Good update, looking forward to WTF the red robed people are doing...

Typing that reminds me of mother of learning. Which is a compliment!

In response to the author’s question. First prioritize farming, implemented among 100,000 people even a reduction in a few percentage of people farming would result in a few thousand extra people who would be perfect for hiring to work on new projects. Second, the compulsory education and Mana Tax, that is likely to greatly benefit the farmers and help the farming revolution even further, not to mention give the newly unemployed at least some source of income if nothing else. Third the financial reform is going to be necessary in the long term for helping the economy keep up with the industrialization, and with how slowly it will have to be implemented to not screw everything up (Cato may be an old man before fiat currency can be safely implemented) that should be started right away. I’d also work on the printing press, but I’d find a merchant I’m willing to work with and give them the schematics for it with the promise to help if politics comes into play or for Cato to help if they run into technical problems. The device is simple enough in concept that it should be able to be created without too much intervention once someone with enough capital understands the concept and the financial opportunities. No need to spend money or much time on it, but it will be good to have later on, in particular to spread the steelmaking concepts far and wide so that by the time we’re ready for heavy industry there will already be a healthy steel industry to support it throughout the kingdom. The bowguns are fascinating, but now that they are out in the world, they are likely to spread by themselves and be improved automatically by the market, especially if the mana tax starts to become commonplace along with steelmaking which would mean any well-off peasant could order a bowgun and create his own ammo. If possible, encourage the nobles to train peasants into armies to fight and hopefully eradicate the zombies (assuming the zombies don’t mutate in response and become more fearsome, in which case hopefully by then an industry to support the development of industrial warfare will hopefully be in place), this should also hopefully help the peasants gain power peacefully instead of descending the country into civil war which would be detrimental to future plans. Once the mana tax and education has been made self-sufficient then focus on experimentation, likely of magical nature, but subject to current situations and Cato’s own preference, but him knowing some fundamentals of how magic work would likely open up a lot more opportunities and ideas. Once the farming revolution is completed then they can work on implementing the Industrial Revolution, with the standardized units, basic education, essential regulations, and other requirements being completed as needed. Hopefully by this time the financial reforms will begin to bear fruit, and much of the later industrialization can be undertaken by some of the companies and corporations that spring up, with Cato just selling off documentations to the couple highest bidders. And then of course the industrialization will spread naturally and the bigger problems will be modernizing the elite to deal with the new society and prevent the corporations from getting too powerful.

So what does this have to do with technology uplifting? It was linked in a forum about it.

For some strange reason I imagine Tumore to be the cranky lady from New Adventures of the Time Machine where she's upset when the washing machine broke down in the town and you have a side quest to help fix it to get some kind of seal from her that grants you passage. /oK5IKuvAheM?t3225

Here is actually the intro of it all. watch?vIu-3o8h0Rj0&listPLudd_RuF2Kwzq6iWH_9bChI5oi2E6QR63&index1

LOL Underground monsters. I wonder if in our world seismographic equipment would detect these creatures?

There's another book that plays almost like yours except it's set in Virginia and like yours it isn't a technological uplifting and the guy has to learn the language by sneaking into a school and gets caught when he borrows the teacher's book as he used his laptop and notepad to write things down and could form basic sentences. I can't remember the name of that book but it's on Amazon. It has a weird title but it's a series.

Suddenly he goes from being confused and lost to blending in the culture? From zero to 100 in less then 4.7 seconds 4 liter engine? What is he in a BMW?

This fic was in a technological uplifting section and so far I see no mention of that. No tools with him to help or show the villager or anything useful he could give even though they at least understand each other and these cat people are used in other books by the way.
