Wurmpedia states in https://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Archaeology_journal: "The amount of fragments a player may find is determined by their archaeology skill and the report's quality with a minimum of 10 fragments." "Report quality dictates statue fragment count and the quality levels and numbers of the items found within the cache." Whilst I believe this is correct, I also believe there are even more factors at play, some of which may affect the TOTAL number of (any type of) fragments found. Today I uncovered some caches from fully complete reports of varying qualities. All of the following caches were uncovered on the same day using the same toon, from reports investigated by the same toon: QL of Report Total # Fragments Token in cache Abandoned In Occupied For Name of Deed 65ql 12 82ql copper 70 years, 5 months, somewhere around the year 1029 3 months Dark Wood 75ql 12 87ql seryll 56 years, 10 months, somewhere around the year 1043 2 months Corley 60ql 14 80ql brass 76 years, 2 months, somewhere around the year 1023 7 months Siren's Call 79ql 14 89ql iron 18 years, 1 month, somewhere around the year 1081 24 years, 9 months South Plains Farm 80ql 16 90ql electrum 72 years, 11 months, somewhere around the year 1027 8 months Step By Steppe 85ql 16 92ql brass 63 years, 11 months, somewhere around the year 1036 6 years, 3 months Point Lecter I have sorted these records by the TOTAL number of fragments found in each cache. If the total number of fragments in the cache was solely dependent on the skill of the player and the QL of the reports, we would expect to see a direct co-relation between the QL of the report and #Fragments columns. This is just a small sample, but whilst there could be a slight relationship, it is not conclusive. There does however appear to be a direct relationship between the report QL and the QL of the mini token produced. We definitely need more samples, so I will try to keep records of future caches. An interesting study would be to identify the contents of the caches and compare the results including and excluding statue fragments but this falls outside the scope of this small experiment! The results do not necessarily mean that Wurmpedia is incorrect in stating there is a relationship between report QL and numbers of items in cache, but rather that there may be more complex factors involved.
