comment What percentage of NPC missions are non-combat?
I tried going by agent job titles, but even folk with innocent-sounding titles (e.g. Administrator, accountant) wanted me to go blow something up. Is there a good way to search out the "right" NPCs?

Ah, I didn't know that exporting had any effect aside from the trade itself.

comment How do I make mud?
I have tried the bucket farm method, and the flooding method, and I feel that flooding is much easier and faster for creating farm swaths of almost any size. Just be careful to control your flood. Also, I believe that opening a tile to the sky makes that an "outside" tile forever, which would mean you could only grow "outside" plants on that tile. This could be an advantage or disadvantage.

Yes, I have far more stuff to sell than I need to buy, but I still feel compelled to try and get that "perfect deal".

comment How to train/retrain dwarves?
Note that because he's not trained, your new woodcutter will not be as skilled as one who has been chopping since you first struck the earth. For many things, skill == speed, but it also affects things like quality of crafts.
