The sharecropping system is how F2P players will play the game. Players can harvest, plant, and sell to their heart's content.
Rented land will all be leased and not owned by the player. The land will stay assigned to their account as long as they can pay the leasing fee. Players will be able to lease larger and larger plots of land as they accumulate in-game resources.
Sharecroppers can establish new skill progression by working the industries of an NFT Farm.
Since potentially there are many more non-land owning Players than Land Owners, multiple Sharecroppers can build the same relationship with a single Land Owner’s Industry. This has no cumulative benefit, however. In terms of production and leveling, it only matters that it is actively managed and there is continuity of production.
Land Owners may also be Sharecroppers. Simultaneously, Land Owners can personally manage their own Industries as a Player, managing the Sharecroppers using their Land, and being journeymen as Sharecroppers on other Land Owner's Land.
