have role-specific actions that produce these goods
