From Open Perpetuum

Few claim to understand the Industrial Trust, or why it works equally and without complaint in all three nations. Fewer still understand the Laird - while the Gargoyle disappears into the woodlands, and the Symbiont will intensely study a flower, the Laird’s simple work ethic shows as it wanders from the tiniest patch of flora to another, harvesting what can be had while gently making sure not to destroy the plant, even as a Mesmer’s shattered remains stand five meters away. In a world torn apart by war... the Laird quietly tends the gardens.

Common uses

Laird is commonly used by new industrialists and has very few uses outside of that. Don't overlook the demobilizer resistance however, it can be useful in certain situations.


MK2 bot is an improved version of a normal bot. Typically, it recieves additional bonuses, better fitting space, 50% more cargo and slightly higher speed when equipped. MK2 bots also require at least level 1 of Hi-Tech Robot Specialist extension and recieve additional bonuses from this extension

Aside from statistical advantages, Laird MK2 gets a 1% bonus to harvested amount and +1 head and leg slots.
