Simple question. In general for the early to mid-game, would you rather be building aristofarms on plains for 3 2 or cottages for 1 1 1 , with the potential to grow to 5 ? For what it's worth, a plains aristofarm is equivalent to a Lighthouse'd Lanun coastal tile at 3 2 . Assume you're not elves/bannor/kurios, but any other race (including Calabim) will do... is it a straight rule for you to build one or the other, or do you sometimes use both? When do you use each one? You can include Financial or whatever other traits/scenarios to argue one or the other.
