A suggestion to counter thieves (Ramul) taking your goods.
For TL 3 (as there's now no huge benefit seeing as people can talk to everyone earlier), a button could be introduced in the Academy that says 'enlist police force' with a cost of - well, whatever you want. Then you no longer get the random event of one of your items being stolen (maybe instead you get one that says, "Your police force stopped thieves from stealing 1 diamond from your warehouses. You make a note to increase their salary.")
If you think a one-off payment for a permanent police force is too much, it could be at a charge of 1 coal/your Least Valued Object per 4 cycles.
