Appointed on the nobles screen.


The bookkeeper is an appointed noble who updates the stocks and created wealth screens with more accurate information. The bookkeeper needs to work in an office to do this job. The bookkeeper uses the record keeper skill, which grants the profession clerk.

The desired level of accuracy can be set in the settings menu from the nobles screen (when the bookkeeper is highlighted). To increase above the lowest level of accuracy, the bookkeeper needs a meager office. They must work not only to attain an accuracy level, but also to maintain it. When first assigned, a bookkeeper spends a long time creating a full list of the stocks, but once done, it takes only a bit of time to maintain this level of detail (even at maximum quality), so most of Urist McBookkeeper's time can eventually be assigned somewhere else.

Curiously, a bookkeeper does not require writing materials such as paper or scrolls to perform his job. Bookkeepers will be unable to do their jobs if they cannot grasp, though.
