Defender, cheers mate, all good suggestions there, I have put them on a list, especially the one about the cheeseburger and pint.  The prices are similar here in the U.K. so perhaps a veggie burger, or a curry, or even just a pint.  The fact that folks say they appreciate my software is a huge motivation in itself.  And o of course cheese, I do like cheese, though it is difficult to find.  and danielpicard if you have read this far,spoilers

wanda says she lost her ring on the bridge

and her toad in the flooded fields
end of spoilers
The ring is needed for some game endings and I do wish I had given a more specific clue in the game about the ring, the staff of course is relatively easy to find.  Hope anyone stuck did not find this too frustrating.

Awesome, thank you for taking those suggestions into account, here are a couple more.
it'd be nice if you'd get a turn of reprieve after the outlaws ariving are announced, as their is no reason to have anyone in the lookout post before that and you may need to shift your people around... Meaning you could be attacked suddenly with no chance to find out.
I wish the game would present dialogs like the start screen and events as a list instead of a scroller, because you can't go back up, and unless their is some background code I don't know about, it could be pretty variable depending on speech rate with the auto scrolling.
Just something at the bottom that says press enter to continue or something would work fine I think, that way you wouldn't miss it.

@defender I worked out pretty quick that the arrival of the outlaws comes with in a set time so after I think it's likely to happen I put people in the watch tower.
I can see your point though. like with the weather, first day you don't know what the weather will be like. but:

Ah I see is it like 10th day then?
And can you believe that if I want to give Rocky 7.5 pounds, than I need to pay 16 CAD if I want to spare him the fees? It'd be even worse if he wasn't a charity or if I was using a card to do it? I understand that processing takes money to run servers and use bank systems and such, but holy crap... The 3 dollar currency fee especially pisses me off!

Defender, I think the fees are all at my end when you hit the paypal button and bad though it is, its only like max 5% and the percentage goes down above 10 quid.  If you find there is a fee at your end please let me know as I would not be happy with those paypal people.  Did you know there is an ongoing story in a list just like you suggested, if you miss anything then just press o for ongoing story, which you can scroll upwards to get the latest story line.  Its in game day order.  Yes that first day of outlaw activity can catch you out, they usually rock up on day 4, 5 or 6, but I will put in a days grace in my next code tweak.  Bit like the first days sunshine.

it's a 3 cad currency conversion fee of death, which I'm quite sure doesn't get refunded.

Here's something I just thought of a few minutes ago.
Would it be possible to have the number row act as like a shortcut to assign workers? EG press 1-0 for 1 to 10 workers without having to press enter. Of course, this'd only be useful if you want to assign that many, but would save you having to press enter on every individual building.
Okay, last record I'm gonna try for... 94 days, stressful, red dragon. Do not ask how I managed it, lol because I honestly don't know either... luck? But I got Wanda the first day, so prioritized her quests. Then the dragon came later than usual, around day 45. I'd also focused on getting many, many more people than I usually do, and built the king's house for the gold. So basically by the time the dragon came, I'd already been at around something like 9 rubies and 6 gems. Didn't take long, so I actually had extra by the time it was time for the outlaws and wolves.

@157 I kind of like that idea with the numbers. I can see how that would be useful. only problem is the fields can take up to 20 workers each so 1 through 0 wouldn't work there. I guess shift+1 through 0 could work to go for double digits.
ok an edit, I just realised the guard house can take 25 workers.

More new entries are on the way, but I wanted to give Dragon village the recognition it deserves for being such an awesome game.

thankyou Dark.  Reading your wonderful description in the DB, made me rather proud to have got this far.  Without my gaiming friends and without this forum I doubt I would have started my little programming journey.. 
I would like to thank the following people for support, testing and suggesting:
Badger, Aprone, Wolf, Buzz, Trevor, Jess, Janaleen and rose.
Especially Badger who gave much encouragement, many ideas and finished the sound work when I was running out of steam.  Totally awesome dragon battle sounds for example.
Credit and a big thankyou for the music by Eric Matyas, www.soundimage.org
Last and not least, cheers for the encouragement and feedback from you lot.  There's some excellent ideas up there and I have even had time to put a few of them in.  The rest are on a list for future versions, or for future games.

Hello,
Well, my collection of games which I play is growing day by day with these great games. I have played dragon village for very long and I don't remember how much I finished it. But I would suggest only one thing, please improve the sounds and I know you are working on it. Good work, keep it up!

Best regards

@rocky glad you like the db page, its actually really nice to just be able to play games and write about them again.

@Best audiogamer, I'm afraid I am a bit confused what you mean about "improve the sounds",, I actually thought the sounds in the game were pretty cool, what with each square having its own ambience, some of which like the forest and the hills change according to what is happening, ---- the "stay A! Wake!" when you look at the watch tower made me laugh. I also like the way the music changes in the game  you assign people and the little stings when bad stuff happens.

I do agree there could be a wee bit more voice acting for individual characters like the witch and the river merchant, and perhaps more sounds for individual events in the game, but that would be an optional extra rather than a necessity.

Which sounds did you think were a in need of improvement?

Hello,
I think a few sounds need to be remade, They overlap sometimes. I don't know why it happens, but I'm going to grab a new copy of the game. Who knows if I have been running an old version of the game?

Best regards

Hmmm, overlapping? I didn't notice that  but if it happens again you should probably take note of where and what you were doing since it sounds like a bug.

OK.
So, get some workers with gods and golds to king in bridge.
After that, another people will wayt on those people. Those starring people can get this ring.
This same with road to east. Some workers can take food to near village and those, who wayt on those folks can find goat.

how does one find the toad??? I did all the other witch requests but that one. I know the hint said its near the river and I have fished and fished nothing, and lastly, whats up with these outlaws keep popping up? its actually nerve racking. I got them down to about 25, and they just jumped back up to 80. this is ridiculous man, I am almost at day 300. playing on the difficulty before the last. dragon has been defeated 100 days ago

OK, there is flood, but for some reason is good. Ofcourse, to get to the flooded fields some workers, where You have this quest and they will find something.
This is just for spoilers.
But this thing, how to win this game and destroy dragon I don't know also.
