Tools are usable items used to assign villagers to a job. Plain townsfolk prefer to have a tool in hand, which they can be given in the Kingdom. Tools must be purchased from various sources - some of them from vendors - for varying prices. When players purchase a tool from them, the tool will show up in a rack in front of the vendor. This will attract an available villager nearby to grab the tool.
Once villagers pick up their items, they're assigned to the job respective to that item and will carry out their proper tasks until they lose their tool. If a villager is attacked by a monster, they will drop their item first and then their coin. Items dropped by villagers are free to be picked up by greedlings and taken away. If it is safe to do so, villagers attempt to pick up dropped items again and reequip them. Greedlings can also take away tools on racks, such as scythes purchased outside of the walls.
The three first and most basic tools are acquired with their respective vendors. These vendors are situated primarily in the base. They are able to sell either bows, hammers or scythes to the monarch, for their respective prices. Players can store up to four of the same tools in the vendor's racks at a time.
Like the banker and the merchant, vendors cannot be attacked by the greed. Even if all the walls are broken and the town is completely invaded by trolls, the vendors will continue their task of selling tools as if nothing happened.
