Hi, I'm new and I've just created my deed but I have a problem because when I've created my mine I've discovered (thanks to the live map mod that I've installed because is linked in the useful links topic) that I have a long wide tunnel under my deed, probably someone owned that spot before and then leaved. So when I try to go near the ores I cant mine because it say that a dangerous side shaft could emerge. There is no sign of a mine entrance, I've only found a rock tile near water but is away from the spot where I opened my mine.
Because of that I was thinking to disband and move away but I want to know if the deed cost will be free even if I've already created my first deed.
As long as you have not spent any silver expanding your deed, you will not lose any money. You can disband and create the free sized deeds multiple times; which is useful for people who want to have a temporary settlement while they look for their final site.
Any silver you spend on expanding a deed is lost when that deed is disbanded.
You will then need to make a new deed stake. Carving knife on shaft as I remember. (Been a long time since I made one.)
Tip: Reduce the size of the deed to the minimum size of 5x5x5x5 so that disbanding is faster.
